The hostess and manager were quite cold and not very personable until we left and walked out the door. Made us feel as if we were a nuisance and we we would have to wait a real long time before we got seated (1 hr). As if they were trying to talk us out of it. We didn't have a... More

This is a fondue restaurant and we had a blast. Four courses - cheese, salad, protein and chocolate. Every course was delicious!! Our server, who prepared much of our meal table side - was fantastic. She was friendly, welcoming and did an excellent job with all the prep and explanation!! We will definitely go back!!

If you love fondue and a great wine list this is your place. The fondue was prepared table side and absolutely blew our party of 4 away. I have never had a restauranr fondue experience like this. The service was first class all the way.......very attentive and never missed a beat.

Food was great, but for a higher end restaurant the service was poor. Unorganized, nothing was explained well, food order was taken for half the table while one of our waitresses just walked off and didn't even have our drink order yet. Waitresses never came back to see if we needed anything, slow service when they did bring the food/checks... More

We choose The Melting Pot for our niece's 21st birthday. The food was outstanding. We had 5 in our party so had the choice of 2 cheese, main course and chocolate fondues. We enjoyed every bite!! The raspberry dark chocolate fondue is to die for!! This a great place for a special occasion.

My sweet daughter came to visit. She treated me to theater tickets as a belated gift. So I treated her to The Melting Pot. We arrived early, anticipating the "need for speed" in order to get downtown to the Overture Center for parking and curtain time. I expressed this need to our server and was willing to tip accordingly. We... More

A wide variety of choices for your fondue. We started with a fresh avocado salad and finished with a chocolate almond fondue. The server was very helpful in helping with the selections. A good place for a special occasion. Enjoy!

This is a fun, unique experience. The staff was attentive, yet not intrusive. The food was delicious. We had salmon, sirloin, shrimp, spinach ravioli, and pesto chicken in bullion fondue. The salad and vegis were very good as well. I'm looking forward to returning for the cheese and chocolate fondue.

I've been wanting to try the Melting Pot for quite some time. I was happy I got the opportunity while on a business trip in Madison. I had a bit of sticker shock upon my first glance at the menu. Luckily I was traveling with a colleague so we split one full course between the two of us which worked... More
