I have been to the Melting Pot on a number of occasions. It is a fun fondue restaurant. If you sign up for the email list you will get notified of the special events they have. You have several cheese fondue options and desert options to choose from. I recommend going for the cheese and chocolate portion only. I tried... More

We've been here many times over the years and never had a bad experience. Not sure this is where you want to drop $200 for dinner for 3. Our extra dipper requests took forever (when they came at all). We lost a thick layer of chocolate fondue that baked into the pot as we waited. Service overall was poor. Server... More

This was a fun one-time experience for the kids more than my husband and I. It's a nicer place that is pricey and not so kid friendly. besides, cooking on fondu sets may be dangerous with very little ones.

I had never been to a Melting Pot restaurant before. Groupon was offering a discount price so my husband and I decided to try it. We definitely liked it...a different experience. The food was good and the atmosphere was romantic.

Was very impressed for our first visit. Our waiter was Ardis and was very informative, courteous, and prompt! He really made our dining experience great!! Everything was really good and all his suggestions were perfect! The only thing we would say is we wish there was more meat in the entree besides that it was SO GOOD!! We will definitely... More

the Melting Pot is a fun interactive restaurant but the portions are small and it's terribly over priced for what you get.

Well, I was expecting to be worried about double dipping with friends as we hovered over cheese or chocolate. Instead, we were treated to a very unusual and fun experience with all sorts of foods, sauces, techniques, etc. A little pricey, but a great escape from the usual.

If your willing to write-off the expense as dinner and a show, it might be worthwhile. I found it a bit pricey, even after the Groupon discount which since it was a weekend was ~30%. The weekday discount ~42% would have definitely pushed the economics in a better direction. Our server had a great table-side manner, he was busy though... More
