The food was great. Our waiter was excellent, but they have the wiaters on so many table you end up waiting awhile for your next course.

The food was great. There was nice ambient lighting in the room we dined in. The only drawback was that our waitress was a bit frazzled, so we went a whole meal without anything to drink. However, she recognized her mistake and handled the situation well, offering us an item off the menu for free to make up for the inconvenience.

When I made the reservation I said that it was for a birthday. I guess I thought something would be said, but nothing was ever said or done; very disappointing. The food was good, but I think overpriced.

Once again The Melting Pot hits it out of the park! This is my third time here and I've never had a bad experience. I recommend asking for Victor to be your server, he goes above and beyond. He brought me a birthday dessert (pictured). He cut the strawberry flower himself!

I have visited several Melting Pots. This one, has very friendly staff. They will willing & pleasantly, answer any questions you have about the menu. ((Some Melting Pots take a VERY long time to have a 3 "course" meal- which is not their largest. Litterally, you have to plan at least 2 hours, to go eat & you end up sitting for a while in between stops from your waiter/waitress...)) This Melting Pot is right on point with making sure your meal is "flowing", & not 1/2 hour waits betwewn each course! This is the only one I have ever been in & out, in an hour. Great food & Great service.

I haven’t had fondue since my Mom served it For dinner on special occasions 40+ years ago. This was a first for my wife and I to try fondue together, and we very much enjoyed the ambiance and service. We recommend The Melting Pot for a special occasion dinner or to meet friends and enjoy.

There was trash and sunflower seeds under our table. Dirty, used napkins as well. Kudos to the staff for cleaning up the filth as soon as we saw it. They were out of key ingredients. Cocktails were slow to be filled. For $170, I would have expected better.

Melting Pot is always a good time. We had a new server, but she was supervised by someone who kept an eye on the few things that were temporarily overlooked. Overall every single server was fantastic and, as ever, the food was enjoyable and high quality.

One note - would have loved to bring a local wine with us. Happy to pay a bottle fee, too. But MP says no outside wine. :( Will let the mgr know and hope they expand their wine list!

My first time at Melting Pot and didn’t know what to expect. Reserving through Open Table was excellent and highly recommend it. However, The Melting Pot is not a place to go if your starving and want to eat right away. I didn’t like the fact that you had to cook your own food. It made it difficult as most the table ordered seafood and I’m allergic so they had to wait until all my food was cooked. The seasonings were on point and the dessert was great. But, $140 meal ticket for two people who have to cook their own food.. not worth the value. Wasn’t impressed

While expensive, you get a great 4-course meal, experience and service. It's well worth the cost.

We go every year for our anniversary and it's been great so far (11 years).. This year we were seated in the casual dining area. Very dissatisfied in the seating. We could hear at least 3 other conversations from our table. We were dressed up and it felt like we were in the wrong restaurant. I guess we need to request different seating next time. That's if my wife wants to try it again... The server (Brent) was great and food was really good. Those two things helped make up for the poor atmosphere...

We had a reservation and even with that they seated 2 other tables first that just walked in, we were there about 5 minutes early and it wasn’t so busy that we shouldn’t he’s been seated at the time of our reservation. The individual who seat us offered a drink for kids (without seeing any price) which ended up being $5.95 each.... little pricey, I realize you pay for the ambiance, but a slight warning would hav been good, since he told the kids first prior to asking us as parents.

We came here to try chocolate camp for the kiddos. It was our first time here and we were also celebrating an anniversary. Overall, it was a great experience and my family was happy we tried it. My children and my husband enjoyed chocolate camp. It's not only for children, it's a chocolate haven.

My husband and I went to celebrate our 1 year wedding anniversary and absolutely loved it. It was a nice romantic setting. We sat in a booth and Our table had rose petals and a single rose set on our table to celebrate our anniversary. The waiter Victor was very nice and patient with us since it was our first time going there. He gave us great recommendations and all the staff was just as nice. Food was amazing! Would definitely recommend this place to all my family and friends. We will definitely be going back for future date nights.

The food was amazing but they wouldn't answer their phone after asking to call back. I called back 8 times after checking the number, all during business hours, no response. I had to drive down to make sure I had a table for my anniversary. If my wife didn't really want to I would have gone someplace else. As it is not sure if I would return.
