Love this place but dont like that we can no longer order for one person. Its a lot of food and now we have to pay double. It's too expensive for us now.
We love the food and ambiance. Always fun. The table service is wonderful but we’ve had two experiences when the food came out surprisingly slow. We will still return but knowing to expect a possible 2 hour experience
Server was beyond amazing!
Great meal and service. Something different to do with the kids now that they are older and aren't super picky. Great place to celebrate a birthday!!
They are having major staffing issues. Need to limit how many reservations they are taking cause right now it is just a total cluster.
Absolutely fabulous! Great service and very friendly waiter.
It was a fantastic night for my wife and I, our server was friendly, attentive and fast. All the fondues we got were amazing and the drinks were definitely on point. Loved every second on of it and we will definitely be back.
It took us 3 hrs to finish our meal. We kept having to ask different servers for items, or refills, our food. It was horrible service. We could not locate her. Food was great. The general manager Robin gave us coupons for next time we were there and 50% off our meal to help with our displeasure.
Many visit here to celebrate and event, thus why the hostess asks you when you arrive and are seated. The booths are very high and offer a good deal of privacy. They have a great selection from the bar, and ask what the specials are, usually they are offering a set menu for a fixed price. This is not just for fondue, they also have a healthier grilling option. They can also handle requests for vegetarian and GF. Think your whole meal through, as if you are going to do the chocolate course, leave room!
Our server was nice when she was attending to us, yet that was far and few times in-between. We needed to go to the bar to get drinks as after the first course was served, we did not see Megan for over 1/2 an hour. No checking back to see if the food was OK or if we liked our beverages. Such is the issue with COVID employees, either too busy to attend to each guest in a way that they should, or too new to even know that checking back is required.
We took the family here for a birthday celebration and had a 9:00pm seating. There were very few people in the restaurant but we still had some issues with our server not coming around to check on us very often.
When she did come around, she was good, but at a place like Melting Pot, you should never have to wait and/or ask for a refill for your drink.
Also, they were clearly in shutdown mode. They were cleaning the floors right across from our booth and being fairly noisy with putting things away, etc. I used to work in a restaurant, I get it, they want to go home. But with what we were shelling out for 6 of us, I think a little discretion might have been in order.
All in all we had a good meal, but having been a Melting Pot customer for over 25 years, I've definitely seen the level of service and attentiveness to detail decline. This experience was (unfortunately) no exception.
Server was inexperienced; food was incredible. Nice location and appreciated the senior server when she was there to help guide the newer server who was not knowledgeable. I wish senior server had been more present throughout the meal. Overall, very pleasant experience and great food.
Great as always… service was a little slow, but it was a busy night with homecoming
Service was excellent (our server was Jose). He was pleasant, engaging and attentive to our table. We come to this location once every 6 months or so.
This is the first time the table was sticky and the napkins had holes in them - I think it was a fluke. We will be back.
We visited the Gaithersburg location. It was an okay date night. I felt that they were a little understaffed. I wish our server was more attentive during our dinner. But overall a okay experience.
We haven’t been to Melting Pot in probably 15 years and were so glad we went back! The food was so flavorful and we just had a wonderful night as a family. Service was super slow, but friendly.
Excellent service and food. Great suggestions from the manager! Loved it.
Really good food. Terrible service. At first was told they had run out of cheese for cheese fondue. Then they had no clean glasses for drinks. Then they had no cream puffs for dessert. Asked for more vegetables to dip and after we finished eating he said he was sorry he forgot to bring the vegetables. Very long waits to get our drink order.
Very long waits to get more napkins and cutlery.
This restaurant has a major problem with the service they provide every time we go there!!!!
Service and food were great! We go often and have never been disappointed.
The food was good. It was a lovely experience. We truly loved the service. Our Server (Paul) was outstanding. He is a lovely, kind and knowledgeable young man with an incredible positive attitude.
First time at this location but the wonderful experience contiued. Great food, kind service and a great place to enjoy a unique dining experience.
Delicious food but the dinner took 3 hours. We anticipated a long night, but not that long.
Not great service these days. We arrived a few minutes early for our 8:30 reservation on Saturday. We were seated at our reservation time. Our waitress seemed frazzled, but we placed our drink and cheese order immediately. Our waitress brought waters and disappeared for about 10 minutes before coming back to dump the beer base for our cheese. We were treated to the smell of cooking Budweiser for about 15 minutes and wondering if we should go, before she returned with our drinks at minutes until 9. She got my drink wrong (I order a knob creek rye, Manhattan, up - because sometimes they like to make them in a rocks glass) and instead of double of the knob creek rye, served neat.... if you don't understand my order just ask again...
After preparing our cheese waitress was gone again, and the neighboring waitress took over with getting us waters and another drink.
Don't know we'll be back anytime soon.
Our server Paul was excellent & we had a wonderful time!
This place was so good! The food is delicious, and all of our servers were very friendly and accommodating. My friend and I went for restaurant week, which was a great deal; you could pretty much choose anything from their menu! The strawberry almond salad was not what I was expecting (the menu says mixed greens and goat cheese, but we were served romaine and bleu cheese), but everything else was great. I would totally go back!
I love the Melting Pot but very disappointed this visit
We had an amazing time! It surely was a memorable anniversary. Our server, Alexa, made sure that we were well taken cared of.
The service was horrible.. I asked the waitress why we didn’t receive a birthday plate or balloons as I made sure it was a known fact we were there celebrating a birthday, her response…. I was too busy! The manager Anthony stated well she was busy when I called to complain!! Ridiculous!!
Great night out, things were loud were we sat. But otherwise great night out celebrating a friends birthday.
Very nice atmosphere and service. Food was okay, I liked the desert the most but main course wasn’t very tasty to me.
Service was excellent and the help with decisions was great. Wine and cocktails were delicious. All the courses tasted great. We had not dined here in a while and the combinations were great for each of our dietary needs. Our server Alejo was very helpful and attentive. Made our date night very relaxing and enjoyable.
Always a good time when I come here. It's so unique and fun, and the staff is always amazing.
Server was nice enough. But it was 3.5 hours and I had to ask for more dippers….they were stale and server kept saying they are short staff so he had to go cut it up in back.
It was only 4 of us. Then bill was 30 percent more than it was supposed to be bc computer wasn’t calculating correctly. Good thing I caught it!
It was supposed to be a special treat for my daughters and it just fell flat….sub par.
This location just can’t seem to make it happen.
Had a lovely anniversary meal, but was a little underwhelmed for the $100 price tag. Still a fun experience but maybe less kids in the room next time
I come here every year with my husband for birthdays and Valentine’s Day and it never fails to amaze us! Food always tastes great, Servers are always kind and quick!
When the waiter started off the night asking “would you like what you two had last time?” …when I’ve never been there with this person before, that really set the tone for the night. I asked what he was talking about, and shown a list of what my ex wife and I used to eat many years ago. Yup. Really set the tone.
Food was fine.
Out-of-town family visit
Went for Father’s Day and everyone enjoyed the experience. Great tasting bites and non stop great service.
Good food overall, a little expensive. There did appear to be a lot of “corner” being shouted.
Very expensive for a family of 4 but very fun. This won’t become a regular outing, probably not even once at year at almost $300 for the meal!
