Cheese and Dessert

Happened into the Melting Pot on a spring break date and found the place empty. Therefore, we enjoyed a quiet dining experience, having both the traditional cheese fondue and chocolate fondue for dessert. We really enjoyed the evening and will return in the future.

We always want to like this restaurant on our trips to KC…if you don't care about service, and you have the time to wait for a table (even though their are plenty of open tables, there always seems to be a significant wait) then this restaurant is fine. Our table had to be wiped off after we sat down because... More

I absolutely love the atmosphere. This is one of the few places where I always go when I'm hungry and have a full three-course meal. The service is always amazing. They mix the fondue ingredients right in front of you, very nice interaction. It is one of the most romantic restaurants and an amazing place to celebrate special occasions such... More

Very interactive evening meal. This place is great for "new" dates and old friends. Food is good, our service was great, 2 1/2 hours of a good time. (we had the 4-course choice). Give it a go for a special outing.

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.
