Service was awful. Waited 20 minutes for drinks I got mine the others didn’t until I had to ask when the first course came. It was only soda. I asked the hostess to find our server. First course of cheese sever never turned in burner- had to ask another waiter. Meal came never was asked if we needed anything. Others cleared our table and took a refill drink order. Dessert came and burner turned on 3 never got hot. Just an overall awful experience.

Had a wonderful date night at the melting pot. All of the food was fresh, and high quality ingredients. Will definitely be back again, because it's one of my favorite ways to eat food. It's different and enjoyable. Definitely a conversation starter. The wait staff was wonderful, and very on point. The dinner ran smoothly with no hiccups, and we didn't wait for anything. Will definitely be back.

Been here plenty of times always good. The only complain I have is our server Isaiah. He was all over the place, confused by our simple request of sharing on entree and making a big fuss. Wouldn’t want him again but definitely won’t stop us from going

Came here for an anniversary dinner and our server, Deanna was great. The cheese fondue was great. Lots of fun things to dip into it. The salad was delicious. Greens with a raspberry dressing and candies pecans and Gorgonzola. The main course was a little confusing. Didn’t realize we had to cook our dinner ourselves. But it was still nice, and the Coq au Vin was very good. The various sauces to go with the meats were a nice touch. Dessert was awesome. Chocolate with fruit and some other goodies. Delicious.

Melting Pot has long been a family favorite. We tend to eat quickly and the pace of a fondue cooking meal forces us to slow down, talk more, laugh more, and enjoy each other more!

We love this restaurant but this trip wasn’t the best. Oil pot was turned up too hot and burned a lot of the meats within 15-20 seconds in the oil. By the time we were able to get our waitress, two guests had burned lips... we traded the oil for a broth. They did apologize for the oil pot being turned up too high. Costly dinner for six when two guests spend dinner with ice on their lips and leave with lip blisters from the oil. Disappointing this trip.

Really slow service. Pretty sure after dessert we waited for a half hour for our check while our waitress socialized. No water refills as well so we had nothing to drink during dessert. Where’s the manager of this place? Definitely not walking around caring about the dining experience.

Our waiter was slow and inattentive with long gaps between bringing things out. Probably 1/2 hour between salads and actual food. Then he dropped a full plate of food it shattered all over right next to the table and then did not even clean it up. After a very long time we had to flag down another waiter to get someone to clean it up and refill water .

Food was excellent

The service was subpar. Server forgot 2 main dishes and did not check on the table often enough to be reminded that we were missing anything. I even went looking for them at one point and there was no one to be found. Yes, this was on a slow night but I believe that no matter the night your service should always be on point.

I've been here several times for dinner, but this was a first for brunch with a large group, and it was amazing! There were 7 of us, and we never needed for anything! They knew it was my sons birthday, and they went above and beyond! We also had the nicest servers ever!

I live nearby but had forgotten we had this gem around. Decided to treat my boyfriend to this place Bc he’s never been. He enjoyed it greatly. The only thing I say is for the entree part they should give you some more meat/ pastas than they do, and they don’t have a big beer list. Our server was super great, unfortunately don’t remember her name, short dark hair and spunky. We were there on a date and got stuck next to 7 loud pre teens, only downfall. Overall good place to go and splurge your money

My husband and I decided to go to the Melting Pot for an early dinner although we have not been there in many years. The manager and the server were very attentive and efficient. The food was just as I remember. The cheese fondue was excellent, as was the variety plate of seafood, chicken, and steak.
Overall a very pleasant dining experience.

Booth was drafty, waiter appeared very enthusiastic but proved inattentive. Delivered only 6 roses when I ordered 12, they charged for 12 so I complained and the manager adjusted the bill and produced the missing roses.
