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.

After the first time I went, I knew I had to bring my husband in. We had an early Valentine’s Day date and he was blown away by how good everything was. He couldn’t stop telling his coworkers the next day! We’ll be back again no doubt.

As always, it was wonderful. My only complaint would be feeling a bit rushed through what id normally a relaxing dinner...out salads come out only moments after getting the cheese course, and the server literally took our salads away half eaten while we both still had the forks in our hands...we had paused to talk for a moment.

Otherwise, everything was great.

We were welcomed and shown to our table quickly. They asked if we had dined here before and explained the menu options to us. It was fun to see them prepare our fondue dish right at the table. We only had cheese fondue, but had two varieties and both were very good. A table near us had a large assortment of fondue and the waiter explained each clearly as it was brought out. Service was good, the food was good and fun for a different kind of get together with friends. There wee many couples there and it looked like several celebrations as well. I would go again.

We booked a table to ensure the table and environment would be nice. We were sat next to a children’s party which ruined all expectations. The server was slow and it often felt like we were forgotten. The food was priced per person even though we were not getting receiving double the food that we Paid for

I love this place. Everything is delicious. Love the Alpine cheese fondue and the Turtle chocolate fondue. Too bad that The Woodlands closed and this one is very far from us. Very expensive.

We chose Melting Pot to celebrate our Valentine's Day this year. We truly enjoyed ourselves. The food was great and the service staff was wonderful. The restaurant was quiet. Initially, we were seated next to a family who brought a very young crying baby to dinner with them. We asked if we could move and the staff was very accommodating and supportive of our request. We did not feel rushed at all even through it was a Saturday night. Thanks and we will be back again!

I was very surprised with the service. The waitress was amazing and took the time to explain everything as we were there for the first time.

When we mentioned we need Gluten Free for one of us she brought a lot of GF options with no extra cost which is amazing.

A great experience for our first time. I will definitely come back!!!

Food isn’t bad but portions are small. Servers are chatty and will interrupt your conversation to talk about whatever they want while prepping your food.

Not a great value but a fun and unique experience.

The food was good and staff was friendly and helpful. It can be a little loud but not overly so. Main issue had to do with children in the next table that were not being managed by their parents. Almost loud enough to ask for help from staff. Overall, nice experience.

The experience of cooking one's own food is very much what one would expect and Jacob our server was attentive and helpful in explaining the menu and making suggestions but the food quality and quantity fails to deliver good value when compared to the many restaurants in Houston. The recommended four course meal and a couple of cocktails will be +/- $125 before a tip. The food and the experience is somewhat unique but not a great value.

The staff makes you feel welcome the moment you enter the doors. The baked potato fondue is amazingly delicious. I was glad to see that a grill had been added to the menu; I didn't care for the meat in the fondue previously. Although, my family truly enjoyed the grilled shrimp and salmon, they didn't care for the duck.
Overall, it was a new experience for my family and the kids had a wonderful time and enjoyed everything. This was my second visit, and the staff was professional, polite and courteous as before. I will return again.

Excellent Service and food quality. We were forced to buy meals for the kids when the base meal amounts would have been enough for the four of us. This was the most expensive meal our family has ever had out at $260 for four people (2 kids).
