Terrible value of cost for 'food' (we had dessert). Terrible service from waiter (hostess and coffee/drink server were gracious and helpful). Would absolutely NEVER recommend The Melting Pot and definitely never recommend this location. Entire restaurant smelled so strongly of garlic that it overpowered our experience with dessert (and we were seated in the furthest booth at back of restaurant by the kitchen). COFFEE FOR $4?? Two small trays of bite size pieces for four people??? No instructions about waiting for the chocolate to warm up??? Silverware was dirty. Cost was nowhere near the quality of food served and amount of food received.

This was our first time at the Melting Pot. It was a great experience. Katie our server was great in answering all of our questions about the menu and gave great recommendations. The food was amazing. I was very impressed on how fresh everything was. Sometimes you get a salad that is made ahead of time. Not here at the Melting Pot. Best experience at a restaurant I have had in years.

Great atmosphere and food. The server was newer than what we are use to and that is the only ding I gave. The team there is excellent and right on time with the cheese, salad, meal and we decided to skip desert

The service was prompt, knowledgeable, and friendly. We were seated immediately (we had reservations). Our server was very helpful as we selected our meal. Our cheese fondue was delicious and our salads fresh and tasty. Our main course included MOJO broth which was a citrus, well seasoned broth. We had various meats and vegetables of superior taste and quality. The sauces took it all "over the top" for us. There was sweet/sour, teriyaki, green goddess, mustard and cocktail sauces. They were yummy! We finished with Yin and Yang white/dark chocolate fondue and it was almost addictive!
We come here a few times a year and are never disappointed!

We enjoyed our visit. We are frequently there for cheese and chocolate. I liked the new option to grill your food rather than boil it (which is why we don’t go for entrees). It was a bit loud and our waiter was soft spoken so I felt like I had to keep asking him to repeat himself most of the time but otherwise good. We had s second waiter who assisted because it was busy and he was great. I know they say in the beginning it's allowed to request more dippers when we still have cheese or chocolate left in the bowl but it always feels so awkward when we do for some reason. I hate having that awkward feeling.

The manager is always so helpful and tentative to the customers and this visit was the same. He is always making sure the customers are taken care of and is even interested in what kind of celebration is taking place.

We will return, for cheese and chocolate again soon.

We went for Endless cheese and chocolate. We were told that we would not be charged for our two-year-old child. We were charged $12. All she ate was a few bites of rice crispies and water to drink. We were not fixed with that. When asked for the charge to be waived it was only waived 50%.

We loved our evening, but our final course, the chocolate fondue, we finished all our dipping stuff and did not receive more for a while. Our remaining chocolate sat getting too hot so by the time the refill of dippers came the chocolate wasn’t good. Which was kind of sad when you’re paying so much for a meal with four people. Other than that it really was a good evening.

The meal was great. We went here for a birthday and selected the Spring Platter $76 Per Couple. It was quite a lot of food and everything was delicious. Our server was very attentive and informative and the manager on duty checked on us several times. We went on a Tuesday so it was not busy. I would come here again.
