We had never tried the Melting Pot and when we saw that it was included in Dine Out Boston this month we decided to give it a try. First, our server was EXCELLENT .. he took the time to explain the menu, the different cooking broths/oils etc. He also was the "chef" in creating our first course of cheese fondu.... More

Hi pall48, Thank you very much for reviewing our restaurant, we very much appreciate you taking the time to do so! You can certainly ask to NOT sit in what we call "lover's lane" for future reference. They were created to really give someone the ultimate private dining experience, so they could enjoy their own company rather than everyone else's,... More

Went here for a Valentine's dinner and everything was very good. Nothing stood out as amazing. It was a nice change of pace from a normal style restaurant.

When the cold comes and you do not know where to go, enjoy the atmosphere and go eat a great fondue with varied choices, a clean and efficient cooking system to make this delicious meal a pleasant moment for family gatherings or friends. Romantic and priced lower than you think when you see the menu!

Everything was phenomenal during our time at the melting pot. We were there for three and a half hours which was a little bit excessive even though we had gone in expecting the meal to last longer than a traditional sit down dinner. Each course came out timed relatively well off of the previous one, there were very few times... More

Wow! This place is so over priced for what you get. It's an interactive dining experience, but not worth the price. What you do get for food is not very much. If you get an app, main meal and dessert, you might not leave hungry.

Go for the experience. Bring your girlfriends, have drinks.. this is a pricey adventure, bring your wallet. The bread and cheese is decadent, but trust me, that's all you need. The meat portion is divided between the entire restaurant, the cut is not good, you will tend to overcook as to undercook, really making it unpleasant. Remember, you are putting... More
