Fondue
Situated in the hub of Downtown Bellevue, The Melting Pot provides a casually elegant, intimate atmosphere. The relaxing 4 course experience begins with cheese fondue prepared tableside. Fresh salad follows while your entrée pot heats up. You’ll simmer a variety of tantalizing meats, seafood, & vegetables. Each morsel is hot, fresh, & flavorful. Entrees are accompanied by an array of dipping sauces to add to the fun. Your choice of chocolate fondue is the grand finale, served with a variety of delicious dippers. Many have stopped by to satisfy that fondue craving after a movie at Lincoln Center, a day of shopping at Bellevue Square or The Bravern, or a family outing at the park.

We feature an extensive wine list, fresh trendy cocktails, & specialty martinis.

It’s the perfect place to celebrate a birthday, anniversary, overdue date night, family night, or a group gathering!

The Melting Pot in Bellevue is exceptional! I enjoy going special events there, especially. Service is always great and the managers always come out and inquire about both service and food.

Took my sister and the rest of her bridal party out for dinner, the wait staff was amazing! I wish I could remember the gentleman’s name who was helping us, because he truly made the experience one of a kind! My sister had an amazing time and felt like she was the only one that mattered that day... as any bride should! ❤️

I would not go to the melting pot in Bellevue again. The first time I went it was eh the second time was worst then the first! It wasn’t the servers fault he did his best to make light of the mood. So we got there @ 6:20 and got seated right away in a corner not and but it’s whatever. A few times busboys or hostess would peek at us but nothing ever came of it. Around 7 we FINALLY got our water. The server apologized by saying “I’m so sorry NO ONE TOLD ME I HAD A TABLE” I was in shock like wow really? The food was good as usual. I had to ask multiple times if I could get a water refill. I ordered 3 drinks between my girlfriend and I. The server said they took 2 of our drinks off our tab and i was still charged for 2. Again this isn’t the servers fault to a point he did he absolute best to try to make light of a situation that was already dead. I will be waiting for the Lynnwood spot to open up. After Saturday I will no longer be going to the melting pot in Bellevue!

I much prefer the Seattle location over the Bellevue site. I’ve been to Bellevue before for dinner with girlfriends and the setting was ok. But I recently went for my anniversary and wanted a quiet, intimate dinner with husband. The Bellevue location is bright with booths meant for two people to sit across from each other. I sank down into the booth and it wasn’t comfortable to reach the pot or anything on his side of the table. I felt like I needed a booster seat or the seat needed some plywood under it. It is reminiscent of an older restaurant space that was renovated for the melting pot, like an Applebee’s with hot plates cut into the table. Our waitress did the best she could while serving our table as well as an entire other section. I made a reservation for 615 and had gotten their early with the intention of having a drink on the bar beforehand, an anniversary thing . We were shown to our table 15 minutes early and brought our drinks. I made a reservation for a specific time for a reason. I expected more from the Bellevue Melting Pot. I may go back with girlfriends but never again for an intimate night out.

The service was on the slow side. For the price you pay I expect good service. I have had very good service before. When we asked for anything extra it took our server a very long time.

Overrated. I get better service at a McDonalds. The disappointment started with the usher, who barely had a smile on her face. Among other things, she asked if we are celebrating something and we said yes, our wedding anniversary. We thought maybe someone will come to our table and wish us or something.. Nothing. The only thing premium about this place was the price, nothing else.

Food was amazing as always! Service was a tad slow, but our server was very busy. He was polite, but not very knowledgeable or willing to find out more information about the sodium content.

Very expensive and the service was very slow despite the restaurant being completely empty. The waitress kept forgetting things she said she would bring. The place is kind of dingy and outdated and for the price and quality of food I would much rather go to an upscale restaurant with exceptional service and more exciting and fresh chef creations. Was about $100 a person with food, drink, and tip and we had to cook it ourself and it wasn’t even that great of quality of food. Overall not the best dining experience but I left feeling very full and content. Definitely a yummy, fun, and filling meal, just not worth the value.

Don't know if it was an 'off' night, but the place was excessively warm with complaints from multiple parties. For how expensive it was, the experience was underwhelming.

It is a fun experience but the service was very slow to the point that we had two items that were significantly late...so much so we just canceled it and got the check.

A family of four costs $220. For this price I would expect a very high level of service which we did not receive. The cheese fondue is the best of all the options available. Cooking in broth was entertaining for my 15 year old son but doesn't do much for the taste of the food.

We decided not to do the 4-course menu and just ordered cheese fondue, salads, and chocolate fondue with our kids. Both fondue courses were great and fun for everyone! Sadly, all 3 salads were tiny and shockingly overpriced when ordered separately.

Going once or twice is enough. Once the novelty wears off it is just pricey.

Food was really good. Service was excellent! But the price was really steep for what you get — even including all the great things about this restaurant. This is a once-every-few-years kind of place, but definitely something to experience.

One word...underwhelming. Service was slow...the Cheese Fondue was good but the rest of the process was not that great. Since you are cooking everything yourself, you have lots of time to converse and enjoy each other’s company but that lead to over cooked food. And when you get to the bottom line of it all you are cooking filet and Ahi Tuna in flavored boiling water...I could think of several better ways to do it.

Pricey too...if it wasn’t for the Groupon we were on we would have payed over $300 bucks for what amounted to 12 bites of food (and a salad and Cheese fondue app).

Thanks but we won’t be return

Tried the “Ladies Day” or “Girlfriends “ deal and it was great! Cheese fondue, salad, a cocktail and chocolate fondue for only $25. We had a blast- the service was great and the food so much fun.
