Good dessert but very expensive. Only had chocolate fondue and one glass of wine and the bill was $70.00!

felt like I was eating in a phone booth, very cramped. The food was good but ridiculously over priced. Took 20 minutes to get a table I had reservations for. The server was a delight however I will not eat there again.

The Melting Pot had been on my "bucket list" for quite some time. I enjoy fine dining and do not mind higher range prices as long as the quality of food and experience matches the cost. In this case, the food quality was far below the cost. The overall experience and the food, especially, was a major disappointment.

Our first time dining here, we were suggested to ask for four 4 entries but it was too much food for teenagers!
Next time we will order less food to avoid wasting money and food.

Loved the options for cheese, meats, and chocolates. Went on a double date, and had a blast. Prices are still a little stiff, but makes it more special to go out and experience once or twice a year.

My boyfriend and I came here for our 1st anniversary. We had a private booth with the “Touch of Romance” package which gave our special night an extra special feeling. The food and service was phenomenal! I am so happy my partner and I chose to celebrate such a special moment in our life at the restaurant.

I would not recommend this restaurant for anything. This was the second and final visit to this establishment and I will be sure to make sure everyone I know does not waste their time or money. For starters, the lights were so bright, we had to put the black cloth napkins over the light pendants. When have you ever been to dinner where the lights were too bright...seriously, they were painful even to my 82 year old father. Then at 8:00pm when my dad asked for a coffee refill we were told they were out of coffee. In Scottsdale, AZ they were out of coffee. When I spoke to the Asst. manager Emily about this, she couldn't be more rude or more uninterested. Where are we? The food is average at best and after 3.5 painful hours and a $400 dinner bill I was done. Time and money not well spent...do not make the same mistake we did!!

Recently, I started dating someone who is vegan & had avoided The Melting Pot since i’ve Always had ‘family’ style meals there.
Well they have tables with double hot plates & vegetarian selections so we had a fantastic meal without any hassle or challenge meeting our very different dietary needs!
The Melting Pot doesn’t disappoint!

I'm very disappointed with the melting pot. They always give you hassle over reservations. My experiences with them throughout the years haven't changed. I remember the first time I visited: They treated me like a smelly homeless dog, and guilt-tripped me, just because I happened to stop by and try to get a table without a reservation. No melted cheese for me that night. I've never been treated so poorly in my life by a restaurant for daring to come without a reservation.

This restaurant has an "our way or the highway" attitude, and it shows in every one way. I visited them a week ago twice in separate occasions. The first time, we left a note giving them feedback because we weren't satisfied. Instead of accepting our feedback like a responsible business, they responded by tightening up credit card requirements for OpenTable reservations. We found out because my husband decided to give them another chance and take our whole family for Christmas dinner and they demanded a credit card to reserve. That's not the worst part: They called my husband, after he reserved our table online for eight people, just to see how much we were planning on spending. They specifically wanted to know if we were planning on getting their most expensive menu items. I believe they were trying to decide whether or not to cancel our reservation.

All these issues are born out of this anti-customer mentality they have. To them, you are just a nuisance, an enemy that needs to follow rules, pay up, and shut up. And until enough people leave bad reviews and start punishing them financially like they deserve, they will not learn.

Very disappointed customer.

Although I frequent this location numerous times each month, it never disappoints! Our waiter, Logan, was very attentive and knowledgeable. Also, book your reservations through Open Table and any special requests or needs will be attended to - I asked for a bottle of Sofia sparking wine to be chilled and at my table and - Voila!

Felt so terribly taken advantage of. Have been here before but our bill including drinks was $400.00. I have NEVER paid that kind of money for "okay" food in my LIFE. Very disappointed. Our waiter was wonderful BUT we had 6 people and only 5 ate. Very disappointed, VERY bait and switch feeling. the bread was dry, the veggies and meats were sparse and meats not that great. Lived in the valley of the sun since 1973 and go out to eat almost daily. will NEVER go back. the ultimate disappointment for my daughters birthday

This is one of our favorite restaurants. We go often but we’re fusapointed this visit because so much had changed. Also, pay close attention to your bill.. they gave us the check with a charge for refills for tea and soda.. when we questioned the server she said she was taught to do it that way. We asked her to check with the manager and the charge was removed.. it definitely seemed sneaky.

1st time visitor with high expectations but met with disappointment.
Cheese fondue lacked flavor of Gruyere; seemed like domestic was substituted but blandness was predominant. Bread chunks were dried out, too large, and brown bread instead of chunks of baguette.
Filet wasn't trimmed of sinew and was a challenge to cook properly for a novice. The portion was generous enough for two to share and I'd encourage that. Server is motivated to obtain larger orders than you need so beware of suggestions that keep increasing cost.
Geared for a young folks and family conversation and interactive environment, not older foodies expecting delectable treats to consume.
