the Melting Pot is a fun interactive restaurant but the portions are small and it's terribly over priced for what you get.

Well, I was expecting to be worried about double dipping with friends as we hovered over cheese or chocolate. Instead, we were treated to a very unusual and fun experience with all sorts of foods, sauces, techniques, etc. A little pricey, but a great escape from the usual.

If your willing to write-off the expense as dinner and a show, it might be worthwhile. I found it a bit pricey, even after the Groupon discount which since it was a weekend was ~30%. The weekday discount ~42% would have definitely pushed the economics in a better direction. Our server had a great table-side manner, he was busy though... More

We've eaten here numerous times and never had a bad experience. The Weyerbacher Beer Dinner was definitely one of our favorites! It was fun pairing beers with the different fondues. I would definitely go again!

This was my first time there and I have to say I was not impressed. We had all of the courses except dessert. The food was so bland and boring. There was no seasoning on any of it! It was also a little odd to me that we had to actually cook the food ourselves. Had it been precooked the... More

The melting pot is a fondue based restaurant where melted cheese, broth and even melted chocolate is heated on a cook top at your table. A full four course dining experience includes cheese fondue, salad, entree fondue and chocolate fondue. This is the best way to go to get the full experience but can be a little pricey as well...

I have been to The Melting Pot in another city, so I came to this one with expectations, which were definitely not met. Maybe it was because we wrre two females, maybe it was because we only got the cheese fondue, salad and chocolate fondue (no entree), or... all i know is that the waitress basically was not attentive--even had...

What an awesome and unique experience..The service was excellent,the food was 10/10 and so much fun selecting the fondue's together! It was so nicely paced as well,we were there for 2.5 hours which was perfect! Not a place to go if you are rushed for time. Will definetely be going back.

We have been here on two occasions with friends and family. We have been impressed with the fondue (including vegetarian options!) and service both times.
