Terrible Management. They refused our gift card of $150 that shows active on their website. They refused to even run it. Won’t be returning. So sorry we chose to spend our anniversary celebrating at their establishment.

The meal was grossly over-priced and all three courses were abysmal. I hadn’t been to a Melting Pot (different location) in nearly 8-9 years and I can guarantee it will be much longer than that before I waste my time and money there again.
The only saving grace was the great service we had.

Waitress made the night, very nice and the food was good. Th price was for 2 was nearly $200 which I felt was obscene especially because they took away the left overs without asking if you’d want to take anything home.

It was amazing! I took my three kids ages 15, 8, and 6. My 6 year old touched the wrong end of the fondue fork and slightly burned his index finger. His skin was not burnt or welpt but it was very painful for him. The waitress noticed what happened and she brought him a bag of ice, burn spray, and treasure chest full of goodies to help him feel better. Other staff members came out to check on him throughout our dinner. Very caring and polite staff!

For a special evening, The Melting Pot would be an excellent choice. My teenager loves the experience and for that I am very willing to spend more on what I would call a very good meal. All 3 of us have the 4-course dinner and that is a lot of food; difficult to finish, but we did quite well. The service was truly impeccable, the social distancing and safety precautions all in order, making the dining experience the best I have had in a long time. The pitcher of Sangria is quite large but good value if you are leaning towards the Sangria as a beverage choice...………..very fruity and quite tasty.

You won't go wrong with The Melting Pot in any way. 5 stars +++++

We had a wonderful experience on Thursday, June 11, at the Sarasota Melting Pot. It was are 46 year wedding anniversary and we could not have picked a better place. Our booth was intimate and the overhead music was soft and appropriate. The service was excellent and never intrusive. As for the food!. . .our cheese fondue was the Alpine with wonderful European cheeses that gave a tang taste to the bread, vegetable, and apple pieces. We had a choice of salads and both the California and Bacon Spinach salads were superb. We choice the Coc Au Van wine and broth based fondue to cook a fabulous variety of meats: We were given generous portions of shrimp, teriyaki sirloin, filet minion, chicken and salmon to leisurely cook our dinner. In addition there was a generous amount of vegetables accompanying the meats. The fab finale was the Classic Chocolate fondue where we enjoined various fruits and cakes to dip in the wonderful milk chocolate, crunchy peanut butter mix. Pure heaven!

We had an 8pm reservation and our sever made us feel rushed. She had our salad out before we were finished with our cheese & we had to tell her numerous times to give us some time. My boyfriend didn’t like his salad but there was no compensation for it- and She left it sitting in front of him. Our chocolate (banana foster) was so sweet- much sweeter than I’ve had before so it was hard to enjoy. It’s not the place it used to be- will look for other fine dining places especially for the money!

Food was pretty good especially the cheese fondue. Had potstickers as one entree and when you put in fondue they fall apart. Waitress charged us 18% and the. We split the bill with two couples and not aware of top added and tipped her again. She should have said something!!

If you have not had fondue for a while--it's delicious and such a delightful meal to share with someone. The food is wonderful, there is a pleasant quiet atmosphere here, and lots of parking in the covered parking garage. It's our favorite restaurant. Will be back soon we hope.

So disappointed. First time here. The one in Raleigh, North Carolina was exceptional. Sarasota was not. Service was really slow and my sister was never asked if she wanted a coffee refill. The cheese fondue was was not thick enough and didn't have much flavor. The chocolate was good though. We just got cheese and chocolate.

Our waitress was amazing. Very attentive and constantly checking up on us. The food was good as expected. It was a bit bothersome that we had a reservation for 745 and were not taken to a table until 10 minutes past 8 pm. I had to get up and go back to the hostess stand to ask for silverware for our party of 3 (myself and 2 young girls). The man at the hostess stand handed them to me like he was annoyed. Funny, it was I, the paying guest who had to cover his job responsibility but he was the one who was annoyed.
