I. LOVE. FONDUE. what is not to love about it? cheese, bread, meat, wine I mean really delicious. With that thought in mind I convinced my husband who does NOT like chain restaurants, to give it a try. The food was OK. not terrible. but the entire experience was just odd. We were seated in a dark booth for two,... More

This place will not disappoint. Service was amazing, restaurant itself is set beautiful and the food is incredible. Make sure you go there hungry! We ordered the four course and I highly recommend the Brie and bacon cheese......amazing.

This place was great when it was here. It was nice to know that Fondue was available any time! Toward the end it really started to be empty all the time - - too bad they didn't make it.

Can't believe they are still in business. Expensive for serving cardiac arrest in a bowl service so so, atmosphere marginal

Everybody walks out with a doggy bag. It's like 2 meals for the price of one. I am a very big eater and I had enough for my lunch the next day......and the food was great.

We found a discount coupon in one of the vacation booklets and as we were staying close to the restaurant we decided to check it out.What a feast!! Very tasty and best fondue dessert ever! Definitely worth a visit. Considering how many courses you got it was really worth spending the extra.

Popular with my grandaughters, We are having Kylie's birthday party Oct. 5th @ Melting Pot in Coral Springs. But today it's Ft. Lauderdale. Kylie & Kaitlyn both like fondue dining. Me not so much. We ordered, vegetables, steak, chicken, shrimp, several sweets. We had several pots of cheese, oils, chocolate to dip food. The girls had water to drink.

Honestly, every time I try out the Melting Pot, the food seems to taste weird in the way it has to be cooked. I am not a fan of everything having to be cooked in a pot of oil or boiled. However, if you just go for dessert and drinks it could actually be a great experience. The only bad... More
