We always enjoy your experience there. The noise level can be low or higher depending on where you sit. The service was pretty good but there was a while when he was gone for a really long time. I prob won’t get filet next time because it’s so easy to over cook and you just should never have over cooked filet.

It was a great experience. My boyfriend & I rarely get the opportunity to have date night so I was thrilled to find a restaurant that was both interactive & delicious. The dessert was outstanding, they give you such a great variety of fruits & snacks to dip in the chocolates. I would rate this a 11/10 experience!

My boys and I have made Melting Pot our Mother’s Day tradition for the last 10 or so years. Every year has been fabulous except this year.

When I made the reservation through Open Table their open time was 4:00 pm (we used to go for lunch around 1:00 pm). I got an email the day before Mother’s Day their hours started at 11:00 am but I had already made other arrangements for brunch.

Then new this year the restaurant created a Mother’s Day menu we had to order off of. This didn’t work for us because we don’t eat the cheese fondue but the server said I “had” to order one 4-course meal. Additionally, my 13 year had to pick the adult option in order to have enough to eat which means another 4-course meal (more cheese fondue we didn’t want). The server suggested if we didnt want the 3 cheese fondue portions we could add more to dessert so I opted for 1 cheese fondue portion (even though I pay for 3). However, when dessert came there was not 3 portions and the server confirmed it and said he would bring more food to dip just let him know. When we did we had even less portions. Needless to say I paid for three meals but didn’t get the portions for three cheese fondue or dessert fondue.

Lastly, the service was awful. What usually is about an hour and a half experience turned into almost 3 hours at the restaurant because there was a long stretch of time between each course and I rarely seen the server.

Melting pot apparently have a very bad day :( it took 1.75 hours to finally get our entrées of chicken, steak and shrimp. When they delivered the meat for us to cook, the steak was still partially frozen. When asked, the manager did come over and apologized then informed us that the kitchen was backed up. When you come to this restaurant you do expect for her to take some time but having cheese, bread and apples only going to chew out. Was ridiculous. I would hope that this is not a normal occurrence :(

We were at the Melting Pot for our anniversary back in August, 2018, and again 5/5/2019. The server (Paul) was extremely helpful and was around frequently enough to keep our drinks filled but not to the extent to be bothersome. The food was good and as usual the chocolate turtle melt for dessert was exceptional.

My husband and I really enjoyed our Anniversary dinner at The Melting Pot. Very private seating and very quiet. The food was outstanding and the service was excellent. I have to eat gluten free and there were many choices. You can take your time and enjoy your dinner. You won’t go away hungry.

I would recommend this to a family member or friend for the experience. It’s a fun thing to do for bonding or an event like a birthday, anniversary etc.... I didn’t enjoy the alpine cheese fondue, it was very very strong with spices. Otherwise the meat, salad and chocolate were excellent.
