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.

Took my son and his 3 children here for a Sunday afternoon lunch/dinner. The kids were 4,5 and 15 and everyone absolutely loved it!

Great options, great taste and great service.

Thank you so much as we will come back here every time they are in Boise.

I made reservations for our Galentine's Day for 12 girls and it was an amazing experience! Many of the girls had never been to The Melting Pot before and thoroughly enjoyed it. The food was great! And our server was so helpful!

I went there for my birthday with a party of 15. This is the secind time I've been there with a large party. They can easily handle a geoup of that size and it is just so much fun! The food is amazing and when you are there with a group it is fun to walk around and try the different types of fondu, it becomes a social event. It is a bit pricey but worth it for the overall experience. I'll definitely go back again.

Had a great dinner at the Melting Pot. We enjoy good food and were pretty impressed with the quality of meats that they served. The key is to not overcook it so it becomes rubbery. We had the Wisconsin Trio cheese and really liked it. I would highly recommend the yin/yang chocolate with dark/milk together. They had a decent wine list. All in all it was a very nice meal.

We were celebrating our anniversary, and had probably the best Waiter I've seen in a long time. His timing was impeccable, he was very attentive yet didn't 'hover.'.

We have made it a tradition to bring our daughter to the Melting pot for dessert for her birthday. This year we were disappointed in the quality of the chocolate and most of all, the price. Enough where my 12 year old daughter has requested to no longer visit the melting pot on her birthday. The chocolate lacked creaminess and a good chocolate flavor. The food used to dip in the chocolate had almost a stale, dried out flavor and texture. We were charged for 2 servings for each pot of chocolate which we did not ask for. My husband and I did not partake in any of the chocolate fondu, and we brought an entire plate home with us. Our bill was $40....for dessert. Again, we were very disappointed this year.

The meal was phenomenal, we went for our 2 year anniversary and our waiter was very friendly and the food was delicious. Everything was explained very well and there were plenty of options. Worth the price.

It was excellent. Our waiter did a hell of a job with making sure we were taken care of, but not overrun by ,”how is everything? Do you need more water? Would you like me to blow your nose, etc.” he prepared our food it was the right temp, it was plated beautifully. The ambience was everything and more that we imagined. Thank you melting pot!

The food was amazing as it always is. If it wasn't for the food, we wouldn't come. We've had a few servers who were duds. But this last server just had a poor attitude and didn't listen to us with our request. This time we used a 25% off coupon for once and he seemed dumbfounded. I don't think we got our discount because we didn't get to see the whole bill. But just a poor attitude for $150. But will always come for the food.

The food was fine but we had a rather poor server. We know they're not all like that as we could observe other tables doing better. Ambiance is great.

Everything was great as always except our waiter was really dull. Not typical of the Melting Pot. Other wait staff at other tables seemed much more personable and entertaining. Always great food and fun.
