Amazing!

This place has me hooked on fondue! Try the Melting Pot original chocolate peanut butter! My family went for my birthday, and it was definitely a special meal. We had great service!

This was our first visit, so we did not have a clear expectation of how the meal would go -- we just thought the idea of a fondue dinner was fun for just the two of us! Our waiter (Ian) was superb, with a self-deprecating sense of humor (while he demonstrated that he had a command of the craft involved... More

Was a fun first try at fondue here in the states as the real first time was in Switzerland on a boat in Lake Thun. The melting pot had welcoming and knowledgeable staff so we tried the 4 course experience and it was very good. The salad was nice, then came cheese fondue time, since we went with another couple,...

This was my first fonduo experience and I loved most of it. Cheese and chocolate fondous were the best and you may land up scratching the chocolate from the pot. Dim and relaxing ambiance. The restaurant staff is super friendly and professional. The food is good but over priced.

Had a good time out with friends. Was skeptical when my wife suggested it. The main course and the dessert were very good.

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.
