The service was great, we never had to wait for anything. We went in for cheese and chocolate and both were delicious! A great experience all around as usual.

Our waitress had a very thick accent which made it hard to understand her. Coupled with the noise level in front room made for a questionable experience. We had been to restaurant prior and had a great time. We sat in back room and had a great waiter. Felt like our waitress was talking at us and not engaging us in conversation.

Requested a private table for my husbands and I’s date night. Was taken to a seperate part of the restaurant and seated in a very romantic private booth. The waitress was knowledgeable and friendly. The food was delicious and the fondue style was a lot of fun!

Don't get me wrong, the food was awesomely good, the aged teriyaki steak is butter in the mouth. The spinach and artichoke cheese fondue is perfect with the apple slices. The waitress was uber knowledgeable. And, if you happen to get one of the "hideaway booths", it's super quiet... But, price per pound? Not necessarily worth it imo... However, you could also argue value of ambiance in the price, and that'll get it close. Overall, I'd recommend it for fancy date night like anniversary or something along those lines. Just not a fiscal responsible place to take the kids, or just go to dinner randomly.

The food was great. Our Waitress was not. Several time we asked another person to get her to fill out water, more sauces, etc. she didn’t come check on us through out dinner. Also she asked if we were done while we were eating our salads and got our bill wrong. She was not personable at all.

Food was great as usual, however the service gets worse each time we are there. Server was nice and informative, seemed they were short staffed, even the manager was waiting tables. We were seated for an hour before we placed the first part of our order. I know it usually takes a couple hours to dine here, but 4 hours seemed a little longer than usual.

Food was outstanding, as usual. The table service was not as great as we have received in the last. I would rate it as fair to mediocre. Definitely not the level of service expected for a restaurant in this price range. We will be back though, and hope the service improves.

The Melting Pot was a fun experience. While the restaurant decor is dated, dark and drab, the fondue experience was unique and fun.

The price seems high for fondue food- dinner for three people was $177 with tip, but I guess you're also paying for the experience. At this price and food quality, I would limit visits to rare occasions.

I think management could update the interior with round tables and brighter, more festive decor for a better overall experience. An updated menu with some lighter, smaller portions to provide a more inclusive price point would increase the likihood of us returning more often.

Our waitress seemed like she was rushing us out. Everything was very quick and like she wanted us to be done. Asked for a straw a few times, never received one. It was very hot in the restaurant. I’ve been to the melting pot many times per year and it’s nevwr been hot like this.
The amount of food seems to have changed as well.
Seems like a lot less than in use to be

Definitely pricey, which is expected, but absolutely perfect for a special occasion. We were fortunately to be seated in the back section, which I recommend for a date or more intimate gathering as opposed to on the main floor. Servers were excellent, food was phenomenal (come hungry!).

If I could rate this restaurant more than 5 stars, I would. Everything was perfect. My husband and I were in a nice secluded area, and it felt like we were the only two people in the restaurant. Food was fantastic, and I plan on going back for literally every anniversary. Definitely my new favorite place to eat.

We loved our experience here! The food was absolutely amazing and so many different options. The drinks were reasonably priced too. We were given a table that was an intimate setting for our date night and our server was open to our questions and clarified things for us. The melting pot is an experience everyone should have at least once and we can't wait to go again!

We’ve been coming here for years and, as always, our experience was fantastic. Each of the 4 courses were equally delicious. How can anyone go wrong with the ying yang chocolate fondue? Oh yeah, you can’t! Only slight issue was the waitress kind of forgot about us a couple times. (Waited about 20 minutes for my drink to arrive)
Overall great experience and we will be back for sure. Highly recommend the Wisconsin cheddar cheese fondue.
