    Our usual special occasion dining out spot went a little down hill. Service was slow and lackluster for the price point. Food was fine as always but nothing really special.

    Food is just ok and very expensive for the quality. The cuts of meat were good, but you’re not getting wagyu steak. It is, however, the experience you are paying for. Service was great, and the whole experience was a great way to spend time with the family!

    Reservation was for 7:30pm. We checked in at 7:15. We were seated at 8pm. This is not unusual. We are here a month ago and we were seated 60 minutes after our reservation time. Plan accordingly for later evening reservations. Service was not great. A wine split was delivered with no glass. Vodka mile ordered and delivered 30 minutes later. We had a table with 2 burners. While one fondue was being made the burner for the second pot was on too high. Water evaporated before, causing a delay. Salad with no tomato came with tomato’s. Main course dropped off and we did not see our server until dessert. Management never stopped by to check-in. I did speak with management.Restaurant is going through turnover. I would tell the Melting Pot to reduce the number of reservations so ensure on time seating and overall happier customers and staff.

    Absolutely TERRIBLE!! The GM said we had 2 choices: 1 enjoy our meal or 2 leave, we left. We had 4 people with different tastes & ask for a table with 2 burners. We even ask for a 2 smaller tables. This was for a birthday dinner. The GM would not be quiet for one minute to see if we could come up with a solution. When we ask for her name all we got was Good Night , Good Night, Good Night but I think her name is Cindy older lady. No the blonde haired lady and not the young girls at the front. Do better!

    The food was great, the hostess must have been having a bad night she was rude and short tempered, whatever was on her phone seemed to be more important than reading my reservation or sitting us down. Wasn’t a good start. The server was great though and the food was good.

    While normally, we have an incredible experience. And great food.  I was highly disappointed since we were sat at a table that had a leak from the vent in the ceiling which kept dripping on our food. The server was great and very embarrassed for us they couldn’t move us to another table and while the steam from the fondue created even more of an atmospheric disaster the entire ceiling was dripping into our food. I am disappointed because the manager never even came over to ask us how they could help or even move us for dessert, which we never had because when the server put the chocolate down a bunch of drips from the ceiling, got into the food, we decided to leave .. after 23 years of going there I don’t think we’ll be going back. If you get seated in the back where the water is dripping down the walls and ceiling just say no.

    Went for Valentine’s Day and it was so special! Even with a reservation we had to wait an hour, but it was fine! We just went to a nearby bar until they called us for our reservation. Great drinks and our table was super private!

    Everything was great, the only problem we had was the condensation dripping from the roof into our pot! Service was great but definitely will ask to be seated in a different spot next time!
