Very knowledgeable, personable, and friendly staff. Our server Claudia was amazing. She explained everything to us since we were first timers and the menu seemed a little overwhelming but she helped make the experience enjoyable. When it came down to the dessert menu we asked about the cookie butter one (and as sad as this is, the husband and I never had cookie butter) and she explained it for us and brought us a sample to try. LET ME TELL YOU that I have no idea what I've done with my life for not ever trying cookie butter. It was heaven on a spoon! we substituted the white chocolate for milk as Claudia's recommendation and we were not disappointed. Everything was so delicious. it was pricey but the quantity and quality of the food was definitely worth it. Keep in mind this takes about 90 min to 2 hours to get through the 4 course meal. But the service paces it to you. A great place to go to celebrate a special occasion.

They certainly took care of people on Valentine's Day! The complimentary items were a great addition to an excellent experience. Our waitress was outstanding!

Our server was outstanding. I think her name was janelle? Sorry I don’t remember, but she had very long blonde/brown hair. One of my guests have never been there before and she was VERY patient with him!! She made the best cheese fondue I have had and her level of service was second to none. Being in the industry myself, I noticed that they were busier then usually and she absolutely crushed service. In fact the entire team that night pulled together and was working as one unit, not allowing the servers to appear weeded!! I will be back.

Our waiter Zach was great and we enjoyed our conversation with him. Even though we arrived 15 minutes before closing the hostess was very friendly and we never felt rushed by Zach. We shall return again to the Towson location

The greeters set the wrong mood for the evening. Upon arrival, it was early and snowing. I dropped my Wife and young Son off out front while I parked. The greeters refused to seat them, even though the restaurant was basically empty with the early reservations, and made them wait in the doorway until I arrived after parking the car. The entire "group" of greeters / hostesses, whatever, were engaged with their cell phones and inner conversation to even acknowledge the request to be seated at the table. The waiter made every attempt to reset our mood, but it was difficult. Also, we were there for a birthday reservation and made that VERY CLEAR when we made the reservation, but the hostesses were too caught up in the cell phones and each other to even acknowledge the Birthday OR the food allergy we clearly stated with the reservation as well.

Experience was great! Everything you’d expect from the Melting Pot delivered! Food was great and service was top notch (present without being overbearing.. offered great suggestions as well!).

Look forward to returning soon.

We frequent Melting Pot and have typically had a great experience. This weekend, our service was especially slow. It took us more than 2 hours, start to finish, to finish our meal...even though we knew what we wanted and ordered it all as soon as we were seated. We waited about 10-15 minutes between each course and had to ask several times (and then wait) for additional sauces and water refills.

For my first time being there, the serving staff was so nice and amazing! Also, I loved how you could customize everything with your dishes and it just made it all so much more fun. This will definitely be a place I go back to for a fun date night again.

We loved the experience, this was my boyfriends first time there and he said that he enjoyed it as well. It was good to have a slow paced meal where we could just relax and enjoy each other’s company. My only issue was when a little girls Birthday party was placed right next to our table. I feel that larger parties with children should have been placed not near people who were there to relax. We weren’t the only table that was not amused by this . All in all a good night though

It has been years since we dined at the Melting Pot and it was even better than we remembered.

Fresh, tasty, great service, and different.

It is expensive but well worth it for a treat once in a while.

A little disorganized upon our arrival a number of groups waiting to be seated - we were seated 15 minutes after our reservation time. Once seated our experience was great. Our server, Georgie, was excellent. Very personable and attentive. All of the fondue servings were great - cheese, entree and chocolate. Definitely will be back!
