Such a fun, unique restaurant. Although it seems like a fancier place, which it absolutely is, we took our 4 year old daughter with us for a fun lunch and it was very family friendly. It's not a cheap place by any means, so be ready to pay up. If you wanted to try to keep it more affordable, do... More

I took my daughter for a college graduation celebration dinner and was very pleased with our food and overall dining experience. The food was delicious. They even placed a scroll congratulating her on her graduation on the table. The waiter was attentive, fun and friendly and the manager stopped by our table to give his congrats to my daughter.

We were there on Sunday around 1:00 pm in the afternoon and there were very few people there. Service was good, menu variety was outstanding. We had the four course meal; allow a couple of hours to enjoy the experience.

Great way to celebrate a birthday & fun place for children. More about the experience than the food. Overall the food is mediocre. Our favorite courses were the cheese and chocolate.

My wife and I were on an anniversary trip and we decided to try some different places to eat. One that she found was the Melting Pot. We love to do fondue at home so that that this would be a cool experience. The food was very good and the place was clean. We had the choice of a private... More

Made a quick reservation on a Monday night, was quickly seated in a very comfortable and semi private booth. We have been here before but it has been several years so our server was very helpful and quite entertaining. We forgot this is a Dining experience and takes about 2 hours to complete a four course meal. No problem, it... More

Have wanted to come here but never seemed to get there until now. Service was great and as new to here the waiter explained the process excellently. The menu was easy to understand and had good offerings. The full experience will take some time but so worth it. I got the meat lovers and the other people with me got... More

Couples night, we had so much fun. Our waiter was great. The food was good and the atmosphere was nice. The only down side was how long it took to eat with 4 people. We only had 1 fondue pot so we had to agree on the sauces. I suggest not going with someone who has different taste in food... More

Great decor and friendly staff. Nice wine selection. The experience is unique and fun. Yes, by cooking everything in one pot the flavors run together & for what it cost [about $40-$50] per person - I would rather go to a nice steak house. Overall a good time and experience - it's just something I would want to repeat very... More

I was nervous to find out we had to cook our entrees but it turned out really well. Scott was our server and he was AWESOME. He did a great job of explaining the options and styles.
