40th wedding anniversary- forgot how fun yet intimate dining at the Melting Pot is. Great food and service. Only negative was the cost to park nearby. Highly recommend for anniversary or special occasion!

The ambience was great! Late Valentines dinner and the food was delicious! Very filling. The service was even better than the food, the manager came up to all the tables and asked us how we were doing, little things like that added to our overall experience.

Server and service was great, server was very attentive and friendly. Food a bit overpriced and boiled meat was not the best. First time there and was not expecting to eat boiled chicken, pork, and steak. Overall it was an okay experience, cheese fondue and chocolate dip was the best part of the meal.

The Melting Pot is our family go to spot in San Diego. We have made a point of celebrating birthdays and special times for our family here. The meal is like and event. Very social, keeping us all engaged while we enjoy a fun and interactive meal. One of many choices available from the Cohen Restaurant Group, several of which we have enjoyed over the years.
