A very enjoyable dining experience

We went to this establishment for the first time on a Saturday with reservations for 4:30. Our server was excellent (this definitely makes a difference), very friendly, personable, and walked us through the menu (which is daunting).

Foundue with fresh ingredients, good service and nice atmosphere. We tried cheese, meat and chocolate foundues. They were all delicious. The table has its own cook top to heat the bowls, its very fancy! I'd come back!

It started with the yummy Ying Yang Martini. So, if you are on a diet, then this is not the place for you. If you are a lover of cheese, seafood or meat and chocolate, then this is the place for you. There were five us of celebrating a work accomplishment. We had terrific service. We like the atmosphere at... More

Great date night place as almost every table is a booth and semi-private. Plan on coming hungry and spending time to enjoy the experience. You have plenty of time to converse while you dip tasty bites in your cheese fondue starter. Then on to a simple but refreshing salad before the main entrée which you cook yourself in middle of...

My companion and I had dinner here last night and enjoyed the experience. Everyone greeted us with a friendly warm smile, starting with the parking valet. My only complaint was the lighting was so dim we couldn't read the menu. Menu was well laid out and easy to read after being instructed by our friendly server. Don't be in a... More

I have come here for both the dinner and the happy hour. both are AMAZING! I came here most recently for their 5,5,7 happy hour promotion. ($5 a person for a cheese pot, $5 salad, $5 beer or wine and $7 for dessert). A word of advice though, when you come for happy hour, order everything upfront and have them... More

We happened upon this restaurant when we were joining several friends at the Keys on Main venue which no longer serves food. Hidden down an alleyway behind two other restaurants this was an extraordinary find. A large, attractively designed and decorated restaurant with a nice bistro/bar section (in which we were seated) with large windows (with unfortunately no view) and... More

The staff and service was great. The food was pretty good but I've had much better for the money. This place is spendy for the portions that you get however I guess if you want to pay for a 4 course meal you'll get to enjoy all 4 courses because of the small portion size. Overall I'm glad that I... More

If you are choosing between the Bellevue and Seattle Melting Pot restaurants. In my recent experiences with both, the service and atmosphere at the Seattle location was significantly better. The food on par with each other. The food is as always relatively good and the 4 course menu by far the best option cost and food wise! Just make sure... More
