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.

It was just Friday date night! We had a lovely time here. I can't believe it's been almost 10 years ago since we've been here last. It was lovely! We had a great server and didn't want for anything.
Everything was good and we will be back again sometime soon.

We went on Easter my mother first time. Had problems with the tables with her walker. Menu was over priced then the last time. Server had to many tables so other were waiting on us. Never could get what we needed. When he finally came he was ok. With this price of a restaurant I wanted to have a good personal experience with the server. We did not have that. It felt like we multiply people instead of that one person sever. This is my favorite restaurant before will rethink again for a special occasion like that again. You would think for$250 you get better service and was next to a big party. Noise and very loud they were making fun of my mother and did not like this. Will rethink going here again no very happy for that price Of money.

Dessert dippers used to be free to add more to finish the chocolate but found this time that there was an added cost and fewer items to choose from. Still just as yummy though!
