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.

Our waitress was constantly rushing to the point she was very messy. Examples: The pan was no where warm, not even to the touch, when she brought out the cheese. She kept stirring the oil and cheese so roughly it kept splashing on my husband and me. After about 5 minutes, the pan finally started to heat up. Before we had 5 bites, we had our salads served to us. No time to enjoy our cheese. A few moments later, we received our meat. We did not have a pan for our meat yet and she was dropping off the menu for the deserts. The waitress dropped the pan off about 3 minutes later and before turning the pan on, she ran away. We did not see here for about 10 minutes then a very nice manager walked by and turned the pan on for us and checked on us every few minutes. My husband and I have been to the Melting pot many times (about twice a month) and until this past Saturday we never felt like we were a burden. It will be a very long time before we go back to the Melting pot.

What a fun evening with the children. Mmmm the cheese with the veggies and bread was divine. The dark and milk chocolate was decadent. Really loved the waffle pieces, bananas and berries. Nice time during our spring break staycation.

I came with my adult son for my birthday. Our waitress was very accommodating when I asked for the Alpine Cheese fondue to have the original recipe with Kirschwasser in it. It was delicious! We had full orders each for cheese and desert and split a brunch item (goat cheese/dried fig toast, also delicious). I was a little disappointed in the caramel/chocolate fondue sauce as it was 1) quite watery and did not stick to the fruit and 2) not served warm, which other chocolate fondue has been in the past. But all in all our visit was lovely and food delicious and I look forward to more visits - we may return soon for the Happy Hour deals!

The food was good, the waitstaff was not in their game though. Usually the waitstaff is constantly making sure you are ok. This time it was difficult to get things in a timely manner. It wasn’t really worth the price seeing as the service was sub par

As usual, The Melting Pot out does itself for any occasion. We love doing our catch up socials here whether there is 2 or 8 of us. We always have a great time and who doesn't love Cheese & Chocolate! The staff is amazing and never rushes us off of a table.

Enjoyed the cheese and chocolate fondue, but the entree’s were a waste of $. Impossible to properly cook your meat, when all the pieces of meat (the same type of meat) are different sizes. Even cooking them using the suggested times, some were undercooked and some over cooked due to the inconsistency of the meat sizes. Spoke with hostess about the issue and she had a “who cares” attitude.

We were right next to the kitchen, so it was very loud. Our server was nice but a little unsure about a lot of questions. We were given the incorrect cheese for our dish and my meat was a very different color (for the same cut). Additionally, it was overly priced for the quality and amount of food.

The Melting Pot is a fun way to experience food with friends. For the money I'd just assume not work so hard. This location is pretty old and needs to be updated. However the management and staff were excellent.

We visited the Melting Pot for a Retirement dinner. The waiter was great. Hes was interesting and was very professional and informative. The manager announced him self and helped with food. The food was fantastic. The cheese fondue was the baked potato and I highly recommend it. The chocolate was a white chocolate and caramel. Counldn't get enough.

Overall it was great. Service was at a tempo that kept a 7 & 10 year old interested in the dining experience, while not rushing the grownups. Excellent service, and really cool, private dining experience. My friend said the fondue reminded her when her parents would make it for her and her brother when they were kids.

Great food and service! Pricey, to say the least... For a family of four with no chocolate fondue. The entree (3 meat individual choices for 4) and cheese fondue for 3, the cost was $170 plus tip. So be prepared! It was freezing cold in the restaurant! My husband and I had to put on our jackets for comfort.

First time visiting the Melting Pot and it was an amazing experience. The staff was very attentive from the manager to our server. They made our anniversary celebration very special. We did not know what to expect going in, but it was awesome. The ambiance and lighting were perfect, along with the noise level were perfect. We had neighboring guests, but due to the design of the booths, you could not tell. It was very personal and cannot wait to go back.
