    Lexi was an amazing waitress! The food was awesome. We were just sad we couldn’t enjoy it as takeout because we’re staying at a hotel for our honeymoon. She even made a little note on a plate wishing us a happy honeymoon. Great service, great food. We highly recommend!

    Found a little green worm on the table after our main course. I'm sure this happens with having vegetables but for $ 175 dollars for a meal you basically cook I would have hoped they had cleaned the vegetables better.

    We had a party of 7 and the seating was very poor. 2 booths next to each other. They used to have a round table for larger groups and it worked well. I will not return with a larger group unless they have a better arrangement!

    Out only issue was inconsistent service. She came and was very friendly but then disappeared for long period of time. For example we asked for extra dippers for the appetizer and it took her 15 Minutes to reappear. Same thing happened when we asked for extra sauces for meal. We were almost done eating by the time she came back with them.

    Anna was our waitress and we are so glad she was taking care of us. She was so nice and explained everything! The food was amazing! You'd think there isn't enough food but it's a lot! We got the dinner experience which was cheese fondue, salad, entree fondue and dessert fondue! The manager coming over and saying hello was a nice touch too. We can't wait to come back soon!

    We always have a good time here. The food was excellent. I love their Cajun shrimp with the curry dip, and of course the chocolate. We celebrated my daughter’s grade 8 graduation. Service was great.

    I’ve been to the melting pot many many times in various states and it was once an intimate dining experience. Now it is a chain restaurant experience. Where they once made your cheese fondue at the table they now bring a premade cheese fondue. Not as tasty as it once was. The booths are not private any more. It’s like being in any other chain restaurant. They have lost the appeal of once being special and honestly the food was tasteless. Very dissatisfied and will not return to any of them in any city

    I usually give this restaurant 5 stars on every visit, and we travel from Toronto quite a few times a year just to eat here. I’m not sure if it’s corporate or franchisee, but the service level has changed. You used to get table side service where they ‘created the meal’ in front of you. After Covid, it went to a ‘we bring it prepped’. The service sped up - big time. Now it feels like they want you in and out in record time. The last two times, the worst being yesterday, the server was literally pushing plates out of the way to make room for the next course. We still had cheese left and she’s slamming in the salads. Then she shows up with the chocolate while the hot broth is still on the table and is using one pot to push the other, etc. It was just sloppy from what I’ve become so used to. I miss the slow, relaxed ambiance. It just feels like a Kelsey’s or turn table restaurant experience now with a $120CDN bill to pay at the end of it all. It’s becoming too expensive and too different to justify the trip any more. Overall, the food is great, but they really need to rethink front of house strategy and appreciate those that are paying these prices to eat with so many other options out there.
    The Melting Pot - BuffaloResponded on May 8, 2024
    Hello, thank you for the feedback. I apologize you felt rushed during your dinner, that certainly is not our intention. A lot of the feedback we have gotten from guests is that the experience takes too long, so we have been focused on eliminating any gaps between courses and finding the right pace. With that said, we always try to let the guest dictate the pace, which I apologize did not happen. We certainly want you to be able to relax and eat at your own pace. In the future, please don't hesitate to let your server know if things are moving too quickly. I would appreciate it if you could give me a call so I can get your information and do something to make it up to you. I can be reached at 716-432-6640, Thank you, Jim Materese Owner
