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.

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.

Amazing experience, tho the menu seemed complicated at first I played it safe by going with all the recommendations of our waiter who did an excellent job.

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.

It's been several years since I've been here as we live quite a distance away. We made it a very special occasion and it was well worth the drive. Our server was very upbeat and attentive and the food was beautifully prepared and tasted delicious. Cheese fondue to start and chocolate fondue for desserts were my favorites!

Our server Yip was amazing! He was knowledgeable , very friendly, and very patient with us new customers. The food was great. We cooked the food at the recommended time but did realize it didn't usually cook the meat all the way through so we had to cook the meat (not the seafood) longer. The only complaint i'd say is when we first arrived there was someone who quite clearly was a manager of some sort and a server at the host stand. Neither greeted us when we walked in, and after maybe 10 or 15 awkward seconds of standing in front of the host stand, the server flashed a quick smile and continued on doing what they were doing. it was maybe a minute before the server asked us how could she help. She was friendly, it was just awkward. I was surprised the manager never said a word to us or advised the server to speak to us.

My rating for a waiter there is tough because my first two experiences at the melting pot were with the most outstanding waiter I have ever had but he's no longer there. Therefore, the average here is still "good", I was just super-spoiled before with great explanations of the experience, good humor, and perfect service timing. Nonetheless, the overall experience this time was fantastic and my family loved it! We'll definitely remember it for a very long time and we will surely be back!

Boy has the Melting Pot changed! They no longer make ANYTHING at table side anymore. Everything is prepared in the kitchen and brought out. The portions are smaller and certainly NOT worth $300 (tip included) for 4 people! If we had wanted something that lazy, we would have gone somewhere else. We weren’t even asked if we wanted to customize! Bye Melting Pot!

The fondue is good. Not a nice place for any special occasion. The place looks run down. Made a reservation for an anniversary dinner and had to wait for a table to be cleaned even though the place was half full. The food price does not match the service or establishment. Something different, but would never return
