Solid Choice for Most Occasions

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... read more

The food is good and the experience is great. The service could have been better and more attentive.

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

Went here for a birthday party with my daughter and her inlaws. 8 people packed into an area designed for no more than 4 max. Allowed only two fondue pots. The quality of the meats, fish and vegetables was at best average. The servers tried heroically to make it acceptable but had too much too overcome. The cost of the... More

The place was beautiful and the bar area was cozy. We were there on a week night and it did not seem busy, yet our waitress seemed a bit overwhelmed or in a hurry. I went with a group of 6, 4 adults, and 2 kids and our waitress did not appear to be happy to have us in her... More

Hubby and I wanted to try a new restaurant and was told about this place through a friend and although I drive by this place quite often I never gave it a second look, especially not fully understanding what fondue was. They have a great couples portion which includes appetizer, 2 meal entree, and dessert. We started out with a... More

I had been there a few times before and honestly I wasn't impressed. This time though was much better. We had a groupon which helped with the cost. Even with the groupon it cost almost 100 dollars (50 for the groupon plus drinks tax and tip). The service was great and the food was much better. I do still think... More
