Description: TOGETHER IS OUR SECRET INGREDIENT! The Melting Pot Restaurant is where fun is cooked up fondue style. Whether you’re celebrating a birthday, anniversary, long overdue date night or celebrating with a group. We are the premier fondue restaurant, centrally located on Westheimer, providing a casually elegant dining experience and an intimate atmosphere. The relaxing four-course experience begins with a cheese fondue prepared table side and fresh salads while your entrée pot heats up. You’ll simmer a variety of meats, seafood and vegetables in the cooking style of your choice. Each morsel is hot, fresh and delicious and all entrées are accompanied by an array of dipping sauces. Chocolate fondue is the finale, served with decadent dippers. Most make reservations for the four-course dining experience but more than a few have stopped by to satisfy that cheese fondue or chocolate craving. The Melting Pot also features a great wine list, specialty cocktails and martinis.

“Fondue = Two Hours of Bliss”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

My husband and I went here for our anniversary and loved the relaxing atmosphere, the never ending cheese fondue and the strawberries dipped in dark chocolate. Our server was very knowledgable about the menu and the wine. I highly recommend that you follow the "Big Night Out Four Course Dinner" because everything fits together so perfectly and it's not that much more expensive than ordering seperately. Also recommend to try the wine pairings that come with each course. Yum!

“Amazing Meal and Fun Experience”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

Our server, Travian was awesome. He made some great recommendations and we loved every bite of our meal. We had the four course classic. Our Cheese was the Fiesta. It was so amazing I was even eating the cauliflower, I hate cauliflower. I got the big night out salad with the strawberries and special walnut dressing. I could not stop raving about how good it was between the bites. We had the mojo cooking style, it was so zesty and yummy. And for the finale, the bananas foster was so cool to watch being prepared and it was scrumptious. My husband even devoured it and he isn't much on sweets. It was awesome and you really get a lot for your money. Can't wait to go back and try some of their other options!!

“My chocolate cravings--satisfied”
Reviewed July 28, 2012

Came here with my family for dessert. We got three dessert fondues: a dark chocolate, milk chocolate, and chocolate-peanut butter fondue. It was absolutely heavenly.
