We had not been to the Melting Pot for some time and I’m not sure why. It was definitely better than I remember. The first course was the cheese fondue. It was so good, especially with the Pinot Noir that we selected. Then the classic which included chicken, shrimp and beef with potatoes, mushrooms and onions. Of course, cooked by us in the fondue. It turned out terrific.

We’ll be back again soon as the experience was much better than we remembered.

I was very excited about coming here. It wasn’t what expected. It happened to be restaurant week so it was unexpectedly busy from what the waiter said. The food took a long time especially since it wasn’t cooked. You would have thought it would be quicker. We spent about 2 1/2 hours there. Definitely not on purpose, it just was very slow. The dessert was the best part and the waiter was nice but I think this was a one time situation.

Hello! The dinner typically takes 1.5-2 hours for 2-4 people and 2.5-3 for 5+ so sorry if we missed the mark! It seems counterintuitive, but plating uncooked food takes the same amount of time as cooked food--typical restaurants have workarounds like hot holding popular items so you're often just waiting for food to be finished and plated rather than fully cooked from start to finish. Anyways, just a minor point. I hope you'll give us another shot, you can always come in just for the dessert!

Overall I love the Melting Pot. The atmosphere, the food, the concept of how it is laid out is very unique. I always did think the melting pot was a bit overpriced especially since you pretty much cook your own food. But apart from that restaurant and it has always been one of my favorites. Great for celebrating birthdays, a romantic dinner, or just a girl's night out. It's great for any occasion.

Overall we love eating at the Melting Pot. Having been to this particular location many times, I would have to say this was our best experience and it was mainly due to our server Linda. She was very engaging and personable and just made our night out very enjoyable.
Not sure why but the restaurant was extremely hot that night. Had to take out long sleeve shirts off and were still sweating when we left.
We absolutely love the Melting Pot but $300 for a family of four makes it so we can only enjoy it on special occasions. Wish we could go more often. Next time we will definitely ask for Linda's section.

The noise level was rather loud because we were sitting close to the kitchen area so the whole mean constantly heard "Corner In" or "Corner Out". Regardless of that it was all great.

The Melting Pot is good for something different. The best part was the service of our very attentive waiter. The ambiance needs serious updating. It’s very dark, lots of wood, old decor. But because of the booth design, they were able to keep the social distancing within guidelines. And the place was very busy! I was surprised since fondue is kind of a dated concept. The basic cheese fondue itself was delicious but after a while, you’ve had enough bread and veggies. The chocolate fondue was very good, but again, a whole lot of sweetness with the little bits of cake, marshmallow, and brownies and fruit.

The food was great and our waitress was very helpful and accommodating. We never had to ask for refills of anything--she was on it. She even gave us the idea to mix a few different chocolate options to create something custom that was really good. It was a great night out.

We have been coming to this location for 14 years and by far is the best location. A year ago we had a bad experience and The Melting Pot took our feedback seriously, reached out and mended how we felt as that was the first time we had ever had a bad experience. We came back for Valentine’s Day and our server was fantastic, friendly and knowledgeable! She was quick but never made us feel rushed. The 5 course Valentine’s Day menu had great options however I think the started of bruschetta should have been two pieces per person instead of one, but over all great menu and came with a rose and champagne toast! I would recommend permanently adding the apple cider alpine cheese option to the menu. I noticed this usually gets added for special occasions but is def one of the best cheese options. Overall great experience!

Valentine's day was terrible. Normally melting pot is really on their game. No roses no mention of their famous chocolate covered strawberries. Also our service was horrible. He never checked on our table, barely spoke to us until the end when it was time for the check he stood in front of me until I chose the tip amount on the card machines they are walking around with. I have been coming to MP for 17 years now I am disappointed the last couple times do not think I will be going back for a while.

We purchased the four course meal for two which was a great decision because of the variety of selections. However if your weight attendant isn’t responsive you could end up being there for three hours or more. We ended up waiting after our entrée to move on to the desert for about a half an hour making the meal a lot longer than it could’ve been. Cancel everything else was fine maybe the waitress was just having a bad day

We were celebrating our Anniversary. We were seated in a very small booth it was ok but it was hard to see what you were dipping because of the angle that we were sitting at. I have been here in the past and prefer the more traditional booth. Our server was very friendly and attentive. We ordered drinks and unfortunately they ran out of the mixer needed to make my husbands 2nd drink. He was not given the option to order something else and the 2nd drink was not as good. I ordered a Mai tai and it was only 3/4 full and mostly ice.... at $10 or more a drink I would expect better. Overall it was just an “ok”experience and would not recommend for a special occasion.
