My experience at this restaurant was great!
My date and I ordered the suggested menu - 4 course with wine pairings.
Every course was different and delicious.
One of our protein orders came out of the kitchen incorrect.
The waiter noticed immediately and replaced it.
Overall, it was a great dining experience.

Great service, "ok" food. Spent a couple hundred dollars for the private dining package. Nothing private about it. We shared a table with another couple, there was only a partition to separate us. Actually had to whisper (and so did the other couple) so that you wouldn't interrupt other diners experience. There would have been more exclusion on the main dining floor. The table was so small that we couldn't have a bouquet of flowers (that came with the package) on the table. Our server had to hold them in the back room because we had no place to set them down. Although the service was good, food was decent I won't be returning. They completely ripped us off with that package.

We had a great time with the family at Melting Pot! The fondue is fun and a conversation starter. Of course, the cheese and chocolate can't compare to anything else! I could just go for the cheese! And the chocolate - lol!

This was my first time to The Melting Pot. Everyone has always raved about it, so I had high expectations. Service was ok - the waiter seemed uncomfortable & tense with our group. The cheese was cold & we continued to request the heat be turned up. Overall - the ambiance was what we paid for.

When you are seated closest to the kitchen doors, the setting of a nice & private Melting Pot experience goes out the window. Also, when the managers all hang out near said kitchen doors and your table, you feel as though you have eyes on you throughout your dinner. Not a great evening, but a nice one.

I really like the melting pot but this last visit you can definitely tell prices are racked up for smaller portions and low quality meat. Cheese was amazing but got very little vegetables (very small cuts of celery). The salad was underwhelming, it was on a bed of baby spinach instead of mixed greens as it used to be. The chicken was rubbery, the kind you would expect to buy from Perdue or Great Value at Walmart, shrimp and lobster were great. Chocolate was the best part of the experience. I'll still go back but know how to save a few bucks.

So So close to an outstanding dining experience. We requested a Gluten Free serving since my wife has Celiacs. We received a small portion of veggies in a 2x2 ramekin dish. We asked for some extra veggies and they never showed up. The cook surface were stained with old burned on foods/sauces. The aluminum pots were too hot to manipulate. That's the bad, the good is that the food is very good, not plentiful, but good. Personally suggest the Savory Thai for the entree.

I take my girlfriend here pretty often for dates or just to getaway from work. Everytime we come we are always treated amazingly and the waiter/waitress are always so attentive. The food is delicious and leaves us full everytime. The Melting Pot is just a one of a kind place and my girlfriend and I will continue coming here.

The food was good but a bit pricey. I enjoyed the cheese fondue and chocolate fondue, but I really disliked having to cook my own main course. For $50 a plate, I don't want to have to do that. The waiter was also a bit clumsy, though nice. I will only return for the chocolate fondue in the future.

Cheese and chocolate what's not to love! I'm ready to go back and try my second choice options! Also I would schedule through open table, when I called they had late reservations only, open table had a more up to date list.

Delicious! Love the pace of the meal. At first, I thought it was going to be slow because I was so hungry, but it was the perfect pace to enjoy the food, feel full, and still have an enjoyable conversation. Can't wait to go back!

Phenomenal experience...great food, outstanding service. My only 2 complaints: lighting was extremely poor (like sitting in the dark), and smoke/steam from the boiling pots (actually had us both coughing) because there weren't any vents.

This was my 2nd time at this restaurant but this time I Made a reservation for my fiancé who had been wanted to try it. When I arrived the table was not ready and they made us wait 20 mins. Sat at the bar and got 2 drinks and when we went to pay them the machine did not work, causing to swipe card several times and we had to check with the bank to not get charged for every swipe. Finally sat down at a cozy table. The waiter was nice and made suggestions. the appetizer was great but the meat in the main course was tasteless! Meat cooked in water with a touch of flavor just isn't good. The dessert was great so props for that, but who doesn't like melted chocolate and fruit. The restaurant smelled TERRIBLE! Like old carpet and dirty feet. Overall not a pleasant experience and I will not return.

Unfortunately, old style sauces and too little cheese in that course with sadly small bread cubes. DITTO, the desert cakelettes.
This was not the exciting, culinary treat that I'd so looked forward to having on my birthday!

I had a fun experience here at the melting pot. I wish the portion size was a lot bigger for the price. The menu is a bit confusing but our server explained each option adequately. I wasn't fond of the smell of the place and how dark it was. Overall its more of the experience is worth bragging about.

We celebrated my daughter's birthday there and had a fabulous time! Selection of food is great and their variety of dipping sauces are delicious. We had cheese fondue, salads, lobster, scallops, wine and cocktails. Very elegant yet cozy and fun.

I am sure our waiter remembers our surprise when we learned that we would be cooking our meal at our table. I wasn't sure about boiling meat vs grilled. We had no idea how a meal was prepared, although we have been to the restaurant for dessert dipping. It was our 55th anniversary so getting geared up for a meal that would be brought out already prepared and presented was what we had in mind. I must say our waiter was great, he made sure we understood the menu, etc.

The Melting Pot is a fantastic place to go for special occasions. My wife and I just went there for our 13th year anniversary, the waitress asked us our occasion for coming out and later on the manager came out and wished us a happy anniversary. It's a very nice change from the normal restaurant because it's an interactive experience that takes longer than just sitting down, ordering and eating. This gives you time to enjoy the company you're with and get into a deep conversation. The quality of the food is amazing looking, it has to be because it's served raw so you'd be able to tell if it wasn't of best quality or old. The waitress we had was friendly, attentive and knowledgeable.

My sister & I went for Restaurant Week. Our waiter was very knowledgeable and easy to talk to. He explained every cooking style to us in detail so that we could make the right decision as to what we wanted. The food was excellent. We will definitely be back. Thank you for a wonderful evening.
