I am so glad we found this place. It is a relaxing dining experience with delicious food that is good for you! The servers are superior to any other place we have dined. Always on the ball and wanting to help you any way that they can. We are never disappointed when we come here, which is at least 2 times a month and sometimes more. This is a great comfortable place to destress and relax.

Wow!! It was my boyfriend’s first time and he absolutely loved everything about it! We celebrated his new job and it could not have been any better. The alpine cheese fondue was fantastic and everything tasted amazing. Our waiter River was just an added bonus.

I've loved melting pot since I was introduced to it at FSU. Great meal. Cheese fondue is awesome and now it's healthier cooking in broth. Just wish there was a location closer.

We asked for a semi-private booth for a birthday celebration for a party of four which we were seated in a private room connected to one additional booth, separated by a half wall partition. This would not have been an issue normally but with the restaurant empty, they sat a family next to us with very young, loud children that were climbing all over the booth and wall. At one point they spilled a drink that made it all the way to our side of the booth, soaking the sleeve of our daughters jacket. It really took away from the occasion and the experience we were trying to create with the purchase of a thirty dollar birthday add on. This experience was kind of a let down. The food was good but portions seem to get smaller and smaller with each visit. Our waiter was good, busy but attentive and friendly but also sick with a very runny nose, constantly sniffling. We felt bad but it’s worrisome that they would have him serving.

We have returned to this Melting Pot for our daughter’s birthday the past seven years. Sadly, we will not be back next year, nor at other times we are in the mood for fondue.
It is unbelievable that a restaurant where one spends over $300 for four people gets charged for the “rocks” in their drink... yes, an extra dollar for ice in your drink.
So, we will not be recommending The Melting Pot anymore.

My husband and myself had been to a melting pot in DC before. For Our son and his girlfriend it was the first experience. Our waiter was fantastic, every step was explained in detail and he checked on us often. It was the best New Year’s Eve dinner. Now that we know where the restaurant is located we will return for other dinners.

Everything was fantastic about our first visit to this Melting Pot...except the music. I’ve never commented of background music at a research, but this was so bad that it actually detracted from the dining experience. It was an odd mix of independent music that would have been more appropriate in a Star Wars bar scene. In talking to the waiter this is a much received comment. Apparently they have no control as this is a Corporate decision. CORPORATE: please give control back to those who know your patrons best, the location manager.

It was overall amazing and I loved it! However, the steam got to the point where it was too much. The steam ended up blowing on one of us and it was miserable for them. However, we all loved the food and enjoyed everything about it.

Honestly horrible. Server served us dirty napkins and then flipped them over when she saw they were dirty. Second course (salad) and there was a hair on the side of the plate. Server didn’t come back for 32 minutes between courses and put her hands all over the plate.

Was hoping for a nice date with my boyfriend, but really underwhelming. For the price, we should have gone to a nice restaurant.

Wish the waiter explained menu . We felt lost after not going in years . Also advertising stated Girls night and listed it all over Facebook which is why we all decided to go to catch up. When we asked waiter he just said ya we don’t do that anymore. Had a good time but had to use yelp to discover menu and wish the waiter would have helped

I have to say it was the best birthday celebration we’ve ever had. My son really enjoyed the food, ambience, and the waiters description of every course. Bryan really made his experience wonderful. Our family will definitely come back again.

Kind of an odd location, but once inside, the decor and atmosphere of the restaurant are very nice. Full disclosure, we had a coupon, so our meal was cheaper. The food was very fresh and very good. The chocolate fondue dessert was especially delicious!

We had a great experience! My only small issue was our server seemed overbooked with tables and had a hard time remembering things we requested of her. But, otherwise she was friendly and helped my family figure out how/what to consider when ordering. The food was yummy, as always!

Our pot turned off twice during the meat portion of the meal. We didn’t know it had turned off originally, and I ended up eating undercooked chicken. I only realized it later. Then I kept my eye on the cooker and it turned off a second time. The employees blamed us for getting it wet. Nobody seemed to care that this happened. One woman even said, “always grab us to turn it back on. Don’t feel like you have to eat raw meat.” I clearly didn’t purposely eat raw meat. Bad service. Nothing was done.

Friendly and attentive service. Fair prices. For the meat fondue we would prefer a wider range of sauces (garlic, hot sauce, maybe garlic butter). Fresh ingredients. High quality.
100% recommended.

My son loves Melting Pot, so I visited him in Tampa where he is going to USF to take him. We are regulars at the beautiful Melting Pot in Orlando and we were not disappointed in our experience in Tampa. The Host was really sweet and took all of our info for our next visit. The waiter listened to everything we liked and did a great job executing a flawless ensemble of our favorite foods! He made the cheese perfectly- it was so delicious (Traditional Swiss) and we were happy to be able to get a two burner table so my son could eat his chicken at the same time! Great location, great service!
