“sooo pricey.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2012

I LOVED this place. It was all I dreamed it would be: fun and romantic. It was all my fiance' was afraid it would be: crazy expensive! I can't decide if it's worth it or not. For the 2 of us with two glasses of wine each it was something like $120! It's certainly not something that we can do every weekend, but I would recommend it just for the experience.

“Only Okay”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2012

This was a fun experience with the fondue but for the price there so many other places in the area where the food is better and experience is more fun. It is fun to experience once but not to go back.

I like the different dining option The Melting Pot provides. A fun place to go with a group and try lots of different items and cooking options.

“Decent, but going downhill”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2012

The fondue is always decent here, both the cheese and dessert. The salads are always good, but a bit heavy on the dressing. Overall, this place is going downhill...you used to be able to get free refills on dessert dippers (not all, but marshmallows, fruit, etc) and now they charge you another $10 for a new plate. There are never enough dippers to finish your pot of dessert fondue, I think they charge enough that giving you a few extra marshmallows and a banana isn't going to break the bank.
