It was a great experience! I hadn't had fondue in a really long time and this brought back all the fun memories. Had cheese fondue, salad, combination of beef, shrimp and chicken as entree and chocolate fondue for dessert. All were excellent. The most amazing part was the variety of sauces - 8 different sauces for the meat and veggies in the entree course. Lots of different combinations to try. Included remoulade, sweet and sour, teriyaki, gorgonzola port, cream cheese & cucumbers (?), and three others I can't even remember now. Don't go here if you are in a rush -- a fun, leisurely meal can run 2.5 hours if you have all three fondues and a salad.

Very dimly lit- romantic ambience

5 star for the food because you cook it yourself

Staff was very friendly but spread too thin for such a busy night

Not the best place for little ones (unless you’re very attentive). With the prices, most diners are expecting a quiet atmosphere and that’s usually what we get. This time someone had brought a baby and let it cry and shriek while she had a nice conversation. After time went by and this continued, we spoke to the host and were quickly moved to another table that was much quieter. Great service and quiet ambiance for talking during a date and enjoying a leisurely meal away from home.

This place was supposed to be a special birthday celebration. We had reservations. The service was slow, everything from the greeting, drink service, and food courses. We had to go to the bar to get our own drinks, and the server forgot part of our sides entirely, along with the drink I requested for. 5 HOURS LATER, we finished dinner, and at the end he had the NERVE to add 18%gratuity! If he was worth it, we’d have no problem. However, when it’s added and you don’t deserve it, it shows he knew he was getting tipped and just slacked off. Myself and my entire family will never go back

This used to be my favorite place. It has really gone down hill in the last few years. I was very disappointed in the service. The hostesses were rude and the server was unknowledgeable. We basically felt invisible.

The Melting Pot made our anniversary very special. The food was amazing as usual, the table was set up wonderfully with flowers and a card signed by the whole Melting Pot team. Ryan was our server and took very good care of us. Thank you very much.

I chose MP for my anniversary. I booked a week early and got reminders throughout the week via the Open Table app. The app also gave me traffic conditions and approximate arrival time while en route...kinda cool. I called the day of the dinner and asked for flowers to be on the table for my wife, they kindly obliged and my wife loved it. They simply added it to the bill at the end of the dinner. They also presented us with an anniversary card and the waitstaff were all aware it was our anniversary - very personal and thoughtful touch. Our waiter was outstanding. He was friendly, knowledgeable and stayed on top of everything. Food was great, as usual. If I have to mention a negative, it was the hostess station on arrival. We had a 715 reservation and arrived about 708. We didn't get seated until almost 730. It appeared the hosts had some trouble or confusion with the iPad system. It was not a big deal, but just assessing each aspect of the night honestly. Overall, it was a fantastic evening, completely surpassed expectations. 5 stars and then some. Thanks to all the staff at MP for an amazing evening

They have changed some of their products and frankly the cheese and chocolate just do not taste like they used to. Service was OK, but not great.

The meal took 3 hours, we expected a longer meal just not that long. We loved our server, when we could find her. She seemed like she was doing way more than was fair. Restaurant is definitely outdated and dirty feeling and looking. Needs a face lift. Food was ok, tad over priced but it was a cool experience.

We brought our whole family including kids and grandparents. I would normally shy away from bringing kids who are picky eaters to a somewhat expensive restaurant, but they really had a blast and as a result this was one of the best family meals that we've had in some time.

Food was great but with 3 small children it took 2.5 hours to get through a meal which is much longer than previous experiences. Other tables were coming and leaving before we even received our entree.

Interesting to go one time but not worth the price. If you like paying money to cook your own dinner, then this is the place for you. Otherwise, cook at home and get much better food for your $$.
