Food and service were both amazing as usual. The manager came and checked on us to make sure everything was ok. It’s always so nice and quiet and you can tell the staff is well trained and very friendly.

1st time at the Meting Pot and I really enjoyed it. You get a lot of food but it is expensive. Not knowing what to expect the waitress wasn’t that thorough in explaining . They have fondue as appetizers and dessert which are easy and fun. I didn’t realize the entree you had to cook yourself and then she asked how do you want to cook it? LOL I said what are talking about? So they give you raw food and you have to cook it yourself. All in all it was fun and amusing. Would be great to impress a date. Us old foggies just had some laughs.

Waiter was really slow servicing our table. Had to request someone to get him twice for requests. Left us with our dirty dishes on the table for 20 plus minutes. He had just visited us prior to this and could easily see we were almost finished eating.

Our first dine-in meal since March. The food and service was great as always. Every other table was blocked off to promote distancing. All staff wore masks. It was nice to dine in and feel comfortable doing it.

Food was good as always. Waitress was a little spacey and took too long to bring requested items. Wasn’t as high end as other branches we’ve been to.

We went back there after using a Groupon at a previous reservation. We felt like they gave us more cheese and dessert than this time. The last time we came was a different experience than this one. The ambiance was nice and the service was impeccable, but the value was not there. We left hungry for a table of 4 with a high bill.

This was our first time and felt intimidated by the whole concept. The server was very friendly and helpful. She explained the different cooking styles. I advised of my husband's allergies and she immediately went to speak with the kitchen to find it what he could or couldn't have. We would definitely return.

Very unassuming building from the outside but a very romantic and private place on the inside. We've been there before but it seems as if they've gotten better. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience!

Now the reason for 4 out of 5 stars. The bartender basically ignored us for about 10 mins and it was only two other couples at the bar. We were going to leave but really wanted to eat there. The bartender also touched everything even after coughing in his hands multiple times. Although we had great time, things like that are the reason why we'll minimize eating out.

Food's not really my taste, and they sat us by the bar which made it less private for a valentines date. Waiter was awesome. The price was wayy more than anticipated.

Enjoyed a lovely evening out with my daughters! We have enjoyed visiting several times in the past and our recent evening was no exception. Be prepared to spend some time if having the four course meal. This visit we selected the spinach/artichoke cheese fondue to start which was served with bread, apples, celery, carrots, and chips for dipping. We were offered more "dippers" if needed but we had plenty. The salads were delicious and fresh. Each of us chose the classic which consisted of beef, chicken, pork, and shrimp for cooking in the broth we chose. Portions were a good size so we ended up taking some cooked meat items to go. By this time we were very full but still very much enjoyed the bananas foster fondue which came with ample portions of items to dip. As always, the service was fantastuc and the manager checked on us periodically.

An easy to use online reservation & special occasion selection menu. While being seated at the restaurant, my wife was totally surprised when she saw roses on our table. During our meal, a staff member approached our table & offered to take a photo, we willingly complied. Then while waiting for the final awesome desert course, the manager came over to our table. He surprised my wife with the picture taken earlier mounted in a nice picture frame along with a box of six huge chocolate strawberries. Our dinner food was excellent and the staff made her birthday dinner a pleasant experience.

Wait staff didn’t check in frequently. Lots of long waits for food and didn’t ask for extra dippers. Also dropped olives on my friend and didn’t apologize or clean up or bring replacement olives. Food was good, as I expect, but service left lots to be desired this time.
