    Our waitress was awesome - got us in and out in less than an hour so we could make a show at the Straz. However it was so loud (Saturday evening) that it was hard to focus. We were sitting near the kitchen and there was a loud table near us so maybe just a bad night. Food is yummy but I’d probably try it again on a weeknight.

    The portions were on the smaller side. Not the fondu but the fries that came with the burger. My son remarked, "Look, they gave me 12 fries after the waiter set his plate down. It was definitely more than 12 but probably not more than 20. My shrimp tacos looked amazing but tasted average at best. I recognized that none of it was seasoned. They relied on the flavor of the shrimp batter, the salsa, the guac, etc. to improve the taste. If they had taco sauce or seasoned the greens they put under the shrimp it would've been perfect. Both the cheddar fondu and the chocolate smores fondu were excellent!

    The sandwiches were great but if you want fondue don't go here go to the regular melting pot. The cheddar fondue, atmosphere, and service is way better at the regular melting pot.

    Very accommodating staff! We had a party of 10 and had no issues at all making a reservation. The food was delicious and the portions were perfect. I would recommend the business to use skewers, my fork had cheese on it and wasn’t the best for dipping. I will be returning soon and 10/10 recommend visiting!

    Consistent food, service typically good but can be spotty when the Straz Theatre has events. Restaurant typically packed inside and out during 5 PM to 7:15 PM for the pre-show rush. Kitchen does get backed up at that time manager constantly comes by to see how things are.

    This was my second time at this restaurant. I think it is a little overpriced for what you get. But it's in a prime location, being so close to the Straz. It's absolutely delicious. But the portion size is very small for the price. This particular experience was disappointing because it took 30 minutes for our food to arrive after we ordered it. And when you are trying to make a show at The Straz, it becomes stressful. Other than that, our server was fabulous. The drinks and food were wonderful. But I would think twice before heading there before a show again, just because of the time crunch we experienced.

    The only thing Melting Pottish of the food was the names of the cheese and dessert course. We came in for the late night menu and the cheese and dessert courses were extremely watery. The pasta with added “microscopic” shrimp was alright and the veggie burger was nothing out of the world, maybe we just ordered wrong or should have gone during regular dinner hours where the menu was expansive.

    Ribs were dry and disappointing. Service was lacking as we were never asked if we wanted another drink. Added waffles to our dessert fondue and they were cold. The only highlight was the single lavender vodka drink.

    Server or management could not figure out how to redeem e gift cards. So we were forced to pay full amount. If restaurant offers e gift cards they should be trained on how to redeem them. Slow service, friendly but not efficient.

    Our second dinner here. Seated immediately. I ordered a salad with herb chicken and got a small plate when I was looking to get a full salad. My daughter ordered a turkey club sandwich and she got it without the listed ranch mayo. It was a busy time. We waited a bit for dessert. The management didn’t charge for our dessert because of our wait. Great menu. Good food. We will return.

    The service was exceptionally slow. My meal came 6-7 minutes after the rest of my parties and part of my meal didn’t arrive until we completed our mail. Fortunately, the server was aware enough to take the $2.50 chicken skewer off the bill. We never had water brought to our table and had to wait for drinks to be replenished. Coffee was not hot. Even waited to get our bill! This was a return trip with friends, because my first visit was exceptional. I doubt I’ll go back even though it’s very convenient to the theater.

    Had reservation at 5:45 before show at Straz. Seated right away and service of waiter was great. Food was fine. My partner and I shared a cheese fondue and salad along with 2cocktails. While we were sitting in a booth by the high tops, I noticed a display on our table about happy hour. When we asked about this I was informed we had to sit at the bar or high top table two feet from us. I asked why the display was on our table they said it was just advertising. Falsely I guess at our table. While finishing our drinks my partner went to the restroom, the manager came over and asked jf we minded leaving if we were done because they needed the table. We had been seated for a whopping 45 minutes. We will not be going back due to service of manager.

    We went to dinner before seeing a show at the Straz. There were 4 of us. We had a reservation, and we were seated quickly. The food was great, and the atmosphere was awesome. Service was the only negative. Missed entree after asking several times, no refills, and had to go get a knife ourselves after asking twice. We all left 20% for a tip since it seemed like a lack of training.

    Excellent for Pre Theatre. 2 Blocks from the Straz. We had the Spicy Ribs Appetizer which was awesome. Chicken Panini is more than enough to feed two people. My cheese Fondue - The Monterrey - was good not great. The pretzel bread could have much better. Overall, very good!

    Do not order an Aperol Spritz here. The bartender working did not make it correctly. It tasted like it had no procecco and all club soda. Yuck. I asked our server for just a prosecco instead and it wasn't made by the bartender until I was almost done with my meal. Was I being punished? The food was ok.. but there are no protein choices for the fondue.. which I guess is the same for the cheese part of the fondue experience at the regular Melting Pot. The prices for the main courses are super overpriced.. hence the reason I went for the cheese fondue. It was conveniently located next to Straz on a rainy night but there are better choices on a nicer evening.

    The location is amazing, we loved the ambience, and the service was outstanding so the prices on the menu were totally understandable but how do you mess up such a good concept?!! The fondue idea sounds like it would taste amazing but it was below average with what they give you to dip in it. The only thing we really enjoyed was the Mac and cheese and even that was too expensive for the portion size we got.

    Shawn was a great server but they had him at the Bar and waiting tables. The Shrimp Tacos were great! But the avocado was bland( throw some flavor ie. salt, lime something!). The Crispy Chicken Caprese Panini was ok, the chicken had a little flavor ( I think it would be better as a fried chicken cutlet.) Our Queso Fuegowas ok, the apples and broccoli wasn’t necessary and the dessert was fine, wasn’t disappointed when we got the bill so… more than likely we’ll go for the full experience next time. But hey we need to try new things!

    To be fair, the food and drinks were very good but this is not a main dish fondue restaurant. The fondue is a small serving appetizer and dessert option but the rest of the menu is a traditional entree menu. Our server talked fast and walked away without answering our questions. When the food came out the entrees came before the fondue appetizers we ordered and there wasn’t enough room on the table for the food and the plates. When questioned the server, his response was “unfortunately that’s how the kitchen prepared the orders” and then he walked away. I paid the automatic 20% gratuity on the $500.00 meal because of the 7 person group size but would have enjoyed the experience much more if the server spent more time with the table than they did hanging at the host station.

    Always good. Fun time and not too much that you have to have a take out box. Perfect for before a show at the Straz. No place to put your take out box! An hour or so is perfect timing to eat before a show.

    The menu is a little scattered and the food is inconsistent. Based on the manager's recommendation, we ordered the pot stickers as an appetizer, which was very good. But the rest of the meal was really mediocre. The shrimp tacos were underwhelming. The miso salmon arrived at out table almost raw. When we sent it back for a little more cooking, it took so long that we didn't have time to eat it due to having to be at the performing arts center nearby for a show.
