Jay was amazing
The service was great. The ambiance was amazing. We really enjoyed our night at this location.
The service by Kayla was impeccable and the manager came up to us to ask how we were doing which was nice. I love the ambiance, it's darker and cozier compared to the UTC location which is more open, brighter, and louder.
The thing that was disappointing was that the menu has changed since the last time I went and I really don't like being able to choose what I want. They now have groupings and no longer have the ahi or garlic shrimp and other items I liked. My friend and I got the 4 course dinner for 2 that was $115.95 BUT we had to pay extra - $8.95 for the Steak Lovers and $5.95 for the Land & Sea. We each got a bottle of wine, $36 for Zen of Zin and $43 for KJ Vintners Chardonnay. We added cream puffs for $4.95 for our dessert fondue. The total with tax AND an $8.00 surcharge was $240.07. Gratuity was about $50.
I am so disappointed because while the food was good and the service great, our meals were NOT worth $150 per person and I won't be going for a big meal without a coupon again. If I do go again in the near future, it will be on a Girl's Night Out, before a show, or happy hour.
Our server, Thomas was wonderful!
Great service, and the food is always good. I think it is a little overpriced, but most things are in the gaslamp. I would definitely go here again for a special occasion.
Love this place! Fun!
Ask for Thomas! He is the best!
My boyfriend and I had a late Valentine’s Day/ birthday date at The Melting Pot. He had never been before and we had a wonderful time and really enjoyed the special menu.
Brian was absolutely awesome, very attentive! We celebrated Valentines Day as a family and he went above and beyond to ensure our 7 year-old felt very special! The food was delicious, the drinks too... but it’s was the warm, caring service Brian provided that made the night memorable. We’ll be back to celebrate again soon.
Jay was an excellent server! He was prompt and made us feel welcome
