amazing! the food was so great! the experience was awesome! so glad we went there for our anniversary dinner(:
Celebrated our anniversary here. Food and ambiance was great. Server was fantastic!
Food was amazing, unfortunately we did not have a lot of time so we couldn't finish the 4 course meal, the waiter suggested giving us a gift card for the dessert, definitely we are going back to redeem it!!
Had a good dinner, but service was very slow, left us waiting and looking around for a while. Then when finished we were left even longer waiting for our check. Would not go back but rather hot up other cheaper fondue places in Portland.
Service was great. Dessert was the best part.
Absolutely terrible. Reserved as a date, got stuck in the back and forgotten (I guess we weren’t fancy enough to sit with everyone else and have cheese dip). Manager went to every table except ours, and if took 2 hours to have some cheese dip and salad for $130. We weren’t even able to wave anyone down for glasses of water the whole time, and left before dessert. Terrible, horrible experience, I’d never recommend to anyone I know.
Great service and a wonderful date. Will go back again!
Everything was great, but it would be nice to get our drinks refilled without asking and waiting 15 minutes. Otherwise everything was great
Daddy-Daughter date night. Brooke was a great waitress. She helped us make our dining decisions and made it a fun experience for us.
Great food and great server - Brooke! Always checked in, but not too much and was able to give us extra dippers when we had too much fondue. A bit distracting being near the kitchen but had a great time in a little pocket away from everyone.
It was amazing and I seven year old son loved dipping his food.
The Melting Pot is great for the experience of having fondue if you have never done it, however, beware that it is extremely overpriced.
A melting pot is very formulaic and has had success based on this formula. You pretty much know what you're getting into when you go here. We went here for my son's 9th birthday and we all enjoyed it.
We had a great time. Ophelia took great care us and made our 12 year old daughter’s first time very enjoyable and easy for her. We enjoy The Melting Pot and this visit was no exception. Great food. Great fun. Great time.
Took myself out for a solo date night and it was fabulous. The waitress was so kind and friendly. I really enjoyed my whole experience there. Always have. Can never go wrong coming here to dine and to sit back with a good cocktail.
Christmas experience gift for our grandson!
Going to the Melting Pot is a once a year type of deal for us due to the cost of dining there. We've had great service in the past, unfortunately not this time. We had Drew and he was mediocre at best - seemed like this job was below him as he's been working for the company for 10 years on and off. May be time for him to move on unless he can turn in around. There was another server named Bronson(?) who was much more helpful, attentive, and enthusiastic. He genuinely seemed like he enjoyed working there and talking to guests. I would recommend this for a date night or double date night, but ask for Bronson - he's the best!
Enjoyed cheese and chocolate experience with excellent service!
Great opportunity to catch up with people - plenty of time to talk! Server great, food amazing! Tables just small but nice & private.
The food is good and a fun experience. The staff was attentive and friendly. The prices are a bit high for the level of experience and food. Very cold if you sit at the tables near the door. The decor could use an update. Good gluten free options!
Excellent dining experience with my daughter before a show!
Let me explain why this location gets 3 stars... Which is still a good review according to OpenTable!
It had been many years since I came to The Melting Pot and my friend and I decided to come last minute on a Saturday night for his birthday. We were told that there were only tables at 4:30pm or 8:30pm (clearly this place must be BUSY!), so we reluctantly chose 8:30pm which is late for us but thought, why the hell not, we'll eat a snack around 4pm to hold us over.
We show up, and the place is EMPTY! I mean, for no tables available to reserve during prime time, I would have thought TONs of people would be finishing up their dinners and it would be bustling. But no, there were 2 empty dining rooms, a bunch of empty 6 toppers, and a scattering of people at 4 top tables.
So I find this confusing. Either management has made a decision that no 2 people reservations can sit at a table with 6 chairs, or they purposefully do not have staff to support additional tables beyond the 2 dining rooms with people. (Yet they clearly have enough money to support 4 hostesses...) Either way its lost revenue. Wouldn't 2 people at a 6 person table be more revenue than NO people at a 6 topper? And I'm sure there were others like me that looked for a reservation on Open Table or called, saw there were no 7pm tables and changed their minds. I will gladly offer my services to the management to do a cost benefit analysis.
The food and service were good though! We had a delightful waiter who gave us good recommendations. I wouldn't say all his recommendations were winners, but we had a great time anyways. Its always fun to dip sticks into hot delicious cheese or oils. Desert was super fun and they brought out extra fruit which we appreciated. I would definitely go again if I'm ever in town and looking for a fun, interactive meal. I am worried they will go out of business if they keep purposefully not filling up their restaurant.
Fun experience! Staff was great! Food and drinks amazing! It’s actually a lot more food than I anticipated!
It’s a lot of fun.
Definitely a forgettable experience. Service was “eh”, nothing notable. Food, eh. Bread for fondue was dry as hell, celery bits were dark/slimy on the ends, as were the apples also. The Cajun seasoning was good. Double thumbs down overall. Won’t be back, encouraging others to pass.
Very slow service which made it a very long dinner for us with 2 kids. We were jealous of the people across the aisle from us who had much more attentive service. Food was good and fondue is fun. Very expensive so will reserve for special occasions
Tom, our waiter is awesome! He makes the experience super enjoyable!
Food was great and our server was very professional and fun!
Great food and excellent service
Fondue was sub par at best. Meats and breads were not up to the standards for the price.
Felt like they just hadn’t updated anything and the service was strangely uncomfortable.
Very odd experience
Excellent vegetarian choices, along with gluten-free breads and desserts. Dipping our food in the cooking oil took a little practice, but we soon got the hang of it. We were promptly seated at our reservation time. Our server was knowledgeable and helpful. Plenty of food is served, so we could have gotten by with a single entrée order to split between us. Prices are high, but the experience is worth it for a special event as it was our anniversary.
The service was AMAZING! Everything was explained in detail and substitutions were no problem.
It’s such a fun environment, but way over priced for what you get.
It’s my daughters favorite restaurant and we came to celebrate her 13th bday.
Every thing to make her birthday special was nickeled and dimed to my bill.
The quality of food is not up to par for cost.
Luckily, she loved it all except dessert.
