Food was really good, however the highlight of this visit was the bartender. I received great service and was aroused the entire time.... young, thin, dark hair, NICE rear end, she was showing it off especially for me.

I haven't been to this restaurant in several years so decided to try again. I had a Groupon and probably wouldn't have gone with out it. Pretty pricy. The place is really changed. Induction grills built into the table. Great selection of food, plentiful portions....More

Thank you for taking the time to leave your review. I am sorry to hear that your server did not explain this charge to you verbally as it is printed on the menu. They should have reinforced this fact with you and for that, we...More

I know all of the objections. Overpriced. Why would I want to go cook my own food. It takes too long. People saying this haven't been. It is one of my favorite places in the world to eat. You have to remember you are going...More

You know Fondue goes way back. For us it started in the sixties but it was always cheese. You put something on a fork and dipped it in the hot stuff. The Melting Pot has taken it up to another level. My wife and I...More

This was our second anniversary spent at Melting Pot and both experiences were outstanding. From the food, to the server, to the manager going out of his way to make sure it was special, we could not have asked for a better dinner. The service...More

We went here for my wife's birthday. The waiter Adam was great. I had the Champagne and strawberry package with her and it was perfect.

This is not a critique of the food (which has always been excellent) so much as the service and management. My family and I drove about 40 minutes to arrive there on a Sunday evening. We arrived shortly after 6:00. The restaurant was close to...More

Thank you for your review and honest criticism. It is not our custom to turn away business nor is it our practice to provide such a poor level of hospitality that your family received from our staff. For these things, I sincerely apologize. I will...More

The restaurant itself is nice and the service is good...it's just that you boil your food in a pot on your table. The meat can be very bland and can be tough if you overlook it. Not my idea of good food...at all. The chocolate...More
