    We were seated quickly on our date and received excellent service. Everything was wonderful. We had the spinach and artichoke dip to start, the melting pot house salad and California salad, the classic entree and the land and sea entree using the deep fry cooking style, and the flaming turtle for desert. Enjoyed every moment. Thank you :)

    Appetizers, salad and dessert were amazing, but I would not go for dinner. Cooking yourself is OK, but the filet mignon was not very tender and it was hard to organize all the cooking. Lastly, it was WAY too expensive for what we got.

    Overall our experience was fantastic. The server did an amazing job and was very attentive. I just had a few issues. The menu needs a better variety for people who don't like seafood. I stated this on a prior review also. There was a large party of moms and girls that were extremely loud and kept getting up, moving around and even dancing. Having tables with cooktops and hot food this doesn't mix very well and made me very nervous. Plus they were seated in the middle of the dining room. My millionaires coffee was basically cold and tasted horrible. Someone at another table had the flat iron skillet and there isn't alot of ventilation for the smoke. Again I would like to say our sever was amazing and the food was really good too. The hostess were kind and helpful and we were seated fast.

    A bit expensive especially when no need to pay a chef. Service was pretty good, but a couple of extended absences, though it was very late so I’m sure they were exhausted. Very friendly and willing to accommodate. Food was excellent. Pleasant and unique experience as usual.

    First time at melting pot, loved it! Everything was very good and I don’t regret the 3 courses. Definitely don’t regret the add on fancier dessert plate!! Next time I go back will probably just do the cheese portion and dessert portion bc those were my favorites and plenty to fill up on

    It's was a nice place. It is good for a date night. I don't know how often I would go here. The only thing I didn't like is we had to cook everything ourselves. First course was great I love the fondue and the cheese and all the stuff to dip in it. Salad was great. It's not that the main course was bad I just personally would have liked them to have made something and brought it out. And then of course the chocolate was amazing. I don't know I just for me when I pay a certain amount of money and then I have to tip I don't want it to be because I did it all what am I tipping for because you brought me the stuff yes I did I still tip 20% but I don't feel like I should when it's set up like that. But that's just my personal opinion

    A friend and I went in for the restaurant week promo. Our server was busy but attentive. The food was delicious. The French toast, sweet fondue was amazing. I wish you offered it more often than just restaurant week. Also, your drinks after dinner drinks were amazing as well. All in all a good experience.

    Me and my boyfriends favorite Thursdate special, always such a fun vibe in the room, sucked a little because there wasn’t really any sort of “apology” from the fire alarm that was going off for probably half our dinner experience which was a little upsetting but it’s always going to be a winning restaurant for us.

    Food and service are both excellent. My only "but" is that we were 6 and they initially accommodated us in a small booth. Most of the tables are suitable for 4 people only. They moved us to a bigger table (really appreciated!), but we were lucky. Otherwise, it would have been an unpleasant experience, despite the good food and excellent service.

    App course and dessert course are the best. Main course was good but we had 6 people and that may have been too many for the table layout we had. I would recommend but recommend for small party of 2 to 4 at most.

    Fun concept, but way too much food. Noise levels and a lack of sound absorption made it impossible to have a conversation. But most things were tasty, although the main course fondues were over salted

    Went for NYE and our server was barely at our table, took forever to get our table to get cleared for the next meal and we ended up leaving before we even got our dessert. It was just so unorganized. I understand it was a holiday but for how much money we spent, we expected better service.

    Very good food but very poor service not worth the price. After forgetting a handful of things and apologizing (no big deal), the forgetfulness continued but the apologies did not. We were almost charged for one of the forgotten items. Was hard to keep track of all the forgotten things ourselves, almost needed to start writing it down. Which is silly since NYE is a set, limited menu. Shouldn’t be that difficult. We were there for 2.5 hours despite being seated prior to our reservation time in the late afternoon. We were supposed to be given a NYE gift bag but unsurprisingly that was forgotten as well. Great food but I expect better service for $90/person not including the 18% auto gratuity and tax. Will probably return to melting pot but never again for a special event like NYE. >$200 for a 2 person meal needs to be way better service, even when its fondue/cook your own meal. And one of the worst parts, having to confirm the tip for your $200 meal using a handheld card machine while the server stands over you watching. Yuck.
