The server was great (James) and the food was good. All eight of us had a great time. The only reason I am not giving them a higher rating is the little card they pass out to get customer feedback. I started the survey and it asked you grade poor to excellent. I graded several things as good and got... More

We had never been to a Melting Pot. The staff was very courteous and our server, Jordan, explained how everything worked, how to read the menu and the choices. Also, he was very knowledgeable in describing the flavors of the cheese and different entree styles, helping guide us to our individual tastes. Go with friends and plan on spending a... More

I have only had dinner once here, and while it was good, it wasn't life changing. I do return frequently for the dessert menu though. An excellent private feeling with friendly professional staff. The dessert menu is inexpensive but very impressive.

We had an awesome experience to celebrate our anniversary. The four course meal was excellent. Our waitress was very attentive and provided us great service. I requested the roses and greeting card that was placed at our table and we had our picture taken to remember the celebration. We truly enjoyed our evening and will definitely return. Thanks for making... More

I should start off by saying that I waited to post this review because I contacted the Sarasota location by leaving feedback about our experience on their website. I was contacted by a manager and she apologized and told me that they rarely received bad reviews or experiences and she wanted to make it up to me. She was going... More

Be sure to set aside enough time to truly enjoy your experience at the Melting Pot. The four-course meals make the most sense financially (they're basically the same price as just a main course and cheese) so you're going to be there for a while! My boyfriend and I shared one four-course meal, which was plenty of food for the... More

Absolutely delicious meal and great service. We had the Valentines Day special and savored every one of the four courses. Despite being somewhat pricey we definitely would recommend this place.

Another good meal as always and tried the new Savory Thai cooking style and it did not disappoint. It had great flavor with a little bit of kick. Always good to end on our favorite chocolate combo of dark chocolate, peanut butter and marshmallow!
