Love this restaurant! My hubby and I celebrated his birthday and got to sit in the cozy section and it was perfect! Our waiter Dakota was awesome and very attentive to our needs as my hubby cannot have dairy.

Cannot wait for our next trip to melting pot!

First time ever here and I absolutely LOVED everything. Went here tonight for their ladies winter special. Let me tell you a major learning experience and I felt like a chef hahaha. The whole do not play with your food goes out the door. Super highly recommend this place if you want to have fun while eating amazing food!! The drink I got was love martini and let me just say im in loveee haha. Also I absolutely loved the Wisconsin cheddar and the pear brie... Yum!! For entree I ordered the MOJO sauce to cook my meats in that was definitely a wake up call to my taste buds. My personal favorite dipping sauce for the meats was their curry sauce! Yumn! Our waitress Jane was super amazing, friendly and funny! When I return I will ask to personally sit where she is serving! Overall 5 stars of 5 for having an amazing first experience here. The atmosphere super chill and it can range from family friendly to romantic to ladies night!!! Thanks Melting pot Poughkeepsie for an amazing time!!

My daughter and I try to eat at melting pot monthly. It's our favorite restaurant. We just had to try endless entree. It was great!!! We love the blackberry sage lemonade (virgin). The cheese is my favorite. You need to put the baked potato cheese back on the menu. Also the wedge salad and bring back tell cocktail sauce for the hr important, please!!!

I treated my family to a birthday lunch at this very unique restaurant. We all had a great time and a wonderful dining experience. I already mentioned it to many of my friends and family. We look forward to having more get togethers at this "fundue" restaurant.

Went out for a double date night and it was more than awesome! Spent 3 hours there and it didn't even feel like it. They didn't rush you and it was fun to cook your own food. Great overall experience!

Our server was excellent. The dessert was the best. We would return for just dessert next time. Dinner part was just ok. Cheese was ok.

Our reservation was for a special occasion. We made a reservation, and were shown in within 10 minutes of arriving. As the food was very good our overall experience was horrible.
Out server was very inexperienced. We were given no instructions on how to prepare our food once it was brought out (cooking time for veggies/meat/fish). We had to wait 15-20 minutes for drinks to be served once ordered, as well as waiting over 20 minutes between entrees. We had to ask repeatedly for refills on drinks and to be given the dipping sauces that we needed for our main course. Our overall time to complete our meal at this restaurant was 3 hours. This caused us miss/cancel plans that we had made after dinner, as well as ruin our experience here.
We did approach the manager to express our frustration. We were compensated with a discount off our bill and a "complimentary cookie" for dessert.

First half of our meal was on point. Once we finished our entree it took an hour to receive our chocolate for dessert. We have dined with the melting pot many times and this was very strange...chocolate was good but there was no reason to wait an hour from
Entree to dessert. That would never happen at any restaurant. We didn't complain and the manager seemed to be going to all tables to see how we were but he also saw how long we were waiting and didn't even try to make excuses or offer anything for our patience. Please do better because we love this place!

Everything was great, I went with my boyfriend for Valentine's Day. My only real complaint was in the dress code of the staff, especially the manager. The manager walked up to us and we were taken back as he was in street clothes. The manager should always be dressed as such, especially when the melting pot is a higher end restaurant. Street clothes are unacceptable. I would much rather of not had a visit from him
