This was our first time but definitely will not be our last. A very unique experience. Far too much food. We split a combo and added a second lobster tail and had loads of food for two

I've always loved this restaurant and especially this location. This occasion was a letdown. The server was difficult to find but was very friendly when she was with us. We asked for "night out for two", the only course that was adjusted was her bringing a second salad. When we mentioned it, she said it was too late to fix.

The Melting Pot is always great. We also had the BEST server--Laycee. She was really fun and interesting. Good idea to ask for her by name--it will seriously improve your meal--which is already really good!

Dinner was great, service was slow. Came in at 6pm and left at 9pm on a school night. We weren't looking to spend a maximum of 2 hours.

Great venue and experience. Wine flight is a great value and goes perfectly with the meal. Service was good, they were busy and you could tell but nothing to ruin the night.

Super fun evening - fondue was tasty, setting was unique and interesting and service was excellent - attentive but not rushed. It was a great outing for adults and kids. Only downside was there was no signal inside - might be nice to set up a WiFi hotspot as some guests need access in case kids/babysitters need to contact them. Great experience overall!

Mediocre at best. Throwback to bad 80s food. Safeway-like prepared food served up as restaurant food. Not worth the money. Would not recommend.

All was good but we had made a reservation and when we got there the two girls had us sit by the door for 25 mins even tho the re were lots of empty tables and very few showed up after us . I say there were about 80 percent empty. They should not have those two run the front deck.
Our waiter was great,he saved us or we would not have come back.

There was a straw wrapper in my cup of water and I didn’t even have a straw. The waiter gave me a dirty plate and was not nice when I asked for a new one.

We've been coming here the last couple of years for our anniversary and it's really great! This year, we had an early reservation. Although the "back" area was not open yet, the Matradee was very kind and opened it up so we could have a private table for two, which is what we wanted for our anniversary and part of why we go there. Our server, Alex, was super awesome and made this year's experience quite special. Some may find the menu a little pricey, but the experience is well worth it. I would highly recommend the Melting Pot for any couple looking for a romantic dining experience. Cheers!

The fondue experience is wonderful. We always have the four course extravaganza. Don't miss out on any of the courses, just pace yourself! There is something for everyone - any kind of meat, poultry, fish or vegetables. Finish the evening with the Grand Marnier fondue, even if you are sure you can't eat another bite. Trust me.

I wish they had an option for a party of 8 to sit at a table and not a booth. We opted for 2 tables of 4 because a booth is not comfortable unless everyone is very petite.
