I really enjoyed the dining section for two, made our anniversary cozy and intimate. Our server was also fantastic!
It was the perfect place for a few families to get together for Fathers' Day. We had a long table, four different fondue pots and a great time!
This place was horrendous. I took my two girls for Father's Day. We got a cheese fondue and a chocolate one. The Alpine Cheese, supposedly their specialty, tasted awful and I couldn't eat it. They offered to bring me something else, but I declined; they left it on the bill. My girls liked the cheese ok. They add a cup of oil to the cheese. They only brought two trays of things to dip into the cheese, hardly much food, and they charge over $11 per person. The S'mores fondue was ok, but we ran out of chocolate, and again there was hardly anything to dip into the chocolate even though we were charged for three people, $10 each. The bill was $100 and we hardly ate anything. Even at half the price it wouldn't have been worth it.
Enjoyed a wonderful Father's Day meal! My 17 and 23 year old children really enjoyed the experience. It had been many years since we dined here. We will return soon.
our waiter danny was excellent personable and knowledgable
Great service and amazing food
The food and service were both really good. The only problem was that even though I had reserved a table for 8:15, we weren't seated until 9:15. Some diners were taking a long time to leave their tables. It would be nice if steps were taken to prevent that from happening again. But aside from that, I had a great time. The food was delicious, our server was really nice, our table was in a quiet and well-lit area, and all of our requests were accommodated.
I had a reservation for 8:15 and we didn’t get seated until 9:30. People who came after us complained and then they would be seated. This happened twice. They didn’t apologize or offer us anything to drink until we had already been there for an hour waiting. They should not have taken our reservation if they couldn’t honor it. We were not the only ones in this boat. It was horrible. We didn’t finish until 11:30 because then our waiter kept disappearing on us as well.
The waitress was amazing and very attentive
Excellent waitress.. She really made our night. Great food. Specially the desert. Thanks.
Our server worked hard, but it was clear they were understaffed.
We had a great time and enjoyed the food! Our server Danny was also very nice!
My wife has been wanting to go for years and I finally had the chance to take her. She said it was all she expected it to be. highly impressed.
Outstanding service, great food but very dirty silverware.
The Melting Pot is always a great go to for special occasions, date night, or just a fun girls' night out. I love the food, ambiance, and being able to linger over a meal. This place never disappoints!
This was my first time visiting, (Mother's Day) and I was disappointed to say the least. I feel like it was very expensive for what we were allowed to get off of the special Mother's Day Menu. The service as a whole was really nice, our waiter was terrific. But I wasn't impressed with the food at all.
Totally love the restaurant. Another Mother’s Day under the belt.
I took my family here for Mother's Day today. The service started out great with the server answering all questions in a friendly manner. We then quickly noticed a mouse on the floor near our table. We were moved to another table. The server went MIA allegedly to have her hand wrapped due to a sudden burn. She probably forgot about us because she came back without a bandage. Management did not offer to reduce the bill due to the mouse. The whole place has a an "old" feel despite the younger server staff. Would not return.
After the server brought us drinks, we sat for almost 45 minutes without anyone coming back to start the fondue - even though we had put our order in. I can’t blame the server because his section was entirely to too large for one person. They need to do better. It made for an extremely long night.
The food is always excellent. I thought the service this time was exceptional . We really enjoyed our service and how fast it was.
We've come here for several years to take our daughter out on her birthday. As much as we enjoy it, we can't afford to come more often.
Our large group had a very enjoyable meeting here the other night. We all got the "Girl's Night Out" special (even though our group consisted of men and women) so the value was high for what we got. The meal took a looooooooong time (we finished our meeting before we finished our meal) but it was worth the late night. Service was excellent and (perhaps because we also were holding a meeting) I don't think anyone felt like the food took too long to arrive at any point. Our waiter took the challenges of working with a large group in stride and was very pleasant even though I think we were the last to leave the place.
Overall, my only complaint is that the restaurant is VERY loud, so people at the end of the long table had trouble hearing at times. Otherwise we had perfect experience.
Called the place to remind them of a special birthday and they forgot/ignored the fact to bring out the birthday surprise.
Food portions are also very small
Wonderful. I really don’t come here that often I wish it was less expensive
Celebrating a 40th Birthday
You just pay a lot for the experience. Abselutly it is not worth the price. Two people and two drinks you are looking at about $120. That is too much for a quantity/equity of the food that you are getting. Not worth it
This restaurant was amazing! The service was excellent and timely, the food was extravagant and made from the best ingredients, and the overall experience was something that I am going to remember for a long time. This is also one of the priciest places I've eaten, with our bill coming in at 100+ for 2 people, no wine. I have never had anything close to the experience at the melting pot, and I believe that on a special occasion, it is worth the price.
Very fun place. Great staff. The kid's love The Melting P
Great tasting food and great service. Like other Melting Pot locations, this is a consistently good option.
We went for the cherry blossom festival special menu and it was superb. Jason, our server, was attentive without being intrusive and paced the meal extremely well. Definitely recommend!
Usually have a great time here but this visit was below expectations. Food is always great but the service was not up to normal standards.
I went to The Melting Pot for Cheese Fondue Day. The cheese special was delicious and a great value. I also tried one of their new cocktails, which was very good. The server was very helpful and attentive.
Food order was over cooked. One item came out with the wrong protein. The kitchen was extremely overwhelmed. Took a long time to receive order.
A most excellent restaurant, great service and meal. Well worth the price. We will be back
Zach our waiter was amazing! Would love to have him every time.
Very attentive service without being obtrusive. Food choices were good and plentiful. We were able to request refills when we ran out of some dipping items.
Great place for gathering , visiting and talking. Cooking in the pot is fun and makes the experience fun and memorable. A great escape from normal dining for special occasions.
We go to The Melting Pot often for fondue, especially cheese fondue. They do a great cheese fondue, with several options for type of cheese and other ingredients. We often just order the cheese fondue because the full dinner is quite a lot of food. Our server was very attentive. The only problem we experienced on this visit was that some problem at the front desk delayed us being seated for about 20 minutes even though an empty table was within sight (and we were eventually seating at that very table!)
This place is the best and one of my favorites. Well worth my drive of 1+ hours to get there. Servers are always great and staff is always pleasant and happy.
The food was very food and so were the drinks.
My only complaint are in the bathrooms. In the women’s bathroom the toilet seat was loose and the toilet paper holder almost fell of the wall. Another toilet was clogged and the third stall was out of toilet paper. All of these issues are easy fixes. I’d suggest to get these fixed ASAP so your guests leave with the great experience of eating an excellent meal and not remember the bathroom.
The food is good! The service is also great.
