When arrived at 7:30PM on a Thursday evening and were seated right away (we had made reservation ahead of time). The menu was explained to us, as we had never been to a fondue type restaurant before. Our waitress, I think her name was Julia (she was also training another new hire), did an fantastic job. I was skeptical before... More

Five of us met and had a wonderful time and terrific food. We started with Swiss cheese fondue and fiesta. Personally, the Swiss is out of this world yummy. We each had a salad, cold, crisp and tasty. The main course included lobster shrimp filet chicken and veggies. Then of course the classic chocolate and turtle desserts. Service was good,... More

My party of 6 made a reservation for 9 PM on 12/31/2013, we arrived at 8:25 and were not seated until 9:45 (our entire party was there on time). While waiting to be seated there were NUMEROUS booths that were open that would accommodate our party, yet we still had to wait an additional 45 minutes after our reservations. When... More

First, the atmosphere - Dark, candles, lots of booths, tables spaced for privacy. In spite of the size, and number of guests, not very noisy at all. Next, the service - Pretty good - waitress had been there before the closing and came back. She was pretty good 'table side', but we felt a little neglected when she didn't come... More

This was the first time I ate at melting pot and wished I went elsewhere. Server was terrible. Sometimes has to ask 3 times for things. He was super slow. Plus, he even forgot things that are common to melting pot (never did see any garlic wine seasoning) Then when it was brought up he literally ignored the comment. This... More

I am no expert on fondue, but I thought it was a very fun (albeit pricey) and tasty experience. I had a Daddy/Daughter date night with a party of five. We had reservations for 7:30 on a Sunday evening, but when we showed up early, we were able to be seated within about 10 minutes. All of my girls thought... More

Online reservations for 4 at 7:00. We were seated at 7:20. Received our first course, a Swiss and Gorgonzola fondue that had a bitter wine after taste which all four agreed. 20 minutes later we received our salads. We completely exhausted our drinks, salads and fondue 30 minutes before stew pot for main course arrived. Another 20 minutes passed before... More

We went to celebrate a birthday. We made reservations for our party of nine filled out their large party agreement and showed up on time. We were taken to a room where we were offered a two table arrangement. These tables were separated by at least 5 feet. They could not sit us together. There was a large table available... More

The concept is unique, but the food is just okay. I didn't feel too great after eating there and my hair and clothes smelled like smoke. The booth we were seemed a little dirty and the decor is dark and outdated. Maybe to hide something?? It's also overpriced. I would not return.

Having had fondue in Switzerland and being one of my favorite dishes, I was excited to spend date night here. We went during a week night. The restaurant is on a first floor of a strip mall with other establishments. They do not make it too evident how to access but you get the idea looking for stairwells. There was... More
