I had to ask for my drink several times, dippers I asked for were never given, and the wait between courses was way too long. I have also noticed the the portion sizes keep getting smaller and smaller, every time I come.

The Quattro Formaggio had a smooth balance among cheese, wine and pesto, which was great for both bread and apples. The House and Caprese salads had wide variety of ingredients as usual. The Coq Au Vin cooking style base enriched the seasonings into red wine. The Premium Filet Mignon, Teriyaki-Marinated Steak, Herb-Crusted Chicken Breast, Atlantic Salmon, and Shrimp were all great to cook on. We were not a fan of Wild Mushroom Pasta into fondue. The Flaming Turtle was truly a signature item for desserts. We enjoyed fire flame as served, and took video while it was going on. Both fruits and sweets were fun to be dipped and bite on. The server Anthony was very friendly, patient and professional.

We were seated right away but was told they were out of several times. Took 20 minutes to get drinks another 20 minutes for salads; it went downhill from there. No real napkins, had to ask several times for utensils, drinks. 4 HOURS later we paid and left. We have been to this location many times and have never had this POOR level of service. Did not see many employees. I think the wait staff was extremely shorthanded. Manager was fantastic in trying to apologize for the bad experience and comped some of the check but not sure we can trust going back anytime soon. Disappointing

There was supposed to be a rose and sparkling cider toast included, which were not received. He and his girlfriend loved the food and the experience, but I'm disappointed that nice extras were promised and not delivered--especially for a price that is not bashful. I hope they didn't take advantage of them, because they're teenagers.

This time things had changed a little -which was pleasant to see. However, they should tell folks in advance that there will be a special menu for holidays. Also, waitress was nice, but she lacked customer service. She spoke fast, never came back to fill up water, had to ask another server for help. Finally, at the end after the main course- which ALWAYS happens the server/waitress is no where to be found... someone has to train the staff on customer service- it may actually help their tips!

The Melting Pot is the premiere place to enjoy this treat. They offer several varieties of cheese and chocolate fondues, plus meat, fish, and veggie entrees cooked in a ample choice of oils and other media. The service is attentive and helpful; the servers are always ready to explain the fondue process and options to newcomers. The ambiance is quiet; each booth is somewhat isolated from others, creating a cozy and romantic atmosphere. All this pleasure is somewhat pricey, but well worth it both for "just a night out" but especially for special occasions.

The portions are around half what they used to be and the price has gone up dramatically. This most recent visit we were sat at a table that was uncomfortable for our family (my son couldn't reach the pot because his chair was so far away), but the host staff refused to reseat us in a more comfortable table, even though they had tables available. The interior of the building is dated and in need of serious updating and upkeep. The seats at our table were ripped and the restaurant appears to be in poor shape visibly (scuffs on walls, bench seating, etc). For the price we paid, it definitely was not worth what we received.

There was no host when we got there, so we had to walk to find someone to seat us for our reservation. They were also out of half the meats, so we were just stuck with 2/4. The server was really great though. The food is okay, not bad not amazing.
