The Melting Pot truly makes it a unique and interactive experience that your guests, colleagues or employees won’t forget.
Was in there Saturday night, 8/25 the manager actually, literally no exaggeration, jumped on our waiter in front of everyone. The worst part, he was giving an explanation of the menu to 3 tables, including ours. Ridiculous. we never got anything except the water they bring out to everyone and we had been there nearly 30 minutes at this point. Nothing else. Worst experience ever. After the menu presentation, the manager continued at the waiter so they walked off. We sat there waiting for about 5 minutes and finally walked out. I stopped by the host to tell him the fondue pot was still on, nothing in it but still; and the manager was there and I said "the fondue pot is still on, managers are arguing with waiters and we still haven't been served we are leaving." The manager just turned his head. I wish this story was made up, but sadly, it is all true. There is a lot more I could say but I think this is enough. I will be contacting someone higher up over this. Worst dining experience ever and didn't even get a chance to dine.
We were absolutely devastated to learn that as of midnight on August 26, 2018, this Melting Pot will be permanently closed. We have had so many great family dinners here. It will be missed!
Everything was great our waiter Alexander was very knowledgeable and great overall!!!
Everything was well received by me and my boyfriend. And the food was delicious.
The Melting Pot is by far the best restaurant I’ve ever been to. I will be going back a lot, besides it’s my girlfriend favorite restaurant.
Caleb was an awesome server and took excellent care of our group for dinner. Drinks were kept full and he gave very thourough explanations of everything on the menu.
Great service and overall experience; have liked the Melting Pot for years and it never lets me down. Keep in mind this is definitely not a place for a quick meal, though it is a great place to spend an evening.
The best restaurant for a date night or even a double date! So much fun- the best part is definitely the dessert so don’t skip out on that part.
Our waiter, Marcus, was great, food was amazing as usual. Great place for a special outing
Great food, friendly, attentive service. We also celebrated our daughter’s birthday, and they decorated a small plate with a small piece of cake with a candle. It said Happy Birthday on it, written in gel. Very nice! Food was easy to cook and delicious. Looking forward to our next visit.
Wonderful experience for a first time visit! Definitely will be there again!
Our waiter, Marcus Miller, was so much fun, and brought so much to the experience. Will definitely request him again when we return!
Food was great- dipping sauces for the meats were delicious.
Can’t wait to go back!
Father/Son trip to Birmingham.
Meat was tough, poor service, portions were small for pricing, however kid’s meals are great value!
Service and food were both wonderful. Excellent birthday dinner.
Alexander was a great server! This is not a quick pop in pop out kind of place but great for a good dinner and a chat.
This was our first time here and our waiter Marcus was awesome. Explained everything throughly also gave great recommendations. We will definitely be back and will request Marcus
My husband took me here for my birthday. It was a little over an hour and a half away from where we live, so I was super-excited to go. The Melting Pot did not disappoint! Our server walked us through the entire experience and gave us great suggestions. We had a blast! Thank you, Melting Pot, for making the last birthday of “my forties” so much fun!
Food was good, service was friendly but it took over 2 hours. We ordered cocktails when we arrived, got them 35 minutes later
Great, as usual. The chocolate covered strawberries were delicious!
Great food and service as always. :)
It's a bit of a drive for us but we don't mind because we always enjoy it thoroughly.
The Melting Pot is our favorite special occasion restaurant. We thoroughly enjoyed celebrating our anniversary there! Great food and great service!
Everything was lovely. I really enjoyed myself and will be going back soon.
Good experience even though we were not contacted about the note added to the reservation. We were celebrating an 8 year olds birthday and asked about a flower or balloon. Call if you have questions.
A friend and I went based off a recommendation from another friend and had a great time. I do recommend trying the 4 course to get the full experience. However I don't recommend here if you're not willing to pay for when you're really hungry. The 4 course was split between 2 people and the portion was fine. I definitely would go back just for drinks and desserts.
I’ve been going to Melting Pot for over three years and the service has always been excellent until the more recent months that I’ve visited more frequently. On my last visit of May 9th the service was awful. This visit was to celebrate my best friend’s birthday and the server acted as if he hated his job and people of color. Not once did he smile and I waited on him about 15 minutes after being seated before my drink order was even taken. As the night progressed, the service worsened. I was very disappointed! Since Melting Pot is my favorite restaurant, I decided to give you all another try. On my visit last night, my server was Thomas. Thomas was fairly nice, but very inattentive. I literally had to wave down other servers to get what I needed. Thomas seemed to disappear quite a bit. By the time I was offered a refill on my beverage, we were about to leave. The flow of the meal was was unacceptable! The cheese and the salad came pretty much together, which is not how it’s been done in the past. Once we were finished, there was at least a fifteen minute wait with no food on the table before Thomas arrived with the entrees. Dessert was pretty much on time, we ordered the flaming turtle. I noticed the prep was different, which caused it to taste different. I believe it was 151 that was used before and now it’s like a cooking spray. Horrible!! Also, he failed to stir the chocolate and left the pecans just sitting on top without stirring and just walked away. At Melting Pot you’re not just paying for a meal, you’re paying for an experience and needless to say.....this experience was just awful.
Waiter was polite helpful and atmosphere was pleasant and overall great first experience.
Service was slow to begin with but our waiter made up for that. Cheese and chocolate were great, entree and salad were mediocore for the price.
It was our 7 year wedding anniversary, they gave us a card and special plates that said happy anniversary. The server was fantastic and so was the food. We only went for dessert, but it was amazing and fun! Definitely recommend!
Overall another enjoyable experience
Great way to celebrate Mother’s Day!
The Melting Pot is our family's favorite special occasion restaurant. It missed the mark this time. The service was the worst it's ever been. We never got forks for our dessert and had to eat them with our skewers. The staff wasn't dressed as nicely as normal. It was a disappointing experience.
Had fun for my first visit. Waitress was great. Very friendly and helpful. I do think they should give people a heads up on how long you will be there. Also the menu/pricing a little confusing. But overall we had a great time and it was a neat and fun dining experience. Will come back next time without the kids! (Prices for kids too much imho)
Melting Pot is always phenomenal and this was no exception. Honesty was our server and she was amazing! Will definitely be back. Melting Pot is expensive but you pay for the experience, not just the food.
The restaurant was great so was the Food and Service. Will be a return Guest!
My mom, sister, and I came here before my sister and I went to prom. The experience was neat. We loved being able to have an appetizer and dessert fondue as well as cook my own food right at the table. The food wasn't as tasy as I expected, but it still was good. Our waitor was super patient and accomodating, as my sister has a stomach problem that requires different menu items/smaller potrions, and my mom has an extreme shrimp allergy. Overall, I loved going here but not sure I'll be returning with mom and my sister so I can try other things on the menu haha.
My family loves the Melting Pot. The management at the Birmingham location is excellent. We feel like we are reconnecting with friends when we visit. The food and atmosphere are excellent!
We were there to celebrate a birthday in a fun but low-key way. Everyone loved the food, and it is a fun experience every time. Our waiter was Alexander, and we all liked him very much. He did a great job.
Everything was amazing! The food was delicious as always. Our awesome waiter was a college student from Vestavia Hills.
Great for one time or speacial occasion. My family came in for the first time and unfortunately, they were really taken aback by the prices. We had cheese and dessert. Our waiter was great. Our food was great. The prices are too high for people to enjoy the experience. My family said they would not be back even though the food tasted great.
