The Melting Pot - Towson Ratings and Reviews
We went for a date night and specified that it was a date night, yet and still we were placed next to two different kids birthday parties. When asked to move, we were moved but only a couple booths over where the noise level was still exceptionally loud. Very disappointed with this visit but our server made up for a lot of it.
My wife and I had a tradition going that we would have a nice meal (without the kids) every year around the holidays. After a couple years of not having the opportunity, we decided to visit the Melting Pot in Towson. We have been to Melting Pot a few times before but this was the first visit to the location in Towson. This is also my first visit to Melting Pot since I had to adopt a gluten-free diet over 4 years ago.
The staff were very inviting and helpful. I suffer from gluten intolerance and have to eat gluten free to avoid getting sick. The waitress was extremely helpful explaining the options and the menu was clearly labeled. In many cases, certain items were gluten free without any modifications required. In some other cases, items could be switched out for items are safe for me to eat.
One of the primary considerations if you are eating gluten-free (due to allergy/sensitivity) some decisions have to made for the entire table. The nice thing with Melting Pot is there is still plenty of choices available so my wife and I did not have to be restricted to a single option which is a common frustration when we eat out with very limited options to choose from.
We had a very delicious meal. The GF bread which we shared was very good. My wife (who still eats gluten-based bread) mentioned the bread was very good and you could not tell it was GF. Most GF breads have a distinctive texture and tend to be drier. Their bread was very good. I also enjoyed the GF cake and brownies for dessert. Both were delicious and had a good texture.
While we do not eat at Melting Pot, we will definitely be back to this location in the future due to great food, great ambiance and fantastic service.
Had a fun experience, my boyfriend and I came here for the first time for our one year! The meat section wasn't so great but the cheese and chocolate were amazing!! It was all over a very fun experience. The only bad things I have to say is that it took forever to get a drink once we first got there, and I later found out that on special occasions they bring something special out for you.-No one asked us if we were there for a special event! Though we did tell our server that it was our one year she still didn't bring out anything special, it wasn't even busy!
The Melting Pot is my favorite restaurant and usually celebrate a special occasion when we go! It was my birthday dinner on Saturday November 4th. It was the worst experience I have had at the restaurant. We were a party of four. Arrived at 6:30pm and didn't leave until after 9:30. The service was horrible and just made for a terrible experience. It ruined plans we had for after dinner. The manager was nice enough to take money off the bill. Don't know when I will be back!
We’ve visited this restaurant many times and it used to be an intimate, quiet experience for a date or even a nice conversation within a group. This visit was loud and there was no intimacy at all. The food was good, however after the cheese and salad, we waited over 35 minutes to even receive our main course to begin cooking. Of course the cooking takes time and by then we were a bit irritated considering once it’s done, you are eating two bites of meat at a time while you are waiting for the next two bites to cook. We usually love this place but the atmosphere has changed and I’m not sure that we will return. Our server was great, very friendly.
Service was terrible waitress came back every hour seated for over an hour with no drinks waitress was not giving us the same attention as other guests across from us making our attendance at the restaurant from 730 pm til 11 would not recommend to anyone really ruined my birthday for me
Came in 10/20 for my wedding anniversary dinner with my wife. Food was great as usual, but waitress was very inattentive. Solid 25 min gaps between end of app and her bringing out the entre. Then another 15 min of her being MIA after her seeing we wanted the check. GM was around and noticed us waiting and took care of us. Won't deter us from coming back, this was a one in a 30 trip occurrence.
The Melting Pot is definitely an experience. Nothing like a normal dinning experience. I really recommend it for first dates because it makes you interact with the people or person at the table. But on top of the experience the food is delicious. And you won't leave hungry.
I absolutely love this place! I'm here pretty often. How come I haven't received a gift yet? Lol I like the atmosphere. The food is simplistic enough to make and the cocktails are great. The staff there is amazing especially the hosts they're so sweet! My fave is the Cesar salad and the Land and Sea. Just a nice restaurant in general.
I had a great time,everything was great! Our waiter was very nice and explained everything on the menu very well. The food was delicious ,especially the dessert. It's a great restaurant to celebrate a special occasion.It was a fun place to celebrate my birthday. I wii definitely recommend it to my friends and family!!1
