The food is always good, but this was the worst service I have ever had there. The waitress was very atypical for that restaurant. She didn't chat, or involve us in the culinary experience as other waitstaff have in the past. In addition to her impersonal demeanor, the service was very slow. For instance, when I asked for two extra plates to share our meal with the two others at our table, she decided to clear a table across from us before bringing us our plates! On top of that, we came to celebrate my daughter's birthday. I wrote it in the reservation, which I have. But not once did she even wish my daughter a happy birthday! She didn't bring out candles with our chocolate fondue or even mention anything about it. It was the worst service experience I have ever had at the Melting Pot, and I will seriously rethink decisions to dine there again for special events.

We understand we went on Mother's Day weekend but we're disappointed in the service. First off they have a card in the ladies room if you think it needs service to take the card and hand it to an employee. There were two women behind the bar so I tried to hand it to them. They informed me that they wouldn't take it and I had to hand it to a manager. The card did not say hand to a manager.
When we were eating our server informed us that he was barely trying to stay above water with the load for mother's day. Also when he wrote down my order wrong he got very offended when I said that it wasn't what I ordered. I told him that I would just keep it and eat it and he's like "No, just tell me what you wanted and I'll go to the kitchen in get it" It wasn't in the nicest tone.

Our food was delicious. Our waiter was very attentive and kind. He offered us refills at each course and explained everything very well. My only complaint is that where we were seated it was very warm and uncomfortable. I was in able to fully enjoy my date with my boyfriend due to the fact we were at an incredibly small table with little air in prom attire.

Our waiter was amazing! Just the people that were sitting in the table across from us was loud and annoying, since we don’t like hearing your sex life, and how much you hate game of thrones. Lol! But that wasn’t the restaurants fault, just rude customers. :)

The restaurant is worn out.
Our booth had a big hole in the seat.
The burner was old and worn.
The tables are too cramped , hard to get comfortable!!
They need to have the ring around the pot so everyone is not running into each other’s food. while cooking!!
The oil got real dirty and was not cooking very clean.
Our waiter was amazing and very attentive to serving us.
The patio area looked dirty and very unorganized. Chairs every where.
The menu is to complicated and you end up not really knowing what you ordered.
This place needs a remodel , but the atmosphere does not meet the price..
maybe need a restaurant rescue program to come a do a make over.
Least to say we will not return.
To spend that kind of money to be seated in a booth that had a huge tear and had been duct taped says a lot.

I wasn't prepared for such a pricey 4 course meal my friends and I enjoyed, but it was very delicious. A bit confusing to know how to order if you are on a tight budget and your party have certain dietary foods they don't like. I should have researched the menu choices better before I booked a reservation. We went with the classic to experience everything, however we all surmised we could have gotten away with just the cheese fondue and desert if we were going to do that again. An expensive birthday dinner but a wonderful experience for us gals to catch-up, share time, and eat great food. Thanks. Our service was great and timed fine giving us a chance to enjoy each course. It definitely is an experience to share with friends and family!!

Food was great our service was great the only complaint I would have is all the employees hang out in the kitchen so when we got there waited for almost 5 minutes before we saw anyone other than other guests, and when I was looking for someone I had to wait for someone to come out of the kitchen. Keep your bartender behind the bar and your host at the front other than that everyone was really nice and friendly.

We brought our kids (aged 7 and 9) for the experience. The food took so long they fell asleep. This was our third time at the Melting Pot and we have never experienced this before. Our server was very understanding and helpful. We opted out of dessert. A disappointing $200 check.

The table was dirty, the waiter was a little off (could have been an off night), drinks were late; however, the waiter let us split a meal and was accommodating to that request and we got seated on time. The food was excellent. I'll be returning to a different location and recommending a different Melting Pot location to friends and family. Fix the service and cleanliness and I'll reconsider, but I'm no longer going to experiment with Scottsdale's location.

Not bad, but a little odd. You pay so much money to cook your own food. I understand that that is the point but it’s so expensive just for them to give you raw meat.

I wanted to introduce my daughter to the restaurant where her father and I had had a couple wonderful dates, but we only went for the dessert course. There were plenty of things to dip, but very little chocolate to dip in. My daughter was disappointed. Also, though we had a reservation and there were few people there at that time, we weren't seated for a while. The server was nice, though.

It was my wife’s birthday and we ordered the romance package. Everyone in terms of service was pretty good in my opinion. The downer of it all is the environment. The booth we got was tiny and felt a little old and out of style. The whole restaurant gave us impression. Not really the nice and fancy ambiance that I was looking for.

Our family decided to enjoy a special meal to celebrate being on vacation and have always wanted to try The Melting Pot. We had a reservation, so they knew we were coming and the restaurant was only 1/4 th full. It took 20 minutes to be seated and 20 more minutes before we even got drinks...not from the bar...just soda and tea. Our cheese was made in 2 rounds because it was for 2 instead of 4 the first time. It was terrible. We were seated behind a pillar away from everything (the worst table there) so our waiter kept forgetting about us and every course took about 20-30 minutes to even start...not because we were still eating but because we were ignored/forgotten. Meanwhile, the few tables we could see were getting excellent service and completed their dining long before us, even some that started half an hour or so after us. The service, atmosphere, and entire experience were very disappointing. It was our least favorite and most expensive meal on our entire 7 day vacation. We now feel hesitant to ever try a Melting Pot again, even our local Colorado venues. It was no fundue!

My girlfriends and I go to the Melting Pot to celebrate each of our birthdays, this has been a tradition for over 10 years. On this visit, the quality of the food was not the same yet the price had increased. I am sad to say on the next birthday (May) we will select a new restaurant.

Ralph was the server and did not listen to us, he had his agenda. He was loud and we felt like all his other tables were sitting with us.
The "new" spicy nuts were awful, totally ruined the salad. The Fondue was a disappointment, as the veggies have included broccoli and cauliflower in the past .
What happened to the baby pickles and the dry salami? My Wife dislikes tomatoes!!! Prices went up quality went down!!!

We come to dine and relax and enjoy, Ralph had other things on his mind.
He needs to stop saying "we" We are not dining together He was not invited!!!
He has a very irritating way about him. This was not the experience we wanted.
Everything from the service to food quality went down.
We ask to speak with the manager and after 15 minutes of waiting we left.

Dined here for weekend brunch. It was ok. The cheese fondue was just warm so when you dipped the chilled veggies and apples it ended up being cold food. The third course was chocolate and this was also cool. I don't think I will do the brunch again.

I wouldn't say the manager/host was rude; but I would say he was not warm, friendly, accommodating or helpful. He seemed annoyed we were even there. He never told us his name. CJ, our waiter, was DYNAMITE. He really made sure to check on us and deliver our special requests. We ordered balloons for that table. The balloons said happy birthday....it was no ones birthday, nor were birthday balloons requested. We ordered wine but couldn't get it because no one knew the price of the wine. Further, the wine (Clark & Telephone) retails for $40 to $50 dollars. The manager made up a price of $175 per bottle. OUTRAGEOUS. The manager never checked on us and the signature melting pot bathroom cloths were replaced with generic paper towels. I love the melting pot and have been going for years. Except for CJ this was not an up to par experience.
