Server was great. He checked on us frequently. We had an outstanding time with him. He made conversation and we just laughed the whole time. Cheese was delicious. Chocolate, by far, the best!!!!!

Server was terrible. Took 20 min to great us and another 20 to bring our drinks, even though it was slow. Quality of the beef was poor and lobster wasn’t cut. Never mentioned the extra charge for the Mojo cooking oil. Not sure if we will be back to the Towson Melting Pot, Boca Florida is much better.

The food was okay, but we did not enjoy the experience. It took 3+ hours to get through the 4-course menu. Having to cook one bite at a time, and keeping straight how long the chicken, seafood, steak, etc. had been in the pots was just a hassle. It was on my bucket list of places I wanted to try - I'm glad I went but would never go back.

Server was clearly over-worked. Waited over 20 minutes once seated to be greeted, every course there was significant delays. server did not engage guests during meal prep - felt like she was rushed and distracted.

It was my boyfriend’s birthday and his first melting pot experience. He loved it! The service was great. I have had servers in the past with a bit more flare and presentation. However he did fine.. guess I am being picky since it was my boyfriend’s first time I wanted the wow factor. Food was excellent as always. We did find it odd that some tables that were around us and vacated as we were sat.. where still dirty as we left.. maybe they let the cooking surface cool first?

The food was wonderful, and our server, Meghan, was very personable and attentive. Couple of things I would comment on - (1) There was a server (not Meghan) waiting on another table who spoke EXTREMELY loud - it was very disruptive every time she came back to the table to check on the patrons. (2) the other issue that we had was that when we made the reservation we were asked if there were any allergies, and we indicated that there was a nut allergy. When our server took out order, she acknowledged that she knew about the nut allergy. When the dessert order was placed, we inquired, because it was available in the past, if you could order a slice of cheesecake as an extra (cheesecake used to be part of the regular dessert platter). Our server told us that it was and she brought out the cheesecake with the dessert. Unfortunately, we found out after we had tasted the cheesecake that the cheesecake brought was peanut butter. Obviously, with a nut allergy we were unable to eat the cheesecake. When our server returned and we said something about the cheesecake being peanut butter flavor - at first, she just acknowledged that it was peanut butter - then when we reminded her about the peanut allergy she was very apologetic and checked to make sure we were ok. We had immediately taken Benadryl and took additional medication upon returning home. At the very least, I think that the cheesecake should have been removed from the bill and a manager should have checked with us. Very disappointed by how this was handled, and I would definitely recommend that peanut butter not be the flavor of cheesecake available with so many people having nut allergies.

I went there for my birthday, made the reservation for 915. We get there and were told they are backed up so we thought we'd get seated at 930 the latest. We didn't get seated until 10:05. We didnt see our waiter for 20 minutes after we got seated. No drinks. Then finally put our drink order in and wait another 20 minutes for that. Each course went waited forever took get. We didn't leave there until 12 and they close at 11. The food was good but the service and wait time was rediculous. We received discounts on the bill because the waiter knew he messed up our night. I wouldn't go back and its sad because they're food was very good.

Our experience at the Melting pot was absolutely terrible. We had a reservation for 8:15 yet we did not get sat until 8:50. We sat at the bar to wait for our table, we did not get acknowledged for 5 minutes and did not get drinks for another 10 minutes, and it wasn't even from the bar tender. When we finally got to our table, almost 45 minutes after our reservation, it was not clean. Our server was slow to get to our table taking almost 10 minutes to get us drinks. He was also disgustingly sweaty and kept using his hands to wipe his forehead. The fondue and main course were good, but not impressive. Definitely not worth the insane prices. The desert was amazing, however. The brownies and other dippers were perfect and delicious. We did not finish until after 11. Overall, the experience was ok at best but that was it. My friends and I will not be returning to this establishment. I will not be recommending The Melting Pot to anyone.

Went on Sunday evening, must have been busier than usual due to the President's day holiday. We were able to get a table at around 9p. Had a great time, we went with a couple friends who had never done the full experience. We always have great service at the Towson location, and this night was no exception. Our server, Andrew I believe, was very friendly. It was easy to see how busy he was as the restaurant was packed, but he made us feel welcome and was great about bringing extra dippers. Overall had a great experience.

I took my boyfriend and his mother here to celebrate their birthdays and figured it would be a really cool dining experience. The meal you cook yourself in a fondue pot and all of the ingredients are very fresh. The dinner was amazing, however our server lacked time management and was not very attentive to our needs and forgot multiple things down to just asking for lemon for our waters. However, one of the hostess/managers Caroline apologized on behalf of the poor service and made sure we got our food in a timely manner. At the end we got the check and were completely astonished that she cut the check in half. On our way out we thanked her so much for saving the night and making my boyfriend and his mother’s birthday one to remember. Definitely recommend coming here.

Go for the experience more than the food. Service was a little slow and while the experience overall was fine, we felt rushed to cook our food and eat it quickly before the next course came out rather than getting to more fully enjoy both cooking and eating.

Went with a good friend after a movie, we have been to this location before, and as usual it was fantastic. The service is always friendly and attentive. We had recently had a disappointing experience at the Columbia location, and we decided that we would only go to the Towson one, and we were very glad to find that Towson's standards of service and food is still the best. We did the Towson Big Night Out menu, with a couple substitutions, and it was great! Our server was wonderful, a very attentive and friendly server, was so nice about bringing us extra items. All of the staff appear to be Towson University students, and we have never had a bad experience at this location, the staff is always very friendly and caring. Overall a great experience, can't wait to come back!

Our waitress was extremely friendly and very informative.( I wish I could remember her name but I do know she graduated recently and was studying sign language) which we thought was very cool! She brought our son a congratulations plate because we were celebrating a great report card which was a nice touch. The food was amazing and although we had been before, this was the first time our son had been and it is now his favorite restaurant and wants to come back soon ! Such a great time and food and service was exceptional- we had the 4 course meal . Our favorite was probably the teriyaki steak and wild mushroom sachetti. Highly recommend the Coq Au Vin broth as well.
