Always delicious and fun. Be sure to leave about two hours for your reservation because it does take some time!

Great food! Food was spaced out nicely between apps, salad, entré, and dessert and our server was very sweet and gave great pairing suggestions. Great for anniversaries and other special occasions. Great place to treat yourself!

Great place to be interactive with your food. My kids and I love it here. We went for Mothers Day. The cooking of the food and waiting they definitely enjoy doing and it keeps them off their phones!!

I am a regular at this restaurant, and usually, I enjoy great food and great service. This time, the hostess was slow to seat my party of two. Our reservation was at 6:15 and we were seated at around 6:40. Usually the wait staff is energetic, friendly, and interactive, but this time, we never got checked up on. The service was slower than usual and it was not the traditional fun Melting Pot service. The food was great as always, but the subpar service did not create a fun atmosphere for a birthday.

We went at 2 PM on Saturday before Mother's Day, and the restaurant was a bit empty (probably due to the time). Our waiter was very nice and courteous and provided exceptional service!!!! Great choice for special occasions!

We made our reservation online which was great! The day of our reservation we got a confirmation phone call and they asked what we were celebrating. It was a birthday. When we got there the birthday boys name was written on a tv slideshow which was awesome! The food was great as always and we had a great time!

I dined at the Melting Pot (Westwood) on Friday May 4th for a friend’s birthday. Our dining experience was rather interesting when a centipede or insect of some sort fell through the light fixture and landed on our table. My friend and I were both frightened and asked to move our table as soon as possible. In the many years I have dined here, I have never experienced anything like that before. The manager on duty did comp our drinks and we were able to enjoy the rest of our meal

I've been here twice - First with friends, second with a date - The food, the experience, and the service were all excellent. When you go to a restaurant and before you know it, it's almost 3 hours later, you know it was a great time. The price is a bit high, but well, well worth it. I would recommend this place for a special occasion.

We have been wanting to try this place for a while now. Unfortunately we were very disappointed. The cheese fondue was very, very watery, it just was not good. The meat did not taste good, didn’t like the seasoning or the cooking base at all. It was extremely pricey. We didn’t even stay for dessert. We will not be going back.

Tried this out of the blue - had no idea what to expect. Lovely, zen-like ambiance, server was knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. Cocktails were spectacular for the eyes as well as the palate. Food was very good - novel approach. Definitely an experience! I would recommend highly, and will absolutely be back.

There are gluten free options, low-cal. (Neither of which did we utilize.)

The experience was simply perfect from the moment we walked it. Our waiter was amazing and went above and beyond to make sure everything was going well. We choose to go the chocolate route and it was an exceptional experience. Their chocolate covered strawberries were to die for. It was a long drive for us but worth it. I would definitely come back again.

Food was delicious... just everything took a long time. Took 20 mins to get the check. In the end left cash as got fed up of waiting. It wasn’t that busy either. Other than that was good.

This is my second time at Melting Pot and even though this was not a special occassion, I felt special. Every staff member is just so polite, welcoming, and easy to talk to. I love the fondue vibe and the dessert was amazing! Fun experience cooking your own food. Can't wait to come back

Lots of fun for a special occasion and for girls’ get-together. Takes a long time for the four course dinner, allowing lots of good talking time. Very expensive - not a great value but worth it for an occasional fun dinner.

It is more for something different and out of the ordinary. The food is good but nothing special as its all about how you cook it yourself at your table. It is worth a try for the experience, I promise.
