Having lived in Switzerland we were very familiar with fondue in all the different styles. This was very well done and the traditional Swiss cheese fondue was very authentic in it's flavor. I liked how it was prepared at the table and the salads were delicious.
My only reservation was the prices. We went for 'restaurant week’, expecting greater value for money, and after checking out the price of the special vrs the regular price, it was cheaper to go for the regular! I did find the prices high. If you want to take your whole family for an outing, expect to come out with a pretty hefty bill. I am not sure if I will go there again, just for that reason.
That said, if you are prepared to pay, the food was excellent and the atmosphere gr
Our experience here was excellent. The food was outstanding. The service could have been a little quicker; we had to wait for approximately 35-40 minutes for our first course to be served. The remainder of the meal came to us in a timely fashion.
Our server Phillip was very helpful and a great server. Always have a great time at The Melting Pot when I go.
Fondue is a tasty meal and fun activity rolled into one. Melting Pot has been a family leisurely special occasion meal favorite for years. Quality food, convenient location, excellent service and intimate atmosphere keep us returning. Attentive staff make sure your glasses are full and you don't run out of dippers or condiments.
Menu is very confusing. Would probably just come back for desert and not dinner.
We were there for our son's birthday, just loved it. Food was great, waiter was terrific including the one training.
Food was outstanding and plentiful
Nice atmosphere, good food, great service!!
Great food and service. Only compliant is that it always seems cold in the restaurant and the woman talking loudly was very off-putting in such an intimate environment.
Our experience at The Melting Pot was amazing. Our server was awesome, and she had some great food suggestions. I definitely recommend to block out about 3 hours and just go and enjoy all of the flavors!
Awesome food, decent price! Great place for a birthday or anniversary!
Friendly service, quiet ambiance, romantic and delicious. Great way to spend a birthday or special occasion.
I came with a group of 7 for dessert only, which is always great if you want a chocolate fix. They seated us in the large table section and the air-conditioning was blasting and very cold. We asked them to turn that down with very little success. However, overall, I would say the service and food were great.
We enjoyed the food and ambiance at the Melting Pot, but we felt it was very overpriced. I'd recommend this place if you are celebrating a special romantic occasion and if you're patient enought to cook your own food.
The Melting Pot is a dinning adventure, experience and a mix of great food, great drinks and a great time. It’s has the perfect atmosphere for a personal time for a couple, as well as a group activity. It was a great time.
Arrived after 9:00pm. Host, Waitress, and Manager were very helpful, friendly, and prompt. They let us linger over our meal which was quite nice.
FABULOUS SERVICE: In Feb 2011 I took my family (a party of 6 people) to the Melting Pot and the service was horrible. Water glasses and drink glasses remained empty after several trips to the table by the wait staff and management. It took almost 15 minutes to get my bill. My wife wrote the company and we received a gift certificate in the mail. With three children, Date Night is greatly appreciated so we took a chance. Our waitress (Tara) had been working there a month and knew how to make a customer feel special. Drinks where quick, food was great and the service was impeccable. We WILL go back for our next special occasion!!!!!!
This is absolutely one of the best ways to dine. The food was excellent as was the service, and the Banana Foster was to die for. Overall a wonderful experience.
Great experience- loads of fun and good food. Mike was our server and he did a great job.
On your site we were asked if there was a special occasion which I did put there was, however that was not recognized by the waiter or any staff.
Wonderful service, great food, and a very enjoyable experience. We were dining with our autistic daughter, who is very sensitive to noise and crowds. We were given one of the circular tables in the back of a section that left us in our own little world -- perfect! Our server was attentive, the food was great, and we all had a lot of fun.
Our server was great...Food was ok; recommend going there primarily for dessert/drinks...too many noisy people, esp. those sitting next to us...I think they had too much to drink because they got louder with every passing minute, ugh... ppl wore shorts, flip flops, ball caps, really?! How is that business causal? Don't recommend for a romantic dinner...somewhat kid friendly if 12 and over...8 yro liked to cook, but not eat the food. The resturant did a nice job of wishing my dauther a happy 20th birthday with a card and some extra pound cake with dessert. Perhaps I'll try the one in Annapolis; maybe I'll have better luck....So far, the resturants in Tampa and Tallahassee still have my vote...
What an amazing night! A fun way to eat and enjoy the company if friends. The only complaint was that it was a little dark, but otherwise it was pure perfection!!
We went for the Flying Dog dinner and had an absolutely wonderful time!
Excellent Service, Great food. Wait staff really try to make the experience enjoyable and seem concerned aboiut each diner.
Lots of fun and great for special outing -- we really enjoyed it! Very nice service too.
It was an amazing experience! We loved the food, service, and style of the restaurant! It was very quiet, although the music was a little loud at the beginning. It was kind of dark, so sometimes it was hard to read the menu. But the cheese, Coq au Vin, and chocolate was extremely tasty. The service was also wonderful- our waitress talked to us and was very kind and explained everything very clearly to us. This restaurant is very unique because it has fondues (very tasty and formal).
The resteraunt was warm, cozy and inviting, an atmosphere that works equally well for a romantinc night out or a causal family get together. The layout offers privacy and keeps the noise level down. The service was outstanding. An evening at the Melting Pot is an experience enjoyed equally by young and old alike.
Although at first all of the choices seem overwhelming, the server really helped us understand the complete "meals". High quality ingredients and great service made a very enjoyable, fun and extremely delicious meal.
Melting Pot has such a wonderful, relaxing atmosphere that I find myself going there again and again. The food is excellent and the service outstanding. The perfect place for a special occasion or romantic evening!
Diedra and Daniel are terrific! Great food, terrific service, enjoyable all the way around!
I just cannot say enough about how wonderful our dinner tonight was. From the quick and sweet hostess who sat us, to the absolute gem of a server, to the WONDERFUL manager, everyone just went out of their way to make our night.
We got seated quick, our waitress got our drinks super fast, and was so nice. Our food came so quick, and when I realized I had forgotten to ask for my meat to not be coated in teriyaki (my mistake) she was super quick to change it with a big smile. Our dessert was perfect as always, and the manager was the nicest guy. We got a souvenier picture that was so sweet, and when it came time for the check the manager had given us a discount because we were celebrating my off week from chemotherapy. AAAAAA+ all aroun
If people in your group want both cheese and meat as entree, make sure to request a table with two burners.
I was there for the Teacher Appreciation Night, for the second year in a row! The server was also an MCPS teacher. He was delightful to interact with. The food was absolutely delicious. We had an amazing time! We can't wait until next year to do it again. It was truly wonderful to be recognized by a restaurant for what we do. A great place for a whole group or just two!! :)
First time there for me and I loved it can't wait to go back ...Our waiter was awesome and food was great :)
We had a very romantic birthday dinner for two. Our waiter was adorable and explained everything to us since the Melting Pot is quite a different dining experience. It was really fun, especially the dessert!
Air conditioning broke down on 98 degree day. No windows in Melting Pot restaurants. This place is all about romantic atmosphere. They should still have windows!
The service and staff were excellent. I felt sorry for them having to work in long sleeve shirts with no A.C.
My girlfriend and I went to dinner at 5pm. It was very warm outside and the air conditioning was just repaired upon our arrival. However it only got hotter as the night progressed. The manager did not make any concessions (free dessert or drinks) to our bill at all and that would have been much appreciated since the ambiance was VERY uncomfortable!
My boyfriend and I went to The Melting Pot for our 7th year anniversary. We had such a special time. It was so private and so much fun. We were there for 2 hours and 40 minutes and didn't even realize it. The food is fantastic and desert was out of this world delicious! We had abetter time than when we went to The Capitol Grille in Washington DC. The service was also excellent. Best place ever!
The food was delicious, as always. The service was incredible. I will return soon!
