The Melting Pot - Boca Raton Ratings and Reviews
Excellent atmosphere as usual. Noise level was a bit higher that we would've liked as we were placed next to a larger, rambunctious group - but that cannot be helped. That had nothing to do with the wonderful, romantic ambiance that this restaurant always provides. The Wisconsin Cheddar cheese and Milk Chocolate Fondues are superb and highly recommended. We had the Valentine's special which included the salad and meat fondue. Overall, I highly recommend the Melting Pot for any romantic or special evening yo may have with your significant other. Definitely not for kids as they may get burned with the burner that is quite hot.
I added the romance package and it was more than worth it. My girlfriend was very excited to see the rose petals on the table and the vase of beautiful (seriously, perfect roses) flowers as the privacy curtain was opened. We later received a framed photo of the two of us and a box of chocolate covered strawberries to take home. Food was solid, and fondue is always fun. The service was perfect. Great experience!
The staff was amazing. Being obviously fully booked it was clear the staff was going above and beyond to make sure no one was waiting a moment longer than they had to for their table. We were updated often and seated in a very reasonable amount of time. Our waiter was very personable and made sure were had everything we needed throughout the night. The manager stopped by to check on us and apologized for any inconvenience getting our table, a very nice thing even though we didn't feel there was a problem at all. The entire staff made our 10th anniversary dinner even more memorable.
We love The Melting Pot in Boca and would recommend it highly!
We do not live close to a Melting Pot so when we came to Florida, we decided that we should find one and go there. We were delighted. Our server was wonderful, friendly, welcoming and accommodating. It's a fun treat and we loved the food, the ambiance and the overall experience!
We had some issues with this restaurant. We have been at The Melting Pot in another city which was superb and this one lacked in several respects. One, our table was not ready for 10 minutes ever though we entered just after our scheduled time. Two, the server kept bringing items with gluten in them even though from the beginning we told him nothing with gluten. Three, the service was amazingly slow and we waited 25 minutes between our cheese fondue and the entree. We were disappointed.
I ate at the melting pot in Boca on New Year’s Day because my daughter loves going there.
I was overcharged on my check and when I questioned the waiter, he told me that I was mistaken about my memory of the pricing on the menu but offered to have his manager take some money off of the bill. I told him that I am happy to pay for what I ordered and that was unnecessary. I paid my check and left a 20% tip but became even more suspicious when the waiter returned my credit card with the slips to sign but without the itemized receipt that I was originally presented with and is common practice at every restaurant I’ve ever eaten at and paid with a credit card.
Feeling that something wasn’t right and that the waiter had blatantly lied to me when I questioned the pricing on my bill I asked the hostess to see a menu on my way out of the restaurant. When I saw the menu again and realized that I was correct and that I had not only been overcharged, but also lied to by the snarky waiter, I complained again. First to the waiter who knew that he had gotten caught and who had nothing to offer except to have me speak with his manager.
When the manager came over and I explained what had happened he basically told me that I should not be calling his waiter a liar. I told him that I was either blatantly lied to, or that his “experienced” waiter was incompetent and didn’t understand the restaurant’s menu.
The manager rudely asked what he could do to remedy the situation. As the dollar amount was literally less than $10 I told him that what I wanted was for his waitstaff to charge customers correctly and not to lie when they get caught overcharging.
He went in the back and came back with $40 cash which didn’t cover my meal or the too generous tip that I had left.
Not the 1st time I’ve had similar issues at this place but will most certainly be the last as I will never eat there again.
Rip Off, check you bill before you pay!
My friends and I have loved to fondue at the Melting Pot ever since the 1990's at the Lake Worth location. It's wonderful spending a couple of hours with family or friends dining at a leisurely pace having great conversation. Everyone at the Boca Raton location from our server, Steve, to the manager were very attentive. Our Bananas Foster Fondue was Delicious. The other 3 courses were great as well.
The service here was genuine, not phony, and was excellent and attentive. We've been to about 5 different Melting Pot locations, but I think we enjoyed this one the best. The decor is beautiful dark wood which felt very relaxing and the space felt very open and yet cozy at the same time, because of the high-walled booths. There are optional curtains to close off your booth for privacy, if you choose.
We are always eating at Melting Pot for an occasion, either our wedding anniversary or my birthday. This time it was our anniversary. Yet this is the very first location that has offered to take our picture then print it and give it to us (free) in a cardboard folder that thanks us for celebrating with them! That was such a very nice touch! If you join their email list, they send you a coupon where you get a box of 6 fancy chocolate covered strawberries from their kitchen if you dine there during your anniversary (or birthday) month. So we left the restaurant the other night with a box of treats to eat.
My son and I took my wife out for her birthday. The experience was fantastic! The food was terrific (the cuts of beef were steak house quality), the amount of food was just right and the dessert was a delicious sugar rush high. Our server, James, was extraordinarily gracious and guided us through the whole evening. It is no wonder Melting Pot has been a Boca icon for so many years.
We dined at melting pot for our anniversary and had a wonderful experience. The staff really went above and beyond to make the whole night special. Our server was great, and the food was great, as always. We were seated at a table with a curtain, which was a nice touch. We will be back for another special occasion.
