I heard a lot about the melting pot before I went. Valentines dinner ran $55 per person. It seemed to me that the amount of food that my husband and I were given (in terms of meat/chicken) was just enough for one person. Each person got about 4 pieces of each item to cook in the hot pot. For desert,... More

We have been to several different Melting Pots in major cities. As a result we joined their "club." One of the benefits of the club is that you get a box of chocolate covered strawberries on special occasions. Twice we have presented the coupon on nota gotten them because they forgot or ran out. Don't send out an offer if... More

I've always wanted to go there and my husband included a dinner here as part of my Christmas gift. We had a great evening. Our waiter Alex was wonderful and I enjoyed all 4 courses. It was a little pricey, so definitely save this for a special occasion. I would love to return.

For the prices - hard for me to get over cook your own food. While I enjoyed the desserts and chocolate dipping - cooking your own meat I didn't care for.

Our dining group from church decided to go to The Melting Pot together and it happened to be on Mike's birthday. We used to have fondue at home with guests years ago and were curious about a restaurant that offered it. From the moment we arrived they were very hospitable. Our server explained everything in detail and gave personal recommendations.... More

I enjoyed the food at this establishment. It is pretty expensive for a place that you essentially cook your own food. They keep the light pritty dim so us older folks might have a tough time looking at the menu and cooking our tasty morsels. They are also pretty cagey about reservations for special events, like Valentine's Day, etc. I... More

We made a reservation for my oldest daughters sweet 16 with our extended family. We had a fantastic time, the food was simply delicious, our waitress Megan fantastic, and the champagne glass with chocolate truffles and balloons added a great touch. We even got a framed picture of all of us at the end of the night. The main reason... More

I picked her up from the airport and headed over and arrived roughly 10 minutes early and the second I walked through the door, they were waiting and took us straight back to a... More
