Can you say cheese!!!!

We went for our first experience here and was overall enjoyable. There is plenty of seating but we found it a bit strange that we were seated right beside a large group when there were plenty of space with personal seating areas available.

We went here to celebrate my 25th birthday. The ambiance was perfect. We had superb food and service alike! Richie was our server. He was very pleasant and never had us wait too long between courses. Jon, the assistant manager came over and even wished me a happy birthday. So hospitable! Can't wait to go back!

We went with another couple to experience what we thought would be a fun couples night. We found the atmosphere good and bad. There were private tables that looked very inviting but we were corralled to the back room and despite lots of empty table we we replace by a group of 8. It was loud and hard to converse... More

We look forward to going to the melting pot 1x a year for our anniversary because of the price, and tonight was such a disappointment we will NEVER go back! First we walk in the door and are asked if we have a reservation? Looking around we started laughing because the place was EMPTY! And we got attitude because we... More

Dirty forks , bad vegetables, poor services, long waiting between settings for food. High priced for food you get, won't be back. I hope you have better experience if you try it. Just remember that I warn you. Eddie

I look forward to returning to this restaurant on our visits to Scottsdale. The food and service is always outstanding. Daniel, the manger, stopped by several times to make sure everything was perfect. I love finishing a meal with chocolate. We were all two steps past heaven when we left.

As the Grandmother I have been excited to take my 19 year old granddaughter to the Melting Pot for months. This was my first time there, everyone one said it would be pricey but fun. The pricey part was right. It was our waitress that was the deal breaker, it seemed she wished we would have stayed home. I tried... More

This is an overpriced place with limited options and unless you like their options it is not a good place to eat. You start with melted lumpy cheese on stale bread. You are given a couple of sauces with the main course and if you don't like it too bad. The salad had two choices for dressing and then they... More

We took our 11 year old grandchildren for "happy hour" @ the bar. They have cheese and chocolate fondue, and small salads at special prices. Since we are all small eaters this combo made a perfect size meal. For each of us at a great price. Bartender was great with the kids. Good time had by all.
