    I have been coming here for years have rented out different rooms and enjoyed myself plenty of times so it is very hard to write this review. We booked the ultimate experience for 2 and no flowers on the table like it states when making the reservation and then they only give you 3 flowers in a tiny milk glass carton. They didn’t make the cheese in front of us like they used to... There were 4 tables in the restaurant and they served us all right next to each other. We could hear everyone’s conversations. The server we had seemed preoccupied. The manager had to keep helping us out and had no idea what we ordered. Asked us about the cooking style. We received our meal 2 bites each of the main (2 shrimp, 2 chicken, 2 some kind of meat teriyaki maybe) then a steak (maybe 8 pieces) and a lobster tail (4 pieces) to share. Lastly, we received our desert and the server broke the whole cake inside the melted chocolate and it just soaked up all the chocolate we did not have any left to eat our deserts. Like I said I love this place and this was extremely hard to write but I’ve been a couple times in the last few months and let’s just say things have changed for the price you pay here at the melting pot these days. PS our bill with this deal and 1 drink each was right under $300 plus a tip.

    I took my daughter here for her birthday. It’s been a long tradition. They brought out a beautiful lit birthday desert & gave us the best table in the place. In our opinion…was very appreciated!! It’s expensive but worth it for a special occasion!

    Our table was dirty when we sat down, which was not a good start to the evening. We were drawn in by the Restaurant Week menu but upon a closer look, it didn't include dessert, which is a primary reason to go. As a result, the regular menu for two was a better deal than the Restaurant Week. Finally, this location tacks on a 5% surcharge on top of your meal and the only acknowledgement was a very fine print text hidden on the menu. I hate hidden charges.

    Came in for a special date night. Really enjoyed everything. Service was good from beginning to end. Drinks from the bar was a little slow but we barely noticed.

    The Melting Pot is my families “special treat” restaurant. We enjoy ourselves each time we go. This visit was no different. Our only complaint is that they don’t make the cheese fondue in front of you any longer and that portion of the meal was too small for the four of us. However, we did leave full. Thanks for another memory. We’ll be back if you can keep it open another year.
