The Melting Pot - Larkspur Ratings and Reviews
Great place as we celebrated one of our Son's birthday. From the moment we walked in the door and down to the last bite, the overall experience was fantastic. You can't beat the atmosphere - hey dinning in an old brick kiln is pretty cool. Food was excellent and the service matched. Large group 8 to12 will be comfortable at the extra large table.
I go to this restaurant a least 1 or 2 times a year. I am always late and the one time I'm early they literally made me wait 15 min until my reservation time.not happy. I spend a lot of money when I come here and I expect to be treated like a valued customer and being petty about 15 min not OK. The food was good the service was great Kerry was my waiter and I had an great time.
The server, Nicholas, was incredibly polite and met all our needs. The food was great, but the experience was even better.
It's something you have to experience at least once in your life.
High key wanted to leave the waiter my digits but I didn't have a pen.
We are Melting Pot lovers. My niece was in town from Florida and goes to her Florida Melting Pot all the time. I go with her and wish there were a few more days we could go together. Everything was great. Might hit it one more time before she leaves town, it's that good, for us anyway!
Food was good it was a nice setting. It was quiet and romantic I believe every husband should make a reservation. Although the portion are a bit small the atmosphere made up for it. It was a great more of a quality of time type of date more communication it is hard to explain. Nothing rushed did not feel pressured to hurry it was a good hour and a half to two hours of alone time with my wife. In a romantic type of a setting. She enjoyed it it was are 22nd anniversary and it made her feel happy.
We LOVED our experience with this MP location! It was the most decorative MP setting that I have ever been to, the building was beautiful. And our waiter--Chomp, Chom, Chump, Chum!? He was absolutely amazing! The hostess was as sweet as she could be, too. And our Classic 4-course meal did not disappoint & great wine. Amanda and I will be back for years to come! Thank you to the whole staff, y'all rocked!!!
We were seated in a very cozy booth and being in an old brick foundry it is not a great place for views but the interior is really, really cool and adds to the great ambiance of the place. The cocktails are very tasty and the cheese fondue and dessert fondue was wonderful. The price was relatively cheap for what we received and I will continue to return to The Melting Pot in the future.
What a wonderful dining experience for my family. Took my children for a special dinner. The food was amazing but that's a given. What most made this occasion so special was our waiter Zane. He was able to turn a frown upside down from one of my children, and created a truly special dinner for my family. He kept our family laughing the entire time even though he was so busy with other customers and his level of passion and caring for his job and our family was remarkable. Be sure to ask for Zane!
We really like the melting pot the food is great. However, the service last night was terrible. Very nice waiter but his response time was poor. We ordered drinks and did not get them for 20 min. He never checked in on us and we had to ask other waiters (twice) to get his attention.
We were there for 2:15 min. A little too long fir dinner.
I came here with my wife and three-year-old son. The food was delicious. The social aspect of fondue is stimulating. And the staff are all very cordial.
However, we were assigned a waiter who clearly had too many tables. Consequently, other larger groups arrived after we did and left before. All while being waited on hand and foot. On the other hand, we were left waiting for long periods of time. Our wine pairings came out long after we'd finish a course. And after finishing each course, we'd have to wait fifteen minutes or more for our waiter to return and acknowledge us. All in all, this meal took over two hours.
Always fund to do fondue but felt almost forced to go for the meet options and ended out spending more than we wanted and eating more than we wanted. Though waiter was nice, he could have done a better job explaining the whole set up. We were kind of confused - and we lived in Switzerland and know how to fondue!
Maybe it was just a bad night as I've had wonderful experiences previously at this restaurant. On this evening, the food quality wasn't as good as it has been on prior visits and the service started strong then completely fell apart. We were left for over 30 minutes without any server check in. The temperature in the restaurant became so hot servers and customers were sweating.
Have come here for the second year in a row for my boyfriends birthday and we love it. Dress up a little and look nice, but not too formal. Service has been great both times, but it's the food that has us coming back. Great options and nothing had disappointed us yet. The presentation of the meal is amazing!
I always love eating here but was sadly disappointed this time around. As a member of he fondue club I was supposed to get a half dozen strawberries, and called ahead of time to claim. I never received them. It was my wife's 40th birthday, that information was included in my dining reservations. It was never acknowledged. Ordered a Moscow mile, it did not come in a copper cup, my daughters shirley temple had no cherries in it, and our waiter was less than attentive to say the least... When a bill comes for over $400 for a party of 6 people, I do have a certain level of expectation. This was sorely amiss. Too bad, on other occasions we have had phenomenal service and meals...
I have eaten here before and loved it. It was a great experience again this time with the exception of the waiter. I believe he was new but someone should have still been helping him learn how to work the tables. Our service was extremely slow, he forgot things we asked for so we just didn't ask again, and he kept turning down the fondue pot so our cheese and chocolate was cold so we had to regulate the temperature ourselves in order to complete the meal. Still a great restaurant but wait staff needs help.
We continue to get great service, friendly waiters attentive to detail - whether we are party of two or a party of six or more! The manager, Wendy, runs a tight ship and therefore, Melting Pot continues to be our children's favorite celebratory dining venue! Terrific cheese & chocolate fondue options, and also healthier versions for adults who are watching what they eat, and always a fun place to try something novel in Marin.
We booked a reservation for a birthday. Requested a balloon and flowers be set up at the table upon our arrival. We were sat 20 minutes after our reservations and our balloon/ flower request was not granted. We reminded the hostess of our request and still, she somehow forgot .. again. Over all the customer service was not great.
