    Love that is something a little different, combining good food with an experience. It is a little pricey but you get multiple courses. It's hard to not fill up on cheese fondue before you get to the other courses, so pace yourself and don't be afraid to take things home! They will try to sell you all kinds of other things from drinks to roses or glassware, but service is great.

    This was our first Thursdate as they call it and it was amazing. The only complaint I have is the flower petals they placed on the table was not marketed on the website as being an extra cost or I would not have done it and just left the table plain.

    Good thing we were using a gift card or this review would probably be even more harsh. First, to be seated in the bar of a nearly empty restaurant was pretty ridiculous given we had a reservation and were dressed for an evening out. I guess that's to be expected when the hostess is wearing sneakers. I was skeptical before we got there about the condition of this restaurant - it did not disappoint. Old and outdated. And if you have any kind of mobility issues, beware - you'll have to ride the one-person wheelchair lift to the underground dining room. As we perused the menu with the KU volleyball team to entertain us on the two TV screens, we made our selections from the $102 "Complete Experience for Two." The Alpine cheese dip first course was tasty although extremely salty. Definitely enough cheese to get through the plate of bread, apple chunks, and small pieces of raw carrots that were not easily retrieved when they dropped into the pot. Course 2 - my California salad was fine and swimming in the fruity pink dressing which juxtaposed my husband's Caesar that had no dressing on it to speak of. Course 3 - Surf and Turf with chunks of salmon, a handful of shrimp, sirloin, and chicken with a dense rub on it. Perhaps it was the choice of the Mojo boiling liquid to cook it in, but there was little to like, much less love about the results of boiled meat. We got through it with the promise of the dessert chocolate fondue course. It was delicious and there was enough left over to take some home. The bartender kindly wrapped it for us with some extra cake which was a lovely gesture as our server was tied up with his other two tables. Perhaps this chain's performance in other cities is of a higher quality, but for Kansas City, there are so many better choices to spend $150.

    I had an absolutely wonderful evening! I was celebrating my fourth anniversary with my boyfriend. All of the food was amazing! The rose petals and candle on our table were such a nice touch. I would 100% go back any day! I also deeply appreciated when they remembered it was our four years and made a decorative plate to celebrate for us! So sweet. 100% recommend to anyone!

    Jacob was excellent. He made my wife's special bday dinner even more special with his personality, efficiency, and demeanor. He will be very successful in whatever path he chooses to follow. He didn't make excuses when things went not as planned, but did proffer an explanation, versus blaming others. He then made it right, with no hesitation. He is an asset to your restaurant, and went above and beyond to make our night a great experience.

    This is a favorite spot of ours. We were celebrating our anniversary in a private booth. Despite a tiny bit of confusion about our seating everything was pretty great. Our only issue was with the garlic pepper steak. It was basically all pepper so the flavor got lost. We'll definitely be back, though!

    I went to the melting pot with my family to celebrate my birthday and try something new with them. Our server, Daisy, was amazing. She was so informative, considerate and really went out of her way to make it a good time. Most of my family had never been and she explained everything perfectly and really took her time with our table. Everyone really enjoyed their fondue and the experience.

    All of the staff we encountered were outstanding and helpful and knowledgeable. The food was delicious and we thoroughly enjoyed everything about the experience. As can happen we had uncooked food leftover and not wanting to be wasteful we asked how we could transport it since we had a cooler and a long drive the next morning. Our waiter suggested we put all the uncooked food in our pot and let it cook. 😄. Which we did and we were promptly provided with to go containers. Plan on returning the next time we travel to Kansas City.

    We went for my daughter’s 18th birthday. This is a fun place for special occasions but I wouldn’t go for every day occasions. It’s pricey and the quality of the meat isn’t super. The rest of the food is good. Our waitress was really great and she made the meal extra special for my daughter’s birthday.

    The most underwhelming experience I have ever had. The food had no flavor but yet was somehow the smelliest thing I've ever smelled. The server did not explain how the melting pot works even though it was our first time. When we first sat down, my friend had to pick up her foot for a buser who decided that was the perfect moment to sweep under our table. We also got called about attending our reservation whilst already sitting and eating.

    We just moved to Kansas City in June. We are from Stl and have done the thursdate experience at the town and country location. We were not pleased with the service in stl and kind of gave up going for awhile. The Kansas City location is hands down way better. We sat in this cozy little nook that kind of felt like we had our own private room. Our server was the best and super attentive (I forget her name, but she needs a raise). Most importantly— the portion sizers are way more generous and actually feel like you’re getting what you paid for! We always felt that they never brought enough food before but we were both stuffed and the white chocolate with the Prosecco at the end was awesome. Melting pot really turned a Thursday night into something very romantic. I cannot wait to go back. I also cannot thank melting pot enough!!! We are relatively new to KC and I spent all summer studying for the bar exam. This was our first date afterward where we really got the chance to reconnect. THANK YOU!

    The Melting Pot in KC is a great experience. It isn't an inexpensive one by any means but it's not supposed to be. I've never had a bad visit ( out of 2 ). A perfect score is a perfect score. I highly recommend The Melting Pot for a very special night out.

    I have only been to the melting pot twice and have nothing but superb things to say. I love the servers as they’re very attentive to the customers. I love the experience of being able to cook your own food and casually dine with others. I’ve never been disappointed either time that I’ve gone. I may have found my new favorite restaurant.
