My boyfriend and I went here for date night. We had 3 meats to choose from for each of us. Together, we ordered teriyaki steak, chicken, shrimp, duck, filet mignon, and another type of steak. The duck was the absolute best! Service was impeccable! Ambiance, magnificent! Expect to spend about $120 or so for two people. Tip- Check groupon or... More

We were visiting our son and he wanted to go to the restaurant for his birthday celebration. Parking was confusing because of construction going on and there were no signs to let you know what to do. I was afraid the whole concept was a bit gimmicky and I was right. The food was good and certainly ample but price... More

I really, really want to like this restaurant. The concept is intriguing. Columbia has always seemed chopped up into confusing communities. Having said that, I love Columbia. But it doesn't help when arriving at this restaurant. The parking is behind the restaurant, and there is much construction in the adjacent lot, next to the sidewalk that takes you to the... More

Food is not bad, but the prices are way to high for what you get. The waitress was very nice and helpful, but I still can't swallow the prices.

Menu is too confusing. Rickety furniture. Booths falling apart and unsafe for sitting. Portions small considering the price. Waiter was great.

I've been dining at this Melting Pot twice and the one in Annapolis MD a couple of times year for around eight years. I've received poor (or worse) service at this particular occasion both times. While circumstances were not ideal--we had a large party (12 people) including several children--good service should be the norm no matter what. My wife, myself,... More

Came here on a Thursday night for dinner and had a great time! The booth we were put in was nice and cozy for the two of us. The diners on the other side of us were pretty loud but we didn't mind at all. Our server was really friendly and helpful and their gluten-free selection is incredible! Was so... More

Service here was great, but I didn't really get the concept behind the restaurant. In this place, they give you the ingredients and you make your own food. Can't say that's why I ever go to a restaurant... And it's pricey! The food wasn't even that good, maybe because I made it myself.

coming here is always a great treat as i never do fondue at home. the restaurant ambiance is very nice and while it can sometimes be noisy with children and loud people, the experience is really fun for a casual date or going out with friends and family. allow yourself at least 2 hours if you're doing all the courses....

We arrived on time for a 6:45 reservation. We could tell it was busy but the hostess said they were just getting our table ready. To make a long story short, it was 45 minutes before we were seated. The excuse was that many people were not leaving their tables. So we order a bottle of wine. Then we fine... More
