Surprised my wife by taking her here for her birthday dinner and overall everything tasted fantastic! They have rolling carousel of messages they put up on a tv in the front lobby. They had a nice birthday greeting for her on there so that was nice! You get a 4 course meal here for around 50$ or so depending on if you upgrade any of the cooking styles, meats or get the charcuterie board. This was our first time here, so we started the night off with the fondue that was calling us, the Spinach Artichoke fondue. It was fantastic. They give you breads, cheese, fruits, veggies and nuts to dip in it. The second course was a salad. I had the Caesar which was very good. Third course are the meats. The meat is served raw and cut into bite size pieces. You will choose from several different types of broth to cook it in. Even if you don't love cooking your own meat when you go out to eat, it's not a huge deal breaker considering the most it took to cook a piece of beef was like a minute and a half. I got mostly beef and fish so even if it didn't cook to well done, it was fine as that's how I prefer it anyway. The jalapeño filet mignon had to be my favorite of all the meats!! Ahhh it was so good! We ended up finishing off the night stuffed to the brim with our dessert fondue that is the 4th course. We were debating between the dark chocolate and s'mores fondue, but ended up going with the s'mores since my wife loves anything s'mores. It was GREAT! I can't imagine that you could go wrong with any of the dessert fondues here though. They all looked absolutely incredible! My only negative critique of this place is does seem a bit expensive for you having to cook your own meat. I'm not huge on it, but like I said, they do it to keep the 'dipping' experience cohesive. It was a great place to eat, though! Can't go wrong going here. Just be ready to pay a bit more.

Nicholas,

First off Happy Birthday to your wife and thank you for choosing us to celebrate. Sorry for some of the pricing issues you experienced and we are always changing our menu up for more ways to experience the meal other than just the 4-course option. Alot of time coming in for Cheese and Chocolate seems to be a favorite and you get to try the best of both worlds. Hope to see you again soon.

My wife, daughter and I had a ton of fun and food at this restaurant last night. Started with the Alpine Cheese fondue. It was sinfully good! Shared filet, chicken, shrimp, salmon and more and just the cooking experience at the table made it worthwhile. The meat itself was good, but not great. I would choose the waitress choice for cooking sauce next time! Lauren was our waitress and she was magnificent!!

The strawberry almond salad was perfect. Then came the chocolate fondue dessert. We had the original and it was really good!!

A great experience!

We are frequent diners at the Las Vegas restaurant and just moved to the SLC area and was glad that there is a Melting Pot close by. We were seated really fast for a weekend night and our server was right there to check-in on us to see if we knew how the restaurant works. We told him that we've been to the Vegas restaurant and were considered VIP diners there. The server was really nice but he got busy with a bigger table so we didn't see much of him at times so two managers were at our table to help out. The food was excellent as always!!!!!!!!

We loved the experience and food. I will say that for 2 people doing the 4 course meal (they strongly suggest you should do the 4 course meal) it was $150. Nice waiters and great food.

The Melting Pot was just great fun... it had many choices of dips and dipping food.. from the main course to desert. Plan to just relax and take your time to enjoy the best and healthy food in town. Take friends... the more the merrier.
