A wonderful experience from the moment you walk in the door. Ted and I have wanted to dine at the melting pot for years. We finally had the opportunity. The hostess was pleasant, our server was exceptional and the food was excellent! The owner, Tom Fox, visited our table to inquire about our experience. Our server did an excellent job... More

I made a reservation well in advance for my wife's 51st Birthday. The restaurant called and confirmed my reservation. It was for 8:30. We were seated relatively close to our reservation time, about 10 minutes late. Not a big deal as we relaxed at the bar. Once seated a festive young lady came over and introduced herself and old us... More

I had never been to a MP before and was admittedly not expecting much. However, I was pleasantly surprised by the overall taste and quality of the food albeit... More

If you're a man - you will be annoyed by this place and probably leave hungry. People who like to cook their own dinners probably would prefer to be in their own kitchen rather than at this place, Too much fuss with mediocre results.

This was the first time I've ever been to a "Melting Pot" I enjoyed the experience but if you are one looking for tons of food this place is not for you.

I just LOVE cheese and I love to try them all. Salads are excellent. Who can resist melted chocolate?

The Melting Pot is a place to go with people that you really enjoy being with. Besides the fact that the food is great, a meal at the Melting Pot takes no less than 2-3 hours. That leaves plenty of time for enjoying time with your dining partners over a simmering pot of fondue.
