This was a fun experience but I think the price is a little expensive for the quality & taste of the food. We did 4-course meal. I will probably get desert (chocolate fondue) only if I visit again next time.

I was so excited to find out that The Melting Pot was offering endless cheese for one night. It is always my favorite part of dining out here is the cheese and hate when it is all gone. I am a teacher and even though it was a school night, I couldn't pass up endless cheese and dessert. A teacher friend of mine came along. She'd never been to The Melting Pot before, but she loved it so much, she wants to plan a date night for her husband. I sure hope that the Melting Pot will offer these endless cheese nights more often.

The server, Chanade, was great! However, the cheeses sucked. Everything has an alcohol base. If your palette isn’t used to that, it’s gross. The only good part is the meats and sauces. This place is definitely not for those who have picky palettes.

Staff was exceptional. Manager on duty wasn’t as friendly. His demeanor was uninviting. We missed our reservation time and wasn’t able to call and cancel in time.. I called when I was free to reschedule in which we were accommodated but upon arriving at the restaurant we weren’t greeted well. We are still paying patrons.

Our dinner at the Duluth Melting Pot was phenomenal. When I put our reservation in I asked for a two burner table and we were seated at a one burner table. Before we even got our drinks a manager came over and moved us to a two burner table. We didn’t ask to be moved, they just moved us. Then we ordered and were eating our cheese course and one of the bowls fell into the fondue pot. This has never happened to us before, so we were not really sure what to do. Before we could even think of how to get it up, another manager saw what happened and immediately took away that pot and made us a fresh pot of cheese. These two instances just show how much effort the staff puts into making sure the customers are happy and have a great experience; thank you Duluth Melting Pot!

We are repeat visitors to the Melting Pot in Duluth. My Daughters and I were celebrating a milestone Birthday and chose the Melting Pot, not only because we enjoy the fondue experience but also for the quiet atmosphere. We were looking for an opportunity to enjoy a unique dining experience as well as spend some quality time together. We had a wonderful 4 course meal that spanned over 2-1/2 hrs so we had plenty of time to converse and enjoy each others company. We went on a weeknight so the restaurant wasn't overly crowded and we never felt rushed to vacate our table so the next patron could step in. I will say that there have been some minor changes over the years that I'm sure were made to help keep cost to a more reasonable level but they were not significant enough that it impacted our experience. I would recommend The Melting Pot in Duluth for anyone celebrating a special occasion where they prefer a quieter atmosphere and don't want to be rushed. Unless you are going just for the dessert, the entire experience is typically 1-1/2 to 2 hrs.

Staff and management were wonderful. We had multiple delays and they adjusted our reservation. The table next to us became a bit boisterous (not to the point we wanted to complain, *just* at the limit where that might have been needed) and the manager apologized and comped us some extras for desert. That was not at all necessary but was greatly appreciated!

The melting pot used to be a place I considered as a "special occasion- once a year splurge" location. I don't know what changed, but now people seem to go all the time, dressed very informally and being rude when they can't get a table right away without a reservation. This place is also now filled with loud young teens stuck to their phones, forever in selfie mode. I mean this place is not cheap! This new frequent clientele is making this place lose its once lovely ambience. I'm glad they are getting business, but I don't consider it a very romantic spot anymore. I was cautious to come to this location because our last experience at a different one was absolutely terrible. Luckily this location is still good, and is the only decent one left out of all the melting pots in my opinion, but it's on the edge. We requested a more private table for two, but the hoards of loud families and teens were pretty loud and obnoxious, plus the pot/stove was oddly very far out of reach for both of us. The food is still great, but they have heavily cut down the proportions from what they used to be, they even charge extra now if you want more dippers for the dessert which is disappointing. The waiter was great, but again the staff always seems like they are limited and thus rushed and stressed running from one table to another. Towards the middle/end of our dinner we definitely felt like we were being hurried out. Overall, it was a nice night out, I just worry about the future of melting pot.

We had never been to the melting pot before and did not know what to expect, but the experience was amazing!!! We were celebrating our 20 wedding anniversary and had a larger budget than normal date. I would have to say it was worth every penny!! Our server named Christina was EXCELLENT! She was very helpful, enthusiastic and attentive, and the manager on duty came around and checked on us a couple of times. We were WELL taken care of ! I have already recommended the melting pot to several of my coworkers and friends.

This was our first time there. We we beginners as far as the fondue experience and cooking styles. But our waiter, whom I struggle to remember (Javier?) was very helpful to our group of five. We got into the groove and enjoyed our time together.

My suggestion would be to change the table layout for groups. In a booth with 5 we were on top of each other. I was in the middle on one side and it was frustrating. Each person on my sides reaching over me as we had two different pots the table was using. They bring so much to the table there is just no room. I had to keep moving my drink out of the way. That all could go away with table layout changes.....I mean fondue is an experience and an expensive one at that for a family of five.

Overall we were celebrating an accomplishment of our teenagers and for them it was fun. That's all that matters. So we we Happy.

Seated our party of 6 promptly. We had a reservation. The booth would have seated 4 comfortably, was designed for 5, and we crammed 6 people into it. It was a packed house so they could not relocate us. Service was relatively poor (30 minutes to get drink order, 45 minutes for salads, empty glasses, table was absolutely cramped). This was more of an anomaly as I have dined at this location probably 10 times and it is usually much better. Food was good as always. It took us 3 hours to eat and that was on the restaurant and not us lingering. ~$150 for 3 glasses of wine, and 2 four course dinners between my wife and I. Lackluster experience tonight, but please give them a chance as I have had more positive experiences there than this negative one.

I had been to The Melting Pot in Boca Raton, FL 20 years ago. Prior to that in Coral Springs, FL 25 years ago. It all came back to me why I don't go there. I guess if your looking for something totally different, this could be your kind of place. I just prefer to not have to cook my own food when I dine out. I only went there to appease my adoring wife who enjoys fondue. For the record, she did enjoy her meal but would have preferred a different broth. (she ordered the coc au vin) I had the wedge salad...huge let down & very poorly done. They toss two pieces of precooked bacon on the wedge, some thin ranch dressing and three slices of tomato. the cheese fondue was good, but clearly not worth the $19.00 for 4 oz of cheese, 1/2 an apple, a cup of stale bread, 3 cherry tomatoes, two pieces of par cooked broccoli & the pieces of carrot.

I understand a meal like this is about the experience. If you like the experience of eating in a dining room that smelled like heavy grease, you will love this place.

The manager of the restaurant seemed pleasant enough. The server was very knowledgeable, clear, concise and pleasant as well. All in all, if your looking for a different food experience, don't mind touching raw meat as you eat this could be the place for you. I can't imagine it would be anyones "goto" place to dine, but it's certainly worth trying at least once. I have been told I am overly critical and a food snob, so this review is worth what you paid for it.

We went with our kids on Sat night. I didn't like the open table they gave us. It was open to another table behind us and there was no privacy as people constantly walked by us. It was also very loud and when our server and the adjoining server were talking at once it was very hard to hear. That being said, the food was great and the server was also very attentive. We would come back but not if we had to sit in that seat again. It's very expensive to not have a private table.

My husband just came back from his work out of town so we celebrated Valentine’s Day a few days later. We had a bottle of Greystone Merlot and the Big Night Out- we were so stuffed we could have rolled out of there, but everything was delicious. Our waiter Sung was amazing and he even taught me how to make a stuffed tempura mushroom- i have been to melting pot numerous times since 2002 and he is the first waiter who taught me something and was super efficient and upbeat. we had a wonderful time.
