I've wanted to try The Melting Pot for a long time and finally had the chance in Boise. I had a four course meal and there was plenty to fill up any appetite. The cheese and chocolate were excellent but the meat course was good but not amazing, which was what I was hoping for. Overall it was fun, but... More

Unique fine dining experience. Great place for a special occasion but casual enough and family friendly. Not a place if you're in a hurry though. Recommend the four course meal which starts with a cheese course including breads and vegetables to dip into your choice of several melted cheese selections. Then a choice of salads (the Apple Bacon Spinach was... More

Her name was Darcy and she checked on us just the right amount without bothering us. She was helpful with the menu and just... More

Love the food and the service is tops. I finally found one thing I wasn't thrilled with, but it was my fault. My cousin loves hot and was cooking his spicy food in my broth. Everything then tasted spicy. Just a warning for those like me that want to taste their food not someone elses. Hahaha.

Another couple, my wife, and I had dinner there for the first time the other night. The food was good. The experience was great. Our waitress was charming, helpful, and patient. The food was certainly not normal restaurant fare and though the portions seemed small, we split three meals and still had food to take home. We were there almost... More

It was our first visit to The Melting Pot. We had an excellent server who explained everything in detail. The quality of the meat was great and everything was delicious. We will definitely be going back.

This has quickly become my favorite place to eat. Unfortunately, it's too expensive to eat their as frequently as we would like, but my husband and I do take advantage of special occasions.

We've come here many times for special occasions... birthdays, anniversary, and graduations. Enjoy the experience but you MUST stay for the dessert. Yes, everything tastes better with chocolate... dark, milk, or smore's flavor! Bring old or new friends, as the experience of dipping stuff Wu h metal sticks will build that relationship!
