This was the second not so great experience I’ve had here. The first time, I guess our waiter had an outside emergency and had to leave. We sat for 45 minutes. He had let someone know, but they never relayed the message. The second time, I think the girl must have been new. She kept forgetting items she needed for the pot and she made a mistake when checking is out. If I had not accidentally left my card there, I wouldn’t have known. She should have told me when she put the card back on the table. I do love the food, so I know I’ll be back. But I’m def not going to keep my mouth shut if the service is trash again. It’s a little ridiculous considering the amount I pay for the food.

I love being able to take my wife to The Melting Pot for our date nights (which very rarely happen). This place is always so nice to go to. However, the one gripe i had was we were placed in a very open area (every time ive been its been kind of secluded) and there were kids all around us as well as kids were seated next to us. This kind of put a damper on the night as our entire date night was to get away from the kids. Service and food was very good!

I made a reservation for Saturday, June 22nd for my little sister's 21st birthday and our experience was outstanding. Madeline from the host desk called to confirm our reservation and was happy to take any special requests. Our waitress, Thea, was FANTASTIC, she was friendly, attentive and went above and beyond to ensure we had a great time. They even made my sister a special plate for her birthday with a candle in it for dessert. The manager also personally stopped by to wish my sister a happy birthday and bought her a drink. It was a wonderful outing and I really appreciate everything that the Melting Pot team did to make our celebration special!

The food was amazing as well as the restaurant in general. My family had a great experience. The only downside was the price. For a family of four my bill was over $200. That is way too much to pay for dinner. I will admit the quality of the food was outstanding but i would not come back and pay that price again. It is too much for the average person to pay that much for a meal.

The staff were great, the room perfect for our party! The food was great also. Our cheese fondues were wonderful

Only complaint was so much less veggies served with the fondue and the dessert portion was tiny compared to the cheese, and left us wanting fir mote!

Never been here before so it was a new dining experience for us! It was a lot of fun! The choices were great, and we tried the new grilling style which was cool but it did make cooking longer but not a problem we were having fun!
That being in said our waitress was not really up to par. She was gone an awfully long time between each order the drinks and water took forever and then the bill took 20 minutes because they had to remove a drink that should not have even been on there! The manager had to clear the table after the entree’ after we asked the burning pan be removed due to the smoke!
So despite that being said we still had a great time and will be back to try the other types of cooking! The Nashville rubbed pork was my favorite and my husband said all of it was his favorite! The s’mores dessert was over the moon!

The service was very slow. We was there for over 2 1/2 hours. The manager had to clean the table once. My husband ‘s main course had a fly on top. Manger did bring him a new meat plate, but Didn’t offer an apology. We had to ask for bill and waited another 15 mins. We do one the melting pot, hopefully this was just a once bad time.

We deeply enjoyed our visit to The Melting Pot in Wilmington. We had reservations and were seated immediately. The staff was so wonderful and helpful if we had any questions at all. Though, I do have one comment about the Cajon Filet Mignon... absolutely way too much seasoning. I tried one bite and that's all I could handle. I think it had more of a coating of seasoning than it had meat. Both my husband, friend, AND the people in the booth next to us who overheard us kindly telling the waitress, agreed. That was the most expensive item I had and wish they had offered me something else instead. Other than that, it was fantastic! I would definitely recommend going here and will be back very soon.

4th time coming to this location, over a span of 2years. It in on the pricy side, but well worth it. Every server we’ve ever had wait on us was exceptional. Kind, professional, personable staff. The ambiance, atmosphere and overall general feel of the place is top notch. Always our number one restaurant for special occasions. Only thing I could of changing would be the portion size of the dessert fondues. Bananas foster is our favorite, but if we order an extra plate (this time was the caramel cheesecake, cream puffs and Oreo marshmallows), we run out of the chocolate fondue half way through our plates.
