A nice change of pace!

We wanted to try something out of the ordinary for my husband's birthday so we went here for fondue. One should plan to come really hungry! Food was good quality as was the service.

We selected this restaurant during Restaurant Week with another couple and were not disappointed. I had only been there once several years ago and none of the other three had ever been. As I remembered, the fondue is quite filling but delicious, and we had a great time skewering our food and tossing it into the pot. Word of caution:... More

We tried this restaurant once before and were treated so poorly, we left before eating. My son has always wanted to eat here, so we decided to give it one more try during restaurant week. Had another adult and 12 year old with us. Keep in mind that I went in still annoyed with our treatment, so they had to... More

As part of my birthday present, my friends took me to the Melting Pot in Kansas City, Mo for dessert. The chocolate fondue was wonderful. We had the turtle chocolate caramel fondue and the Yin and Yang (white and dark chocolate). It came with a nice selection of dippers, cake, strawberries, bananas, marshmallows, Krispie treats. I was surprised that the... More

I take my wife here every couple months. We always have Michael as a server but he wasn't there this Saturday. I was meaning to write a review of him, when we dined here last a couple months back, he went above and beyond. Gave my wife a rose, free champagne, insisted we try their feature Pumpkin Chocolate along side... More

We visited the Melting Pot for dessert over Christmas break with some our friends. When arrived at the restaurant at 8:00 PM, the wait for a table was well over 2 hours. In talking to the hostess, she informed me that the restaurant was understaffed and did not expect a huge crowd on a Tuesday night. In our conversation, she... More

After several years we returned to The Melting Pot. We chose the 4-course experience, which included a cheese fondue, a salad choice, an entree and a chocolate fondue. I was pleased with the cheese fondue and it was a great appetizer. I picked the lettuce wedge salad, which was a huge disappointment. The thick end of the wedge was probably... More

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
