The Melting Pot - St Petersburg Ratings and Reviews
Our server, Ryan, was fantastic! My six year old daughter was especially excited about the cheese fondue (cheese is her favorite food) but when she saw Ryan put the cracked pepper into the cheese, she wouldn't try it. Ryan noticed this and brought out a special fondue pot of cheese without pepper just for her. She loved it and we greatly appreciated that Ryan genuinely wanted ALL of his guests to have a great experience! Everything was wonderful, but Ryan made the evening truly fantastic!
All service great, manager very nice! The 2 hostesses that were on shift this night were not the image I've seen before at melting pot. Not very welcoming, complained loud enough for customers to hear, and always leaning and either on phone or computer. Were frequent diners at melting pot, if this has been my first trip,y first impression wouldn't have been very good!
The service xouldnt of been better. Waiter was helpful and knowledgeable with the menu. Also im a larger client it was an anniversary they had a booth for me with the roses. When I got their I requested a table. The front desk girl changed everything with a smile. . greatly appreciated.
I am form Boston, but my daughter goes to school in St. Petersburg. This was the second time we visited this Melting Pot (upon her special request) - this time to celebrate her 21st birthday. It seems no matter where the Melting Pot is - and I ahve been to several different ones in several different states and cities - the experience is always consistent: Great food, great service and always a fun time!! I like that they can accommodate a large party or a romantic candlelit dinner for 2. Either way, dining at the Melting Pot makes every situation feel special.
Went for valentines just the 2 of us got a very intimate table which was great our waitress was very informative and attentive . We went for cheese chocolate and wine and bill was $80 kind of pricey but was worth it for the occasion just not a everyday kind of place to pricey for that
Our food was very good as we expected from the melting pot. Our server was good, but they needed more waitresses to handle the volume of customers that night. We did not get new drinks until the end of the meal, and someone kept coming by to see what stage we were at in the meal, which made me feel they were rushing us to get the table for the next reservation. We also still had to wait w reservations as did many other people.
This location was great for our company Christmas party. I came back last week for a post Valentine's dinner. It was awesome. Food was great. The new grilling style was great! Colin was great setting up both reservations. Tim I believe that was his name who served us was totally awesome and a joy! Left very happy and very full!
Our server, Rob, was amazing! He was patient, knowledgeable, and had a good sense of humor.
Our dinner was fairly priced for the 4 course dinner we enjoyed. With the private booths we were able to enjoy one another's company and conversation.
Not up to the standard set by other Melting Pot locations.
The biggest issue is they were understaffed. There was an incredibly long wait, even with reservations, but multiple tables open and empty. Arrived over an hour early for my reservation and STILL was seated after the reservation time. Just poorly run.
Our server was excellent.He was knowledgable and as attentive as possible but was running the whole time.
The food was just ok, again not up to par. The cheese never got warm enough, despite server adjustments, yet it was very thin- barely attaching to the food. Almost watery. But it was tasty and plentiful.
The main course was tasty and similar to other locations. Actually, I ordered the French Quarter and I felt it was seasoned better than other locations. The Cajun seasonings stuck to the meat and added great flavor.
The pot was crowded with four of us cooking at once. It was so late by the time we received our entrees we all just wanted it cooked and done so we could get dessert and leave. It made it hard to retrieve the food and took longer to cook as the pot again wasn't terribly hot.
Chocolate was delicious and presented well by the server - using flambé to toast the marshmallow included. But again, it wasn't warm enough - even trying to use the sides and bottom.
Portion size on cheese and chocolate was just right and considered generous compared to other locations. But this just didn't make up for the way the restaurant was run. We didn't leave until almost 11pm after arriving at 7pm - just too long even though I typically enjoy the leisurely pace of The Melting Pot.
Oh and parking? Nightmare. Lot is too small and overflow lot isn't well marked (ok to park in spaces marked reserved? No clue. But if not very little parking in that lot too).
Don't think I'd return to this location. Spent $250 for 4 of us on a very mediocre experience at best.
This was our first time at The Melting Pot and we were celebrating my Daughter's 19th Birthday. It was a Truly Wonderful and Amazing experience. The service was GREAT and the food was AWESOME. It was a little pricey, but it was worth every penny. I can't wait to do back for date night.
I have made at least half a dozen reservations for this melting pot in the past and I have never been seated on time. I show up on time and I always have to wait for at least 15 minutes for them to "clear a table," as if the reservation didn't indicate that I was coming (?). Once we were finally seated (this time it was a 25 minute wait), it took 20 more minutes just to get our drinks. I love the Melting Pot, but I have no reason to think that a reservation makes any difference, and service is just poorly managed.
Was very disappointed with this experience. It has been several years since we've been to a Melting Pot and were very much looking forward to it. The portions were crazy small and the wait between courses was extreme. We will never be back and would not recommend.
Took my two children for something different. Chose to do the cheese and chocolate fondues as the meat was too expensive. The cheese was nothing special and the bread to dip was horrible. The other pieces of apple and veggies was a small portion. My children chose milk and white chocolate. The milk chocolate was great but the white was disgusting. Looked like thick breast milk, which was not appealing. Again the sides to dip were small portioned.
