Oh boy oh boy oh boy
One of my favorite restaurants for both the food and the fondue experience. Never disappoints.
Had a great experience for my wife’s birthday! Server (Jordan) was great as well..
Nathan was a great waiter. He did not rush us and the food was fantastic. Great night out and a relaxing time
We love coming here
It was a special birthday celebration as I am a Leap Day baby and only get a birthday every 4 years. They gave us a nice little "nook" table where it was quiet and we had a wonderful evening. Our server Jason was thoughtful, but made himself scarce at the appropriate times.
Julia was fantastic.
Love this place!
Once again, awesome dinner at the Melting pot. Quality food, excellent service, LOTS to eat, pricy but every time we go there we had an excellent moment.
Been there a couple times and have been very happy each time .We enjoy a nice quiet evening without the rush.Great night for couples!
Never had a bad meal or experience yet at MP. Its all one of our favorite special date night places!
The menu now has a good variety of items. Always a nice slow paced meal....something different!
Daughters birthday. Melting Pot was her choice.
It was good, it felt slightly understaffed and that our waiter had a lot of tables and we sat around for a while. The food was very good. For how much it cost the presentation was not always the best, but still very good. We love the melting pot for our dates!!
We love The Melting Pot however, this trip was disappointing as we had terrible service! We are used to excellent service and we were told not to worry we would have excellent service but that was not the case. We ordered things that we never received. It just was a huge disappointment.
I love the Melting Pot, these is the 4 one I’ve been to in the 3rd state. I highly recommend for date night and special occasions. It’s never rushed and the food is amazing especially cheese and the chocolate.
My husband has celiacs and they were amazing about addressing his dietary needs without making a big deal of it. It was my sons birthday and they presented him with a special treat. All of the waiters and managers were working their tails off and doing do in a professional, friendly manner. Can’t wait to go back!
Date w my 8 year old son :)
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.
Always have a great experience at this location!
Loved the whole experience! Everything was delicious and fun! Hope to return again in the future!
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.
Always a wonderful experience at the Melting Pot
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.
My wife loves coming here for her birthday
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.
An absolutely phenomenal experience! Service was prompt, cheese was amazing, the filet tips melted in my mouth. Will definitely be going back to this location again!
We have been Fondue "junkies" for over 35+ years. MP usually offers a special on Holidays such as Valentine's Day, New Year's Eve, etc, they never disappoint! This is when we take advantage of the "special" which includes a house salad, cheese fondue, a variety of entrees including beef, lobster, shrimp, chicken served with some veggies, lots of sauces and the finale: chocolate fondue served with yummy sweets all for $50!
Each person is given 3 forks which are color coded for you to cook your food. DO NOT steal anyone else's fork, they will get mad at you!
Your 1st course will be the salad, then comes the nutty, melted Swiss cheese fondue highlighted with a splash of white wine. You are given a choice for your preferred cooking style, we prefer Coq Au Vin. Your Server takes care of everything including, lighting and extinguishing the burners. Be careful, it is hot. Many Fondue restaurants do NOT allow young children due to a burning risk but, I have never seen anyone burn themselves.
Spear your protein, place it in the pot and let it cook. MP provides you with your own plate nestled with "compartments" for your sauces. ALWAYS, remove the item from the Fondue fork and transfer it to the plate, the tip is extremely hot and will burn your mouth.
Heads up, you WILL loose an item in the pot. Don't fear MP provides you with a "safety net" to scoop out the rogue tidbit.
One thinks that the quantity of food will not satisfy your hunger, do not be fooled, you will leave feeling very satisfied.
Relax before the Chocolate fondue course with a glass of wine or coffee. Too full for the Dessert? No worries, MP will give you a voucher for you to return and enjoy the desert course at a future date with no expiration!!!
Always awesome and fun!
First time eating here. It is my friends favorite restaurant. Intestine please and experience.
Justin was a fabulous server and we enjoyed the meal very much.
Service is always terrible. Always.
Went to the melting pot with my family of three. Great service throughout. Loved our server!
Love a double boiler
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
