We had the spinach artichoke it was disgusting and the meat tough and tasteless what do you expect with boiled meat, and the worst part our table was all stiky with chocolate, I told the waiter and he said sorry about that but he didn't wipe the table. The price was too high for the value, i could have had a good steak at half the price. To be fair the salad was good.

Restaurant refused to accommodate our party with a second burner and wanted all 4 us to share one cooking sauce. 3 of the party members were eating meat/seafood, so this was not possible for us to all dip in the same sauce. Manager was so rude about it. Would not recommend

He was in the corner most of the time, due to the server needing to be where he was. We were very confused the whole time ordering. Especially since we had children with us (who were unsure if they would like any of the food). I wouldn't say this restaurant is kid friendly at all. Maybe if your only going for dessert. But there's no wiggle room at all. And is extremely hot inside.

He was slower than the bartender, who was making all the drinks AND running up and down the stairs to serve his table (all the food comes from downstairs, but the bar is upstairs) and the customers sitting at the bar. Speaking of the bartender, there was a mix-up at a neighboring table that resulted in a child being served an alcoholic beverage!

Considering the expensive price tag, I expected a better experience. They won’t seat you until your entire party has arrived. One of my friends was running late and there was no where to sit, so they kept us standing even though we had a baby with us. We wanted to start ordering appetizers and drinks, but they wouldn’t allow it.

The number one thing that made our dinner a 5-star? Our server Thomas. Hands down, one of the best we've ever had. Congrats to this location for having such an excellent staff. 2 of our 4 guests had dined here before, 2 were first-timers. Thomas offered his helpful tour of the menu and preparation, his suggestions on several menu choices and perfect tips on beverages etc.. Thomas always kept a watchful eye on our progress, ensured everything was to our liking and gave excellent directions on every aspect. We could tell he was a pro here, and excelled at engaging customer service. No mistake, The Melting Pot is not an everyday dining choice due to the time required to properly enjoy the courses, as well as the price. But the food quality was excellent, presentation and taste were above par as well. If we had to rate our 4 courses? #1. Chocolate (Bananas Foster) but it's a close a tie with #2. Cheese (Quattro Formaggio) both are DELICIOUS. #3. Main Entree (2 had Steak Lovers - 5*) and (2 had The Classic) #4. Salad, and that's only because something had to be 4th. Valet Parking is not listed on the website, but is available. Use it! The only concerning item was the disruptive EDM music and bass coming up from their downstairs neighboring business. But, it didn't start until 9p, and was unavoidable. Dine early, not an issue. We will dine here again. Thanks Thomas and The Melting Pot for a memorable evening. We will most definitely return for a Cheese & Chocolate course next time! Thanks Thomas for making our experience so special.
