Overall experience was good. Ordered drinks at the bar while we waited. They called us for our table before our drinks were ready. Said they would bring over to us, but they forgot to bring the drinks to our table. Very kind about it and covered the drinks (we did not ask for that). Food was good, dessert is delicious! Double date deal was ok if you liked exactly what is included, but after all our upcharges to make changes, I think the Big night out would have been a better value for us to get what we wanted. There was a large party next to us that was a handful and loud (no fault to MP), but we felt bad for their waiter!

My husband and I celebrated our wedding anniversary at The Melting Pot. This was also our first time to dine at this restaurant. What a lovely experience! Our server was wonderful. She even gave us an anniversary card and champagne for a toast! The food and wine were amazing! We will definitely be going back again. I highly recommend this restaurant!

It was a great experience, though it is expensive it's fully worth the price. My waiter Sean was very nice and knowledgeable, we got sat just before a very large party and he had both tables. He still was able to check one us regularly which was very nice. I definitely plan on coming back. I recommend this to anyone who wants to go somewhere different, it's a very nice a romantic restaurant but very friendly and fun

Wheel of the Melting Pot. We go there pretty much on all of our anniversaries. We've always been extremely happy. The only thing this time. Was we had purchased the lovers lane package. We thought we were getting a framed picture and a bottle of champagne. But we did not receive those.

Excellent table service. The bar was a kinda slow with drinks but not terrible. The table next to us was disturbingly loud and annoying but left shortly after we were seated. The entire staff was very helpful & friendly. It’s maybe a little pricy but we enjoy it enough that it’s no big deal. Overall a very pleasant experience.

We have long been fans of the Melting Pot, but this was our first time at the Cincinnati location. The service was above and beyond, and especially helpful and conscientious with our food allergy concerns. I had no idea there were such extensive gluten free options at Melting Pot! We were able to relax and enjoy our meal. Once we left we realized that the restaurant had been closed for almost an hour at that point - and we had no idea! We weren't rushed and our server was even offering additional dippers to finish our chocolate before we left. I'm sorry we were just passing through that night because if we lived in the area we'd definitely return!

We went to The Melting Pot the other day to celebrate a special occasion and it was wonderful. We've been to this location quite a few times and it has never disappointed. Although it can be an expensive place to eat (depending on what you decide to get), it's worth it for the great food, service and atmosphere.
