The food was good. We always get the surf and turf. We try to get there late so that way parking is free and it is not crowded.

Avoid eating at the Melting Pot at all cost, surcharging you 3% on top of their already over priced menu. The Owner is contributing to anti Livable Wage efforts in Seattle/Washington. Seems to have enough money to give to politicians, but not hard working employees!

We went to the Melting Pot in search of a nice romantic fondue-based dinner. We were not disappointed. The quality of the food was excellent. Our waitress was exceptional and answered all of our questions well. The prices are very competitive. We will be back!

The atmosphere and service was good. I went to Bellevue location, took me 45 minutes to find a place to park. Parking too limited. Food was ok not good and the portions were small compared to the price. You cook your own meat in a flavored broth, so basically it's boiled meat. We did the 4 course meal, very expensive... More

I planned a surprise visit to Seattle to see my daughter and meet her boyfriend. Her boyfriend made reservations at the Lower Queen Anne's Melting Pot. I called to see if they could help me surprise her. The manager Patrick was ready and willing to go all out to help me surprise my daughter. Since my daughter didn't know I... More

The guys picked the Caesar salad and I picked the salad with the avocado. For dessert, we had the dark chocolate turtle. It was fabulous. Husband had a sweet... More

My family visit Seattle maybe once or twice and year and The Melting Pot is the restaurant that the kids always want to go to. The food is excellent and plentiful especially when participating in their 4 course menu. The service is also excellent, with some very friendly staff. Can't recommend it enough!

The atmosphere is very warm and calming. The lighting is low, there are a lot of rich earthy tones decorating the place. The waiter was very calm and friendly, very professional. The food was excellent, very tasteful and well prepared.

You need time for this experience and although we had two hours there was not quite enough, even though we only had fondue and an entree as our burner was slow and fizzled out.

The "4 Course" is the only way to go! The most difficult part is to not fill up until you reach the entree. Bring your adult friends for a memorable dinner... and ask for Mark! A once in a lifetime experience!
