Was a great time! My only complaint would be that before our table was ready, we went to the bar for drinks and were never asked what we wanted by the bartender. He seemed overwhelmed by restaurant drink orders. After about 15 mins our table was ready so we never got drinks.

It was my moms birthday and when we got to the table they had a card for her and chocolate covered strawberries(you have to call and say you have a coupon for free strawberries for your birthday) but it was amazing. The food was so good and the staff was so nice. She also got a plate that said happy birthday on it in strawberry sauce.

The Melting Pot is far by my favorite resturant. We got the 4 course meal which was outstanding. The bread and cheese was amazing, the salads were top-class. The meat was fun, delicious, and unique. I thought the dipping sauces were tasty, and went well with the meat. It was cool and different how you got to cook the meat yourself. The dessert- was amazing as always and delicious with the chocolate and the pastries. You will definatly see us here again.

Overall a good time. The menu is very confusing. The biggest issue is that you will leave hungry. I was very surprised by this. For example we ordered a extra side of the Tuna. Three small pieces? Last time I was there, a couple of years ago the food kept flowing. Even the vegetables were small, and only three types?

Something changed here and we would go back if this issue was fixed ma

We went for the $28 on 28th special. Our server Matt was great. Even though it was really busy he walked us through how the courses worked and made sure we had everything we needed throughout the dinner. He was very attentive without being overbearing. As always, it was a great experience!

We went to the Daddy Daughter Lunch at the Melting Pot. The meal was already selected except that we were able to choose the cheese and chocolate fondue. It was a good value except that they did a pretty significant up-charge on the (recommended) broth selected for the main course fondue, with out telling us until the bill came. I would recommend the Melting Pot, but make sure you understand all the charges so not to get any surprises.

Waitress was terrible. She never checked in on our table except to bring us our meal courses. When fondue pots were brought, she didn’t even mix it. Left it to the table.

Food was great as always. Fun to be able to cook your main entrée the way you want to. Our waiter was enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the menu. This is still a restaurant I would only go to very occasionally as it cost my boyfriend and I $130+ for a long island ice tea, two glasses of moscato, and the dine for two option (around $50 per person), which is a tad pricey for the amount of food you get in my opinion. We got the 4 cheese fondue, which was tangy and delicious with the bread cubes that came with it. The salad was a standard Caesar, but good, and we both got the steak lovers, which the meat just melted in your mouth. We finished with the banana foster chocolate fondue which was the perfect ending to the dinner experience. My long island ice tea was mixed well and my boyfriend's moscato was nice and sweet. It was a great place to choose for our date night, it's just too bad it was $130+ for the night for just two people.

Iam saddened by our recent visit. I had such fond memories of the many fondue parties my parents hosted in my youth. I booked the event so my children could embrace a bit of my childhood. The food portions were incredibly sparse and the suggested dishes were not desireable. All the cheeses choices were overly alcohol tasting, ruining the cheese tones.The bill ended up at over $100 and we drove directly over to mcdonalds because we were still so hungr. Being well mannered Canadians we did not want to make a scene at the establishment. We had travelled from Toronto Canada to enjoy a pre concert meal and ended up regretting our decision.
Sincerely,
Susanne Tusim

The service that we recieved was exceptional. It was our first time at any Melting Pot restaurant and our waitress was very patient and kind explaining the menu to us. However, the first thing I noticed was the strange aroma throughout the restaurant , which I presume to be the broth that you cook the meat in, but It was fowl. It smelled kind of fishy and it made it very hard to breathe. It was also very warm, which heightened the stench. I made reservations and we were sat in this nice quiet back area that was pretty private. I hadn't requested a private back room, but I was so thankful to not be out in the main dining room bc of how loud it was out there. The back room had a classy, romantic vibe, that I was very thankful for. We got the cheese fondue and the chocolate fondue. We skipped the 4 course meal because of the price. The 2 fondues came to about $30.00 which was very reasonable for two people to eat a light dinner. The experience was fun.

We have dined at Melting Pot several times over the past couple years and always enjoyed it. Usually we come in for the 28th on the 28th specials. This time when we went the food was excellent but our server was not attentive. We were there celebrating my husband's birthday and had ice cream cake for dessert. However he did not bring us forks and when he said he was leaving to get us forks he never came back with them as we watched the cake melt on our plates. Highly disappointed this time with Melting Pot.

When I booked online I said it was an anniversary and upon arrival .. my name was on the In house TV ! It felt very VIP walking in to that added touch! Our little secret “nook” table was sooo perfect for privacy and although I felt the server would forget about us so far into the maze of tables .. he was fantastic and beyond attentive ! Very informative on the menu and can’t say one negative thing about this dinner !! Thank you for making our romantic dinner sooo memorable!!

A wonderful ambience for a highly participatory experience. I like that the service includes unlimited "dippers" for the cheese and chocolate fondues. You will be more than satisfied with the volume of food. If you are up for a slower paced meal with friends and/or family, this is a great option. The wine selection was good as well. Certainly not a 'sports bar' if that's what you're looking for.
