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.

The Melting Pot - Houston Ratings and Reviews
I met with a business acquaintance/friend that we have not seen each other in 25 years, all contact was by phone. We met and brought each other up to speed on our personal lives, both struck by sadness recently, The atmosphere was quiet, the pace was unhurried, the food was delicious and portions more than sufficient. Our server was attentive and unobtrusive, very professional.
Absolutely EXCELLENT dining experience at The Melting Pot Houston. My friends and I had never tried Fondue before. The experience was great. Lots of good food. Very helpful and knowledge staff to guide our culinary choices. Great for a romantic evening or a special outing with friends.
The service was unusually poor, the wait staff was not very attentive to water refills. The waiter was very slow to get courses started. The salads were forgotten and the main course had a steaming pot for more than 30 minutes before our meats were brought. Overall I was disappointed with the service and it was not up to par with what I expect from the melting pot. Additionally we had some St. Jude dining cards and could only use one. That was NOT made clear when we made the donation the waiter who sold it to us said we'd get $60 off our next meal not that we'd have to come 3 times in 8 months to get $20 off. These things are really making me less likely to choose The Melting Pot in the future.
Pricey for cooking your own bland food. Pricing is all messed up as well. Menu may say $9.99 for cheese fondue but if you have 4 people at your table, that's $40 you didn't expect, for just cheese! We didn't want salads so we ordered a la carte, paid double what we would have paid if we would have just ordered the dinner package with the salad. Pricing is confusing and food isn't that great, therefore didn't make for an enjoyable experience.
The Beauty and the Beast themed lunch was so much fun! Michael, our server, was very attentive, funny, and my 7 year old granddaughter loved the "Princess" treatment! More themed dinners would be great! Thanks, Gavin, for stopping by the table. I appreciate your attention to customer comfort!
My husband and I have been to the Melting Pot twice for special occasions and both experiences were great. The food is great and the whole evening is a fun and romantic. They have private booths with perfect mood lighting. The staff is very attentive and they go out of their way to create an evening above you expectations. The 4 course meal is more than you can eat, everything is high quality and fresh. The whole meal lasted 2 hours because it really is a hands on experience. Thestaff is always ready with your next course which you take your time to enjoy.
My girlfriend and I's first time there and it was absolutely amazing, our server was DJ. I would strongly recommend him, he had extensive menu knowledge, was very friendly, and gave honest opinion on his favorites. We will definitely be returning in the future. All of the food was excellent and the atmosphere was just as it should have been. The manager Tony came by to make sure we were doing okay and even offered us a different side to enjoy with our cheese.
Our server JJ was superb. He recommended a number of items for us to try. The romance upgrade with a single rose and rose petals on the table was a hit with my wife. Overall, an expensive date. Will reserve The Melting Pot for special occasions. Not just date night.
February 25 was my anniversary so my two choices were Ruth Chris and the Melting Pot and I always try to dine in a romantic place so when I checked both places out online melting pot was the most romantic place out of the two I was very happy with the food and overwhelmed by how great the service was and I would like to thank you guys for helping me pull off a wonderful fifth anniversary
We had been talking about going here for 6 years and finally went to celebrate my husbands new job! It was far away, bet well worth it. Everyone was very friendly and our table was ready on time. The staff seemed to communicate very well and our waiter , JJ, was outstanding! We went at 545 and it was very quite and romantic. It is pricy but well worth it. We will defiantly be going back.
The experience is unique and personable. You will feel pampered even though you do most of the cooking and you've never had such fun doing it. The quisine has such personality that it seems to draw waiters that seem to love just being there to serve you and share in the joy of the adventure. You will not leave stuffed, but even if it is less than you would normally eat, it will find you satisfied none the less. You can share a four course evening for two for $90 something, but you may just find yourself adding a few extras and it would not feel right without leaving a healthy tip. This may limit it to special occasions, but it will not be a one time only occasion.
We come to this location a couple of times a year for special occasions. We enjoy the food and experience but the prices are pretty steep. You know that coming in of course but just wish the cost could be brought down. Don't expect to get out of there for less than $100 per couple. We had Nick as our waiter and he was awesome.
Recently my wife and I celebrated Valentine's Day with a wonderful dinner at the Melting Pot and we could not have wished more from the overall experience. The appetizer which was the Artichoke-Spinach cheese fondue was amazing followed by the salad course and then the main with meat, chicken, shrimp and salmon cooked in the coq-au-vin fondue...all totally amazing! We finished off with the Yin and Yang chocolate fondue with all the assortment of sweet things to dip. The service was impeccable and the value was great since we got the 4-course deal for two. I would recommend the Melting Pot to anyone for any truly special event and a unique dining experience.
This was my wife and my second time to dine here and I really do think this experience was way better than the first. Mainly because we knew what we were doing this time. Last time we were a little lost but this time was absolutely great. We had a great time. Our service was great and the food was awesome I'm really glad we decided to go back.
This was a nice one time experience, don't see myself going back unless it's just for dessert. The chocolate was amazing! Only reason I would not recommend this place is because cooking ur own food, remembering what's on each stick and cooking it's to the correct temp is just not relaxing.
