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 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

Went there with the family. Good food and a nice experience overall but can be very pricy so more suited for a special occasion.

This was my first time at a Melting Pot. My friend had been there last year and highly recommended it. The server was very patient at explaining how everything worked. We chose the "Fondue by you" entree which as a choice of three meats/fish/poultry/pork. I chose salmon, shrimp and pork. It was accompanied with mushrooms, zucchini and red potatoes. The... More

I love the Melting Pot - But not at this location. in order to like it, you have to know what you are going into and what to expect. If the server does not explain it fully to new customers, there is always a sense of disappointment and many people vow to not return. Read the reviews. And that is... More
