We had asked for a single mothers day meal and when we got the check we realized they gave us 2 and i was not expecting to pay $155 that night. Wish server understood clearly we asked for one meal for the both of us to share
Great food and service as usual. Always a great night out.
Fantastic service. Ask for Danielle!!
Although the dining experience was superb, we will not be returning to this Melting Pot. The Homelessness in the Gaslamp quarter is noticeably bad and trending worse. A short 2-3 block walk from parking to the restaurant is a minefield of smoking, drugs, and vulgar behavior. It was a mistake to walk with my 1-yr old and wife to and from the restaurant. Notwithstanding the unwanted exposure, the risk of an unprovoked altercation is certainly increasing. The staff was great, and we truly enjoyed the food and service, but I will not return given the surrounding deteriorating conditions; not worth the risk.
We love melting pot! The cheese fondue is amazing…all of them. I love the garden pot entree since I don’t eat meat. The dipping sauces are delicious. The service is beyond the best. We always request Thomas. He’s the best!
Went for an anniversary and had a full custom experience. Definitely coming back
Server was amazing and it was a fun experience! Definitely worth the money not just an expensive dinner meal, it's a full cooking experience.
the food was amazing and it was a really cool experience. Everything tasted great and they had lots of options for some food restrictions!
It was a very good experience my first time eating fondue and I wasn’t disappointed I give it a 10/10
We went for my birthday and it was an amazing experience, I've always wanted to go and it seemed like a good time I definitely want to go again, the food was delicious, could use a little more light inside but over it was a wonderful experience! Made my birthday special
This was such a fun experience!
Awesome!!! This is one of our favorite places to go for special occasions. Our grandson enjoyed the attention he received on his special 16th birthday. We loved sharing this experience with him and his parents.
We love the atmosphere of this once old bank, beautiful architecture makes one feel very comfortable and relaxing. These days we need it more than ever. So thankful the Melting Pot is opened once again.
I love melting pot always have wish there were more locations the service is always great
It was a great experience for our daughter's 8th birthday. Our server was amazing and really made her dinner special! The experience was great!
Love this place
Easter made special. My oven broke and we opted for Easter dinner out! Great fun for the family. Super friendly and attentive staff.
We love coming for a date night so came for the Easter special dinner. Waiter was courteous, food delicious.
My husband and I came to the Melting Pot for our anniversary dinner and it did not disappoint! Our waitress was so knowledgeable and helpful. The food was delicious and flavorful. We will definitely be back!
Nice ambience. Waiter very helpful. Had a great time. Hostesses always cheerful.
This was my first time here. I was impressed by the quality and quantity of the meat. The only thing that felt totally basic was the salad. Excellent service. Will be back!
Love coming here. Incredible food, incredible service.
Great cheese fondue choices. And superb service!
It was very nice and perfect for the occasion. The staff was very helpful and on it everything we needed was taken care of quickly. My girlfriend loved the experience so you get your money’s worth an overall amazing dinning experience.
I’ve been here numerous times and it’s been great every time. My friends and I went out and it was both their first times and they loved it! Both our server Kevin and his serving assist who i didn’t catch his name were amazing!

Everything was perfect, I wanna thank my waiter! He was the best and made us feel like no other place I’ve ever been. So thank you for making our night so special
Went for my birthday had an amazing time. It was romantic and very comforting due to COVID-19 everyone was very friendly
Expected not to like the food but I was wrong. This place is great.
With tip - it came to $300 for a family of 4. Service was really good as well as the food. They were very accommodating of having 1 vegan in the group so 2 out of 4 of us were cold during dinner. Bring a jacket! 😉
Would definitely go back again though!
During these covid times my husband and I have been very understanding and grateful that we are able to eat inside of a restaurant and that the waiting staff is willing to still work. With that being said we are very patient people, however our waiter was horrible, he did not explain anything to us, he also seemed to get short/angry with us when we asked for more water or to turn on our stove. He even stated that he usually explains to the guests how all of the "melting pot" process works, but that he was "too busy" and continued to serve his other tables. We sat right behind another booth where the other couple had their phone alarm going off every 5 mins to remind them to take their meat out of the broth....very annoying.The guests using the alarm behind us was not the restaurants fault, however when we are just trying to enjoy a special dinner on a weekend night and the alarm noise that wakes us up for work every weekday is going off right behind us, it was not pleasing at all. That couple also had rose petals on their table and we did not, even after booking our reservation as a special occasion. Again annoying. Overall we had 3 different waiters serve us. Service was not improved until we told them that we were celebrating our wedding weekend.....then they seemed to become more friendly. They seemed to try and fix everything with a free chocolate strawberry, but that does not make up for sub-par service, especially when our bill was over $200. We will not be coming back to this location anytime in the near future.
We love this place, fun date night. But my 10 year old loves it too. And he is a picky eater. Pricey. But worth the special occasion. Keep an eye out for deals. They do happen.
Amazing service from Thomas, and all others! Felt very safe and well taken care of, thanks for a great celebration.
The Melting Pot never disappoints! Parking is difficult in Gas Lamp, but so worth the hassle.
Love the Sweet 16 package...it was an incredible way to celebrate!
Everything about our girls night out at this place was amazing. We spent way more time there than we should have. That’s how amazing and fun it was. We were mindful to leave an awesome tip. Staff fantastic.
Great food & service
Roberto was great, he simplified everything as much as possible and the food was good.
During the pandemic, The Melting Pot in San Diego continues to provide exceptional service. We will be back.
Restaaas within walking distance of our hotel in the Gaslamp Quarter. Noise was minimal, food was good as always and our server was great.
Excellent setting, service, food and ambiance. Very expensive, but worth it every once in a while.
