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.

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!

The food, as always, was delicious at the Melting Pot. Unfortunately our server was too new for a busy night (80s night), so our 4-person, 4-course meal took 3 hours. Usually it takes about 2. He was very nice and accommodating; his manager should just not have had him handling that many tables yet.

Food was good, but waiter was not that great. He would disappear for long periods of time. We came for the eighty's night. My girlfriend asked for sweetener for her tea and he never brought it. She had to get up and go find some. He brought out our dessert and said he was bringing us another plate since there were three of us, but he never did. When we were ready for our check, it took forever to get it. Then the waiter never came back over to get it. Thankfully we were able to give it to a waitress up front since we paid with cash. We probably won't be back to this location.

This was by far the best dining experience I've ever had. I can't say enough good things about this place. I have already recommended it to two different people that plan on going. Thank you for making my first wedding anniversary dinner perfect!

Our family went to the Melting Pot to celebrate my 60th birthday. It was the most peaceful dinner I remember every having. Many different choices to choose from. No rush to get through the meal. This was so enjoyable. I will keep the Melting Pot on our celebration list for sure.

We had a great first experience at the melting pot. The service was efficient and friendly! Good explanation of the items offered. It was a little pricey but we weren't going out to save money that night and had it all:-). Great options to tailor the menu to meet your finances. We will definitely be back!

An awesome experience which I will definitely return to enjoy again. Though the prices may seem a bit high, they're well worth it. The fondue is amazing and the items to coat are just as wonderful. They're simple things like vegetables, meat, bread, and fruit, but that's all it needs to be. There is no need for overly complex items to coat, the fondue itself is the center piece. The rich cheeses and delicious ingredients mix so wonderfully that they themselves are the meal and the items are the extras. Honestly a truly unique dining experience and one that I will want to enjoy at least once more in my life time, if not many times more.
