“It's an Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2012

We went to the North Melting Pot in Indy. The girls at the desk were nice. We were seated right away with a 7:20 reservation. We were celebrating my birthday and was so pleased to have a more provate booth in the back. There are several open areas for bigger groups and more intimate booths in the back of the place. If you want privacy, ask for a booth in the back. Our waitress was nice, but seemed to tell us what to do and then quiz us on what she said. (It kind of got on my nerves, a little condescending). We didn't know what to expect, but we thought overall, it was fun. Yes, you do cook your food at the table; BUT it only takes a couple of minutes to cook and the flavor was amazing. We tried everything! The meal we had started with ourdeurves with cheese (big assortment of food to dip). Then, a salad. Then the main course with potaotes, brocolli, and about 7 kinds of meat. Dessert was to die for! Manager came to see us. She was very nice and sent us champagne for my birthday. Meal with a few drinks was about $ 140 for 2. Would recommend for something different and a special occasion. We enjoyed the experience.

“The best date night dinner!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2012

By far this is hands down the best date night dinner. You do need to allow at least 2 hours (3 best) to enjoy this fondue. I suggest to do the big night out. It comes with a cheese, a salad, main course, and chocolate!! Plan on spending at least $100 butso worth it! Also you will pick your cooking style. I recomnend anything but fried. For my birthday my husband called for the special birthday dinner. They had roses waiting on the table alon with a card and a fun "news paper" from the day you were born. Very fun great food and a all time FAV!!

“50th Birthday”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2012

Husband surprised me for my birthday. I loved the experience and felt I wasn't rushed. It takes some time to experience the full adventure of this meal. Very pleased.

“Go for appetizers and desserts”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2012 via mobile

Apperizers and desserts are good. Save your money on the meal. All meal components were very disappointing. We didn't like any of it. We thought the appetizer was pretty good and the dessert was excellent.

“The Melting Pot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2012

Keep in mind that this is a true dining experience. It is intended to be enjoyed at your leisure and not a quick stop. The food is wonderful, and there are so few places to have a fondue experience. Don't miss their yin-yang dessert!
