What a joke, you have to cook your own food. They told us the wait would be 45 min. We waited for over an hour. Never coming here again, don't know why women love this place

While we liked the offerings, the amount of food you get for the price leaves you hungry. Went for a special occasion and probably will not frequent very often.

Everything about the experience was outstanding. Our server was friendly and efficient. The options for food and cooking mediums were superb. I absolutely loved the variety of sauces--they were so tasty. And the chocolate---OMG. It was our son's birthday dinner and the staff gave him a signed birthday card and everyone wished him a happy birthday--very nice touch.

This was our second time eating at this location and we really enjoyed it. We came for a romantic 10th anniversary dinner and we were not disappointed. We requested private seating when we made the reservation which made the experience so nice. Just like the first time we went, the service was excellent. Our waitress was very attentive and helpful.... More

I took my sister to melting pot for her birthday. First, they didn't want to honor my groupon so I requested a manager. It took the manager 20 minutes to come to our table. We were about to leave. The manager said something was wrong with Groupon but decided to honor what was clearly on the voucher. I also asked... More

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!
