Everything was just great. My only complaint is that they forgot to give us our chocolate covered strawberries.

We planned on a special evening to celebrate Valentine’s Day and got three phone calls confirming our reservation. Never during the three confirmations did they ever tell us or remind us it was a pre-fixed meal, double what we usually pay and with significantly less options. Specifically, for people with dietary restrictions, it would have been nice to be notified. When we got there, we immediately realized it was a prefixed meal, we asked the server if there were vegetarian/pescatarian options available for my girlfriend since she keeps Kosher and does not eat meat or shellfish. Our waitress made it clear that she could not offer us a simple substitution and give her a plate of salmon, so at that point, we considered leaving since she could not eat anything there. It was only after we spoke with a manager that they said we could have salmon, but could not have anything else from the regular menu offerings. Additionally, the prefixed menu was significantly more expensive than the regularly priced menu items and even with a simple plate of salmon, we were still charged the much higher price. This whole process took so long that we had to rush through our entire meal and were unable to enjoy our chocolate dessert for our romantic dinner because we had to get to our show, even though we had planned for a long meal regardless. We have loved coming to the melting pot in the past, but this will make us rethink celebrating any special occasions at the restaurant.

Took my girlfriend here for Valentine's. We had a 430p reservation. The valet was on point and cost $5 + gratuity. We were greeted by the host and seated almost immediately in a comfortable booth. Brandon, our waiter, was very knowledgeable about the menu, which consisted of 5 courses. The food was delicious and the plate presentation was wonderful. We spent about 2 hours enjoying our meal and never felt rushed. Thank you Brandon for an awesome dining experience!

Had dinner here (6pm reservation) prior to show at Fox. Seated promptly. Let our server know that we had 7:30 tickets. She facilitated the meal so that we (barely) made it. Food was delicious and we enjoy the fondue experience. We were a bit rushed but will allow longer for meal next time. Overall a really fun meal experience.

Our table was right by a corner where everyone said "corner" as they approached the corner. While I understand the need for safety, it didn't do much for our enjoyment of our meal. Perhaps a mirror would eliminate the need?

Considering the fact that they are using standard (not special) cheese, prices are a bit high! There was nothing special about their cheese fondue. Only chocolate fondue satisfied us in our meal.

The Melting Pot offers a unique dining experience. With the ability to sample small preparations that you cook at your table. Our server Chris was outstanding in offering insights to help us with our selections of cheese, entree, cooking style, and dessert. He was exceptionally attentive but never felt overbearing. All things considered it was a wonderful evening.

I was a little disappointed in the experience. I have fond memories of going to the Melting Pot for special occasions and this just didn’t live up to my expectations. To start, our table was sticky when we sat down. We chose the build-your-own 4 course. We started with the alpine cheese. I was extremely disappointed to watch our waitress squeeze a lemon into our cheese and let all of the lemon seeds into the pot. I didn’t say anything because I figured she would fish them out.. however she didn’t and we found 3 lemon seeds while eating the first course. The salad and entree were fine, we were able to get refills of sauces etc. Our table was a bit of a mess after the entree but it wasn’t cleaned off for us before the chocolate course came out. Also, even though we chose the 4 course experience, we were still charged an extra $20 for the chocolate? That was a little confusing because I thought the 4 courses were the cheese, salad, entree, and chocolate.. I will say they gave us a plate with a few chocolate covered strawberry halves and a small pound cake with a candle which was very nice. Overall, I don’t think we’ll be back, this experience just isn’t worth the price.

The food itself is not exciting but it is an entertaining meal experience. We went before attending the Fox Theater and it is very conveniently located for this. I would warn that you need at least two hours for the meal due to the length of time it takes to cook the individual items in the fondue pot. The meal consisted of three parts. For the first part or appetizer we chose the Alpine (I believe it was a Gruyere cheese) into which you dip assorted breads and vegetables. The second part was the main course and we selected the meat assortment that included salmon, teriyaki steak, shrimp, chicken and filet to cook on the hot oil fondue. The course came with a garnish of several sauces and tempura batter as well as vegetables. For the final course we chose the dark chocolate with Chambord which came with an assortment of cakes and fruits to dip in the chocolate. Unfortunately, we had to run out on this course because we were running late for the theater, but we did sample this part of the fondue as we ran out of the restaurant.

Our recent visit to the Melting Pot was amazing! We went prior to a show we were going to at the Fox Theater. Unfortunately we were unable to finish our meal and our server very graciously allowed us to come back to complete our last course--dessert! He even remembered that is was a birthday celebration for my husband! Thank you Brandon for making our evening! :)

Had the best experience here for our daughter's 14th birthday. We have eaten at this location before and wasn't crazy about the atmosphere. However, we had an amazing waitress that stayed on top of all our needs. It wasn't too loud so we could enjoy conversations at the table!

We have been to this Melting Pot many times. The service, food, and experience are always great. There’s just something about sitting at a table in the side hallway that keeps me from giving 5 stars all the way across, the ambiance just isn’t there. Overall, it’s a great place and we’ll be back.

We were there well over 3 hours. Have been several times, but this was by far the longest experience. I think it was mostly our server. We had reservations, so there was no wait to be seated.

We love coming here, and this is my favorite location. Our server was really delightful, and we had a great time. The issues we had should not reflect on the server I don't think. The burner at our table apparently has some issues and is getting repaired soon, but it cooked everything way too fast, splattered oil everywhere, and was impossible to really time or control. The server tried hard though. We also think maybe our table was far from where the rest of her tables were, as it took a while for her to get back to us a few times. Our four course dinner took 3.5 hours - far longer than usual, and about 1.5 hours longer than the table next to us, but we could hear them and they were clearly not having the wonderful time we were. Our server was truly a pleasure despite the burner and the duration, and so was the bartender. The person who sat us seemed really unhappy, but maybe she was just having a bad night? I don't believe the issues we had were typical at all, and we will absolutely be back.

Many issues but the biggest - Seated 30 minutes after our reservation. One of the burners was broken and made cooking the meat impossible. Worst experience I have ever had here to the point this loyal customer might not be back.

I made these reservations for my birthday and for my mom as she flew in to ATL that day and I hadn’t seen her in 1 yr. The restaurant knew this, my husband even got up multiple times from our table to ask about the bday balloon package that they offered and I never received. Dishes were rarely bused off table between courses and waiter was hard to find. I was embarrassed by the service that I got up myself to find the manager. Instead hostess told the assistant manager, told her the problem, she said she was aware of some issues because earlier she had spoke to my husband. Assistant manager Never came to our table, as we were leaving I asked for the assistant manager but she had already gone home for the night. I never got my birthday balloons, my guests were irritated, I was sad and embarrassed..honestly I wish I had never decided to dine here.

The waiter was extremely helpful with answering our questions since it was our first time here and making recommendations that suited us.
