Wow! Incredible food and a true dining experience. The staff is amazing! Very attentive and friendly. The price was fair for a four course meal.

Really pleased after our first visit to this restaurant with my family. A great selection of fondues, starting with cheese, entrée and chocolate to finish. We had two different cheese fondues followed by two different chocolate fondues as we were not too hungry. There was so much food for the four of us we couldn't finish. We had great service... More

We have been to this restaurant a half-dozen times, and have never been let down by the service of the waiting staff or the quality and taste of the food. This restaurant is our kids' favorite place to eat - it's fun, it tastes good, and it keeps them occupied. :) However, I do have to criticize the attitude of... More

Awesome Food! Great variety of meats dips and awesome dessert , chocolate fondues. Even if you are celiac you can eat almost everything, except for a few items. They will advice you how not to contaminate the fondues. Or like we did the people who were celiac used the pots first before anything with gluten went into the pot. It... More

We were politely guided to a nice booth in a separate ante-room. The music was a bit contemporary but not too loud as is often the case in restaurants. All staff were polite, accommodating and pleasant. Chees fondue was $9 per person and included a modest pot of very tasty cheese mix for the two of us. The breads were... More

I was a little worried going into the Melting Pot as I had read many negative reviews. Our experience tonight was excellent. We had been able to get a last minute reservation. When we got there, we were greeted/welcomed by the front staff and taken to a table. Our waitress came very quickly and took our drink orders. She was... More

I have gone to the Melting Pot in Edmonton many times. It is a great place for an anniversary or date night with your significant other, a big group of friends or a night out with the ladies. The food is always amazing. It is awesome to see which Big Night out is on the menu as it is fun... More

If you want to try something very different, Melting Pot is a must. It's a 2-3 hour evening and if you have a personable waitress like we did, the whole event was awesome! She was funny, informative and made the experience wonderful. You get what you put into it... don't be closed minded and give it a try. Great flavors... More

We went here for a dinner because we had heard how wonderful it was. We'll never go back. We were prepared for the high price but not for the small amount of mediocre food. We are not big people but a few pieces of meat, veggies and fruit and 2 drinks for over $150.00 plus tip, never again.

The Melting pot is a very unique and excellent experience. I didnt know what to expect, but it was awesome. Everything you eat, from appies, meal and desert is done in a fondue pot, at your table by yourself. It is expertly explained by the great server. It is expensive, but a great to try for a special occasion. Highly... More
