Food was expensive for the quality. Great ambiance though, and the birthday card was a great touch for the special occasion.

It was very loud in the room we were in. The table right next to us had 4 women, all drinking, talking and laughing very loud. It was difficult for us to carry on a conversation. It was obvious they had too much to drink, they brought drinks from the bar and were served more at the table.

As usual, the food was very tasty. We tried the quattro cheese fondue for the first time and it has become our new favorite. Our server, Ben, was excellent! Everyone always makes us feel so welcome at the Melting Pot - it's a different experience than other restaurants.

All in all it was a good dinner, my only complaint would be our waitress explained things way to fast, however, she was a seeetheart and repeated whenever we didn’t catch what she said the first time. We had the yin and yang drink and it was like drinking milk and for almost $10 I expected to taste a little liquor but it was pretty.

My fiance and I went to celebrate our engagement and 1 year anniversary. They sat us in what would be considered the "lover's lane" section, a tiny, cozy, cubby table complete with a privacy curtain. Our server was very nice and attentive, and also informative about the menu. We ordered the Cheddar fondue, the California salad, and we chose the oil pot and an assortment of different meats for our entree. Everything was PERFECT. The oil was a little tricky to cook with at first, but overall, was still delicious. The manager stopped by to check in as well, which is always appreciated. At the end, they were so sweet, and because we were celebrating such an important day, we received a complimentary champagne toast. We skipped dessert because we were full, but we will definitely make this one of our special occasion destinations.

For the most part everything was well however the service and timeliness of our food was very slow and we had to keep asking for the same things multiple times before receiving. When the manager was made aware he was more than accommodating to correct the situation.

We had Brian as our server and I cannot tell you how much we loved him! He was great, on the spot, funny and attentive.

It took 15 minutes to come to the table to ask for our drinks...and honestly for the cost of this restaurant to bring the food raw and you cook it yourself I could have did that at home and paid less. Then for my friend to mention that she has a shellfish allergy and be told "well they change the gloves and plates so you SHOULD be fine" is a careless and ridiculous answer...we left and went elsewhere. I would never return.

This is a lovely experience. It’s relaxing, upscale and anytime you go it’s a wonderful time to gather with friends. We make it a point to come with Friends several times a year and spend about 3 hours enjoying this unique dining experience. The menu is fresh and there is something for everyone. The prices may seem a little on the high side but it’s an all inclusive price from appetizer to dessert. This is the place to come if you want someone to feel special.

This was my first time at the melting pot. I was very confused with the menu. The server did go over the menu but it was very quick. The meal was good. I however didn't get a refill at the end if the meal before the chocolate fondue was brought to our table. The waitress was not in sight for about 30 minutes to even ask for a refill another server was the one to bring them to us.
I was not happy to receive my bill with a lot of extra charges. Things that were not explained to me when we were ordering. When I asked the server about the bill her response to me was that I asked you at the beginning. My response to her was that it was very confusing. I asked for her to change my bill. I ordered 2 sodas, a salad, 4 course experience and a create your own meal. I had a extra charge for cheese. If i would have had a better understanding of the menu and how things worked I would have ordered much differently. I work in a restaurant and am very aware of customer service. This being my 1st time there I was not impressed at all. I am not sure if I will be returning.

Some problem with the order entry.... very slow service. Usually one course follows another closely and we would sit at times
For 30 min with no food. 4 different waiters/greeters asked me if I wanted another martini... that was annoying. Manager who was also the guy that sat us checked in an hour later to see how we
Were. Obviously not great... we weren’t eating anything when he checked in we were just sitting there bored. We didn’t speak up...not confrontational. He should have noticed without asking. Bummer cause it’s my favorite restaurant. But 3 hours for a meal is just to much.

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!!!

We had an amazing time overall. Although the food was still a little garlicky, it was less so than the last time so we enjoyed it more. The service was good and we were checked on multiple times to see if we needed anything else.

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.
