Very overpriced and underwhelmed. 2 ppl split a meal $100 and 3rd person got seperate items..yet put into 1 pot snd food no more than 2 ppl would get.
It was a very familiar dessert tray as its been exact same for years hone to this place. The pots were luke warm and chocolate was not enjoyed.
Paying over $100 my portion of split meal with 3 drinks n tip..will not happen again. I wasted my hard earned $$$

It was my boyfriends first time. He loved everything about it. We had the best booth in the restaurant. And the add ons must be new but the touch of romance was perfect! We truly enjoyed ourselves and can’t wait to come back.

The Melting Pot is our special occasion go-to. This review is strictly for the Arrowhead location and this one-time meal. We had the worst seat in the restaurant, in the bar in the path of every server in and out of the kitchen. We actually started to giggle because every time someone went by they announced “corner!” We were obviously an outlier table for our server because he never came by. We got the “all you can eat”, my boys can eat, and the manager came and took our pot before we were done, didn’t even ask. We ordered the crime brûlée for dessert and it was truly a bowl of warm sugar. It was just disappointing and not the experience we expect when we make reservations at The Melting Pot.

It was our first time there and we had a terrific night celebrating my birthday! Kudos to our awesome waiter Stuart! He’s so thorough with the menu, giving recommendations, and cracking jokes to make our experience even better! We had the Bigger Night combo for two w/ the lobster tail - The food were super - totally worth the money. Strongly recommend this restaurant!

First, I understand that restaurants are still rebounding from COVID. However, our experience was below expectations unfortunately. The restaurant was at leas than half capacity, but the service was incredibly slow. Everything we ordered took a considerable amount of time. Drinks were in credibly slow, we had do ask every time for more water, and once the food was delivered the sever didn’t come back for at least 20 minutes. The food was decent, but it was frustrating running out of water, sauces, or needing something and not having anyone to ask.

They also called ahead and asked if it was for a special occasion, which it was, a birthday. But they didn’t even do anything for the birthday nor did they even acknowledge that we were there for that reason. Just really fell below the mark of basic expectations for even a chain restaurant.

We usually have great service, but last night was horrible. Our server rarely came to our table. I had to track down someone for water refills. I’m not sure what was going on. They open at 4:00, our reservation was at 4:15, so it wasn’t busy. Very disappointment for the amount of money spent for such crappy service.

My wife and I used to go to melting pot often and for years it was amazing 5 stars all the time but unfortunately the service, the food, and ambiance has went down. Just standards overall have went down. When you order fillet mignon you would expect beautiful tender meat (especially when you are spending over $200 for two people) but what we got was far from, very low grade meat tough and still had silver skin. The utensils (the little fondue forks) were disgustingly dirty ! And the booth including the little light above the food hasn't been wiped down in a long while. Service was decent but she would toss stuff in without asking us first like cilantro in our hot broth which my wife is allergic so had to send it back. Honestly I can go on but needless to say it will be a while before we would ever consider going back.

I took my mother here for her birthday. We had a wonderful dinner and our waiter was amazing! They were very patient with us while we finished one course and were ready to move on to the next one. We did not expect the meats to be raw which was funny to us that we had to cook it ourselves in the fondue pot, it was a very pleasantly different experience. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for something out of the ordinary.

My mom and I got the restaurant week promotion and it was delicious - both the spinach artichoke fondue and the mojo cooking broth had excellent flavor. There was also a wide variety of dippers, and it was fun to use the skewers in sauces. I also got the wine flight, which I highly recommend. Our server Maddy was excellent - very attentive and fun to chat with. It was a fantastic experience!

Walking into the restaurant, the lights are dim, it is an intimate looking type of place. The food was delicious, the place was fun. Only thing I would have liked is if my server would have explained how everything works there as far as the courses go. I walked in not knowing anything about the place, and didn't get much answers. I figured stuff out as I went. The food was pricey, and portions were small. You're pretty much paying for the experience. Overall, the cocktails were delicious and the food was great. I definitely recommend going there. It's fun for kids, but would be great for an intimate date night.
