Fun unique experience with average food

We made reservations for the happy hour special, as we weren't overly hungry. The cheese fondue was interesting with the server making the fondue right at our table. I was expecting a more flavourful cheese fondue with all the ingredients he added, but it just tasted cheesy. We were given a... read more

This is a fabulous restaurant with a great wine selection. The entrée fondues are incredible and the dessert fondues are also great, It is moderately priced and well worth the money I am so glad they have one in Alberta now

We went to the Melting Pot with friends who love it. There wasn't anything really bad about the restaurant it just wasn't for me. It was very expensive for raw food I have to cook myself. The cheese fondu was ok, but nothing special. If you wanted anything above a regular fondu there is an extra charge. The dessert was... More

I was told by several people that this was a good place, and my girlfriend at the time really wanted to go. Needless to say I was extremely disappointed, I would have been better off buying everything including the fondue pot myself. The quality of the food was moderate at best, and the service was not great. I'll leave the... More

A friend and I took our beloveds to the Melting Pot. We were welcomed and enjoyed wonderful service even though they were packed. It was quiet, private, sweet and leisurely. We enjoyed every course. We asked for and received more veggies with the first course. The cheeses, veggies, seasoned meats and dessert choices were enjoyed by each of us. Our... More

Fondue is fun and it is a good concept. The only problem is that it is really expensive to eat here. For three people it is not unusual to have a bill of $200, with one diner a non-drinker. The food is good. Service is good but it is hard to justify the price

I took a date here, it was her first time having fondue. It was a great experience for the both of us! Our waiter was awesome! He took very good care of us, and was very enjoyable. The food was excellent! This is a great place to go to for a night out!

My friend and I had a very leisurely and quiet lunch that was quite different than the normal soup and sandwich lunch cuisine. We made reservations and glad we did as there was a waiting line. We left quite full and it was a nice way to start our Christmas shopping down town.

Great place if you are looking for a quiet leisurely dinner. Be prepared to relax and not be in a hurry. If you are looking for something different from the norm and want to enjoy the people you are with, this fits the bill. The food is secondary as you have to cook it yourself. In a fondue pot.

This place is hard to find, it is on the second floor, and the entrance is down the street. However once you are there you will enjoy yourself. The food is tasty and it is fun to "cook" your own food. I will return again ~
