Great time! Great food. Very fun for a special occasion.
Got sat next to a loud big group so it was hard to hear at my own table. Food was great. Service was speedy. Dessert is the best part!!
Had a great time introducing a friend to The Melting Pot. Great food, fun times.
We had a wonderful experience at The Melting Pot. Went to celebrate my son’s 6th grade graduation. We were a party of 7 so we were seated in a double burner table. The complete experience from the explanation of how to order and house specialties to the service and the food was incredible. The experience is fun and interactive which was a hit with the kids. The food was tasty, I recommend the Wisconsin cheese fondue as an appetizer, the Classic as an entree to taste a little of everything and you can’t go wrong with any dessert. That was my kids favorite part of outing!
This was our first time. We didn't know what to expect and we were surprised that we needed to cook our own meat and vegetables in the pot. It was fun but we didn't really do the best job of it. The food tasted great and the cheddar cheese fondue was fabulous.
Delicious 4 courses fixed price menu for two people. There was enough food for 3 of us.
We always love The Melting Pot when we're in town. Great service and always a wonderful experience.
Our server was great and attentive, he made my daughter's graduation celebration a memorable one.
Birthday and everyone made us feel welcome. They accommodated us by switching booths when my son was too cold. Would definitely go again
Fantastic service. Danielle was exceptionally friendly and knowledgeable. Made great recommendations. We will definitely request her as a server next time we go.
It’s on us a little more involved on the cooking side but the chocolate fondu made up for it.
The servers are amazing and so kind . We loved it . Great place for an anniversary dinner .
The service was very slow between courses. Don’t know if it was kitchen or server. Example, took 15 min. To get a cup of coffee. Also, the adult received the main course food and it took another 20 min. to bring the child’s chicken.
Food was good, but a little overpriced. Service as a little slow.
Did not live up to expectations. The portions of dippers were insanely small relative to the cheese. Nice GF options but would not go back.
Phenomenal experience!! We went on Thursdate and it was very intimate. Our waitress was very sweet she made the experience even better by explaining everything to us. We did the four course meal and you pretty much cooked your own food!! The cheese was amazing, we tried the cookies and cream marshmallow chocolate, A HIT!!! Overall everything was good even the drinks!!!
Food was okay nothing special but we were given a seasoning to season the meats and sauces to accompany. Server brought us the wrong raw meats then came back and took back the meat and told us this was for the table behind us, giving them the same food that was at our table. Overall, was a fun family experience disregarding the mistakes made.
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!
We love the fondue. Service tonight wasn't as good as normal but we will keep coming back for the experience.
Went for an anniversary and had a full custom experience. Definitely coming back
The hostesses were horrible, rude and in accommodating. If we didn’t have such a large party we would of walked out right away. Soured the whole mood of the night.
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.
