Tanya's tips: cheese and chocolate are the best food offered - skip any other courses and get right to the good stuff! If they're full, consider eating at the bar. They can only offer cheese and chocolate courses, but see tip #1. Finally, the most popular items are most popular because they're delicious. Try that Alpine cheese and the original milk chocolate and peanut butter sometime.
Been coming to the Melting Pot for about 12 years for birthdays, anniversaries, and when guests are in town. Love this place!
I had the 4 course meal, but I would go again just for the cheese/chocolate fondue! One thing that disappointed - I brought my 9 month old daughter. They have high chairs available, but no changing table in the bathrooms. Maybe install one so we don't have to change our babies on the bathroom floor, or leave them in a wet/dirty diaper until we leave.
Great food and service, this is the best one we have been to. Will definitely be going back.
Alecia was excellent as our server. She was appropriately attentive, personable, informative. We have always received excellent service here and she among the best.
The food is also always great; this visit was no exception.
We will definitely be back.
The Melting Pot has always been a favorite of ours for 3 years. An experiential dining experience and fun for all. Wonderful flavors and lots of choices for many different tastes!
Our waiter made inappropriate comments to my fiance.
It has been a long time since I’ve been to a Melting Pot restaurant. I will say this one was exceptionally amazing. Not only did the hostess confirm my reservation, but the ambiance and the food choices were perfect for my first date. It was splendid and I would highly recommend giving this place a try. Plus: the dessert course was to die for; so much desserts to dip in nice warm milk chocolate.
Our server was fantastic, she made our evening even better! The food was wonderful. We are already planning our next birthday event to dine there.
The only problem I had was they didn't have a changing table in the ladies room to change my 2month old
My husband and I love this place 2nd time going and couldn't be more pleased! Always great care, great service, wonderful atmosphere, and amazing food! We will continue to come back and share with our friends!
Every time I come I bring someone that has never been. This time was the first time my server kinda ruined it for us. The person I brought for the first time will never return. I came for my 2 year anniversary and we planned to order all the extras. It’s been a while and was his first time and I told the server that. I had to ask how it was all done. We were never offered once an add on I had to ask for every add on and every add on I had to ask for twice because he never brought them. So the cheese we got the meat add on he dropped some of the meat on the table picked it up with his hands and never offered to relplace the meat that fell. When stirring the cheese he splashed it everywhere even in our wine and never offered to clean it. We ordered the add on lobster tail he forgot to bring it. Again I had to ask. The dessert again I had to ask if there was even an add on which I got and again forgot to bring it. Never once refilled our waters. I was pretty embarrassed after talking this place up so much and that was the service we got. Still tipped 40 on 165
Birthday dinner for daughter .....
I’ve been to the Melting Pot many times. The food is amazing and the service is always fantastic. I highly recommend this restaurant for any occasion.
Very disappointing. Celebrating my wife's 50th birthday with 2 of our friends. We had the moho sauce for our entree. Our friends had the oil. The waitress should have said the oil is like having a deep fryer sitting in front of you instead of saying it's "oil based". Our sauce blew directly into my wife's face the entire time. She told the waitress several times that it was uncomfortable but the waitress did nothing. My wife's eyes started burning and watering. She asked the waitress for napkins to dip in water to rub her eyes. That should have been a clue for the waitress. Eventually the oil "base" started smoking so my friends eyes were burning too. The waitress took the oil away before we were done eating. I has most if my duck and filet mignon still on my plate. For the waitress and I think manager lady to come by several times and see how bad it was and do nothing was horrible. It ruined the rest of our plans for later that evening, and ruined my wife's 50th birthday!!! To spend almost $300 with tip you would expect much better. I will be writing to the corporate office about how poorly this was handled. The waitress says the oil always causes problems so why serve it? And our table obviously had bad positioning that the air causes the smoke to blow directly into a customer's face. I eventually stood so my wife could move over. Very poorly handled by staff. She did not deserve the $45 tip she got. We paid for food we didn't get to eat. And by the time dessert came, we ate very little because we all just wanted to leave. Very upsetting that my wife's 50th birthday was ruined.
It was my daughter's birthday. She wanted to go last year but could not get in on her birthday because did not make reservations. This year I made them 2 week ahead. We had a great time. It was extra special when the manage brought champagne to the table for a toast for the birthday girl. Averi felt very special - thanks!
Brandon was great!
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.
It was amazing! Definitely going back.
Great service with a cozy environment. We really enjoyed the valentines weekend lunch option.
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.
Brian was helpful and informative on the menu. We took his suggestions and our meal was amazing!! Looking forward to going back soon.
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.
My granddaughter birthday. She wanted to go to the Melting Pot, had a great time
Waited 40 min for our cocktails. Had to go to bar to pickup ourselves. They were forgotten about. Waitress was not knowledgeable for what some of the cheeses tasted like.
We loved the personal attention. The menu with gluten free options were awesome!!
Loved the experience.
Went for my friends 20th birthday! We did cheese and chocolate because the entrees are really expensive. Everyone there was super nice, best service ever! They brought out super cute non alcoholic drinks for us. Would 100% recommend for special occasions!
The restaurant has Great staff and venue. I like the semi exclusivity of place.
Really enjoyed The Austin Melting Pot location. Had a great time even though the drive was 2 hours - it was worth it.
We've been to this location several times. We usually enjoy it a lot, but this time it seemed to cost too much for the food and the experience we received. They changed the menus from nice looking leather-bound book to a flimsy diner-style affair that really made the place seem cheap. They've raised their prices on their food, but their food hasn't changed in the 5 years we've been going. They clearly need more wait staff, since our waitress was seen all the way across the restaurant and could not really pay attention to our needs. If you've never been to this restaurant, it's worth it to go at least once for the experience. If you're a regular like us, it's no longer worth going. Maybe Austin will get other fondue restaurants.
server was Joanna & she was very helpful . great food!
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.
