I have to say that I LOVE the Melting Pot and understand that each one is a bit different and unique, but I have definitely had better experiences at others. The ease of making reservations online is wonderful. The food is consistently delicious and the staff is generally well trained. Very cozy... read more

We stumbled into this bar while waiting for the rest to open next door. One of the better dive bars i have ever visited. Rude (but fun) locals and bar staff.

The service is great. The food is always above expectation. I love how the whole eating experience is slow and relaxed. Take time to enjoy the smells and flavors. It is exceptional.

It was good, but the way people talk about it I thought it was going to be a lot better. So maybe the reputation is to it's detriment. We went on NYE so it was a fixed menu, which means I will give it another shot and see if it's any better. The service is really slow, which isn't good... More

Such a fun restaurant, I love the experience of cooking my own food at the table. They have a lot of good menu options, my only complaint is the price it's just a little pricy, but otherwise a great restaurant.

Cheese fondue and dessert was awesome. However, of the 4 of us in our party, we all thought it a bit weird to have such nice quality meats and have to boil them. Not the best treatment of the meats. If we have to cook our own meat, mall grills at the table would have made much more sense. Just... More

The environment and good food provided a great experience. Went as a couple and we were there just shy of 3 hours enjoying the different courses. They were all delicious. I give it an average rating because, while be a great experience and very good food, you don't leave here for under a hundred dollars per couple.

We went for a birthday dinner and it was unique and fun. It does take a bit of time and we had a reservation.

Attended with a 5 top on a Saturday night. Had a 530 reservation and two in our party were delayed with traffic downtown and they wouldn't seat us until they arrived which I totally understand. They did hold our reservation for 20 minutes until they arrived. Good server, I think his name was Joey. We all had a couple drinks... More

Always an enjoyable experience. We had no trouble getting a reservation & the restaurant is within walking distance of the Hilton.
