Good food. And something different to do. It’s expensive. And our server wasn’t amazing. He was pretty awkward. I don’t want to put his name here but I’d happily tell the restaurant. Some people are fit for fine dining and some aren’t unfortunately. Nice person but not great at social cues.

This was a surprise date night for my boyfriend. He loved the “experience “ & trying new things. It’s pricey but very romantic. We sat in a private booth with dim lighting & the drinks were great. I was so full I couldn’t make it to dessert. Happens every time! Will definitely go back.staff was very helpful explaining everything.

We just love The Melting Pot!!! We were there celebrating our 30th Wedding Anniversary. Melting Pot has been apart of our story from dating, date nites and now, our 30th Wedding Anniversary. We have been going to Melting Pot for 34 years. Where ever we move there you are an old friend welcoming us in. Thank you for the AMAZING CHOCOLATE COVERED STRAWBERRIES!!! They are so very yummy!

It was as good as always, I love this place I just wish is was a little more affordable especially since we only eat cheese and chocolate no meat

We took my son for his birthday. He requested the Melting Pot because of past visits. The food is great and we love the experience of cooking your food. The service was fantastic and they made my sons birthday special. We look forward to going back soon.

Service was very very slow. Dinner took almost 4 hours. Quite possibly the worst service I have ever had. Additionally the Melting Pot has substantially reduced the amount of food they serve but they have not reduced the price you pay. In fact, prices have increased. We left (finally) hungry. This used to be a family favorite of ours. It has been steadily going downhill over the years but we held out hope it would improve. However after this weekend's dinner, we have given up on that hope. I doubt we will ever be back.

I took my girlfriend on date night to this restaurant and was pleasantly surprised by the beautiful ambiance and hospitality of our waiter/staff. The meal was delicious and the additional pieces (rose, vase, photo frame, and chocolate covered strawberries) added a nice touch for a reasonable price. Would definitely recommend.

It's a great place to eat and the experience is what you are paying for. The 4course meal is not worth $43 but I understand why the prices are set that way. We dont mind paying it bc it's the experience and service we enjoy the most. Also the music they play is always some weird funky sounding track. Overall it's a cool place to eat and good for a date night.

Love having date night here with my wife. The atmosphere and food make it an enjoyable evening. We always spend at least 2 hours here and the time just flies by. They time your courses out so well.

The only thing I would suggest is to have more two burner tables that seat four. The pot gets too crowded when trying to cook entrees.

Our evening was delightful! One guest is vegan, a 7-year old is dairy-free. The vegan cheese fondue was a big hit with them. The other two guests have no restrictions. The staff accommodated those dietary restrictions with ease. You must not rush the entertaining evening, like we tried to do (without success) on a previous visit.

Good for couple and people who are out on the town and want something savory. Too much of a romantic ambiance for regular folks. Food is delicious and well worth the high price.

We came to the Melting Pot for our 44th anniversary. Our waitress, Talia, was very attentive and fun to talk with. She always seemed to appear right when our drinks were empty and ate the last bite of our entrée. Although we did have an issue with our gift cards..our fault....they were kind enough to text us and we promptly paid. I would highly recommend this establishment for a romantic evening out!

The Melting Pot restaurant is our favorite place for a romantic meal together or a meal with friends without interruption and noise. We have to drive 80 miles to get to it, but for a special occasion it’s so worth it!

A fabulous fun place to relax & connect with those we love. Price is a bit of a drag. We would likely father there several times s year rather than once or twice a year.

Been here many times, it just felt rushed. I know they get busy but this time was different. I felt like they were constantly checking our progress, if not the server then the manager. Teriyaki steak is the best thing I ever had.

Really enjoyed the food. It is always a fun experience. The service lagged a bit at times but overall a nice meal. It was disappointing that we asked for the Tampa Bay Restaurant Week menu, which was advertised on the event's web page, but were told they would offer the special pricing but did not have the advertised menu items.
