Kaleb was the absolute best server! He took the time to "care" about our preferences! Awesome service! Food was delish!

To start, had a 930 reservation and got there at 928 and the host said it would be a little while they clean the table. I thought reservations were for a reason. Then as far as the food was concerned, it was news to us that at $110 we were going to be cooking our own food. I was use... More

We were thrilled with the choices that the 4 course experience gave us. The best fondue ever! I loved the selection of 6 sauces with the main course. The ying and yang dessert chocolate was wonderful.

Had a great dinner with the family. The food was good, but the experience was even better. It's pricey, but we left there very full and happy as we laughed the whole meal. It forces you to engage as a family (calculating cooking times, discussing different sauce and batter combinations, etc) Even my cranky teenager loved it. Great way to... More

Fondue is fun, and the Melting Pot conceptualizes it in a truly articulate way. I look forward to dining here, frequently on special occasions. This time was for a girls night out with two friends from out of town. We made our reservation using Open Table. They have a space for special requests. We jokingly asked to be greeted with... More

Food tastes bland, overpriced food, but friendly staff. Dinner for two was $110. Did I mention the food was bland? For the price, I was disappointed with the no taste, small portion of food, and the high cost. Won't return because that could have paid for my grocery bill.

Fine dining atmosphere. Friendly staff and servers. We were actually celebrating a birthday, a wedding anniversary and a new job. It was our first time. They treated us well. The server and the guests actually do the cooking at the table. Hot cook top and cooking pots probably make this a place NOT for the young ones. It is a... More

Oh my gosh, if you haven't tried this restaurant, you don't know what you are missing. First experience at this restaurant and I will definitely return in the near future. The entire meal, we chose a 4-course option, is basically prepared at your table with you in charge as chef more or less! The fondue is set-up and ingredients are... More

Description
At The Melting Pot, fondue is more than a signature dish. It's a culinary tradition that we honor every day - and have spent 40 years perfecting. And thanks to our dedication to our craft, that tradition is still going strong and attracting new fans today. Fondue is more than just a meal. It's an experience. And that's what The Melting Pot does best. Whether you're celebrating a birthday, anniversary, a long overdue date night, or celebrating with a group, The Melting Pot Restaurant is perfect for any occasion. Customize your visit with a four-course dining experience including cheese fondue, salad, entree and dessert. Or, come by for fondue cheese paired with that perfect glass of wine from our extensive selection. That's not to say, we haven't had more than a few stop by to satisfy that chocolate craving after a movie.
