Wife and I dined here while on vacation. Great spot for a couple to dine on a date night! Intimate setting and very good service! Sit back and relax, it takes a while to get through the meal. We selected the 4 course meal and were not disappointed. Each course was very good. Our advice is to NOT fill up... More

Had a celebratory dinner here and it was lovely. The meal is a destination, not a meal. Even the 7yo enjoyed. Food was good with many choices for all. EXPENSIVE, but we were expecting that. Also, we ordered 3 meals for 6, with 2 extra salads and still had more food than we could eat. Service was excellent. It was... More

My family has been wanting to visit a Melting Pot for years and finally made it. It was soooo worth the wait! We were seated immediately and assigned "Justin G" as our waiter. I must eat gluten free and was concerned about how well they could accomodate this. I should not have worried. Our server was very knowledgeable about my... More

I was there the night "Allen P" and his husband attempted to dine at The Melting Pot. They were rude and obnoxious from the moment they entered the establishment. My wife and I were sitting at the bar waiting for our table to become available. it is a long dining experience and people eat at different paces so we understood... More

We had a great time. Justin was our waiter and how was knowledgeable and did a great job. We waited a little but with no reservation that's understandable.

This is an experience, not just dinner. We have wanted to try this for years, but we are always only near one when we are with other family that don't like to explore with food or won't spend that much money (It is pricey). Soooo glad we finally did. The food is delicious and the service is above and beyond.... More

There were 8 ladies in my party. We arrived a bit early so we all sat at the bar and enjoyed happy hour. Once at our table our server was fantastic and explained everything to those of us who had never been to a Melting Pot. Our food was excellent and so was the service. What a fun place!

Having been to several The Melting Pot location with decent success and even this location a few times, I was shocked and surprised to receive the worst customer service in a restaurant that I have ever had. I can't believe that customer service and management has sunken to such lows, especially for a restaurant that presents itself as a fine... More

Made a reservation over a month in advance for a romantic Valentine's dinner. I remembered making the reservation clearly because the hostess had zero phone skills. When I requested to be seated in "lover's lane", a private area the restaurant has for couples, her response was "Well you have to pay for that". Not exactly the immediate response I would... More
