The Melting Pot is one of our special night out restaurants and Mother’s Day out after coronavirus lockdown was doubly special. Great food, excellent service, lots of fun!

It was a treat to spend Mother’s Day with my family at the Melting Pot! The food was outstanding and the enjoyably non-rushed two hours was super fun! Our waiter, Keith, was exceptional! The food was perfectly prepared, and delivered in well-choreographed intervals. Everyone but myself was new to fondue and Keith was patient and knowledgeable. Well done!

Our server, Keith, was an absolute gentleman and was extremely helpful in answering all our questions. Ambience was great and the food from the 4-course dinner for two filled us up more than we initially thought it would. Though a little pricey for what you get, the mood was great and the booths are comfy. Would definitely come back for another special occasion.

The waitress was very slow. We were at the restaurant for nearly two and a half hours most of that time waiting for our food. The meal was not worth the very high price we paid for it.
We originally made a reservation for December to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary and the restaurant cancelled on us. we then rebooked for Valentines Day to make up for the dinner in December. We were very excited for nearly two months for the opportunity to dine there and was extremely disappointed.

Food is fantastic every time we have been there. Our server was spread way too thin amongst tables in different parts of the restaurant. So at times we had a long wait for simple things. For example, I had ordered a glass of unsweetened iced tea. When my server came to the table with our food, she told me the iced tea was at the bar and she'd be right back with it. Ten minutes later my iced tea finally arrived. Little things like this (and there were a few of them) takes away from what would otherwise be a great experience.

Me and my fiancé went for my birthday and it was the best experience! We had our own private booth which made us feel like we had the place to ourselves! Our waitress was very nice and answered all the questions we had because it was our first time at the melting pot. I would deff recommend the Melting Pot

Our server, Keith, was OUTSTANDING. We will be requesting him every time we return. Everything was great as always, but a bit disappointed in the tiny bit of chocolate fondue sauce they give you to take home. We got the four courses and paid 180. And there was MAYBE a quarter of the chocolate sauce you would get if you had it there. Otherwise, absolutely great.

The service was ok with a bit of lack on checking on us. I needed a refil which i never got. The big night package was horrible for the price. The entres came with a few pieces of potatoes and a few slices of zucchini. I'm paying over 100 $ for meal for 2 the least you can do is add some more sides or even veggies. I do not like that there were no prepared or pre-cooked items everything had to be prepared by us... which got burned in the oil. So we did not enjoy our meal. Then on the way out, we overheard the waitress complaining about her 10% tip. That was the icing that made us completely unsatisfied with our experience at the establishment. There are thousands of choices for dining today. We will not be returning customers.

Really really good food. And fun. One of my favorite restaurants of all time. But super expensive. That's why I unfortunately choose to only go for special occasions like once a year. Wish I could go more often.

I have been to The Melting Pot before but it had been a long time since my last visit. The food was just as delicious as I remembered it. We ordered the create your own four-course meal. We loved the cheese and chocolate fondues, as well as the salad and the entrees. It was a calm, relaxing atmosphere. The Love Martini is a favorite. I’ll definitely be back!

It’s a concept but not for everyone. It takes a lot of concentration and effort to make your own dinner. If you’re drinking wine things get lost in the pot and you forget timing and frankly I’m surprised more people don’t get sick from eating raw food as a result. Our waiter tried but he was very inexperienced and not that attentive. We did it mostly to show an out of town guest the concept of fondue. I think it’s expensive for what it is. The best part of the evening was Michael ,the magician, who was warm, funny and fascinating. Loved him
