The Melting Pot - San Antonio Ratings and Reviews

We hadn't been for a while and wanted something different for my daughter-in-law's BD. We had a group of 6 which gave us 2 pot options. We selected the 4 course which was too much food for us, but wanted the experience. Everyone had a great time. Food was quick to come and staff was friendly and attentive. Be prepared that this isn't a quick meal. We did find that you could have some of the options as stand alone which I wasn't aware. You can just come in for the cheese fondue and drinks or the dessert fondue as well.

My wife and I visited the melting pot for our 10th anniversary. Everything was delicious and I would give 5 stars all around except that near the end of our meal our waiter started taking way too long to bring our dessert and forgot that we ordered coffee.

Food, as always, was fantastic, my husband and I ate so much, the servers tho leave some to be desired. This visit the male server would not listen or take any orders from my husband, last time with a female server, she refused to listen or take orders from me, so this seems to be an ongoing issue. Overall was fun and enjoyable

A place suitable for a birthday celebration or a quiet, intimate dinner. The food is cooked to satisfaction, because you are the cook. They have multiple fondue choices for all food courses. A great evening spent in a slowly paced meal.

It was my 22nd birthday on Halloween. I had a reservation and everything went smoothly. After ordering our food, it took about 20-30 minutes in between each of the 4 courses to receive the next course. The reservation was at 6pm, we were seated at about 6:30pm (others arrived late, not the fault of the restaurant or hostess), and we left a little after 9:30pm. We were absolutely not planning nor expecting to get out so late with how few people were inside seated and coming in. We were never told why the waiter had been taking so long and forgetting things like drinks besides blaming it on the food not coming out on time. Other waiters were passing our table numerous times, so it makes me doubtful that the food was the real issue. My mom asked the waiter if there was anything special they did for birthdays, and the waiter said he would arrange it after dessert. Instead of doing that, he told a different waiter to give us our check and we never saw our original waiter. Our waiter told us he had been a waiter for quite some time in general at different places for years, but the service did not demonstrate the experience nor the consideration. Either have less important tasks assigned to him while he should be waiting his tables, or provide general new staff longer and personalized training. The food was delicious. Thank you for being open and slow on my birthday. I will come back, but it will take a few years for that location in my book.

Was disappointed in the Halloween kid-friendly lunch. Was seated in an isolated table...the servers (that we saw) did not have on costumes...thought it was going to be more of a Halloween party feel. Would have loved Halloween decorations and Halloween songs. They did give children a treat bag with some candy...but overall...very disappointing...not at all what it was advertised to be.

I added the extra experience of rosebuds and a photo which was just perfect for the occassion. Even though we were almost 1/2 hour late to our reservation due to traffic, I called and they eased my mind all was fine. and it was!

We went for my son's birthday as our kids have a lot of fun with the whole cook your own food thing. Food was good but I feel is way overpriced for what you get and not many options to make it more affordable. Also would have expected much better service for what we paid. For these prices I would have expected our waiter to come by our table much more often to clear away plates, keep the table clean, and keep our drinks filled.

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!
