My wife and I received a gift card to The Melting Pot from our son for Christmas. We decided to celebrate a special event coming up in March. We had a very private dining space for 2 that was very intimate and special. The food and service were outstanding. Highly recommend this restaurant (esp. for special occasions).

First time doing fondue. It was good, split an 4 course with my boyfriend. Perfect amount of food for the 2 of us not to over eat. Appetizer was good, salad good, entree good, dessert (oh so good). Next time will most likely just get an appetizer and some dessert.
Price is on the high side, for the 4 course, with broth to cook meat, and a beer came close to $80 including tip.

We had a great time at Melting Pot- Arrowhead. The food was good and plentiful. Everything arrived in a timely manner and was delicious. We probably picked out too much, but everything sounded so great. Our server, Matt, was very personable and entertaining. It was a great night out.

My husband and I went the Sunday before Valentine's Day. They were busy but were able to sit us according to our reservation. They had a few specials which were great. The server we had was fantastic. We look forward to going back again soon!

I was very disappointed at the Melting Pot. I called a week in advance to confirm my reservations and they did not tell me the special price for the Valentine meal. Then they called 4 hours before my reservation the day of our Valentine's Day date which we celebrated on Saturday to tell me that the price was going to be $80 per person. It was too late to find another place and I didn't want to be embarrassed so I went ahead and paid for it. The food was mediocre, the service was terrible, and they didn't tell me that they automatically put a 20% gratuity on the bill . This was just for two people. The service was so bad and that waiter did not deserve a 20% tip. He only asked me for a drink once. I drank water the rest of the time because I was so irritated that he didn't even ask me if I wanted another drink. We only had two skewers for our food because they took two of them on the first meal. When I asked for another one so we could have three he never returned with any. The shrimp tasted like it had sand in it and it was very gritty it made me not want to eat anymore. I was very disappointed and it was definitely not worth the $200 bill. I will never go back there again!

First time here based on a recommendation for a date spot. Definitely worth it for a yearly or bi-yearly trip and for anniversaries,romantic dates,mothers day and/or Valentine's day. Will definitely return to try out different options from the menu with my s.o.

We had a party of 8 adults celebrating a birthday on a Saturday night. They put us at a round corner table that was probably meant for 6 people. Doing fondue with that many people at that table was awkward and not easy. Service was not that good either - drinks from the bar were wrong and took forever, in addition to being really weak - since one drink costs $10, we would expect our money's worth of liquor.
Very disappointing - won't go back to that restaurant. Have been to Scottsdale location and never had any of these same problems.

We had a great time but felt cramped tucked into a corner and the pot being so far away. We didn't let that distract us as we were enjoying our company together and relaxing for the first time in a while. We still plan to return!

We loved the ambiance, it was very nice for date night. Our server was excellent and very attentive. We loved the food, it was very good and fresh. Overall it was a unique experience and we will definitely go again.

It was ok. Had called ahead to arrange for my wife's birthday - was told they would have something for her. There was nothing. Not looking for handouts, just want people to do what they say they are going to do. Felt rushed a bit - with $60 for melted chocolate - would have liked to had a better experience.

The host that greeted us and checked us in could not initially find our reservation. He was quite rude and condescending about whether we had a reservation or not. He eventually found it.
2 full glasses of ice water were spilled on my husband as soon as we were seated. We have both been servers, we understand these things happen. We were unbelievably nice and understanding about the incident. The incident was never communicated to our main waitress. We waited an unbearably long time for our cocktails, new utensils, new napkins, and an appetizer plate. You'd think that after the way the evening started, we would have received extra attention, but the opposite seemed to happen. We were ignored, the service was slow, and we were showed very little, if any, courtesy for the unfortunate beginning to the evening, even though we were so accommodating about the whole thing.
We were celebrating our daughter's 20th birthday. Other than the girl that spilled the water, no one ever mentioned her special day the entire evening. We have celebrated many MANY birthdays at The Melting Pot over the years, and the dessert platter always comes out with a slice of cheesecake with a candle. This was not the case at Arrowhead on 1/27. We were very disappointed with the service and attention we received at this location.

I really liked the Melting Pot. I had never been. The chicken wasn't my favorite but the beef was really good. The desert was TO DIE FOR! LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVED it. If you are going as a couple order only one entree as you will be FULL before desert if you don't. SPLIT IT ALL

It was my anniversary and my boyfriends birthday when we came today and they asked what the occasion was which made us feel special, our waiter matt was extremely helpful and explained everything very well to us as well. we did the 4 course and enjoyed each part. the experience makes it all worth it even for the price!

We came here for my daughter's birthday. We made reservations and even though we were a few minutes late due to weather our table was ready for us and we were seated quickly. The server was very nice and helpful in answering our questions. The portions seem to have gotten smaller over the years, but the quality is still very good. I do like they they have added more options to their menu. The waiter had no issues when we asked to have the check split down the middle. Overall it was a wonderful night out and our birthday girl enjoyed herself.

Our experience was wonderful! We loved that we weren't rushed and could spend time enjoying the food and each other's company. We went to the Melting Pot for our 15th wedding anniversary on the recommendation of a friend and it was perfect. We shared an intimate booth, our waiter was great and the food was delicious. We will definitely be going again when we are in town!

First off I want to say that our service this evening was superb. Zach was top notch and definitely attentive to all of our needs. This would be a five star review except for some of the food was lacking.
The cheese course had tomatoes served with it. While I like tomatoes the fondue just rolls off of it so it is a bit weird. The salads were super skimpy. We have been here several times before so this was a surprise. They have always been larger and more filling. Lastly which was our own choice, we got the Bourginonne (sp?) Oil to cook our food in. We have always gone with the broths before and will stick to that moving forward. The oil itself is not so bad but the tempura and sesame batters that they gave to dip your meat in and then cook in the oil were awful. They did not stick to the meat at all and you have to hold your fondue skewer in the oil and not let it set in the pot. This is not easy to then eat and cook at the same time like you can normally do. Overall Zach is what turned this from being a 3 star review. So good job Zach!

Melting pot delivers again. Suprised my wife with a birthday dinner. She had never been to a melting pot. The ambiance was perfect. Dim lighting, quite scene, gourmet menu. She loved it. We did the 4 course and I think the cheese was her favorite. We had a great time and would definitely stop in anytime we are in for those important date night opportunities.
