The Melting Pot - Castleton
it was a great experience. a great place for a very special occasion, which this was for us.
it is VERY pricey - that is the only reason we won't go there periodically
This was my first time returning after about 15 years. I just remember it being better.
Food was excellent. Not happy that we were sat in the bar since we had a reservation. Waiter was super and did helped us have a nice evening (still did not like sitting in the bar).
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.
The food was fantastic then only problem was the floor and tree he ledge around our table and seats were filthy
This restaurant has become so loud disorganized and unprofessional I will most likely not return.
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!
Fondue is hard to do on your own and they make it easy with quality food in a great atmosphere with outstanding service.
They have been in business for more than 21 years - we now know why. Well done!
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.
Everything was perfection. Great first experience! I will be back for many more experiences ❤️
Very good food and service was outstanding. If anyone goes refer Justin as your server. He is the best server there with the best personality and helps with every bit of it.
We love going to the Melting Pot every year for our anniversary. Aside from great food, the romantic atmosphere cannot be beat. We would both highly recommend! We can't wait until next year!
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.
Very awesome atmosphere! So nice we ate two days in a row! Jessie(sp) was amazing!
The food is absolutely wonderful. The service was good. Our burner did have trouble at first not lighting. But after that was sorted the food cooked fast. Chicken. Steak. Chocolate. All wonderful 9/10
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.
We loved our waitress, I believe her name was Keke? She was great and very personable!!
Wonderful experience, will definitely go again. Justin did a fantastic job.
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
Would have been a near perfect experience if our server was attentive. We were out of drinks the entire 3rd course and she was nowhere to be found. Very disappointing.
This was a great experience. Just a heads up you are cooking the food which makes things interesting. Great place for intimacy and dinning.
Loved the private table in the back! Good cheese, good chocolate, great ambiance.
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!).
Our first experience at the Melting Pot was excellent! We look forward to going again.
The food was great although I wish you got more cheese fondue but that’s just me lol our waiters were great but the bartender was awesome (also one of our waiters!) he really helped give great advise!! We will definitely continue to come back!
Celebrated my daughter’s 18th birthday. Great food, wonderful service.
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!
My favorite place to eat in Indy. A little pricey, but a great meal every time. Take my kids frequently and they both love it too.
Over all a great experience....For a special occasion it is great to check it off of your list to do. Routinely too pricey, for what you get. Thanks for a great Valentine dinner!
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.
My husband and I always love to come here. I miss the second batter option for Bourgonogne. The single batter option does not seem to hold on the food like it use to so something changed. I loved the old batter and my husband likes the current one. We don’t come here as often due to this. It i
Our server Drew was amazing! Very friendly and knowledgeable about the food.
It was a great experience for an anniversary. Love the perfect 2 person tables with high dividers.
We went to The Melting Pot to celebrate my boyfriend getting out of the army. He had never been, and loved it. Our server was Drew and was very polite, charming, attentive, and funny
Amazing food, staff, and atmosphere. Would do it again and again
Really nice for something different! Great for a special evening.
This place is voted best romantic evening in Indy. I don't think Indy knows what romantic means. We had reservations for a month. We got there 10 minutes before oir time. Had to wait 20 minute over our reservation time. Went to the bar. Sat there 15 minutes. Then got sat. After 30 minutes the bartender yelled across the bar area "sorry didn't know you were table" and she still never came over. 10 minutes later we got a server. We were in the building an hour and 25 minutes before we got a water. Food took forever to come out. Manager was just flirting with the bartender the whole time. At one point he removed our drink glasses so we had to share our water. What should have been an hour meal, was a 3 hour disaster. The place was dirty. Plates were chipped. The bartender took 30 minutes to make us a margaritas and she didn't make it right. In was loud enough for the manager to hear that we were extremely unhappy several tomes during the meal and he did nothing. Didn't try and make it better or comp anything. The bartender went on 5 smokes breaks during our time there. There were couples that came in an hour after us, got served and left in an hour. If the bartender and manager think they were good workers they are idiots. Sharon the server that took over our table was great. She had several tables and was working very hard. But its hard to pick up the slack the lazy manager and bartender left. Will not return. Would had a better meal at Applebee's.
