Good experience to eat

It was first time for me to eat fondue. The foods are so nice. But most of all, the service is very good. The staffs are very kind and understandable. And this menu is so good to eat in cold winter. The price is little bit expensive but it is OK.

This is a fun restaurant. The seating was private and cozy. The service was awesome. Our server was knowledgeable and friendly. She walked us through how everything works and we really enjoyed the hands on experience. The cheese sauce was delicious. We each had a four course meal that included a cheese fondue appetizer, a salad, a choice of three... More

I have always liked Melting Pot and this visit reminded me why I enjoy it. The concept is great while the food is outstanding and the service is terrific. The ambiance is quite nice and the prices, while not cheap, are worth it. We were in town for a conference and went to Melting Pot for dinner as a group.... More

Our fondue was delicious. The staff greeted us and the manager stopped by to make sure everything was fine during our meal. The quality of the entrée and the sauces was excellent. The cheese fondue was made to our liking. Fun dinner.

We went for a bachelorette party. It was fun and the food was ok. My only issue is that it costs a lot for me to make my own food. Service was fantastic and the people were very friendly and accommodating. I the desert was the best part. I don't think I'll be going back though!

Good food, fun way to get together with friends or a girls night out. Don't go if you are in a hurry. It's takes a lot of time to have a meal here. Also you cook your own meal in the fondue. It's work but so much fun. It is a bit pricey also. We were there around 3 hours... More

Our party of 4 arrived early for our reservation and luckily were able to be seated. (It was the Patriots/Colts game so the restaurant was less crowded than the previous time we were there.) Because we decided to do the full 4-course dinner of cheese fondue, salad, meat fondue, and chocolate fondue, we knew that we'd be there a while... More

We had 4 of us in our party and we came at 6:00 and did not get our check until 9:00. The service was extremely slow. Have been to several Melting Pots around the country and this one has definitely been the worst!

My daughter and her friend have eaten at one of the Melting Pot Restaurants a few times and loved the experience. She took me to the one in Providence. Place was odd on the underside of a downtown mall. It was a Tuesday night so not busy- seemed large but broken into several small dining areas snaking all over. (discovery... More
