My husband and I finally made it to the Melting Pot after a couple years of subtle hinting from me :) It's a great, romantic place. If you've heard this is a romantic spot, it is! There are private, cozy tables, and the process of sharing fondue can be very sweet and intimate. But, there are also tables that had... More

Although the restaurant isn't quite as intimate and cozy as it used to be at its old location, we still enjoy a good meal there. Servers are excellent and food is great.

We were 3 colleagues having the 45$ menu, starting with a cheese fondue and appetizers, followed by a meat fondue with 4-5 different meat types, ending with a salty chocolate fondue, recommended by the waiter himself. Very satisfying!

We go once or twice a year for anniversaries, special occasions, or because we have a Groupon. Usually, we will get the 4 course meal. Cheese fondue (bread and veggies), salad, entree (meat, veggies, and potato) and chocolate fondue. A leisurely meal is typically around 1-1/2 hours. My favorite is the cheese fondue. The booths offer a little bit of... More

My wife and I spent celebrated our anniversary there and it did not disappoint. We have been there 3 times and each time we have enjoyed a great meal, excellent service, and warm environment. If you have the chance, ask to be seated in Lover's Lane. There are small booths, with a curtain for some privacy.

When we make dinner plans we enjoy researching our destination. While searching for a "Special" romantic evening we found the Melting Pot. This has been touted by Indianapolis Magazine and Nuvo Magazine as Indy's Most Romantic Restaurant. They have established a few Romantic packages that you should check out. But if romance is your desire, definitely be sure to call... More

Every year at the end of July we come down to Indianapolis for the NASCAR race. We've made it an annual stop while were here. For those never visiting a melting pot be sure to plan for at least 2 hours for your experience! This isn't a bad thing. The time flies by! The food and service has always been... More
