Ordered the 4 course for 2 and it was excellent. The yin and yang dessert option was great as well. Drinks from the bar were mixed to perfection and the hostess and the wait staff were very nice and professional. 5 stars from us!

We’ve been here a few times and this last time was by far the worst experience we had. We had to wait almost 20 minutes to place our drink orders while new tables that were seated after us place both drink and dinner orders. When it came to getting the main and dessert courses we had to wait an excessive amount of time for each. Three tables that were seated after us had managed to eat three courses, and pay before we got our dessert.

Menu is set up for party of 2. We had 3 and ordering was complicated. Food was outstanding raising a 4+ to a 5 star rating. For a romantic evening this is a must do restaurant

We eat at the Melting Pot a couple times a year. While we were waited on quickly, it took 50 minutes for our first course to arrive. The whole evening, with 8 people, was 3 hours long. It just took too long. I’m sure we’ll go back, but maybe not on a Saturday.

Had a great date night. The servers were easy to make conversation with and the food was great. A little pricey but worth the experience every now and again.

My boys wanted to go to melting pot before movies. The Neal was good and fun. But they kept asking if it was a special occasion and I was puzzled by this until the bill came. I pretty high price tag for just a a family meal before the movies. So not sure about value but it was fun and service was great. Thank you

OMG, our sever was a riot!!! She shared some of her “adventures “ with the different customers she had had. She was a great help in our final decision on which chocolate to have for dessert.

Service was not that good. Picked up food before others finished eating. Waitress did not check in with us for long periods of time. The only time she did made us feel rushed to get on with it. Love martini was really good. Food was fine but not anything special to write about. This was our first and last time as we did not find it worth the price.

Great for a once in a lifetime experience but not worth it price wise though. You can go to Walmart and buy the food for just as much if not less.

TMP was beyond our expectation! We had never been to a fondue restaurant before, Madeline and Steve (trainee) explained everything to us perfectly! I’ve already recommended several groups I’m in to check out TMP of Wilmington or any TMP they may be near in the future!

Incredibly slow service - I think they were short staffed. Our server just did not have good time management. I asked for a Bloody Mary and it took 20 - 25 minutes with 2 reminders- it was watered down. If any of us requested extras we became accustomed to waiting a long time to the point of wondering if they would ever come. This is already a place that requires a time commitment and it probably took 50 minutes more than normal.

Excellent service as always. Had a repeat server, sadly I forget her name, but she was training a new guy as well. They were both extremely friendly and helpful. Even if the food were not excellent, the staff would still keep us coming back for more. Wonderful every time. Thank you so much. :)

It was a rough start, not ready when the reservation time came, but they more than made up for it. The food was great, the service was wonderful. I'm so glad they survived the pandemic and are still one of the best places to eat in Wilmington
