We called the Melting pot to make reservations and were told that we could just walk in. We drove over an hour there only to be told that we couldn't be seated. The manager Bob was very rude and unpleasant. We will definitely not be visiting there again!

After calling two hours before arrival to reserve, was told they were not taking reservations and it was first come first serve. Drove an hour and a half, arrived to a completely empty restaurant at 5:00, and were told they were booked. "Bob" seemed fairly incompetent and said that no seats were available and we "misunderstood" what he said on... More

So, this is not my favorite place to eat because I don't love the food. the service is good and the atmosphere is nice. I just don't like my meat boiled (I'm a grilled meat kind of gal). I have eaten there 2 times and will not go back. Some people like the experience of cooking your own food in... More

We chose to have an early dinner at the Melting Pot on a Wednesday evening. Arriving shortly after 5:00, I was surprised that our reservation had been lost somewhere between my cell phone through Open Table to the restaurant. No problem. At that time of day, there are plenty of tables. We like to sit toward the back where there's... More

The Melting Pot in Birmingham AL is our favorite restaurant we have ever tried - being fondue and more of an unique experience. This location tops the Melting Pot in Atlanta (North Atlanta above Dunwoody) and St. Petersburg. Overall The Melting Pot is a romantic, low lit atmosphere with many options for all. We are vegetarians and they have a... More

The hostess was very friendly and accommodating right when we entered the door. Sorry, I can't remember her name. I had booked the reservation thru open table and put a note on there that we were celebrating my wife's 37th birthday. The hostess told my wife happy birthday and the staff even gave her card wishing her a happy bday... More

Our first time visiting the Melting Pot. We had the French Quarter Combo which was steak, chicken, shrimp and sausage. Our dinner started with cheese dip, vegetables, apples, bread and chips. Then salad followed by the main course which you cook in a pot at the table. We finished with s'mores sauce that came with a plate of fruit, and... More
