The Melting Pot - OKC Ratings and Reviews

First time eating here. It is now one of my new favorite places for special occasions. The food was good (not fantastic), our waitress was very nice and seemed happy to help, but it was the concept that made it such a good time.
My only complaint (and it's a small one) was that, being our first time, we didn't realize that the wait staff was waiting for us to complete our cheese course (we got the full four course meal) to bring us our entrée. So, we just kept munching on things, waiting. When we finally told her we were done with the cheese, she then replied, "ok, I'll go get your entrée". Otherwise, I really enjoyed our experience.
One more note for anyone who is unfamiliar with downtown OKC... Bring cash! All the parking is in paid lots that only take cash. We had to hunt down an ATM machine, which caused us to be about 10 minutes late for our reservations. (We called the restaurant to let them know and they were more than happy to accommodate our oversight.)

The food is delicious. It's very expensive, but part of the cost is for the experience. Our server (I think his name was Doug?) was hilarious and very personable. I love the Melting Pot; we would go there far more often if it was more affordable!

I LOVE THE MELTING POT BUT THE SERVER I HAD WAS NOT INTO SERVING US. IT TOOK HER 15 MINUTES TO GREET US AFTER BEING TOLD 3 TIMES WE WERE GETTING A DIFFERENT SERVER NOT EVEN ASKING US IF WE WANTED A DRINK WHILE WE WERE WAITING. ON TOP OF THAT SHE SPOKE TO US AS IF SHE WAS IN A HURRY AND DID NOT SPEND ENOUGH TIME AT THE TIME PREPARING OUR COURSE.
My husband and I went to the Melting Pot ...
My husband and I went to the Melting Pot for my birthday. I expected a formal, spacious dining area. The restaurant was very closed in and not as formal as I had expected. The food is extremely overpriced and overrated. I did receive a Happy Birthday card from the staff, which was a nice gesture. However it was handmade with highlighters. Again, a super nice gesture and I was grateful they made a point to recognize our special evening--I just expected a more elegant environment for the prices and time spent there. The host seemed inexperienced. Our waiter was great about explaining the process. Other wait staff were excellent about keeping our drinks filled. The manager made a point to introduce himself and let us know if we needed him to let him know and assured us our waiter would take care of us. It was a neat experience and I am glad we went but I do not plan on going back--perhaps my expectations were just set too high.

Not enough food for the price, and we waited 30 min for our ticket, way over priced for just the experience. Would not return due to you are only paying for the experience. I wouldnt recommend this place to anyone

This has been one of our favorite places to celebrate a special occasion. It seems the menu changes a little bit each time we go but the food remains good and the environment is great for a quiet time together. On this evening, we had a particularly good waiter, Ty, who was very conversational, quick to give us service, and provided us with a wonderful evening.

I used on go to the MELTING POT every week and introduced many of my friends to the restaurant. I would still be going frequently if my health permitted. I even had my 9y/o daughters birthday party there last year. It is one of my all time favorite places to eat and highly recommend it. It's a great place to go whether for a large group or a romantic date.

We had a wonderful date night here. We did the 4 course meal and loved every bite. The bacon bree cheese is delisish. It would also be a great place to stop by for wine and dessert or wine and cheese. It took about 2 hours to eat and we were never rushed and had plenty of time to talk.
The only downfall was even after telling them we were on a date we were sat next to large table with 2 kids at it. When making the reservation next time I will request a quite area.

We had a wonderful dinning experience! We had food allergies in our group and they were more than accommodating. The menu is also clearly labeled with gluten free options and substitutions. If you go for dinner, be sure and ask for Rachel as your server!!

Food and ambiance were phenomenal. The server was sub-par, but having dined before at Melting Pot, that is definitely a very rare occasion to have that happen. The phenomenal food and intimate atmosphere made up for our server's lack of attention to our table all night.

I'd been wanting to go since my daughters and I had a girls' weekend 6 yrs ago, and didn't know we needed a reservation and the wait was 3 hrs. So now 6 yrs later, I finally got to go on our 32nd Wedding Anniversary, and it lived up to my expectations! It was a really fun, great experience!
Having an anniversary card signed by the staff, and staff members who weren't waiting on us even, come by and wish us a Happy Anniversary was a very nice & thoughtful touch!
Thank you for a great evening out that was very special!

Our server Doug provided exceptional service! This was my wife's first time at the Melting Pot and she loved it. Doug was very patient and took time to explain the menu while we ordered. He was prompt in serving our food, and made us laugh the whole night. We had a great time and definitely plan oncoming back. Thanks Doug!

I'm not a big fan of cooking my own food when I go to a restaurant, nor do I feel safe doing so. However, our server was excellent at letting us know how long the food needed to be cooked. The nice thing about is was that the food-cooking time slowed down our eating, so we took a leisurely time to complete our dinner. The Caesar salad was delicious! I also love the two types of bread served with the cheese course. The cheese needed the garlic salt, however, to improve the bland taste. And the chocolate at the ending was wonderful!

We dined for our Anniversary on a Saturday night. Place was hopping with the softball and bachelorette crowd. Upon making the reservation they asked if we wanted rose petals and candles on the table for $17, which was a nice touch. Service was very very slow. She was personable but slow. Food was okay at best.
My daughter requested to go to the Melting Pot for her 12th birthday. We had to make a last minute adjustment to our reservation, and this was easy to do, and without hassle. We arrived to her being immediately greeted, and told "Happy birthday!" The bear I ordered was waiting at our table, and we were promptly greeted by our server, DJ. He really made the night special, and was so outgoing and friendly, as well as being an excellent server.
One of the Most Enjoyable Meals I have had.
It was my first time to the Melting Pot. I had heard about it for years and had wanted to try it.
Every course was different, new on my taste-buds and exciting. Our server was excellent. I just had an overall great experience and know I will come back to enjoy the Melting Pot again.
Only one problem.
We had a great night but while we were dinning, a boy came up to us and other tables trying to sell tickets or something for his school or sport. I don't know how he got into the restaurant but I wish they would keep a closer eye on the front door so the customers aren't bothered.

We were celebrating our anniversary. In the past, when we let them know ahead of time they put us at a smaller table that was towards the back and more private. This time we were at the front at a normal table. The food and service was amazing as always. The noise level was disturbing though. There was a large group of girls celebrating a bachelorette party at the table next to us. They were very loud and their obnoxiously loud conversations were inappropriate and distasteful, especially considering there were families with children in the restaurant.

We arrived 15 minutes before or reservation and was seated within 5 minutes.
The server was great and provided great suggestions. Our meal was wonderful and very filling.
I would strongly suggest trying this place out.
