The Melting Pot - San Antonio Ratings and Reviews

Delicious food and excellent service but be prepared for the table of people who think they're the only ones celebrating an occasion and the restaurant won't tell them to stop shouting (literally) over each other. It's been 20 years since my last visit and will probably be a long time before I return.

My daughter wanted to check this place out for her 15th birthday. We had a GREAT time, and Nikki, our watresss, was phenomenal! We will definitely come back for another fun date/occasion.

Our experience dining at the Melting Pot was great, our server was polite and professional, we were celebrating my wife's birthday. We ordered the 3 course meal which was great, the only issue i have are the portions of food, I appreciate the quality of the food, but I feel the quantities of portions of food on the main entrees could be better, other than that our experience dining was great.

Went on May 4th on "May the Forks Be With You" night...very cool idea. "Normal" nights are just as impressive across the board: service, food, ambiance...ask for Matthews section...he takes care of his people!!
Its all about the experience
This was our Silver Anniversary, so we wanted something special. The price may seem scary for the budget conscious, but you're buying more than a meal, you're experiencing an event. From cocktail and appetizer selection, through the meal, and into dessert, it is the literal sharing of the meal that makes this a worthy evening. Our server, Annie, was a confident tour guide, helping us navigate our way through the evening. What could have been more daunting, she made seamless. We'll likely go again for our next celebratory event.
Romantic/Fondue and dessert is amazing!
The fondue was great but boiling meat not my thing! They started with the cheese fondue which was delicious and then moved to a salad. When the meat was brought out it was raw on a plate. You have to boil it and cook it for 2 minutes. I have to say I like my meat grilled or seared but not boiled unless it is a soup. We liked that we experienced it but if you like meat (not boiled) it won't be for you unless you go for cocktails, fondue and dessert! The service was awesome and they even seated us earlier than the reservation.
Great Prom date spot
Went here as a pre prom date and was not disappointed. The waitress was extremely friendly and helpful. She steered us along the best path making plenty of suggestions and giving helpful information. On the expensive side though so its not the type of place you would just go for any occasion. Definitely recommend it as something new and fun to do.
Great Place for Dates
I have been here twice and always get great service. It is a place to get to know someone and you can make the fondue very fun my dipping and dropping it lol. It's a joyful place with a great vibe. If you've never been to the 2 for $80 because you get a variety of meats. I'm definitely going again.
Great!! Even with dietary restrictions!!
My husband and I ate here for the first time and LOVED it!! I have celiac disease so am gluten free, and he is not. We had reviewed the menu beforehand to ensure I could eat, and were happily surprised. The waiter and staff were very accommodating and knowledgable about my special needs and took extra special precautions to prevent any cross contamination with gluten. Had a great experience, enjoyed the food (more than the alcoholic beverages) and will certainly go again!!
Celebrated our 13th anniversary
HonestlY I had my doubts, but as the evening progressed I was amazed! The restaurant was clean and quiet, probably not the place for babies, or small children. But perfect for a quiet date night. The food was spectacular, the waitress did a wonderful job explaining how things worked. She was the perfect waitress. Some waiters tend to hover, or ignore you. She was the perfect between. Not to intrusive, but she kept our glasses full! Would definitely recommend to anyone, and will certainly be coming back!

We always love MP. Our waiter was excellent, recognized that we had been there before, and helped us get creative. Great night!
Its a unique dining experience Good for special occasions. Food was also good.
Food was fantastic, but pricey. Kinda noisy with a lot of little kids. Maybe it would be quieter after 7. Would have preferred more intimate seating, but then again I didn't ask.

This was iur first time. I took my husband for his birthday and they had a birthday card, signed by all the staff, waiting. It was a nice surprise. Our server was very knowledgeable, experienced, helpful & friendly. We didn't know what to expect but the food was wonderful.

Great place to go for a different dining experience. The waitstaff was very helpful and professional. It was my teenage son's first time to the restaurant and he really enjoyed himself. I definitely will come back again for a meal or to enjoy the chocolate fondue
Great for Dessert and Drinks
The food isn't really worth going for, but it is a fun experience to try once. The chocolate fondue and drinks are well worth it though. I highly recommend this place for drinks and desserts.
Melting Pot Our Family Special Occasion favorite
Our grown kids feel like family meals are special when we go to the Melting Pot. Gathering around the fondue pot is fun and my husband likes the time we spend negotiating a dessert or a cooking style. If you get confused by many choices its a good idea to look up the menu and study it a little before you go. The cocktails are quite good. The price can be more than the usual family meal out....I joined the club fondue so I get notices on special events and menus. Groupons can also help out. Its worth it because the atmosphere and the food and service are superior. I do not particularly recommend the meting pot for folks in a hurry or with young children.

The Melting Pot was an awesome experience for me. It was my birthday and I wanted to celebrate somewhere that I had never dined! The food was fabulous, the wait staff was amazing and catered to my gluten issues. The overall experience was amazing!
We have always found the Melting Pot more than satisfying.
My husband and I took my grand daughter and a friend for her 16th birthday. I purchased the birthday package which included a professional photo at the table delivered with a Melting Pot frame. I especially wanted this for the memory of her 16th birthday. I relayed this to our waiter and reminded him later. We never got the picture. It is a fun experience and we enjoy going on special occasions.
Delicious & decadent evening out!
Wonderful atmosphere, food & service! We will definitely come again soon :)
This was my first time to this specific Melting Pot, but it never disappoints.
Meat was not great quality based on passed experiences
Not our best visit here
My boyfriend and I received an email for a $29.16 per person 4-course special for the leap year and decided to make a date night out of it. Upon arriving at the restaurant and being seated, we were told the deal was only good for a defined main course which we didn't want. Ultimately we decided to stay as we were looking forward to tonight, so we ended up paying full price. The food was good (as we remember it from previous visits) but the service was lacking enthusiasm and the hostesses were rude and inattentive. This was probably our worst experience at the Melting Pot, which is a shame since it is usually enjoyable.
This was our 2nd time here.. i don't remember how the 1st time was.. this time we bought 2 couples with us.. experience and service was excellent our server Lacee was awesome.. she answer any questions we had, with drinks and food.. had a fun experience cant wait to come back :)
