The Melting Pot - Grand Rapids Ratings and Reviews

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!!

We waited 10 minutes at our table till until a server came by to drop off water and told us our server would be right over. It was another few minutes until our waitress came by and we were told we couldn't use our groupon since it was not valid on Saturdays. I wasn't too upset by that. So my mom and I decided to just get bread and cheese fondue, and our waitress never even asked us what we wanted to drink because we never even ordered the water we got. We got the garlic herb cheese (cannot remember exactly what it was called), and it was awful. Our waitress put way too much wine in it, and it didn't even taste like cheese. I think our server was mad at us because she rarely checked on us since we just go the appetizer. She kept asking us if we wanted chocolate fondue and we kept telling her no thanks. She simply dropped off the bill without really saying thanks to us; my mom and i realized afterwards she never got our drink orders or stated her name the whole time she was serving us. Overall, the portions of the food, the quality of the food, the service, and the whole dining experience was awful. I would not recommend this place to anyone.

The place was nice, but prices are well high. I get that your getting a four course meal, but you have to cook your own protiens.
We sat at the bar and well the first pot sat in front of us had no water in it, so it started to smoke and we were coughing from the smoke for about 5 minutes before the bartender took it away. Sad part other workers noticed it and did nothing. The workers were very laxed and really did not speak to guests unless they were at their stations. I found that odd as I have done customer service for over 20 years and no matter who sat at my station or a co-workers station I always spoke to people. I just was not impressed at all with the experience, even my 14 year old daughter was not impressed. Unfortunately we will not be attending The Melting Pot again.

Spilled drink on my guest. Brought another. Wrong drink. Beef was like chewing leather. One protein was pork instead of chicken. Took our dinner off bill because we didn't eat it but still charged for drinks ( 2 teas) and my groupon was used. All in all, felt guilty so left a tip, donated to St Judes , ended up paying for part of the meal and left with wet cold pants.

We love The Melting Pot for too many reasons to list. From the quiet, private booths to the coupons for 6 free chocolate dipped strawberries for your birthday and anniversary, to the FANTASTIC food! Love everything about it!

Was not impressed at all. We had heard a lot of hype and thought okay let's try it for our anniversary. It was very expensive for what we had and not a fan of cooking my food in broth. It was tasteless. The waitress was very nice . But for us never again. We sat in a very dark corner booth (by the bathroom) and could hardly read the menu. Will not recommend the restaurant to anyone

Such a wonderful visit! We love this place and this trip did not disappoint! We were early for our reservation so we sat at the bar for a drink. The bartender was lovely. Our server was wonderful too. The owner even came around and made sure we were well taken care of. The food was delicious as always. Well worth the money in our opinion. I would recommend making a reservation though, they tend to get busy. I wonder why?! :)
