Apparently they were short staffed and so we were not seated for our 7:30 reservation until almost 8:00. After that we were seated in the bar area when there were lots of open tables in the main restaurant. Our waiter was very nice but was playing bar tender as well and so our food took a long time to come out. It was not the service we have come to expect at The Melting Pot. The food was still good however and we did enjoy our dinner.

When we had a melting pot in Syracuse at destiny, my husband and I enjoyed going there every year to celebrate our anniversary. I was very happy when I found out there was a melting pot in buffalo because we had planned on traveling to Niagara Falls for our anniversary this year and it was perfect. We were very disappointed in our experience with this melting pot. The lighting was so terrible I actually had to use the flashlight on my phone in order to see my menu. What should have been maybe a 2 hour dinner, turned into a 3 and a half hour dinner. And I’m not sure why since it was not that busy in the restaurant. We were supposed to take our desert to go but after waiting for the check for 30 minutes we lost our patience and had to leave. This unfortunately will be our last visit to the melting pot.

I have gone to this location in the past and had a fantastic time. I understand the server was new but the experience was terrible. They no longer cooked the food at the table. All the items were melted and ready for consumption except for the meat by the time it got to the table. It took forever to get drinks, service, silverware, pay the bill, etc. I was severely disappointed this time around.

Two birthdays with rose/picture package. Once the waitress came we moved stuff out of the way, so I believe that is why the picture part was forgotten. Planned on two hours, spent almost THREE. We were having such a good time enjoying our family.

Our server Nick was wonderfully attentive. Although I was there while the special was endless fondue, we ordered only cheese and salads. It would be nice if they had a special that was tailored to the fondue that you want instead of having to order all the courses.

Cheese and chocolate are amazing. The meat and vegetable course continues to be underwhelming. Not bad just not as good as the others. Good service and a good time.

My family and I have been to Melting Pot before, so we know what we're in for. But this was terrible. Table next to us with 5 EXTREMELY LOUD and profane women. We talked to our server and to the manager about it. Both basically shrugged their shoulders and indicated they couldn't do much about it (translation: these people are drinking and we want to keep them drinking and running up their tab). I on the other hand had a party of 6 without booze (we were ONLY paying a check of about $240), so they cared less about us than they did this other gaggle of obnoxious people. Oh, and do you think I can find anyplace online to make this comment directly to Melting Pot? Nope. Impossible to find. This will be my last time at this place.

Chuck, I do apologize that you were unhappy with your seating location in proximity to a more boisterous party. I assure you that we do not rank or rate our guests' importance based the size of their bill and I'm sorry that you left with that impression. I did take a look at the seating chart for that evening and there would have been no available table to move either you or the other party to. In any case I'll reach out to you by phone today to discuss further. Best, George K Manager

Unfortunately the chicken that we had was very chewy and had a rubber texture. I know it is not the resturants fault the chicken was bad. You should be aware that some of your pieces a not good and that really ruined the meal for my daughter she would not eat any of the chicken there were four of us and each one of us had at least one bad piece. At 30-45 dollars a person ornis a shame that the meal could not be eaten.

So much food! But really good. Fun experience and friendly staff. A little warm in the restaurant, probably due to the steaming pots and hot weather outside. Also, it's very pricey. Overall very good experience and will go again.

Our waitress Stephanie was phenomenal, and an absolute joy. She was friendly, personally and I feel went above and beyond. The food was delicious, the bartender was knowledge and made delicious drinks.
