We had a great time! The server responded well to our requests for alterations, the service was fast, and the food was great. I would definitely recommend as a date place.

Celebrated an anniversary here, our first time at a restaurant of this type. We loved the choices and our server had great suggestions. The atmosphere for our occasion was private and perfect. All the wait staff were very nice and helpful.

Great great great...awesome food and service...i forgot how awesome the food is...elk and salmon ...amazing duck and scallops...not super great...duck was rubbery...scallops where too fish for me...maybe better on cast iron. Chocolate Smores...let them put gram crackers on the side...make the chocolate grainy instead of smooth.

Melting Pot was such a unique dining experience! In addition to the food itself being superb, the service, presentation, and atmosphere were all perfect. None of my family had ever been to a fondue restaurant before, so we weren’t entirely sure what to expect. Our server (Robert) did a fantastic job of walking us through the experience. Can’t wait to visit again and try some new things!

We had a great time! The food as always was really good although I was a little disappointed they were out of my favorite main coarse select of the Mojo. It really is the best option but I survived and the food still was fantastic!

The 29th was our first visit to the Melting Pot. The ambiance is cozy. I went online to review the menu before we dined so I could understand the ordering process, the prices, and the types of dishes offered. There were a few surprises in the seasonings and food offerings but the evening was totally enjoyable. We were there two hours but were there to celebrate a special occasion.

Our reservation was right at opening time so restaurant was not busy at all. Waitress rushed us through our service, had to be reminded to bring utensils, kids menus, refill beverages and didn’t explain anything which would have been nice for the first time patrons in our party of 5. We split cooking methods between a pot and a grill (I would recommend) but variance in cook times was pretty substantial. Good option but maybe not the most practical. Food was ok but was hoping for a better experience for the $200 ticket. Probably won’t be going back unless for a special occasion dessert.

The melting pot in the highlands is always a perfect date night setting for us. You're guaranteed consistency- the drinks are always well made, the food is nothing but the best of quality and every member of staff genuinely seems to be enjoying their job. If I didn't love eating there I would want to work there! The management team obviously know what their doing- keep up the great work. Hope to be back soon.

Only grip I thought little pricey. But knew it going in. My wife's birthday so was worth it. The waiter was great and food spiced just right. Loved the quiet couples spots in back. I will go back. Fyi my dogs loved the left overs- true test as they only eat the best tasting meats! Lol

I went there on a date. We were set by a bunch of loud drunks not very romantic. Fun still because, our waiter was amazing. He made it fun and worth while. I would like to come back again and eat quietly as much as I paid, however I would def recommend this place. bonus was the free strawberries.

Food was great through main course. Once we asked for extra sauce. Meal went downhill from there. The flaming turtle was cold and we repeatedly told server it was cold. We were told we needed to wait for it to heat up. It never got hot. We finally asked for check. There was nothing done or concern that one whole fondue dish was cold. We have eaten here numerous times before and have never had this experience. Totally disappointed.
