“Wonderful restaurant for socializing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

My husband and I met up with three other couples (all with tween-age kids) for a kids-free dinner. This was the first time dining at The Melting Pot for several of the couples, ourselves included. What a great place to visit with friends! The table we were at was very condusive to lively conversation all around, not just with the two or three people seated directly beside you or opposite you.

Our waiter, Will, was exceptionally attentive and engaging, without being intrusive. The food was of a very good quality and the "melting pots" quite a treat. A little pricey, but well worth it for a special occassion.

“Fabulous for a celebration!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

Friends took me here for a birthday celebration. The food was delicious, the wait staff extremely attentive, the drinks great, and they made us feel like we were the only customers. because of the price, will reserve this for special occasions but had a great meal.

“Love the fun of fondue but they are scaling back on portions”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

You don't get as much bang for your buck anymore, but it's still a favorite spot for special celebrations. Try the flaming turtle fondue!
