Overall I would say it was very good. The food was good and all. Some stuff seemed rushed, our plates had just been washed and were damp and had a few pieces of herbs maybe on them nothing major. Always had full drinks and server was attentive. However we spent close to $400 at dinner. We didn’t get that much bread to use in the first course and had left over cheese and by the time our server came back when we were going to ask for a few more pieces the cheese was hard. Other than that it was really good

We came to the Melting Pot for our annual holiday dinner with another couple. We’ve always had a table with 2 burners and this year we just had one. Disappointed because both couples have their favorites and we couldn’t each enjoy them due to one burner. The meal was still excellent but just a bit disappointed. Our service was very good considering she was working the bar and tables in the dining area. Luckily, her coworkers stepped up and helped out. Great team work.

We plan to come back again next year, just hope for an overall better experience.

The fresh ingredients (broccoli, apples, strawberries, pineapple) were beyond expired. The broccoli had brown tips. Canned pineapple.

The portions of vegetables have gotten smaller and smaller and worse quality over the past 5 years.

My family of 4 spent $200 on dinner that was not fresh. The steak was poor cuts. We waited a very long time between courses as they were short staffed.

It needs to be freshened up with a coat of paint at the very least in the dining area.

Our server, Jessie, made the perfect cheese. We’ve been coming to this MP for a long time, and a frequent-flyers. This was hands down the best-made cheese we’ve ever had at the melting pot. We get the alpine every time. We will be asking for her from now on. Great service!

Dinner was very good, the waitress didn't know how to open a bottle of wine though... and the bill was kinda confusing, but other than that it was very nice. It isn't a quick dinner, it's an experience, and very nice for a date. Me and my boyfriend were in a booth that was secluded so it ended up being even more romantic that I expected. Melting Pot has always been one of my favorite restaurants, this night was great.

The melting pot is a fantastic restaurant experience, especially when they are not very busy. Our last visit was on a Friday night, and though it was late in the evening and things seemed to be winding down, the service was incredibly slow and inattentive, and many numerous mistakes with our order. We have had better experiences here in the past and will likely return, but that night did not go as well as we would have liked it to, especially considering it was our anniversary.

Server and food was great. Made reservation for 9 P.M. showed up early around 8:30 P.M. watched two other couples come in without reservations and they were told the earliest they could get in was 10 and 1030, however both of them were seated before we were.

Jonathan was wonderful. It was a very busy evening and we could tell they were a little short staffed but he made sure we had everything we needed and made our 14year olds birthday special.
The food and ambiance are always great and our experience was perfect.
Thank you!

The Melting Pot is a great place for a higher end family outing. The food is good but the higher prices are for the experience which is fine in my opinion. Our server was absolutely incredible and really made our anniversary meal feel special. My only recommendation to anyone who hasn't eaten there before is to eat in a booth out on the floor. We were in a private room and it was easily 80 degrees in there. For a 4 course meal that lasts 2+ hours, we were ready to go by the time dessert arrived. Other than that it was a wonderful evening!

We were a little hesitant to dine here after reading some poor reviews, but we're glad we decided to give it a try.
Rochelle was absolutely wonderful, and she truly made our dining experience worthwhile - while the food was delicious, her genuine, pleasant demeanor really made our night! Also, I highly recommend going a little earlier in the evening to miss the big crowds and long wait time.

Last Saturday was easily the worst experience we have had here. Our server, while very nice, was completely overwhelmed and scattered. She forgot entrees and refills a few times. We were told that due to the loooong time we waited between courses that it would be comped. That never happened. Not once did a manager come by to check on us or offer an apology. We’re didn’t order anything extravagant. Nor were they extremely busy. The server brought us the check (after waiting 20 minutes for it) and it was for the full amount. We just wanted to get the heck out of there so we paid it in full. This whole dinner from start to finish took over 3 1/2hrs. That’s insane.

Celebrated my wife’s birthday. This is the second time we’ve visited this location, and each time it has been excellent. I have some significant food allergies, and each time they took great care to discuss then and even let me read various packages to make sure I was safe and comfortable eating it. Will definitely come back!

Great food. Server was nice kid and very personable but very slow service overall. I get the sense they were short staffed. 2 hrs and 40 mins from arrival to departure. While this is longer than normal dinner, this is about 40 mins to an hour longer than normal.

Our dining experience at Melting Pot was a very pleasant one. We decided to go with the 4-course dinner, and the first (cheese fondue) and last (chocolate fondue) were definitely the highlight of the evening. They also had $5 martinis, which were well made.
A good place for special occasions.

We have made it a fall break family tradition. I’m not a fan of every flavor but I do love the variety. The cheeses and chocolate are exceptional (any). I enjoy the addition of the grill option. It’s a dining Experience (it takes time). Greek goddess is to die for (just saying). Overall 5 stars.

It was supposed to a special birthday in the pictures and online was this all beautiful way they presented it. And that is by no means how it can out. That was disappointing. Food was great. Took 20 mins to get a bartender then another 20 to get a waitress. When our oringal waiter did not even address us.

I always have such a great time here! This restaurant is just such a change of pace compared to other restaurants. I went for my anniversary with my boyfriend and it was amazing. The fondues were so amazing, super flavorful. Definitely recommend the flaming turtle dessert fondue. Also our server, Jonathon, made it even better! Very attentive and made sure our anniversary was great. HIGHLY recommend!

I love coming to The Melting Pot. I always have a great experience. One thing that I would love to see change would be better lighting. I have to turn my cell phone light on to read the menu and I would enjoy my food more if I could see what’s around me.
