    Service and food were good. Price was outrageous. They said my wife would get a flower (1 rose) for Mother’s Day the charged me $10 for it. $10 for one rose?? Also told my kids they could get extra snacks for the chocolate fondue for no charge then charged me for that as well. Spent $350 for 5 people.

    Everything was fantastic! We were here to celebrate my promotion at work, and it was my family's first time coming to Melting Pot. The staff made us feel so welcome, and it was truly special to celebrate with them. I've been here a few times before, and everything is always excellent. Thank you!
