    I went to the melting pot for the first time for Thanksgiving. Our server was the nicest young man, and he did a great job, but having said that sometimes our drinks came out very slowly, but it seemed that was an issue with the bartender not the server. the food was good and it was fun, if a bit over priced. My only complaint is there is way too much salad dressing on the salad but most places put way too much dressing on the salad. I don’t get why people don’t understand that the lettuce does not have to be completely slathered in dressing. It’s nice to get a taste of just greens sometimes. Now I sound like a grumpy old person other than that the melting pot was fun, but I would not go back next year mostly due to the price.

    Our waitress was pleasant and great, and she checked to see how we were doing, and let us take our time to enjoy all the great flavors and food selections for our 4-course meal, and checked on us and asked if we wanted more of any of our items, which we did ask for more because they were delicious!!

    The food was excellent but the waitress had clearly not been trained to provide the extra service you'd expect with a $200 meal. Opening a bottle of wine was not easy, let alone pouring the wine in the glasses! It was not a busy night in the restaurant so the staff was constantly chatting in the background which didn't add to the ambiance of a Thursdate We have been to many Melting Pot locations but never again to this one in Albuquerque

    I requested add one ( teddy bear, 3 roses, 3 chocolate covered strawberries and a champagne toast with rose petals). We got the roses, teddy bear and petals but no strawberries and no champagne. They didn’t charge us for it so I don’t really care too much. The waiter would show up once every 20-30 minutes and take 15-20 minutes to bring our drinks each time. Food was decent but not really worth the price. It was a good experience and good date night but we won’t be going back again.

    Waitress was pretty good, the seating was incredibly uncomfortable to the point where we left and our backs were hurting, the table was small and they really don’t give you a lot of meat for the price they’re charging. For each category of meat you’d get 4 very small pieces of it for two people. For the amount of food you get they should be charging way less. You do all of the work and the waitress only comes to give you each pot and refill your drinks if you’re lucky. I honestly wouldn’t go back again simply because it’s overpriced for the amount and quality of food you’re getting.

    The food was great, atmosphere phenomenal, tailored service. There was a 3% kitchen surcharge. I don't mind my bill being higher, but its unconscionable for a company to think paying a living wage to its staff is an optional cost that should be passed down. Update: The Melting Pot responded two weeks after my review celebrating the great time. 🙄

    Our family enjoyed dining at the Melting Pot when we lived in Albuquerque, so when visiting recently we made sure to go. We were disappointed with this most recent experience, however. The vegetarian potstickers were not on the menu, but were included in the vegetarian combo without being listed, which disappointed our vegetarian as he would have ordered the create your own had he known they were available. The service was much less polished and attentive than previously. Apparently they no longer make the cheese fondue table side, but bring it out (tepid) from the kitchen premise, which diminishes the "show" aspect. The fun thing about Melting Pot--and what made us willing to pay the inflated price--was the overall experience including the table side preparation and exceptional service. I think we will give it a miss on our next visit to Albuquerque.

    We were greeted and seated promptly, however, it took 15 minutes for our server to take our order and we had to ask for him to take the drink order. I am not sure why he was so harried but he seemed to be running around the entire restaurant. A group of 4 that came in 1/2 hour after we did but had a different server were treated more timely. He did apologize but the timing of the entire meal was poorly managed. It as literally a 3 hour affair and most of that time was waiting

    Through a miscommunication our server didn’t know we were there. After a little time I asked if server was aware we were there. Management immediately rectified and made sure we were well taken care of through out the evening. All staff apologized and we were given a round of drinks on the house. My only criticism is that the sauces could be a bit more variety.

    Great food, small meat portions. Was out of the beer and cooking style we ordered. Sounded like US Foods was out of everything for months. Was surprised by the 3 percent kitchen surcharge- especially since we did all the cooking! Get over charged, we had 5 people and were charged for 5.5 people. Not sure why- 3 of them were kids.

    My husband and I go here every year. It's a special place to us and we love to take the time to enjoy this atmosphere, service and food. Eating there for our date this year was awful. Our server I think forgot about us multiple times as we didn't see him for about a half an hour in between getting our servings. We ordered two different items they were out of. We ordered cocktails and waited 25 minutes for our server to come back and "check on us". We asked about our drinks and he seemed shocked and forgot we didn't have them. Then returned without my drink and said he thought someone came to tell me they did not have my mix in stock (which is fine I know it happens). Then he charged us at the end on our receipt for this drink I didn't get. The service was just terrible and really made the experience a flop. Very disappointed...

    Don’t Eat Here!! Left review 26 days ago was told to email Melting Pot and restaurant would contact me and I’m still waiting and waiting…. Original Review: Used to be a great place not anymore We were about ten minutes early and got seated right away then sat and sat waitress took order for drinks and water and we sat and sat. Fondue was okay not worth $180 my salad wasn’t edible. We were rushed out because they were closing so didn’t get to eat chocolate fondue. I tipped 25% on top because the service industry is hard work but go anywhere else but here for your special night.

    The Melting Pot - AlbuquerqueResponded on June 23, 2022Sorry, for the delay our hospitality manager is no longer with us so Im reaching out to the reviews at this time. I am the GM, my name is Andre. Sorry you did not enjoy your last experience here. I happened to be here the night you dined with us, your reservation was at 7 pm, you departed our restaurant after 11 p.m. We close and seat our last tables at 8:30. So, I am sorry you felt rushed but the typical dining experience for two people is around 2 hours. We certainly did not rush you.
