Very nice place, we had two dipping sauces, cheese and chocolate, the fun part of the night was that we got to cook our own food and it only took 2 mins, we had a variety of different meats to try, and the atmosphere was romantic but also kid friendly, the desserts were good and the staff were very friendly and helpful.

We booked a reservation for our anniversary which happens to be 2 days after valentine's day and this was our first time there. The place was SWAMPED. We waited about 10 minutes after our reservation time (which was fine with us) but you could tell other people were waiting for a while. The seating was a bit awkward in an L shaped 2 person booth. The restaurant was dimly lit which made for a romantic date. We ordered the valentine's 4-course menu. It was too much food for us and the whole experience lasted about 2 hrs. I would recommend either coming for strictly fondue or dessert. We had the white truffle cheddar fondue and the cherry chocolate for desert. The main course was "ehh" at best. I wasn't aware that we'd be cooking our main entree in the fondue pot until that course came up. Service was pretty slow and the ambiance was a bit hectic, but it's understandable given the date. The waitress was great. Aside from the 2x 4 course meals, we also ordered a flight of wine (they were pretty good) and 2 sangria cocktails (not the best). All in all, our bill came out to $170 and we left a $30 tip. The service was fine, the food was fine, but it was nothing SPECTACULAR. Does make for a good intimate date though.

Went here on a whim. Wife and I were treated to excellent service and pretty good food. We had the Steak trio with the 4 course meal. We both left very happy and will be coming back.

We’ve been here several times but not in the last few years. Our sever was great with a good sense of humor and very personable. Timing on courses was perfect and the atmosphere was good for a romantic dinner.

Expected a lot more for 190$. Service wasn’t attentive, food wasn’t that great. Really disappointed, felt like we were rushed and a burden. Didn’t give us any reason to want to go back

Did the Valentine's Day special dinner with my wife. Our waitress was wonderful she did a great job.she made sure we got our drinks and everything at a perfect timing. We got the seafood lovers it had Shrimp Tama scallops, salmon, lobster and A he tuna which I ate raw and it was delicious. It was very good all the seafood was very fresh. Had a couple beers and my wife had a couple of their Love martini which was very good. The restaurant atmosphere was quiet and romantic it was very nice. The desert like always was wonderful ,diabetic coma time . Melting pot is always a wonderful place to go for an anniversary, date or whatever. It is a little costly but it is worth every penny. Me my wife go to melting pot about 2 times a year she would eat there once a week if we could. Always remember that they take reservations cause sometimes they have a very long wait. And don't forget to tip your waitress Or weahter they do a lot of work for you to make sure your experience is a good one.. Now I'm pretty much just going to ramble on the little because I couldn't come up with the long enough review for them so one more thing I would like to add about the melting pot please shorten your written review It is a little too long to have to come up with such a long review blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah have a wonderful evening Blah blah blah blah blah blah sorry really long review they want from you blah blah blah blah blah blah I hope that you enjoyed the review that I wrote for you blah blah blah blah blah

Thought food was over priced for what it is. Could of gone and got a prime steak dinner for the same price and left more satisfied

Our kids, 7 & 9, loves this special year meal for Valentine’s Day. What we didn’t like was waiting 25 minutes after our reservation time for a table. I made our reservation early so we could get the kids home in time for bed so I didn’t appreciate having to rush a bit to make up for the extra wait time.

The main problem we had was the burner was too hot and some of our food got burned. We told our waitress about it and she turned it down twice but it was still pretty hot. She said that the burners were not working properly.

Our server was delightful and the food was delicious. The drinks took a very long time to get to the table. Since you're sharing it's a fun place for people who already know each other.

We are repeat customers. Usually a 5 star event, but our server was a dud this time. He complained about his job and was critical of restaurant.
