    The restaurant is very understaffed at this time so our server was working hard to keep up but it was slower service than we would have liked. I do not fault our server- he was doing as well as he could

    The waitress was very kind and apologetic. She may have been given too many tables or something but she forgot our mojo seasoning in our cooking style and then just dropped the orange and lime in the pot. The table was slightly dirty, and everything just seemed to be off. I wouldn’t expect this level of service from any melting pot and it was slightly disappointing.

    We came to The Melting Pot for Mother’s Day last evening, and that will be our last time at the Annapolis location. We have been coming to Melting Pot since it shortly opened in the early 2000s, and if used to be my favorite place, but it has drastically changed. The service was terrible, our waiter disappeared for about 45 minutes and we had 3 to 4 fill in servers for him. Listen I get it everyone is shortstaffed because of the pandemic and things like that etc. we would’ve been totally understanding but don’t just disappear and not have anyone let us know us anything. Most of the time our drinks were not filled, and the people that did stop by seemed like they would rather be somewhere else than the place they were at. One of the weird things that we noticed this time is our server didn’t explain the process of how things worked like they usually do or at least ask, and we had a couple new people who had never been there before. Our server also talked us into the grill which was an absolute crap show. He never returned with the oil or the tongs to flip the meat, so we were just using a fork trying to not burn the meat. Only to bring back oil when the meal was almost over. In general the grill top was a bad idea for The Melting Pot franchise I think just stick with the pots. Another unprofessional thing that he did was at the end of the meal he just blurred the total out to my husband in front of our kids and everything else. He didn’t have a paper receipt and my husband like most people like should just go over the bill so he handed my husband the electronic machine. Then he said to us “oh if you want to do your tip in cash, that will be better because if you do it on this machine I have to split it with the busses, bar tender etc. and I would rather not do that.”I’ve been out to eat a lot of places and I’ve never had someone say that before. Also I normally don’t write reviews ever either. But I felt compelled to do so after last nights events. Bogus!

    Took our 11year old grandson out for “adult” dinner. We were seated near the service station and heard servers calls out all evening about the fact they were coming around the corner. Veggies were great but meats were way too marinated. Cheese and chocolate pots were good.

    Normally we love melting pot and the food is always fantastic. This time around, the waiter was new and not very attentive. I had to clear some of our glasses off our table myself and go to the bar to get some water because we never got refills. The manager came over to help clear and also give us our food but never apologized or asked how our our waiter was doing.

    Service speed was sub par, had to wait 20 min for a single beer, never got auto water refills (had to ask a few times), extra dipping sauces took 20 minutes to come out and by that time we had eaten 1/2 our food. Left ice cream cake with hostess and asked for it to be put in the freezer - when we asked for it to be brought out to eat, it was a melted mess of mush as if the hostess just set it on the counter for 2 hours. After trying to refreeze it for 10 minutes, it was brought again still dripping from the box with no extra forks or plates (waitress seemed oblivious). For $340 for 5 of us, I expect perfect service, constant water refills, and exceptional food and this time the first two were missing. Fortunately, this is our first bad experience at any Melting Pot so we're not blackballing them yet. On a positive note, food was fantastic as always even if they did skimp on the chocolate in the dessert fondues.

    Birthday Kyle is one of the best servers that we have ever had. He explained everything to us, was very into having a regular conversation with us and even made me a special little birthday plate for dessert! Will keep coming back and want him as our server. The front staff was also very helpful and pleasant. Will always recommend the Annapolis location!

    The Melting Pot simply needs to close. It was filthy. The bartenders clothes looked dirty and the establishment was even worse. We watched a waitress use the napkin from the silverware to sweep the food from under the table towards the middle of the floor, while we were still dining. They used their barehands to add ingredients into the pot. There was some type of dust or debris floating at the top of my Eiffel Tower drink, which wasn’t surprising. Shockingly, although the cheese and salads were nasty, the hot pot broth and the meat was decent. Not decent enough to return.

    Melting pot is a fantastic experience We were so full we couldn't eat the chocolate fondue which was part of our meal so we ask to take it with us. We were given a 1/4 cup of chocolate with assorted fruit and cakes. If we ate it there as part of the meal the pot would have been filled up. Also, ordered cheese fondue to go. Given 3/4 cup of cheese and lots of bread. No more carry out for us. Manager said they go by portions on take out.

    The Melting Pot - AnnapolisResponded on April 10, 2022I'm glad you had a fantastic experience! Four courses can be hard to conquer, so we're happy to offer to-go options for our cheese and chocolate courses. Our cheese and chocolate fondues are always prepared by weight, so we can guarantee the same experience on site or on the go, but we understand the difference in presentation and are looking into ways of improving the perception of our to-go fondues. Thank you for your insightful feedback and we look forward to serving you again!

    The Melting Pot is our favorite special occasion restaurant. It can get pricey but it’s so worth it. We always get the Fiesta cheese course, the Mojo cooking broth and any of the chocolate courses. Last night was the Caramel Turtle and Cookie Butter Crunch. There were 6 of us, so there’s a lot of reaching across each other but it’s a fun evening. It can get a little noisy sometimes, but generally just adds to the fun.

    Every time we go, the bill is more than it should be according to menu prices. The manager has to “make a special exception” to correct it. They don’t show you an itemized bill, just the total on their cc machine. I love the food but something seems a bit “off”.

    This location is not what it used to be. Our last 2 times here celebrating a birthday and stating it on your reservation the host asks if your there to celebrate an occasion you tell them and then your server never acknowledges your celebration. Service takes way too long to get anything to the the table. Just sad as now may just have to venture out to the Gaithersburg location where the service from the front to the back has been way better than the Annapolis location.

    My family and I went to dinner to celebrate my admission to nursing school and 5/7 of the group had never been but the waiter was super patient and helpful. He accommodated to our request for extra things or if we didn't like something, he was happy to replace it with something else. The food was great, my parents got "the bigger night out" on the dinner for two deal which brought seafood such as lobster and salmon and such and they enjoyed it a lot. You do have to cook your own food for the entree, similar to Korean bbq but its fun and it was for the experience. Overall loved it, but I will say going in a smaller group makes things a lot easier and quicker. Perfect for a dinner for 2. A bit on the pricier side but worth it considering you get what you pay for.

    This probably was one of the worst experiences I have had in a long time. Food took forever, always empty glasses and dishes on our plate. Had to find server to get final course. Never checked on the table and i literally could have just walked out and no one would have known. Instead, I still tipped 20 percent and gave the hostess the money for the tip and check.

    When the server was stirring the cheese she spilled it outside of the pot and never cleaned it up, she didn't come back often and we went awhile without getting refills, and it took awhile to get salt and pepper. The pot was turned off at the beginning, so we just sat there with food in the pot but it wasn't cooking. The manager had to have us all get up and go under the table to fix it. when she brought the desert we had someone in our party who had a strawberry allergy and at the beginning when we ordered all of the food we told the server to separate the strawberries because of the allergy and she did not do that. then by the time the desert came the pot was too hot and half way through eating desert the pot got really hot and started burning and smelling. Overall, she never came back to check on us and the manager came back to check on us a few times and even another server did as well who also helped us out.
