This was the 4th time I have been to this Melting Pot location, and this time we took a chance and went with our 3 children, celebrating our son's 10th birthday, at his request, here. We booked an early reservation (5:15 ) on Opentable.com and it worked out perfectly for us. My son was excited to see a birthday card on the table addressed to him by name, from the Melting Pot! The food was great, and I like the new menu set up and options. We inquired and were happy to learn that they have a kids portion (at a lower price) for the children, which was a nice savings. My husband and I got the 4 course dinner, and the kids got the childrens plate, and there was plenty of food for all of us. They children were able to share the cheese and chocolate fondue from our meals. The staff was wonderful to our three boys and they felt very "fancy" having a special dinner celebration here. Our waiter was top notch, and very attentive. It was a nice advantage to sit at a table with two burners as we were able to have two different options for each fondue course. This place is not inexpensive, however with the new menu options (and the kids portion) it didn't break the bank for our special celebration.

The food was quite tasty and the dipping of breads, veggies, meats, and desserts in different sauces, broths, and chocolate is fun and tasty however, you leave hungry and a bit on the expensive side. I still recommend trying it.

Food not great and OVERPRICED. I didn't like it at all for the price you pay. Way too much money for fondue of any kind.

Its part of a chain-which in this case, is very very good. We've been to several locations in different states and each and every served the same high quality food. Fun way to share a meal with a date or even a group. They have full 4 course meal options, as well as a large a la carte selection. The wine and drink list is very comprehensive and the wait staff is attentive, knowledgable and friendly. Go very hungry though because you'll leave there stuffed!

A little on the expensive side if you order the full dinner, but well worth it. Love love love the cheese fondu. Chocolate fondu is to die for. We usually have some sort of seafood as the main course. Always fresh.
