Fondue

The Melting Pot Restaurant is where fun is cooked up fondue style. Whether you’re celebrating a birthday, anniversary, long overdue date night or celebrating with a group.

We are the premier fondue restaurant, centrally located on Westheimer, providing a casually elegant dining experience and an intimate atmosphere. The relaxing four-course experience begins with a cheese fondue prepared table side and fresh salads while your entrée pot heats up. You’ll simmer a variety of meats, seafood and vegetables in the cooking style of your choice. Each bite is hot, fresh and delicious and all entrées are accompanied by an array of dipping sauces. Chocolate fondue is the finale, served with decadent dippers. Most make reservations for the four-course dining experience but more than a few have stopped by to satisfy that cheese fondue or chocolate craving. The Melting Pot also features a great wine list, specialty cocktails and martinis.

    Once again, we had a great experience. We were celebrating my daughter's birthday and it was our first time since their renovations in January. It had more of an open feel, yet is still cozy and each table is private. Our server was Kate and she was awesome! She checked on us often and each course was brought out quickly. We will definitely be going back.

    Today was supposed to be a special day for my girlfriends birthday. After we have been dating for 3 years. Decided to do the “Thursdate” with the Lovers Lane package. On the reservation I stated I have been sober for 16months as well as my girlfriend. They called me to confirm where I stated again that I was sober and if we can choose an alternative chocolate fondue because it has a sparkling wine. They confirmed and said they’d be happy to accommodate. We get there and we’re seated with a lovely display and our waiter (Erik Nelson) who was speaking loud and fast didn’t even mention a happy birthday or that we were a sober table. He asked for our drinks where I asked for a blackberry sage lemonade because we had that our first visit and was delish. He brings our water and we then our lemonade arrives later and I immediately grab it to drink then pull back from how tart it tasted. Where I then asked Courtney (my gf) to try it because it tasted nothing like our first visit. Then it clicked, the lingering of alcohol in the back of your throat that when you breath you smell and taste it. It was Bacardi loaded in my lemonade. Completely awful that was supposed to be a beautiful evening I then get handed a drink where I was unaware, was loaded with liquor. I went to the manager (Gavin) who immediately felt horrible stated he would be with me in a moment. He then gave a sincere apology and let me state what I would like to be done. So our $185 tab was completely comped and we switched to a different waiter (Kacey) who was delightful. But imagine a person who had no control like I did and kept the drink to themselves and ordered more. A person who just needed that final push off the edge and drink drive later that night because they couldn’t handle the liquor. It’s unimaginable how horrible this couldn’t turned out with another person because they waiter didn’t care. Btw the original served never apologized nor paid attention to other tables details.

    Great place for a romantic dinner. While the set menu is wonderful if you want all 4 courses, it's fun to just get cheese and an entree or cheese and chocolate or mix things up.

    We have been to The Melting Pot in other cities and had a much better experience. I find it of poor taste that they automatically put a 20% tip on our check with a party of 4. We most often tip quite well, but it is contingent upon the quality of the service. The service this day was lacking. We had multiple occasions whereby we didn't see or hear from our waitress for 30+ minutes at a time. Simply poor handling by management. Greedy. If your servers provide quality service, they will get a representative tip from their customers.

    We were really disappointed in this place. We wanted something different for my birthday, and this looked like so much fun. The food was just really mediocre. We were expecting much better flavors. Our server was very nice, but we felt like she really rushed us. (We even had a reservation.) The next course was bought out while we were still finishing the previous one, and she would offer to box up the course for us while we were still eating it. One of the reasons we picked this restaurant was because we wanted a meal where we could enjoy our food.

    We were looking for a brunch place for Easter on open table and melting pot came up. We had also seen an Instagram post about their specialties for the holiday and upon arrival we found out we were bamboozled. In the mood for breakfast or brunch we decided to order desert a la carte first. Our waiter did not find us an appealing table to serve after taking our order, and promptly dropped the check off soon after. Halting us from ordering anything else…

    It’s not the same. There’s no more mixing the cheese at the table which took away from the experience. Also not a fan of waiters walking around with iPads placing your orders. It’s a fun experience, but not the date night feel it once was.
