Description: The Melting Pot Restaurant is where fun is cooked up fondue style. Romantic for Couples and Great in a Group. Our Ahwatukee restaurant is easily accessible from I-10. Take the "E Ray Road" exit off the I-10 and travel 2 miles west into the Ahwatukee Foothills. The modern yet warm casually elegant atmosphere sets the mood for a relaxing evening. The leisurely paced four-course experience begins with a cheese fondue prepared table side. A fresh salad follows while your entrée pot heats up. You’ll simmer a variety of tantalizing meats, seafood and vegetables. Each morsel is hot, fresh and delicious and all entrées are accompanied by an array of dipping sauces to add to the flavorful fun. Chocolate fondue is the finale, all served with decadent dippers. Most make reservations for the four-course dining experience but more than a few have stopped by to satisfy that cheese fondue or chocolate craving. Hand crafted cocktails and great wine list.

Ok so the 4 goes to the regular menu. The courses can add up fast! But they are great and tied together to the atmosphere, it's hard to get over it! We go there EVERY Friday, it's our end of the week spot. I recommend visiting during the happy hour for $4.95 cheese or chocolate as well as drinks, hard... More

Eating at this restaurant was a great dinning experience. Our server, Angie, made us feel at home. We had the 4 course meal. Two different cheese fondues started off the evening. We then had our salads, after which the main courses were served with 2 different cooking broths. The dessert was the high point of the meal with different chocolate... More

It was enjoyable and affordable for what we received. Great environment for a moderate paced meal. No rush, just take your time and "talk" and eat at your own pace. I will go back with other groups. I would say that this is not an everyday place to go but great for a celebration.

Walked in at 3:50 PM, ten minutes before 4pm opening. Reservation set up for 5 with 3 teenage girls in advance. Immediately took us to "worst" table in restaurant in corner with one burner and chair in aisle. No one sitting in entire restaurant. I specifically requested to not have this happen in reservation request. Requested a different table and... More

My husband and I went to the Melting Pot for our one year anniversary. It was both our first time around, so we weren't sure what to expect. We had the most amazing time! Everything was great. We did the 4 course experience. Food was absolutely delicious! Our server, Brad was so courteous, helpful and efficient. We appreciated the manager... More

Been a few time here and overall it does have great fondue !. Cool presentations and very unique but after a few times it looses its charm. The full course meal for 2 are great for a date or special night out but very pricy often $125 for 2 So for locals not a place to go back more than... More

We celebrated a birthday dinner at the Melting Pot since we'd received a gift certificate, but we won't be back. We waited in the front of the restaurant for 10 minutes before anyone greeted us. Despite the fact that they had many open tables at Sunday dinner, the hostess would not seat us for 20 minutes without a reservation. No... More

We LOVE the Melting Pot. The food, service and specials are Amazing. We recommend the four course meal and a nice bottle or two of wine (house is great). Look for coupons. Great place for a girls night out or a date night. Thank you Lori for making our night special and fun!

It's all about the experience. Had a lot of fun socializing at the table even though the food was average. It was a bit confusing trying to order for three people as everyone has to agree on the pot sauce. The table settled on the Traditional Swiss cheese pot, the Mojo dinner pot and S'mores chocolate pot. YUM! I ordered... More
