    The server was very young, would ask how we were doing every other bite, we couldn’t enjoy our meal she was to much! Then we told our little onw she had to wait for chocolate until after the meal ans she undermined us and brought her marshmallows while we had meat. I was livid. After this 3 year old that didn’t eat a bit of anything (except the marshmallows we did ask for) was charged $29.95 for her chocolate helping. SHE DIDNT EAT! we had to leave to talk so we weren’t Interupted every other bite. Special occasion and we couldn’t wait to get out of their so she would leave us alone. $300! So sad it was my 3 girls first time at fondue and memorable, not at all. I’m so disappointed.

    We enjoyed the 4 course meal very much. The appetizers with cheese all tasted great, and paired perfectly. The meats were amazing too. My favorite meats were the filet and chicken. Sauces I loved were curry, teriyaki, and green goddess. All the desserts were good. Service was top notch too.

    Our waiter was obnoxious and rude. Too pushy and ruined the graduation celebration we had we our son. Drink and food orders were inconsistent. Lastly, he over rushed us through the entire meal. Very disappointed. We love Melting Pot but doubt we’ll go back to this location.

    Absolutely loved the melting pot! It was a special treat! I didn’t realize they charge you the prix fixe even if everyone doesn’t want all 4 courses but think it works out cheaper that way anyway. It was expensive but worth it. Look forward to going back. Loved the spinach artichoke cheese and steak lovers the best!

    We took our daughter to The Melting Pot for the first time. She has a wonderful experience. The server provided exceptional service. The food was great and they’ve made some updates since last time we were there. There are more items on the dessert tray than before, and they were happy to refill items if we ran out. Great experience!

    By no fault of the restaurant, the noise level and rude, obnoxious behavior of a large party intruded on what is usually a lovely experience. They acted like they were at a rowdy sports bar-yelling, cursing, being verbally aggressive. The manager visited us to apologize, but there was little he could do. This will certainly not prevent us from visiting again-the other aspects of our visit we’re wonderful! Our server Caleb was spot-on and the food was scrumptious as always.

    We have been to the Melting Pot multiple times. We enjoy the staff engaging in conversation. Our experience last night was not of past visits. Our server was very nice, but very robotic and did not listen. We would ask for additional apples for the cheese and her response is that she will bring another whole platter. We ordered a soda that never came. We ordered a moscow mule that took 25 minutes to bring. We asked for more of a specific sauce and she brought another tray of all sauces. Dessert was even more odd. We always order the flaming turtle for dessert. She plopped down the chocolate and lit the flame. The staff typically allows us to toast the marshmallows. We had no utensils, no plates, no dippers. She then went and dumped the nuts. We always have the nuts on the side and is typically asked first if it is ok to dump the nuts into the chocolate. We really do enjoy the melting pot, this was just a very unusual experience for us.

    My fiancé and I went for Valentine’s dinner. The food was good, but nothing to write home about. I understand you pay for the experience, but when your waitress only visits the table to deliver the food and they get a $34 tip that is included on the already $170 tab, I don’t quite understand why it’s so expensive. Over $200 for two people was definitely not worth it. The fact that online mentions a $94 four course meal for two, yet nothing is said about the nearly double price for Valentine’s Day makes me feel like I got ripped off. Especially when you only get two options for your entree. Decent experience, but we won’t be returning. I’d definitely rather spend that kind of money somewhere else.
