The food was wonderful and the service was exceptional. Our waitress made the evening very enjoyable. She was very knowledgeable about the menu and made some great recommendations. The service was prompt but we never felt rushed or waiting for the next course.

Awesome food our server was absent a lot and many requests had to be repeated... From water and drink refills to clearing the table as we ate
Wife's night out with girlfriend
Dinner here was excellent. If you like fondue and love to have tableside food prepared to your liking... this is the place for you. My girlfriend and I enjoyed the Mojo fondue to start with, then proceeded to enjoy shrimp, filet and lobster. My girlfriend had never been to The Melting Pot so this was a treat for her. Our entrée selections were delicious and we enjoyed being able to cook our food the way we liked it. We had many samples of dipping sauces and all were great. We enjoyed a bottle of wine with dinner and for dessert had the Amaretto Dark chocolate. A great place for a change of pace dining.
Great Grad Experience
Had been away from Melting Pot for awhile, but my high school graduate daughter picked the venue for our end-of-school family celebration. Service was very attentive, and just right for our festive mood, not too much or too little server interaction. Food was excellent, and timing of the courses was right on. I don't mind paying a little more for a great dining experience. In fact, the experience is pretty much all that I'm willing to pay for! I'm happy to say that Melting Pot is back on my list.
Overcharged and hungry
We were double charged and when I brought it up with the manager, it was not resolved. Paying $74 for what we had was insane. We were EACH charged $9 for the cheese and chocolate THAT WE SHARED, but only had single portions, not double. Total waste of money and left hungry. This was our second visit. Our first visit was great and we were charged for exactly what we got. Too bad we won't be back, based on our second unfortunate visit. On a positive note, our server was very friendly, the place was clean, and the environment was nice.
Food and service surprise
The service is exceptional and the shrimp, lobster and filet are fantastic. The k chickens was also good but still chicken. We had the 4 course meal with cheese fondue(amazing), salad, entries and chocolate fondue for desert. Plan plenty of time for. A fun evening. It took us over two hours to finish.
Fun experience of unique dining - try the full four course meal for all types of food - cheese and entrees are very good but the desserts are superb. TIP - eat at the bar and cheese and dessert courses are half price - a great deal.

Food and waiter were great. We always enjoy coming here . However, the hostess was unprofessional and made inappropriate comments that were not appreciated at all.
To die for
The cheese and chocolate fondue are to die for. Dinner was alright. Definitely will be back for an appetizer and dessert. Didn't think dinner was worth the cost.
Great girl's night spot
The restaurant was perfect for a mom's night out. A group of mom's from my daughter's school got together to celebrate the end of a crazy school year and chose the Melting Pot. The Restaurant Week deal was great. It was the perfect ambiance for a long relaxing dinner full of girl talk. Would definitely recommend the restaurant to friends.
Usually a great special occasion restaurant
This restaurant is my son's absolute favorite! For the first time ever, it did not live up to expectations. We did advise the manager and he was helpful. However, for my $200 celebration dinner I can get a better meal, service and, therefore, experience at a number of other local favorites. We will probably try again but only at my son's request.

Always went to the Melting Pot for special occasions as a kid (not this location.) I was excited to take my kids there. Whereas it was a fun experience, the location felt very dated - not much had changed since I was a kid! Super dark, old booths, the same as it did in the 90's!! The food was just ok. The portions were pretty small & nothing tasted like anything special. I will say the dessert fondue was awesome & our server was great. In the future, I think we'll eat elsewhere and go for dessert.
Special occasion gem
We have been coming here for over 15 years for our Anniversary and have never been disappointed. Great staff, fresh food, and more food than most can handle. Just as an FYI, if you don't want to spend a quality 1.5 to 2 hours with your company, I wouldn't come here. Also, you will be cooking your own food, so be prepared it is part of the experience. These are a couple of the reasons we enjoy coming here and will keep coming back. It is a unique dining experience that we enjoy each time we come back. Def recommend.

The cheese, and the meat! We did the May Charity menu and it was delicious. Four courses, 2.5 hours of memories. Loved the whole meal. They even had roses and a picture frame waiting for us.

The food is very good. But this is not a place I would bring children to. The cost is not for the shallow wallet customer. But at the same time I would recommend going. It is a unique experience and is interactive for you and your date/partner that is very enjoyable. If you have never been I would insist you save some money up and try it out. I feel you would enjoy it even if you never go a second time. I have been twice and am likely to go again in the future.

My husband and I celebrated our 32nd wedding anniversary at your restaurant. We had such a fun time! Our server was so sweet and the food was wonderful. I first was treated to your restaurant by some friends for my birthday earlier this year and told my husband about it. Needless to say, he was not disappointed - he loved it. We will definitely be back.

Dinner was very nice. A little dark so bring a flashlight or trust your server as we do. Service is always A+ Our server was very knowledgeable, friendly, and pleasant. Food is a little pricey, but it's a great place for a date or a special occasion.
This can be a special place
This visit was probably the slowest turn around time between courses ( an hour and half between the cheese and the main course). We weren't in a rush, but there was a noticeable drag -- without acknowledgement from anyone. Order two different bottles of wine ($100+) -- they were out of both, no recommendations were provided as alternatives that were in stock, so we opted out as we did not want the special occasion to have three strikes. Food was still good, and desert was wonderful.
I've been here once before and for mothers day. Both times I did the 4 course and it is well worth it. It's a great experience to get everyone engaged.
We for lunch on Mother's day. We were seated right away, the staff was very knowledgeable and attentive during our meal. Would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who is looking for a special occasion place to have a meal experience!

Very well trained staff. Pleasant, knowledgeable, just enough attention. Fondue was OK, a bit expensive.
Great food, great service, great ambiance. Wonderful privacy with booths that have curtains. Everyone is super helpful and will explain the details of what or how to order. My wife has a gluten allergy and she was accommodated very easily and she did not feel left out of the dinner. It was the first place we've eaten at where she's was included at every step of the meal and it was excellent gluten free food.

Price is you high for food offered.i will not return and service was okay.server made it seem like we should not be there.i paid for our meal and tipped generously regardless of the service.Thank you.
Had never been there before but the wife suggested it for our anniversary. Very quiet, very romantic. Food was outstanding. It was fun and different and overall a wonderful experience. For anyone looking for a great date-night idea, this is it.
We had been given gift cards to the Melting Pot as a new place to try. Boy was this a TREAT! The Staff was awesome and the food was too! Will definitely go again!

First time fun
My girlfriend and I went to Melting Pot on a Friday night. We were able to be seated a few minutes before our reservation time. Our server, Cody, was excellent at telling us about everything, including specials. He described the fondue process and even gave us some neat suggestions. Great place to go for a nice night out.

Nice, cozy environment for date night. Excellent cocktails and fondue.
Loved our dining experience at Melting Pot!
I brought my niece to the Glendale, AZ Melting Pot for the first time last Saturday. I can honestly say that it could not have been any better. We left feeling like It was one of the best dining experiences ever. It was so good that I am coming back this Saturday night with my dad. I hope that we get the same server. Her name was Rebecca and she was fabulous!
Went here for a late birthday celebration with a friend. I have not been to the melting pot in years and have been wanting to try it again. The food is better than it was when i was there a Couple years ago. It does take up a lot of time to do all 4 courses like we did but it was a fun experience. It was a little pricey but that is understandable given the quality and amount of food you get. I wish they would let you take the dessert dippers home though that would have been nice. The wait staff was very attentive and willing to do any substitution we asked.
Loved this place
My girlfriend and I celebrated our anniversary here, and boy are we glad we did! The food was amazing, it was a quiet and welcoming atmosphere, and our server provided some of the best service I had ever received. 10/10

I wish their sides for dipping were better you're paying a lot of money for the meal it would be nice to have a variety of breads that wasn't like yesterday's bakery special... They also give you like a pinch of veggies and apples. Like I said for the price I feel I should be eating like a king.
