First visit. Very nice.

The waiter was very friendly and efficient. The presentation and the atmosphere was great. I really enjoyed the experience. The food was just average, however. Order extras for the chocolate dish or you'll have lots of chocolate left over and no dippers!

My wife and I have dined here a few times now and each time it hasn't disappointed. I will get my minor gripes out of the way first, but ultimately you will enjoy your dinner here. You must make reservations even if you come in the afternoon, they did not accomodate us even though the website says reservations are recommended... More

I went to The Melting Pot after running the Pittsburg Marathon. It was my first visit to this location, as I'm from out of town, but I've been to several other MP locations. The restaurant has a wonderful atmosphere and vibe. It felt very upscale, is nicely decorated, and clean. One of the coolest features were the small tables for... More

Of course it is going to be expensive-but keep in mind that that price includes a unique experience as well as great food. The lighting is perfect, the service is well trained and friendly, and there is nowhere else in Pittsburgh with food like this. The chocolate fondue is the best part. If you just go for dessert, your bill... More

Like the title says, this is a place to go when your in the mood to have some fun. Dining here is about the "experience" and atmosphere. Food quality is average, wait staff was very friendly and efficient. We arrived for our reservation a little late due to road closures in the area (PGH marathon weekend) but they were understanding... More

This location offered a Valentine's dinner for anyone in the hospitality industry that could not experience the Valentine's Day dinner offered by the restaurant and it was wonderful!

This was our first experience with any fondue restaurant but the folks at the Melting Pot made it a very enjoyable experience. Sort of like a hibachi restaurant in that everything is prepared in front of you, but you also cook your own food - which sounds intimidating at first,but the staff does a great job, and it really was...

Great for couple to celebrate. Excellent cheese fondue and chocolate fondue. We skipped the meats cooked in oils and had 2 cheese fondues. It is quite expensive.

I don't know where to start this review. We were headed to the late show of Garth Brooks sat night. Always looking for a new place to eat, my sister in law suggested "The Melting Pot". Having never been, we were more than up for going. I made reservations for 7:15 because the concert wasn't starting until 10:30. We figured... More

We knew the cost before going. We chose to go for dessert only. The food and staff both were good. The wine list is very unimaginative to say the least. I think my expectations were too high.
