I wasn't overly impressed with my first visit to a Melting Pot restaurant. It's located in the basement of a building and gave a very claustrophobic feeling to the place. Everything they offer is based on the melting pot in the table center. I think I ate two days worth of calories in one sitting. The cheese selection was very... More

The Melting Pot is a bucket list item. The food was excellent. The service was great. My children loved it and it would make a great romantic date night destination too. It is expensive but we found a coupon on CrowdSavings.com that made it a great value!

I took my husband here for his birthday and they treated him like a king, right down to the lit candle placed on the brownie bite he later dipped in some fantastic chocolate. Our server explained everything and helped us decide what we wanted to eat and did she ever steer us right!! The filet was mouthwatering and the shrimp... More

My first visit to The Melting Pot was during a girls night out, and we had a blast! Every other time, my husband and I have enjoyed a special date night here! The atmosphere is very romantic, and the fondue is amazing! My mouth is watering thinking of the cheese and bread, and the desserts! Yum!

We ate here on Saturday evening, celebrating a birthday and just to have what was supposed to be a lovely evening out. Unfortunately, the hostess was quite rude when I entered, asking "How can I help you?" in a rather abrasive tone. I can only surmise that it was the same hostess that argued with my friend about my already... More

My fiancé took me here for my birthday and it was the best birthday dinner I could imagine! We got the 4 course meal for couples, and it took about 2 hours to completely finish. Which was expected and understandable. The food was delicious our server and even the manager came and told me happy birthday! I felt very spoiled... More

We love this place, although we frequently doubt ourselves just because it is a chain...but then we remind ourselves that it is the "creme de la creme" of chain restaurants. It is sometimes understaffed, but all the staff are outstanding and experienced, so you feel like your needs are being taken care of even when they are at their busiest.... More

This is always either a birthday or anniversary spot for my wife and I. Plan on being here for at least a couple of hours and enjoying some great fondue. You'll need a big appetite because you will get lots of food.

We went to the melting pot this past weekend and although the food was fantastic our servers other tables were completely on the other side of the restaurant and it felt like he kept forgetting us. We asked for additional teriyaki sauce waited 15 minutes and then continued eating as we realized that we wouldn't be getting what we asked... More
