We had Matt as our server, and he was just fabulous. We came for cheese and chocolate and being satisfied is an understatement. Everything they give you to pair with the cheese and chocolate is truly outstanding. I'll definitely be back again and again especially because I'm a local, and working in the restaurant industry, locals are definitely the people... More

This place was pretty much empty and I'd say it's because it's overpriced and just ok. If you don't want to have to cook your own food, don't come here. The other thing I don't like is you can't eat your cheese and meats together because they each require the pot for cooking. My kids were still starving when we... More

We had been to The Melting Pot in Minneapolis and knew this would be good. We had a great server, Ross, who was very helpful, competent and friendly. We went for the 4 courses - a must and enjoyed every single mouthful. Excellent tasty different food.

Seriously, avoid this place. Looks great, very impressive. Amazing inside and a great date place, but don't eat! Drink and Drink, but do not eat. Reminds me of the Oasis in Austin, go there to drink, but don't eat.

This was our first time going to the melting pot. I wish I had read some of the review before going. We ordered blindly and pretty much watsted money . We had no idea you cooked your own meats. The broth that we chose to cook our meats in wasn't really all that good (COQ AU VIN) . From my... More

My daughter & I stopped in for cheese& chocolate. We ended up ordering the cheese, salad & chocolate. We had the Quattro Formaggio - it was fabulous but not enough; we flew through the pot in minutes! The dipping breads were fabulous! Then we both had the Strawberry Spinach Salad; it was wonderful, the dressing is so yummy! Then came... More

The experience of fondue is what makes this a fun and exciting night out. It was a great place to celebrate a 70th Birthday or any occasion. Definitely will go back and recommend to anyone.

Description
At The Melting Pot, fondue is more than a signature dish. It's a culinary tradition that we honor every day - and have spent 40 years perfecting. And thanks to our dedication to our craft, that tradition is still going strong and attracting new fans today. Fondue is more than just a meal. It's an experience. And that's what The Melting Pot does best. Whether you're celebrating a birthday, anniversary, a long overdue date night, or celebrating with a group, The Melting Pot Restaurant is perfect for any occasion. Customize your visit with a four-course dining experience including cheese fondue, salad, entree and dessert. Or, come by for fondue cheese paired with that perfect glass of wine from our extensive selection. That's not to say, we haven't had more than a few stop by to satisfy that chocolate craving after a movie.
