"Delicious food and fun activity for groups. Owner stopped by and hooked us up with some freebies - duck, BBQ pork, ahi, and ravioli. Really nice hospitality touch."

"Let me start with each tiny drink we had was the minimum of 10$. The waiter/ manager kept coming to our table and talking for ever. This is our wedding anniversary. We had more time with that guy then ourselves alone. His comments were a little out of line for being the waiter. Way too expensive for the little amount of meat we had to cook ourselves. Not my cup of tea at all. Only good thing was the chocolate foundue"

"We booked dinner for my daughter's 18th bday. It's her favorite place. There was a little mix up at check in, but once seated it was great. Brian, our server was also great. He was soft spoken but very knowledgeable. I totally recommend it for a special occassion"

"We did not know what to expect from this fondue based dining. But what we found was more of an "experience". What we were not aware of was that the "experience" would last for 3 hours. We chose to go for the four course offering and we were glad that we did. In most restaurants the object is to get you in and out as quickly as possible. But at the Melting Pot we were not rushed and we were encouraged to sit and enjoy good conversation with our dining companions and enjoy the meal. I truly felt like the experience was more of connecting with people with a good meal. The food was definitely fresh, we cooked it ourselves and certainly filling, but not stuffed. Our waiter was knowledgeable and accommodating. Thanks for the most enjoyable evening! It was delightful and very different."

"We went for a birthday celebration and all 4 of us ordered different items. I could not pick a favorite, as everything was delicious. We chose the classic Alpine cheese course, and the seasoned court bouillon for cooking our entrees. I had the surf and turf, both the lobster and filet mignon were excellent. I tried the duck someone else had ordered and it was excellent also. The flaming turtle chocolate fondue for dessert was so good! The server brought us all shots on the house for the birthday celebration! All in all, a very enjoyable dining experience."

"My only complaint is the staff. Our waiter (Junior) talked too much and it got annoying. He also forgot a couple of items. He did comp one meal as the person arrived after cheese and salad courses, but he made a big deal out of not adding the 18% for 6 people so I'd have the chance to add what I thought was appropriate. I don't like that. Add the 18% if you do a great job you'll get a bigger tip in cash. We left about 25%, but I don't need that pointed out to me. The manager also came over and was over-jovial and talked too much about nothing. Again, people want to eat and talk with their party and being constantly interrupted with service chatter is annoying. It's almost over-friendly. I notice this happens in a mid-level restaurant sometimes. Leave the guests alone so they can party. But honestly, overall it was a fun night and he was attentive to the birthday girl."

"My waitress was the most upbeat, funny, and down to earth woman! She made me feel so comfortable and appreciated! The kitchen manager even came out to meet me and my boyfriend while we were having dinner. I'm definitely going back to this place! The food was delicious and the drinks!"

"Nice location with great night time parking (free and under the building). A bit pricy for the food but very reasonable wine prices. Our four course meal for two with wine was $200 with tip!
Disappointing that the cheese fondue did not contain Kirshwasser, otherwise very traditional. Limited selection of dipping sauces.
Staff was very nice and accommodating but seemed inexperienced."
