    Very romantic setting, great service. However, price point for essentially boiled meat was not up to par. Dessert was good but nothing was outstanding for $200+ for two ppl I was disappointed. I unfortunately will not go 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.

    The two-person booths in the claustrophobic hallway are cramped and uncomfortable. Our entire meal took a little over two hours. The food is overpriced, and then there is an unadvertised 3% added charge to help the kitchen staff earn a living wage. I would think it is the responsibility of the owner to ensure the living wage. I assume my tips also go toward that purpose.

    This was our first time here. We were celebrating a birthday. Wasn’t sure what to expect. We had a wonderful time. The service was good. The food was amazing. The only downside was the bathroom. Not very clean and out of paper towels. Hopefully they will fix that one issue. Because we definitely would come back.

    There was a set menu for Mother’s Day. The food was good but not great everything felt very commercialized not a fine dining type of experience but the price tag was way more than a fine dining experience. If I’m gonna pay that kind of money this is not where I want to eat. Granted that it was Mother’s Day the wait staff were very busy but we pretty much had to ask for everything and had to wait a long time to ask for more sauces more water. The bathroom was completely out of toilet paper and dirty basically the place felt more like an Applebee’s experience with a Ruth Chris price tag. Haven’t been to the melting pot in over 10 years and don’t plan on going back anytime soon.

    3 hours for a meal we didn't get to choose! If the restaurant chooses to have a price fixed meal on special occasions it shouldn't be to complicated to get it out to the table in a timely manner. We waited on average 15-20 minutes between courses! RIDICULOUS! Especially on Mother's Day.... where you are bound to have children who can hardly sit still for a three hour meal! Kudos to those kiddos they behaved wonderfully! All this and we waited 30 minutes passed our reservation time to be seated! I wont be going back.

    The Melting Pot - AlbuquerqueResponded on May 12, 2022Thank you for taking the time to give us a review. We sincerely apologize for the issues you experienced. Mothers day is one of the busiest days of the year and the goal is to make it special for every family that comes to dine with us. I want you to know that we will be using this feedback to coach the staff on how to be time effective and more aware of our guests needs. Being busy is no excuse for poor service and we are sincerely sorry for your poor experience. We hope to make this right.

    If you love cheese and chocolate this is the place. Whether casual or formal night out this is the place to be. It was my son and gf first time at The Melting Pot so treated them for prom night...we were they're Uber drivers🤣. They were in complete awe of the 4 course big night out selection. The Alpine and Bacon/Brie fondue were very yummy... The meats were nicely seasoned for Coq au Vin broth and then turtle dessert fondue ...oh my we were content afterwards! Will definitely be back in the future!

    Service was extremely slow. It took about 30 minutes just to get refills of water. The waiter brought us the broth but took another 30 minutes to bring the meats for our one guest out to our table. Very disappointing service.

I'm sorry you didn't have the best experience with us however, i will be using your feedback to coach our staff on timeliness. Entrees are to be brought out when the broth comes to a boil (6-10 minutes) so, i am very sorry about your service experience. we would love to make this right.

    We went to celebrate our anniversary and they made it a special experience for us. Our table was decorated with rise petals, there was a box of chocolate covered strawberries waiting for us, and we received a special "Happy Anniversary" desert plate at the end. The manager came by to make sure we were enjoying our evening. An overall wonderful night. The price is high, but the experience is wonderful.

    Horrible experience across the board. First round of drinks took 30 minutes. Cheese fondue was served without the charcuterie board we ordered. By the time the charcuterie board arrived all of the water in the melting pot had boiled away. Server then delivered salads, only one of which was correct. Took about 30 more minutes to get a second round of drinks and the correct salad. When the main course came the cooking method was incorrect. Complained to the manager and had some costs taken off the bill but would much rather have had a waiter that actually knew how to wait tables. Still cost me over $100 to have the worlds worst fondue experience. So if you’re interested in that - this is the spot for you.

    1st time going with a party of 7 and wasn't sure how the meal would go just because it is a big party and the times I have dined there it has always been just my wife and I. Also I never do a review so this is thanks to our waiter Kenneth. He was the best waiter we have had there EVER and thanks to Kenneth we will be returning for more meals. He was friendly from the get go, courteous, not rushing us through the courses, attentive, explained what would pair well as food combinations and made the experience perfect. Yes prices could be better but you pay for the experience and the quality of food is very delicious.

    The Melting Pot - AlbuquerqueResponded on March 18, 2022Hi LLTCL, thank you for posting your positive review. We value your time and always strive to provide fast and efficient service.
