    Been over 20 years since last visit and decided to finally go and bring another couple. Jill was our server and she did an outstanding job taking care of us. The manager even stopped over and checked on us, nice guy. Food was good, had the Oktober fondue fest. Everyone enjoyed it and definitely plenty of food. Great experience and fun to have an interactive dinner. Thought the prices were a little steep, however since not going in so long the sticker shock wasn’t too painful. Still left with a smile on my face. Thanks. !

    The Melting Pot - CincinnatiResponded 3 days agoBobM, Thank you so much for taking the time to let us know about your experience with Jill! Oktober Fondue Fest is new and is definitely a fun interactive dining experience. We appreciate your support and look forward to having you back sometime soon. Have a great weekend! Jarred W -GM

    It was all amazing!! My husband and I went for our 14th anniversary. All of the sauces were so good and I didn’t know this when we were there about 9 years ago but if you have cheese or chocolate left but no dippers, you’re aloud to ask for more dippers!!! We had the Wisconsin cheddar and the turtle chocolate. 10/10 recommend!

    The Melting Pot - CincinnatiResponded 3 days agoDevon, So happy to hear you and your husband had a great time celebrating with us! Thank you for taking your time to leave us a review. We pride ourselves on supplying you with all the items needed to get full enjoyment of your meal and we happy you were able to take advantage of the extra dippers! Wisconsin Cheddar and the Flaming Turtle are always a hit! We look forward to the next opportunity to serve you. Thank you again, and have a wonderful weekend. Jarred W. -GM

    The Melting Pot is a fun, interactive dining experience but slightly pricy for what you receive. Overall we enjoyed our experience. Although our service was a bit slow and spotty. I would say that I've come before just as a couple and this time with a party of 4 (3 adults and 1 child). I think you get a better value in the amount of food as a couple. For example it seemed like the dessert was the same portion as you would get for 2 people but for 3.5. We ran out of chocolate before we ran out of dippers. But overall it was a good experience. Also it would be have been nice to have the birthday we were celebrating somehow acknowledged more than just a plate with happy birthday written on it. Maybe a special complimentary dipper or something.

    Absolutely amazing experience. Service at this location was excellent from the time we entered the door. I have been to a couple other locations and this has by far been the best. We went late afternoon before the dinner rush which was key. Our kiddos loved it (7,10,13) and the staff went above and beyond to help us celebrate my husbands birthday.

    My husband and I love The Melting Pot! Such a fun dining experience with amazing food and service. Bring a big appetite if you want the full 4-course experience - cheese fondue, salad, oil fondue (for meats and vegetables), and chocolate fondue. If you've never had fondue before, your server will explain everything to you. There are good options for many dietary restrictions (vegetarian, gluten free). The drinks are also excellent - I highly recommend the wine flight, 4 glasses that pair perfectly with each course. It's definitely a pricey restaurant but great for a special occasion.

    Wasn’t expecting it to take 30 minutes for each course. Started at 8pm left at 10pm. The cookie your own meat was interesting. Food overall was good. Something came out to another table once and was a little smoky for a few minutes. Overall good but not great

    The Melting Pot - CincinnatiResponded on September 5, 2022Curt, Very sorry to hear that you experienced such wait times while dining with us on that night. As to the smokiness, there are a few items that as they cook, can make a smell or sound for a short time and I am sorry if that was off-putting during your time with us. Thank you for dining with us and taking the time to tell us about your experience. We would be happy to continue the discussion at cincinnatimelt@live.co m. I hope to hear from you soon.

    Grad dinner celebration for young person. Service outstanding. Server (gonna butcher the spelling) Waouo was personable and enjoyable, attentive, efficient. An “experience” event, 4 with one pot a little busy and limits choices somewhat for folks that eat differently. Overall food was good, sauces just ok. At the price point, the older (paying) folks prefer fine dining, chef prepared a-la-carte, but this was different in a good way, lively and fun. Again, sterling server.

    We were celebrating our anniversary and the food and service were great! The only thing that was not perfect was where we were seated. We were the second couple in the entire restaurant and were sat by the window facing everyone else in a room. It was fine at first as no one else was there, but then it filled up and felt awkward. Since we were celebrating our anniversary, I just thought they would have given us a more cozy spot. Otherwise it was great!
