We had 12 people for a birthday. The restaurant and servers did a great job and everyone left happy and stuffed. The food is delicious and the ambiance is delightful for talking and connecting to family and friends. Always some sticker shock at the end so just be prepared. It is not a discount chain but a nice restaurant so know before you go! You will really enjoy yourself and the food!

This is a place that is for special occasions, and ones that you have saved some money for too. The food is amazing, but you may break your wallet. I suggest waiting for a special they have, then visiting the restaurant.

Even with special offers/events it is an expensive place to eat. Still undecided if it is worth it but as a first time dining experience or special occasion, I would recommend. Unfortunately, due to the expense I cannot recommend for large families. Also, I do not appreciate mandatory 20% tipping.

Went for my daughters birthday/college graduation celebration. The first course of cheese was the best . All of it was interesting, however, it was a once in a lifetime experience for me because of the expense. 3 of us did the 4 course experience. 2 of us had a mixed drink and the bill was over $200. Very un-affordable for most regular people.

Scott was a great waiter, very attentive and knowledgeable about ingredients. We had a party of four and we all opted for the four course meal for $29 a person which is a great deal. Our meal included our choice of cheese, salad, teriyaki sirloin, herb chicken, pot sticker, white shrimp, and our choice of chocolate. Overall great experience and one of our favorite places to dine.

Went with friends for my birthday and it was very enjoyable! Our waiter was good with his recommendations, and instructions. He also let us know about the app for the timer to cook the food. Everything was fresh and tasted amazing. We will absolutely dine here again.

I enjoy the Melting Pot as it is well-run and has good service. I don't go very often because the prices are extremely high and it just doesn't fit into a regular night out budget.

Amazing service but then again Melting Pot never disappoints. Would highly recommend to anyone whether a group or couple looking for a relaxing night out. The manager at this establishment was actively engaged with his customers as well to make sure the experience was delightful. We really enjoyed the evening! Tip: Make a reservation, we did and all went smooth, they get super busy!

We seemed to be a stretch for our server. Her section was in the back and we felt forgotten about. The manager seemed extremely overwhelmed and lost( he needs more training!)

The hostess in a light pink shirt was incredibly rude and we waited until 6:30 to be seated... Our reservation was at 6:00. Luckily, our server Adam was great and when we were finally seated, really enjoyed our meal.

I don't feel the value is worth it for the 4 course meal. There were 11 in our party, and we had only a few pieces of broccoli and red potatoes with our entrees. There were many mushrooms, whole and caps. Most folks don't care for mushrooms to that degree. I feel the veggie bowls are filled with the least expensive vegetables to save money. For the dessert course, we received MANY rice Krispy squares, which only kids tend to prefer and 3 squares of pound cake. That's ridiculous!! I should not have to ask everytime for additional portions. The strawberries should be whole not quartered. The cost of this meal was 42.99 and it was NOT worth it. I probably won't be visiting another Melting Pot anytime soon.

Our group was there for a mother/daughter dinner and we had a wonderful evening! Our server, Melissa, was excellent and a lot of fun! The dining experience was well paced and allowed us plenty of time to enjoy great conversation. The Melting Pot is great for special occasions, dates, and groups. We will definitely return!

This was our 1st time dining at the melting pot. We made reservations for 2 adults, 2 kids. I was happy to learn it was kid friendly. The food was ok but the service was so slow. We spent 2 hours waiting and dining on food that comes raw to the table. It's hard to say why raw food would take so long to make it to the table since it involves no work on their part. We sprung for a bottle of wine which was gone by the time the food came.
