The food was as good as I remember. But, the service was dreadful. The staff just seemed to be overwhelmed. This is the COVID era, so perhaps they had some staffing issues.

Wait staff was not very attentive for the first 3 courses and took over a half hour to get anything to drink. We did not get drinks till we said something to the hostess that brought the cheese course.

We had a wonderful meal. Our waitress was attentive. She explained the process so our daughter felt comfortable. We had two hours of uninterrupted family time as we processed through all four courses. We left relaxed, full, and smiling.

We go to the Melting Pot every year for my daughter’s birthday. We have never had a bad experience and the wait staff is fantastic. This time we especially enjoyed our waiter, Jimmie. He not only took great care of us but was so personable and very nice. Highly recommend both the restaurant and Jimmie.

Everything was very good as expected. Great atmosphere for date night with my lady. Make sure you plan for at least two hours as it does take time. Service wasn't perfect but our server was new so I'm sure she'll get better with time. I can see she's trying to do her best.

One of our waiters wasn’t attentive to our table at all. We had to ask several times for things or someone else would end up helping us instead. Either plates were left for way too long to be picked up or they were taken from us without us even being finished. Staff just overall seemed very unaware.

Service was extremely slow dinner, took over 3 hours! First time sitting in the bar area and didn’t like it as much as the dining rooms. Waitress was also bar tending which led to the slow service. Food was excellent as always. Loved their vegan cheese fondue, it was as good as the original! Had someone with a dairy allergy with us and they had great menu options for both her and a vegetarian.

We had a reservation for 6/19/2020. Everything went smoothly with getting seated, putting in our order, and getting our drinks. When the waitress returned to make the cheese, it exploded. I have burns down my left arm. We left the table quickly and she yelled for a manager. The manager came over, realized what happened, and went to the kitchen to bring out the prep team. He lectured them on safety and training tips. My sister asked about cleaning up the table and was told to use our napkins from our utensils. Another employee came over to switch out the cheese pot. By the time everything was cleaned, and we were able to sit back down, the cheese was cold. The manager returned with burn cream for my arm and to ask if we needed anything. We requested the sides that went with the cheese due to not being given any. The waitress brought out the sides and disappeared. When we finished with the cheese, another employee came and cleaned off the table. At this point, the waitress came back and provided salads and instructed a different employee on where to put the pots for the meat. We asked for drink refills. The table behind my mother had their cheese course. Their pot exploded. It went over the chair and on my mother's back. The meat course came out. We asked for refills again. The waitress disappeared for almost 30 minutes. When she returned, she and another employee cleaned the table. We asked for drink refills again. The chocolate came out. We had to ask for utensils and were told to just eat off the fondue fork that goes into the pot. We asked for drink refills again. We got one of the three drinks. The manager never came back to check on us. The waitress offered more burn cream, but nothing else.

This visit to the Melting Pot was a first for my wife and I; and something long awaited due to Covid canceling multiple reservations this year. We were not disappointed! The service was great, our server went over everything and took the time to recommend items, the atmosphere was amazing for our meal and the food was spectacular. We both can’t wait to return.

Always love the Melting pot for special Birthday celebrations, always delicious. Tried some new dishes, including the vegan cheese and chocolate for a dairy allergy that was as good as the regular ones, impressive! Service was extremely slow (over 3 hours) for a combination of reasons; due to curfew many reservations times changed, understaffed and we had a new server. We weren't in a big rush so we enjoyed it. Management stepped in and overall we had a fun evening. Can't wait to due it again! Thank you for a wonderful 25th birthday for my Wonder Twins!
