Fondue
Bring your big appetite to the big city. In downtown Minneapolis, The Melting Pot is your quintessential fine-dining restaurant. Start with freshly made salads and handcrafted dressings before you skewer succulent strips of steak, and finish the smorgasbord with our famous chocolate fondue. Desserts rank high here, and just like the complex taste of our entrées, there’s something to be said of our artisan cheeses and luscious chocolates. But in our cozy corner of dessert paradise, we’re more than just a classy addition to Minnesota’s culinary scene. We are casual and approachable, which makes us an excellent choice for reconnecting with long-lost friends, updating loved ones about your life, or simply breaking the ice on a romantic date.

    We went with friends, all for the first time from out of town and had a great experience! We chose the Wisconsin cheddar first course and all had a variety of entree choices with the Mojo fondue option. We shared the flaming turtle dessert and it was amazing, highly recommend!!!

    Excellent Staff, the cocktails were amazing (Try the BomPop) and the food was over the top. The lobster tail and the Teriyaki Sirloin were standouts among all the amazing options. Try the Turtle chocolate fondue, you won’t be disappointed.

    If one has never done authentic French or Swiss Fondue pretty good. Cheese fondue was lacking in flavor and chocolate fondue was pretty poor. Service was outstanding. Sangria severely overpriced.

    It's a fun experience, but overpriced. Almost $350 (with tip) for dinner for 4 (2 were teenagers). For that price, I expect a much better ambiance and higher quality food. There were many 2-pot tables open, but they sat us at a 1-pot table, which required we choose the same cheese, chocolate and cooking style for all of us.

    We like to come here on date nights because they are so rare for us lol. Our server Anthony was amazing and knowledgeable and checked on us regularly. The cheese fondue was delicious and our salads were fresh and a good size. The meats (we chose the classic) were well seasoned and great size pieces. I was full leading up to dessert but once the chocolate and assortment of marshmallows fruit and brownies came out I couldnt resist. Can’t wait for our next date night here!

    Sunday kids eat free. Child's chocolate milk is $3.95. Got charged $6.00 for it even after telling the server about kids eat free and about the overcharged choc.milk. She took off the kids meal, but didn't change the chocolate milk price.
