First of all I used to love the melting pot. I cook my own food and that is USUALLY safe because I’m gluten free.. my waiter forgot I was gluten free and I had to keep telling him! I paid over $150 for a meal...More

Love the melting pot! Always a great time and always a great meal. Generally experienced and well-versed servers. Only one time have I had a very young and inexperienced person that felt the need to share their life story. Sorry, but it’s true. Other than...More

Daughter wants to go every year for her birthday. Servers are always polite, but tend to disappear for too long on too many occasions. Ends up turning, what is already a lengthy meal into a really lengthy meal. Food is good. Hard to really mess...More

Good food. Plenty of hands-on cooking activity. Would rate it higher, except it always turns into a 2 1/2-3 hr meal. Shouldn’t take that long, but food comes out slowly, and servers tend to disappear. Warning...clothes will reek when you leave. Cooking with cheese, oil,...More

It's Wednesday at 8:51pm. We arrived at 6:45. I am guessing that this place will be closed in three months. The restaurant is deserted and the service is the worst I have had in 20 years. Dark atmosphere, elevator music blaring. Do not waste your...More
