The Melting Pot - Grand Rapids Ratings and Reviews

I took my girlfriend out for our anniversary and it was our first time there. The food was amazing and so was the service. Our server took the time to explain the whole menu and answer any questions we had. We will definitely be back.

I've been to this Melting Pot 5 times now and this was a very poor experience compared to the others. Recipes seemed slightly different-cheddar cheese fondue was extremely garlicky (and I really like garlic) and the coconut rum fondue was cold and watery. Plate of dippers for the chocolate wasn't impressive-bananas were brown, strawberries were overripe and the marshmallows were slimy. I have never experienced such poor food quality at a Melting Pot (have been to 4 others) and am hoping the grand rapids location was just having an off day.

Our waitress Brandy was absolutely amazing. She made our dining experience absolutely wonderful. She had a great personality and you could tell that she really enjoys what she does. The next time we visit we will definitely be requesting to sit in Brandy's section !!

Worst service we have experienced there. This was our fifth time coming and we are usually in and out in about two hours. We were there for three hours and 45 minutes. It was 45 minutes before we even received our first course. We had to wait so long in between courses. It was very disappointing. The waitress would just disappear.

I went with a friend for a birthday celebration and we had a private booth, perfect for conversation. The meal lasted about 3 hours but it was an awesome experience. We did the 4 course experience and the food was amazing. I would recommend the Land and Sea entree. The Turtle chocolate was amazing as well. Our server was Chase, and he was very attentive and explained things thoroughly. It was a little pricey, but worth the money. We definitely left there happy.

Had a great time, however, our server was nowhere to be found/ slow. We asked the hostess to find him a couple of times, for refills of several things, or simply sat at our table waiting for him to show up. Mid afternoon crowd was not an issue that day. We found ourselves sitting and waiting to continue our fondue experience because we were waiting for him, to either check on us or bring things ( bread, apples,goddess sauce, teriyaki sauce, pound cake, Krispie treat). Our meat was finished and we were waiting for him to bring more dipping sauce. We often visit, and it's become tradition to celebrate a particular birthday there. Don't know if this particular server was new, or just overwhelmed, but it did,somewhat, ruin the birthday tradition.

We had a great time dining at the Melting Pot. We started with the Wisconsin Cheddar fondue, which was delicious, and we loved the addition of the pretzel bread. We all enjoyed the the Classic menu, which provided an excellent variety of meat and seafood, and our server brought out plenty of extra sauces so that we could dip our meat and seafood to our content. We ended with the chocolate fondue, and our server even brought out extra bananas as they're our favorite part of the dessert course.

Took some friends as a "thank you". Marcus, our server, was Amazing! He engaged us and was quite entertaining. Our meal was fabulous. Do not visit Melting Pot if you're in a hurry. It's an experience as much as a meal.

The food was very good. The service was excellent except for 2 thing.
When we ordered a cheese fondue appetizer we didn't know and we're not informed we would be charged for 2 appetizers
There wasn't a pen with the check. I had to go track one down.
There should be some kind of a clock so you can accurately cook your food

Definitely Not impressed. Poor /Slow/ sarcastic server. Didn't take time to explain anything even though we told him we had never been, and I asked again how it worked .. Glazed over everything. Food was Meh.. For the price we could have had a fabulous dinner at Chophouse or Ruth's Chris

Waitress did not tell us there was a full charge for the broth we selected. It wasnt an upcharge but a full charge. The dipping process was fun. Glad we had the groupon. Otherwise it have been over $50 and we only drank water. Fun but wont go back due to the price.

The food was excellent and our server was very nice. He answered all of our questions and made us feeling comfortable right away. He asked about food allergies and did what we asked. He was very polite. We would go there again for a nice quiet time.

The melting pot isn't just dinner is a whole experience. Its interior combines modernity with romanticism. The service was a little slow after we ordered, but overall this is a great place to go for a special occasion

We really enjoyed the experience a a family as it was our first time dining here. It was my wife's birthday. The service was excellent.
I did think it was quite overpriced however. The bill with tip was over $200 for a family of 5 with 2 of the 5 being under 10 and we did not get desert and no alcohol. The entree portions were very small, salads were good, but small. In the end, it was a fun family experience and were glad we did it once, but would not go back again based on the value.

I've been to several Melting Pot restaurants, and the Grand Rapids location delivered the quality and service that I've come to expect. The atmosphere was fantastic, and the cozy two person private booth was a perfect setting for a romantic evening. The server was stellar, and he provided many helpful recommendations in terms of menu selections. The quailty of the food was also very good, no surprise there. The Melting Pot is not just a meal, it's an experience!

We were looking forward to the experience but left disappointed. The cheese fondue was good, but it ended up costing us $36 for four people. You would think you could get a 5-gallon bucket of cheese for $36. We were a bit mislead by our waiter. The process of cooking meat in a caldron of boiling oil left the steak, duck, tuna & pork looking gray and unappetizing. One & done.

The service was great, our server was was very friendly and made genuine conversation, nothing is more annoying that rehearsed talking points, lol. My wife and I were seated near the back in a small but cozy table, very secluded and relaxing environment, very romantic setting. All four courses were great, only thing I could suggest to do better is more of a variety of vegetables. The Potstickers were amazing!!
