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.

Though we were seated in a far back corner upstairs, even though nearly all of the tables downstairs and around the bar area were available, Cierra made our visit great—a huge improvement from the poor service received our past couple visits. Cierra’s service was on point, attentive without being interrupting and perfectly timed. She was friendly and engaging. We couldn’t have asked for a better server. We will definitely be dining more often and requesting Cierra as our server.

For being the first time at the Melting Pot, it was a lovely dining experience. The only issue we had was being seated in a small, closed area near the bar and kitchen. We heard the clanging of dishes the whole time. We are more social people and would have liked to be out in the open area of the restaurant.

We were celebrating my daughter’s birthday. Melting Pot is her favorite restaurant, and this location did not disappoint. Lonny was our server and gave exceptional service. It was a great evening. We will be back!

Really enjoyed our evening here (group of 3). Staff was extremely friendly and helpful even though we got there 10 minutes late. (We're really bad at leaving the office on time)
Everything about our evening was perfect. Our waiter was AMAZING and was very attentive and paid attention to my food allergy. (I'm allergic to wine. I know; the worst!) I can't wait to be back
