                                                      Have been here 2x, once for a birthday celebration in a group so it was quite fun (different from just sitting to have dinner). Second time was for Valentines Date, reservations were required but it was definitely fun and romantic for such a date.

                                                      The only negative thing I have to say about The Melting Pot is that it was a little smoky for my taste due to the table cooking. But the meal was absolutely fantastic and incredibly delicious. Our waiter was friendly, funny, and checked up on us regularly. We went for our one-year anniversary and left with full bellies and huge smiles on our faces. Thanks!

                                                      Our server was great and full of personality. Our table location was a bit dark and hard to read menu and converse with others. Little pricey for what we were served. Cheese mix was excellent, cooking style for meats was great, meats were ok but shrimp is highly recommended. Dessert was fun and the choices were tasty. Once or twice a year it’s something different with food that was satisfactory.

                                                      Food was OK and the service was slow and terrible. If you’re going to charge that much money it’s important to deliver the total experience.

                                                      I have been going to Melting Pot (various locations) for over a decade. I am not that happy with the many changes to their menu but I do like their charcuterie plate (ordered it twice) but everything else about the place was amazing. The only negative aspect of our dinner was that these very loud people were behind us getting drunker and more belligerent as the night continued. They started to verbally abuse the manager over some matter related to batter. We started playing heavy metal (Pantera's Demons be Driven) at full blast to drown them out and it worked eventually.

                                                      We have gone to the Westlake Melting Pot for special occasions since they opened their doors (approx 16yrs ago) . The restaurant seems run down now and not properly cared for. We waited for 20 min for our reservation and were only seated after hostess overheard us talking about leaving. The manager was our server, they were turning away incoming guests saying they were filled up, but 50% of the tables by us were empty the entire night. We were eating our cheese fondue and brought salads while eating fondue. Why?? It's impossible to fondue food with salad plate in front of the pot. The table next to us waited 1 hr before a server even came to their table. They were walking out when manger encountered them and helped them out. Clearly they are short staffed. Hannah did her best to make light of situation, but honestly I don' t think we will ever return. I am saddened to see the restautant go downhill. The restaurant has always lacked in ambience but made up for that with great service and food in the past. It was a fun and romantic place to go. We will miss it. Hopefully they will turn it around.

                                                      Second time at this location. Service was not good. We were there for close to 3 hours. Mainly because we were often left sitting with no food, no water, just waiting on someone to remember we were sitting in the back corner and to come help us.

                                                      We have been going to the Melting Pot for years and it has always been a wonderful place to celebrate special occasions. We have been there for birthdays, graduations and most recently an anniversary. The ambiance is intimate and charming. There is a variety of food selections and fondue cooking is so much fun and unique. Can’t wait to go again!

                                                      Waiter may have been new, nice guy but was not at the level I'm used to there. Putting the menu on a single cards seems cheap, like a short cut? Food quality was good as always.

                                                      This was our third visit in two weeks. The first time, we were so enthralled by the experience and the fact that they could accommodate our vegetarian kid AND our gluten free kid, that the other issues were not of concern. But, on the second trip with the kids and our last trip as just a couple, we can’t look past it anymore. I don’t know if they are understaffed or what other issue there is. But, the service is incredibly slow. For example, this time, we actually timed how long it took to clear our plates and the cookware after we finished eating our entrees and before we ordered dessert — 32 minutes!!! We even pushed our dirty dishes to the side of the table as a signal. Dessert was lukewarm. It is a great concept. And, truly, an amazing set of options for a gluten free kid. But, we don’t plan to go back.

                                                      We love going to this place. It's expensive so we can't swing it more than once a year, but it's always a highlight! Ask for lover's lane to sit in a very romantic area of the restaurant. You won't see any other customers! Food is amazing and is quite the experience to cook yourself. Dinner takes a long time (2.5 hours), but totally worth it!

                                                      We went for a family night out, there was a small kid screaming behind us to whole time. There was nothing for the children(no kids menus) and they forgot to turn the burners on, so this delayed our meal.

                                                      Geoffrey, our waiter, is terrific – very attentive to our needs and great customer service. Super personality. Overall we love your restaurant - been going there for years but unfortunately seems like some of the food quality has gone down hill :/ we were slightly disappointed. Desserts for example seem frozen and have that stale frozen taste…

                                                      I expect amazing service for such high prices. Also the food was sub par and not worth it. It was my wife’s birthday and felt it wasn’t very special. If I’m paying these prices I expect awesome service and a memorable birthday.

                                                      Restaurant smelled bad when we got there. Hostess wouldn’t seat us because 2 of our party of 9 weren’t there yet, the restaurant was empty and we were confused why we had to stand up front. Total meal took 3 hours. Portions were small, and we had to split meals because the cost was so high. Menu is confusing and the waiter tried to talk us into a meal that was $67/person. I mean, who wouldn’t want to spend $1,000 for fondue for 9??When we ordered shared meals, the waiter made it feel awkward. The burner on the table kept cutting off during the meal. Carpet was ugly and ambiance was dark and cheap looking. Felt like I was in an office. I don’t understand carpet in a restaurant....probably why it smells so bad in there. The desert was great and the only reason we didn’t just walk out. Waiter struggled with splitting the bill and double charged one of us. We also ordered 3 “4 item” combos, and he charged us for 4 “3 item combos” which was over $25 difference. We had to ask him to fix it. Bottom line - if you’re looking for a fun dessert, it’s a good option. If you want a full meal, don’t waste your time.

                                                      This place is pricey, no doubt... but it IS 4 courses. It was a great time with great friends, and worth it in that respect. We spent just over 3 hrs there. It's definitely an experience to have at least on special occasions.

                                                      A birthday dinner for our daughter. Enjoyed the dining experience.

                                                      It had been a long time since our last visit to The Melting Pot. It was fun and conversation engaging to use the fondue pots for cooking. The cheese fondue and breads was huge. The salad was fresh and well prepared and the main course consists of several meats. We ordered the Thousand Oaks four course dinner along with the traditional wine flight which is very fair priced. Bring your appetite and plan to spend about two hours savoring the different flavors.

                                                      We went on a Sunday night, our waiter never asked for our drinks or got us drinks I had to walk and ask the hostess. He kept disappearing for 20 min periods. Our food also had hair in it

                                                      The food was good as expected. But the waiter, however nice, was not attentive. Burning pots were left on the table, creating smoke that stunk and irritated our eyes. After asking several times, the pots (multiple courses) were not picked up. We had to hunt down staff to refill water (twice), and the salads 'to go" were never given to us. I received a dirty fondue stick, and after asking and waiting for a replacement, I finally got up and took one from another table. At $55++ per person, I expect more.
