We had a great meal at the Melting Pot! The food was fresh and delicious! Cooking the food ourselves was a lot of fun!

We had the Traditional Swiss cheese fondue, the standard broth, the mojo broth (we preferred this one) and the dark chocolate fondue for dessert. The vegetarian entree was delicious!

We went for dessert in the middle of the afternoon. We ordered the milk chocolate fondue. It came with small pieces of cheesecake, pound cake, marshmallows, rice krispy treats, bananas, strawberries and brownies for dipping. It was all very good. My daughter really enjoyed herself. The chocolate was excellent. It was best after it had some time to warm up on the table.

The service was attentive without being intrusive.

We enjoyed it and plan on returning.

We were just here today April 12th we waited for about 10 minutes for someone to come and seat us....no one ever came the place had no one in it at all and this was at 1pm so they had been open for an hour already. We ultimately ended up going next door to ruby Tuesdays where we were greater as soon as we entered. So over all as you can tell it was a very bad first time experience

As the first time visiting Melting Pot, we sought the advise of our server. She was very knowledgeable and guided us through the options on the menu. We settled for the 4 course, a cheese fondue, salad, a mixed meat fondue and finally a chocolate fondue. All the food was excellent and served at a pace that allowed us to take our time and enjoy the moment. The server constantly came back to see how we were doing, sometimes asking and other times just making eye contact as she walked by without disturbing us too much. There was plenty of food without being too much and the way it was served was clean and neat. The cost of the meal with drinks was just over $60 which compared well with other local specialty restaurants. While I did hear some say it was expensive considering you cook your own food, that was a big part of the experience

I have been here before for dinner and it was delicious, but will not go back because of my last experience. Simply went to the bar to get some drinks and cheese fondue with my boyfriend, but after being completely ignored by the bartender, without so much as a "hello" for over 10 minutes, we decided to leave and go to the Standard.
