 (St. Louis)·Dined 6 days ago

Thought the service was very slow, and pushy to buy more than you might want, and very expensive for what you got.
Not really authentic fondue at all.

Much better than last time we were here. Requested a private booth to celebrate a birthday, which was accommodated. Kitchen was running behind due to large crowd, and food was delayed. This was fine for us, as we were not in a hurry, but be aware that it may happen. Our waitress and the manager kindly comped us a round of drinks to make up for the delay. Food was excellent, as always.

Regina was amazing!
This was our first fondue experience and it was awesome.
We're already planning our next trip(we drove from Springfield, IL).
Loved the layout too.
Thanks for a great experience!

I am so happy The Melting Pot of University City is now open for lunch! My girlfriend and I tried the crave combo with the Alpine Cheese, California Salad, and Yin Yang chocolate. The food was amazing and I want to go back again next weekend to try an entirely different combo!

The only thing my wife and I could say about "The Melting Pot" is that it was an outstanding experience in the service, the atmosphere and the food. Tobey our waiter was out standing. He told us everything about the food as he prepared each course of our four course meat at our table. He never let our drinks go dry. The manager is a hands on type of manager. He worked side by side with Tobey. My wife and I look forward to taking friends with us when we go back. The Melting Pot is the place to go for a date night out.

We returned to The Melting Pot after many years and were not disappointed. We took friends who had never been there and we all enjoyed a lovely meal. The hard part is deciding on one cheese and one dessert. But everything was delicious and the server, Sean, was awesome.

Our waitress was in and out and manager checked in. I've been at this location before and really the wait staff make the difference in a four course 2.5 hour meal. I extremely enjoyed the flavors of my food like always delicious and scrumptious. Not having my tea refilled wasn't great.

My husband came home for leave and he was very skeptical about eating at The Melting Pot, because it was a chain restaurant and he wanted somewhere special and unique. I am glad that I did not cancel the reservation for his birthday, because he was so surprised. He absolutely loved it!

Our waitress was not too helpful or talkative, and it was our first time at this restaurant...The menu can overwhelm you if you do not know how it works. The food was okay/decent but very overpriced. Paid $10 for one small glass of margarita. Interesting restaurant, however we will not be back.

Visited the Melting Pot Friday evening with my wife; first time visit. Overall, a good experience but came with a number of detractors. The meat proportions were very light....actually left the restaurant wanting more. The ambiance was too dark which made it difficult to see the food we were eating. Finally, the price for this experience was very high....just did the standard 4-course meal with nothing additional and it cost me $93.

Go every year for our anniversary. This was just a date and only did cheese and dessert. However service was just as excellent as always. Our server was especially good and very thoughtful! We’ll be going back for more more often.

My fiancé and I had a lovely time at the Melting Pot. The food was good, though the service was what really impressed us. The server that helped us was as friendly as could be, chatted, and overall made sure we were taken care of. The price was a bit more than what I would normal spend on a dinner date, but it was a special occasion. I wouldn't recommend this restaurant for anything but a special occasion dinner. My fiancé and I both agree that, while the experience was fun and interesting, we both would prefer to go elsewhere that is less expensive and spend what we save on a night at the movies or another other activity.

We made a reservation for 7:30 and were sat 20 minutes later. Very frustrated it took that long to get a table. The know we waited between 15 and 30 minutes to receive each food course. There was so much waiting it was frustrating. To give you an idea how much waiting we did; my husband and I shared the 4 course experience (since we weren't super hungry) and we were there for 2 1/2 hours. That is almost 40 minutes for each course and the waitress would not even check on us. Mind you I have ate at several melting pots in VA and NY and this was my worst experience I have had. Don't think I will be returning....

We love it. Biannual tradition to come here for my sister and my birthday. No holds barred. Spend a couple hundred with tip. But when we asked for extra marshmallows we were told they'd have to charge extra. Normally no big deal. But wirh 150-200$ for the 3 of us, feels like I'm being nickel and dimed. How much do marshmallows cost?!

... I gave 2 stars, its not our first time dining here, it's my daughter's fave restaurant, and every time she likes to celebrate her birthday here , and they always feel her special as they serve her dessert with a touch of birthday greetings in chocolate scribble, which she didn't have it this time , but last Sunday was so flat , as our server seems rushing . They have a signed card on the table at least.
