My husband and I went for our first anniversary. The service was excellent and the food was great. I have a gluten allergy and they were very accommodating and knowledgeable about cross-contamination. We’ll definitely be back!

Kitchen was a little backed up. It took about an hour for our salads to arrive. What is usually a 90 minute meal was about 3 hours. Food was delicious as always!

This is definitely an "occasion" restaurant. The fondue dining experience is totally unique and The Melting Pot does it very well. It took a while for someone to greet us and get our drink order, but after that, they recovered nicely. We have to drive a long way to get there and the bill is large, but we love it and go at least twice a year.

My friend had never been to the Melting Pot before and didn’t know what to expect. After the first course she couldn’t stop raving about how amazing the food and the atmosphere was! We’ll definitely be back soon!

What an amazing overall EXPERIENCE! My first time going and I LOVED it. The service was great and very helpful and patient, unfortunately I don’t remember her name but ask for the waitress with blonde and pink hair. Every course of food was delicious. And The management was attentive with check ins.
Usually a place has really good food and not so good of an atmosphere or vice versa but honestly No complaints 10/10! Definitely will be coming back!

Set menu. $50 a person because valentines weekend. That was all fine as they told us beforehand. What they failed to mention was the mandatory 18% gratuity. I probably would of left the same if not more, but I would Of like to know beforehand that was being added.

We booked the Romance package initially online, but was later called to advise our time would be earlier & for the Valentine's Day special (which was more expensive of course). Other than the table not being setup with roses, champagne and petals scattered around upon being seated, we enjoyed the food, service and time. Fresh food non stop and delish. Our waitress quickly set it up while we were seated and apologized for the error after I asked... I guess they were busy, but still...

Our 8:30 reservation was cancelled via email at 5:45 because we didn’t answer a phone call from the manager. He didn’t even leave a voicemail. That did fit us in, but it was frustrating. Our server was great, but an 18% tip was automatically charged for our table of 2 which was not cool. As always, the food and fondu experience is amazing. I just worth the rest lived up to the high cost.

This was our first time dining at the Melting Pot and we truly enjoyed ourselves! The experience was unlike anything we had ever been to. It seems like you get such small portions but we both left full.
Not something to do regularly but perfect for a date night or special occasion.

Where do I start???? My family LOVES The Melting Pot restaurant...its one of our favorite places to eat at as a family, so it was no question as to where to have my daughters 10th birthday party...It was so much fun having her little girlfriends attend, there were 26 in our party total. And the SERVICE! It was impeccable! Thank you to manager David for having our pre selected meals ready to go,to Chelsea for being simply the best server we have encountered - hands down. And the second server (Shawn, I think) was so good with the kids!! I just cant write enough. The other parents commented about bringing their family to The Melting Pot in the future. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

The overall dining and food experience was great as always. What was disappointing for us was to go out expecting a nice evening and listening to a baby crying. Everyone heard it as it was extremely loud and the parents had no clue they were disturbing others. We were in a separate area and still had trouble hearing each other. The manager did not seem interested in doing anything about it.

Such a great experience. My husband loved every bit of his birthday celebration there. He was surprised that he enjoyed it so much. He even wanted a video of himself grilling his steak, lobster, shrimp and chicken. The food was well seasoned. We chose the Cajun seasoning. The bar tender was awesome as well as our waitress.

We will certainly be back.

We had 7 in our party and had made reservations. We flew in from Tampa to meet our children and in-laws. We have been to several Melting Pots and this one was our worst experience. I had reservations at 6:30, it took 35 minutes to get a table. Our server was slow, inattentive, non-explanatory, and not friendly. She wasn’t “non-friendly” to her co-workers however because we often saw her joking and laughing with them. I ended up explaining the cooking style to our table because she went through it way to quickly and with the least amount of effort as possible. It took 4 requests and 30 minutes from the time we were finally seated for my son to get his sweet tea. After the server came to the table the 4th time , she told us his tea was on “another tray”. We had our cheese going before he got his drink. We did not receive our raw meat to cook until we had been there for over 2.5 hours. It was quite frustrating. We had to go find the manager and ask him if our server could bring our food so we could start cooking it. He was also rude and told us that’s how it works there and that the kitchen was getting it ready. My daughter asked how long it takes for the kitchen to put raw meat on a plate? Lol. He didn’t apologize for the slow service. He did not even speak to us as we walked out. He was at the front counter, talking and laughing with staff. This location had Terrible customer service on 12/7/19. We will never go back to this location. Advice to people thinking of choosing this melting pot? Don’t. *if anyone from this location would like the names of the server and manager on duty, please let me know. Customer service and efficiency need work.
