We visited as a party of ten for my nephew's birthday. We also preordered online as a courtesy. Our experience could.not have been more positive. The restaurant is spotless. Alex & Maggie were amazing servers. The food was fresh and delicious. We highly recommend the...More

I was sharing an anniversary dinner with my girlfriend, who was new to the "fondue" experience and was looking forward to the different style of eating. We chose the Asian Fusion and the Classic mixed entree which included several meat and seafood pieces. Everything was...More

We arrived at the restaurant early and it was empty and we still had to wait to be seated for over 25 minutes, couldn't believe it. The food was shocking and extremely over priced considering you have to cook it yourself. I found the whole...More

This is one of our favorite restaurants. We spend most of our family celebrations here. We usually only have the cheese, salad and chocolate. The entrees are excellent, you must need to bring a serious appetite with you. The staff is great and very accommodating....More

I used to love the Melting Pot and fondue for a change of pace...but it is simply too expensive anymore. Even the children's menu (10 and under) at $27.95 is too overpriced. My visit included myself and two children (ages 7&11). The bill with tax...More

Kristina: I am not sure how your bill could have come to $180 for yourself and 2 children. Even if you ordered the whole experience for both children ($27.95 each), instead of the children's entree ($10.95 each). That would imply that your meal cost $120....More

I rarely rate a restaurant this poorly - as a Catering Manager I understand about certain hiccups and such with service and food. Friday, August 5th we visited this location. Although the food was overpriced, we had a nice server and the food was good....More

Jackie- I am sorry you were disappointed. The problem wasn't that we wouldn't honor the Groupon. We do it all the time for folks who forget to tell us when they make the reservation. The problem was that you didn't order the Groupon meal. You...More

Come hungry with money! Fun dining activity--cook your own meal fondue style. Not a quick eat and run dinner. We had the four course--cheese fondue appetizer, salad, main meal and dessert fondue. Excellent staff. We weren't seated until our entire party was present. Bar service...More

I love fondue, and anything with melted cheese, which this place specializes in and does extraordinarily. And then leave stuffed, bloated and feeling guilty. No doubt all of its offerings are unhealthy but scrumptious. The challenge is to control yourself.

The service, management and price are enough reasons to avoid this location entirely. Note upfront: we've been to Melting Pots before (in Somerville, NJ and Baltimore) and had good experiences, so the problems are specific to this location. A second disclosure: this was a celebration...More

I am sorry you were disappointed with your experience. I am not sure what happened with your cheese dippers. The vegetables are cut fresh daily and the bread is baked daily on premises. I appreciate your letting us know that the portioning of the dippers...More
