“A great place to greet and eat”
Reviewed June 29, 2013

Visiting with a relative while in town, the pace and experience gives a lot of time to catch up on happenings. The staff was very patient with Fondu Novices, as well as their attention to detail with our order since one person had a sensitivity to certain foods. The manager personally came to the table a few times to ensure all was well and that we would have an enjoyable experience given the serving constraints. The staff, food and experience was great. I would definitely give this a place a try.

“Wonderful Dining Experience”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

I have been to The Melting Pot multiple times and have never been disappointed. When my husband and I first tried it several years ago, I didn't understand the fondue experience at all and wondered why we were paying so much money just to cook our own food. But dining at the Melting Pot isn't a normal night out....it's a experience. Fondue is so much fun and the food is delicious!! On top of that, it makes the meal a true event. My husband and I can linger over the four course meal for several hours, enjoying each other's company, good conversation, and (of course) the food! It's an enjoyable, relaxing experience every single time. Whether it's a date night or an evening with friends, we are never disappointed. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone. At least try it once just to say you did it.

“Fondue was delicious”
Reviewed March 28, 2013 via mobile

The food was good. Lee was one of the best servers we've ever had. He was attentive and professional. The price was appropriate for the courses. We were celebrating our sobs birthday.

“Something a Little Different”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

This is a nice place to go if you want to linger over dinner. There are many choices for each course so you can experience a variety of flavors and they can accomodate gluten free dining restrictions. Our particular waitress was fairly efficient but seemed a liitle awkward and unpolished. The portions are adequate but not ample. Just by nature of the process of fondue, this is not the place to go if you want to feel pampered, but it provides an interactive experience and opportunity for conversation, so it's probably a good choice for a first date or several couples out together. Average value for the price. We are glad to have tried it, but we're not likely to return.
