A novelty that wears off quickly

We enjoyed coming here with new friends. The place was more crowded and noisy that we expected. The service was most helpful and sensitive to our novice approach to the fondue style. The novelty wore off early as some in our group always had others reaching to get to one of the pots. A bit... read more

The service is excellent and the food is great. However, if you are sitting in what the restaurant calls lovers lane it's one of the worst dinning experiences. It's like eating a nice dinner in a hot yoga studio. The heat back there is so overwhelming it's hard to enjoy yourself. I have been hopeful each time I have gone... More

We have been here several times but this was the first visit since I was diagnosed as a celiac. The server was extremely knowledgeable about what was safe for me and provided gluten free bread for the cheese fondue along with adjusting the meat choices to eliminate anything that might be unsafe. They even provide a separate plate of fruit... More

Not the best I have ever had. 5 people sharing raw meat in one pot, was not my idea of a good time. Every selection was a mark up price to the cost. I found the service the total pits and our server was not helpful at all.

I took my boyfriend to The Melting Pot for our anniversary in November, and then he took me for my birthday/Valentine's Day in February. We were very impressed. It is such a great choice for special occasions! Going to The Melting Pot is a very unique, interactive dining experience. We had a table in the Lovers' Lane section for our... More

My husband and I had always talked about going to The Melting Pot and finally did. We were not disappointed. They sat us in a cozy booth in lovers lane and we had a fantastic meal and the service was wonderful. The experience takes a little longer then a regular dinner out so plan for that (not a date and... More

We were part of a group of approx 16. We had a private room that could probably handle another 6-10 people. Updated lots from what I recall in the '70's with Induction cook tops for the cooking broths, cheese, and chocolate courses. Ample vegetables, breads and fruits. The meat amounts are only part fixed on what you order. Great group... More
