Poor, poor customer service by Bill the manager. First we are told it is happy hour and order a pot of cheese, drinks and a couple other items. The server apologizes afterward and says it is not happy hour, but the manager has agreed to charge us the happy hour prices for the first round of drinks. We decide to... More

First i will say the service was very good and attentive and informative. The quality of the food was also very good. Now you have to like cooking your own food in a pot of oil. Is quite hard to tell when your food is done and it is quite dark which added to the problem. Portions are small and... More

I've been visiting this location for over 10 years. I'm not sure what happened here, but I'm 100% sure I will not be returning. The service has declined, the prices have increased, and the portions have grown smaller. Such a shame.

My family chose to celebrate our daughter's birthday at The Melting Pot, and it turned out to be a wise decision. We elected to go for the full course meal. It started with the cheese fondue. Next came the salad course which was followed by the broth fondue. The meal ended with a chocolate extravaganza. Afterward we agreed that we... More

Very nice staff. Haven't been to The Melting Pot in years. Got a gift certificate from my kids and tickets to go to the Count Basie Theater in Red Bank, NJ. Loved the dinner. Got the 4 course meal plus another salad. They don't rush you. Would come again.

Booked a table for 8pm. We arrived at the restaurant just before 8 and informed the desk we were there to be told that they were just sorting our table. 8.35pm comes around and we are still sitting by the doors, waiting for our table. Nearly 40 minutes of waiting we decided to go say something to be told that... More

Tonight I had made a reservation to celebrate a special occasion/birthday. I had informed both the hostess and our server (and later on also the manager) that we were celebrating a birthday. We were seated right away and informed our server it was our first time eating at The Melting Pot. Both my friend and I had looked at the... More

My husband and I tried the Melting Pot for the first time tonight, and there were some pros as well as cons. We didn't make a reservation (two days after Valentine's, on a holiday) and didn't expect it to be busy -- which is wasn't -- but when we told the hostess we didn't have a reservation, she said they...

We took a group from work here for a celebration party. It is good for a group to interact over the meal as you work together to share and eat fondue together. Pros- the food tastes great. Have the chocolate dessert, you don't need the salad. The group had lots of fun. Cons- Really expensive. We received the wrong appetizers... More
