The restaurant was good overall. Our secluded curtain booth could have been in a better location. Right outside the kitchen doors. Heard the doors constantly opening and closing. Luckily the curtains blocked having to watch them. Our server, Tanner, was excellent. Not one issue. Food was good, dessert was good, but the bill was out rageous! Almost 200 bucks for 2 people? Way to high in costs to go more than once a year! Overall, was nice, a good experience.

We celebrated a friend's birthday and she had never been. The food was good but I don't think she was as blown away as I had hoped she would be. I enjoyed it and am looking forward to my birthday celebration at the melting pot.

So disappointed in the entire experience. Would never recommend Melting Pot. In fact, we were so disappointed (and $240 less money in our pockets) that I will also be putting my review on Yelp. Not only will I not recommend the Melting Pot, I will be telling my friends to not waste their money. We were disappointed that as a group we had to decide what ONE cheese to share, the same goes for the entree fondue, and the chocolate. The meat was okay, but nothing to write home about. The place was empty, and they seat another party DIRECTLY behind us. We heard their entire conversation. We did have good salads. Our server was good. I'm just so angry that we not only had a bad experience, but it cost us $240 for four people (that included a 20% tip).

The atmosphere was great, the service was great. I'm leaving a low score because the food was very bland and the portions were very small. I don't think good service and atmosphere were worth the $135 bill if the food isn't good. The food left much to be desired. I would not recommend this restaurant to anybody.

I don't like the fact I had to cook my own food. I didn't like the flavor of my broth. We only had one pot and it took awhile to cook everything we ordered. This place is too expensive for me to have to cook my own food.

First time at this location -- love the location! My first experience was at a location in Scottsdale. I am thrilled to have one closer. We were welcomed immediately and directed to a table.
Our visit was to connect with old friends. The table we were placed in was perfect. We were totally unaware of anyone else in the entire restaurant other than ourselves; which afforded us the time to really visit and enjoy the style of eating at the same time.
Our waiter, Zach, was wonderful. He exhibited a great work attitude and it was clear he enjoyed his job. We were served quickly and left appropriately alone at the same time so we could enjoy each serving of our dinner - from the appetizers to the desserts.
I will definitely come back and highly recommend this location.

Everything was great,, food, waiter, ambiance. My only complaints was the music... It was too loud and it should have been more romantic music... But really just too loud. Everything else was amazing, it was a perfect evening!

What a great place, the food was great, anything that was overcooked was my fault but I made sure everything was cooked to perfection or else I'd have to give me a one star rating. Our waitress was more than excellent, Angie was an angle. She took such great care of us that I was starting to think we were her only customers and that was far from the case. For a fun time with friends or a romantic date night this is the place to go.

My husband, a friend and I went to Melting Pot in Arrowhead to celebrate my birthday. I am gluten intolerant, and my friend is Jewish, so does not eat pork or shellfish. My husband has no dietary restrictions. When I made the reservation, I requested a 2-cooktop table, so we could keep one pot gluten free, and one pot pork and shellfish free. (This way, my husband and I could also get the spinach artichoke cheese fondue, as my friend doesn't care for spinach artichoke)
Melting Pot Arrowhead was wonderful with the request. We did make an early reservation, so it wouldn't be during peak hours, and they accommodated us beautifully. My friend and I both had to make substitutions on our entree platters, but they offer so many choices, we didn't feel we were missing anything. I got to have my gluten free and enjoy pork and shrimp, and she got to have her pork and shrimp free, and enjoy the regular bread, herbed chicken, teriyaki sirloin, and poundcake and brownies. My husband got to move between the two cooktops and enjoy everything.
The only small flaw in the night was that they were out of the gluten free poundcake and brownies for the chocolate fondue. Our wonderful waiter (seriously, he was terrific, on the ball, never letting us down) said that the GF dippers had been backordered for several months. That's more on their supplier than on the restaurant.
We really appreciated how well they accommodated our requests, and we'll definitely be back again.

The food was really great. I would not recommend this type of dining for children or large groups. I really enjoyed the experience only issue I had is that they had a few items that were unavailable that I was interested in.

Nothing but good things to say. The food is always so good there. The place is never that loud. Just make sure that you have and not want to rush your evening because we were there for almost 2 hours. But it was all good.

Meeting reservation was easy and staff confirmed reservation by phone day of. Devin and Nick helped pull off the prefect surprise for my fiance, future father in law and I. Sarah, our server, executed a fabulous presentation of menu options. The presentation the food was on point as well, compliments the chef .

Always love the Melting Pot. This was a celebration for my graduation from GCU. First time taking my parents. They loved the food and the ambiance. This is definitely a new favorite for them. Thanks for the great service!

We had been to the Melting Pot years ago and had loved it, so my husband took me for my birthday and we were both so disappointed in the quality of the meal and it remains so expensive. I will not ask to ever go back there again. We should have known by just walking in. It use to be so hard to get a table and it seemed half empty on a Friday night when we were there.

It took almost an hour for us to get our first course. Server was not very attentive. We spent a lot of money that night as it was our anniversary and the service was well below expectation. Very disappointed as this was our first and possibly last visit.
