Our server was great, food was par. I would recommend sticking with the cheese and the desert. Go here for snacks rather than a romantic meal. For a similar price you can eat Ruth's Chris. I think the choice for my next big occassion is obvious.

We have always been huge fans of The Melting Pot in the past and it has been one of those special restaurants that my husband and I like to go to just the two of us. This time we brought our kids, thinking we'd introduce them to fondue. Even though we paid FULL PRICE per person, we did NOT get double the food. Seems like if you pay for four people, you should get food for four people
The service was slow and our server was very chatty. We weren't there to visit with her, but she told us lots of personal stories. It was quite odd. We had to wait for refills and the check, too. For that kind of money ($200 for the four of us) I expect EXCELLENT service.
We will think twice about visiting again.

Floors dirty, the food was sub par, small lobster tail was mushy, sausage was terrible, bread cubes were stale, should have had a bread basket while waiting for stuff to cook, overall worst place I have even went to and the prices were too high for the food quality.

I went to the melting pot in Troy to try and relive the night I proposed to my wife, however the restaurant was nothing like the one I have been which was in Ann Arbor. We had to pay 100.00 dollars to get ther romance package to get what they call the best table " most romantic" it was nothing more than a booth for two in the corner of the place with a slightly higher than normal divider... the place was very loud and I could hear conversations from the tables in that section. The one in Ann Arbor you felt like you were in a private place all to yourselves. In all it cost me 240.00 dollars for an ok meal and horrible atmosphere !!!
Would not recommend going here for any kind of special occasion .

We have visited many Melting Pots over the years and various locations. Food was exceptional as always, however our experience was not. We arrived for a late lunch early dinner at our reservation time at 2:30pm and did not leave until 6:10pm. The length of our meal was ridiculously long. We had at least a 20 to 30 minute wait between courses. And on several occasions we had to get up to find someone to get our server. The reasons we needed the server was for additional dipping items for cheese, chocolate and our bill. We have never sat at a MP for almost 4 hours for a meal. When we come we always get the 4 course meal and know it is at least a 2 to 2.5 hour experience. The restaurant did not seemed overly busy as we were the ONLY party in the side room. We can say our server was very nice and pleasant but the speed of the service was below satisfactory.

Upon arrival parking lot was under construction which had very limited parking spaces. Had to wait 15 minutes for one to open up. The restaurant should do something to draw you in based on the parking inconvienience.

Atmosphere was good with low noise level which allowed for easy communication. However, Service was extremely slow. Took 2 1/2 hours to get through dinner then had to chase down waiter to bring the bill.

It was a birthday dinner and waiter said he would bring a desert out for the birthday guest. That never arrived at the table.

Would likely not go back.

Overpriced, difficult to park, uncomfortable booth. If you go, just get the cheese and chocolate—skip the entree. Beef was tough, lobster not very good. It was a pain having to cook and time the entree. Also, messy! Cheese and chocolate courses were good, though.

A place we chose for our 5 year wedding anniversary was not an exciting experience like I anticipated.

I’ve been to the melting pot in 3 states and have nothing but good things to say about the food and service. However, the last time we went for sweetest day over the weekend the service was not up to normal melting pot standards. I’d still recommend the place to anyone I know because I’ve never had an experience like this with the restaurants but felt very neglected this time.

Not a place if you want a good entree. Cheese and chocolate fondue was good but when you have to boil your chicken, pork or steak that is a real turn off. Prices are astronomical for what you get. If my bill was half of what it actually was it would still be overpriced. I can say that I will never be back.

Wouldn't have minded it being overpriced if

- the waitress hadn't phoned it in. took 15 minutes every time to check on us, never asked if we wanted more drinks even though they were clearly empty, rushed through the meal explanations, and had a poor attitude
- it hadn't taken 2 hours to get 3/4 of the way through the meal, forcing us to skip the fondue, which was the main reason for going
- we hadn't been seated next to a noisy couple when the restaurant was empty and other tables were available, wanting a romantic evening for a special anniversary occasion

$135, 2 hours, and a really poor experience later, we went home

Been here 3 times in last few months. First two times were great. This time we brought my mom as a special surprise. Service was awful. Her water never got refilled. We only got refills on our soda at very end of meal. We ordered our chocolate right away when we were done with our entrees. Waited 25 minutes then waiter came out finally and said are you done cooking so I can put the chocolate in. We were done when we ordered our chocolate 25 minutes ago. Table behind us came in over a half hour after us and left at the same time and only because we rushed the chocolate because my child was getting tired. I know it takes time to eat here but over 2 hours is unacceptable when we order immediately at sitting down and tables around us are getting served faster. We had no special requests for food or ordered anything not on the menu. Chocolate was not great but probably because we rush through without waiting long enough for it to melt because at this point we wanted to leave. If I hadn't been here several times before with great food and service I probably wouldn't come back. I will return hoping for a better experience next time. Other than our waiter food was good, sat on time with our reservation, value good ( it is a little pricy so I expect to be treated as a customer and not an inconvenience).

Great experience. Due to the constructions close by the restaurant, there is a lot of dust and hard to find a parking place close by.
My only disappointment was the size of each portion of food. Definitely they need to improve because for a couple, the size is too small and you have to pay each time that you want a refil.

Ive only been here twice, both for special occasions. 3 years ago our experience was one to remember, ambience, our waitress, the manager, our meal everything. This experience was different. It wouldn’t stop me from trying it again, but I dont know how common this issue is. Our meat meal was cooked in a wine base and a oil base. And for some reason, the smoke was too intense. I had to step out 3 times just to get my eyes to stop watering! I had 5 other people at my table who all had burning eyes. Only one other was watering like me though. A manager seemed semi concerned and came over twice. Turned down the heat, and asked once more if we were ok.
Our waiter didn’t seem to notice the tears and makeup all over our faces lol.
It was all their first time dining, and I had wished it was a better experience for them.
Sadly I didn’t like the tastes of either broths. But the chocolate made up for it!!
So overall this experience wasn’t the best and I wasn’t able to enjoy my $45 meal, but I would try it again. The server was nice and funny and the overall food was good.
