Everything was great! Had a problem with the cold water lobsters tails. We ordered two and they were EXTREMELY SALTY. So I would stay away from the lobster. Everything else was perfect. I Love this place and go a lot on date night and will continue to go but avoiding lobster.

Thanks so much for the comments! If you remember your server's name, I'd love to know so I can pass the compliment on to them.

We have been to Melting Pot many many times and had a fantastic experience. This time, unfortunately, was not.

I ordered the four course and my husband did not because we ways just split the cheese and chocolate course for 1 between the two of us.

The problems started with the cheese course. She put too much liquid in the fondue so it was slimy and wouldn't stay on the bread or vegetables.

The main course was fine.

Between the main course and dessert, they usually clean off the table. She didn't so there was cheese that she'd spilled from the first course still on the table.

Dessert time came and she asked "Do you need a dessert menu?" and then rolled her eyes when I said yes. I ordered the Flaming Turtle and she put the stuff down on the table, lit the chocolate on fire, and walked away. She didn't dump the nuts on it or stir it till the flame extinguished.

This place can be amazing, but so much depends on your server. Were this our first time here, it would absolutely be our last.

Arrived 10 minutes early and sat at bar while waiting to be called. Bartender acknowledged us after 10 minutes. Drinks were good. Sat us 15 minutes after our reservation. Server was great. Food was not worthy the money paid.

Excellent presentation by our server, portions were decent and quality of food was good, disappointed that we were only able to do one part at a time, would have enjoyed the experience of trying multiple broths

My husband and I had been a few times, but this was the first time for our boys (ages 14 and 11). They LOVED it and are trying to convince us to go more often. It's nice that they are old enough to know "fancy restaurant" etiquette. We will be back!

Me and have been coming to this establishment since 2011; we are no strangers to the melting pot, we come here at least 3 times a year. That’s how much we love it; this time we both say was our worse service. Was the waitress bad no was the waitress good no. The vibe was the same as it was when we dined on the 19th of October. Of course a different server, everyone has their own style. The problem comes here every time until this time my profile has been read, so it known that we are regulars, the hostess whom we seem several times knew us by name and was welcoming as always. (Meaning it’s wasn’t phony). See the difference between this waitress and the others in the past they were all authentic. Relaxed, actually checked on us more often, yes they focused on their big groups but they knew to check on us just as often. Every table I heard do you want extra dippers for ever course they was given “not ours” the convos were short when checking on us, not at the other tables. It was like we were being timed each course bam bam, any special things as far as us celebrating our 10 year, the manager brought us complementary wines..all a treat of course. She isn’t suppose to cater or serve just observe. We didn’t expect that from her but she is always polite and courteous (authentic) as you see I use that word a lot. The waitress promise a little something special for our 10 year celebration nothing. Less than 2 months ago we were brought things and treated the best I have or my wife has been at any finer establishment. The point of this is professional rant is this, take the time to look over and see whom you are service or ask questions before assuming....remember the first sentence i typed well we were treated as if this was our first time.. I felt more as if I scrapped up some dollars to take my wife on a dinner for our 10 year; that’s a sad thought but believe it all not the vibe said it all. Will be back though..we’ll be just making a special request that’s all.

My husband and I love to go to the Melting Pot. We normally go there for date night, but this time we went for brunch. We had the cheese and a charcuterie board. We felt that the charcuterie board was a little small for the price, but it was still delicious. Always a great place to go for any occasion and would always recommend.

This was the second time we’ve had Joanna as our server and she is amazing! Quick to refill drinks, friendly and knowledgeable about the menu and the entire melting pot process.
This is our go-to date night spot, made even better by her wonderful service!

Awesome experience, the food was delicious as always, the waiter was awesome. Very humorous, respectful and professional. Ryan was his name, and to be comfortable to even tell us his nickname, states we made him at ease as well. Individual contributors like himself is why we continue to come this fine establishment and why we have since 2011. Kudos Ziggy and thank you once again for the relaxing but awesome experience!

Our waiter was fantastic, he had great recommendations and took great care of us. My husband and I had the 3 course meal- cheese/veggie tray, meats, and dessert. For the ant of food I think it was rather high so we decided next time to stick with the cheese & dessert combo. We had a nice quiet corner as our son is autistic and noises bother him but it worked out great.

Our waiter was new...like literally on his second day and he was amazing. I’ve been to the melting pot in different cities totaling at least 15 visits, and this experience was by far one of the best. Everyone was exceptionally polite and the food was delicious! This is a great spot for a girls outing or romantic experience with your significant other. I highly recommend it!

The Melting Pot is a favorite of ours for special occasions, so we decided to go for our 5 year wedding anniversary. Given that we were celebrating such a momentous occasion, I was disappointed that the waitstaff didn't bring us some champagne or a complimentary dessert or something- In the past, we came here when I was promoted at work, and the waitress surprised us by bringing each of us a glass of champagne to celebrate! That was much appreciated at the time. I guess I was expecting something like that for a big anniversary.
