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.

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.

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.

This was my second time going here. Me and my girlfriend went here for our one year anniversary and decided to go again for our three year anniversary. Love that you can add Romance to the table and make it very special. Food is amazing and price is reasonable.

Very enjoyable evening celebrating birthday. Food was great and fun to do the cooking. Only downfall was that they put our party of 6 in a long booth with only 2 chairs and one entrance to booth. All that scooting is not easy.

We always enjoy visiting Melting Pot. There have been some changes lately, so it was a little different experience. We preferred the old ways and food offerings, but it was still good! Had a great evening.

Everything was perfect! They set up our table with a candle, rose and rose petals for my anniversary! Service was great and the food was even better! They have the most delicious chocolate fondue I have ever had. It was our first time there and the waitress was very helpful by giving us drink suggestions and explaining how the dinner process works. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone and I would love to return again soon.

Went for my daughters birthday, it's always a fun special place. Be sure to leave yourself plenty of time to eat. This is a slow pace eating process.

Melting pot is our favorite place to celebrate. The food was awesome and the service very good. The only thing is that they forgot it was Carlos's birthday. But we had the same fun as we always do. Thanks!

Not this location- have been to other locations in Chicago, St.Louis, Colorado , Schaumburg -and this location previously, but things at the Houston location went down hill!!! We were very dissapointed! Our waiter was bad- no interaction, dropped off food- barely spoke to us, picked up payment, didn’t thank or acknowledge us-not what I expected.

We went early, about 5:00 pm, for happy hour in the dining room. My boyfriend and I each got a bottle of wine for happy hour, which was very reasonably priced. We went for the Houston Restaurant Week Menu, there was a good variety of options. Each course came with more than enough food for the two of us. Our waitress, Claire, was great and very personable. It is my boyfriend’s new favorite restaurant, couldn’t recommend more!! Definitely come hungry.
