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 server was fabulous!! The food was basic, the best part of the meal was dessert. But even that wasnt Great...
Pricing for what was given makes the whole experience not worth going again.

The set menu was overpriced. Our server was good, but we felt like we were a bit rushed compared to the other times we ate there due to it being Valentine’s Day eve. Food is good not great.

This more of a date place but I took my well behaved daughter and four of her friends for her 9th birthday. They thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

Less cheese and chocolate fondue and higher prices, cooktop pot was hard to reach on the corner table we had.

Service was very good and the food was good. Interesting experience but for a family of five to eat it was $300 which is by far the most expensive meal we’ve ever had. Although we enjoyed it overall, it’s a one and done for us.

We have noticed within the past year some of the prep that the waiter performed with the pot is now done in the kitchen. We were told to save time. My wife and I enjoy the "show". We feel to pay the same but get less show is a rip off in a sense. It tastes the same, which is fantastic, however. We thought perhaps it was due to current events to limit exposure with people but our waiter told us the change happened months before. We usually visit twice a year but if this is going to be the new norm we will drop down to one visit annually and go to a chain high end restaurant that will still flambe Bannas Foster for the other occasion.

We were celebrating my daughter’s 17th birthday. The experience was amazing from the moment we walked in until the moment we walked out. The staff was extremely friendly and accommodating.

I had bought a garlic/lime powder at the table I never received. My fault because I didn’t remember until after we left to get it.

Melting pot was great for my first experience. I did feel it was over priced, however I really enjoyed the service and ambiance. Probably not a weekly restaurant to visit, but worth it every now and again.

The only thing I would have changed was the Margarita. It wasn’t right! It was soooo syrupy. Also, the food went right through me. I actually had to make a most embarrassing stop on the way home to find a bathroom. My fiancé experienced a similar reaction upon arriving home. It’s never happened to us in our previous visits so we weren’t sure if the food was off or what. The taste was great, enjoyed it all other than the drink. Just wish it hadn’t had us both running for the toilet! Always a great experience otherwise though. Your staff is polite and professional. Enjoyed seeing Gavin again. ☺️

What a great evening. We had the alpine cheese and s’mores dessert- so delicious. The Margaritas are so so so good and the mojito is perfect. Ashley waited on us and made the evening perfect and fun! The most perfect evening I could have hoped for. Thank y’all!

Wasn’t as delicious as I thought it would be. Breads could have been more homemade and crustier. We loved the chocolate fondue, that was the best! I’d come here just for dessert.

Unfortunately our experience was not what we expected. Service, noise level and the lack of heat on our stove took away from what could have been a great experience.

It was a great experience for my wife's birthday celebration. The food and service were excellent. Our only issue though was we ended up being seated next to a large party that was celebrating a kid's birthday that ended up being pretty loud. All in all a good experience..
