The Melting Pot - St Petersburg Ratings and Reviews
We have been to this melting pot many times over the years. This time was not a good experience. Our waitress seemed very inexperienced, and the main meal was served extremely slow. The cheese was delicious and so was the chocolate. A couple of us are vegetarians, and ordered the veggie meal, it was horrible, the tofu was a weird consistency and there was something that looked like a meatball that was not edible. Also, it said they had edamame and onions but none were available. The manager did remove that portion of our dinner from our bill. The staff was nice, but the restaurant need a few tweaks. I don't highly recommend this but, we may give it another try.
Fun place to experience fondue, have been there several times before with friends who love cheese and chocolate. This particular time with a group of all girls from the ages of young teens to grandmas, the only thing with a group, there was 7 of us, you have to narrow the choices down to 2 as there are only 2 burners on the table. The service was great and the manager frequently stopped by to make sure we were enjoying everything. Most of us had the 3 course deal with cheese, salad and chocolate. in years past they served a descent size salad which made it a good 3 course meal, this time the salad was very small, a little side salad and we had to order more sides which was disappointing. I felt bad as I had told everyone how great the salads were and I was correct but only 2 bites. Not quite the deal it use to be but still a unique experience
The overall experience was wonderful. The waitress did pay quite a bit more attention to the party of 6 next to us than to us, and our cups stayed completely empty for upwards of twenty minutes. It also took a really long time to get our entree (just one) and the party of three in the next booth actually got their three separate entrees first. The food was wonderful but the service was a little bit lacking.
I am a regular, but this time was a little disappointed. Our server must have been new as she did not know much about the menu, brought us the wrong drinks and neglected to turn our table heater on, so our food did not cook, until the manager came and turned us on after we waited almost an hour for our meal. Never did get the seasoning I asked for twice, It got so late we skipped dessert and just went home. Very frustrating.
Celebrated our son's 15th birthday, we were fortunate enough to sit at a table that had 2 burners, so we got 2 different types of cheese fondues, 2 cooking methods, but stuck to our favorite chocolate fondue. The grill cooking method definitely takes longer, not my favorite, but was glad we were able to try it along with the traditional cooking method.
Quality food ingredients, small portions, particularly of the cheese fondu. Inattentive service, which probably relates only to our server. Mediocre wine selection at the typically high prices found in most restaurants.
The Fondu style of dining was complicated but fun -- for two. Although I recall the heyday of fondu for entertaining at home, I cannot imagine this working well for as many as four diners at a single table and fondu pot. For two it works well enough.
Very glad we went there nonetheless. We did enjoy it, though we will not return soon. Just too much competition from better restaurants in immediate area.
We had a great time! Manager called and confirmed our reservation. Since it was our anniversary; he asked if I had any special requests or if I was having flowers delivered. That was a nice touch and made it a special moment. Food and service was very good. We like the Melting pot very much. Always a good time!
Deanna was our server and she was incredibly knowledgeable about the menu and the way everything worked. I do wish some things were different though. We had thought about doing one of the main courses but after seeing the sides on the cheese fondue we decided not to try the entrees. We were both full after the wedge salad and cheese fondue though so they do give you quite a bit. We got the artichoke spinach cheese and it was super good but we got the rosemary fries and they were literally prefrozen fries with a dash of rosemary seasoning sprinkled on top haha. Everything seemed like it came out of a bag or can. The chips obviously were
walmart brand quality tortilla chips or the similar. Just a little disappointing to say the least. Ambience was cool and i like the fondue but i really dont like the idea of cooking my own steak for so much $$. We might try it again for the chocolate and see.
I heard so much about this place but did not find it such a big deal. Menu was a little complicated but the waitress did try to explain it. Still a little confusing. Portions were very small and limited unless you order the 4 course meal which was expensive also and didn't offer too much for my liking. I'm still glad I tried this place but I dont think i will return.
Only the second time going with the kids and although it can be stressful with younger ones who typically dont eat. Server Ryan rose to the challenge and made the night amazing. He went above and beyond accommodating us every course of the evening. Sunday is definitely family day! Food was amazing and service was more then one could hope for especially for someone with multiple allergies. Will be coming back for more then just the occasional celebration. Please stop in and seem them, it won't disappoint and prices are worth it.
My husband and I went for a special outing together. He had never been there he loved everything about the restaurant and cooking your own food. The cheese fondue was great the surf and turf excellent and of course the dark chocolates dessert was the icing on the cake. We definitely will be returning back to The Melting Pot for our anniversary
Terrific value with good food, service and ambiance. Have special two-person tables in quiet corners which are good for special occasions. Very nice and helpful servers. Excellent food quality. Unique experience. Very relaxing. Brie and bacon fondue, filet mignon cooked at table, and traditional chocolate with peanut butter fondue were high points! Will return soon!
Came here for our anniversary. We were impressed by the romantic back table and the options to get rose petals on your table. Meal is slow moving so plan 2 hrs. It is on pricey side for food that you are cooking yourself. Still had a great time and the chocolate at end is amazing.
My family loves the Melting Pot and done there all over the country. We just moved to St. Petersburg and I made a reservation to take my oldest daughter who is turning 17 in there for her birthday. We put that we were celebrating a birthday in the reservation as well as let the hostess know when we showed up. They started go sing happy birthday to another person in the restaurant, but didn't knowledge my daughter's birthday and our table. We put that we were celebrating a birthday in the reservation as well as let the hostess know when we showed up. Lestat go sing happy birthday to another person in the restaurant, but didn't knowledge my daughters and our table. Being that this was my daughter's favorite restaurant, this was a letdown. As we were paying, I asked our server about it and his response was exactly this : " if you really want us to, I can go back and get everyone together and do it but it's not that special".
Needless to say, we passed on it because it was already on Portland Avenue that we even had to bring it up in front of my daughter.
The food was great pleasure usual, but we will not be planning any other celebrations at this particular melting pot.
we were at the Melting Pot to celebrate Girl Scouts, our girls were aging out as girl scouts, they have been together as a troop from Daisy girl scouts through Ambassador. They are all leaving for colleges...what a journey, what memories and Melting Pot was the icing on the cake or girl scout cookie. The restaurant staff and management made the girls feel like princesses, well actually warriors. Hats off to Melting Pot St Pete for your kindness
Absolutely amazing! Our waitress was very knowledgeable of the menu and provided us many extras to make us feel special since it was our first visit. The manager came over and spoke to us as well to see how our experience was. He too was very welcoming. Next time we're back in st pete we will be back!!! Highly recommended
I LOVE THIS PLACE! I have been twice, both for birthdays, and the services is insanely good. I was shocked over how wonderful our server, Lauren, was to both my daughter and her best friend. The food is amazing, always. We love the four-course option since we could get different types of meats, a cheese fondue, salad, and dessert. It's everything you need to get the full experience.
