The Melting Pot - Arrowhead Ratings and Reviews

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.

We celebrated New Years Eve dinner there. The dinner was fine except for the champagne cheese fondue was bitter. I understand that a premium is charged for the set menu on this night, however I think the experience as over priced. the cuisine did not deliver the quality of other options

We had a lovely relaxing evening. The Melting Pot has a large selection of items, sauces, cheeses, broths, chocolates etc. You can pick whatever you would be interested in trying. One selection has unlimited main course items and we were too full to even have more. It was very nice, the staff were very polite and accomodating. I have a diet issue and they changed the salad to fit my diet. Thanks Melting Pot for a wonderful Anniversery.

Very enjoyable evening....our server was Andy and he was knowledgeable and just the right amount of friendly. Food was great, service was great..only negative was the small child climbing on and kicking the seat behind us. I think it's more of an adult place!!

This was the second time we went to a Melting Pot restaurant. The last time was quite a few years ago and I didn't remember much about it except it was enjoyable. We were celebrating
our 49th wedding anniversary and wanted someplace special and this place was recommended to us. We enjoyed everything. We ordered and shared the 4 course dinner. The steak and shrimp were excellent. The terriyaki steak, chicken and pork was way too spicy for us and that would be the only drawback to our evening. I didn't think the meats would be spicy...so that
was a negative. We couldn't finish even these small portions. Next time we will try a different
cheese and oils. Overall....we had a good time and would recommend it to anyone that is
willing to spend the time and $. Really enjoyed the chocholate ending to the meal.

My husband and I had our three anniversary at the Melring Pot and had the best experience. Our waiter was very friendly and helpful with the entire process. Even though it was a slow night, the manager came over to ask us how our first experience was going. We had purchased the romance package, that came with a picture and they offered to retake as many as we wanted to get the perfect picture for our perfect night.

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.
