Description: The Melting Pot Restaurant is where fun is cooked up fondue style. Romantic for Couples and Great in a Group. Our Ahwatukee restaurant is easily accessible from I-10. Take the "E Ray Road" exit off the I-10 and travel 2 miles west into the Ahwatukee Foothills. The modern yet warm casually elegant atmosphere sets the mood for a relaxing evening. The leisurely paced four-course experience begins with a cheese fondue prepared table side. A fresh salad follows while your entrée pot heats up. You’ll simmer a variety of tantalizing meats, seafood and vegetables. Each morsel is hot, fresh and delicious and all entrées are accompanied by an array of dipping sauces to add to the flavorful fun. Chocolate fondue is the finale, all served with decadent dippers. Most make reservations for the four-course dining experience but more than a few have stopped by to satisfy that cheese fondue or chocolate craving. Hand crafted cocktails and great wine list.

We've been to this Melting Pot several times and have always had a good experience. While it can be rather pricey, it's a great place to take friends from out of town with whom you have a lot of catching up to do because dinner will take a while. Plan on 2 hours or so for an appetizer, dinner, and dessert. The service has always been good and the food is good as well. For those that haven't heard of the Melting Pot before, it's a chain of upscale fondue restaurants.

My husband and I go here about once a month and we are never disappointed. It is a TON of food though. We will usually just sit up at the bar and get cheese fondue, salad, chocolate fondue, and drinks. That is plenty of food! You better be really hungry if you plan to do the whole 4 course meal! I suggest the cheddar cheese fondue - so good! And the Yin Yan Martini is the best drink ever! Goes very well with the chocolate fondue.

Eating here is an experience and will take a little longer. So come really hungry and plan on staying a while! It can be pricely but I do think it is worth it - more than enough food that taste great and it a beautiful atmosphere.
