The Melting Pot is a favorite for special occasions, like an anniversary. The staff is gracious and professional. The booths allow for a relaxed, intimate dinner. The pace of the meal is up to you, as you choose what to dip into the broth of your choice, and wait for it to cook. And of course, there is the decadent... More

Purchased a Groupon for three course dinner, and added a cheese fondue. The Melting Pot is an occasional date spot, we eat here maybe every year or so. Afterward we are always reminded of why we don't frequent it more often. The concept is unique and makes it interesting. The food is good but hasn't changed much over the years.... More

My husband and I went to this restaurant and we expected higher quality food for the price. Overall, fondue was not our thing, nor was the fondue itself particularly tasty. The beer was served with no head, at all, which was a little dissappointing. The bartender was very friendly, though.

The Melting Pot is great for special occasions, official or unoffical. Definitely check out their Happy Hour. While the typical menu is quite spendy, you can have a tasty bowl of cheese with dippers for a decent price. One of my girlfriends and I like to come here for their special events (sign up for their email newsletter for information... More

It is fun and it can be very healthy too depending on what you order. It can be a girls night out, a date night or just fun.

You need to be a fondue fan to appreciate this restaurant. Unfortunately, it was expensive and not all interesting plus the service was dreadful the evening I was there.

This was a very unique experience. The staff were very attentive and the food was enjoyable however, it was a bit pricey. You are paying more for the presentation. We went with a group and it was fun but I would like to go back as just a couple and not the one paying for more than just two.

This is hands down my favorite restaurant. The staff is always incredibly nice and the food is amazing! I have so much fun watching them prepare the fondue. I always get the Big Night Out which includes a salad, cheese fondue, bouillon, and dessert fondue. You get tons of meet and vegetable options to try with lots of sauces and... More

Went to the Melting Pot Tacoma and it is just like other Melting Pots. Food was very good, service not bad, wine incredibly overpriced.
