Our server, Nick, was fabulous! However, the birthday party if screaming children ruined our evening... we were celebrating my Mother’s birthday. The kids were screaming, yelling, running through the restaurant with no shoes on, it was ridiculous! It was like being at Chucks Cheese! We were so disappointed.

We've loved eating at The Melting Pot before; it was a favorite for special occasions. This time we were quite disappointed with the significantly smaller portion sizes and inflated prices. Our meal was easily over $100 more than previous times, and we left still hungry. The service was great - our waiter was very attentive, but we will likely not be back as the value is not there. We also felt rushed during the meal - Melting Pot used to be a long, relaxed experience, allowing for great conversation and encompassing the entire evening. This time was just slightly longer than a typical sit-down restaurant, similar quality food to a good chain restaurant, but at over 3 times the cost.

We were celebrating my wife’s birthday and had called ahead and notified the Melting Pot. We’ve eaten here many times before and never had service as bad as we did this night. Our server would leave to get a plate because he didn’t bring enough and not stop back by for 10 minutes and then forget he was even supposed to bring it. When our sauces were brought out there wasn’t enough to even cover the bottom of the small containers they come in. Wa ask for additional sauce and about the time we were finished we received them. These were barely 1/4 of the way full. Not sure if this was the servers fault or if Melting Pot is try to cut back. We have noticed the the quality and quantity of food has diminished over the last couple years. No more special occasions at Melting Pot!!!

We went around 6:30 and got out at closing. It was quiet. The waiter, Jordan, was friendly, knowledgeable about the food, and was on top of our table’s needs. The food as always was fresh and filling. We had the 4 course meal packages. The kids enjoyed the experience and tried different foods that they may normally not try at home.

The service was amazing! Our waiter was very funny and personable. The food was decent- I’m a vegetarian and was pleased with the options!! However.. I don’t think the artichokes do very well when cooked! I chose the white cheddar truffle cheese, and was less than impressed... I didn’t care for the white wine base. Also, please give more bread for dipping!! My boyfriend hogged it all, lol!
