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.

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. It is an expensive evening and so sitting almost cafeteria... read more

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.

We haven't been to the Melting Pot in several years, so we went there in mid-December to celebrate our anniversary. We were seated promptly at a booth for two with a small cook top built into the table with the fondue pot ready to go. The booths have privacy curtains if you want to close them. We were two people... More

We went to the facility off Hayden for a birthday celebration last night. The experience as a whole was absolutely delightful. If you have not tried The Melting Pot it is a must. Our reservation was not honored. Be advised it took 30 minutes past the reservation time to be seated. Other than that though everything was magnificent! Private couple... More

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
