This place was amazing. We had great service from start to finish! They didnt have cherry coke but the bar tender made his won version which we loved! The food was to die for! Best cheese fondue in america! We had cheddar cheese fondue, a main course which had a varitey of meats seasoned, a salad and a ever so yummy dessert fondue of melted chocholate, caramel and candied pecans, which we dipped strawberries, banannas, marshmellows cheese cake and pound cake in! Everything was AMAZING!!!! You def have to go try this. A little pricey but so worth every penny!

The portions were smaller than in other Melting Pots; the service, though polite, was subpar for a restaurant of this "caliber." We had to ask multiple times for refills, etc. at on point, the server vacated for 20+ minutes.

Pricey, cramped seating, even in those tiny booths they wedge you into. We were warned about the poor service before going in, so we were prepared, but our waitress, Leanne, seemed fine. She was very attentive and patient explaining everything in detail. I could only wonder how many tables each server had to cover while spending the amount of time explaining as they do. It did prove to be a long dinner, great for young love out on a first date wanting to stretch the night out, but for someone who routinely goes out to eat, it takes a long time from start to finish. Very pricey and they push the four course specials at $40.00 a pop. They place doesn't ventilate as well as it should, so you leave there rubbing your eyes, the smell of cooking oil on your clothes and wanting to stop and wash your face. For those of us that wear contact lenses, it is a bit irritating. Would we return, probably not, but we did have to try it. I think this restaurant may have a short life in this mall, because the rents are extremely high there and they never seem to be filling the tables when I walk by there.

The service on a Saturday afternoon was pleasant, the server was congenial. Fondue dipping was something out of the past for us, and we really enjoyed ourselves. Delicious cheese fondue selections with unlimited veggie and bread "dippers". You can "4 course" your experience or just wing it with a cheese fondue appetizer and skip right to the chocolate dessert dipping experience. We included 2 different fresh salad choices and then didnt have room for the dessert! But it was lunch, so cant wait to come for dinner next time! Lunch expense was reasonable, but it may get a little pricey for a full 4 course extravaganza. I think its a great special occasion kind of eating experience though!!!
