My wife and I decided to visit The Melting Pot to celebrate our 3rd anniversary. My wife found it online and thought it sounded really fun. And for sure, it was! The restaurant is nestled down a flight of stairs right near the Plaza shopping area, so it's a great location. It's pretty dark and very quiet, which creates a... More

This is a fondue restaurant located at the Country Club Plaza in Kansas City, Mo. You will be choosing from the typical breads, cheese and fruit and some vegetables. In addition, there are meat options (meaning you will essentially be cooking your own food). Our tab for three people was nearly $200 and while we don't mind spending money on... More

I've been going to Melting Pots in different cities for ten plus years. Every single time it has been a lot of fun because of the people we were with and the serving staff. I'm not sure how we've managed it, but there's just been a string of fun/interesting people serving us. So, here is my short hand to a... More

Fondue isn't for everyone, but I enjoy the experience of it. The entire idea of the Melting Pot is for you to actually do the cooking yourself. If you don't like that idea than you shouldn't eat here. I however, find it to be an entertaining meal. It's a great way to be social and take a longer than average... More

My wife and I decided to try something new. A fondu restaurant sounded interesting so I thought I would give it a try. #1 be prepared for a pricey meal when you decide to go. #2 dessert is a mist and was by fr the best part of the meal. I had chicken potstickers for main dish and they were... More

Great place for fondue. Went during the happy hour. It is more reasonable priced at that time Did not like the wine base cheese fondue, would most definitely choose cheddar based at next time

We were disappointed to find the Melting Pot closed 3/21 due to a water main break. After contacting them to express our frustration we were more than impressed with the customer service. They responded in less than 24 hours outlining the ways they had tried to let customers know. We will definitely be back to thank them in person as... More

This is our family's "go to" place for celebrations. We frequent this restaurant several times a year. Sometimes we just do the half price chocolate, sometimes we do the cheese and chocolate, and sometimes we do all four courses. I love all their food, and I haven't met anything I haven't liked yet. This place is perfect for all kinds... More

We went there to celebrate my birthday without a reservation. We had 3 courses. The waiter recommended a good cheese combination that we started with and shared. We each had our own entrée and the waiter nicely went over the sauces and brought more of what we needed. Then dessert! The waiter even brought out more of our favorites to... More
