My kids have been big fans of the Melting Pot forever and always want to go there to celebrate birthdays. We've always shelled out the money because it was an awesome experience and a decent value for the price. On this most recent visit, I was disappointed that the portions have gone way down and it's just not worth it.... More

We went last year in September and had a female server who was just mediocre. We enjoyed our time being it was a first experience. We returned this September just last night and was blown away. The food was good as we had expected but our server was great! Alex was readily to answer questions, drinks were refilled quick, he... More

Had a wonderful experience at the Melting Pot in Gaithersburg. Don't let the location turn you off. It took us 8 years to try it but we'll be back! Allow time to enjoy your evening, I'd say 2 hours is just about right if you plan to do the 4 course dinner which I highly recommend. The kids really enjoyed... More

We have been coming to Melting Pot for years and with a Groupon coupon, it makes it a little more affordable. With a bottle of wine, cheese appetizer fondue, salads, two entrees and the chocolate desert, we paid $90 plus tip. We liked that they have combinations where you can pick the three types of meat you would like versus... More

Recently went for Ladies Night at this location. Our waitress was talkative and did a great job explaining the menu and experience to us. The manager checked in with our table to ensure all was well.

My daughter and I visited here Sunday late afternoon around 4:00 after our trip to Washington DC from Pennsylvania. I saw a groupon for this location and it saved me about $20-30. Our original reservation was for 4:45 and I called knowing we'd arrive a bit earlier, and it was changed with no hesitation. Our server Blake was spectacular, he... More

After our last, recent visit, we were not happy about going back, but it was for a family birthday. I'm happy to report that the service which was terrible on our last visit was very good this time. Most of the food was still pedestrian, except for the salads which were pretty good.
