We came here before a concert last weekend. Was the best experience, we drove straight from Omaha to there, and honeslty I would drive back anyday. Good staff who is very knowledgeable about the menu and how things work.

Waiter was great, always made sure we had everything we needed. Always checking to see if he could get us something to make the night relaxing and more enjoyable.

Turns out we were his first table ever to serve at The Melting Pot. He had a good energy about him. Very pleasant night and service

We love this location, but it just wasn’t as good as it usually is. The service was just okay, we didn’t get seated in a quiet spot (even though I told them it was for an anniversary), it smelled a little strange coming in. It just seemed dirtier than normal. Our service was good, but he didn’t show us any personality.

Went for date night and it was great!!! We shared our date night dinner with each other so we could have several different meats. Left there very full! Our server was the sweetest. Gave us a plate that has date night wrote on it with our dessert add complimentary champagne!! Great place for couples to enjoy trying new things!

We love the melting pot.. it is great for celebritions of all kinds! This trip we were having one last family meal as we say goodbye to our oldest child moving abroad, middle child was home from college for the weekend and youngest being a senior in high school .. we've had birthdays and weddings and all kinds of wonderful life events that have been not properly celebrated during the pandemic. The experience is amazing as we had 2 burners at our table and we're able to sample many offerings. While the older of the party sampled wine the almost old enough s enjoyed virgin cocktails. The staff was amazing and knowledgeable. The atmosphere was perfect and not too crowded. The only complaint we had was the table next to us , a woman and 3 young children , one of which had a terrible cough . This was NOT the best choosing for that group. It is too much food for little humans , and not really a child friendly environment , however the staff did perfect helping them figure out the best solution to enjoy their dinner as well. Never the less ...just take your small children someplace better suited for them and leave this one for the grown ups to enjoy a fancy meal. Please. We paid $400 for this experience. Al.ist worth every penny had it not been for the constant hacking from the table next to us.

Always love the melting pot. Excellent food and definitely fills you up. We splurged and got chocolate fondue for dessert, but thankfully they were able to box up most of it because we were wiped. Justice was a great server.

I always love visiting the Melting Pot! It's been a staple for my visits to Kansas City. The service has typically been very good, so I've always been eager to return. The only part I'm dissatisfied with is the tables themselves. I think this location could use a "facelift". I sat at a wobbly table with wobbly chairs, and the last time the booth had a cut in the seat. I think it might be time for some repairs.

We had first timers in our party and wanted to give them the best experience. Were first sat at a single burner. Requested to be moved to a double. They made that work and was quite an experience for them. Appreciate the flexibility of the team. Might ask that question when making reservation.

Arrived at our reserved time and were seated almost immediately. Michael was our waiter and for the most part was very attentive. He explained the menu to us pretty well and explained the process well for each course however, his explanation of the protein course was ran through pretty quickly but we got the jest of it. It was our 1st time at a Melting Pot and it was a fun experience but I think if we were to do it again we would probably do the bread fondue and desert fondue and skip the protein course. It was a 2.5 hour experience so plan on being there for awhile but overall, we would do it again.

My husband and I went for a date night, we'd been years before and wanted to try it again. The place looks like it needs a remodel, the bannister on the stairs was sticky, carpet was worn and the booths looked outdated. The drinks were good and our waiter was nice, however service was slow. We spent a little over three hours there. I went to the ladies room and saw that a party of 5 that was still waiting to be seated as we walked to our table already had their main course as we waited for ours. When the check came I paid without reviewing it because it was getting so late I didn't want to risk waiting another 20-30 minutes before our server returned.... We arrived at 630 and it was after 10pm before we got home, I have NO IDEA why it took so long, the place wasn't packed.

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.
