About The Melting Pot - Boise
At the Melting Pot we specialize in fun and interactive four-course fondue dinners, great for every occasion. The fondue experience begins with a savory cheese fondue prepared tableside, followed by your choice of fresh salad. For the main event, choose from a wide variety of tantalizing meats, seafood, and fresh vegetables, certain to please even the most particular of palates. Then cook them tableside in one of our savory broths or even in traditional oil. All of our entrée selections are paired with our famous house dipping sauces, including the garden fresh green goddess, our sweet teriyaki glaze, and the tangy ginger plum sauce. And just when you think it couldn't get better, the grand finale: a choice of decadent chocolate fondues presented with a platter of sweet bits for dipping.

The Melting Pot - Boise Ratings and Reviews
Tucker was our waiter. He explained to us that it was his third night serving. He turned out to be a super friendly guy, quick with a smile, and, actually, quite knowledgeable for being the new guy. Thanks to him, our food all turned out. Our only issue; stomachs not big enough for all that food!😉 Good stuff. Can't wait to see Tucker at The Melting Pot again!!!
An enjoyable experience. Very leisurely, taking 3 plus hours to enjoy a 4 course meal. Environment was very pleasant. Waiter was new and did take longer than usual to bring some items, but he was very nice and trying hard. Pretty pricey but it is the unique experience that you are paying for. The food was fresh and very tasty.
Our daughter works at your corporate office in Tampa, Fl. so we decided to give it a try while in Boise for a wedding. The food was great, but the phone app to check our cooking time was not explained until we were done eating. It was difficult to try to read our watches in the darkened room. The Melting Pot is a special occasion place, as it is on the high end spectrum for pricing.
I've only visited twice, never had fondue before so I was very excited. My last visit there was WAY to much wine used to make the cheese fondue, almost unbearable to eat. Dessert is always fabulous, you can't go wrong with melted chocolate. I don't like the meat portion of the fondue, your pretty much 'boiling' steak in flavored broth so not very appetizing in my opinion, but the shrimp was good so I can imagine if you did all seafood platter as your main course it would be a success.
Brought my husband as a special surprise. It was super fun, amazing friendly service, and romantic atmosphere. The entire experience might be longer than at another restaurant but it gave us more time to talk. Just be aware that they don't have their own parking.
Good vittles, friendly people and an unhurried atmosphere = the only downtown Boise establishment we'll repeatedly patronize. Without a doubt, "The Melting Pot" is our favourite "go to" Boise restaurant.
For first time patrons, be advised that the whole Melting Pot experience is an entertainment event as well as a dinner. The average time for dining may vary, however a full course meal for a party of four usually takes us about two hours; so plan "after dining" activities accordingly. The relaxed unhurried atmosphere is another reason we enjoy this restaurant.
As I stated above, a dining party will experience a great dinner as well as a fun experience.
We spent Friday night dining at the Melting Pot, and it was fantastic! Our server walked us through the menu with patience and great advice. The food was fantastic, and we loved our corner booth, which had great privacy. We highly recommend this place for a romantic date!
The melting pot in Boise blew us away. We were an hour early for our reservation and the manager did what he could do get us in earlier. Which we greatly appreciated becauase our original reservation was at 8:30pm. Since it was our first time at the melting pot our waiter walked us through the process and encouraged us to ask questions, if we did not understand the menu/process. All four courses were amazing and the process was so much fun. Definitely a fun place to go on a date!
Your restraunt has always been a very nice place to dine with your loved ones or couples. The cost of the evening warrants a quiet setting for couples. This was the third time i have taken my spouse and we are in for 125 to 150 dollar evening. Our evening was spoiled by an infant that cried the entire evening. We have young and infant grand children that we dine with in a lower value setting not to disturb adults that pay higher prices to get away from this kind of disturbance. Your food and service is wonderful and i do not want to complain about the environment, but people need to get a little common since about where they dine with small children and infants. Sorry for this complaint, but we may consider other restruants in the future for our special occasions and continue to take our young family members to places like Red Robin.
