i made a 6:30 reservation. We walked in at exactly 6:30 to no hostess. Stood there among about 12 other people. when the 2 hostess's came to the station they did not greet or even make eye contact with anyone. I checked in and we stood for about 15 minutes and watched someone who had a 6:45 reservation get seated before us. I was not pleased. We come all the time and have never seen such cluelessness going on.
We almost left! We finally were seated and served by Spencer who was wonderful!

I thought that my experience here was nothing less than fantastic. For dessert, we got the pure chocolate fondue and it was well worth the money. The only comment I would add was that there wasn't that much chocolate for two servings. I thought that there should've been more, however it was good nonetheless. Thank you and I will be returning.

The waiter was terrible. I had never been to a Melting Pot. He didn't explain the menu options and pressured me into the 4-course option. Also, encouraged me to order additional portions of fondue when it was clearly not needed for me, a 5 year old and 10 year old. We ended up with way too much food that we couldn't take with us. Barely explained what to do with the meat. He also recommended broth that was NOT kid friendly BUT had an up charge even though I specifically asked. So spicy. Didn't ask about our special occasion. No water refills. Didn't ask if we want a to go box. Was just trying to get the bill as high as possible instead of making sure his customers enjoyed the experience. HORRIBLE SERVICE.

We had the 4-course meal and wound up being so full that we could not finish all four courses so we had to get a card to come back for the dessert course which is fine because we loved the place and we especially loved our server Karen. She made the whole night very special since it was our first time there and we knew nothing about what to do. We celebrated both our birthdays this month and she even made that special by having a plate at the end of the evening with happy birthday in chocolate with two chocolate-covered strawberries (one for each of us) and she also sang for us when we kiddingly suggested it. The food was marvelous and the place was great. All in all a fantastic night.

We wanted to celebrate New Years with our two younger daughters (11 and 12) but not on Eve so we booked dinner at 6pm on the 1st. I was a little bit nervous because my girls don't have a very open palate but they tried everything a both voted it their new favorite place! I think the fact that you cook your own meal had a lot of appeal as well.... regardless everyone had fun and left happy.

The food was amazing. The service however was not. The waitress did not seem to care about the special occasion why we were there. We saw other wait staff engaging in conversation with their tables. Our waitress not so much.

The Melting Pot was an excellent escape from a typical restaurant scene. We arrived for a late lunch to find the place mostly empty. We were seated promptly and greeted by David, our server. David was very pleasant and very knowledgeable about his trade. A very nice wine and beer list was provided. The food was outstanding. The service was continuous and professional, but warm. I would recommend for a return trip.

We've had a variety of experiences at the Melting Pot and it's the uniqueness of the experience that keeps us coming back. Every time we've been though the service has been very slow. Even though we expect the process to take a lot longer than a normal dinner there always seems to be a struggle in getting the food out in a timely fashion and getting what we asked for. Also, a couple people at our table wanted to try the special that they had going on but some did not. They unfortunately required everyone at the table to partake in their special , instead of allowing some at the table to have the special and some to not. The portions on the special were VERY small and disappointing although the food itself was very good.

We loved our experience the first time we went. This last experience wasn't as good. 3 mistakes made during the meal, which were quickly fixed. Wrong salad and non vegetarian items brought to table. But last time we went any mistakes were apologized for and we were given something extra.

I have been to this Melting Pot multiple times. The experience has always been great. I found the nose ring on our server to be disgusting. The server placed her hand inside the bowl to check if the water was hot. I made a comment to her and she said it was ok, as she does this all the time and does not get burned. I told her I was more concerned about the germs on her hand. She brought us another pot from the table next to us. Eventually she put our pot on the table where she gave us the second pot from. There was also a lady helping out who was dressed is dress shoes. Definitely not appropriate for restaurant work, especially with regards to SAFETY.

They put us in a private room, which sounds good until you realize that you literally see absolutely nobody else. Then it becomes kinda weird.
As usual, great food with small portions of everything and that added up combine to make a surprisingly filling meal. Plan to spend some time there. Our reservation was 7:30 and we were seated right on time. We finished our meal and immediately left at about 9:45.
Great service from all staff. We come here every year for our anniversary or Valentine's Day.

Cozy atmosphere, great food, comfortable seating. Great for a date, or going out with friends. Very filling with the four course experience, I recommend splitting a 4-course between two people. We had a very friendly waitress who helped us understand the menu and made us feel comfortable by her willingness to answer any questions we may have had.

The service was excellent. Our server made us feel very welcome, and brought out our food in a timely manor. The atmosphere was very relaxing and it did not feel like we were there for 2 hours. I would recommend this restaurant if you want a fun night out with the family.

Normally we LOVE the Melting Pot and do frequent it at least six to eight times a year. Always treat my kids when they are home from college. This weekend was some type of coupon offer so amount of food was quite small and super noisy. We had a 7:30pm reservation and the hostess was frazzled with the number of people waiting. We did not get seated until after 8pm. We should never waited. Our server was terrible (never checked back w us so we were extremely thristy and she forgot to give us our salads-- always take them to go) Really going wait a long while before going back. Whole experience was BAD especially when you have to ask so many servers to help you get through a meal!
