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!!

We had a wonderful experience from beginning to end! The server was very helpful and patient ( our first visit to the restaurant) so explanation / guidance was very important. We had a party of 5 celebrating our daughters 16 th birthday; we wanted to give her a memorable occasion-mission accomplished!!! could not have asked for any better.

Enjoyed dinner and introducing our girls to fondue! We were there on a Friday evening and I could tell that our server was overwhelmed. She was very nice and provided great service, but it took a very long time for our entree to come out.

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.

We had a great time on Friday at the Wilmington location. The food was so fresh and the quality was not lacking either. We had the Quattro formaggio and loaded baked potato fondue to start. DELISH! Then we chose 4 options each, so we shared 8 items. We chose the ahi tuna (2 servings), salmon, shrimp, teriyaki serloin, filet, Cajun chicken and pork. I think I’d get the ahi tuna, salmon and teriyaki sirloin EVERYTIME. It’s so fun to cook items in the broth and then add your favorite sauces. The gorgenzola and green goddess were my favorite and delicious with the mushrooms and potatoes. Teriyaki was also great on the salmon and tuna. I hope they bring back the red velvet and cheesecake bites for dessert soon, but we were not disappointed in the dessert selection either. Loved the rice crispie treats, strawberries and blonde brownies with the turtle and Oreo chocolate fondue. Strawberries were fresh and sweet! The service was wonderful and were always checking in to see if we needed a drink refill, etc. We will be back!

After checking in for our reservation we were seated at a table in the far back by the bar. It was a little distracting because I could see the kitchen door opening and staff going in and out (I’ve only sat on the other side of the restaurant before today). Our server was great. Possibly the best I have had there. She said if we run out of dippers she’d bring more and even gave me extra sauces (the ones I use a lot of). The manager came by to make sure we were enjoying our meals. The cheese is amazing (Wisconsin cheddar), the salad was good, and the meat was mostly good (I had a few fatty pieces). The meat seemed to take a lot longer to cook than usual but we tried a new cooking broth (mojo). The desert was fabulous - we had the s’mores fondue. It was my birthday so we got a coupon to go back ($10 off). Overall a fun night and we left stuffed. I think I prefer sitting on the other side of the restaurant. We did have reservations but a small party of 3 so perhaps that’s why we were placed in the back bar area. We go here a lot before movies so I will know to request to sit on the other side next time.

Made a reservation online and had no wait for our table. Friendly service, Jenny was very knowledgeable and had a great personality. The cheese fondue was outstanding, she offered to bring extra dippers since there were 3 of us. We each had a salad which was of ample size and then finished with a chocolate and marshmallow fondue. Total was right st $100. Guess we need to go for the cheese and chocolate special next time. Monday-Thursday 5-8 pm for $14 each.

What a wonderful time we had as our waiter Zac did a great job! The service was the absolute best. We were celebrating a birthday and it couldn’t have been any better. It was the best dining experience we have had in several years. Great food, great service, really nice location and they all went out of their way to make it a special night.

Thank you Mealting Pot Team for a most memorable evening!
