I love this place! We eat here often either before or after going to a show at the Fox Theatre. The 4 course fondu meal is divine, and very filling. The entire evening takes about 2 hours. Lots of fun and relaxing. I believe it's a good value.

This was my first time (as well as my boyfriend) as a guest in your restaurant and we enjoyed every second! Our waiter was very knowledgeable and took the time to explain how everything worked. The courses were perfectly timed and our waiter checked in at the perfect times as well. Not too frequently and we weren’t sitting wondering where he had run off to. As a fellow foodie and sauté at Kyma, I just want to say thank you for a great evening!

This restaurant did NOT meet our expectations. The server was not friendly and did not provide the kind of service you would expect at this type of restaurant. The food was good but not for the price. Expect to be there awhile, it’s a lengthy dining experience.

We are regulars at the Melting Pot - we buy annual gift cards with "quarterly bonus coupons" that almost ensure that we'll be back every 90 days or so.

As always, the food was terrific. Tasty, fun and plentiful, the meal was outstanding.

The only notable difference on this trip seemed to be with the server, who appeared to be somewhat "new" and possibly inexperienced. When he asked (much appreciated) if we wanted more dippers, and we said yes, he failed to bring them. It was also my birthday, so I brought the birthday coupon sent in an email offering a box of 6 chocolate covered strawberries if I included notification in my reservation. (I did). Instead, we got 3 HALVES of strawberries on a plate with a poundcake dipper cube and a candle (cute, but not what the offer stated). Also, the desert/chocolate course seemed to be pretty "skimpy" for the 3 of us at the table, but maybe we just misjudged/misremembered the typical amount from previous visits.

Lastly, for some reason, using the coupons and gift cards, in conjunction with my credit card seemed to throw our server, so the manager came out to help us "settle up".

NONE of this would preclude us from coming again. It was still a nice night and good food. I would still recommend Melting Pot to all my friends. It's worth remembering, however, that anyone can have an "off night".

Our waitress was horrible. It took 30 min to get a drink. Then, we had to ask another waitress to actually order our food. She was unfriendly and seemed annoyed. At this restaurant the waitresses have to prepare the fondu in front of you, so you are with them more. As she started making our food, she starts explaining it wrong saying there are anchovies in our cheese dip as she is pouring in spinach. I told her no it’s spinach and she said oh ok. The food was good but for the price and service - not worth it.

We had terrible service on Christmas Eve. The server got every single course wrong and didn’t greet our table for 25 minutes after sitting down. It was a disappointing experience especially since I’ve had good experiences there preciously.

Our server was fantastic and the staff will ensure you are happy multiple times. The service here is impeccable. Our server provided us, first time diners, with his suggestions which we did think sounded great so we went with them. However, unfortunately the first course cheese was too strong for my fiancee to enjoy and teetering on too strong for my taste. Then the second course was the cooking method with wine and mushrooms. While this sounded good it didn't fit our taste. So I must say while my first experience certainly wasn't the best food choices I look forward to coming back to try a different cheese and cooking method. The night was still great as we were only a block or two from the fox where we spent the rest of our anniversary night.

The overall rating would have been outstanding if I didn't have to ask the host/manager for the Special Occasion flowers and balloons after my meal. I selected this option when I made my online reservation and never received them until I asked about it right before we left. The server was great, and I know this wasn’t her fault. It was just a let down that the flowers and balloons weren’t on the table when we arrived and no one caught it until I brought it up once we were finished dining.

I've been to the restaurant a few times in the past and always enjoyed it. However, this time was very disappointing. It took 15 minutes before anyone came to our table for the first time. The waitress was trying but clearly was overwhelmed due to understaffing. We had to dramatically reduce our original order because everything was taking so long. After an hour and a half, we got a salad and cheese fondue. And barely had time to devour that before we had to leave. Very disappointing based on past experiences.

We made a reservation for 10:45 and arrived around 10:30! We were greeted by a friendly lady and she thanked us for coming early. After being sat down at our table for about 20min there was a mixup about who was supposed to be serving Us because I’m guessing Everyone wanted to get off at 11pm so know wanted to take Our table,we had about 4 different people coming over to greet us and say have your server been over yet? Finally one of the waiters felt sorry and decided to take Us! I was very disappointed with the service expecting since this was my friends first time here so they didn’t get the full service treatment,Like I’ve had in the pass.. how ever the night ended fine overall the food was good! Just made Be No more late dining plans at this location!

Very disappointed in the portion sizes and the fact that there were 3 couples but we were only given 2 choices for each fondue, even though we paid the same price as a single couple would have. At the very lease, we should have been given 3 choices (one for each couple) of each fondue that was served.

I visited The Melting Pot for the first time a week ago for a late birthday dinner. It was an amazing experience! I chose the 4 course meal option with the seafood entrée. Everything was absolutely nice! From the cheese and salad to the chocolate fondue for dessert. The drinks were great and the service was on point. I will definitely visit again!
