My 10 year old daughter and I were in Columbia for a weekend soccer tournament. I have two other daughters so one on one time is very limited. I wanted to take her somewhere nice where she would enjoy herself. We arrive at the Melting Pot on Friday at 6pm without a reservation. The hosts was very pleasant and informed... More

This was our second time being at Melting pot. We loved the place the first time and had to go back again. Our waiter was very friendly, however he kept forgetting stuff. Like we had to ask him to get us our drinks, even though we told him what we wanted when he asked. Than their was a bug on... More

Donte was our server tonight. The food was good but he made the evening. His positive attitude was put to the test by a family that was demanding and rude. He stayed positive thru it all. He made our night. It is to bad that the other table did not appreciate what could have been a very nice time.

We had been to a Melting Pot before and had a wonderful experience. This was a disappointment. Our waiter seemed distracted. The food was good. We had a party of seven so maybe they are better at smaller parties. I would recommend The Melting Pot for a couple or maybe four people at most.

The place is good for groups or as a couple. We took advantage of the customer appreciation $68 per couple meal deal which included: cheese fondue, salad and then lobster tail, shrimp, filet mignon and chicken with a broth fondue and ending with a chocolate fondue. For us, the highlight was the French Onion cheese fondue. This was delicious and... More

This place was a standard Melting Pot - delicious food, friendly staff, nice atmosphere, etc. As can also be sort of standard for the Melting Pot, it's not the quickest of experiences, even taking into consideration the fact that you have several courses that are all prepared at your table. Be sure to have a couple of hours of spare... More

We purchased a Groupon entitling us to Cheese Fondue for 2, choice of a salad each and 3 small plate choices for each of us, for my husband and me to dine at The Melting Pot to celebrate my birthday. The cost of the Groupon was $45, which helped to tame the cost of this rather pricey restaurant, but the... More

My boyfriend and I visited on a Sunday night. Our waiter was friendly and informative, but there was a large lull when waiting to order. Besides that, the fondue was incredible and I would go back during a slower time when it doesn't take so long to order and eat.

For about the cost of car payment, you too can dine on boiled meat and bad cheese. There was a time in America when boiled meat was a sign of poverty, now a sign of a disposable income. I recommend skipping this delight and eating at home since sticking meat in boiling water does not require refinancing your mortgage.
