Paid for 3 four course meals with one person being gluten free. Instead of seating us at a table with 2 burners they sat us in a booth with one. We had to adjust our choices so we didn't cross contaminate her food. If we had set at separate tables we would have gotten separate deserts but instead had to... More

Will never return again. Overpriced and food is very bland. No flavor. Atmosphere okay, service okay. Food is terrible I cannot believe we did not get sick after eating here thought for sure we would!

The Melting Pot brand is known throughout the United States for its amazing food and romantic atmosphere. From the minute you walk in the room you notice their Florida ceiling wine rack this small yet intimate setting really sets the course for romantic dining. If you're fortunate enough to find a Groupon take full advantage of it plan on spending... More

We had a groupon for The Melting Pot. Yep - that's about the only way we get out these days. I was kind of excited about going here because we had been once before and really enjoyed it. My husband made reservations and we got there a few minutes late, but there were plenty of tables open. We were starving... More

First and foremost our server Timothy was excellent . We used a Groupon to try the place and we were not too impressed . When we ordered the sirloin we were given two bit sized pieces . I wouldn't recommend paying to do a broth upgrade as your food is not cooked long enough to absorb the flavor . I'm... More

My husband and I have been going here for our anniversary for the past 13 years. We have taken our parents here and friends. I absolutely love everything from the cheese, to the salads, entrees, sauces and chocolate. I look forward to coming here. We have gone just for dessert as well. The service is always excellent.

If you haven't been to the Melting Pot, you may wonder what the big deal is about having a fondue meal. Time consuming, right? Messy, right? Well, I can tell you it's the perfect place for families with grown children, friends, or that romantic dinner. Start with a well stocked bar, then the first meal of cheese fondue. Each individual...

A non-refundable Valentine's Day deposit is ridiculous, but necessary (I guess). This was my first time at the Melting Pot and I felt it was overrated. Yes, it's a romantic atmosphere and very quaint, but not worth the price.

The staff, management and food are EXCELLENT at the Melting Pot in Schaumburg!! I'm in the service industry myself and they exceeded my expectations which is hard to do!! I had a special request and they were very flexible and accommodating. I was there with a friend and we were both celebrating our Birthdays. The Melting Pot staff made it... More

Apparently time heals all wounds, but this restaurant at this location has once again earned an average from me. Plus: I enjoyed the food. The spinach/artichoke cheese, caesar salad, original meatx2 and the heath crunch chocolate. Our table server did a good job also. BUT: The "vegetables" portion of the cheese course is pretty paltry vs. bread/apples. Bigger issue: we... More
