The Melting Pot is an excellent restaurant for a special meal. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. It's definitely pricey with leisurely service, but we knew that and enjoyed our 2-hour meal. It's rather dark inside and I don't recommend it for...More

This spot I would highly recommend for adults. There is excellent martinis and fondue. My sister especially loves the apple martini. Food is great however service takes very long. I recommend you finish with the Turtle or Tuxedo.

The Melting Pot Restaurant is where fun is cooked up fondue style. Romantic for Couples and Great in a Group. Our Ahwatukee restaurant is easily accessible from I-10. Take the "E Ray Road" exit off the I-10 and travel 2 miles west into the Ahwatukee Foothills. The modern yet warm casually elegant atmosphere sets the mood for a relaxing evening. The leisurely paced four-course experience begins with a cheese fondue prepared table side. A fresh salad follows while your entrée pot heats up. You’ll simmer a variety of tantalizing meats, seafood and vegetables. Each morsel is hot, fresh and delicious and all entrées are accompanied by an array of dipping sauces to add to the flavorful fun. Chocolate fondue is the finale, all 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. Hand crafted cocktails and great wine list.
