I have been to the Melting Pot in about 6 - 8 different cities and this was one of the most plain Melting Pots I have been to decorum wise. A lot of Melting Pots have more unique flair and a feeling of Wow, I can't find this anywhere else! I also was not as impressed by the wine cellar... More

Best waiter, great food, awesome desert! Had a great time for daughter's 16th Birthday. Fondue was top notch, cheese was amazing, meats were terrific. Just had a really great time. yes, it took 3 hours, but it is supposed to!

2 words, BEST EXPERIENCE. The wine was tasty and tangy, a perfect place for a small get-together with friends, or a fancy dinner for 2. Whatever the occasion, The Melting Pot is a great place to eat. I would extremely recommend the 4-cource meal, (only for two or more guests), It is completely affordable and holds many courses. Course 1... More

I had never been to the Melting Pot but had heard great things. Easy valet parking for $10. Décor was very nice and nice patio to wait for our table We used the groupon coupon and the waiter was very knowledgeable about this promotion. We did order the cheese fondue that wasn't included in the special but we wanted to... More

It's a very appealing venue with polished, professional service and high-quality cuisine. There were seven of us (including three teens) at dinner, and everyone enjoyed the fun of dipping the cheese and dessert courses. The main course, by contrast, was a little tedious. Remembering the contents of each of the three separate cooking broths, and the cooking times for the... More

Very expensive rip off establishment where the food is mediocre at best and the experience is national chain.

We came in Sat night without a reservation so we waited in the bar for a while (make reservations!) But we loved the staff, and food was great. Will be back.

I was not happy with my visit. I should have read other reviews outside of TA. If you really want to go, then go and I hope it works for you. I should have known something was up when the place is half empty.

Before this visit, I had never been to The Melting Pot. I knew a little of what to expect, though. I had the 4 course experience with the cheddar cheese, salad, land and sea with the vegetable broth and the smores desert. I felt like I got mainly veggies with a little meat. The food was good but I'm not... More
