As always, the Melting Pot did not disappoint. The server(s) were excellent and the food was great. Our server was most pleasant and made sure we had all we needed for a delightful meal.

We deeply enjoyed our visit to The Melting Pot in Wilmington. We had reservations and were seated immediately. The staff was so wonderful and helpful if we had any questions at all. Though, I do have one comment about the Cajon Filet Mignon... absolutely way too much seasoning. I tried one bite and that's all I could handle. I think it had more of a coating of seasoning than it had meat. Both my husband, friend, AND the people in the booth next to us who overheard us kindly telling the waitress, agreed. That was the most expensive item I had and wish they had offered me something else instead. Other than that, it was fantastic! I would definitely recommend going here and will be back very soon.

Our experience was wonderful except it took a long time before our waitress came to our table. At least 10 minutes after we set down but she was very good after that.

4th time coming to this location, over a span of 2years. It in on the pricy side, but well worth it. Every server we’ve ever had wait on us was exceptional. Kind, professional, personable staff. The ambiance, atmosphere and overall general feel of the place is top notch. Always our number one restaurant for special occasions. Only thing I could of changing would be the portion size of the dessert fondues. Bananas foster is our favorite, but if we order an extra plate (this time was the caramel cheesecake, cream puffs and Oreo marshmallows), we run out of the chocolate fondue half way through our plates.

The overall experience was great. Abby, our waitress was awesome which was a perfect combination with the flavorful food. One thing I would like to mention is the hostess. As we walked in the restaurant, the hostess asked if she "could help us with something" which I found odd. This may just be procedural, but something like "hello, can I get your name and time of reservation" would have been much nicer. The hostess' approach made me feel a bit unwelcome. Luckily, everything else was top notch!

Had anniversary dinner there. Food was great! Table for two was private but a little awkward. Server was very friendly and knowledgeable. Service at beginning of meal was great it got a little slow and not as focused near the end. We were there near close so not sure if that’s what effected service or not. Overall we were very salty and would return.

We go to the Melting Pot about once a month. The location in Mayfaire Towne Centre is fantastic. We have going here since it opened. We have never had a bad experience. We have a food allergy in our family. The wait staff and management are knowledgeable about the ingredients. We will continue to support this location in the future. Highly suggest you try this location, even if you've had a bad experience at another location.

Overall it was a good experience but I think the value is better at the local fondue restaurant. They could provide more fruit and veggie options with the cheese fondue. We had one tiny piece of broccoli, a couple pieces of carrot and a couple pieces of celery. Needed more broccoli and carrots and maybe some potatoes. They had apples but could have also had grapes. They did have plenty of bread. The chocolate fondue dipper options were good. The service was very good.

We live out of town after living in Wilmington 20 years . This wasn’t our first time. We try to make it each time we return to Wilmington as it always is a highlight of favorite places to dine In Wilmington.

Difficult figuring out menu. After ordering the 4 course meal for 49.99 a person our waiter forgot about us after dinner portion was served. Needed to wait 45 min for dessert menu. Dinner ended up last 2 hours and 45 minutes. Food was fresh and good but somewhat annoying that 4 people trying to cook in 2 pots of cooking liquid took allot of time cooking one piece of meat or fish t a time. I prob would not go back unless you were just going to order cheese app or dessert

Food is excellent and we really enjoyed the experience. As far as value, $116 for a meal for two with no adult beverages is an event that will not occur very often. Some additional options with more value could make a visit to The Melting Pot happen more frequently.

Thanks to the other waitstaff the overall experience is at 3 stars. Our waitress would disappear for long periods, and didn't offer to take our drink order until we asked if it we could order drinks. Our other dining experiences with The Melting Pot have been better than five (5) stars and more in keeping with the high standards we have come to expect.

I’ve already submitted a survey about our experience. Our service between courses was too slow. Especially the one between entree and dessert.

The noise level came from a large group that were becoming slight more verbal as they got more intoxicated but other then that it was nice, quite, and peaceful; and with the 4-course there was plenty of food for the price.
