Something New- Quite A Dining Experience

Was in the city for the weekend. Had known about this restaurant from a past visit, but never had the time to stop in. That is the key word- time. No idea what we were getting into. Very, very good waiter- was accommodating and informative. We started with the cheese and bread- that was fun... read more

We chose to dine @ the Melting Pot as part of our annual back to school/ girls night shopping trip. Our ages ranged from 60's down to 16. My 16 year old has a very severe food allergy to seafood, all kinds fin fish, crustations, shell fish you name it. Before we were even sat the manager came out to... More

Such a fun place, with a different take on dinner. You can order a variety of options here -- anywhere from one to four courses. The courses are: cheese fondue appetizer, salad, entree, and dessert. Everything except the salad is fondue. The serving sizes are not huge but very reasonable, especially if you'll be eating multiple courses. The variety of... More

What an experience! I brought my niece and nephews after a movie and we had such a nice time. The server was extremely helpful in guiding us with our choices. And it was so fun for the kids (9,11,14 years old) to cook their own meals. I will definitely be back!

We were staying a couple of blocks from Providence Place, so we decided to try the Melting Pot. It was nice to eat a meal apart from the regular salad, entree, dessert routine. You can choose from 1-4 courses (cheese, salad, entree, and dessert). All but the salad are cooked at your table fondue style and you get several options... More

You do need to be close with people you are going with since you will share dipping sauces and cooking pans with them. We were seated promptly and had good service the entire time we were there. We had theatre tickets so I was worried about the time we would need at the restaurant based on reviews here, but at... More

I thought we would have a pleasant fondue dinner what we had is an excellent dining experience. our server Ryan was knowledgable and pleasant, we never felt rushed. All the suggestions made were on target. we were there for three hours and it did not seem that long. The beef was tender and tasty. definitely would go again!

My daughter and I had dinner at this restaurant on a freezing cold January day. We were seated at a table that got a breeze every time someone entered Providence Place Mall. I complained but I was told there was really nothing they could do, even though the restaurant was empty. At the end of the meal, the manager came... More
