My husband and I started a tradition about 5 years ago where we take our daughter on a date for Valentine's Day. Last year we brought her to the Melting Pot, we all had such an amazing experience on our first trip that we have decided that Melting Pot will be part of our tradition from then on. So coming back this year for our date was as spectacular as it was last year! And our server was amazing! We truly appreciate the melting pot and our server for making such a memorable night for us and our daughter! :-)

Absolutely I'd recommend the Melting Pot. It's always staffed with people who know the menu and who show value in your choosing to dine there. Also the manager helps his staff which makes the experience that much nicer.

Excellent service, from the hostess, to our server William, even the manager (Anthony?) Stopped by briefly to check on us. The food is excellent, nicely plated and presented with an explanation of cooking time and various dipping sauce. A great Valentine's dinner.

I have never had a bad experience here, the atmosphere is both wonderful for an early Valentine's date with my fiancé (as this outing was for) and even big parties with loved ones as we'd done in the past Regarding drinks, my fiancé LOVES the Bee's Tea and I ordered the Annapolis Flight which includes one 3oz glass of wine for each course, I thought they were very well paired would definitely get again. We ordered the Classic Alpine cheese fondue for the first course, which is a delicious mild option for those who may not be feeling super adventurous but want something more than cheddars. We both had Caesar salads for the second course and both had Steak Lovers for the entrée course (with coq au vin cooking style, though we usually go for bouillon, highly recommend either of them!). And for the chocolate fondue, we went for the Cookies and Cream one (though I also recommend the Smores one!). Four courses may sound like a lot but everything was perfectly portioned and timed so we left feeling full but not uncomfortably so. Our waiter made great conversation and was very helpful when we had questions. Overall, it was a wonderful experience as always and I definitely plan on coming back for my birthday in exactly 8 weeks!

Great service. Great food. The one thing I was disappointed in was that I had set the reservation up to be for a special occasion (Anniversary) and when we were seated, the hostess did confirm that they knew it was an Anniversary dinner. I was told by a few friends that a plate is normally brought out for this occasion, but that did not happen.

Our server was a very nice man but not trained well. We had several things that were not correct starting with my dirty martini I ordered. Once he returned to the table he gave my husband's mai tai to my 10 year old son who proceeded to take a big swig since it was in a fun tiki glass. Next, our plates of food to cook came out without the children's food. Our server was not attentive enough at all. The server at the table next to us was available twice as much as ours. I was getting up to complain when our server finally returned with the rest of the food. Unfortunately, I feel like he will end up being a great server but wasn't quite ready. I'm not sure if the bartender and the kitchen staff were new too or if it was his problem. Hence, we won't be returning any time soon. We spent well over $300 and gave the young man a nice tip. Your restaurant needs to step it up! There are too many other places to go in Annapolis.

Chuck, our server, made everything enjoyable, from introductions and drinks to something as boring as food safety tips. Mastery of cooking, vocal performance, and appropriate interaction with all 6 of us at the pots really made the evening special.

We had a great time. The only downside were the rude patrons who were sitting directly behind us. The kept bumping and pushing into the booth which was hurting my back. We told our waitress and she relayed the message to their waitress. He said something to them and they still wouldn't stop. In fact it got worse. I have a bad back so I left in quite alot of pain. We live over an hour away so that was not a fun drive. Our waitress was awesome and very personable.

Somewhat dissappointed as I included a message in my opentable reservation as this was a special occasion, wife and daughters birthday dinner. I the hostess acknowledge when we were seating but happy birthday was sung to two tables nearby but not ours. When I brought it up to the manager on my way out, he listened, but turned away to address another issue without any response. Bottom line, our 5 year tradition of have my girls birthday dinner at Annapolis Melting will end. I seriously doubt we will be going there again.

Enjoyed getting together with a group of friends for a night out. We enjoy the Melting Pot 1-2 times a year for a special occasion. It’s a pricy place for a regular dinner night out IMHO. Enjoy the ambiance and the fun of cooking your own dinner. The chocolate fondue dessert is the best part of the meal!

Our server was over all nice, but consistently forgot to bring refills, extra sides of sauces, the large spoon for the vegetables, and even a pen at the end when paying. She said on two occasions that we were really "making her work hard" almost as to make us feel guilty about cleaning off our table and getting refills on out water and soda. Quite passive aggressive. The entire experience took about 2.5 hours. Much longer then in the past. Unfortunately we will likely avoid going back because of the service. For the cost of the meal, we would have hoped for better service.

Despite it being Christmas Eve or maybe because it was, the place was packed but the waitstaff were upbeat and attentive. I felt bad about the staff having to work on Christmas Eve (I’m the mother of 3 sons who worked for years in food industry) but no one seemed annoyed to be there waiting on diners. Food was delicious as usual.

We enjoyed the experience and the booth for two. There were some larger parties in the restaurant and our food was delayed but it was Christmas Eve so, probably the exception. Really did like all the options for fondue and enjoyed the food immensely. We might go back and do a course at a time as 4 courses (we ended up doing 3) was so much food!
