    Our waitress was way to pushy in getting us in and out. Between being taken to our table and paying our check, it was 1 hour. The waitress even had our total check ready for us to pay as soon as we finished our meal and before we discussed desserts. The waitress also checked in on us way too often even though we said we were fine 5 min into eating our food.

    My husband and I went for our 16th wedding anniversary. We’ve been to several Melting Pots on the east Coast. This by far had the best waitress, Sammy. She gave recommendations, was attentive and energetic. 10/10 for our experience!

    Server was very negative. Talked about how he had a horrible day, didn’t like the food at the melting pot and only got a job there because the “money was good”. Requested rose petals on the table and there were none. There was a vase with flowers they tried to charge me $20 for that I had to request off. When I requested off, our rude server tried to tell me I asked for it and tried to fight me on taking it off the bill. The serving sizes for the cheese and chocolate was incredibly low. Server also would pre-bus the table while we were still eating. Even took out pot away while we still had meat cooking in it. Very upsetting and was an awful experience for our first date.

    This was our first time visiting The Melting Pot and since it was our 48th Anniversary I was expecting a lot and they didn't disappoint. In fact, they started to impress before we arrived, they called in the afternoon to ask if I wanted flowers or Champagne. (They don't open until 5Pm) I have never had a restaurant, that I made reservations at, do that. The seating is unique in that there are no tables only booths. The booths provide both noise reduction and privacy. Each table has a built-in hot plate in the center of the table where the Fondue Pots are heated. Depending on the item, cooking times varied from 1 to 5 minutes. After being seated our server, Lillian J, was at our table almost immediately. Since this was our first visit, she spent a considerable amount of time explaining or options and the whole process, which we greatly appreciated. My wife ordered a Freshly-Picked Margarita - Avion Silver Tequila, Solerno Blood Orange, Cointreau, Agave Nectar Lime, Lemon, Orange and Grapefruit Juices and I ordered a Melting Pot Mule - Absolut Vodka, Domaine De Canton Ginger Liqueur, Fresh Mint, Lime, Ginger Beer. We both agreed that the drinks were average at best. We had their Four-Course Dinner for Two. The first course being a Cheddar Cheese Fondue. We chose the Wisconsin Cheddar Fondue: Aged Cheddar, Emmenthaler, Sam Adams Boston Lager, Garlic Spices with artisan breads, fruit and veggies for dipping. So much that you could have made a meal out of this course alone. It was so delicious. The second course was a Caesar Salad. Their Caesar Dressing was very unique, it tasted nothing like any other Caesar Dressing that I have ever had. It was sweeter, but very good. The entrée was their Bigger Night Out for Two which consisted of Lobster Tail, Premium Filet Mignon, Teriyaki-Marinated Steak, Herb Crusted Chicken Breast", Shrimp, Atlantic Salmon, Wild Mushroom Pasta GF with Coq Au Vin Fondue. Desert was the Flaming Turtle. We will definitely be going back.
