We LOVE this place ...having followed them from their former Bahia Vista location to down town many years ago! We met a business associate and good friend on a busy Saturday night after making a reservation. We were promptly seated and the FUN began. Bree WAS EXCEPTIONAL and walked us through the always exciting menu. After a fun round of... More

While this was not our first visit to this restaurant, we enjoy ourselves every time we go. The food is always fresh, the servers are always very friendly and explain everything about the menu. Managers always come by and check to make sure everything was perfect. Bree, our server this time was wonderful. Very friendly and attentive.

The wife and I have been here to eat a few times. It is very good and the staff and service has always been excellent. If you want a nice romantic place to eat that's different with good food, give this place a try It's not super expensive, but the food quality has always been top notch.

The food was delicious, as it always is at the Melting Pot. It is a really fun place to eat a good family meal. Our server (Danielle) was attentive and very nice. She was great about accommodating our son's food allergies.

When we walked in the door, the hostess asked if we had a reservation, which we did not. She said she had to create one for us then as they are a “reservation based restaurant” whatever that means. I’ve dinned here plenty of times without a reservation and with less hassle. As a fellow professional in the service industry I... More

We had a lovely family meal at this establishment, as other family members go there one a month, it was our treat, staff were helpful and pleasant ( one table clearer was a little aloof) but all good. A good drinks menu and starter were good and cheesey kids loved it, the main meal was a little slow to set... More
