I wasn't really looking forward to going here (date wanted to go there) but it ended up being a really nice place. Food was good, not spectacular. Service was very average. I'd definitely go there again!

One of the cheese dishes(white)and one of the meat dishes(red)had wine which was overpowering in taste. This was plenty of food for 4 people-in addition we dessert which was... More

We arrived at 6:00 for our reservation and were seated immediately. Server discussed options and the courses were brought out quickly. We never had to wait between courses. The manager even brought my son his own bowl of strawberries! We ordered the original cheese, salads, mojo cooking style and original chocolate. We even received an extra tray of goodies for...

We have been several times to The Melting Pot on the Plaza, both as a family and with business couples. I would say going as a family has been more fun. It's not for everyone but our girls always enjoy it. Typically we do it as a Christmas Holiday event as it is pretty pricy for just everyday. It is... More

We have gone to this Melting Pot many times in the past and for our anniversary, we decided to revisit it. Upon our arrival, we were seated at a table that had, along with multiple other tables, gnats flying around and a dirty menu. We requested a change of table and they promptly sat us down 4 tables down and... More

Dark rooms, secluded spaces. Great service. Good food. A bit pricey, but great for a special occasion.

Pricy for what you get but a fun experience. Took several hours to get through the meal. Chocolate fondu was the best part!

We've been to the Melting Pot several times for family celebrations. It's very pricey but we usually just order cheese & chocolate fondues and skip the other courses- fondue is what we're really wanting anyway. Call and ask for the price on this as it's not advertised on the menu. The restaurant gets a bit steamy due to all the... More
