The Melting Pot - Albuquerque Ratings and Reviews
Arrived at 6:30PM. They said the couldnt find our reservation. We showed them our confirmation and After 7:10pm, and watching 3 other couples walk in after us and seated, we were taken in the backend to a table (3x3) that had one seat with another small chair pulled up to it. We said this isn't what we expected and that we were going to leave, and leave we did. This is one of our favorite restaurants, but they definitely dropped the ball tonight.
This was our first time dining here and we couldn't have been happier with our experience. The food and service were top notch and my wife was already planning for our next trip to come here even before we had left from dinner. We will certainly be back soon with family and friends.
I already sent this in response to Melting Pot's survey and invited them to contact me if they'd like to rectify the situation; since they didn't, I'll go ahead and leave the feedback.
When I go out and pay $60-80 per person for a dining experience, I have this wild and crazy notion that it will not include sitting next to someone who thinks it's appropriate to play Disney sing a long videos on a tablet at the table for their kids and, you know, singing along. Since that's apparently not the case for the Melting Pot anymore, I won't be going back there.
If that's the experience I'd wanted, I'd have gone to Chili's.
Our server (Garrett) also couldn't be bothered to heat up the last course for us, we were more or less left to our own devices with the ingredients cold and unstirred on the burners.
So, so unimpressed. If that stuff doesn't bother you and you're really jonesing for fondue, be my guest. If you're expecting value for the money, you may want to try somewhere else.
My son is turning 13, and this was his choice for his birthday meal. If it were up to him, he would have had the dessert only menu! I must admit, that was a fun course to consume! The food was prepared beautifully and very tasty. I enjoyed the cheese portions, very tasty and bountiful. He also had a fun drink "Sharkbite" (no alcohol) that was delivered with 'chum bucket' and all!
The food wasn't as good today as it normally is... the chocolate tasted almost like there were chemicals in it... the service wasn't great. The Melting Pot is usually amazing. I left disappointed this visit. It was defiantly NOT worth what I paid for it :-(
Honestly, if we had better service, our experience would have been better. We could hear the other servers being helpful and checking in with their tables, but our server was MIA. We waited excessive amounts of time for water refills, plates, and courses. We probably won’t visit this Meltinh Pot again, but we will visit others.
Came in with my family and they sat us next to a group meeting room. Food was mediocre. Garlic should be sautéd in butter before the wine is added. This was not the case this time, and the garlic was very bitter. The wine should have been cooked before the cheese was added. This was not done properly, either. Our server dumped it all in and then sprinkled nutmeg on top, rather than adding it to the melt. Nutmeg on top is strange and unappetizing; but we mixed it in and ate it because it's cheese, of course.
I felt like the waiter was attentive to us and he was very helpful with the menu, but he needed better training from his supervisor. No culinary skills and no understanding of what makes a good flavor. He brought the Coq a Vin out already put together (by someone in the kitchen?) and it was very good.
We had a reservation for a party of 7 and got seated in a separate room. Floor was dirty, it seemed it had not been cleaned after multiple seatings with food and crumbs all over floor. Table surface felt dirty as well. We visited for the experience than the actual food but for the high end prices we hoped to have found a cleaner establishment.
For the amount of money that you are going to pay for dinner the service was subpar. The server was highly unattentive along with essentially having to beg people to bring you drinks overall the experience was pretty horrible. Needless to say this will be the last time I will be visiting.
The burner at our table ran too low in temperature.
We were here for Christmas Day, with a fixed menu. The cheese course fondue, was warm not hot so the vegetables cooked only slowly. The cool cheese was clumsy. The chocolate course was tepid. It was like a cool chocolate sauce and not even warm. I expect on a cold winter day to have not food. We had to call the server back to heat the bullion to boil so the food would cook. I think for safety reasons she was instructed to keep the temp too low...and folks do not know any better in Albuquerque. I will try this location one more time, but I will not continue to give my patronage if the fondue can not be heated appropriately. The St Clair flight those was very good. They also were very good at accommodating my gluten free needs. Our server was very personable and attentive. At the end said she she believed the burner was faulty.
We went to celebrate a birthday. We took our two girls 4 and 8. We all had fun with fondue eats. Great for couples but the nature of fondue multi-course meal is a bit long for children. We all enjoyed ourselves and the service was fantastic. Absolutely recommend just keep in mind the timeline if you take kids.
