The Melting Pot - Austin - Northwest Ratings and Reviews
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
Food was good as usual but took way too long. Took a bit more than 2 hours which was way too long given the unnecessary amount of time we waited between courses. Last but not least I had notes it was a birthday but was not offered the traditional champagne toast that we’ve gotten all the other times while there celebrating.
While Melting Pot was not the most outstanding food I've ever had, considering I boiled it in a pot of broth, it was surprisingly tasty. The cheese and chocolate, however, were outstanding. The pork was my personal favorite, and my fiancee agrees. Melting Pot is certainly not cheap, not for everyday outings, but for an occasional date night, it was a whole lot of fun.
We usually love the Melting Pot so we go there for special occasions each year. However, this visit was perhaps the worst we have ever had there. Our server was HORRIBLE! He set the cooktops at too high of a temperature, smoking out the entire part of the restaurant where we were sitting. The temperature of the oil either burnt the breading of our food or left our meat undercooked. He also mischarged us, and if my husband hadn't been paying attention, would have charged us $50 too much.
I would recommend the Melting Pot; but hopefully they bring in better servers.
We were seated 30 minutes after our reservation at a table w/ one burner when we asked for two. We brought this to their attention and he said it would be another "small" wait which we decline. The waitress apologized multiple time which we were fine with but it wasn't her fault the hostess overbooked. You could tell our waitress was a bit rushed during the night which made of feel like a burden. The manager did come over and apologize comping $10 worth of drinks which was nice but the meal was still over $90 for salad, cheese and chocalate. We usually love the melting pot but that was definitely our last time. It was horridious.
Thanks to open table I was able to reserve online day of at 7. My fiance and I walked in at 6:55 and were seated by 7. We both got The Austin's big night out, which is a four course meal for 2 for about $100. The experience is amazing, over the course of 2 hours we drank a bottle of wine and had just a really great experience. The waitress was perfect at explaining and then leaving us alone to experiment with the food and taking and goofing off.
The food was fantastic, the service was amazing, and overall the experience was great. I went for my anniversary during brunch so it would be more intimate and enjoyed the experience of cooking my own food. What I didn't enjoy was the large table next to us where the individuals were loud, listening to music on their phone and singing loudly to explicit lyrics, and were cursing and saying inappropriate things. All of this on top of the fact that there was already music playing and others talking made the first half of the 3 hour experience miserable. I feel they only got away with this because they knew several staff members. I asked the staff once to have them turn there music off and again to stop saying innapropriate things in a restaurant where children were also present. After they left the experience was enjoyable but it was a rough start and almost had me leave.
There was only one bartender working. We were seated at 7:00 and my glass of wine did not arrive until 8:00. They need an updated dining room. Our booth had cracks in the vinyl upholstery. The table seemed too crowded for all the supplies needed to cook our food. For the price paid for all the food and drinks with sub par service, I doubt we ever go back.
My family and have been going here for special occasions for years. My now 11 and 16 year old love the fondue concept, and dinner takes about 2 to 2-1/2 hours, so the conversation is always good and we always have a fun time! It is expensive, but not when you take into consideration the quality time you spend with your family!
I really wanted to give my review, and saw this email for review request and really felt like giving my honest review! The server was the best. We remembered his great service from the past. This server gave us a great service on 01/05. Melting Pot is our favorite restaurant for family dinner, and this location has been our favorite. But, when we came came in on 01/05 we were very hurt by the welcome we received at the reception. We had booked for
8:15 pm, and we arrived at 8:07. To our surprise, the person at the reception told us that they were running a few mins behind schedule, so it will be a little after 8:15. They were just waiting for people to finish and leave. So we waited. I saw people coming in after us and were being seated in 5 mins. After 30 mins of wait, I stood up and asked how long do I still need to wait. She said few more mins. I was very upset and said that it’s been a long wait. I saw several people who came after us and they got seated quickly. She said, they had booked before you. Didn’t make any sense why would someone who booked before me come so late and be seated right away, and I, who came 7 mins before my time have to wait for 30 mins. I told her that I was upset because of this and she quickly got me seated. Just felt very hurt of how we were treated/discriminated. Very unprofessional people at reception. They should be more professional. Only giving my honest opinion.
