The Melting Pot - St Petersburg Ratings and Reviews
My boyfriend and I drove over from Orlando to celebrate my best friend’s birthday. As an added bonus, she and her boyfriend had never been to The Melting Pot, so they were in for a real treat! Both couples did the ‘Big Night Out’ deal and we had the Bananas Foster dessert which we all absolutely enjoyed to the fullest! It was a very special night, and thanks to Laura, it’ll be one to remember for many celebrations ahead.
Initial female server was just the absolute worst and actually stated to me: “Are YOU alright?” which everyone in the world knows is what’s wrong with you. I stood up to leave instantly and quickly got a server with good people skills and a manager apology but that was it. Probably should have just left. Unfortunately they own the monopoly on fondue and my son and his friend really wanted to try it. I’m sure the female server who lacks people skills will work somewhere else -ie: at computer very soon.
Quiet place. Nice decor. Pricey but like I said they got the monopoly on fondue.
Booking the reservation online was extremely easy. Service was great-the young man who waited on us explained the dining options and gave great recommendations on choices. The cheese fondue choices are great, the entree choices that we cooked ourselves in the bouillon were marvelous, and the many chocolate fondue desserts——Oh, my! wonderful! Highly recommend!
I Took My Friend There For His Birthday And It Was Both Of Our First Time Being There And It Was Amazing The Experience We Had Really Lit The Whole House Up I Enjoyed Myself And Also Enjoyed My Server “Billy” She Was Amazing And Loved Her Thank You Again For Making My Friend Birthday The Best
My girlfriend and I have gone a few times to the St Pete location and when ordering we receive ONE pot of cheese to dip...yet this time we were charged TWICE for that item!! When we asked why, waitress said "well you shared it so we charge for two orders"....WHAT????
If you want a romantic date, you need to ask for a booth in the back area as it's the most private as you almost feel like you're alone. We sat in the main area it was quite loud. In fact, we had to lean in to make sure we heard each other well. It was fun....but a bit loud.
Our server Samantha was Fantabulous!! she was helpful and very attentive without being a nuisance. She was a delight and now we know what a romulator is :) (although I fear I do not know how to spell it :) We came to celebrate Valentines and we were so glad we did. It was a little over an hour drive from Lakeland, but, yes it was worth it :)
Thank you for a lovely evening

Ordered a drink at the bar before being seated at our table. The bartender seemed to be new as he seemed to be struggling with the orders. I asked for Grey Goose...he poured something in a blue bottle...I asked if it was made with what I asked for ...assured me it was...he also had to look up how to make a lemon drop martini. It was awful! After being seated at our table we sent the drink back. The manager was making them rounds and I shared the facts about the drink with him. He never offer to refund the cost of the $10 martini. The food was good, the service was fair. Probably won’t be in a rush to visit anytime soon.
My server Ryan was so friendly and easy to chat with. His witty humor was greatly appreciated. The manager stopped by our table twice to check in on things, which was very reassuring. The food was simply amazing. It was my dates first time visiting the restaurant and she absolutely loved the experience of it all. We both had “The Classic” and it was delicious. Highly recommend it. We had some Love Martinis as well, since it was a late Valentines date. The atmosphere there still had love in the air. Thank you.
The food is always great and the service is always outstanding. On this last visit I was celebrating my husbands birthday. He was in North Carolina, and I was in St. Petersburg, and we were planning on sharing a dinner date via FaceTime. Horror of horrors, I couldn't connect to the internet! Our waitress and the manager went above and beyond to get me connected so we could enjoy our virtual date. They do offer free wifi, but you have to have a social media account, which I do not. It turned out to be a really fun time. The manager even came by to say hello to me and chatted with my husband on the iPad. Really really great experience. Thank you very much!
My husband and I have been visiting the St Petersburg Melting Pot for decades. It's a great place to spend a couple of hours having a meal. The dining concept is fun and there are many options to choose from. The staff is always polite, on-the-ball, and discrete. While we prefer to dine as a couple, we've visited with another couple, a small group, and we had my 40th birthday party here. Nice wine list and an extensive bar.
We have always loved the melting pot. Unfortunately, this past weekend was not the best experience. Everything took forever. First greeting, first drinks, refills, food. They brought the cooking style pot out and it had almost boiled away before we ever got our food to cook. The service was extremely slow. Pots were left too high of temperatures due to the lack of attendance to the table.
We have been to the melting pot several times, this was not one or our better visits. Our server seemed very scattered, the temp on the hot plate was not working correctly. Once our main course arrived we had to wait about 15 minutes for the oil to be hot enough to start cooking. At the beginning of the meal I handed the server a birthday certificate for chocolate covered strawberries, the server never brought them to us and in all the confusion at the end of the meal we forgot to ask her about them. We got halfway home and realized we didn't have the strawberries. My wife called the melting pot the next day to explain the situation and she had to go the next day to pick up the berries.
First visit, and extremely disappointed. That concept is not for everyone. They have in the menu only three plates prepared by the chef. We ordered short rib and chicken. Both plates served cold , from the fridge straight to the micro. Arrived to our table warm outside and extremely cold inside. The food to expensive for the quality they serve.
Went for my sons 18th birthday. Party of six was handled very well and was a nice experience. I like the pace of it all for conversation and relaxed dining. Lots of time for conversation and taking your time with friends and family. I also like the old house they are in. Very cozy.
Got seated a bit after 6pm. Party of 6. Check came at 10 pm. No exaggeration! We WAITED to get our order taken , we WAITED between every course, WAITED for dessert and WAITED for the check. We even WAITED just to get hot water for tea, like almost 10 minutes. Melting Pot is fun, our server was personable, we had a good family time... just didn’t intend so spend so much time! 4 hours for dinner?! Other tables moved along in half the time, which is STILL. a long time.
Bottom line: plan for this to be the only event of the evening.
