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.

Melting pot remains a very unique place to eat. Restaurant week gives nice variety of food at a very fair price. All food was excellent.

Cheese course and dessert are very good. Dinner is okay. Service was very poor. Sat between cheese and dinner course for 20 minutes with no drinks. Salads were forgotten. Not at all impressed for $200 for 2 people

Our daughter picked this for her birthday choice, and I notes it on the reservation. We also mentioned it to the host as well as to the server, but there was nothing offered, not even her non-alcoholic beverage.

Dinner was great but at the end the server forgot that my daughters boyfriend has a severe egg allergy (he had checked earlier to see if the breads had egg in them) and served us a chocolate fondu option with egg in it. After we had started enjoying the dessert he realized it and rushed to tell us, but it was too late. He expressed his apologies but no manager appeared and I wonder if it was reported. The bill was not changed, nor did we ask it to be, but I was a very disappointing ending to what had been a fun and yummy meal.

Great for going with one other person!! It is pretty pricey so I couldn’t imaging paying for a family meal. Service was great and it was an amazing memory to make with my boyfriend! We would love to go back!! It was roughly $140 for us to eat (plus one drink) and we left full and happy!

Wonderful!! We had an amazing time celebrating four birthdays, one graduation, one anniversary, Fathers Day, etc. We don’t usually spend this much money on a meal, but it was all so delicious and definitely an experience we will remember fondly for years to come. Thank you to our server, Chris. She was fantastic!

Had an amazing experience - way cooler even than expected. Loved cooking everything and being able to eat at your own pace... that being said it is a long meal if you do all 4 courses. The turtle chocolate fondue was heavenly as was the teriyaki marinated sirloin. Appreciated the staff wearing masks and that social distancing was in effect. Felt safe and well taken care of. Will definitely return!

There is something fun about fondue! My husband and myself celebrated two years together by going to this restaurant. We’ve been to one prior to this in California. Just like the California Melting Pot, it was a wonderful experience. We got seated in a booth with a privacy curtain. It was very intimate and comfortable. There were lots of options for food. Everything we ordered was delicious and tasty. A little pricey but worth it!

We love the Melting Pot and go every time we visit the cities, it was very good this time as well, however we did have to wait when we had a reservation so that is the only thing I did not like.

This was our first time at a Melting Pot restaurant. The first impression is the interior is drab and boring. The concept is fun, especially for a family. The service was excellent. Our server was attentive, helpful, very nice and just overall really good at her job. That’s always a plus to have an excellent server. The food was really good too. We enjoyed the cheese fondue, the salads, the main courses and the desert fondue. We had Cajun chicken, different varieties of filet and some ravioli. All of it was tasty. The only downside to this place is we thought it was quite expensive all things considered. Party of four with two adults and two teenagers with only one glass of wine and three sodas between us and the bill was $240. We eat out lots as a family and so we are very familiar with the costs of going out to dinner. We loved the whole experience but we are unlikely to return as the costs outweigh the enjoyment.
