Before going to the melting pot, I've heard quite a rave about it. I was highly disappointed thst I had to cook the food myself and it wasn't tasty at all. Definitely not worth $40 to $45 per person. If I wanted to cook, I would have cooked at home and my food would have tasted much better. Im glad... More

I am sorry to hear that we did not meet your expectations but we appreciate you taking the time to give us valuable feedback. We strive to deliver the perfect night out to each and every guest and I understand that our fondue cooking style isn't for everyone. I would love to invite you back to show you a better... More

I have never had fondue before and I cook a lot for my wife and kids, so first off the bat I wanted our waitress to explain the process. This girl was the rudest person I have ever met and she really needs to find her place in the workforce as waiting on folks is not for her. But back... More

Thank you for taking your time to write a review and give us valuable feedback. I am sorry that you did not enjoy the fondue cooking style. I hope that you had a chance to try our cheese/chocolate fondues, which are usually a big hit. As far as the service, that is totally unacceptable and I want you to know... More

Kids love the fondue. The whole concept is great but a bit difficult to order. Don't want to pay full price for small kids who won't eat as much but the breakdown gets confusing. Tend to add things on, without clarity, that you don't realize you are paying for until you get the bill. Food is good but not great... More

Hubby and I decided to take advantage of this location being open for lunch and stopped in. We ended up having to bring our 5 year old as she was out of school. Our waiter was fantastic and rhe food was great as well. Absolutely no complaints will try to sneak in another visit before year end.

It was my best friend's birthday and we both really wanted to go here. It was quiet when we went and our waiter was both attractive and talented so that was awesome. Our meal was delicious and we also got dessert. The teriyaki marinated sirloin was my favorite. It was so amazingly tender. I cannot recommend the dark chocolate one... More

The anniversary was as special as the first date. The place provides a natural setting to sit and talk, while preparing and eating food with one another. I recommend this place over other locations that can be a bit too much in your conversations under the guise of "serving" your meal.

I had only been to the melting pot once several back and only then went because I was an acquaintance of the owners/GMs. And I didn't recall really having much of an opinion on the last visit ... mainly because I didn't remember. So I had no expectations or reservations when the family wanted to go and take friends visiting... More

Food and service were great. We made a reservation online and came for our anniversary dinner. Definitely a special occasion meal- not a regular dinner. The service was great. Friendly and polite waitress. It takes longer than a usual meal if you stay for all four courses. It is pricy but worth it for the experience. I loved the Pacific... More
