Our server was very friendly and attentive to the gluten-free needs of my mom. If she didn't know the answer to our questions, she went and asked someone. Of course the food was wonderful!

This was absolutely the best place ever. The staff was amazing as well as the food. We drove an hour and a half just to eat that this restaurant & it was well worth the drive.

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!

Where to begin... the food and atmosphere were excellent as to be expected at any Melting Pot. Everything outside of that was a disaster. We were sat for 15 mins before we were greeted and for 30 min before waters even hit our table. This should've been a sign to leave but we were excited to be there. Everything was painfully slow. The server kept making excuses as to why but couldn't seem to remedy the situation. This this was the worst fine dining experience I've had in Wilmington. We will not be returning.

The server kept bringing mushroom things to our table by mistake even though they were aware of a severe mushroom allergy at our table. Also, the server was way too pushy on the saint jude donation, to the point it turned us away from donating, since he seemed like he probably gets something for getting a certain amount of donations made.

We love the Melting Pot. It is a bit pricey [ and the business model of getting guests to cook their own food is brilliant ;-) ] but it is well worth it. It is one of our favorite spots.
