We, two adults and 10 years old boy, went to this restaurant Saturday evening with reservation. When we checked in at 6:30pm, only one couple were waiting, but I heard people without reservation needed to wait for an hour to be seated.

We ordered 4-Course Experience for two adults (Classic and Fusion with Seasones Court Bouillon), extra Cheese Fondue and Chicken Potstickers for child, a bottle of wine, and a glass of beer. Food and service was excellent, but we ordered too much food so that I couldn't eat Chocolate Fondue so much. Our child enjoyed the first experience to eat fondue. It cost about $200 including 20% tips.

When we left the restaurant at 9:00pm, so many people (about 20) were waiting for seats. We like their food and service so much, so we will go back in the near future.

This place is hands down for special occasion's if you would show up here for a anything less, your gonna pay for it. There service is usually amazing, there food selection is amazing along with there ability to change or swap just about anything out. If want atmosphere and romance the kind of stuff you would dream or think about goin for this is the place. Even if you decide to come just for dessert this place is it. Although it may melt your wallet but you can't pay to make Special occasion's more special.

We dined at the Melting Pot in Legacy Village tonight for a large (12) family night out. It was great. Patrick was a terrific server. Food was excellent (as always) and it was just plain fun for the whole family. The phenomenal chocolate fondues to cap the dinner off were excellent. We've never been disappointed at any Melting Pot we've dined in.

The menu is very confusing and overwhelming. We each had the four course meal which comes with 2 cheeses and 2 cooking styles (one free, one charged per pot) that you share: choice of salad and entree. You get raw veggies, fruit (grapes and green apples), bread and chips for cheeses. You get raw veggies and potatoes with raw meat (entree). Everyone has their own colored skewer to put your meat/veggies on then cook in pot of flavored cooking style. You also get 5 different dipping sauces. For dessert, choice of two chocolate sauces with an array of treats: marshmallows cheesecake, brownies, strawberries and cakes. The experience is definitely a conversation piece and enjoyable. EXPENSIVE!!!!!! However, great attentive service.

I also used the $40 Groupon for a fondue dinner for two (up to an $87.60 value). I was a little wary after reading about the poor experience some of the Groupon users had at the restaurant. We were seated quite promptly. Since we had two toddlers who needed high-chairs, we were re-seated at a different table (a separate room with just that single table). It was great as it allowed us some privacy and we didn't have to worry a lot about the twins making a ruckus. Our server (David) walked us through the fundamentals of fondue. We had cheddar cheese fondue (we were not a bog fan of veggies dipped in the cheese, but the bread was good), a house salad and a California salad, and two entrees comprising six meats (Pacific white shrimp, honey-orange duck breast, Atlantic salmon, mahi mahi, chicken breast, chicken potstickers) along with some veggies. We cooked our entrees in two styles - Seasoned Court Bouillon, and Coq au Vin. All this was part of the Groupon deal. In addition, we asked for one portion of a dessert (I emphasized on the ONE portion aspect, as another reviewer here said that he/she was charged for two persons). That one portion of the Original chocolate fondue was the perfect amount for us. The dessert, and the taxes and gratuity were about 30$ - so a total of $70 for the dinner for two.
So, it was a little expensive but okay for special occasions – it was my birthday, and they gave me a card and lighted a candle in my cheesecake. No chocolate covered strawberries for me ;)
