I know this is a chain but this was my first visit to it. I've been to other fondue restaurants, but The Melting Pot has this down to a science. For a very filling meal, it wasn't too expensive and included easy instructions for cooking all the various items. Yes, you have to cook some things yourself, but it is... More

You can find this restaurant all over USA. It is my favorite place, but not for my husband, because you cook your own food on the table. They moved from the Old town to Uptown. The service is outstanding. I love everything but not too crazy about the main dish. Expect to pay around $40 to $50 per person.

Having walked up and down Mountain Road we asked at Seasons only to be told that this branch of Melting Pot no longer is in business and a bank is in its place. There is however a branch in downtown Albuquerque.

Do not go to this restaurant if you are in a hurry! You have to have several hours or more to enjoy the experience! I call it an experience, because you cook your own food, and it is delish! And make sure you have great company, you don't want to get stuck that long with someone you don't enjoy being... More

Great place to eat when you want a treat. It is a little pricey so we don't go often. Staff is friendly and the overall experience is fun

I don't generally do this, but the service we received on Christmas Day was so excellent that I must start with the service. They were not that busy so our first experience here did lend itself to being able to give the customer service we enjoyed from the moment we stepped into the restaurant. Please note that I did not... More
