Great B-Day dinner with my wife. They had a rose at the table before we arrived; this is one on my wife’s favorite restaurants in Columbus. As expected the food and service was above average.

To make a table decide on 1 cheese & chocolate, yet be charged twice/per person for it? Complete rip off. Service & food was great, but won’t be returning.

The Cheese and Chocolate Fondue were great. The Fondue with the classic meat was ok but not great. Looking at the price and the quality of the condiments it was overpriced. Drinks and Service was great. Ambiance was ok due to dark light and pretty sterile atmosphere.

We absolutely love this place. The food is absolutely delicious. Definitely get the four course meal - it is an amazing value AND you do not leave hungry :) The duck is a must get in your entree!

Always great but for a Thursday night with not a lot of tables we were sort of an afterthought. Perhaps timing was just off.

Usually I love Melting Pot but this time was a bit frustrating. We had made reservations due to it being Father's day. It took 30min to get drinks. We assumed cheese was being prepped but apparently waiter had an emergency and had to leave. Instead of telling us, they left us sitting waiting for a waiter to start their shift. The new waiter was amazing, went above and beyond to make our dining experience good. They need asked for a different payment bc they didn't want to run it by hand. Usually were there 2ish hours, we were there for over 3hrs.

We loved getting to create our own entrees! We each got to pick 3 or 4 meats, which was a fun experience. It let us try something on someone else's plate (Garlic Pepper Sirloin for example). The food was great as always, and we love this place. Only thing I'd like is slightly bigger vessels for the batter and sauces - for 4 people it was a tiny amount. Also, the zucchini was hard to keep on the forks being such thin slices (I'd suggest cutting them into chunks which might be easier), and I really missed the broccoli!! I hope they bring that back. All in all though, we had a great time as we always do!

I've been to Melting Pot in various cities upwards of 30 times. My most recent trip to Columbus was for my sister's 40th birthday which was mentioned in the reservation. When our waitress asked us if we were celebrating anything I responded that it was my sister's 40th birthday. She responded with "that's nice." I was kinda bummed that nothing was done for her or offered for me to purchase for her. The Troy, MI location always follows thru on your celebration details.

We had a party of 4 and we ran out of both cheese and chocolate. The portions need to be larger to accommodate the servings; otherwise the food was very good

This is great place to eat if you don't care about money. But, seriously, you cook your own food, and the cost for the amount of food you get is pretty ridiculous. The atmosphere was good, and it's a fun concept, but it could be a LOT cheaper. Also, I had to ask my server several questions. Even though they asked if I had been there before and I explained it had been several years, I had to ask about cooking times and the like. No mention of the danger of raw chicken on the wrong fork or anything.

Not the best experience, by far. Food is over priced and the cocktails are watered down. The atmosphere was nice and intimate but we won't be back. Our check was messed up also, charging me $30 more than they were supposed to. Just not a great experience.

Food was good. Wish the waitress had advised against the cheese with the high wine content when we ordered it, needed to change our order.
The chocolate portion for the desert (favorite part) was way too small.
Overall, quite expensive..
