The Melting Pot - Wilmington DE Ratings and Reviews
Repeat customer, food is almost always amazing, fairly new pretzel bites a great addition. Service was far below what we are used to, never received a request or refill of our water for the entire dinner. Waited over 10 minutes for our take home food and specifically asked for some sauce to go home and when I opened the food for my leftover meal, I learned that the sauce was not even provided.
There were 3 of us for dinner and it took 3 hours. Way too long. Our server was pleasant and knowledgeable but absent. Basic mistakes were made. And since they just starting to use a new point of sale system, our bill wasn't accurate. We waited for some time while the Manager tried to figure it out. Eventually, we only paid for the amount that was charged, far less then what it should have been. From that perspective, their customer service was excellent. But I would not want to go back. Not worth the money for the food or service received.
Went here the other night for my boyfriend's birthday. We made a reservation but got there a little early, we were seated immediately. There was a loud party of 14 going on, but we didn't mind, it wasn't too distracting for us. Our waiter, Zach, was possibly the coolest and most attentive waiter we could have had - the big party had him running around a lot but once things died down, he chatted with us a bit and was one of the best customer service experiences either of us has had.
Almost everything on the menu has a gluten free option (grateful celiac, here) including a couple of GF beers. The drinks were good too, I had a peach cosmo that was absolutely delicious. The food options are vast, we didn't know where to start, but we finally ended up getting the four-course option which was stellar. Price point is a bit high, but for a nice occasion, it's a lovely and unique dining experience.
One thing to keep in mind is that you do have to cook your own food at the table - I was unaware of this aspect, and while it wouldn't deter me (it truly was delicious), I just wasn't expecting it.
We enjoyed a date night here the other day after an absence of probably 7 years. Had a fantastic evening and a wonderful meal! Service was very good - she was very attentive without ever being annoying. We both did the surf & turf entree after enjoying the Wisconsin cheddar fondue and the California salad - so delicious and never felt rushed between courses. Will definitely go back again only this time will not wait another 7 years!
The pace of the meal was just right - not too fast not too slow. The food was great and the service was attentive without being intrusive. I was amazed - when we were leaving - to realize that almost 2-1/2 hours had passed and we hadn't noticed. Great place to dine.
We were celebrating team success for exceeding our first half of the year goals. Having dinner in this interactive setting was great for further team building! We always strive to be collaborative in business and that was echoed in the way we participated in our fondue experience. The service was very friendly, informative, and just the right touch of timing. Very nice time was had by all!
We could not have been more happy with how everything went tonight! My boyfriend and I came here to celebrate our one year anniversary and the staff made it so special. Our server, Shannon, was fantastic! She was so friendly, upbeat, and helpful. I've been to 3 different locations and this was by far the best experience I've had thus far. We'll definitely be back to celebrate again soon. Thank you for a wonderful night!
I took my girlfriend here for her birthday and it was fantastic. The service was incredibly attentive, friendly and helpful (thank you Laura). It was both my girlfriend and I first time eating there and we will definitely be going again. I would highly recommend it, I was always one to say that I'm not going to pay to cook my own food but I would happily do just that and eat here again because it was such a wonderful experience.
This was our 2nd time there and I Love It! Preparing our food in front of us & cooking our own food is Fun. The ambience is Fantastic and the tall booths allow privacy for a Romantic Time! (The only thing I didn't like about the seating is the corner booths, you have to get out to allow others out & its a bit claustrophobic) We happened to have the same server on both visits and the first time there she was Phenomenal but during our 2nd visit she was OK, the only reason I say this is because she took Quite a bit of Time in between table visits.
I Definitely Would Recommend The Melting Pot!!!
Can't believe I had to wait til 915pm to book a table on line. Entered restaurant at 9pm could see nothing but empty tables all around....still had to wait.
Food was good. Server good but v long wait for my wine.
Use more tables get more servers!!! Can't make money with empty tables!
We were still eating our cheese and our salads came out. Then we went back to our cheese and our entree came out. I have never had an experience like that. We felt rushed. We asked them to take our meal back until we were done our cheese. It was just really weird. And then our waitress was great in the beginning but when she brought out our chocolate she was telling me how she hated her job and how tiring it was. It was just a weird experience last night just very off putting.
Fabulous dinning experience from the drinks, to the dinner, to the staff. Staff did a wonderful job explaining the menu and options and taking our likes and dislikes and making our dinner very enjoyable. Highly recommend, many options for a great dinning experience.
It is what it is. Food is good, but not fantastic. Its always been pretty pricey in my opinion. I can get a pretty fancy 'fantastic' meal for these prices. If you want to hang our with old friends and chat, its a great venue. If you want really fantastic food, try someplace that actually cooks for you.
