    We made reservations on a Saturday night for 8 people. This is not the style of restaurant to take a group of people. We waited 20 minutes to be seated and when I asked the hostess of it was going to be much longer, she thought our group had already been taken back to our table. We were still standing there. Once we were seated, we waited 45 minutes to get our drinks. The idea of cooking at your table is very cool but not ideal for more than 2 people. You have only 1 burner for a max of 4 people. It takes a very long time for everyone to cook their own food. Over all, we were at the restaurant for 3 1/2 hours!!!!!

    We had a fun time and our server was nice. The speed of service was quite slow starting with our arrival. The "lobby" area became quite crowded while we waited for our table despite having a reservation. Additional, with a party of four, you must need to specifically ask for a booth/table with two burners. We went for our daughter's 17th birthday and expected the kids to do things their own way on a seperate burner. I did not even know had single burner tables. We have only been to The Melting Pot a few time. In short, it became a bit of a disappointment when we could only pick type of cheese, only one cooking style for the entrees, and only one chocolate flavor for all 4 of us even thought we did 2-Big Nights Out. Finally, when making the reservation it asked if the occasion was for a special event. I answered yes to our daughter's birthday. I did not expect it to mean much but since it was asked, I assumed it would mean something. The server did acknowledge there was a birthday at the table and then said "Happy Birthday" to our daughter after learning it was her. Overall, it was fun, but quite expensive when considering our choices were cut in half for three aspects of the meal. Assuming we go back and have more than two people, I will try to remember to ask for the two burner option. FYI, the question about recommending The Melting Pot to a friend, is actually a "Maybe", but that was not an option. I would for a two person date or a double date when two burners are provided.

    Not best ambiance for date night unless you manage a secluded table. Either very bright lighting for periphery tables or lots of families in more dim center area that also use "Thursdate" for pricing. Would recommend requesting a table hidden away without the overhead piercing bright light for a better date night ambiance.

    We have grown to love The Melting Pot for our family's Christmas Eve celebration. It makes for such a special way to spend time as a family and it's such a leisurely meal with so much interaction, as well as a "something for everyone" menu!

    It was an absolutely terrible experience. The server forgot our drinks, then didn’t provide any refills. We had 4 course meal and was only brought three. Then told we had to take our chocolate fondue to go because he forgot to bring it to use. We didn’t even receive a half of cup of chocolate. And we don’t live together. Nothing was taken off our bill. Not impressed!!

    Server was not helpful and did not provide any detail on how the menu worked even though we told him that we had never been there before. He was young and telling inappropriate stories about teenage pregnancy. He also stirred the cheese fondue so hard that cheese sauce splashed all over the table and our utensils. It was a crazy experience that I will never do again. Dessert was the only good thing but by the time it came we were just ready to get out of there.

    If you look on my Google reviews I don’t ever complain about restaurants because I know it’s not an easy line of work. However, when spending upwards of $150 for two I expected better service. Me and my wife were greeted by a 16 year old who was talking while chewing food of some kind. He was kind enough to cover his mouth with his hand while talking to us however. The waitress forgot a couple things on our order. I still tipped her %20 because it’s clear that this place charges it’s customers a premium then turns around and pays its employees minimum which translates into the level of service. Another top heavy American business model that fails their employees by not paying them enough to show up motivated to work.

    Disappointing. My husband and I come here once a year for a special occasion & over the past few years the ambiance and experience as a whole has significantly declined. This may have been our last time giving The Melting Pot another chance. I understand inflation has hit us all, but significantly smaller portions with much higher prices (not to mention our bill rang up higher than the advertised price and instead of adjusting, we got “that must be old, sorry about that”) was a double whammy that left us walking out still hungry, but no appetite to get more. What was once a quiet, classy, usually romantic night out was an unprofessional, loud, almost stressful experience I don’t want to risk having again.

    We had booked 3 hours and thought that we'd be out in time for our next event of the evening. Unfortunately when we told the server we had plans that didn't register so we were late to our next event. Yes I know dining here is an event all in itself, but when having a celebratory day, other things were planned. Other than that the food and service was amazing

    Rylee was great! I’ve had her before and she is always professional and welcoming. I love dining here by myself right when they open. It’s quiet, I can read, listen to a podcast and have a nice escape. Just EXPECT to be here for a couple hours for the full experience. Allow 2.5-3 hours for optimal digestion and dining experience.

    The restaurant has really changed. It is really dirty all over the floors, ceiling, vents, booths, etc. I was uncomfortable eating there it was so bad. To top it off the waiter never told us the special so we got a less expensive meal that cost more than the special. It was not 150 dollars spent well.. we will definitely be going elsewhere in the future. I have many pictures of the dirt, dust, rips, and grime in the restaurant.

    We loved our experience at Melting Pot Grand Rapids! The food was incredible, and so filling. So many options and everything taste great. The service was amazing! Our server was actually the manager (Joe Alexander) and he did an outstanding job. The restaurant was clean, quiet, and romantic! We will be back for sure!

    Awkward and confusing- we arrived to the restaurant and were turned away due to being told it was reservation only. We left and while looking on open table for other restaurants discovered open availability all night at the melting pot. We made a reservation and returned on time. Upon arrival we were informed our reservation could not be honored because the manager gets to decide on reservations. Confused, we asked to speak with the manager to clarify the appropriate way to eat here. After waiting, the manager never arrived and we were now informed we could actually be seated. Our server was sweet, the food was decent, and we were understanding the kitchen was moving slow that night (was an over 3 hour experience). However, we felt so uncomfortable from the initial experience we realized we should have taken that as a warning sign. We were first time guests and I hope this isn’t a regular occurrence.
