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.

A great place to go for special occasions. It is expensive, but worth it for the experience. We got the 4 course lunch and highly recommend doing so for a filling and enjoyable meal.

First time visit and an anniversary celebration.
Notified restaurant when reservations were made of the anniversary.
Our waitress was not attentive. Noticing that we needed assistance, we received great service from another server Matthew who would ask us if we needed anything.
The food was good and the fondue experience was fun. But it will be a long time before I drive from Santa Fe to ABQ for a dining experience with poor & indifferent service.

I hadn't been to the Melting Pot for a long time and found out what I was missing on Thanksgiving Day! It was just great! Alonzo, although he said he's fairly new, was superb: personable, helpful ideas, professional and friendly--a definite asset! I will be back soon and bring my son and his family!

This was our first time here. We were celebrating our daughters 17th birthday. I was called prior to our reservation and asked if we wanted to add a teddy bear, roses and chocolate dipped strawberries. We wanted all of that, but the teddy bear was not there when we arrived. I really liked the private room we were in, but would have also preferred background music. There was none, so all we could hear if we weren't talking was the waiters/waitresses walking and talking. Our skewers were a bit crusty. The cheese and chocolate fondu was delicious. Our entree was ok. Was not expecting to cook my own meat. I guess for the amount of money they charge, I was expecting so much more. I would like to go back, but only for the cheese and chocolate fondue. Also, the Blackberry Sage Lemonade was awesome!

I've been dining at the Melting Pot for over 30 years at different locations. Fondue is a nice change from most restaurants and cooking your own dinner gives you an excuse to spend a long time over dinner and enjoying company and conversation. Once upon a time, the dinners would have so much food that we would overeat. I actually was still hungry when I got home this time. We are relegating The Melting Pot to our "Once in a Blue Moon" category.

The Melting Pot is proof that high price doesn’t translate to high class/quality. The dipping veggies looked old, the fruits had brown spots, and the our waitress seemed super unhappy to be there. For $60 per person, skip this place and head to Vernon’s or Antiquity- true high class dining.

The Wisconsin cheddar cheese never seemed to get up to temperature, and was a little beery which I didn't care for. For my entree I ordered 'The French Quarter. I swapped the Cajun shrimp for extra Cajun chicken. I didn't much care to the sausage, but the Cajun chicken and steak were phenomenal. The table decided on smores chocolate for dessert and we added the extra plate with cheesecake, creme puffs and rolled wafer things, that I forget the name for. I wasnt sold on the cheese, but the entree and dessert more than made up for it. Definitely going back.

My 10 year old twins picked this resteraunt for their bithdy dinner. Our waiter was a nice guy, however he ruined our cheese, the time between courses was way to long and I mentioned 3 or 4 times it was their birthday and he never acknowledged it. We were sat in a room all on our own and it felt like we were forgotten. It was not special for them and I will not return.

Could’ve been better. Didn’t like the fact that if you get the four course meal and your sitting at a table w one burner you can only pick one cheese and one chocolate or one seasoning when your meal includes your own choice per person price But they were kind enough to move me to a two burner table after I ask about that. Good for the experience I would definitely go back for the chocolate.

My wife and I have been coming here for 18 years. We went to celebrate our birthdays. It has always been our special place. This last experience may change that, unfortunately. Our waitress was overbooked and we rarely saw her. We are used to taking our time there, but we were seated at 7:30 and didn't leave until after 10:15. The food and presentation also seemed to be subpar from what we are typically used to. The fillet minion tasted like sirloin, the lobster tail was the smallest we've had and we had to stir / make our own chocolate. The presentation wasn't as special as we're used to, either. The dessert dippers looked like someone grabbed a bunch of stuff and threw it on a plate. We are pretty humble folks and rarely complain. If we were spending $100 it would be one thing, but when you drop $200 or more you expect the next level. We were polite and didn't complain, as we didn't want to tarnish our night any more than we had to. Hopefully it was just a bad night.

This was our first time to eat at a Melting Pot and we had an excellent waitress, service and atmosphere. My only suggestion would be to change vendors on the tonic water as it tasted more like soda water. The bartender said the brand just wasn’t very “minerally-tasting”. No problem, I ordered something else but that was the only very very minor disappointment in an otherwise great experience.

We come here regularly and usually get great service. Not this time! We waited forever for drinks, went 90% of the meal without refills, and at point one point our server referred to us as “those fu* people”, within ear shot of us and our kids. Not only unporofessional but also unwarranted. As a former server, I stacked the plates 1) for easier removal from our table and 2) because there was several empty plates scattered about the table and we were running out of room. By the sounds of it, maybe utensils got dropped in the back? Not sure how this would be our fault? Maybe we got a novice server but we kept having to ask other employees for more things, such as bread, because our sever was no where to be found. Had this been our first time here, we wouldn’t be back! Fortunately we dine here regularly and typically get phenomenal service.

This is a nice experience but it is pricey. Our wait staff forgot us several times and after waiting 20 minutes to get my bill picked up I walked to the front to pay and found her testing a new employee. The management should really consider not giving this job to someone who is actively taking care of customers. The food is great.

I know a 4-course meal takes some time, and we've eaten at The Melting Pot before, but this visit was too long. Our waitress was very friendly and tried hard but she seemed over-tasked which left us waiting too long between courses. The food was delicious, we don't go out for nice dinners often and really enjoy fondue. It's not that we minded the time together, but when you're paying for a sitter, a 2+ hr meal really adds $ to the night in a hurry. We saw the near by table's waitress 3 times for our every one visit. Also, not the best ambiance as we could hear the near by diners' conversations easily too.
