As a first timer to fondue, this was a great experience. I had lots of questions and the server answered them pretty well. The server usally has to go far for a 20% tip however i gladly gave it to her. The food was of good quality and the flavors were amazing. Good variety with plenty of different choices. The low lighting and soft jazz music gave the restaurant a romantic feel. I will definitely be going back in the future. Price was very reasonable when comparaed to other fine dining restaurants.

Absolutely amazing meal. We were celebrating my daughter's last night visiting from out of state. The service was impeccable (thank you , Daniel), the food was incredible and the overall experience was just delightful. Such a unique way to share dinner and conversation. We'll sneak back just for the chocolate dessert fondue very soon!

Although the melting pot is quite expensive, it is worth the money for a special occasion or date. The food is very tasty and the waiter did a great job of explaining. This is a 4 course resturaunt. Its not fast, it is meant to be enjoyed.

Overall, very nice; great food and good service. Open Table corrected a problem claiming I had no showed for the reservation; I cleared this up through proof of a receipt showing I had spent about $120 including tip.

Food was great, I believe the service can make or breaks a meal and our service wasn't that outstanding. She was very slow and didn't take care of us that well. We had to request for our drinks to be refilled and she didn't help others get to know how the menu worked.

My server was subpar. I've been to this Melting Pot quite a few times and every time I've had an awesome experience except for this time. I brought two friends who had never been there and expected our server to explain the process just as they had done every time I had attended before. She seemed unenthused. She wasn't friendly or inviting. She reccomended a cheese for us and it was terrible. I don't think it was made correctly as it tasted only of wine. I was embarrassed because I had talked it up so much to my friends and then we were all let down.

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.
