Waited 5-10 minutes in lobby before our party was greeted.

We have eaten at several Melting Pot Restaurants over the last fifteen years. On a trip to Nashville in 2003 we asked the Manager of our hotel where we could get a late dinner, since our flight was late in getting us into town . He recommended The Melting Pot, which was within walking distance, and we were very pleased by everything from the food, the staff, and the ambiance. Since then we have eaten at that restaurant's facilities in several Florida cities, and throughout New York State (we live in the Albany Area.) I have recommended it to several friends and business associates, and my wife has as well.

Had a double date for valentines day. Had a wonderful romantic evening. We did this prior to seeing 50 Shades

Very good food and lots of fun. The dessert option was amazing. Most fun I've had eating in a long time. My son also enjoyed his meal and he's a fussy eater. But getting to dip his own made it fun. Loved the banana foster

This was a birthday date and our first time there. Although we had reservations, and was early, decided to stay at the bar. The bartender, Lilly, was fabulous!!! Funny, energetic, and very knowledgeable of the IPAs & wines. We had a good time with good food. We were skeptical of what to expect, but will be definitely going back.

The food was excellent and very fun to do my friend and I had a wonderful time it was an experience. They only thing we both didn't like was the music it was awful and irritating it's the only thing that made us want to leave, but everything else was great. Also our waitress was very friendly and took the time to explain our experience to us and what to do because it was our first time 😉 I think I will return but only if the music changes lol I don't think I can stand another 3 hours of that nonsense 😆

Waitress was great. Went on a Tuesday evening. It was nice and quiet. Everything was great.

The service was great. The rest of the experience was adequate at best and certainly not in line w/the cost of the evening. It could just be this particular location as all of our prior visits to Melting Pots in Orlando & White Plains, NY have been outstanding.

First time dining at a Melting Pot. Service from Morgan was excellent and the pace of courses was perfect. Really nice to be able to have a leisurely meal in a quiet location that facilitated lots of conversation.

The only issue we had is that it was very cold inside for a 6 pm reservation. Maybe next time we will ask for a table deeper in the building ....... they were not really able to warm the place up ..... that’s all...... otherwise we had a great time

Went to the Melting Pot in Albany for an anniversary dinner. Waiter provided good service and was very polite. For the amount of food you get for the 4 course experience, it’s over priced. The only thing that costed the restaurant any money to provide was the steak and lobster. Not worth $50. The meat portions were small. The main reason we came here was because we had a gift certificate. We were told we couldn’t use the certificate because it was a “holiday” (New Years day). It’s a gift certificate already paid for, there should be no restrictions. We called the manager over and he was not helpful and somewhat rude. He could have let us use our $25 gift certificate no problem but he didn’t. Our bill was $100 (no drinks). He’s a manager, his job is to over ride the system when necessary to make customers happy. Overall, kind of disappointed. Other than to use our gift certificate, we will not be back.
