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.

Our experience was awesome . Our server was John and he made our experience fun and enjoyable. John was most helpful in making our selections.
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.

The restaurant was cold, overpriced and very slow. The waitress was scripted and could not answer questions about the experience. The six dollar salad was very small. The amount of food was not worth the high price. The cheese was ok, the chocolate was good. The table next to us sat dirty the entire time we were at the restaurant. I was disappointed.

Food was poor quality. Service was rough but they were kind and friendly. I would be willing to pay Applebee’s prices for the food served. The hype built up around this restaurant far exceeds what it should. Very disappointed.

This was my second time here. I went on Valentine’s Day weekend and they had a preset menu and it was priced at $70 a person. I was a little hesitant with the price being so high, but everything was great. The waiter was so consistent and the food portions were more than enough. I was stuffed!

We have been going the the melting pot for over 10 years. The food at the Wilmington melting pot has went down hill. We went in for Valentine’s Day/our Anniversary. They had a preset menu that didn’t even have 1/2 of what you could normally get for less. My filet steak tasted like bacon or ham. Both of which I hate. I told the waitress and she said she would look into it. We never heard back from her about that again. About 15 minutes later the manager came over and asked how everything was, and we told him about the steak. He answer was “it’s probably the seasoning”. Well I think if steak is going to taste like bacon then it should have been put on the menu. That was it. No I’m sorry, or anything else. I was disappointed with the quality with all the meat. It’s is NOT what is used to be. Prices go up and quality goes down. For $140.00 before tax, tip and drinks. I think you should not walk away disappointed. Next time Ruth Chris!!

This was a special occasion for us. Nothing was going to ruin it but the server came close. Right at the beginning after getting to our table and going to the restroom there he was frustrated and rolling his eyes. I know this isn’t normal as we frequent this location so I didn’t let it get to me but I was a bit taken back by it.
