Went on a date night with my wife. Place was packed, so it pretty popular! Sat at the bar and ate our fondue meal. Kudos to the bartender who was solo, mixing drinks for servers and trying to cover meal service at the rail. We did the four course offering. The food was good and it was something unique. I thought it was a bit expensive for the food we had, and we had drinks so that's never cheap. I'm sure it isn't cheap to operate a fondue based restaurant and keep customers safe (raw meat, make sure they don't cross contaminate, etc.) Like the title says, it is a novelty. We probably won't go back for a while unless a special occasion. Would be fun with a 4-6 person group of foodie friends, again something different.

We had our first visit to The Melting Pot last year, but I did not write a review at that time, although the experience was really enjoyable. Last week we returned and I could not forget to review the restaurant again. It was for sure a pleasant dinner with a highly professional service. We had the 4 course starting with an outstanding Cheese Fondue, then a salad followed by the Meat/Chicken/Sausage Fondue and to finalize the Chocolate Fondue. All of them were very tasteful! Also, we really like the experience to prepare the dish at our own table. The atmosphere is nice, but I think there is room for improvement. We had a table close to the kitchen this time and it was kind of noisy. However, in our first visit we got a private room, which was super romantic. If you're a Fondue lover leaving or visiting Indy, you should definitely give The Melting Pot a try!

We visited The Melting Pot last Saturday for dinner. We had a great time. The menu had changed a little since our last visit but the waitress helped us out. The food was great, the service was good and as always the atmosphere was relaxing.

Believe the hype. This place was great. We got the four course meal and it was about $100 total. The cheese and salad course were good, but the meat and desert course were divine. The meat was high quality and flavorful. If you can't afford the four course price just go get desert! It's in an odd location, but the interior is classy.
