I’m so glad we went. We didn’t even realize it would be our last time dining at this location. The kids LOVED going there. This place was always something we as a family looked forward to dining at. We never left hungry or unsatisfied. The staff was always very pleasant. This restaurant will be missed:(

Our party of 6 dropped down to two so we didn’t qualify for the Valentines Day special. However, the manager made an adjustment to our bill and that was very unexpected. The food was fresh and delicious. We tended to linger over each course so our meal took about 4 hours. My guest and I had a wonderful time to catch up and feel relaxed while enjoying every single morsel. I will definitely return!

I absolutely LOVE the melting Pot. It’s a great get together place and also lovely for date nights. The managers are always SO considerate. Constantly checking in, making sure their staff are on top of things. We have had lovely experiences each and every time. We especially love going for endless fondue nights and we just celebrated our first Valentines Night together which was romantic and perfect. I recommend The Melting Pot to everyone.

Best New Years Eve dinner we have ever had out. The signed birthday card from the staff was very sweet! We had an awesome waiter, and the manager was extremely friendly!

Lovely NYE dinner with our 2 kids. Our server, Sara, was splendid and in tune to our needs as a family. The manager made sure to visit every table to greet and thank us for dining with them that evening. We will definitely be returning.

This restaurant is our choice for birthdays, special occasions and decadent chocolate fondue. The service is excellent, and the choices for cheese, entree and chocolate fondue are many. It's a bit expensive though, but well worth it!

We celebrated our daughter’s 16th birthday here - she chose the Melting Pot because the experience is so fun and the food is great. The staff is always so genuine and helpful. The 3-hour meal forces us to relax and enjoy the food and each other. All courses are tasty and we were thrilled that the bananas foster dessert fondue is back on the menu (though we’ve always been able to order it even when it wasn’t on the menu).

Absolutely fun and unique dining experience! Came here with friends and my 15 yr old son and we all left happy and full! I love the variety of dippable items and the freedom to order as many or few courses as you desire. By far my favorite was the dessert course. My son and I cleaned our pot! Prices are a bit steep but you pay for the entire experience.

My boyfriend and I always go to The Melting Pot when we want to treat ourselves to a night out, and we’re never disappointed!

The four-course meal is always amazing with so many options, you can’t go wrong!
The manager, Kevin, is a sweetheart and always strikes up a conversation when he sees us. It really makes us feel welcomed and taken care of.
The rest of the staff is also spectacular!

Can’t wait for our next visit!!

Service was very poor/slow. We used Groupon that was good to order/purchase TWO chocolate fondue. But the server brought only ONE, which we realized later. We wanted to complain, but the server never returned to our table after we made the payment and we couldn't find the manager.

Always the best of everything when you dine at the Melting Pot Henrietta! From the moment you walk in to the time you're out the door, both the manager and staff makes you feel as if their only purpose is to give you the best experience possible. Whenever someone in my family is having a birthday, we let them choose wherever they would like to go for dinner (within reason) Even with it being an hour drive from our home, this is always the choice! Thank you everyone at the Melting Pot!

Food, as always, was excellent as was the overall experience. I do want to make two service related comments. The manager on duty, Kevin, was our server in the past and he remembered us when he came to the table to check on us. I rather wish he had been our server instead of Gabby. She was competent but way too chatty, especially when she was oversharing things about her personal life. She was also a bit slow in delivering the entree but a bit too quick in delivering the salads. I would certainly come back again but hope to have a different server.

The service was amazing. Our server went above and beyond to make our experience memorable. However, do not buy the Groupon they are offering. I ended up paying more than if we would have just gone.
