We came for our anniversary. We love the restaurant. We would have preferred to sit in a booth for more private seating, but we loved the food and service was great!
Highly recommend!!

Decided same day to book a reservation at the Melting Pot for an impromptu date night. We were greeted immediately and pleasantly seated by the host. Our server George was very attentive. We love going to the Melting Pot and enjoying the multiple courses offered and spending a couple hours out together. Will definitely visit again!

Wonderful restaurant for special occasions. The 4 course meal takes a while to complete providing for a great time spent together. Service is excellent. All staff is very attentive. Good choices for the main meal including vegetarian, etc. This was my 3rd time dining at this location of the Melting Pot. Will come back again!

First time here and the restaurant it self is beautiful and clean, the person who seated us was nice and checked in on us, and our server was very knowledgeable and gave us good recommendation as far as what to order. For the 4 course meal that they have it's perfect for a light conversation food with drinks, it can also be shared between 2-3 people and it was good. I was surprised that they won't seat you unless all your party are together but I'm sure there is a good reason for it, but overall the service and food was great.

Scores would have been higher if my check would have reflected the advertised discount that I requested in my reservation. I would suggest that if you have a discount for a certain date and time, that you don't hide it. If you embrace the discount; and even tell customers about it when they happen to be ordering it, there is a good chance that they might add on other items, including drinks or become more frequent customers. The drinks here are very/very good. It was disappointing to get charged the full price when you are expecting the discount with the waiter looking at you smiling knowing there is a discount. Not cool.

Melissa was amazing!! She knew the menu and had solid recommendations. I enjoyed the professionalism from both her and the other staff. I hadn't been there in years and it was my fiance's first time there, she was able to help us make the most of our dinner experience by breaking down the menu and helping us choose the best food for us. We will definitely be back!

We had a great time at The Melting Pot, as we always do! The food is amazing--even the salads, which feature house-made dressings. The four-course menu was delicious and more than enough food to get you full. I'd definitely recommend this restaurant to anybody!

Just can’t be disgruntled cooking you own meats served raw at the table. I love this place. The curry sauce is a treasure. The mojo pot is the best. I LOVE the alpine cheese with the brawn bran bread.

My Grandkids love this place. I have been bringing them since they were very small. They are 13 & 15 now and still love it.

Just wish it were less expensive so we could come more often! Usually only make it about once a year.
