The service here was unmatched by anything I had experienced before. Both myself and my husband had never been here before and the waitress explained everything perfectly. She also took the time to recommend her favorite items and based on what we told her she made recommendations on what we would enjoy. We will definitely be returning.

Honestly having seen the outside of the building, I was concerned that the noise level would be very high, and the ambiance would not be nice.
I was very happy to see the way they had done the inside. It reminded me of the ambiance of the original Melting pot with the low noise level, warm and cozy atmosphere and low-level lighting.
Our waiter was fantastic.
The food was wonderful. They gave you more than enough of everything, and you were allowed to cook anything that you had left over and take it home, including the chocolate.

I took my daughter and her boyfriend to Melting Pot as he loves, loves, loves your venue. His birthday had passed on March 22nd turned 19, but on that day my father in law was in the hospital and being transferred to hospice so we missed wishing him a happy birthday. He is a good guy and basically has no family. He was raised by legal guardians as his parents are not in his life. I felt the need to make sure that he had a birthday celebration because I do appreciate the love that he gives my daughter. I am so grateful for him in her life. I have 3 sons of my own and happy to welcome the 4th! We had a very good time at Melting Pot it was my husband and I first time there and it was a very nice experience. Paige our hostess was very patient with answering all out questions. I would definitely recommend your restaurant. Thank you for a great dining experience!

Great venue for special occasions. Would not necessarily recommend for daily dining due to the expense. 4-course meal with 1 drink each, including tip, figure about $100/person.

Wanted to try this place and I did. And didn’t I like it not really. I cook at home I had to cook here. If I would of known I was cooking my own food I would of cook at home. Now the place was nice and so was the staff.. Our waitress was slow
But nice. The price was crazy expensive for something I’m cooking myself and for a small amount of food. I offense but I will not be back and I wouldn’t recommend it. Check mark off my restaurant I been to..!! Thanks

Too much wine in the cheese fondue, had to change it out for the broth version. Way overpriced, for the small amount of food you get. With what you got, i wouldnt have spent more than $30-35 dollars for 2 people. The 8 sauce types that come with, were awful. No steak sauce or standard cocktail sauce was offered. No way to clean the griddle, after cooking some of the food...so the remaining food that was cooked low standard. Lemonade was not that good. Best part of the meal, was the chocolate fondue, which was not that much. Last time i came to the Melting Pot, was when it was still open in Maitland...and those visits, were above average and great. Was hoping my son would have had a better experience on his first visit there.

Our server, Renee, was HORRIBLE!!! We ordered 2 entrees, cheese and chocolate. She was uncooperative and RUDE!!! She kept pushing us to order more and was nasty when we asked for extra veggies, etc..... as if we were putting her out. Had to ask twice just to get sweet - n- low and she never came back to refill drinks. But, while we were still eating, wanted to know what our chocolate order would be and tried to take the cheese while we were still eating. I finally said to her, "Please don't rush us," we'd like to enjoy our meal. It was beyond ridiculous. Then, when we asked for more mushrooms she said that would be an additional $4.99. We'll go to Colorado Fondue from now on. Certainly don't appreciate that type of service when we're putting out $100. That's a lot for us and we only do it once or twice a year. She had an attitude as soon as we presented our Entertainment coupon. Apparently, that indicated to her that the bill would not be big enough for her. Really ridiculous.

My daughter and I went to celebrate her 21st birthday. Our server David, was very friendly and knowledgeable. He made us feel comfortable and was so attentive even though he had other tables. The cheese fondue was creamy and delicious, the proteins looked and tasted fresh and the chocolate fondue was a decadent ending to our celebration dinner.

First time experience but not the last! This was the first time I'd experienced the restaurant and all it's charm, but be warned, you better come hungry. there are more ways to enjoy the meal than I had imagined. luckily I was with a group who had a long history with the Melting Pot so I was not flying blind. Our Server was every patient and knowledgeable about our needs, process and certainly the food. Definitely recommend the four course menu.

The food is always cooked to your liking, of course, because you cook it yourself. However, the pricing is similar to what you would pay in a restaurant where the food is cooked for you. So for that reason, I rated it lower on "value." It would also be helpful if there were table lights to help "see" how far along the cooking is. Especially for the teriyaki chicken, it was hard, if not impossible, to visually see that it was done cooking. But those are very minor issues and I would still recommend The Melting Pot to anyone - especially if you order the $10 rose pedal splash on the table; very romantic!!

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.
