Description: The Melting Pot Restaurant is where fun is cooked up fondue style. Romantic for Couples and Great in a Group. Our Ahwatukee restaurant is easily accessible from I-10. Take the "E Ray Road" exit off the I-10 and travel 2 miles west into the Ahwatukee Foothills. The modern yet warm casually elegant atmosphere sets the mood for a relaxing evening. The leisurely paced four-course experience begins with a cheese fondue prepared table side. A fresh salad follows while your entrée pot heats up. You’ll simmer a variety of tantalizing meats, seafood and vegetables. Each morsel is hot, fresh and delicious and all entrées are accompanied by an array of dipping sauces to add to the flavorful fun. Chocolate fondue is the finale, all served with decadent dippers. Most make reservations for the four-course dining experience but more than a few have stopped by to satisfy that cheese fondue or chocolate craving. Hand crafted cocktails and great wine list.

“Can't wait to go back! ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

My husband and I went to the Melting Pot for our one year anniversary. It was both our first time around, so we weren't sure what to expect. We had the most amazing time! Everything was great. We did the 4 course experience. Food was absolutely delicious! Our server, Brad was so courteous, helpful and efficient. We appreciated the manager coming by the table to make sure everything was going good. He made us feel welcomed. We would definitely recommend this place! Thanks again Melting Pot for a great experience!

“Very unique experience - good for first date”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2013

Been a few time here and overall it does have great fondue !. Cool presentations and very unique but after a few times it looses its charm.

The full course meal for 2 are great for a date or special night out but very pricy often $125 for 2

So for locals not a place to go back more than once or twice.

Depends what you like . Not fine dinning but cool to experience it .

“Service not consistent with prices”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

We celebrated a birthday dinner at the Melting Pot since we'd received a gift certificate, but we won't be back. We waited in the front of the restaurant for 10 minutes before anyone greeted us. Despite the fact that they had many open tables at Sunday dinner, the hostess would not seat us for 20 minutes without a reservation. No one left as we waited by the bar. The main course went well, but when we tried to order a single portion of dessert, we ended up getting charged $10 per person. For $10 desserts, the restaurant should be able to pay a hostess to greet you.

“Yummy, fun, and great service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

We LOVE the Melting Pot. The food, service and specials are Amazing. We recommend the four course meal and a nice bottle or two of wine (house is great).

Look for coupons. Great place for a girls night out or a date night.

Thank you Lori for making our night special and fun!
