We don't go out often but do make the Melting Pot our anniversary destination: for the last 12 years. We will continue. One thing I think might be looked into is the seats need to be firmer! I feel like I need a booster seat and end up sitting on my feet to be able to reach.

The cheese and broth/main course were delicious and I appreciated the veggie options. The salad was about what you would get from panera and I'm pretty sure the "chocolate" was just syrup. It wasn't even hot and stayed liquid, was super shiny in an unnatural way, and absurdly sweet despite being "dark chocolate." For the money, the salad and dessert make the four course not worthwhile. I recommend only getting the cheese and/or main course.

Celebrating my grandson’s 6th birthday was a great adventure. The staff was very friendly and gracious in recognizing the importance of the event. His first fondue, he was thrilled to cook his own food. The chocolate fondue and the special cake with a candle was the topping on a fun evening. He is a very sophisticated eater so I am sure Melting Pot will be a request.

I saw some ads about melting pot being kid friendly, so I took my son for his b-day. The waitress was snooty. And we were informed a full meal would take approx 4 hours. I wish that was on the website. It was tasty, but service was poor and prices outrageous. Places that charge that much usually cook the food for you. Melting Pot - your facebook ads were misleading.

Great place to go anytime but especially when you are celebrating something special! Way too much food so am thinking of not going for four courses but going for just the cheese and chocolate:)) And just get a different cheese and chocolate each time I go. We had three vegetarians in our group and they were very good about changing the items to make them vegetarians. They got the yummy baked potato cheese and withheld the bacon. I am getting that next time....with bacon. Definitely a place to go for fun and celebration....or anytime you want something yummy.

We had a very pleasant experience here. Our server Killian was EXCELLENT. She made us feel very welcome and comfortable and accommodated our needs. She also answered every question we had and was very friendly and kind. We were seated in a very private corner of the restaurant which was very nice, as well. Friendly staff, quality food, and a nice romantic, quiet environment. The prices are a little high, but it’s a great place for a splurge.

Very fun and enjoyable experience. Downgraded service not because of our waitstaff, he was great but because the prep staff did not add water to the pot so the first course - cheese fondue did not melt properly/timely and came out lumpy. Rest of the dining was great and will go back.

The food was amazing. Our server constantly checked in on us making sure we had enough food items for the fondue. When ordering alcoholic beverages they stated it might be a few minutes due to how busy they were but we had our drinks in about a minute tops. With how busy it was it was not too loud and still received great service in a timely manner. 10 out of 10 for sure. The place is more expensive than most but definitely worth the experience and taste of the food. They decorated the table nicely as well with a rose and pedals per my request for a date night with my wife.

It took us nearly 3 hours to get through our meal. By the time we were done my daughter was acting up so we tried to get out quickly. Then when we got home and checked our receipt, we were overcharged by almost $50 for extra food we didn't get. We didnt check there because it was getting late so we just gave the waitress our card to pay so we could get out of there. Most likely won't be going back.

We went to the Melting Pot to celebrate my wife birthday. The experience was fantastic from the moment we walked in. We were greeted promptly and shown to our table, which was in a quiet area with three other tables. Each one has a high wall around it to allow you to dine without having other conversations or dinner noises intruding. The food is always good, yes you cook it yourselfbut preparation is a big part of the quality. The servers were always there to make sure you had no needs, but never made you feel rushed. We will definitely be going back.

Potatoes need to be pre-cooked longer if using the grill at the table. Left ours on for 15 minutes and still weren't soft. Ran out of cheese fondue long before we were done, so a little more than was provided would be nice. We were full when we left.

The restaurant smells awful, the food was mediocre at best. The broth that was cooling kept blowing in my face ( the whole restaurant needs better ventilation) the desert portion was probably the best part and they skimp out in that bu giving you toddler sized portions. Will probably never return. The value for your money is definitely not worth it.

Unfortunately I am not a fan of this location. The ambiance is very vanilla and so is the food overall. The menu is confusing and hard to understand the pricing. The best part of the meal is dessert. Way better places to eat in Albuquerque for the price.

If the lighting wasn't so bright, and the booths had more space I might give it a better rating, but not today...HOWEVER Josh was outstanding! He gets a 5 star rating:)

Nice ambiance and courteous staff. Would like the individual 'booths' to have a little more light available if desired. However, the overall experience was excellent. Would easily recommend The Melting Pot to anyone, and we will be back.

It was an amazing experience but the service was slow. My husband had to get up and find a server to check on us because we waited for someone to take our order and even our drink order for 35min after we sat down. But other than the service being slow it was a great dinner.

I understand this experience is supposed to take a while, however it took more than 3 hours to do the 4-course meal. We waited more than 20 minutes between each course when we were done with it and towards the end of the experience it seemed as though we were forgotten altogether
