Waitress did not comply with our request to not be rushed. She said to let her know when we were ready to order, but yet she kept coming back to see if we were ready. Each course came out before we were finished with the previous one ....we were very rushed and the restaurant wasn't that busy !

The food is of very good quality, the beverages are efficient and the service is very friendly. Your first time will be a crash course in fondue, and wished I had a cheat sheet for the entrees; although the server was always readily available for a consult or reiteration. Smaller groups for less distraction would make for an easier first time experience.

I originally was going to come with my oldest for the kids eat free event, but it turned into a friends gathering with their kids too. It was all of our first time bringing the kids. Our server wasn't patient or understanding of our children and our needs as guests. We had wuestions about the menu and how things worked. 1 burner on our table wasn't working so 6 of us were using 1 pot to cook our entrees in. It was horrible. To top things off, after writing specifics amounts to be charged on 2 different credit cards and cash, he managed to charge the same credit card twice! It was the worst experience.

I’ve been several times, but this time stood out. Our server was excellent and so was the food. The only negative I have is the price. Seems like a bit steep to pay for cooking your own food. Very fun though. Plan to be there at least two hours as it is a dinner that takes a while.

We love, love, LOVE the Melting Pot in Westwood for all of our special occasions or anytime we want to celebrate life. We are never disappointed!! The meal always leaves us satisfied and happy. The atmosphere is very inviting but also provides privacy to enjoy your meal. We drive miles out of our way to go to this particular location. I particularly like the fact that they participate in fundraising for charities, for example the St Jude's promotions where they give you an incentive to donate for the cause. They also do many themed events like girls night out etc that always give you a reason to come back and enjoy.
Highly recommend!!

We were a group of three, including a vegetarian, and the staff was most accommodating. They spent a huge amount of time going over the menu options, and verified numerous items to ensure that they were "vegetarian friendly." The food was delicious, and abundant. We were old friends getting together, and did not feel rushed at all - just the opposite - we were there much longer than we expected. (I'm not saying the service was slow; I'm saying they respected our desire to not be rushed.) I have gone before with my family for special occasions, and we've always enjoyed the experience. This visit, with friends, convinced my friends that this was a place to enjoy!

Overall a great experience. We had Steve as a server and he was very accomodating. We had several people with food allergies and he was able to juggle all of it. Only complaint, which is every time we go to melting pot is that it just takes a very long time for the meal between cleaning up between courses and setting up the new pots always takes time.

It was absolutely freezing. I had to wear my jacket the entire time. Our waiter was... enthusiastic, to say the least. Always interjecting into our personal conversations offering his opinion. He is a great waiter, but is young and must be directed not to do so for it is inappropriate.

Overall the food was delicious and ambiance would have received an all-star review if it wasn’t for the frigid temperature and awkward service.

Excellent food and service! We go to the Melting Pot at least a couple of times per year. The food never disappoints and the service is top notch. The only thing is that it is quite dark in there. And it gets noisy too.
