The Melting Pot - Larkspur Ratings and Reviews
Took My Fiance For Valentines Day . We Had A Very special Evening . Everything was Perfect and My Fiancé Really Enjoyed the Whole Expirience . Definitely a Very Cool Calm Romantic type Of Restraunt that'd I'd Recommend to anybody Looking to Try Something cool and fun with someone special .
The girlfriend and I were celebrating our anniversary but we didn't say anything when they asked. So that was fine. However our server would disappear without a trace for long periods of time. I timed it once and she was gone for over 15 minutes without so much as refilling water. The host noticed and tended to our table more than our server. We will be back next year, hoping for a better experience.
Thought it was a really amazing place. Planned out a meal ahead of time with my girlfriend online But when we got there they had changed the menu for Valentine's Day and it was four days before. They charged 75 a person for a meal that although was amazing yes was definately twice as much as going on s regular day. If we had known ahead of time we would have gone a different day but nothing online had told us about the change. The food was great, the four cheese fondue was killer and the dessert was to die for. But not worth what we had paid because of the limited meal for Valentine's Day
I usually enjoy coming here with my daughter--it's a fun family dining out experience. However, this time there was a fixed price meal that was $75 a person, which I knew in advance--it was the weekend before Valentine's Day and I know restaurants tend to do special things around that time. However, the meal was barely different than an ordinary night at the Melting Pot and I'm not sure why such a premium was placed on the meal.
We love coming to this restaurant however the last two times we have been there we are told that our table has to wait for service of this or that because of another table. While I understand this can happen, its unfortunate that it has happen to us twice in a row. We are always a large party of 7 or more and would appreciate not having to be the table that has to wait.
It's our kids' favorite place for a family birthday dinner out. Full bar is nice and wines are solid. Service is always wonderful. It's not cheap, but for a fun night out to celebrate it's well worth it. It's a novelty to come here. Love the cheese course and the chocolate at the ends. Next time we might just order those!
We have been to the Melting Pot many times and loved it. However, our service was terribly slow this night. The waiter was trying to be funny, but it didn't work. Salads are now a third the size of what they were last year and the cheddar cheese used in one of our fondues seemed of a lesser quality than before.
Truly a terrible experience from beginning to end. We were forgotten about not once but twice by staff and thus spent two and a half hours on two courses. No apology. Didn't have time for dessert after all that. Food was meh. One order arrived incorrect. Another was missing an ingredient. Poor food. Terrible service. Horrific management. Likely will not return.
We celebrated my Partner's 50th Birthday, everything that I asked to have prepared upon our arrival was ready and waiting. That particular evening we had quite the storm so we were well attended to by many of the staff. That being said, on the other occasions we have gone there for dinner, we always receive excellent service. I appreciate that they do not rush you to finish your meal and get out. We typically will spend upwards of three hours enjoying the full four course menu. Lastly, I truly appreciate how they allow you to make substitutions if you don't particularly care for an item. I would recommend this restaurant for a truly unique dining experience.
Super fun and unique experience. We went for my daughters's 12th Birthday and our whole family loved it. The food was sophisticated enough for adults but not overly exotic for kids. Save room for the chocolate dessert fondue. Yum! We'll definitely be back.
The food is marginal. The cheese and chocolate fondues are the best. If you don't need the whole meal, I would suggest skipping the meat portion. It always sounds better than it is. Service is super slow, starting with getting seated, ordering drinks and the meal. I had to hunt down someone to pay our bill. I don't recommend dinner if you have young children either. The average meal takes 2.5 hours. Not great for short attention spans. This place is only good for the novelty of it. Nothing really that special.
Always great and a favorite, The Melting Pot rises high above the bar of most dining experiences. We drive about an hour to enjoy this and never regret it. These statements are based primarily on two things: Great food and lots of time to enjoy it! Management does not focus on the number of turns but instead, they focus on an extraordinary dining experience. It's not "cheap" but it's definitely worth it; a good value! The food is very high quality. There are gluten free choices too. The Four Course experience is sensational and plentiful. The Bourguignonne cooking style is a sure winner but the Coq Au Vin is one to try too. The wine list is good and the corkage was $20.00 for that special wine we brought from the cellar.
A big thumbs up for The Melting Pot - Again!
An EXCELLENT experience and delicious food! A huge shout-out to our waiter (whose name I don't remember) who took care of us efficiently AND warmly. We had a time constraint and the meal went smoothly without feeling rushed! Of course we always love the incredible fondues, especially the cheese and chocolate! We have had various different fondues and have always loved them!
I love The Melting Pot! Our service was great, the food was absolutely delicious, and overall the prices are pretty decent for the experience. I would absolutely recommend this resteraunt to anyone wanting to enjoy a calm evening with good food and great friends.
We had a blast! How romantic and fun. The food was phenomenal and the experience was unique. The only critique I have is that, I think our waiter was slightly inexperienced or new. We were sat at the wrong table and had to get up and move, also we weren't given instructions on how to exactly do the "fondue" experience. He just put our food down and left. We heard other tables getting instructions from their waiters. So we were left to figure it out ourselves. I think having an instruction would have made our experience a little easier. We weren't quite sure how long to leave in the different meats, veggies and pasta, resulting in some overcooked and undercooked food. But we made a good time of it and will definitely go back.
The restaurant was overall very nice. It was my girlfriends birthday and the hostess had called prior to ask if I would like rose petals or some other things on the table once we had arrived. The wait was short and we were greeted kindly by a nice waiter. He was quick and attentive to our table and was nice enough to explain everything as we were first timers. The food was amazing and very fun to pick out and cook, my girlfriend and I had a blast. Would recommend! 🔥
I have been to the melting pot three times now, all for different occasions, and it never fails to please. While they maintain mostly the same menu, it's full of so many individual options you can't get bored. All the waiters are trained to do their job very well; do not fear if you're a first-timer. Love love love!
