About The Melting Pot - Boise

At the Melting Pot we specialize in fun and interactive four-course fondue dinners, great for every occasion. The fondue experience begins with a savory cheese fondue prepared tableside, followed by your choice of fresh salad. For the main event, choose from a wide variety of tantalizing meats, seafood, and fresh vegetables, certain to please even the most particular of palates. Then cook them tableside in one of our savory broths or even in traditional oil. All of our entrée selections are paired with our famous house dipping sauces, including the garden fresh green goddess, our sweet teriyaki glaze, and the tangy ginger plum sauce. And just when you think it couldn't get better, the grand finale: a choice of decadent chocolate fondues presented with a platter of sweet bits for dipping.

We've been to many fondue places, and in Boise this seems to be the only one. Overall we had a great time, we never felt rushed and the waiter was really helpful and attentive. Food was delicious and really fair for what you got. We had a great date night and would recommend it again.

I highly recommend the melting pot for any occasion! The atmosphere was great and the staff was super informative, professional & friendly. We wanted to have a nice night out for our anniversary and the melting pot was the perfect place to spend some quality time together it was very quiet, and felt very private in our seating area, the food was AMAZING! They gave us an anniversary card as well. The perfect amount of food, highly highly recommend! Worth every penny!!! Thank you melting pot for an amazing night

The atmosphere is very intimate and comfortable. The staff is friendly and knowledgable. We went with their four-course dinner option and it did not disappoint. My only complaint (and it is a minor detail) is that the entree course was a little more laborious than we would have liked. Perhaps that is because we went with a food that required a little more attention. Everything else was top-notch.

My wife and I celebrated our 15th Anniversary ! We were looking for something "special", fun, and intimate... and The Melting Pot didn't disappoint! Our service was fantastic and the food was fresh and full of flavor. Because I booked through open table and let them know it was our anniversary, we were even given a Happy Anniversary card when we were seated. Great spot and we would recommend it!

Melting Pot has that upscale look, but doesn't feel like it; it's comfortable, welcoming, and far from feeling "snoody." The service was fantastic! Our server was fast, knowledgeable, and quick-witted in response to our terrible jokes and stories. After stuffing our faces full of delicious cheeses, garlic flavored cooking sauces, and great meats, we'll definitely be back.

We went there for my birthday, we had an okay experience. the waiter was great at first then it seemed like he just didnt want to deal with us anymore. he also didnt let us know that would count split up the bottle of wine when we specifically ordered a bottle to spilt. i was pretty disappointed that me and my friends didnt really enjoy themselves overall.

The Melting Pot is one of my favorite restaurants! I love having the full dining experience. Each course gets better and better. The staff is very knowledgeable about the menu and the recipes going into the pot. I really enjoyed the wine flight with our 4 course meal. Yummy yummy! I've never had a poor experience here and will continue to visit the Melting Pot for special occasions and a fun evening.

Excellent fondue three-course dinner. We had time to talk and laugh, and interact with our fantastic server. Not only was the meal itself delicious and filling, the dessert fondue was to die for. So yummy, and a fun dinner. Great time!

It had been a while since I had eaten at Melting Pot. The food was delicious, fresh and served table side. I forgot how much fun the restaurant was, getting to cook and dip your food. Everything tasted great....and the chocolate desert fondues....yummy! I will definitely not let so much time pass until my next visit!

We've always enjoyed special occasions at Melting Pot. Our only complaint is that the dipping options/quantities seem to have been reduced. There were 5 or 6 pieces of broccoli and 5 or 6 of cauliflower presented in a very small bowl. I don't remember ever having cheese left in the pot and nothing to dip it in. That was a bit disappointing.

Thankfully, the chocolate course did not disappoint. There were plenty of options. If not for the public setting, we probably would have fought to scrape the last of the chocolate out of the pot. We restrained ourselves.

Just disappointed in the portion size we did the cheese fondue and the chocolate we ordered the same quantity of both and yet it seem like the chocolate was half of what we got. It was just very disappointing for the price we paid I would’ve expected a little more so I don’t think will be going back

It's lamentable that they do not have their liquor license. But the wine and the food hold up well anyway. I say that. But the food and the wine were pretty frackin' awesome. Each bite is a morsel of awesome that team up on your face hole and start a small war over whether to smile uncontrollably like an idiot or eat more morsels of awesome.

As always, we had a wonderful experience, great food and very friendly wait staff (manager, too). The first time we ever visited The Melting Pot, I surprised my boyfriend (now fiancé)with a trip to your restaurant and The Anniversary Inn. He loved it, I loved it and we return when ever we get the chance. We drive all the way from Baker City, OR to visit you. This time we were returning for our ninth anniversary. We adored our waitress. She was fun and friendly and very accommodating with special needs and requests. The manager was truly wonderful with my food allergy issues. All in all, the entire staff working that evening went over and above the call of duty. We have never eaten at a restaurant where we were so well treated and tended to. Le will be back soon...

Nathan our server was excellent and he recommended one 4 course which we split with extra beef
The classic cheese was like Switzerland and the classic oil just as good
The chocolate fondue was excellent but we could can done with more fruit
Could not fault the food or service !

It was a fun experience. The food was good. It appears you don't get much food, but you do get full. ..it's possible because it takes a while to actually eat because you have to "cook" your own food, so you fill up waiting for your next bite. Because of this, it feels like it may be a bit over priced, but like i said, you're paying for the experience. Because of the price, we probably won't be back. However, I'm glad we have been and i recommend to people to at least try it once.
