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 is our go-to place for special occasions. My husband & I celebrated our 34th wedding anniversary there and everything was fantastic! Our server, Jessica, was super-good! She was friendly and attentive, but not hovering or bothersome. Jessica seemed to know when we needed anything and was one of the best Melting Pot servers that we've ever had! Excellent dining experience with Melting Pot-again!

Tony was our waiter is was my husbands birthday. It was both of our first time at the restaurant and we loved it. We had a nice secluded corner booth in the back of the restaurant. The service was great and the server was extremely knowledgeable. We will definitely be going back.

The restaurant is dark, which is a bit disconcerting for brunch, but I imagine would be great for dinner. The fondue was very good, the strawberry salad was pretty good. The prices are expensive for the full meal, but I had just the fondue and a salad, so it was not too expensive. If you are in the mood for fondue, this is a good place for it.

The quality of the food was top notch. They sauces for dipping your meat in aren't very good. They really skimp on the amount of cheese and chocolate in the fondues. There should be more. The place was nice and quiet. I wasn't there on a date, but think it would make a nice date night. The broccoli we cooked with the meat was oddly too spicy.

It was the second time for me, first for my boyfriend and it will not be the last. Absolutely amazing experience our server was fantastic, there was a portion where he was not available but teamwork here between servers was excellent.

The experience of dining at the Melting Pot is unique! When you order the 4 course meal make sure that you realize that if you choose any other than the "original" courses there is an additional charge added to your bill!

We had a great time visiting The Melting Pot! Our food was fresh, our server attentive, and we never felt rushed at all. Service was prompt at each course, and the waitress helped make sure we understood the whole process.

It was a great experience and really enjoyed ourselves. It is a bit pricey, but really nice for special occasion. We have never been to a Fondue restaurant, so if you have never been I highly recommend you try it. The chocolate fondue is to die for.

Great service and fun environment. Always fun for a group if you want to enjoy a longer dinner, and want to leave feeling miserably full! This location never disappoints, and if you get there early there is happy hour at the bar.

Fun experience and good food. The server was helpful and informative as it was our first time. We enjoyed each of the foundries but cheese was the best.A little pricey overall but that's why it's really a place for special occasions. Would go back.

The Melting Pot has been a go to spot for my family and I for years. It's fun and different. The service is always great and has long as you have a reservations they seat full parties on time.
The one thing I noticed this meal was that the portions were much smaller. You can ask for more veggies and fruit but when we asked by the time we got them from our waiter the next course was ready to be served. We still walked out of The Melting Pot with full bellies but I remember in years past walking out with leftovers.

Took our 13 year old daughter & her friend. We all had a great time. Our waiter, Heron I think, was fantastic. I recommend getting the meat add on to the cheese fondue. We tried all of the meats plus lobster tail for the entree & they were all really good. Overall, a fun dinner, good food and great service. 5 stars from us!!

My husband and I went to celebrate our anniversary. Our waitress was very helpful. She even brought me gluten free bread on her own because I mentioned I was gluten free. The food was good. But it is a little stress ful to cook your own raw meat. You have to time it. A little sand timer might be helpful. We used our phones. Then you have to make sure you don't touch the cooked meat with the raw meat. The staff signed a Happy anniversary Card for us. That was nice.
We could hear the booths next to us. There were kids the parents were scolding and a couple on the other side that argued half the time. Lol maybe some music would be nice. We enjoyed it. Recommend go for desert which was fantastic and drinks.

Our son wanted to go to a "fancy" restaurant for his birthday. Since he was turning 6, we also needed a place that was kid-friendly. Our children will eat a wide variety of foods so for us, kid-friendly means that the wait time between dishes is short and the restaurant has the option of ordering a smaller portion. The Melting Pot was a hit. The atmosphere met his birthday wish, the fondue was fun for both of our kids, my parents, my husband and myself, and the food was good. I've been to the Melting Pot twice now - once for an anniversary dinner and now for a birthday dinner and both times it was great.
My husband and I were told by some friends that it was a great date night place to go. They were right on the money! It was romantic and fun. The drinks were fantastic and the food too good for words. It's a little pricey but the amount of food you get coupled with the excellent drinks and ambiance was well worth the money spent. We will definitely be going there again!
