Everything was great except our waiter disappeared constantly for periods of 30-45 plus minutes, which caused it to be a 4 hour dining event until almost 11pm with a group of 6 people who were exhaust from waiting. We eat at the Melting Pot a lot and the waiter made this a very disappointing birthday dinner event.

We had a lovely experience celebrating a milestone birthday. Salads were delicious. Main course we all tried different foods with the coq au vin cooking style. I appreciated the table tents with recommended cooking times. The dessert course was fantastic! We ordered dark chocolate cookies and creme. Our waiter, Anthony, was very nice and attentive. It was quiet which was great for conversation. We will definitely be back.

Dinner with eldest daughter, while she was in town
Server was absolutely excellent, the ambiance was mitigated by setting just inside entrance and everyone else passing by. noise level was fair, unfortunately the couple in the next booth were very loud.

We have been to the Melting Pot several times over the past 10+years and this was by the far worst experience. We love this place to celebrate birthdays, anniversaries and whatever else. It will be awhile before we’re back. While we waited on our reservation we sat in the bar and had three bartenders in the time we sat there. None of which knew how to bartend, and of those was our waitress and didn’t know how to do that either. I ordered my original flirtini and my husband ordered a dirty martini. Both absolutely horrible. The wait was stupid during all sections of the experience. Burning smell at our table and throughout the entire restaurant at other burners. Waitress was rude. Overall 1/10

Service is always lacking at this Melting Pot. Took 25 minutes to get our drinks. Once server brought food, she never stopped by the table again. We had requested a 2nd sauce but it was never brought to us. Had to track down the server for our bill. Good food but disappointing service, especially for what you pay.

There was 6 of us, we come easily 2 times per month, this time the waitress wasn’t attentive, the order came out wrong and the broth was flavorless, I will be back but hope better next time.

My daughter choose this as her location for her birthday dinner. We had a lovely waiter but I am guessing due to the staff shortage nationwide, he was spread thin. We had some wait time for drinks and in between courses. Overall, four of us had a wonderful time. We will definitely be back!

Our romantic dinner was ruined by a group of people who were extremely loud and most likely drunk. I wish the restaurant would give a choice to be seated in a loud room or more quiet room. These people were the only ones carrying on like this in the whole restaurant.

We are Melting Pot fanatics and have been to this location before. It has really gone downhill. Our server was kind but it was apparent she was overwhelmed with the amount of tables she was serving. We were served incorrect drinks by the bar and the waitress who delivered those was unapologetic. Cheese is my favorite course at melting pot. We ordered the Alpine and it was horrible. I don't know if the wine was doubled or if it sat boiling in the pot for too long but our cheese never fully melted in to the pot so we were just soaking bread in hot wine. I normally ask for seconds of bread but in this case we didn't even finish it. The salad portion was a joke, so small. The broth was poured and we were told we would receive our entrees in 5-8 minutes and did not receive them until 45 minutes later when they also had to refill the broth that had evaporated. The wait for everything was so much slower than usual, in fact we were at the restaurant for over three hours. I wish there was another Melting Pot location in the area as it is our favorite restaurant and this one is just not good anymore.

I took my daughter for the first time. The service was great even though they were short staffed. The food was great as always. The only thing that was annoying was the table next to us where the couple was extremely loud but that is out of the control of the restaurant.

I was very disappointed with our experience. Service was extremely slow and servers were arguing in front of guests. The whole experience was tainted by the inability to manage the food and drink distribution.
