Paolo (sp?) was our server. This is our 7th time there. You made our anniversary dinner special.

It was not my favorite experience I've had with The Melting Pot. Our server seemed like she was having a "bad day". Regarding the ambiance, for that amount of money, it could be more formal.

We typically come a a couple times a month for the Mon Tue Wed special. The way they’ve changed it now and made all the choices for you with mediocre options makes me want to find another option. We definitely don’t love it like we used to. The service is stellar, as always...but the food, meh.

This was for my daughters birthday, and it was a wonderful celebration. Our waitress, Sarah, was an outstanding waitress. Very attentive and helpful and friendly. Would definitely come back to the melting pot and recommend it and the waitress Sarah to others.

This is a great place to go if you want to be able to visit and actually hear yourselves. This was a birthday celebration for my daughter and granddaughter and they loved it. That Alpine cheese fondue should be illegal it is so good!

Paulo was amazing. The manager was also stopping by tables regularly to check in and seemed very involved- we complimented Paulo as our drinks were never empty, he was constantly checking in and always ensuring we didn’t need more of something- very pleasant experience. We dine here often and will request Paulo when available!

They need more servers/waiters. Had to wait a long time between courses because our server had many tables.
Also they've cut back on food. Giving more bread and less vegetables

My evening at Melting Pot started out quite slow. Our server, Sarah, was very polite and took our order in a timely manner. However, it took 20 minutes to get straws for our drinks. After the cheese fondue, we had to wait about 29 minutes after we finished this course for Sarah to come to the table and confirm what we ordered, which meant that it was never put in the system. Our salads were late

I spoke to the manager. He was extremely kind and offered to take off our order if we didn't want to stay, or offer us another server. We chose a new server, David, who was very attentive the entire rest of our meal.

I am very happy with the way the situation was handled with both the manager and David. The manager also comped our chocolate course.

Despite a rough beginning, the experience was positive and the atmosphere was impressive.

We always look forward to going to the Melting Pot for special occasions and evenings out. We have been going there for years and usually have a wonderful time. However, this time was a huge disappointment. The service was extremely slow and below par. We had to consistently wait for her to return and ask for thing numerous times, before they would actually be delivered. In addition, we feel like the qualify of food and their portions have gone done significantly since our last visit. Is this a cost savings measure? Is there new management? Or was the kitchen just off? Not sure!

We were literally disappointed with everything (Caesar salad, cheese fondue, entree, and chocolate fondue). I hope they really work on making significant improvements or we will have to find a different place to celebrate special occasions and for special evenings out.

It was an off night and not the usual experience. I paid extra for rose petals and candles real pretty. But the table was dirty. Not the first this has happened to me at this melting pot. The one in Tampa is always nice but I don’t get over there very often. It’s hit or miss with the Altamonte one. Great experience 70% of the time. Not so great this last time. Romantic couple facing two loud women complaining about men. There was a better table that no one sat in. The chocolate fondue never got hot or warm. The waitress forgot the fork to stir the cheese fondue so she borrowed mine promising to bring me a new one but she forgot and left me forkless. The manager did come by the other table of men haters and was real chatty with them adding to the lack of ambiance. It will be a while before I come back. I have been wanting to try the Colorado fondue near Redbug and 436. I will probably give them a try nex time.

I don’t like to make a scene. I shouldn’t have to. Not even 30% of the time. So I didn’t.

Food is absolutely amazing. Along with the pleasant activity of tasting the food, you are provided the task of cooking it individually to your own liking. But don’t worry, it isn’t difficult whatsoever. Your evening is bound to be filled with fun and enlightening conversations while you’re enjoying the meal, which can be lengthy, yet you find yourself leaving there wondering when you can return. I reccommend all who has access to the restaurant to visit it, so you too can have as great a night as I did.

My boyfriend and I went for just a normal date night and we had such a nice time. Our server Lauren was fabulous! She was very attentive, knowledgeable, funny, friendly and patient. All good things to have as a customer service person. If it wasn't so pricy, we would go there all the time but it is nice to go once in a blue moon.

This visit to the Longwood location was excellent. Although we had arrived 30 minutes early, they got us in and seated within a few minutes of arrival. Our waiter was excellent and was knowledgeable as to what broth to use for our meal. Additionally although not requested they provided us with a complimentary flute of Champaign to top off the dinner.

We enjoyed cooking our own food. Drinks were great. It was very intimate with the lighting and low noise levels. I recommend this place for couples and family time. Great experience overall at this location!

We do Fondue several times a year as this is one of my daughters favorite places to eat. The ambiance was candlelight romantic fairly close to Valentine's day and the restaurant buzzed with people. Portion sizes for the Classic Meats and Wisconsin cheddar on the 4 course experience were ample and the selection was tasty. We love the candied pecans on the California salad which is excellent. While the amount of dessert chocolate relative to the amount of dipping items felt disproportionately small, the chocolate was heavenly. The only issue was the server who was young and sweet but constantly rushed the evening by taking plates and food when we were clearly not finished. This restaurant is good for date nights, group outings and those craving a unique dining adventure. Overall, if not rushed, we recommend Melting Pot for a fun, non-traditional, culinary experience.

The ambiance is very clean but somewhat too brown. It took a while for somebody to greet us at our table and for my husband to get his drink. The menu is a bit complicated, and I felt badly that we didn’t finish each corse (wasted food). I wish there were lighter options available because the portions are too large to finish. I think that there could’ve been a separate chicken sauce when compared to shrimp. The sweet sauce was by far the best!
