The Melting Pot - Houston
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.
Outstanding service all around from the hostess to the server to the bartender. Food was excellent as well.
It is a great evening out for a special occasion. It is a bit pricey but we love to go there.
We eat here a couple times a year. Been here for birthdays and date night and something fun to do with the kids. I do think it’s a little pricey for having to cook my own food but it’s fun and different.
Amazing! The service was, by far, the best service we ever had in a restaurant!
we went as a family and was happy to know they had stuff for kids. the waiter was very nice and helpful. we would go back. kids loved the chocolate fondue.
alway quality food and ingredients, can be on the expensive side, but always a fun time
We hadn't been to The Melting Pot since about 25 years ago. We decided to go for my birthday and it was great! We won't wait another 25 years to go again! :)
The food is a bit overpriced but the service was amazing. They comped the touch of romance package dinner it was our anniversary. Classy move!
The food was delicious. Our waitress was very good. Our table was ready when we got there for a reservation. The only thing is… They seemed to have changed the process a little bit and don’t prepare the cheese and stuff at the table like they did before.
4 cours experience is the best fondeu experience ever
Our waiter, Dustin, was great! He helped u understand the menu. The cheese fondue and seafood fondue were excellent. The chocolate fondue was a fun novelty, especially for our 11 year old. I would definitely go again.
We enjoyed our dining experience. Most of the food was great. I ordered herb chicken. Boiled chicken had a wired texture and I didn’t like the taste. My salad was good but had too much dressing.
Fantastic food and fun to have the activity of fondue pot while you eat. Our server was great and made excellent recommendations.
My wife and I have New Year’s Eve dinner at the melting pot every year. It’s a nice romantic dinner with excellent food and drinks. Enjoy the annual picture they give us each time.
Good food and service
We made a reservation for our anniversary and the staff went above and beyond to make it a special night . Will definitely be going back!
Took family that was in town for the first time and they really enjoyed it. Since it was lunch we did just the appetizers, salad and dessert (party of 6 so our table had two burners on it). Waiter was fantastic. Since it was Sunday lunch there were several families there with kids so we didn’t feel like we had to worry about our kids bothering people.
Birthday -Awesome service
We were told even though we had a reservation it would still be a 45 minute wait. They told us that having open reservations on open table means nothing. Also they brought us moldy strawberries.
Staff was attentive and friendly. We had great evening at Melting pot
It was fantastic. We come for Christmas Eve every year.
The food was excellent and Andrey was an excellent server who mad the evening fantastic
My daughter and I have a Christmas date at The Melting Pot every year. I am glad that the dining experience has been sped up a bit. It used to take us at least 3 hours from start to finish. Now we are in and out within an hour and a half.
We had a party of ten for an 18th birthday party. The parents and teenagers all loved it. It’s a great ambiance for a party. The service was flawless. The fondue is a fun change of pace and the food was delicious (especially dessert😀).
A fantastic experience. Loved the food, drinks and service. Loved the cooking experience.
The Melting Pot never disappoints. Food is fantastic and the restaurant is a lot of fun. Perfect place to celebrate a birthday.
We came to celebrate 🎉. (Doing this for at least 15 years).We enjoyed being together & cooking our foods. There have been changes in the menu & quality over the years... but the customer service is 5🌟.
They have changed the fiesta cheese. A different quality & texture of cheeses. But they were out of carrots ( husband favorite ). & they went to a next door restaurant to get them for him!!! Wow
Salad was ok ... we Lolo ok forward to California..
The proteins were good ... shrimp & lobster our favorite (did not like the flavor chicken). They changed the batter so it does not get crispy. But the vegetable are still good. Sauces are still -something for everyone out of the plentiful flavors. Good job on keeping favorites & adding new flavors.
The chocolates are a nice ending. Like the fresh fruits & they will bring you more. Banana & chocolate peanut butter...& milk chocolate goes with everything.
Thank you for again a nice celebration.
One of our guests had never been to Melting Pot and had an amazing experience!
Will definitely be back.
You just can’t get a great deal of value out of these meals. For the price of one meal here I can go to a fancy steak restaurant and get a bigger, better meal.
Very good experience and the food was awesome! We will be back again.
Love - Thank you for fondueing with us at our Melting Pot. We look forward to your next visit. Thank you for sharing your rave review on Open Table.
Very pricey but always a good experience for special occasions.
Nowhere near what melting pot used to be. They don't make the fondue in front of you anymore, they give you smaller portions, service is not upscale as it was, nor are they educated enough to warn customers of dangers of undercooked poultry and nothing about the place was as good as it used to be a year ago.
Thank you for dipping into the Melting Pot and posting the five stars for your fondue experience. We are grateful to have been entrusted with your Daughter's birthday celebration.
We had a team celebration and everyone found the evening enjoyable - fantastic food, great service from Marc. Really took the time to explain the process to us and helped us with food choices. Thank you all!
I’ve been to numerous different Melting Pot locations, and this one was pretty on par. The food, as usual, was awesome. I liked that they offered some Houston specialties and flavors unique to the area. The only thing that wasn’t exceptional (though still not bad) was our server. She said she was new, which I totally get and understand. My frustration was that we had to order several times because she kept forgetting what we ordered. Even for our drinks, it was a challenge. I ordered a glass of wine, and she came back three times to ask which wine I wanted. At the end of it all, I got what I had been trying to order, it was just a bit of a drawn out process.
We were there to celebrate our daughter’s great grades. The food was excellent and our server was outstanding!
