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!

This is a great place for a group of people to share a meal. We've been back multiple times, mostly for special events or to spend quality time with friends that we want to spend a lot of with with. I will say that is A LOT on the pricey side and dedicate at least 2-3 hours to hang out, eat and talk, but the dining experience provides a very personal atmosphere amongst those who are eating/ fondue-ing together. For me, the price is worth the hangout and not the food.

First time at Melting Pot. Very fun, wait staff was very organized and willing to help with our questions. We had a Groupon, which helped with the first time check. Not good for screaming children, when it is an adult menu.

We have been too this melting pot multiple times and love it everytime!
The staff remembers you when you come back.
They are always very helpful and friendly.
The food is delicious.
It is a longer dining experience than most, but that's what makes it great!
Whether it's a date night, anniversary, or just because, it's a great choice.
You can tell that the owner and management put a lot of compassion and hard work into this dining experience.
P.S. You cook your own meal, so if that's not what you are looking for I would look else where and then come here for delicious drinks and desert!

Great experience at the melting pot. Three of the four had not been there before and it was definitely enjoyed. Service was good and the whole process was explained thoroughly which made the dinner a success. Will be returning!

Very disappointed in our last visit. Came with a party of 6 so gratuity was already included at 19%. End of the night they doubled it - and had to chase down someone to have fixed. Waiter never appeared again. Service was awful. He put in minimum effort and never came back to check on us or provide refills. Quality has definitely declined in the last few visits. You can tell they are no longer maintaining the place - it's becoming dirty and run down. Table warmers weren't working, there were utensils and garbage on the floors. This used to be a great place to go, but on a Friday night there were so many empty tables - which is odd for such a busy shopping area.

My husband and I had dinner Friday night for the first time at Melting Pot. We really enjoyed the privacy and the quiet of the restaurant. The food was very good but the meat could have used some additional seasoning. The wait staff was excellent and we look forward to our next visit.

If it wasn't for the awesome Groupon deal we would have all been very disappointed on spending the full $190 on dinner. Our waitress was very nice but way overboooked, barely saw her. We got our cheese fondue and ate it completely by the time our drinks that we ordered came outout, also had to ask for ice for our gin and tonic as it had obviously been sitting around after they made it and ice had melted in. Asked the bartender for limes and olives with our drinks/ martinis, never came. Waitress forgot our 4th plate for fondue so my husband and I had to share. Asked the manager ( I assume, he was wearing some kind of sports Jersey) for more veggies to cook for dinner out came a bowl with unwashed mushrooms- you know, with the black fuzzy stuff that are on them in the store package. Gross! Our husbands had to go to the bar to order another drink, since no one came back to our table. The only perk was our very nice waitress, not her fault management overbooked her. Same night my cousins went to the Lyndhurst location and had a great experience. Wont be back to the rocky river one ever again.

We celebrated our 18th wedding anniversary there. The food was excellent! We enjoyed every bite. Our server Karen was awesome, she explained everything wonderful and made our first time experience awesome! We will be back.

The restaurant was beautiful. Our server was very friendly. I knew it would be expensive, but was still a bit surprised by the bill. The portions were also pretty small. My husband left still hungry after spending 140. The food did taste wonderful. I'm glad we tried it, but I don't think we'll be making this a regular place.

David was a wonderful server. He was very attentive to our needs and he checked in with us just the right amount to be helpful, but never too much. We will certainly be back to this restaurant again due and request David.

the food was great! I feel the server explained everything really well. they also were very good about giving some special treatment to the birthday girl:) my sister was turning 50 and they brought over a plate with a chocolate covered strawberry and sparklers and written on the plate it said happy 21st birthday! we all just loved it:) the only thing that i would change is they had are table of 7 set up right next to a couple that looked like they were having a romantic dinner.

My daughter and I celebrated her 12th birthday on July 30, 2016. We've visited before, but this was by far the best visit. Our server Julie was fast, efficient, KIND, and helpful throughout our entire meal. Our food came at a great pace, and we had wonderful conversation while we were waiting, cooking, etc. Julie even put a sparkler on our dessert tray. She wished my daughter happy birthday more than once, and each time it made her smile. As we were walking out, my daughter said she wants this to be her new birthday tradition. I guess she's giving you an A+ rating too! Thank you for a great celebration.

My wife and I have always enjoyed eating here. This time we were introduced to a different area of the restaurant and were very surprised. There are booths that are intimately set for the couples to have privacy while enjoying the great food. This has become a favorite destination for us.

Service was quite terrible. Have been there a few times before and it wasn't bad but we were celebrating a birthday and the waitress forgot about it and forgot to give us silverware, took such a long time to bring our food out that a different waiter came over to give us our food. It was absolutely rediculous. They brought out the wrong food when they finally brought it out. Then they brought us the check and over charged us!!! Unbelievable!!!
