Our server was wonderful and the food was amazing as always. But we had a problem when we first arrived. We made a reservation earlier in the week for 7:30. We showed up a few minutes early and were told that we needed to wait until our reservation time to be seated, which is no problem we understood. But then we are waiting and waiting and finally over 10 min after our reservation time finally someone came to seat us. I was just shocked, I would not have made a reservation if I knew that it didn’t matter.

I was there with a long time friend to celebrate her birthday for the second year in a row. It was a great place, quiet for catching up without having to talk loudly over other people or music. This is also the place I have treated our son and daughter-in-law to a romantic dinner for two for their first and second anniversaries. They both thoroughly enjoyed their dinners as well.

I wanted to take my mother out for dinner somewhere where we could have time to talk and visit without the distraction of a busy environment. While the Melting Pot is, indeed, very busy it never feels that way. The atmosphere created is intimate and lends itself to conversations easily. Our server, whose name escapes me at this moment, was lovely. She was helpful in decisions as it was my mother’s first time visiting Melting Pot. She even helped me choose the vodka in my dirty martini and while gently discouraging my mother from choosing the Cajun meats to go with the Mojo base. It was a lovely way to celebrate Mother’s Day. Thank you.

After coming to this restaurant off and on for several years this was maybe the last. We only got the cheese fondue and the desert fondue. There was not enough cheese fondue for the amount of dippers served. The bread dippers were all stale and hard. The desert fondue did not have enough dippers for the amount of fondue. We even used the apples from the cheese fondue and still had left over of the desert fondue. We ended up going somewhere else after to fill ourselves for the evening.

The Melting Pot was such a fun dining experience. It was the first time my husband and I had ever gone and our waiter did such a great job at explaining all the tips and tricks to us. It was a little pricey, but it was soooo worth it. The dessert was by far my favorite part but everything else was amazing as well. My husband and I will definitely be going back! I highly recommend this restaurant for a date night or any special occasion!

I love going to the Melting Pot as a special treat. My daughter and I had their Easter Special and enjoyed every bite. The food was great. The service was exceptional! This is a restaurant where you go to spend time with people and enjoy their company since you will be there a while. (Just the nature of a fondue meal.) We are looking forward to our next visit! 😃

I have always loved the Melting Pot. They did not disappoint. Great service as always. Quiet ambience for relaxation and conversation. It is a pricey place so I usually reserve it for a special occasion or date night every once in awhile. It is so worth the money!

We always have a large enough party where we have 2 pots. One cooking style is Bourguignonne and the other is Mojo. Mojo pot was great as usual. For some reason everything that went into the Bourguignonne pot would stick to the side or bottom. That was not the case on previous visits. The folks that used the Bourguignonne pot were very frustrated and may not go back again. I don't know what has changed, but please correct it!

Never a disappointment....worth the time and money to experience this unique and fun time out. It is not something I would do "all of the time", however special occasions or a nice lunch or evening "get-a-way" is totally worth it.

Overall we had a very nice time. I made reservations days in advance that were confirmed for 730 and we were not seated until 8 pm. 30 hours prior I changed the reservations from 3 to 4 that I believed would not make a big difference. It was our first time attending for most of us and it was a very special occasion. The Cheese Fondue was overpowering with Wine and unlike most fondue with wine. All of us agreed with the same taste. The waitress was quick to offer a different choice after she was able to make it back to the table and the spinach dip with vegetable broth was delicious. Unfortunately there was so much time between the correction that we were no longer hungry and dinner quickly came (we ended up nibbling on the fruits and breads etc not knowing there would be a change of fondue ). The meat selections were wonderful but again, we were full. One thing that I would bring to your patrons attention, when one is ordering something that is a spicy choice of meat, that flavour penetrates into the same dipping broth for those that can not eat spicy foods. It was tolerable but we enjoyed the experience. The chocolate we were not sure if it was to be cold or not but it was tasty. We did not complain or ask too many questions as we were there celebrating a special occasion not so much the experience. Our waitress was very busy that night and professional. What mattered the most was those we were with. The process from arrival to completion was 4.5 hours leaving shortly after 11.

Unfortunately a group across from us were so intoxicated they were obnoxious. They were so loud we could hardly chat without having to yell at times. I wish the restaurant would have said something or handled things better. However, the food & service were wonderful. Can’t wait to return!

What a great place for a date. I’m hard of hearing and always worry about being able to hear my date when we’re out but we were seated in a small, semi-private room in one of the booths. I had no noise distractions from anywhere else in the restaurant. Low lighting, quite, great food that’s fun to prepare, top notch service & friendly staff. I will definitely be back.

The portions are small considering the price. The wait staff is friendly but were not very responsive to our table and we literally had to seek her out twice for service. She explained the process, brought the raw foods, then disappeared - including after the meal when we were ready for the chocolate fondue. It arrived so late that we got it in "to go" containers. This is good for a happy hour or lunch event where you have plenty of time to spare. The facilities are nice
