ALL of the accolades and praise for Jason behind the bar who made our late night visit for dessert and drinks absolutely phenomenal. This guy pours a mean Manhattan (I would know) and makes a killer negroni. Dessert was delicious: s'mores chocolate with all the fixings, plus extra strawberries and marshmallows on account of our entirely awesome bartender. Such a... More

It was worth the experience, but that is it. It was one of those things you do and say okay I did it. Don't get me wrong the food and drinks were very good. Staff was professional and kind. It is a little dark and if you are having drinks you will acquire a bill roughly in 3 digits for... More

Keep in mind you are going to be cooking your main course. We started out with the cheese fondue which had apples, bread to dip in the savory cheese dip of your choice. Then our salad, which is the best salad I have ever had at a restaurant. Then the main course we had was a lunch special and had... More

This was some of the best food I've had! We didn't need to get entrees because after having cheese fondue, salads, and chocolate fondue we were stuffed! This we a unique dining experience and fun, as well. It can be a little more pricey than the average chain restaurant. Listen , if you want to spend less than $50 on... More

First off when you go to the Melting Pot you should know that you cook your own food. That is the allure of the place. The service we received was excellent, my Long Island Iced Tea was one of the best I've ever had and I might say that our food was prefect since my wife and I made it!... More

We went here to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday. And it took our waitress 30 minutes to bring us a beer! We were there for almost 2 hours before we got our food. It was ridiculous. If I am going to pay $80 I expect good service.

Went to the restaurant with great expectations hoping to have a unique dining experience with fine food. Instead what I did get is food just about enough in quantity to feed a bird at an exorbitant price! Worst dining experience. Felt cheated.

I have been luckily enough to vacation in Switzerland and eat real authentic Swiss Fondue. This place compares well with great food and a good atmosphere. We had traditional cheese fondue followed up by a chocolate desert fondue which was perfect except we ran out of fruit and marshmallow dips before we ran out of chocolate. Service was fast and...
