Took my two 15 year old granddaughters. It was a wonderful place to go for a multigenerational meal. Lots of fun. Food was good and the girls enjoyed the experience

Very dark and quiet, as per usual for the melting pot, but this one had quirky little rooms so everything seemed very intimate. I didn't like our first table, it was out in the open in basically a walk way and asked to be moved. They accommodated us immediately. A little bummed out that they no longer have their big... More

Went to the Melting Pot for dessert for a friends birthday back in April. We all had an amazing time and the food was delicious! The chocolate paired with the fruit was the perfect combination! We got the 2 person fondue and we spilt it between 3 people and it was plenty of food. Our server wasn't around a lot... More

Yep, it's pricey as others say...we spent $196 (including tax, tip, and a few drinks) for three people for the 4-course fondue. I hadn't been to a Melting Pot before so it was a novelty and I enjoyed it a lot. The cheese fondue was delicious, and the seafood trio that I ordered was filling. The chocolate dessert fondue was...

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......
