Would not go for a birthday party. Servers not there. They said would rotate cheeses and they did not. Had to ask for drink refills. To high price for self cooking and not able to combine food.

I surprised the kids with a lunch at The Melting Pot today and what a treat it was! Eli our server was great with the kids and provided us with excellent service. We had a cheese and chocolate course and truly enjoyed our meal. Great place to treat yourself or a lived one for a fun time and great food!

My wife took me here for date night. We ordered the "Big Night out." This was our first time here. The staff was great. They walk us through the whole process. We really enjoyed ourselves. I wouldn't say this a place you go to eat all time, unless you are ready to drop 50 to 100 dollars each time for... More

I've been to the Melting Pot three times and I've yet to be disappointed. Keep in mind, this is more of a dining experience than a quick dinner at Applebees. This past visit was for our anniversary. We were there for about 2.5 hours for four courses. We tried the Queen City Special with Wild Berry Chocolate Fondue for dessert... More

I've wanted to come to the melting pot for sometime. My boyfriend made our reservation for 645pm since they were booked up until then. We arrived early and had a round of drinks at the bar. At 645 we were told our table is ready. My food was good, but I'd only return for the drinks and dessert. You do... More

My husband and I went to the Melting Pot for a "date night". We loved the entire process of food preparation and cooking. Our waiter was very attentive. He explained to us the cooking styles for different types of meat we had. The food was fresh, well spiced, simply fantastic! The souses..oh the souses..I am getting hungry even from thinking...

My girlfriends and I visited the Melting Pot for Girls Night Out. It included cheese, salad and dessert. All three courses were absolutely delicious. I'm always amazed at how full I am when I leave the Melting Pot. The server was nice, my only complaint is that we were not offered the drink specials ($5).

Everything was wonderful. The service was awesome and the food was great. The hardest part was choosing only one thing from the desert menu. The yin yang was yummy!!!!

We celebrated our wedding anniversary here, and thoroughly enjoyed our meal. I like the pacing of the meal, where nothing is forced, and you need to take your time. We had all four courses, and loved everything. And even better, they were running a special of four courses for $27.50 each. That's a very good value for all the great... More

You've heard of singing for your supper? Well, at the Melting Pot, you actually cook your own supper! It's a fun experience and guided by the expert service staff. We celebrated a birthday event at Melting Pot and ordered multiple courses, including dessert. In a two-top booth, during the duration of the dining experience, it got a little too warm... More
