“Unique, great service and decent value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013 via mobile

We had the 4 course experience and thought the value was very good. We were definitely very full and the salads we had were also very good. Our favourite part was the cheese Appetizer course and the dessert which was the turtle fondue. It was fun and lots of food but the main course is frustrating as you are never quite sure if your meat is properly cooked. The potatoes never seemed to properly cook even though we left them in for a while. Maybe a timer would be great? Our server was really good. We didn't like the broth we got so he was completely pleased to switch it to the coq au vin. The decor is nice but parking is hard to find as there are a couple of great restaurants here. We would go back but for apps and dessert or maybe even a salad.

“Nice expensive experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013 via mobile

Good food it is about a 2 hr dining experience. Try the strawberry almond salad. Steak is a little tough. Be ready to spend some money. I would do the the 4 course experience.

“Its such a treat to go here!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

From when you enter until you leave this place makes you feel special. The servers are funny, friendly, and very knowledgeable about the menu. The best value is the 4 course meal. There are several types of cheese fondues, different broths you can have your meats done in and a tempting and delicious assortment of chocolates to have for your dessert. Yes, its a little on the pricey side but soooo worth every cent. We only go here for special occasions, which keeps it special.

“Love Melting Pot!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Melting Pot Orlando is awesome! Service is very attentive and our server actually hooked us up with my free birthday strawberries (which I was supposed to tell them about at the time of my reservation booking) but still made magic happen and I took home my free box of birthday strawberries! I love them and will continue to go back year after year!
