The Melting Pot - Wilmington DE Ratings and Reviews

The waiter was nice enough but clearly got frustrated when I asked if I was really going to be charged 40$ for one cheese fondue pot. This was a surprise to me as it had never been priced this way on any of our previous visits. This frustration most definitely carried through the meal. When I asked for extra dippers for the chocolate I was told " you will get a whole second plate with your second pot of chocolate." I was less than impressed with this answer. I understand the concept of how this dining experience works having done it many times in the past and I didn't ask if I would be getting another plate with my next pot I asked for a few more to finish the pot I already had. To add insult to injury by the time he actually got the idea that I needed more both pots of chocolate were essentially ruined and they weren't that great to begin with. The amount of dippers with my cheese was lacking also and while I didn't get an argument when I requested them by the time they came out my cheese was borderline burned and so hot I couldn't eat it without burning my mouth. The restaurant itself was fine the atmosphere was in line with my expectations. The staff could have been better. Not one time did a manager stop by to check. Every other time I have eaten at a melting pot they have. This is the worst melting pot I have been to. Worse than king of Prussia, which I have heard has improved. We will not visit this location again.

we love the melting pot and go at least once a month. we were very disappointed to find they have changed the house dressing which we loved (in fact we buy a bottle to take home) to a mustard based dressing that we did not care for at all. I guess we won't be getting salads there anymore. I wish they would bring back the original house dressing that has been around for 20 years.

appetizer was by far the best part of the meal, the dessert came in a close second. the entree was sub par but may have been a bad choice on our part for the cooking style that we chose. overall great service and amazing food. will be returning

We went to celebrate my mother in law's 80th birthday. I couldn't be happier with our visit. It was our first time there and our waiter was extremely patient and helpful with selections and recommendations based on other things we ordered. The table setup keeps it personal so noise is not a problem. The food was excellent and dessert alone was worth the trip.

I thought the menu was complicated (there were 3 of them), our server was funny but not very efficient or accurate (and he was clumsy) and the seafood items were bland. I was disappointed in the overall evening experience though we made the best of it since it was a never-to-be-repeated occasion.

Great spot! It is something very different from the everyday dating scene of Fridays and Applebees. This is for the grown and sexy type of people. My fiance and I went there lat week and we felt compelled to feed each other all night. Loved It!

We had an excellent dining experience at the Melting Pot. As always, the food was delicious. The cheese and chocolate is a favorite with our group, having the special that included a salad made a nice break between courses.
I forgot our waiter's name. He worked the evening of July 13, 2016. He was a handsome young African American man who should be recognized as an asset to your organization! He was professional, engaging, knowledgeable and attentive without being overbearing.
We were there to celebrate my birthday, but I dislike fanfare and I didn't want anything extra done. The Melting Pot experience is treat enough for me. Lol. However, our waiter arranged a platter of desserts for dipping into an artistic configuration and discretely lit a candle so I could make a wish.
All in all, a wonderful experience that I recommend for a relaxing night out or a special occasion.

This was my first time there. My wife has been there before but, it has been a while. As you enter the place it was warm and confront atmosphere .
We had arrived early and asked if we could be taken in early. They accommodated us with no problem. The waiter was very friendly and helpful with explaining everything and making wonderful suggestions. He was always on point with being there , thru out the night asking if everything was ok and re- filling our drinks. If you have not been there , please allow 2 1/2 hours for everything. It is a process but , worth it. I recommend the steak lovers and the cheese cake dessert with dark chocolate. Enjoy..

Chose to go because 10% of what we spent is donated to AI duPont Children's Hospital, a worthy cause.
Had a wonderful dinner with a friend. The only downside was that the bourguignonne (oil) cooking style wasn't as good as the usual broth that we get. The oil wasn't hot enough initially and the tempura batter stuck to the sides of the pot, making it difficult to remove the battered items.
My favorite cheese appetizer is the spinach artichoke and this did not disappoint. The addition of pineapple to the chocolate fondue (I recommend the flaming turtle!) was great.
We'll go again, and get the court bouillon cooking style.

General manager was very good. Hostesses did not manage well. We made a reservation and arrived early. We're told we would have to wait, but while waiting witnessed people without reservations being seated before us. Manager jumped in to fix, but didn't know until we complained. Cheese and dessert courses were good, but main course meats were tough.

After my 2 friends helped me through a major surgery, I took them out for a thank you dinner. They (and I) were just thrilled with the whole experience. Our waiter was fabulous, the food exquisite, and the ambiance perfect for the occasion.

Server was nice and efficient. However, we requested a bit more dessert pieces since we had quite a bit of chocolate left in both of our pots (group of 5). She brought a scant amount... meaning 4 pieces of rice krispies! When paying almost $9 /person for dessert, really??
Disappointed in Reservation service
I made a reservation for my husband's birthday and when we showed up the hostesses were clueless as to where to sit us even though there were plenty of open tables and they made us wait 10 minutes before seating us all the way in a corner secluded from everyone and everything else, very uncomfortable and small table. If it wasn't for our fantastic waiter I wouldn't go back. It was disappointing making a reservation in hopes they had a good table ready and instead they treated us as if we were just a walk in and it was a bother finding us a table.
Great dinner, weak service
Dinner was great as always. Server was attentive until the main course came and then basically never came back. Several sauces needed refilling etc. and we finally got the manager's attention. Very good, but service detracted from overall experience.
Amazing as always
My girlfriend and I have become regulars to the melting pot it is always great. The staff is very good and do not keep you waiting for a thing, they are also very accommodating. I strongly recommend the brew and fondue. It is definitely a favorite of ours.

our waiter was very unhelpful. she barely stopped over to our table to ask if we need anything.
she seemed annoyed with all the questions we asked.
very disappointed with the service, but other than that, the food was OK, I think not worth the money, but OK
Melting pot for a vegetarian
The melting pot is an excellent spot for starter and dessert but if you are vegetarian the main course leaves you wanting. The set up leaves it impossible for a meat eater and non meat eater to have two separate entrees as you cook in the same pot. If this was changed i.e. two stove tops this would lead to an improved experience for the vegetarian. The Dessert is the clear winner here though, very enjoyable.
