About The Melting Pot - Houston
The Melting Pot Restaurant is where fun is cooked up fondue style. Whether you’re celebrating a birthday, anniversary, long overdue date night or celebrating with a group.
We are the premier fondue restaurant, centrally located on Westheimer, providing a casually elegant dining experience and an intimate atmosphere. The relaxing four-course experience begins with a cheese fondue prepared table side and fresh salads while your entrée pot heats up. You’ll simmer a variety of meats, seafood and vegetables in the cooking style of your choice. Each morsel is hot, fresh and delicious and all entrées are accompanied by an array of dipping sauces. Chocolate fondue is the finale, served with decadent dippers. Most make reservations for the four-course dining experience but more than a few have stopped by to satisfy that cheese fondue or chocolate craving. The Melting Pot also features a great wine list, specialty cocktails and martinis.

Extremely loud. Waited 20 minutes after reservation to be seated. Took one hour from reservation time to recieve first course. Waiter was polite but busy. He was not able to check on us after he dropped off our food. Too expensive for what you get. Many people dining in cut off jeans, flip flopsflops and Tshirts onaSaturdaynight

Melting Pot offers a unique if pricey experience. We go there when we deserve a treat, and it's a great place to catch up with friends and family over a long meal. If you expect to enjoy all the courses, then be prepared to give at least a couple hours to the meal. Definitely make a reservation if you can

What a wonderful experience! It was my first time to go and our group had the HRW menu. Wish I remembered our server's name because he was fantastic. I'm definitely going back and will save more room for dessert next time.

This is one of those places that is great to try at least once and maybe even twice, but it's not something I would regularly go to just because of all the work involved with the entrees. While I really liked the cheese fondue appetizers and the chocolate fondue desserts, I was not a fan of having to cook/boil your own entrees.

It was my first experience at The Melting Pot and it was great! The food was good. They do have quite a few varieties and flavors on the menu. The portion of food was actually perfect for me. The place was quiet when we first got there. The service was excellent. Both my husband and I enjoyed the evening there.

We enjoyed an amazing three-course meal with matching wine flight. The cheese fondue appetizer was scrumptious, and the entrée was both filling and delicious. They offered sauces and coatings for our beef, shrimp, and chicken and the combinations were a delight to try. For dessert, we had a dark chocolate fondue with fruits and pastry pieces for dipping.
The service was well-timed, responsive and cheerful. All was wonderful. We will definitely return.

The Fondu is not the Switzerland Fondu. They just give soup to boil the meats, it is a bit like Chinese hotpot and the sauce they provided for the meat are totally different from Europe. Anyway, it is not Switzerland Fondu and it is not Chinese hotpot. Just Funny way to do it.
About the Cheese Fondu, their cheese is not up to standard. Just cheap cheese.

We went for Houston Restaurant Weeks. There are very few great deals for the price during this month, and this restaurant is one of them. This was our first time ever coming to a Melting Pot restaurant, and it was great. We left full, happy, and ready to plan our next trip back. The service is comparable to a 5-star restaurant, and the food is very good.

Another amazing visit to Melting Pot - Houston. This time our server was Jessica, and she was amazing (knowledge, personable, and attentive). The food was phenomenal, and the experience sublime. Highly recommended

My husband and I took our 6-year-old son for an early dinner. We took advantage of restaurant week and ordered two four-course meals. The appetizer fondue was exceptional. The salad was good. The second course we had moho with the vegetarian plates, and that was acceptable but nothing spectacular. Our son wasn't crazy about the food until the chocolate course arrived. Our waiters were very busy, so they were somewhat distracted at times, but they explained everything perfectly, so we didn't have any issues. Overall, the meal was quite enjoyable.

I love the general ambiance of this place, nice lighting, comfortable tables which are also private so you don't feel like you are intruding on other people's conversations. The food is amazing with the added fun of having to cook your main yourself. Cocktail menu is fresh and fun. Would highly recommend the Flaming Turtle chocolate course!

The server was very energetic and with pleasing personality. She took care of us all night. Great meal for special occasion. I even texted my co-worker to take her sister from London who is in town to try this place since it is delicious and a good deal for only $35 each.

My wife and I love The Melting Pot and have been coming here for a couple years. The food and service are always excellent, and we've requested the service of Les the last few times. Les always takes such great care, and not only does he know us by name, but he knows what type of cheese and chocolate fondue we prefer. He has also made some excellent suggestions.
We'll keep going back!
