Make your reservations early as it will take about 2 hours to complete your dining experience. We were one of the last tables there and felt kind of rushed to finish

We love coming here for special occasions, we like to get dressed up and enjoy the great food. Our server made us feel rushed at first but once he understood what we wanted he was perfect. The suggestions he made were spot one. Another perfect night!

This was the first time we went to dinner at the Melting Pot and it is a very unique dining experience, so we went in slightly unsure of how things were to work. At the end of it all, we were not disappointed. We did the 4-course option which begins with a cheese fondue to share and a variety of items to dip (they will bring you more of anything you like), then we each received a salad of our choice, an entree which is served raw along with a pot to cook your own food in (there are several styles to choose from, but you have to share the same style), and then finally a delicious chocolate fondue with more items to dip. The food was all very tasty, but if you are looking to avoid working for your meal, this is not the place for you. It was a fun experience and we definitely plan to go back!

Our meal was decent but our service was bad. We got our salads as soon as the cheese came out. Then we ordered a second round of drinks at this time and didn’t get them until after dinner was over. We waited a long time for a waitress to come check on us after dinner was served as we needed more sauces but she didn’t come until we were almost done. And waited a long time again to get our dessert. We had to go to the bar to ask for our bill. For a 240 meal, we shouldn’t have had to wait for anything

Teen daughter's favorite restaurant.
She did outstanding on a test, so I surprised her with a reservation.
Melted cheese, rare meat, chocolate for dipping - yum.

Food and service were excellent. Only issue I had was when setting up my reservations online I asked to add the half dozen rose package to my order. I put it in the comments section. Unfortunately that never happened. Not sure if someone missed it or what. Would have been nice to have that added as we came to celebrate my wife's birthday.

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.
