We arrived about 10 minutes before our reservation, were seated promptly, service was great, and we spent 2 1/2 hours at dinner. Love this place when we want to spend some quality family time together. The food is great. Although it is more expensive than our favorite Chinese restaurant, it is a much nicer atmosphere for a family gathering, more conducive to having conversation, and no one hustles you out after 30 minutes.

We often come to the Melting Pot for for the first time the service was very bad. Waiter seemed to be overwhelmed. Dropped off food and never checked back on us. Burner was not on high enough food was bit cooking. Had to find another waiter to help us. Didn’t get better throughout the night.

Ally was lovely! She was so attentive and she really went above and beyond to make our experience really memorable. The room we sat in was so nice, it was awesome to have that privacy. The food was good as always. We had the fiesta and quattro formaggio cheeses which were amazing. Ally made sure we had extra dippers and she was quick to give us more brownies when we asked for them. Overall, the melting pot is my go-to spot whenever getting together with friends. I will never stop going!

Very disappointed in what was my favorite open table restaurant. I appreciate new staff learning the restaurant and always praise them for the job they are doing. I am not sure if our server was new but he was inattentive, did not come back to check on us and left our pot boiling for about a half hour before bringing our food. I have food allergies and this restaurant is usually very accommodating however this server seemed unaware of the substitutions available and when asked told us they couldn’t do that even when we told him it was done many times before. All of this I would have overlooked and not posted this comment if it hadn’t been for what occurred while we were having our meal. A couple was seated with a small lap dog. This dog was clearly not a service dog as I have worked with service animals and witnessed first hand the amazing things they can do for those they are trained to serve. This dog was not wearing anything to indicate they were a service animal or a service animal in training. I have allergies to dogs and attempted to continue my meal without complaining however my eyes began to itch and it became uncomfortable. We were told the dog was an emotional support dog and they offered to move our seat, since we were already in the mist of our meal we should not have been the ones inconvenienced. Regardless of my allergy, I find it very unsanitary to allow a dog that was not providing service in an establishment where raw food is being prepared at your table. We left without finishing our meal and were given $35 off the bill. With the chocolate fondue dessert that was part of our bill being $24 and 1/2 the dinner left uncooked $35 is a joke. Fondue is one of my favorite date night dinner but we will not be returning to the Melting Pot.

The service was extremely slow. The food was not great. The waitress brought the wrong entree for one of us and started to argue with us. It’s was a lot of money for poor quality food and service.

Tom was our server, awesome man. I couldn’t have enough nice things to say about him but here’s a few, not only was he patient with my boyfriend who takes 30 minutes to look at a menu but he also was personable with us which is how servers get their tips (if you’re the server who just rolls your eyes or has an attitude learn from Tom) if he isn’t the highest paid employee he should be! I will come back for his service!!

Got the reservation incorrect Waited more than 10 minutes for a server to come to table after being seated. Place was freezing. Very lackluster food As it is the only Fondue restaurant in area it gets people in. Have been there 3 times prior. Feel it is riding on it’s laurels & not providing the unique & pleasing experience I was hoping for.

My fiancé recently proposed at the Melting Pot because it's probably my favorite restaurant for many reasons. They went above and beyond to make it very special and unforgettable. Now I look forward to coming to the restaurant and sharing that great memory.

We always enjoy going to the Melting pot - although it’s a been awhile since our last visit. The menu has changed a bit and they offer a grill set up now. We really enjoyed the grill - especially with our steak selections. Everything was delicious - except we did find the duck, not so good - I would stay away from it

We went there for my daughter’s 18 birthday the service was really not good . We had a reservation and it wasn’t very busy . The food was overly priced for what we ordered and since we had to cook it ourselves none of us ate at the same time. The best party was dessert.

Took over 2.5 for the four course meal which seemed excessive. Sometimes there was an excess of 20+ minutes in between courses and waiting for the server to come back.

We frequently visit The Melting Pot as we love the food and atmosphere. This time around the service was an issue. Our waiter seemed to have forgotten about us and the meal was painfully slow. Tables around us were getting their orders at a much better pace - and we had small children with us. When the bill was given to us, we are glad we checked it as it seems the waiter intentionally added a cocktail that we did not order 'Absolute Stress' - it seemed almost like a message was trying to be sent to us for requesting our waiter be a bit more attentive to our meal pace.
The food was wonderful, at it always is. It's a great spot for a special occasion.
We will come back, but hopefully will have better luck with service.
