Enjoying going here with my husband and relaxing for a special occasion. When booking ask for the back room or intimate booth. One of our favorite booths is the corner booth in the bar! Never feel rushed or pressured when dining here.

We did the four course option and if we had to do it over, we would skip the salad and the meat. The fondues are where this restaraunt shines. Delicious smores fondue for desert. Pricing and prefering other cooking methods for my steak and chicken are what keep me from giving it a 5/5.

We ate a three course meal and weren't impressed with the cheese fondue or the meat but I absolutely loved the dessert. We got a flaming white chocolate one and it was the best dessert ever!! It's really expensive but the dessert is well worth it. Alcoholic drinks are about $10 beer was in think $7.

My wife and I took our three daughters(ages 11, 10, 8) to The Melting Pot for an early dinner. We ordered three adult portions of the 4 Course Meal and shared it between all five of us. The cheese course was fantastic! The Swiss was the favorite of the adults and cheddar the kids pick. Course 2: Salad-- was good... More

My wife and my birthday are pretty close and so we decided to go midway between the two days. We made a reservation about 4 days prior and arrived a few minutes early. We were seated on time, and were served by very courteous waitress. We went for the four course meal for 2 and started off with the Traditional... More

The whole operation sparkles with good management. high quality food, hundreds of options make this a terrific place for a couple or two couples. Not conducive to more than 4 people due to the layout, but they can try to do 6 or 8. Not recommended though as the seating would be awkward. Amazing food, terrific experience and lots of... More

We had a mother/daughter girls night. It was so much fun. The atmosphere was nice and the food was great, especially the chocolate combination fondue at the end. Our server was efficient and friendly and very helpful.

We had a late reservation of 8:45. When we were showed to our table we noticed a lot of tables that had not been bussed. The restaurant was not very full, but the service was extremely slow. It took about 10 minutes to get our drinks. We did really like the little couples booth we were seated in. The good... More

Some girlfriends of mine and I visited the Melting Pot recently. None of us had ever been there before, so we had several questions. I can't speak for anyone else at my table, but I felt like the waitress rushed our questions, and wasn't very thorough with answering them.The food was delicious. I do think that the portions of the... More
