Great waitstaff. Attentive, but unobtrusive service. Very good food but a little pricy. Great for special occasions.

Great service, we tried the big night out. I totally recommend doing the cast iron grill option for the main course. I wish they would give you some A1 as a sauce option. Tab ended up being $200 for two people, we did get a few drinks and a bottle of wine though.

We were pleasantly surprised at how much fun it turned out to be. The idea of cooking your meal was not pleasing at first, but we enjoyed ourselves during the process. There were lots of laughs and giggles. The food was bursting with flavor from our cooking pots! Everyone was getting full and we weren’t sure if we’d have room for dessert. We enjoyed the cheese fondue, our meat variety of choice, veggies and salad, then chocolate fondue for dessert. My only small complaint was space. The spacing was very limited. We were literally on top of each other reaching for our food. I suppose that added to the laughter during the experience. I thought I would not go back after that but I think I will try it again.

Took my son for his birthday. Food was excellent. Layout of restaurant is nicer than other MPs we have been to previously. Service was ok. Front desk acknowledged my son’s birthday, but the waiter never said anything. I thought he could’ve wished him a happy birthday. I split my payment cash/card. Waiter was quick to point out that the recommended tip was based on the after cash amount, which I realized, but understand him feeling the need to point it out, but found it interesting that he didn’t point out the original recommended tip on the paper bill was after the $25 St. Jude’s donation, which I also realized. He wasn’t quick to refill drinks or check in for additional dippers so our cheese became super hot while we waited for more dippers. All in all it was a nice evening out. I’d definitely recommend it.

Me And my significant other brought our mothers here to meet each other and get to know each other. It was an amazing time we were all laughing and joining and learning how to do this experience together, it would be amazing though to have a deal for parties of 4 or more.

had 7:30 reservation which turned into 8 pm seating (we did not care about that as we understand people take their time here) but after seating and getting cheese, salad and meat dishes it was about 9 pm and then service seemed to slow up with drink refills and refills on our meats since it was endless, then we ordered choc. we know now we need to make reservations around 6 pm hour so we do not end up left serviceless from 9 pm after as they "close" at 9 pm but it should not effect service for those that were seated and eating prior to. a little disappointed by that but otherwise great food as always!

I treated my friend to The Melting Pot for their birthday and he loved everything about it. From the time we walked in, sitting there and when we were leaving, he was so impressed. Our waiter was amazing. Shout out to bartender James!!!

Although it may not be maximizing their space/profits they are definitely doing a great job with distancing between booths and tables. The food as always is great and a fun experience. Rachel was one of the best wait staff/servers we’ve ever had.
