    We had never been to Melting Pot before and it amazing. We had the 5 course experience and it was definitely worth it. Our server Mackenzie was wonderful. She was super knowledgeable about what to recommend and made the experience even better. We will definitely be returning.

    We love the Melting Pot, it is so delicious and the service is usually amazing. And our server was as sweet as and personable as they come. Buuuut we spent a lot of time waiting, and I don't mean that in I expected it to be a quick meal--I know it's not. We got our cheese and needed more dippers for it and waited a good 20 minutes before anyone checked on us to see if we needed anything. We waited at least that long for our chocolate as well. We are usually there for a 4 course meal 2 hours, this night it was almost 3 (2 hours 45 mins). We'll still be back (though probably not Valentine's Day weekend) but it was a long night .

    On February 14,2024 at 9:45 pm I arrived at the cincy location. When we arrived it was packed. So we knew automatically there was a wait. So reservations were for 10pm we check in they tell us it’s us a little wait don’t worry we will have you seated shortly. So we sit and as we sit it is getting more packed more people coming in than people leaving I look at the clock it’s 10 pm so now I’m waiting to be called they come out at 10:15 saying there is a little bit of a wait we will get you seated mind you this is there closing time so everyone ready to go home who works here and the people still have to be seated people not leaving this is a mess it’s 10:30 and we still have not been seated so at this point I’m like what’s going on in my head but I’m patiently waiting for 10:45 they started seating people. At 11pm we were seated it’s saddens me because on Valentine’s Day we supposed to experience the best and this was the worst part of the night so we’re seated now there rushing to give us a presentation mind you this our first time at the melting pot so everything was good with service he was a gentleman and he was over and beyond in service but the food was horrible I was disappointed in the quality of food it was like it was old or had been sitting out all day then the food just wasn’t hot at all the dessert was old the chocolate tasted old like it was from a barrel or something old but overall the service was good the manager never came to check on us and it was a lot of unhappy people theI gave one couple $75 in certificates cause they didn’t like it either but we didn’t receive any comp but for the drink that was nasty the billionaire drink was horrible, this was a bad experience I wouldn’t recommend this in the future not this location anyway it smells old when you walk in the door. For 200$ I could have went to Jeff Ruby.

    The restaurant was overbooked, staff were overwhelmed! Even though we had a reservation and got there ahead of time, we had to wait about 40 minutes to be seated! The price was too expensive for the quality and freshness of the food. The service was VERY slow (overwhelmed staff again) Overall, it was not a pleasant experience unlike the last time we were there. The nicest thing was how polite and professional the staff were even though they had been put under immense pressure not to turn away anyone!
    The Melting Pot - CincinnatiResponded on February 16, 2024
    RaminK, I am very sorry to hear about your experience and in no way will I attempt to make excuses for what happened. I understand I can't take back the less than satisfactory experience you had with us. What I hope to offer is a path back to you dining with us and one where we are able to take care of things to make that happen. Please reach out to me to discuss things further at 513-530-5501 ext 3 or cincinnatimelt@live.co m If you would like for me to send Dip Certificates which can be used towards another meal or broken up over multiple visits I would be more than happy to do that. Again, I want you to know that we are dedicated to making it right when we drop the ball the way we did with you all on such a special day. I hope to hear from you soon. Thank you, Jarred Wilkins GM

    We drove 45 minutes to the melting pot because I had received an email for 6 free chocolate covered strawberries with purchase; the reservation link didn’t work for those so I tried calling multiple evenings ahead of time with no answer. We decided to just go but they said they didn’t have any extras - he said he’d put in for the next day but 45 mins each way is a lot for 6 free strawberries. Server and food were great otherwise but customer service could use some improvement.

    Food was amazing as always! However, the cheese and chocolate came out kind of luke and we had to wait until it warmed up more before partaking, but still delicious! We had to wait on drinks for awhile, but they were training, however it probably took them 20 min to get out cocktails to our table. They apologized and the rest of the service was great! I'll never not recommend them!

    I wish I could give our experience more than 5 stars. The Thursdate deal was AMAZING! It was such a great deal and the rose petals on the table were so cute! Sean took great care of us and was such a delight to interact with. We told him it was our 6 year anniversary and he ended up bringing us something a little extra to celebrate! We were beyond full and so happy with how everything tasted and how it went overall. I might just celebrate everything here!

    Our waiter (Jameson) was wonderful and the food tasted great. The only negative we encountered was the table near us put an iPad on full volume to entertain their kids. When you dine at a place like this you should be able to expect they wouldn’t allow this.

    This place is not at all a date night venue. Loud, lots of kids, and seating is very close together. The shrimp smelled less than fresh when brought to the table which killed my appetite. We won’t be back! Also, way over priced.

We had not been in yet in 2024 and I realized last evening that I not only missed the food, but also staff that we hadn't seen for a while. We will be back soon!
