    Started off great. Then they sat a family next to us with a 2 year old who was clearly tired and crying the whole time. Then after after we got our entree, our waitress never checked back for drink refills. We finally had to flag her down. I don't mind spending a ton of money on food, but I don't want kids crying...we spoke with the manager after the fact and while he apologized, he did say other people complained as well.

    Food was great was overcharged went there for a birthday and when you set up the reservation they ask if it is going to be a "celebration " I said yes and asked for the special add and checked the "celebration " and paid the extra money. DONT DO THIS they charge 5 dollars extra a person for NOTHING I thought there was going to be some type of set up for the birthday and there was not I asked about it and was told it's really for nothing I asked to be refunded this money and they said NO. the melting pot is not cheap to begin with so adding money for no service is just theft. So dont do it I agree it's for a celebration but their's

    Not the service we are used to at the melting pot. Server was pretty absent the whole dinner. One of our girls overindulged, this being her first multi course dinner experience and did have the unfortunate experience that can come with overindulgence in food. So rating the service is hard, as overall our dinner service was less than stellar but the manager… or I assume the manager really came to our rescue and was pretty amazing to us.

    Service was than expected and continues to get worse with every visit. Service is just not what it was before the pandemic. The kicker for me; leftovers were taken home in 20oz clear plastic cups and no bag! This place is just not the value it once was.

    The restaurant was so hot! We looked at the thermostat on the way out and it said it was 86 degrees inside the restaurant. It made it so un-enjoyable. There were 4 tables that got up and left because the heat was so overwhelming. Staff said the AC is broken. I will not consider going back until it is fixed!!!

    Expensive but great. We went for our anniversary and had the total 4 course meal experience for two. My wife got chicken as one of her proteins and regretted it. Took too long to cook and we were paranoid about cooking it thoroughly. Overall we loved it!

    My wife and I went here for our third wedding anniversary. The food was solid. We had the four course meal with the classic alpine fondue and used the grill method. The cheese fondue had a little too much nutmeg and not enough garlic for me. I also would not serve celery with the cheese fondue. Seems like an odd choice. The salads were pretty basic and not quite the quality I would expect from a higher priced restaurant. The rest of the meal was good, though I did miss having a bbq or steak sauce as a dipping sauce. We finished with the Dark & Dulce chocolate fondue, which was very yummy, but definitly missing more fruit options to dip in the chocolate. The staff was great! Super friendly and attentive. Overall a good experience, if a bit overpriced.

    The service and food was fantastic but the front staff was very confused and did not communicate to each other very well. Our reservations were for 7:15 and they seated several customers before us. We had to ask what was going on. We weren’t seated until after 7:30. A little frustrating. But the rest of the night was great.
