When my daughter and her friend arrived, the manager was not attentive to have them seated, had it been 2 adults they would likely have been given more respect. The manager came to our table to ask how dinner was after she left my daughter made me aware of how they did not acknowledge her or expedite seating them. They proceed to clean menus etc. before seating my daughter. Very disappointing!

Nice meal. The menu continuously changes so always different (not always do we agree that it’s a good thing) but always good food. Great portions. Nice wines list, cocktail & martini list. Decent beer selection.

Nice ambience and still a fun dining experience but portions of meat have got way smaller and the price gone up considerably since our last visit. Wait service was very good and food had a lot of flavor but the prices are frankly off-putting and allowing you complimentary extra orders of vegetables scarcely compensates.

Made our reservation at 7:45, didn't get our beverages until 8:13, food came out an hour later..our server said he would be right back with the menu for cook times and correct sauces, never did, has to go to the bar to ask for them. Worst birthday dinner I've ever has and I'm out $180.

My girlfriends and I were celebrating a birthday and arrived about 6pm for our reservation. Approached by our server, who was very polite and sweet , we were promptly served drinks and offered menus. Smooth sailing until we got two different cheeses for the three of us to share, and the portions were less than half of the serving pot. Our server promptly got more ingredients and added to the cheese that was already there, and we enjoyed salads after. Our two different cooking style broths arrived later and sat boiling in front of us for atleast 10-15 mins before we received our entrees to begin cooking our main course. Delicious food and very very fresh filet among other items. Our server seemed a bit overwhelmed, which was not his fault , however there was a lot of staff on hand and we waited from 7:30pm-8:30pm before getting dessert, which wasn’t fully heated, and we had to wait for that to heat up too with all yummy desserts to dip just making us drool as we waited. All in all, the service was just not on point this evening. We love coming to this restaurant in particular for special occasions and we will continue to return in the future, however the service issue needed to be addressed.

We’ve been eating there for 10+ years, we will never go back, when we sat down my wife asked about what was included in the meal, she was told the cheese and chocolate was with the type of meal we were getting, instead of our bill coming out to be around $120 it was almost 200, when she spoke to the manager he basically called her a liar saying that it was explained to her by the server and himself which was not true, when I called on the phone to speak to him because I had left the restaurant before she paid the bill The manager was condescending it would not work with me, so after 10+ years of going to this restaurant we will never go back, so make sure when you order a meal you actually pointed out on the menu and ask for the prices.

I was seated right away at a table with good light, as requested. Unfortunately the Server could not get the burner to work so he made my fondue in what he said was the ‘party room’? It was not made in front of me. When it was brought to me not only was it too runny, but it was fairly cool, lumpy, and grainy. When he offered to make another I should not have declined. I thought it was going to be edible, but I was wrong. I ended up leaving quite a bit in the pot. The manager had not come by. Last comment: if the burner did not work at my table, why was I not moved to another table where it did? It was early enough in the day and the dining room was fairly empty, even with the restrictions, that there were plenty of other tables with good light available. Very unhappy with this visit.

Generally our experience at the Melting Pot is very good. Not as much this time we were seated at a table for 10 as a party of 2 so that was strange, our waiter, while very friendly, was also very forgetful. We had a 7:30 reservation we did not leave until 10:00 and had not had dessert fondue just cheese with our salad and then a very long wait for our entree. As I say this has not been the norm but the hostesses were not very friendly which I wouldn’t have thought too much about if everything else was up to par. Don’t know if the restaurant has slipped or just a busy night and a kind but forgetful waiter.

We always love going to the Melting Pot for dates nights. The food is always delicious and service is usually excellent. This time, our server just seemed rather inexperienced. For instance, I asked for a glass of champagne and he responded that it was only sold by the bottle....something I know to be untrue. He was pleasant though, and relatively attentive. We will continue to keep The Melting Pot on our list for date night venues.

Poorly managed. Server told us there were only 3 servers working for the whole restaurant. We would go 15 minutes between visits by our server. Took 45 minutes before we had cheese, and another 45 before our entree. Ended up spending over 2.5 hours there for Sunday lunch, taking up pretty much the whole afternoon.

Poor service took 20 mins to get our drinks . The whole experience was horrible to the first time we were there . This was a birthday celebration and we won’t be returning to this location. We have given it 3 chances since the first time we came here 4 yrs ago and the service hasn’t improved it has gotten worse 3 strikes and I’m done

My fiancé and I came to the Melting Pot to celebrate our engagement and our anniversary. He just returned from deployment so we are excited for our date night. It was his first time to the restaurant, I have been multiple times. Overall the food was good, the service however unfortunately ruined our overall mood for the occasion. We had to wait for at least 10-15 minutes until our actual server provided waters, then another 15 minutes to place our order and drink order. After finally getting our first course (part of the 4 course meal) we still had not gotten our drinks from the bar, after asking the server she told us she forgot, and was trying to go based off memory and had to go back to the bar to order our drinks. Throughout the night the service continued with the same quality, and our night of course special because we got to spend it together but the mood and experience was less than subpar

Horrible. We made our reservation early and was never told via Open Table that the restaurant had ONLY a Valentine menu that cost almost double a regular meal (but not that special!). In addition, we were visiting from out of town and had our children with us. Normally, at Melting Pot, we order 2 entrees for the 4 of us. Well, not tonight! They wanted to charge us $70+ for each of the 4 of us. No other option available. Also, the manager told us we should have seen the menu on their website (although Open Table’s link that was emailed to us goes to the regular menu. If you search on the Melbourne Melting Pot website for the “special” menu, it does not even match what they were forcing customers to buy tonight. Tonight’s menu was at least $25 more per person than the special menu hidden on their website. We, along with 3 other couples/families that we saw leave, are very disappointed with lack of communication and extortion the restaurant is doing to their clients. We were going to deal with the menu, the table not being cleaned off all the way because she couldn’t reach the back portion but was not willing to spend $250 for a casual dinner for a family of four. We have enjoyed Melting Pot Sarasota many times but always have some sort of issue with the one in Melbourne. Tonight really took the cake.

Have almost always enjoyed my time at the Melting Pot. I am greeted by name and it is obvious they have looked at the database so I don’t have to tell them which table or Server I prefer. Since I am quite particular about the way my cheese fondue is made, this is always appreciated. This type of Service is what keeps me returning to my favorite eating establishment (The Melting Pot in Viera) time after time.

Terrible service!! For the money that you pay and expect a great time it was disappointing. She left us for 20-30 minutes at a time and didn't check back. We had to grab a knife off another table. We had to cook food with low broth that should have been added too. It ruined all the fun of the fondue. Skip this location.

Went here with a gift card for my birthday, and it was a yummy experience! I wish they actually did stuff for your birthday, though. :(

Our waiter was good, and he was training someone who was super pleasant. The food was amazing, as always! We had a hard time finishing it because it was so much! My favorite part of the 4-course experience is THE CHEESE!

We have been to other Melting Pot locations with very positive experiences. Unfortunately this location was a poor experience. Very long wait times- 20-25 minutes for drink orders even with a very quiet restaurant environment for a Tuesday evening- did not leave for over 3 hours. Wait staff was even cleaning with mops and vacuum cleaners around us during our meal since time seemed to be an issue with our orders. This was neither a romantic or enjoyable atmosphere. Entree order was incorrect multiple times- an entree item was even forgotten but still charged for. Server was unapologetic. When spending over $150 on a meal- one would expect better than average service. This is how it would be in any industry. I am not usually one to address concerns or give reviews- this experience indicated a review was necessary. Unfortunately we have no interest in coming back to this location.
