We seemed To have been out in the corner with other large groups which made it a bit noisey and hard to have conversation, hard to hear our server when he was talking. I think spreadibgnout large groups would have been better.the food was fabulous and we will be back.

The Melting Pot is a wonderful place to have a get together with your girlfriends. Fondue is made for a group of friends that want to spend time catching up. The food is delicious and comes out at just the right pace. We never feel rushed here like we do at other restaurants. We love that they always have seasonal offerings for us to try as well as the tried and true favourites that we never get tired of.

Was a nice treat. Server was knowledgeable. Price was a lot higher than even the menu shows as everything is extra. Worth it as a very special occasion or something.

The prices seem to be high for the amount you get. Good atmosphere. Servce at the start was a little slow for the amount of people in there. Will not go to often as it is expensive and maybe save it for special occasions.

It took over an hour to get our table as I had a reservation for 9:15 in lovers lane. Didn’t sit down until 10:10pm. We were the last table in the restaurant. The bartender was great. He felt bad for us so we didn’t pay for our second round of wine.

Disappointed.

We enjoyed our evening of dining. The only thing was that the meat had way to much rub on it, I prefer to let the meat speak for itself, so we will just have the cheese and chocolate our next visit. The cheese fondue was amazing! Our server was really nice and very helpful with all our questions. Thank you for a great evening.

The quality and amount of food was excellent. However, the greatest part of eating at Melting Pot, is the
incredible service and passionate staff! Part of our group was new to eating at Melting Pot and the staff were very friendly, knowledgeable, but especially patient with all the questions.

It was our first time there. Had heard a lot of great things and I loved the chocolate fondue at the Taste of Edmonton. My best friend came to take me for dinner on the anniversary of my mom's death. We had a waiter who was amazing!!! He explained everything to us so clearly since we had no idea what we were doing!!! He was remarkable. Really he was!!! We had such a great dining experience and found the entire evening so much fun...more than a dinner... it was a whole evening experience. He really made our evening fantastic... because of him.. we knew exactly how to fondue!!!! Please let him know what a great server he was!!!!
I can't wait to bring my boys for a chocolate fondue.

Was a really good place for an anniversary or a date. Second time we’ve gone for an anniversary and was really good. A bit pricy but worth it and really good portions.

It was an amazing experience from start to finish. My boyfriend is hard to ‘wow’ and he was definitely impressed. Food was great, drinks that were recommended were great, the server was helpful, overall great experience.
The only thing I have to complain about is that it wasn’t clarified the different cooking methods cost more. Example: we chose to use oil to cook our food and it was a $9 charge. On a $190 bill that’s nothing- I just wish we were made aware of it. Other than that we loved every second. Can’t wait to come back to eat our dessert we weren’t able to get that night as we were too full! (Also, an appreciated option to come back to have our dessert since being extremely full happens!)

I was disappointed seeing the pre-cut vegetables like the mini carrots and broccoli, for the price these should be fresh as well the baguettes were stale. Smell when you walk in the door is not appealing, smells like meat gone bad.
The word “complimentary” is used freely for the strawberries and such to dip, server said he would bring more if we needed and never did come back to ask if we needed some. In fact we asked for more strawberries and we had to ask the boy busing the tables for more.
Service was very poor however the waitress serving the other tables was great. Managaer even came and asked the other table how the service was except our table!

I live in Hinton and we were there for my son’s birthday. I had never been there before, but he had, and it was his choice to go for his birthday. It was a lot of fun, but being that we were a big group we were in the room with other big groups. It was noisy but that was very understandable! We definitely enjoyed ourselves and the service was excellent! I would love to try a quieter booth next time! (I saw some on the way to the washroom lol) We all had a lot of fun and I have already recommended The Melting Pot to friends.

Well, it was...interesting. positives: it's a good time, service was amazing, good portions were good. Negatives: I noted on the reso we were there for a date night, but yet we were stuck in the bar in clear view of the front door which kinda took away from the romance. My girlfriend's drinks tasted like sugar and nothing else and the main course was just...alright. I recommend skipping the main and just having cheese and chocolate.

Food was great, fell in love with the Wisconsin cheese fondue! The drinks were on the expensive side and a better quality of chocolate should be used for the chocolate fondue, it was too sweet and runny.

Everything was great and the service was really good. I just find the price a little excessive for what you get. It's also super dark in there, almost to the point where it's hard to see but who's worrying about that when your food is right in front of you

I’ve never had a server so uneducated when it comes to gluten allergies/celiac. I was sick all night and the following day due to her ‘slip ups’. If she wasn’t sure then she should have checked with the kitchen to make sure my food was safe for me. Very disappointed with this experience and will not be rushing back. The manager did credit my meal, but that doesn’t help the physical pain I went through that night.

We went to the Melting Pot for our anniversary. The service started out fair but dropped off as the courses went along. Our cheese fondue was good, the salads were good, the entrée was average and the dessert fondue was excellent, but waiting at least 15 to 20 minutes between courses (even after everything was cleared away) definitely distracted from the overall experience.

Christy was a phenominal server, very professional yet fun and authentic. Amy did a great job with the flowers and table selection. The hostess as well as the bus boy were very friendly and accommodating. Great first impression.

Sadly we sat at our table for 15/20 minutes without even getting offered a beverage. I go to melting pot at least twice a year, to me it is more about the experience than the food. Multiple wait staff walked right by us and not one of them checked on our table or gave us any service at all. So we got up and left.
