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

Surprised my wife with a birthday dinner here and she loved it. Great food, great drinks and even better dessert. The place is generally quiet and relaxing, but during our visit there was a group that didn't know how to use their inside voices. Server was excellent as well. Can't wait to go back. Highly recommend going here.

I love the Melting Pot. I've been going for years. But, I absolutely hated my server. She was awful. She was fake. Her trainee was better than her at making sure our table was bussed and we ere happy than she was. That speaks volumes!! She even served me the wrong entree and I called her out on it and she proceeded to argue with me. To which I stated, let me see the menu. I'm not wrong. I was going to show her that she was. I ordered an $85 bottle of champagne. My tab was $260+ I know that menu well and all he could come back with was the correct entree and a couple more pieces. A manager should have been at my table to apologize at the very least!!

Would definitely come back, food tasted great. Would probably just get the cheese and dessert course though, thought the protein/veggie course was decent but not on the same level as the cheese! Service was decent but not amazing.

Incredible experience! We felt a little underdressed, but we are from Twin and didn't know what to expect. Our server was phenomenal and I will absolutely be coming back. She made my boyfriends birthday great! Thankyou.

Sarah was our Fonduist again and she went above and beyond the call of duty!!!! Even though it was a Saturday night and it was busy Sarah made us feel extremely comfortable and appreciated. Love Sarah to pieces!!!!

Food was great but the service was beyond slow. I think we waited over 30 minutes just to get our bill. Not to mention the other 15, 20, and 30 minute wait we had.we were there for over 3 1/2 hours. That to me was not impressive.

This was our second time going to The Melting Pot. It was a great experience. The food was once again outstanding and we had tons of fun while dipping and cooking our food. Definitely a great place for a date night or a special occasion.

Hosted a small Bridal Shower dinner for a friend. We were able to have a large table with 3 pots going at a time which allowed for great conversation as well as incredible food. Ryan was our server and did an incredible job - we had people that were seasoned fondue consumers as well as some people that were fondue virgins! He did a great job of taking care of our entire group as well as being available for menu information, details, and recommendations. Fondue is such a wonderful group experience and the ability to share food and flavors is a great way to spend the evening with friends.

I fell in love with this place after my first visit. Here's why:
The fondue/chocolate/cooking stew is made table-side, making for great, personal service opportunities which they definitely take advantage of.
The four-course option is expensive but offers an exceedingly and surprisingly large amount of food. Even the most macho hungry-man will be rolling out of the restaurant.
It's quiet, dim, and very personal. Particularly at two-person tables, everything was closed in or had barriers between other guests. It made the experience very one-on-one.
Variety found here is amazing - I was even impressed with my salad. It had eggs, mushrooms, spicy candied nuts, and a fantastic vinaigrette. The main course came with some combination of three or four meats - mine had shrimp, steak, and duck.
I will definitely be coming back!

We went to celebrate our daughter's 16th birthday. It was a fun time and everyone enjoyed the meal. However, nothing was done by the staff to recognize my daughter on her birthday even after mentioning it at the time of reservation and as we were seated. The service was good. The main disappointment was that it was overpriced for what was provided. The food was good, but it was not $40 per person good. I would really like to see the food quality improve for that price point.

Excellent setting and romantic ambiance - full points for that. Many/most of the tables are in private/intimate settings and let you enjoy your company without interruptions from others in the restaurant. The portion sizes were good, not too small, not too big. Filet mignon doesn't work that great in a fondue (I'd rather just grill it) - but the shrimp and the lobster were absolutely fantastic. My recommendation to anyone who goes would be to go for seafood in the fondue. Our server was very attentive to our needs, very friendly and yet not overbearing or intrusive. All in all, my wife loved it for our anniversary celebration, and that's what counts.

I was looking for a special place for our anniversary and had read a review about the melting pot. It was a great experience and fit right into our vegetarian diet. From the anniversary card on the table to the attention shown by the manager it was great. Our waitress paige was very friendly and attentive and the best fondue instructor ever. With so many restaurants to try we hardly ever go back a second time but we will be returning to the melting pot and probably take the whole family this time.

my date and I had a wonderful time! our waiters were awesome and super friendly! the food was spectacular. I wish I would've known that we could've split the meal because it was a lot of food and it would've made it way less expensive. Everything was great, I definitely want to go back.

My girlfriend and I choose Melting Pot to have dinner and celebrate her birthday. We wanted something 'new' and a 'different' and we were pleasantly surprised. We were both new to the Fondue and luckily our waitress Kristina was an absolute gem. She was cordial, professional, informative and funny. The whole evening was excellent but it was her friendly service that made it perfect!
Great for special occasion!
They went out of their way to make our special birthday celebration even better! Even a candle to blow out for the birthday girl. Also, we very much appreciated the plate of gluten free dessert goodies for our family member with celiac. Looking forward to our next visit to The Melting Pot!
I also recommend making reservations with Open Table.
Colossal waster of time and money
Our family celebrated a birthday at The Melting Pot. The food was average at best, and the time required was excessive. We were there for nearly two hours, spent 180$ on around 40$ worth of food, endured an obnoxious, loud group next to us, and left very disappointed. We will not return.
