The restaurant closed at 10pm which was when our reservation was for. It made us feel a little uncomfortable. They didn’t seem the happiest however our waiter was great.

Management is TERRIBLE. My friend found a piece of very sharp plastic in her mouth as we were eating our food. The manager was very nasty and condescending towards us when we complained about it. I have been coming to the melting pot every year for my birthday for the last 15 years. I will never be going back. I am just appalled at how the manager handled this situation. Completely unacceptable.

Took my daughter here for her 9th birthday. Made reservations and they had a birthday card waiting for her! The server also made a wonderful "happy birthday" plate with a small piece of dessert and lit a candle for her. We were so impressed and my daughter said it was the best birthday dinner she ever had. Thank you!

For the price, I feel like the service could have been better. I use to like going there only because I never felt rushed and it's a great place for visit and chat. But the service and presentation has really gone down hill lost covid. Prices have stayed the same, but service is just subpar.

The food was very delicious as always. The whole experience always seems a bit overpriced but we left happy so I guess that’s the important thing. We were celebrating our first anniversary (on the actual date of our anniversary!) and because they asked us if we were celebrating anything I thought that there might have been some cute writing on a dessert plate or something. But nothing ever came of it. Ah well. Overall we had a good time.

Took my wife for a nice quiet dinner and Melting pot never disappoints. Ask for a table in Lover’s lane and it nice and quiet and private. Great dinner experience for when you don’t want to be rushed.

We dined in a room to the side of the main area. It was a nice spot and we felt very private. Our servers were fantastic and the food was outstanding.

Delicious food, great variety, wonderful helpful service. We had never been before and Kailey (sp?) did a great job guiding us through the experience. Definitely on the more expensive side but great for a celebration or a special time!

I haven’t eaten at your establishment multiple times and it has been a pleasant experience but Saturday night was not up to the expectations or the quality that I have had in the past. When I made reservations first of all they didn’t tell me it was in the bar area. I was disappointed because it was quite noisy and we felt we were forgotten at times. We asked if there was booth available but there was not. This would be something that should be explained before arriving.

Great food, good value. Our waitress was awesome!! It had been years since I had been to a Melting Pot. She was patient in answering our questions and helpings us choose our dinner. She even went above and beyond when my 6 year old daughter spilled her kitty cocktail on her white jean jacket. She helped us get the stain out! She even made note that we had event to get to by 6 and made sure we left on time. Probably the best service I've ever received at any restraunt!

It was a great experience like usual. The server seemed to rush us just a little and comparing the amount of food for the kids meal versus the adult; I realized adults pay a lot more for not that much more food! Regardless, we love this place and never have less than a 4/5 experience so will absolutely be returning.

I have been telling all my friends and family that they need to go here! They give you the opportunity to donate to St. Jude Hospital and win a little something if you donate. The hostess brought my fiancé and me to our booth and handed us a handwritten card wishing us a happy anniversary with a coupon inside. The manager came up to us and personally wished us a happy anniversary and checked how everything was going. Our server was OUTSTANDING in every way. The Melting Pot staff truly made us feel like their only customer, which is really special. I loved the ambiance and it was the perfect place to celebrate a great day!

I brought my Aunt and Uncle for their first 4 course fondue experience. We all had a wonderful time. The service we received was excellent, our waitress explained all the courses and how she was preparing that went along with all the options for each each course. It was a perfect evening!
