    Our waitress was awful. She treated us like we were a burden to her. I order the lemonade with Bacardi and she gave me just the lemonade. When I asked her about it she said she gave me the correct drink but she would double check with the bartender. When she came back with our salads she said nothing about my drink until we asked about it and she said oh yeah, it’s the right drink and went on her way. Then when we were ordering our entrees, off of the fixed menu, she wasn’t clear that when we ordered it was for each of us and not the table. We said we wanted to sub steak for shrimp and when we got our individual plates two of the three had shrimp. WE actually apologized that WE misunderstood and asked if she wouldn’t mind subbing the shrimp for steak on the two meals. She took the plates (annoyed), came back saying the kitchen fixed them when she actually just took the shrimp off of them without putting steak on instead. It’s a good thing none of us are allergic! She really put a damper on our Mother’s Day celebration. For the amount of money we paid, the service was really just terrible!

    The waitress was friendly and did a great job. It was super slow overall though. Too slow. While you want to have a slower van fence to enjoy the full experience, 3 hours seems a bit long. I would recommend for the experience along though.

    The Melting Pot - LyndhurstResponded on April 5, 2022

    Thank you very much for your review as we appreciate the feedback. We're happy that your waitress did a great job and that you'd recommend us too. However, we're sorry to hear that you felt the overall experience was a little slow. While four course can take some time we also want to be respectful to our guests time too and will endeavor to keep the pace just right.

    It was my daughters birthday she asked to go to the Melting Pot. We had been there in the past, but this was by far the best visit we have had to date. The service was amazing, we never waited for anything and the staff often checked in on us to ensure we had everything we needed. The duck was amazing and my kids both wanted more of the pot stickers. Truly one of the best dining experiences we have had in quite a while!

    Our reservation was for 7:30. We weren't seated until 8:36. The food now is expensive. $99 for 2. The quality is not great. Service was extremely slow. It took almost an hour to get our dessert. We asked if they were short staffed. They were not. They just overbooked reservations. Would not recommend unless you have 31/2 hours to hang out for mediocre food.

    Probably the worst dining experience my husband and I have ever had. We waited over 30 minutes for a waiter to come to our table, once the broth arrived it sat cooking in the table for 20 minutes and when we finally got our food the broth was so hot that it burned most of our food. This was having it in the broth for less than a minute. It was popping and spitting the broth on our hands and the table. I’ve been to a different melting pot location prior to this and we encountered nothing like this. We showed our waiter and they brought us a new pot. However at this point we were pretty over the experience, bc we dealt with the overly hot pot for 20 more minutes before our waiter checked on us again. Just very expensive for a bad experience and dinner.

    I had a reservation 6 weeks in advance for 2/12/21. Our party of 4 had to wait over an hour for a table. We stood the entire time. The hostess was overwhelmed (not her fault) but she was rude and dismissive. She told me an hour and 5 minutes into our wait that our party was “next” to be seated. Every time I checked to see the status, she kept asking me “what’s your name again?” A party of 6 got seated at “our turn”-they arrived after us and our reservation was at 7, theirs was at 7:45 (yes we asked). They were seated at 8:10! I asked to speak to the manager. The hostess rolled her eyes at me after being short with me for daring to state my frustration and stating she said we were next and sat a party That had only waited 30 minutes and not an hour and 15 min like my party. It was a holiday weekend and they were overbooked. It was not the hostess fault and not one time was I rude or abrasive, I was just asking for updates, misinformed, and treated rudely and she needs better coping skills and customer service education during times of high volume. The manager was accommodating and our waiter was attentive and professional. I was upset that the menu for the night and the price was not advertised on the website for the Valentine’s Day weekend. After waiting over an hour and being treated poorly. I would not have paid $75 a person but we were all so hungry by 8:30 pm, we just stayed. We were each given a 2oz glass of complimentary champagne for our troubles. One of the people in my party didn’t drink. Overall it was a very disheartening experience, and I will never eat there again.

    We’ve been to Melting Pot many times are were excited to celebrate my daughters 16th birthday there. This experience this time was awful. Service was terrible. The table behind us was also a table of 8, got there 20 minutes after us and got their food (with an extra salad course) significantly before us. Our server was nowhere to be found the entire meal. The “dippers” are supposed to be endless, but when your server never returns it’s nearly impossible to get more. My husband actually walked through the restaurant several times looking for her. I totally understand that everyone has staffing issues, but when you pay $600 for dinner I expect better. Portions have gotten smaller in my opinion, I used to leave there full, last night we left barely satisfied.
