Nice comfortable restaurant for those who like to take their time while dining. Fondue selections are well conceived and delicious.

Overpriced and not what I would call a true fondue restaurant. I really don't like my meat 'boiled' - nor were the dipping ingredients for the cheese fondue of much interest. Dessert was probably the best .... Wine is totally overpriced.

Great experience. My husband and I have been to half a dozen Melting Pot's and our experience here was by far the best! Our server was Arsenal and he was fantastic- very funny, attentive, and polite. I would recommend this place to anyone who likes fondue and a fun dinner experience!

Really? $40 - $50 boiled meat stew in fondue bowls? This was the worst waste of money i have ever experienced. Took the kids to experience fondue and dropped $120. Leaving guests with a plate of raw meat and seafood to cook themselves is a recipe for sickness. Avoid this. Seems very date night like. Who needs boiled meat. Bland... More

Myself and my wife went out for a dinner and had a fantastic time. It was a very fun experience eating this way. The booths are all private so your eating experience is more intimate. Our server was very helpful and informative. We suggested this place to friends who visited one of these in Dallas and they had great reviews... More

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
