We haven't been to the melting pot for about 10 years so it was fun to go again for restaurant week. The server was friendly and even though we arrived pretty early for our reservation they sat us quickly. Food was good and we had a lot of fun.

This place is just a fun experience. To have 3 different fondues and not have to make it all myself is so worth it. My family had a fun time and we giggled and ate way too much. Worth the money for a 4 course meal.

Have been before and this visit was the best! Server was great & explained everything even gave us some new ideas to try. Very attentive. Definitely going back. My favorites were the cheese fondue & the chocolate fondue. Would love to return just for that.

We have a WONDERFUL experience!!! It was Restaurant Week and our server, Bailey, and her trainee were so kind and attentive to us! They made us a plate (see pic) for Restaurant Week and even brought us a champagne toast! The food was excellent, as always, and the service was above and beyond! My only small gripe would be that we were seated close to the door and every time it opened a gust of cold air would hit me Otherwise, an excellent dinner!!!

Went for restaurant week and had the pick 3 special.
Food was very good, nice portion sizes and fruit & veggies were very fresh. The bacon cheddar fondue was amazing. Highly recommend the S’mores fondue.

Had terrific service…our server was polite and answered all our questions and explained everything. I know a lot of restaurants are understaffed and the service industry jac taken a hit but Melting Pot has great food and even better service.

It’s pricey, yes… but the specialized equipment and cleanup you would need to do this at home make up for it.

The variety and quality of the food is truly mind blowing.

I was kind of hoping for a Euro-vibe… it felt more like a fancy American restaurant… that’s fine.

Fun experience- the food is just ok. The desert is GREAT. The meat is not. Would go again during restaurant week or happy hour- but not for a full priced menu.

Unique experience! Wide variety of food to try. For those that think they will not get enough to eat, they are wrong. Food was wonderful and a fun experience. Do plan to be there for a few hours as it takes awhile to go through all the courses. Thoroughly enjoyed ourselves!

We were seated immediately upon arrival and our service was fine. The food was a great disappointment. May have been the worst fondue I have eaten. The wine list needs an update.

Took our kids out for a dinner there during KC’s Restaurant Week. The kids loved every minute of the whole dining experience. Our server, Teresa, was phenomenal. She went above and beyond asking us if we needed anything more throughout each course. Our drinks were never empty. The kids are already asking when we can go back. Thank you for a great dinner experience. We will be back!!

Everything was wonderful and then there was a leak from the ceiling. We told our server, she immediately moved us. Manager came to check on us. Things happen and we understand that. They went the extra mile to take care of us. Best customer service we’ve seen in along time. Will definitely make this one of our favorite restaurants from now on.

our meat course did not cook due to hot pad malfunction that we were unaware of until towards the end of the course when our server came back questioning if the pot ever came to a boil

We had the 5 course New Years Eve special. It was fantastic. Everything from the greeting at reception to our waiter, to the food was delicious. After eating at some of the best restaurants in the U.S., it was nice to have not just good food -- but an entire dining experience. It was a wonderful way to celebrate the new year. The lobster in the Mojo boil -- AMAZING!

Took the family for Christmas Eve dinner. What a horrible experience! It took at least 30 minutes between each course, no drink refills, No checking on us. We had at least five different waiters. I had the wine pairing and had to ask every time for my wine. And for it late or after I was done with a course. We waited 45 minutes for someone to come see us for our chocolate course choice. Finally got a manager 3 hours in who gave us $30 off a $250 meal. Will be a very long time before we go back or recommend to anyone. Other families came in after us, ate a full four course meal and left before us. The manager argued with me that they only had chocolate. Whatever. So disappointed.

Went for 2:30 reservations waitress was no where most of our meal. Had long waits between each course. Took over 2 hours for standard meal. When I asked waitress to please bring out the dessert and check she got an attitude. When bill finally came we were charged for an alcohol drink for our teenager.

Melting Pot has always treated my fiancée and I extremely well every time we have went there.This last time we went we had mentioned we were on a date and they gave us the cutest decorative plate and complimentary Shirley Temples.

Everything we have tried has always been amazing and the waiters and waitresses have always been phenomenal. You wouldn't be able to go to a better restaurant .

My goodness it was awful. Just terrible.

We went for a holiday "treat" for dessert after some time out on the Plaza. We were cracking up laughing only 5 minutes in - not out of joy - but at just how awful the experience was.

You descend the stairs as if entering a dungeon. It's dark. There are many small hallways as though they're trying to trap you inside. Then there's the smell. There a stink of everyone's different table cooking something different in different kinds of spices and oils and cheeses. There's a greasy fog wafting over everything. It not only permeated our coats and clothing... it permeated our souls.

On top of that, it's incredibly expensive. A dinner for two would cost more than $100. Our dessert of chocolate fondu and a few crumbs of rice krispy and brownie, maybe 3 strawberries and some sliced pineapple ended up costing > $50.

We'll remember this outing for a long time... but won't be going back.
