The food at the melting pot is so good! You get a cheese course and dinner and dessert! All in founde form! The place is really nice went there while my grandparents were in town and they all loved it. They said although it is expensive they felt that it was worth it. Be sure to make reservations! That is the number 1 tip that I have at this place!

Located in an old brick kiln, this location has a lot of atmosphere. The food was very good. We did a four course meal including cheese fondue for an appetizer, salads, a land and sea fondue for entree and a chocolate fondue for desert. We ordered 2 kids entrees and shared our cheese fondue and desert with them and had plenty. We might consider not ordering an entree next time and adding a portion to the cheese and desert. Service was fair. Pricing was a little high except that this is a major investment in building and low table turnover in a major city. Dinner lasted about two hours and ten minutes and we were rushing a little to get back on the road. Make sure you have the time. Would reccomend reservations.

Showed up at 5:30 on Saturday night without reservations on Father's day weekend. Got sat at the bar as no tables were available. The bartender was FANTASTIC and we got full table service. Amazing quality food in HUGE quantities. Have been to other fondue places and this one tops them all. Home run.

I knew it would be fun because it is fondu!
But it was really good and special.

I am so sorry I cannot remember our waitress. She was fabulous. Danielle?? I am so sorry. It was freezing cold in there was the only complaint....We told or waitress and she had the manager right out. He agreed, turned up the heater and the rest of the night was magic!

We had a reservation so we were seated promptly. Host and hostess were very willing to answer questions. Server was informative and prompt. Food experience was unique and tasty but not worth the $92 per couple for 4 course dinner. Enjoyed cooking various meats and vegetables of the main course. Quantity for veggies was a little skimpy, for meat too. Should be careful in handling of raw meats as you cook it yourself in a hot broth in a pot in center of table. It was fun.
