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 had such a wonderful night. We had 2 great waitresses who were very friendly and helpful.

Might have been one of my best experiences at a melting pot.

One of our favorite restaurants for 15+ years. Great food and atmosphere. Everyone is attentive and friendly, especially the manager Chris who always stops by when we dine and remembers us even if we go a few months without a trip to The Melting Pot. We go for birthdays, anniversaries, etc etc. Great for older kids (I would say 7+). Just make sure you reserve well in advance during the winter season.

We've enjoy The Boca Melting Pot for over 20 + years.
Tonight we brought friends from out of town who haven't been. We can not thank the staff enough. From Jen mixing it up behind the bar with great cocktails to Wendy who helped serve up something extra special for our guests. Natalie has done a great job with her staff and thus makes the experience exceptional every time.
From just a night out to special occasions, The Boca Melting Pot makes your night special.

Brian, the manager, is always checking on hostess and customers... Nice to see him on top of everything and visiting the tables of patrons. We had no problems, but he came to check on us twice! Earl, our waiter was efficient and cordial. Delicious evening... Just be sure to have some "Febreeze" at home and don't hang your clothes in your closet!!
