The food was extremely bland. Our server was nice, but even the chocolate that was supposed to be the best part, tasted off. We would not go here again.

Food was good, but seems overpriced for the amount you get. $25 for meat that you cook yourself, after all. Service was slow between courses, and server did not check back with us very often, even though restaurant wasn't very busy.

This was a great experience. Anthony was a great server and even for our anniversary, brought out a special treat for us. We definitely will come back to this Melting Pot in particular again! The only bad thing that it was really cold in there, but that could have been because we were kind of the first people there.

The server was very hospitable! He was knowledgeable about the food and what went with what. He was very funny so it matched perfect with my boyfriend’s personality so it made the experience that much better. The food was delicious and no critique there. It was my boyfriends first time there and he says it’s a place we have to go back to!

This restaurant is on the pricier side, but always worth it. it is an experience of something different. We put together our own a la cart four-course meal, plus one drink each totalling 132 plus tip. Wait staff was experienced and even suggested some sauce flavor combinations we've never tried before. Everyone was wearing masks and socially distancing appropriately. Parking was a bit of a challenge that we figured it out eventually. You have to park in a parking garage to the rear of the building. Our ticket it was validated, but we still ended up paying $2 - would like to see the full parking cost covered in future, given the $$$$ of the meal.

The idea and concept are nice and fun, but the food is very bad. The cheese fondue was below average, the bread served with it was old, and then the meats of the entrees were not tasty at all.
Overall the food is below average.

The Melting Pot is a really fun experience. It is the perfect dinner spot for a nice date or to celebrate a special occasion like a birthday, anniversary, etc. The food is delicious but definitely on the more expensive end.

Always an enjoyable experience at Melting Pot. Thankfully the concept seems to work pretty well with Covid since it's mostly isolated and DIY anyway. Server and the rest of the stuff was very friendly.
