We did the 4 course meal and we did enjoy it but for what you get and the quality of it, it seems a bit pricey (with tip was over $150 for 3).the meats seem average at best, beef cuts seemed to be lower end chuck or along those lines and the shrimp were not small but not large by... More

Bullet points: - Got a salad, it was very small and so over-dressed, the lettuce was soggy! Did i order the soup?! - The chicken pot-stickers were the same quality as something you'd pick up from the frozen section of BJs or Sam's Club. - The sauces are very syrupy and overly sweet. They taste like they came out of... More

We got a last minute reservation for Friday night. We have been to other Melting Pots restaurants before, but decided to try it again. This was the best. The cheese fondue didn't taste like beer, but cheddar. They provided us with more veggies and water on a timely pace. They didn't rush us like other Melting pots. The staff was... More

This was the best week to visit Providence, restaurant week. My daughter and I enjoyed our meal and we had 1 cocktail each and the bill was reasonable. The food was delicious, our server was great. Very knowledgeable. I would actually go to the one in NJ after this visit.

I had been wanting to go to the melting pot for years. The price for meals at them and Pat was just never in our budget, so I bought a Groupon hoping that we would be able to go at a more affordable price. Boy was I wrong. we ended up spending an extra $25 on food as well as... More

The Melting Pot was way over priced for what you get and the quality of the food. Service was friendly and prompt. The drinks were made to perfection. But 143.00 for 2 adults with 4 drinks & dinner, for fondue......

The cheese fondue is just okey,poor choice of dipping items,the vegetables were quite... More

The Melting Pot is a fun place to eat - as long as you're not in a hurry. Our family of 3 ordered the 4-course fondue flight: the Swiss fondue to start, different salads and entrees, and the Cookies and Cream chocolate fondue. Delish. Lots of great-quality food - no complaints there. But a bit pricey - about $45 per... More

My husband and I stopped by here for dinner on a Sunday after running errands at Providence Place. The hostess asked us, rather unwelcomingly, if we had reservations. It was 5:30pm on a Sunday and we did not. She said she'd "try to fit us in" ... but then led us past at least twenty empty booths on the way... More

My husband and I just visited this resturant last evening for the first time. I had purchased a living social voucher a few months back and redeemed it last night. We knew it would be a cheese fondue theme etc but werent aware that you cook your entire meal this way as well. I was a little unsure at first,... More
