Our waitress was amazing. Her service and attention were excellent. Overall, the food was pretty good but none of it felt like a $160 experience.

The shimp and salmon was excellent. Some of the best at any restaurant; the same can be said for the pork and chicken as well. Steak was kind of... Blah.

Cheese fondue was amazing and then the chocolate fondue was the best. Really, that was the main we went.

We had a mojito and mule which both were good as well.

Overall, I'd definitely go back for a special occasion but it's not a place you go to for a casual Sunday lunch.

Overall it was not terrible. Our service was REALLY slow though. At one point we had asked 3 different people if they could get our waiter because we had not seen him and were ready to move on to the next course. The food was decent though.

It was just okay. It smelled a little funky (was probably all the raw food, so to be expected). The cheese course was really yummy. Could maybe come up with some other things to dip? But it was good. The salad was just meh. Dressing was really bland (it was supposed to be peppercorn but really had no flavor). It wasn’t super cold or anything really exciting. The dinner was pretty good. The cuts of meat were great and the shrimp was good sized. But in the end you were really just boiling your meat/veggies in wine. Don’t get me wrong, it was good, but nothing like, “Oh my gosh, this is a totally different way to cook my food and it’s amazing the difference in taste!” The dessert course was probably our favorite. The chocolate was amazing and there were a ton of different things to choose from to dip. The drinks from the bar were absolutely top notch. Our server was really outstanding. The service and the drinks are really what saved the meal. Again, nothing was really wrong or awful, it just wasn’t all we thought it would be. Happy e would go back for drinks and dessert sometime, but not for dinner again. I’d rather spend that kind of money somewhere where the food wows me.

Finn was a top-tier server and we had a great experience. The four-course dinner for two is a really good deal, and Finn was very knowledgeable about the menu and made good recommendations. It was a LOT of food, so definitely be prepared.

We go to the Melting Pot every year to celebrate our anniversary, with the exception of last year during the pandemic! Our server this time around was awesome! She checked in often and we were treated very well. The food was amazing. The baked potato cheese was new to us, and our new favorite! We always highly recommend Melting Pot KC!

Me and my boyfriend really enjoyed it, it was our first time eating here. The baked potato fondue was phenomenal, my favorite part hands down. I was a bit nervous of cooking the meats ourselves but our server was fantastic and gave great guidance. We got the steak lovers, tried the herb crusted chicken, mushroom sachetti and shrimp. The chicken was great with the green goddess sauce! And for dessert we got the candy bar chocolate, my boyfriend absolutely loved it, I’m not a big peanut person lol. My only “complaint” is the lighting, a bit dark in the restaurant for my taste but I get trying to set the mood for folks that may be there on a special occasion. Otherwise, great food and service, we will definitely return when back in town. 😃

It is really expensive. The food it is not worth the price. A mini cheese fondue, a small, a soup pot to and mini chocolate fondue for three: 200$. I recommend to spend your money somewhere else. I am not going to ever return to this place.

Always an excellent choice for a long slow romantic dinner. We have been for several anniversaries. This was the same. This time I opted for the Ultimate Romance Package. The only issue was we did not get everything that is supposed to come. We did not notice until we left. Not the end of the world but for the cost, you expect to get what you are promised. We will be back.

The potion of dippers has continued to get smaller each time I’ve gone. The salad wasn’t near as good as it has been in the past & the chocolate was cold when they brought it out. It took 10 min for it to warm up. I think this is the first time I can say i was disappointed with my experience.

We ordered drinks. I ordered a dirty martini. It came out very sweat (they are not). I asked if they could remake it. The bartender sent the server back to argue that it was right. He reluctantly sent out a new one and it tasted the same. I never drank it and he didn’t care to ask why I didn’t. Then we ordered the cheese fondu. There were very few dippers. The bread was stale and the vegetables were so small you could barely skewer them with your fork. We then ordered salads. They were so tiny they would have looked small on a saucer plate. Now a $108 dollars plus tip later we just left. It basically ruined our anniversary dinner.

Great food as always. Since it was our wedding anniversary we were seated in one of the private booths which was nice. However we were near a blind corner and the staff are obviously required to announce if they were coming around the corner because every few minutes there would be a shout of "CORNER". This kind of killed the romantic ambiance.
