    Great service however the restaurant itself is needing updating. It’s set in the basement of a building and needs new carpet, new ceiling tiles etc. It was clean however, just needs refreshed. Food is your average fondue - BUT, the desert fondue is amazing. Overall a great and unique experience.

    Came here for date night with the husband to fill a pregnancy craving I had. Our server Sierra (sp?) was amazing. Checked on us but not intrusive. She even made a cure date night plate for dessert. Food was great like always. They don’t make the cheese or chocolate in front of you anymore which is kind of a disappointment but everything was still wonderful.

    One burner at our table did not work well and there was little to no water in kettle to warm one serving of the two servings of cheese. Having to switch Potts from burner back and forth was time consuming and cooled the cheese while trying to eat it. Waitress would disappear and return periodically. I was recommended to get a cooking style that basically meant I had to boil all of my meats so I basically had to eat chewy servings. If you don’t mind coming to a restaurant to pay to cook ur own food then this is not recommended especially when u cook ur food and service isn’t good and ur bill is 300 dollars

    Great! Always enjoy dining at the melting pot. Service was wonderful and the food was spot on as always. Didn’t care much for the music - but that’s more a personal taste thing. Otherwise, about as perfect as can be.

    My husband & I went on Father's Day per his request. The restaurant was not as busy as we had thought and was able to be seated early per our request. The hostess was friendly along with our waitress. Our waitress was very patient with us as it took awhile to decide what we wanted for our meal. Her service was fantastic though and she was very kind. They had a Father's Day special but decided to order from the original menu. Cheese fondue was wonderful. We then ordered the Mojo seasoning for our entrees (I got the classic and my husband ordered the Pacific Rim). I would say that if you want to enjoy the sauces provided for your meats/veggies, the vegetable broth would be your best option. The Mojo flavor was intense and often overpowered the sauces. The dessert was wonderful as well. Drinks were highly overpriced for the amount you got but they were good. Only negative thing about the restaurant itself was the smell. It did have a musty smell but guess that's what you get for being in a basement. I would recommend if money is not an option as you will pay around $200 for two if you order drinks.

    Service weak by inattentive staff with attitude. They also add gratuity (party of 4…probably foe all parties) but try and rush the bill through not telling anyone of this policy THAT is fraud…they made no apologies for this when I called them on it, BUYER BEWARE!!!

    The Melting Pot - Kansas CityResponded on June 21, 2022Please give us a call at the restaurant 816-931-6358. There is not automatic gratuity for parties of four.

Ongoing training with our staff is very important to us.

    Our first time here and we were underwhelmed. The food was just okay. Nothing memorable. Definitely not worth $165 for 3 of us (and we shared the meal for 2 and just added on an extra salad). Would maybe go back for the dessert chocolate fondue but wouldn’t return for the rest of the meal. It’s the experience I guess but the food wasn’t anything great and you actually cook the meat yourselves at the table. For the price we are disappointed in the whole experience.

    We had a great time for our anniversary!! Abigail was our service and she was great and very knowledgeable about the gluten free menu. Very impressed with the gluten free bread, brownie, and snickerdoodle cookies! They even made us chocolate covered strawberries to take home that you usually have to call ahead for. We will definitely be recommending this to friends and family!

    We went to the Melting Pot for my birthday. There were 4 of us in the party. Our server did an excellent job!! She explained our options, explained the differences and made recommendations. She checked on us regularly and kept glasses full. The food was delicious. The fondues, the salad, the main course all plentiful and attractive to view and scrumptious to eat. All fresh and well prepared.

    While the food was excellent, the service was underwhelming. My husband and I each purchased a wine flight and frequently had to remind our server to bring out our next glass. Despite letting our server know we would be purchasing strawberries to go at the start of our order, it was evident he had forgotten about it as we had to wait nearly 30 minutes after our meal was over to get them. At one point in time, I had to reach out to the hostess because it was evident our waiter had forgotten about us altogether. Also, cleanliness was lacking. There was food on the floor adjacent to our table for the entire duration of our meal and there was a leftover trash under our table.

    First time experience. Went for wife's birthday. We did the 4 course and had a couple of bar drinks. I paid for the Touch of Romance package. Table presentation was nice with rose petals in a heart and a birthday card. Although the food was average, our server, Mia, was fantastic! For the money spent it was worth the one time experience, but I don't think I would go multiple times a year.

    It was super nice, server was really good! Just when he brought the bill it was a lot more than what this app told me it would be. This app said it would be $98. I got a water and she got lemonade, but it ended up being like $119, then went up to $142 because of the tip. I was just thrown off for sure!!

    We went here for Mother’s Day dinner. We had a party of 5, but we’re sat at a 4 top with another chair crammed in. Do not reserve a table in the bar. The KC Melting Pot is downstairs and has the feel of a dingy basement. It was humid, floors were slimy and fruit flies buzzing around. Only one of the burners were working at our table, so we all had to cook out if 1 pot. After reading multiple reviews that the pots didn’t heat up correctly, I should have known better. It was all around disappointing.

    I honestly was not 100% in love with the fact my husband had chosen to go here for our anniversary. The last few times I went had lost my love for it outside of the chocolate itself but this experience was completely different. The waitress was phenomenal and very attentive. The food was very good. I am perfectly fine with going back again.
