Service was exceptional - believe her name was Ashley

Alpine cheese and strawberry salad very good

Scallops expensive and mediocre

Restaurant decor dated - booths reminded me of old Marie Calendars decor and it was too crowded for a party of 5

When I was seated my chair was dirty - I had to wipe it clean

It was our first time dining here, and the food was amazing! The quiet atmosphere made it easy to have an intimate conversation. I definitely recommend the Bees Tea, and the "Best of San Antonio" menu!

This is a casual or dress up type of restaurant with a fondue format for all courses except salad. It is a quiet, romantic atmosphere that can be a fun experience!

I’ve been to the Melting Pot a few times and had good experiences it the servers took their time and made the dinner longer than it needed to be but during my last visit, Ashley made the visit a much more enjoyable experience, she was attentive and did her job well. Would love to visit with her again.

Absolutely love this place, but had a horrible experience this time. Our waitress dropped a whole tray of sauces on me while cleaning up after our main course, took a while to come back with napkins, barely apologized and then acted like it didn’t happen the rest of the evening, it was all over my clothes, phone, the table, booth and wall beside me.. It was a complete accident but how she handled it was disappointing...

Food was great. Server was genuine and friendly. Felt like the waitstaff May have have been shorthanded somewhat. Several long gaps between courses and nothing to drink for 10-15 minutes at a time. Table next to us had a manager helping their server throughout their meal.

The food was good, but not to the level that I had expected for the price paid. Each course took an hour (an hour each!) to arrive, and our drinks were only refilled once. Multiple times our server stopped by to say "ok, I'll bring out your next dish", yet didn't appear. While pleasant, she was not attentive nor efficient.

Cooking times were provided for the meats, but no timing device was provided --- negates the purpose of a tech/cell-free date night. Using our smart phones, we timed the meats per the recommendation of two minutes; however, after three minutes (only one piece of meat per each of us, as instructed) the pork was still raw in the middle.

Overall, the food was just ok and the service was lacking.

The layout of this Melting Pot is not like others I have been to. The booths are set up more like a traditional restaurant. It doesn't have the cozy booths that give you privacy like other Melting Pots I have been to. It also was very loud compared to other ones I have been too.
The service however was probably the best I have ever had at a Melting Pot. I would definitely recommend it for girl's night out and a family get together but discourage it for date night and anniversaries.

terrible food that is VERY expensive. The bar drinks were severely watered down that even getting a "double" cocktail you could barely detect any alcohol in it.
I only went because it is my friends favorite (mostly just for the white chocolate fondue for desert) and it was her birthday. It is my third time at a MP and I avoid this restaurant like the plague!

The Melting Pot has never failed to impress! We tried the Taste of San Antonio and we’re allowed to make a few substitutions to the fantastic deal based on the table’s tastes. The charcuterie board was fantastic and was a fun addition to the cheese fondue. Highly recommend the Quattro formaggio as it tastes like a high-quality pizza. They added candles to the desert for my sisters birthday and ended our evening on a fantastic note. We cannot wait until our next visit!

We were here for new year eve and didn’t realize we wouldn’t have choices. It ended up being more expensive as we had to have meat and salad. We lost many choices such as what type of cheeses and chocolate we had to choose from. We were not thrilled

The meal was good and our waiter just okay. I didnt care for the salad and I made a definite mistake paying for wine samples with each course. I should have stuck with my personal favorites as I didn't care for the set choices. There were 3 of us and the bill over $300: not worth the money.

We had family in for Christmas and as a treat took them to the Melting Pot. As usual the service was great, the food was excellent but the cocktails were terrible. We personally do not feel that the prices at the Melting Pot are cheap so all aspects of the experience should be great. We ordered the Berry Mojito. These were terrible. Full of mint leafs, lots of ice and club soda which was the only flavor detected. For the price I guess we will stick to tea or water from now on.

We chose to have Christmas Eve dinner at The Melting Pot. Unfortunately service was below expectations. We selected the 4 course dinner, which did not flow well due to huge wait in between courses. Our server did not even introduce himself, he was unhappy, and we felt like we were robbed from the overall Melting Pot experience. The food tasted good, however that alone is not worthy of a $135 bill and 3 hours at a restaurant. My conclusion: The Melting Pot is overrated.

My only complaint was the table was too small for 6 people. We had six adults and we were elbowing each other the entire evening. And there wasn’t enough room on the table to the food and drinks. I have been to the Melting Pot in Dallas....it was much roomier there!

We went for my Birthday and the staff made me feel so special with a handwritten and signed birthday card, very thoughtful and unexpected! Our waiter was phenomenal, by being very patient with us and answering all of our questions with great knowledge. It was a little pricey but all in all well worth it. You get what you pay for and we will for sure be back!! Thank you for a wonderful dining experience.
