Service could have been more attentive especially initially and at check time but very friendly

The service left something to be desired as it took a while to take our drink and food orders, and one of the drink orders came back wrong. The food was on point and did not disappoint, and the addition of Peeps for Easter was a welcome addition. Overall though, we didn’t think the Easter food selection was better than the normal menu options.

This time - it was great when it started. However, it took 20 minutes for the server to come and take our order. The host took our drink order which helped but we definitely had time to surf the internet waiting. Overall - good meal; but would have appreciate a faster start.

I would say it’s maybe just a little more expensive than it seems worth. We spent $140 for two and didn’t even have an alcohol. But still a lovely date night out!

I (mom) was very hesitant when Melting Pot got picked as my MIL's choice for her bday dinner. We picked an earlier reservation and hoped for the best. The staff went above and beyond for us and our little one. The staff repeatedly checked on us and we were not treated like we were an inconvenience for having a child. Which has been the case at other restaurants we frequent. Granted for the most part she was well-behaved other than her slightly loud oooo's and ahhhh's over the waiter stiring the cheese and chocolate. I'm sure she was just expressing what others think about the delicious food!

We had a party of 11 and felt it was too much for one server to set up and heat up 3 bowls. We waited 20 minutes for our check and the time in between courses took too long. We were there almost 3 and 1/2 hours.

Tonight there were a few minor issues; we were seated next to a family celebrating there little guy’s birthday. He was excited. But the noise did carry over into our area. We also noticed a horrid smell. It was hard to place: raw sewage, burning tires… they opened the door near us and it did clear up. We will be back because those are minor, and the experience is usually very enjoyable.

The service at this particular restaurant was excellent and very friendly. It was a special occasion dinner and they did a wonderful job making it a memorable experience. We had a terrific time and left feeling satisfied with the quantity and quality of the food. However, expect to spend quite a bit more than you would at your regular neighborhood restaurant (about $100/pp including a drink, tax, and tip).
