We had a wonderful meal (as always), but the service was slow last night and one person in our party had to ask for drink refills 2 or 3 times before a new one would come. There were also delays between courses, which was unusual. Many times when we have visited in the past, you are barely through with the previous course when the next one arrives. The food was great though and we even got extras of our favorite dessert dippers!

Most of the experience was very clunky. We were seated 15-20 minutes after our reservation time. After waiting a bit for our waitress, she took our drink order and then came back to take our food order. When taking the food order, she did not ask for half of what we wanted for an entree and we had to call her back over. During the meal, burners were left on 15 for the entirety of the meal leading to high smoke and it became increasingly warm. The cheese began to burn on the side of the bowls as well. The entrees were then served and our waitress accommodated us by bringing over additional vegetables and dipping sauces. However, we did not see her again until it came time for dessert. When it came to desert, we had similar issues with the chocolate burning and we were left without skewers after being told she would be right over with them and some water. I had to ask the bartender to take some skewers to our table and then we had to ask the waitress again for more water. Overall not the best experience for something you are paying a premium for.

For a family with little children and going for the first time, this was a little stressful. For the price the cuts of meat were okay but not what I expected. A $10 bottle of wine was $30, that’s when I realized everything was marked up to give an ambience of high scale. $40 a person to cook your own food, We will pass next time.

It was the first time for my boyfriend and I to be there. And just sadly we weren't wowed as much as we thought that we would be. The best parts of the night were probably the Salads, and the dessert.

The Melting Pot is one of our favorite restaurants. We went to celebrate our son’s acceptance to college. We did the four course meal and it was delicious. We tried the bourbon bacon cheddar fondue and it was terrific! The salads and main courses were fresh and flavorful and we liked the sauce pairing card we were provided. We finished our meal off with the S’mores fondue which was delicious!! The staff were personable, responsive to requests, checked in with us when we needed them and timed each part of our meal perfectly.
