We had never been to one of these before, and it was a great experience. The building was an old kiln, and was very cozy and charming. Could not get cell reception while inside due to the thick walls, but that added to the ambiance. Our server did a great job of explaining how it all worked. There are lots... More

Went for the first time last month and our service was terrible. I think our waitress forgot we were there. It was hard to figure out the menu and what to order. First time at this type of restaurant and probably wouldn't go back. However, the building the restaurant is located in is a old Brick Mill and it is... More

The atmosphere is great, similar to dining in a Winery Cellar. Very fun to share dipping and tasting your selections. This is a dining experience, so don't be in a hurry to eat and run. Our server was very attentive and friendly. Fun bar and wide selection of wines. We chose the 4 course dinner, so we had the cheese... More

This was my first time here, and I was not impressed.I went to the Melting Pot with a group of 16 on a Saturday at 5:00 PM. The group was on time. There were only two menus on the table and no "instructions" on how to order, which you need here because the food comes in "stages" and each one... More

Wonderful! I've always wanted to try this place and never did until now. The location really just adds to how much I loved this place. The Brick Kiln is such a neat, historic building! Great place for a romantic dinner (although I was there for a business dinner). The service and food were both exceptional! My business associates ordered the... More
