The Melting Pot Ratings and Reviews

Our food was good and our server did a great job. I have kids and do not dislike children but was disappointed that there were so many young children around us. We were looking forward to a quiet relaxed dinner but the noise level was higher than expected. The hostess initially tried to seat us next to a booth with a crying baby and when we declined that table the head hostess huffed like we were being unreasonable. I understand you cannot control guests bringing in young children in but if another guest coming in to this type of restaurant would prefer not to sit next to small children it should not be an issue. In the future we will make reservations for later in the evening hoping the children will be at home fast asleep, not in the booth behind us playing noisy video games and bouncing the booth.

Terrible service. Our party of 4 each ordered the 4-course meal with an appetizer. The waiter forgot our appetizer and then forgot our salads. After waiting 15 minutes for drink refills, I had to go to the bar myself to get a drink.
The assistant manager looked shocked when we complained to him. He offered to take 20% off our bill. Will not go back and do not recommend to others.

I was disappointed that I had made a reservation almost a week ahead of time and was made to wait almost 20 minutes when I arrived on time. It then took almost 30 minutes to simply get the first course- we were VERY HUNGRY since we'd saved our appetite for one of our favorite meals! The food, however, never disappoints and overshadows the slow service. It took us 3 hours to get out of the place once we got there but we enjoyed every bite we took!

It was ok...good food but loud depending on where you sit. NOT VERY romantic due to the foot traffic and noise. Waiter disappeared for about 20 mins, but the next waitress in passing was more than willing to help. Waiter splilled a glass of champagne, but other staff appeared very quickly to replenish. .

For our first official date night as new parents, my wife and I choose the Melting Pot at the last minute due to a logistical challenge trying to get to South St. Louis. We were not disappointed. We were promptly greeted and sat. The server, Justin, was perfect for us. Good humor, very knowledgable about the product and an all around great host. We enjoyed our food choices, drink selection and even dessert. Not bad for a $100 meal for two. We will certainly return at some point to take in the experience again.

The service was the most disappointing part. Our server took half an hour to come back after each time she said, "I'll be right back". This was not an experience that was worth $100. The food itself was alright but the oil section was a little disappointing. I asked to have my mushroom-containing foods traded for something else and they were brought to me again. I used to love the melting pot but I don't think I'll come back again.

We were celebrating our 10 year anniversary at one of our favorite places. We hadn't been in a while and they are still GREAT. Our server was wonderful! The owner stopped by to make sure we were enjoying our experience and they gave us complimentary champagne for our anniversary.

Our experience at the melting pot was an odd one. You could tell that the servers where running around short handed. Many of the tables around us were in and out before we got our 2nd course. With that being said, our server and manager made our experience great and made up for it. We made reservations for 7:15 and left at 10:45. They did everything in their power to make up for the long time. I went in with the understanding it was Fondue and it would take a long time. Even with the long waits in between meals I would HIGHLY recommend going here. In all honesty, the long time allowed us to have more cocktails.

My wife and I had an excellent time here, as always. The only complaint I can really make is that the gentleman seated next to us was very loud and very vocal in his complaints, but that's not really the restaurant's fault!

Our table was in the backroom. Our dining experience was over 3 and one-half hours. William, our wiater, blamed it on the kitchen. When we asked to speak to the owner, he blamed it on the hostesses giving William too many tables. We had to visit the bar to refill our own teas and Shirley Temples. We had to visit the bar to ask them to uncork the wine we brought, too. We were only brought one set of sauces with our main course. We asked another waiter who was serving the group of 20 nearby to bring it. William finally brought our extra sauces more than 30 minutes later; he did not notice we already had them. Our dessert fondue was brought more than 30 minutes after we finished dining. Our dinner dishes were still on the table. We were brought one of the wrong dessert fondues. Another waiter took over, cleared the table, got the right fondue, and flambed them. All in all, not a good experience with no one, even the owner, taking responsibility. The owner did offer to buy us cocktails at the end of our meal, though. Since we brought our own, we declined. What a shame he didn't notice!

Me and my husband went there for our wedding anniversary. The food was great as well as the service. Very quite and romantic. The food was pricey for the amount you got. But it was very good. We will definitely be going back.

Katie is AMAZING, we love her every time she waits on us!!! One suggestion, our 3 children were with us and both my husband and myself misinterpreted the children's pricing. We understood the entree to be 9.95 and "if" you make it a combo by adding cheese and dessert it is then 13.95, not that you add the two prices together. You can imagine the look on our faces when we got our bill. However Katie went above and beyond to apologize and aid in our misunderstanding!! I will be back and we will also bring our kids back... this place is 5 stars every visit!!

When we arrived we were told it would be about a 20 minute wait. We went straight to the bar to grab a drink. Christopher, the bartender, never greeted us or asked if we would like anything in the whole 20 minutes we sat at the bar waiting to order. He was more worried about chatting it up with his coworkers. This was irritating and didn't start our visit the way I had hoped. Once we were seated our experience changed for the better. It was our first time and we weren't quite sure how it worked. Candyce was extremely nice and went above and beyond to give us great service! She explained everything so well and was very nice!
