The "fondue" experience should be experienced with a group of friends as the process is slow. You will not walk away hungry that is for sure. Since the process is slow this gives you time to chat with each other and catch up on your current events. We go as a ladies night and spend several hours in the restaurant.... More

We really enjoy the Melting Pot. We've gone in later in the evening just for the cheese and chocolate fondue. The service is impeccable and the wait staff is very knowledgeable. I recommend giving them a try.

My daughter and I went to The Melting Pot early on a Friday night. Since it was our first time, the waitress went above and beyond describing everything to us. I wish I remembered her name (Victoria? It began with a V...I think). Anyway, they had a special for a four-course meal for two so we went with that. Because... More

We had an excellent experience enjoying a 4 course meal. Our server -Christian- was excellent and paced our meal so that we could enjoy our meal and take in the Melting Pot method. Glad we took the time to enjoy a leisurely lunch.

We had the four course meal and it was awesome, but spendy. We liked the Wisconsin cheese the best. And the chocolate fondue was amazing even though we usually do not get desert. I would get the cheese and desert combo next time and skip the Thomson course. The menu is confusing and it is expensive. Great for birthday special.

We went there for my birthday. We took two teens who had no idea what Fondue was. It was great, the food was fantastic, one teen at first complained about having to cook it herself but that changed once she got the hang of it. The other just went for it. The cheese sauces were great, the Cajun sauce for... More

We've talked about trying Melting Pot for a while now based on multiple recommendations from friends. Mother-In-Law was in town for Thanksgiving and we decided that was the perfect occasion for a visit. The evening was excellent in every respect. The menu is overwhelming but the staff is very helpful and attentive. Not a cheap evening by any stretch but... More

This is more than good food, it is a time to relax because you cannot rush this meal; sit back and enjoy the company of the people you came with. The wait staff are remarkable, knowledgeable of all items on the menu as well as preparing various choice options. Speaking about choices, there are several to make and because everything... More

The food was delicious and the service was great. WE had a 7:30 reservation, but I would go earlier next time so there was time to slowly savor all the courses.
