My daughter turned 13 in December, and one thing she wanted to do was go to the Melting Pot for chocolate fondue. December was crazy busy, so we finally got around to it this weekend. I made a reservation the night before for 1:15pm. We arrived quite a bit early, but the restaurant was almost empty (I only saw one... More

We were given a very quiet corner to ourselves as we requested. Wait staff was attentive and informative. Enjoyed everything we had to eat from the Caprese Salad, shrimp entrée and turtle fondue desert. Especially like that you are also given dipping sauces to go with the main entrée and vegetables. We were in no hurry and never felt rushed.... More

Lea was an exceptional server. Made us feel welcomed and explained the menu very well. This was our first time eating at The Melting Pot and can't wait to go back to try more items. Loved it!

The Melting Pot is a good choice for a birthday, an anniversary, or another special occasion. Decor is excellent, and the furnishings are well placed. Very classy and elegant for a large restaurant 40 miles into the suburbs. Comfortable booths, but the chairs were sometimes squeaky. However, the servers were a little over-excited and took away from the elegant feel... More

we had xcellent food, excellent service. We really enjoyed our meal here and will definitely be back. Bryan was our server and did an absolutely wonderful job. Brian gave us great service and did an excellent job at explaining the whole fondue process to us.

My husband and I went for our first time and had a coupon. Our server (female, first initial M) did what she was supposed to do as far as explaining the fondue process etc, but wasn't very pleasant. Almost appeared that she didn't want to be there. I ordered an $8.00 glass of wine and she brought that to me... More

It really is an experience. The food is good even though it is very pricey. There was 4 of us on a check and our bill was $270 and only two of us had drinks. The service was disappointing. We had reservations, but it took 10 minutes to be seated then we waited 5 minutes for anyone to talk to... More

I've wanted to try The Melting Pot for a long time, but have always felt it was too expensive. Thanks to a special offer, we tried it last night. On the plus side, it's a different kind of meal. It can be more leisurely, because you spend time dipping, even cooking your main dish items. They have 3 and 4... More
