We have been to this restaurant several times to celebrate our anniversary. It is always a special time - fun, intimate and romantic.

The food was not good at all. The bread for the appetizer came in a large bowl and was just random scraps of bread. I imagine that what we didn't eat will be recycled and given to another table, which is probably where ours came from too! The meat for the main course was not good either. My daughter loves to eat at The Melting Pot and she left the restaurant without eating anything-except for dessert. I feel that it is super over priced and absolutely not worth it!! We also had to eat while listening to the loud loud loud kids at other tables. We could hear their entire converestion! It is super distracting and annoying!...and we had our kids with us, ages 8 and 10 and they couldn't stand their noise either!! Awful experience and we won't be back.

Not toddler friendly ... Even though there is a kid menu, the cooking service is dangerous for toddlers. The servers are unfamiliar with providing milk in child safe cups, and do not know to avoid giving toddlers skewers or letting them cook?

Overpriced in my personal opinion. The food was good, but definitely only go for a special occasion for which you don't mind spending a fair amount of money. Service was alright during the meal, except that we ordered salads that never came. My server charged my credit card twice and when I realized I called the manager. I was told someone would call me back in a half hour, but 5 days later and no one has returned my call--so now I have to dispute it with my credit card company, which is a pain. Even though the food was good but pricey, the service is a big part why I wouldn't recommend it.

Jeremiah, our server, was excellent! The food was all delicious. A little pricey, but we didn't leave hungry.

I couldn't stand the smell of the cooking style we chose. The portions were very small for the price, not to mention the cooking time for each were much longer then what the server told us. We got the 4 course meal and the cheese and chocolate were amazing but the salad and meal itself were terrible. We went at a very slow time, yet the server was so slow, we were sitting waiting for him for so long.
It was fun &enjoyed my time
It was fun and I enjoyed my time but the service was a bit poor that could be due to location in the restaurant.
Always a hit
We had several people in our group who were celebrating special events-2 anniversaries and a college graduation so we thought that this would be a good place to celebrate. It was and when they heard about our special occasions, they went overboard to impress and please.

The concept of stewing/fondueing food is different for a restaurant but The Pot was just not my thing. The wife liked it. Food was good enough to count as a nice experience and to say it was tried but I will not be going back. All the meats were tender. The fondue seasoning for the meats and vegetables was OK but not great. Overall experience was OK, not bad but not great.
My Night at the Melting Pot
Went to the Melting Pot for my birthday dinner. I had a great time! Great atmosphere and vibe! It was an unique experience! My party and I had a fun time! Also I enjoyed the privacy within the booths! The Cheddar Cheese Fondue was my favorite!! The Chocolate Fondue with the brownies were just sinfully delicious!!!
Fun experience but a bit slow
We were celebrating a graduation and selected melting pot. Our party of 4 had a small private room that was nice, but lacked ambiance as there wasn't even background music playing. The food was good from appetizer through dessert, our server was very engaging but the service was painfully slow. A party of 14 was seated across the way after our appetizer was delivered, and they were finished and gone before our dessert was even served.

John gave us one of the best dining experiences, we've had thus far.
My birthday celebration
I've always wanted to go there but never was able to get a group together to go. So I thought for my birthday it would be the perfect occasion. it was fun. The food was good even though it took some time to figure out the menu. Even when it was explained multiple times. But it was fun and are server was great. And it was nice they accommodated our group of seven and put us close to a tv so we could watch the game. I lost my wallet but still had a good night.
Better for a small group.
We had nine people in our party. My husband and I were paying for everyone since it was my daughters graduation celebration. It was confusing to me because of the menu. Having to get three things or four things. The server was very kind and explained it to us a few times but I was confused still only because not everyone was getting the same type of dinner. Some got three and done got four courses. So, I was never able to figure out if the bill was actually correct or not. A little unsettling. So with that said, it was nothing that the server did wrong or any one at the restaurant it was just me. Everything was very good, service and food.

I was there on a recent Friday night for my daughter's birthday. She has picked this restaurant at least 5 to 6 times for her birthday. I had made reservations and we were seated quickly. I felt very rushed when the salad and the cheese fondue were brought out at the same time. The cooking process took much longer than usual. I think the burner was not on the correct setting. I asked the server twice about it. The food was good. The portions of the potatoes was much less than in the past. Our server was nice but we waited a very long time for boxes and for the bill. Our dishes were not cleared until he came to gather all of the dishes for 4 people at the same time very unprofessional and in poor taste. Overall, I feel like the prices are too high for the hassel of cooking my own food and the portions served. However, my daughter seemed to enjoy her dinner. Also, one highlight of the night was a magician who came to our table. He was good and entertaining.

A great place for a date night. Delicious food in abundance.
Always a good choice
We've been here a few times in the last few years and it is always a good place to dine. The food is delicious and the menu choices for the fondue have variety. We change it up each time we go and have never been disappointed.
Great service, could work on reservations waiting
My boyfriend and I have celebrated our anniversary at the melting pot for years. I recently became vegan and was afraid we wouldn't be able to dine at our favorite spot anymore. I called in advance and our server did everything in his power to accommodate us. I wish I remembered his name! (It was Saturday 5/7 at 7:15) My only minor complaint is that every single time I've been to the melting pot I've made a reservation and every single time we have to wait at the bench. I work in a high scale restaurant and understand how busy it can get, but at the same time I make a reservation for a reason. We travel well over an hour and would appreciate getting sat the time of our reservation.
A fun night
We brought our two kids here to celebrate one of their birthdays. They had a great time cooking their own food and trying new things. The price is a little high but the service and food quality were both high enough that we didn't mind the price for a special occasion. I don't think I'd come here for just a regular dinner out though.
Unfortunately, terrible service ruined our dining experience. The food was excellent, however, there was too long of a lag time in between courses - we also had to wave down a server multiple times for drinks.

I had confirmed with the day shift manager over the phone that my friend and I would be celebrating 2 special occasions; my birthday and her graduation from nursing school. He advised me that we would each receive a plate with strawberries and written in chocolate Happy Birthday and Congrats RN. I again confirmed the special occasions we'd be celebrating upon arriving at the restaurant with the hostess. She assured me that we would receive the plates. Our dinner service was horrible. We had a server who was training a gentleman. Every time they would come to the table they wouldn't come back for at least 10-15 minutes. We had to wait to get drinks. Then wait another 15 minutes until she came back to get our cheese fondue option. We continued to have to wait in between each course. Then upon leaving, our server never brought out either plate (the birthday or the congrats plate) to celebrate the whole reason we had come to the restaurant. My friend and I left with dissatisfied due to poor service.
We had a really good time prices too high
We were there to celebrate my daughters 21st bday. I felt bad to expect family and friends to spend 100.00 for two people.
Great Anniversary Spot
This was a wonderful choice for my boyfriend and I to celebrate our 4th Anniversary. The food was great, the staff was fantastic, and the overall atmosphere was perfect for our evening.
over priced no comp.
The experience is nice and the service was great, but the food was overpriced and there was no compensation for the power going out and delaying dinner for 45 minutes.
My fifteen year old wanted to go here for his birthday. We really liked the ambiance, the service was wonderful and the food was good. I ordered the potstickers, they were wonderful and cooked really fast. My son ordered the buffalo chicken the chicken was good, however, it took twice as long to cook versus the potstickers. The dessert was beyond wonderful!!! I would definitely go again but, with a large group or maybe just for dessert.
If you don't mind working for your meal, its good.
Very pricey for small amount of food. I'm the primary cook at home and when I go out I want to be catered to. You have to work constantly in order to eat, didn't provide the relaxation I personally was looking for. The dessert was amazing, I would go there for that again but not for a meal. Service was good. Make reservations or you might not get in.
Reservation at 7:30. Arrived at 7:20. Were seated at 7:34. At 7:44 when no one came over to serve us we got up and walked to the front hostess area and told the manager we were going to leave. She asked how come, and we told her no one has come over to serve us, she insisted we stayed and would make it right, but there was already a bad taste in our mouth, so we politely declined and went to the Cheesecake Factory.

We had a very relaxing evening with good food and great service. I would highly recommend.
Love Love Love!!
My bestfriend and I decided to try this place for the first time and it was absolutely amazing! The waiter was phenomenal, as well. The food is so good, and so is the dessert!
