The Melting Pot - Midtown Atlanta Ratings and Reviews
We always love the Melting Pot and usually go once or twice a year for special occasions. The food is always good. The bacon and jalapeño cheese was great and the cookies and creme chocolate was delicious. Our server was nice as well. The only down side is the price. It is not inexpensive
Great food! I recommend the 4 course land and sea experience with the spinach and artichoke cheese fondue, California salad, land and sea entree selection and cookies-n-creme chocolate fondue. Cocktails were outstanding as well! This is my 4th time going to this location and they never disappoint.
We have been to the Melting Pot SEVERAL times over the years. This Sunday we had the worst service ever. The restaurant was not busy - as the Lion King was playing at the Fox and most patrons had left when we arrived to make the show. We had to ask for skewers for our fondue, even though we had told our server we did not have any as he was preparing it. We sat for a significant amount of time between cheese and main entree course. Cheese residue was dried/burned on pot as we just sat there watching our server serve other tables. Drinks were not refilled - reorder for sauces took a long time. Again, long wait between main entree and dessert. Had to request dinnerware, AGAIN, for the dessert course. Sat and waited for a long time for our check and then for our check to be processed. VERY disappointed - this was a birthday celebration for an international student and his first visit to the Melting Pot. Was very embarrassed at the experience after we had hyped up what an amazing restaurant and experience this would be.
Brandon was our waiter and was the star of the evening. We were pre-dining before Lion King and simply could not be late. We requested all the courses at the same time (cheese, meats, fruit, chocolate dessert) and got them in minutes. It was FUN to switch from cheese, to steak, to an apple, to a chocolate dipped banana and back and forth. In spite of the lavish ordering we did, the bill was extremely reasonable.
Brandon was funny, knowledgeable, fast, and attentive even in small details like giving our two girls an extra marshmellow....little things like that make a restaurant successful.
Our server was actually amazing. Food and drinks were as to be expected. My only complaint was the extremely rude hostess who was eating at the hostess stand when we entered. Upon finally greeting us she asked if we had a reservation to which I responded yes and gave her my last name. She then informed me that I was a no show and should have called to which I responded by attempting to show her the reservation on my phone for 10pm...it was currently only 9:45. She rolled her eyes and finally after several minutes decided to seat us. The restaurant was at less that 20% capacity at this time.
We dined at the Melting pot on New Years Day (Evening). It was dirty and the service was horrible. It was easy to get reservations through open table even at the last minute so I do not think it was busy.
When we were seated there was a table across from us stacked with dishes. There were also two large serving trays of stacked dirty dishes alongside that same table. It was disgusting. They were not removed for 45 minutes after we were seated. The floors were dirty and lots of other tables had stacked dishes. The banquet room was stacked a mile high. Really, really gross.
The service was terrible. The server's name was Megan. Extremely long wait times before she took the order and in between table visits. Delivered food without silverware. Waited some more. Never took dirty dishes or menus. Waited some more. Cheese was gross and clearly didn't know how to make it. Just really really a bad waitress.
When the main courses came she messed them up even after we repeated to her several times so that the order was clear. She also turned the oil up so high it was spattering on my 11 year-old. Another waiter heard the splattering of the oil and came rushing over to turn it down and said not to use it for 3-5 minutes (as he knew how dangerous it was). She came back after 10-15 minutes, immediately turned up the oil again (we thought she turned it down) and it started to splatter again. My son had to go to the bathroom as some hit him in the head. I had to go find her and tell her it was a problem.
We then asked the other waiter to take care of us as we felt she was a dangerous waitress in addition to how long she kept making us wait. He agreed and we also asked for the manager. The manager was good about things and understood the danger, the filth, and overall terrible experience. He comped the entire meal. We didn't really care about that but really a good manager and used good judgment. He also said he would address the waitress.
I've been to many fondue restaurants, plenty of which were Melting Pot locations. This location in particular is in my neighborhood, so I frequent it quite a bit. Never have I ever been so disappointed with a meal here as I was my past visit.
My spouse and I were walking down town and decided to drop in for a casual pot of fondue around 7pm on a Thursday night. Though the restaurant was nearly empty, the manager told us that no seats were available for at least 2 and a half hours (which would have been about 9:30pm). As we walked out, I pulled out my phone to set a reservation for 2 so that we didnt have to wait when we came back. To my surprise, I found that the earliest reservation slot was for 8:30pm, and I booked it. We returned around 8:15pm, assuming we would be seated around our 8:30 reservation time--boy, were we wrong. Though the restaurant was STILL scarcely populated and ample staff were bustling around, we were not seated until 9pm. We waited about 10 minutes for a server, and we ordered everything immediately. After about 15 minutes, our salads arrived before our drinks.
At this point, I was ready to forgive-and-forget the horrible service in the hopes that a simple pot of the Classic Alpine fondue would save the night. I dont know what we did to deserve it, but our luck was nonexistent that night. The fondue was poorly and improperly prepared. We decided to deal with the food and end with a pot of milk chocolate fondue (as I did NOT want to bother with ordering an entrée).
I reluctantly paid the $40 bill, and we left around 10pm. Needless to say, it will be a long time until I attempt dinner at this location again.
We ended up walking out. No one was at the front to greet us for at least 5 minutes. After we were seated, no one came to our table for another 5 minutes. We finally ordered drinks and I had a bad feeling so I told the waiter that I did not want my food brought out until we got our drinks, even reminded him when asked us to order. We waited 10 minutes, and he brings out the food with no drinks. We walked out. No apology from anyone, and horrible experience. For what they charge, this should never happen at an upscale place. It was a special dinner for my 11yr old son too, and he was in tears.
