The Melting Pot - Rochester Ratings and Reviews
Another excellent visit to Rochester Melting Pot! We were there to celebrate my son’s 10th birthday, so I ended up calling in the morning and added on the balloon package. Zach was so excited and surprised when we arrived (he found out we were going there as we pulled towards the parking lot), and even more so when he saw his balloons and chocolate! As an even bigger surprise, my ‘don’t take my picture’ son was excited to get his picture taken and then receive it framed! Several of the staff stopped by the table to wish him a happy birthday, of course included in that were several stops by manager Kevin (who is just wonderful!!!). Amarra (sp?...card is downstairs) was friendly, informative, and great with my son. She went out of her way to engage him in conversation (she talked to him about Star Wars after noticing his shirt...he was a fan), and made it fun for him! She made sure we had everything we needed in a very timely manner, and explained things to Zach in a way that was easy to understand, but while still making him feel older! And as always, the food was amazing!!! When it came time for chocolate, in addition to ‘Happy Birthday’, she also wrote ‘May the force be with you’ on his dessert plate...very cool! And that one little extra thing brought a huge smile to his face!
Great great great evening...thank you!!!
Service was sub-par. Had a reservation, the place was kind of empty, but seating still took a while. The food was good - just has two kinds of cheese fondue and two kinds of chocolate fondue. The portions are so small that the min order is 2 portions. The waiter did not control the temperature properly - we had to do it ourselves, which would have been fine had we been told from the start, so we make the best of the fondue. As far as value for the money, it's really expensive to the point that it's not worth it - and that was without any entrees, which are even more expensive. will not go there again and will not recommend the place. Sorry.
The server and manager were more than helpful and friendly with their menu, and with accommodating special requests. However, one option that I believe needs to be added to the reservation section on line is the fact that depending on the special request, they need to leave a price notification, something that tells you ahead of time that you will be charged depending on your special request. Because I was surprised with an extra 20 dollars on my bill at the end for a single rose... it was cool that we got to take the vase it came in home tho, as well as the rose! Overall I’d give it 10/10, would recommend!
Went for my daughter's 26th birthday with 6 of us in the party. Two newbies in the group. The waitress was awesome, extremely helpful, explained everything very well. The dessert plate for my daughter had "Happy Birthday" written in glittery gel on it and there was a birthday card for her on the table signed by all of the restaurant employees. Every one of us in the party had an awesome time. Just make sure that you have a lot of time if you're going for the 4 course meal. If you've got newbies, or indecisive people, it can take 3 hours to get through the 4 courses.
I would recommend this restaurant for any occasion. We were a group of six and it was fun and great food. The server, Phil, went out of his way to make sure we understood the process and was very helpful. We were there for a birthday celebration for 2 people and they brought champagne with our dessert fondue and gave plates with Happy Birthday on them to the celebrants. It a very good evening.
We celebrated birthday / anniversary with another couple. It was their first time and they found it to be quite a unique experience
Our server Victor absolutely made the night
He was funny and charismatic and made our dining experience and celebration of our occasions a night to remember !!
We will be back again and will request him again if possible on our next visit
My friend and I were at the Melting Pot tonight for dinner. We mixed up the dates for the Friendsgiving special, which doesn’t actually start until tomorrow, but the manager was kind enough to still let us do it! The food was as amazing as always and Poe (our waiter) was lots of fun and took great care of us!
My husband and I were there for our 1 year wedding anniversary. We went there for our first date Valentines Day 2015 and I fell in love with The Melting Pot. The food is absolutely delicious and we are never hungry when we leave. We always have excellent and outstanding service. Everyone is extremely nice and pleasant. The manager Kevin remembered us from our last visit this past April. My husband took me for my birthday which happened to be Kevin’s birthday too which was really cool and he was our server that night. For our anniversary dinner we had Michael and he was wonderful and very pleasant. We were there for just over 3 hours and enjoyed every minute of it. We can’t wait to go back!!!!
We have been there several times and truly enjoy it. Just special time being able to go there. Quiet, Cozy and Food is amazing.
The owner came up to us and talked and wanted to make sure we were enjoying our evening. The manager came by to talk and also make sure all was good.
Our Server was Amora and she was fantastic !
My family and I visited the Melting Pot for the 1st time this past weekend. We went for my wife's birthday with the plan of sampling some 'desserts.' From the moment we entered until when we left about 90 minutes later, we were treated as though we were the most important people in the restaurant. The staff was friendly, helpful, and explained everything about the menu, expectations, etc. "Dino" was our waiter and he was excellent! He was friendly, used humor, and took good care of our family. We ended up having an appetizer and then dessert. Both were excellent! At 2 times during the visit, the manager visited our table to check on our experience, etc. It was nice to be treated so well at a restaurant. It doesn't happen a lot anymore...The food was pricey, but we knew that going in, but it was well worth it! We probably won't visit a lot, but on special occasions: a great place to celebrate and to be treated like kings and queens for the moment!
Good night: Fulfilling my 8 year old's dream of seeing her first live musical. (In The Heights!, it was fantastic and blew her mind!)
Better night: Dressing "fancy" and eating somewhere special. Her #1 choice is The Melting Pot.
"Best night ever!"(Actual girl child quote) That's when you can arrive a tiny bit late to the Melting Pot, but still have to time to add in an extra cheese course, all the ridiculous questions and jokes my daughter asks, and I guess a main course as well (Who knew she was that hungry)? All that and the staff made sure we left exactly on time.
Thanks for helping ensure that her first theatre experience was perfect.
We went for my birthday and had a really great server! She was ver nice and interested with my kids. She even let my 6 year old help make the dessert and she was very excited to help. The food is always really good and has never disapointed us. This is the second time we have gone there, the first time was for our anniversary and loved it! This is our new favorite spot for dinning out on special occasions.
The food delicious and the choices are vast. The quality of the fondue is superb and the only thing to consider is the price point. It’s not cheap but the food is delicious and the service excellent. The wait staff are friendly and go out of their way to make your experience great. In fact we were celebrating our daughters 21st birthday and they brought our complimentary champagne for us all during dessert. Overall a class act!
We always go here for our kid's birthdays! It's their first place of choice for their birthday or whatever special occasion it is. Victor was our server and he was wonderful! Full of smiles and happiness! He was on the ball and quick to get whatever refills we needed. The food is tasty and so filling, especially if you do the 4 course meal choice. I'm glad there is a local Melting Pot in Rochester!
