Arrived early so enjoyed cocktails in the bar. We were escorted to our table a few minutes after our reservation time. Waiter was excellent and now I’m sadly forgetting his name. It was maybe Bodie? None the less great service and the food was wonderful.

D'railed Is the hidden gem you try to find anywhere you go!!! From the service to the amazing food, you leave wanting to come right back at your first opportunity. Don’t let the setting of its location sway you. This is one of the best restaurants I have ever been to, and being from Las Vegas, that is saying something! The Japanese A5 Waygu was absolutely top notch.

It’s dinner and a show—a fun and entertaining experience where time flies by. The food is good, and I enjoyed most of the dishes. However, it’s quite expensive. If the price were more reasonable, I would have given it five stars.

Boise
About the restaurant
At the Melting Pot we specialize in fun and interactive four-course fondue dinners, great for every occasion. The fondue experience begins with a savory cheese fondue prepared tableside, followed by your choice of fresh salad. For the main event, choose from a wide variety of tantalizing meats, seafood, and fresh vegetables, certain to please even the most particular of palates. Then cook them tableside in one of our savory broths or even in traditional oil. All of our entrée selections are paired with our famous house dipping sauces, including the garden fresh green goddess, our sweet teriyaki glaze, and the tangy ginger plum sauce. And just when you think it couldn't get better, the grand finale: a choice of decadent chocolate fondues presented with a platter of sweet bits for dipping.

It was a great experience out. The cheese and chocolate were of course the big hits. Surprisingly the meat boiled in the broth was delicious. The entire family had a great time.
