About The Melting Pot - Bellevue
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 - Bellevue Ratings and Reviews
great meal and service. the little kid jumping around at the table next to us was rather annoying especially after she put her hand on the hot cook top and burned her hand. parents were oblivious to their children's behavior or the looks from surrounding tables (until she started screaming, then they paid attention)
was there for valentines day. food was good - it's the same melting pot menu. i can't complain. but service was so slow. 30 min delay on reservation. to sum it up it was terribly slow service, understaffed, and outdated interior. not the typical melting pot experience we were expecting. very disappointing.
Pretty good experience, but the food delivery felt rushed. We got each course before the last was finished, and then when the food was dropped off the waiter was nowhere to be found. Also, the dessert was disappointing. We’ve been to the melting pot 10+ times (it’s our favorite) and it seems like they decided to skimp on the dessert dippers. I missed my favorite marshmallows, and instead got pretzels.
I always enjoy going to The Melting Pot. It’s a great place to have a date night or to catch up with friends. If you do all 4-courses, be prepared to be there for 2-3 hours. It’s a very long and time consuming process, but very fun! I went with my friend who is on a gluten free diet and she was able to eat everything! They had gluten free bread for the cheese fondue, and just substituted out specific meats and desserts for the other courses that weren’t gluten free. It was awesome for her to be able to enjoy the entire meal without any complications. I was very impressed. :)
We were well taken care of at this visit for my daughter's 11th birthday. There's a lot more interaction at dinner at this restaurant since we work together to time our food cooking and share the food with each other. We enjoyed the cheese fondue, loved the Big Eats and the milk chocolate fondue for dessert. The Green Goddess dip is our favorite with veggies as well as many of the meats. Our waitress brought us refills. This is a favorite special occasion restaurant for my family.
The quality of the food is def below par. The bread brought out was the day old version of bread. The veggies look like they have been sitting on a counter for a week. The steak meal brings 3 types of below grade beef that all taste the same. My daughter loves
To go every year on her birthday which is why we came back after last years terrible overpriced dinner. I do not recommend this place to anyone , esp for the price!
We had a 7:30 PM reservation but arrived early; we had to wait until exactly 7:30 because there had been "a lot of walk-ins" and they were short-staffed on a weekday. We were asked about our drink choices right away and they arrived promptly, but after the pot was put down for the first course (cheese fondue) we waited...and waited...for the server to arrive with the cheese and the foods for dipping. (The wait was so long that all the water in the lower section of the pot had evaporated while we were still eating that course, and the fondue burned a little.) The entree course arrived promptly after we had finished the first course, and the dessert course (chocolate fondue) arrived promptly after that. Overall a pretty good service experience. The selection of entree items was excellent (we had the "Big Night Out"), and of course since we cooked it ourselves at the table it was done just the way we like. I have been to the Bellevue Melting Pot twice now, and the Tampa, Florida, location once, and I would recommend this to friends and family when a fun time and a change of pace are needed...as long as one has the funds. (With drinks, extra dessert, tip, etc. the bill for two of us was over $150.)
Unless this restaurant removes auto gratuity I would not recommend! Absolutely the worst service I have ever received. We celebrated New Years Eve with a five course meal without even being offered a drink. Our server was annoyed we had never been to the establishment and had to explain the dining process! Food was exceptional and support staff were appropriate. I would like to take this opportunity to wish our server a Happy New since she didn’t seize the opportunity to wish us one! Better luck next year!
Even though it was only 4 pm, and not many others in the restaurant, it seemed a long time before we received water and attention from our waitress to order drinks. AND - drinks did not arrive until AFTER the first course was served. The food was delivered, but missed part of the order - which was brought later - after we ate all the cheese fondue. [The waitress was kind enough to offer to remove one of the meat platters from our bill to make up for this oversight.] Overall, we made the best of it and had fun, but the service could have been better, and they really need to resolve the bar and kitchen back-up, if that is what caused delays. ALSO - the bread served for the gluten free option was HORRID. For the price, and with so many good gluten free bakeries in the area, they really should obtain GF bread from a better source.
A wonderful experience and amazing customer service !!
The food is always outstanding and well worth the price. It’s an event as much as a meal and we so enjoy it. We don’t come often, as it is expensive, we save it for special occasions. But this place makes those special occasions super special. THANK YOU!!
A lovely evening out. The food is great and the drinks are hand crafted and really good! My only minor issues are that it is a little too dark in there to read the many things on the menu and the add on to the bill for the increased Seattle wages. I don't like surprises on my bill. Other than that, a lovely evening out.
I had booked the reservation for 3. When someone called me to up sale the strawberries, I change the reservation to 5 . When we showed up they had the reservation still for 3. So we had to wait while they fixed a stove for us at a table. When we got there the strawberries were already there where they sat for the whole dinner. I felt they should have been brought out to him as a special thing for his birthday after dinner. We had to keep telling our son that he could not have them until after dinner. Then the other burner went out and we had to change tables. Then the waiter accidentally knocked over a wine bottle and broke one of the wine glasses that my husband had all over his hand with red wine and broken glass. He was fine and went to the bathroom to clean up. They cleaned it all up. But we had to ask about 10mins later if they would kindly bring us a replacement glass of wine. The food was great and we had a great time, but for a $400+ dinner just maybe expected a little better service.
The entire experience was amazing! I must comment on our wonderful service including the bar tender. We arrived early and had to wait roughly 5 minutes at the bar. The bar tender had just enough time to make us a drink. I had the lemonade berry mojito. It was AMAZING! I strongly recommend it. He adds sprite to make it sweet and the muddled berries make it amazing.
