I was invited here by my mom. I didn't care for it. I did the part meal thing. Slow, lighting too dark, and my glass was empty pretty much the while time. I'm glad I got to try The Melting Pot, but I wouldn't try it again.

The food is fresh and fun to prepare; very good service; a bit pricey. They have lots of choices; the cheddar fondue is our favorite cheese fondue; all the salads are very good. For the entree, I like the salmon cooked in the standard vegetable broth. They have a children's portion for $9.95. I wouldn't bring a very young child... More

My favorite part of the meals at Melting Pot are the cheese fondue and the dessert. The meal is good, just think the dinner is expensive for what you get and the food is easy to overcook and often flavors get mixed in the cooking. My favorite dessert is the Turtle dark chocolate. A perfect assortment of desserts including marshmallows,... More

Exceptional choice for a romantic evening. Truly an experience to remember. Very quality food offered. When it is delivered it does not look like much--so deceiving--we couldn't eat it all..

My wife and I recently visited this location for our 9th wedding anniversary. We brought along our 6 year old daughter thinking that she would really enjoy parts of the meal. The restaurant called me the day before to confirm my reservation and asked if it was a special occasion. I had them place rose petals on the table along... More

Fondue style. Invest in your food and tools instead. It's so dark you cannot see if there's cleanliness. The smell of stale seasoning overwhelms anything they put out regardless of how fresh it may be.

I love the pace of The Melting Pot. It is akin to European dining, so bring people you enjoy conversation with! Dipping and cooking your own food is such a fun and interactive experience, with a wide variety sauces, every bite is customizable and delicious. Fernando, our server, was excellent, friendly, and knowledgeable. Come to The Melting Pot if you... More

My wife had just graduated from college so she and her best friend decided they wanted to celebrate at the Melting Pot. We arrived at around 6:20 and were seated promptly. The dining area was unremarkable. Given this is a place that charges a premium price for fondue, I expected a better atmosphere. Once we were seated, the waiting began.... More

Start with Dessert. It seems there is never room for it, have always loved their traditional fondu and the chocolate if you can handle all the food. Its a relaxing evening to spend with friends or family at a leisurely place. No rush here, plan to spend time. (hint, wear washable clothing, either for the smell on your clothes or... More
