    We have been going to different melting pot restaurant for over 20 years. We have celebrated Mother’s Day, birthdays, and anniversaries of them. When I saw this one with closing, as it is, the closest one to us, I decided to take my daughter for one last birthday celebration for her. I booked the reservation and marked on it. It was her birthday. It was nice to walk in and see her birthday on the display board. We ordered the four course meal. While eating a table came in next to us, and order just chocolate to celebrate their daughters birthday. As I guess it was noted on the reservation, the server brought out a piece of cheesecake and a happy birthday plate. I was a little disappointed, as obviously a birthday celebration with Mentioned, when booking my reservation, that one dessert came out the same as not done for my daughter. I did not bother to say anything as it was past the point of that morning. Not to mention the service was not that good every waited many times for a drink, or the other items we need it. It was such a shame, that our last experience at this restaurant, which he spent many events, and I like that, with a bit of a letdown.

    During my meal, I discovered an unexpected item in my chocolate fondue, that looked like a worm like item which the waiter claimed to be a very long banana skin. Naturally, this was quite unsettling and concerning. When I brought this to the attention of the staff, instead of offering a resolution that aligns with basic food safety standards, I was informed that the chef had consumed the item and was only offered additional dippers as compensation. As a loyal customer, I was taken aback by this response. Not only was it unsatisfactory in addressing the issue, but it also failed to provide a sense of reassurance regarding the overall quality and hygiene standards upheld by your establishment. I believe it is essential for you to be aware of this incident so that appropriate measures can be taken to prevent such occurrences in the future. I would appreciate it if you could investigate the matter further and provide me with a follow-up on the steps being taken to address this issue. Thank you for your attention to this matter. I trust that you will take the necessary actions to uphold the reputation and standards of The Melting Pot.

    Sad that this location is closing. We chose cheese and chocolate for our meal. The fondue did not disappoint. I know there was a program for good grades but the server was unaware. And a pet peeve....the use of 'no problem' instead of 'your welcome'. It's a generational thing.

    We are so sorry that this location of the Melting Pot will be closing. We really have always enjoyed our meals there. We would drive all the way from Morristown. Max was our server for a couple of our dinners. He was always professional. He was friendly and attentive. We will miss our Fondue meals!

    Muy husband and I had a great time. We made a reservation because we heard the restaurant was closing and there aren't places like this around. Coming here is an experience. Our server was excellent. We might have try and get in 1 more time before they close.
