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.

Loved this restaurant - having the fondue pot creates an intimate and memorable meal. Plan a couple of hours for the four course choice. That being said, $52.50 per person is a rather hefty price... special occasions only for this family. But you won't be disappointed in your food, presentation or your evening!

We dined here for our wedding anniversary and our server Holly was excellent. She had thoughtful suggestions based on questions she asked us and she really listened to what we were looking for and liked. She was the perfect amount of attentive and hands on yet let us have a quiet and romantic evening. The small curtained table was wonderful and romantic and really allowed for a special evening. We loved every course and really enjoyed the process moving from one course to the next. It allowed for conversation and not rushing through the meal and the process. Fondue is a staple in my family and we did fondue for Christmas and New Years (at home) since I was born. This was my husband's first time having fondue and he loved the experience. And for me, a fondue snob, I couldn't have asked for a better night for us.

The melting pot is a great place for a date. They have private booths for two which are super for a date. Make sure you ask for them before if your interested
Dinner was great. Going back I’d order the cheese fondue and the chocolate fondue only. Cuts almost half the price and is still enough food.

My husband and I went to the Melting Pot to enjoy the Restaurant Week menu advertised online and on The Melting Pot's Facebook for $44 a person, once we were seated we were told the only special they were doing for restaurant week was a $109/couple special which is ridiculous considering they advertised it and now that you're in the restaurant it's a $21 increase on the meal. This started off the experience on a bad foot but we still tried to make the most of it.

As for the food - the cheese fondue was not good - I think they like cumin way too much - I would recommend avoiding the green Chile cheese fondue. The main course was alright once we were about 15 minutes in and the liquid was actually hot and the dessert was great.

The restaurant experience was terrible instead of a nice quiet dinner together, we were seated across from a private room that had the doors open and was filled with loud 12 and 13 year old kids who kept going in and out during our entire meal.

Overall, bad experience but had it not been for the restaurant blatantly lying, we would probably go back, but given the false advertising and poor experience, we don't plan to go back any time soon.

This was our first trip to a Melting Pot as one of our anniversary celebration meals we thought it would be fun. We were however not impressed with the menu or the quality of the ingredients that were provided. Our waitress Holly was very nice and made it enjoyable however for the price the quality of the ingredients should have been much better. The first salad went back since there was bad (old and brown) lettuce in the salad. The vegetables provided for the meal looked like they had been cut far in advance and were dried out and not of good quality. There were very few individuals in the restaurant including ourselves. The costs were high for what we got and as mentioned the quality should have been better. The waitressed acknowledged our special occasion but nothing our of the ordinary was done to make it a special evening that we expected. Could have been much better for the price as compared to other locations we visited while in Scottsdale where we were treated much better.

We really used to love this place, it was an intimate dining experience with great food. The wait staff was excellent and loved to showcase their extensive knowledge. However, this time we felt rushed, the menus look cheap, and the waiter almost forgot about us it seemed. He never asked if we wanted additional drinks or came to check back if we needed anything else. While the cheese and chocolate choices were great, the waiter left our burner on after the main course and it got uncomfortably hot before the chocolate came. The chicken and pork were good, but the steak was so grisly that I had to spit pieces out into my napkin. Just no longer the luxurious experience it was before, but the cost is no less. I would do chocolate and cheese again but not the meat.
