    Our server was fantastic as was the the food. The booths should be a different color as the light yellow looks matted and old even though it isn't

    It was our first time for a Sunday lunch fondue and we enjoyed it even more than dinner. Very relaxed, not crowded but the same great food. Our server, Rachel, was knowledgeable and personable. We’ll be back for a Sunday fondue lunch 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!

    It has been remodeled since my last visit, with more light and open space now. Service was great as usual, and they even made a creme brulee for us that was not on the menu anymore.

    Went for a friends graduation, at her request. One burner per table does not facilitate vegetarians to be inclusive with non-vegetarian diners in the same party. Waiter was friendly, but not seasoned in the presentation aspects of the dining experience. Was reluctant to go to begin with; will not likely return.

    We were there with a couple who are longtime friends and enjoyed being able to share the $35 per person meals where we could share the fondues. Even having a refill of the dessert items with the chocolate fondue was great!

    Tried the Melting Pot for the first time for our anniversary. My wife is gluten free, & they had options for all courses and were very accommodating. For our entree we used the cast iron skillet, but I wish we’d tried one of the other options because the cooking space was limited (only about 1/2 the size of the actual skillet was hot enough to cook quickly). Our waitress brought out a special “Happy Anniversary” plate with dessert & complimentary champagne!

    We had a nice evening. It has been a long time since we had been to the melting pot and enjoyed it very much. Not sure what didn’t feel “as wonderful” as I remembered it being, perhaps the renovations of the building? Idk. It was very good. Just not quite what I remembered of it. It is brighter and more open in the building now so while it was a nice atmosphere it didn’t feel as intimate as it used to. That may be part of it?

    Birthday for our grand daughter . We enjoyed the experience . Cooking our fondue. The servers were busy so to get a refill of water we had to ask twice and finally got it. But other wise food was fresh. Servers were pleasant . The chocolate is awesome . The 4 because of waiting so long for water …

    Delicious food and excellent server. My only complaint is the price. I feel that the price has increased quite a bit while the portion sizes have gotten smaller. Don't get me wrong, I'll return, but definitely less often.

    Went for Father’s Day. It was a new experience for everyone. Probably a better experience just for two as it was overwhelming trying to cook for six people. The meats were seasoned well, nothing was bad. It just took a long time and was a lot of work. We never got a single water refill in the whole three hours. That was less than enjoyable. I don’t think any of us would return. Not a bad experience if you want to try a variety and you don’t really know how to cook yourself. It was just meh. Also need more air conditioning and venting.

    Food taste was excellent, but the portions were smaller than the last visit. We ran out of cheese before half of the dippers were gone. Also, the sharable drinks advertised on the Facebook page were not available.
