My husband and I treat ourselves to a romantic, fantastic evening at The Melting Pot as often as we can. While we believe it is a restaurant for adults, we have seen children there many times. They, too, seem to be enjoying the food as well.

We only had time to stop quickly but we were very impressed with the service and the dessert. My daughter and I shared a chocolate fondue and were very impressed. It was quick and easy and we would definitely go back!

I visited the melting pot for my birthday with my fiance in November. We splurged and got the 4 course meal, and a bottle of wine in a private dining area. I cannot describe how much we enjoyed our visit. The food was delishious, service was spectacular, and the overall experience was truly amazing. What a wonderful birthday! We will... More

My best friend and I took our daughters, 10, 13, and 14 to The Melting Pot for a fun, long lunch as part of our holiday tradition. We had a wonderful time with our girls (without cell phones). The cheese and chocolate were sooo delicious!!! The salad had way too much dressing on it - would have loved to had... More

Returned to The Melting Pot for a birthday dinner, with an early reservation, remembering a classic European fondue experience-the previously special four course event that included traditional Alpine cheese fondue to start, a crisp clean salad, court bouillon or bourgiunonne cooking style for proteins followed by perfect chocolate fondue. Times and tastes do change, but should The Melting Pot now... More

Whatever you do, DO NOT book your holiday party or any event at The Melting Pot. First, Christina, the events coordinator, is unorganized, unaccomodating, and rude. The food is just mediocre. Adding the meat for a full meal is not necessary. Just the regular cheese and chocolate fondue is the way to go. Don't waste your money on the full... More

Place is absurdly expensive but you leave stuffed full & having had a really delightful time. We tried to move it along as we had little kids with us (8 & 4, very used to dining out & well behaved, but still... they're 8 & 4) & our waitress was receptive to that. Cocktail was sort of watery & sweet.... More

It was my first time to be in this place that I really didn't know what to expect here. Good thing my friend lead me the way. The atmosphere is nice and when we were presented with our order, I was surprised. Still, the food here is great and I won't mind coming back here again if time permits.

Since my wife and I have visited other Melting Pots we figured this would be a sure win while we were in town. First off we made reservations and still had to wait about 30 minutes. We were seated and it took about another 15 minutes before we got our drink order. We ordered a cheese dip for our appetizer... More
