Came here with entire family for Christmas Eve dinner. 6 adults and 4 kids. We were squished into a space that supposedly fit 12, but it only had two burners...how can you feed that many people with only two burners to cook your food??? This was my first--and last--time to ever go to a Melting Pot restaurant. Why would I... More

My children love the Melting Pot! The food was delicious, but would have liked more veggies with our dinner (we ordered beef fondue), and prices were a bit expensive if you want to include salad and dessert fondue. We reserved online at the Melting Spot website, and were confused as reservations seemed to be full online, but restaurant was almost... More

Luckily the place wasn't too busy when we arrived so we were seated right away. We ordered a 4 course meal and an additional entree which started first with the cheese fondue. It was really good and I like how they give you different items to dip. Second course was salad and I got the Caesar salad which was not... More

The family (4 adults) took me to The Melting Pot (for the first time) for my birthday. First impression... expensive for what it was. We decided to order only three courses (cheese fondue, salad and dessert), because including the meat course would have been just a whole lot of food! We ordered the Classic Alpine fondue, which included aged gruyere,... More

Upon arrival we ordered drinks as our tabletop burners warmed up, but the burners were unreliable so we were moved to another table. Once resettled, a burner almost failed to heat properly again but kicked in at the last minute. (By the way, if you order drinks, the berry mojito is far better than the Southern Tea.) There were six... More

Went as a party of eight with reservation for 7pm on a Saturday. Menu was confusing and had to have waiter who was nice explain the process a couple times. Cheese fondue starter was nothing special. Cheese was bland. Bread and dipping items either too big or not fresh. Salads not too bad. Main course was weird. Par broil meat... More

We went here hoping for an authentic fondue experience. The cheese was of low quality and so were the other food items.

Food was very good but we found the portions were too small (2 people need to order a fondue for 3). The front desk hostesses were very professional and polite but the waiters too laid back and lacking in the same professionalism. We also felt a bit "crowded", in the sense that the restaurant is divided into rooms with about... More
