I've wanted to go here forever. Atmosphere of restaurant was terrific and had a romantic vibe! Our waitress, can't remember her name, was outstanding and very knowledgeable! Everyone was friendly! Menu was confusing being it was my first visit, but again, waitress was fantastic in...explaining every detail! We weren't rushed and did 4 courses. It took about 2.5 hours and we consumed a ton of food! Lol The 1st course we chose our cheese fondue and it was amazing! It came with a huge platter of different breads and cold veggies to dip. It was great! Next were individual, large salads. I got the house and my date got the ceasar, both really good. Followed by the main course, a HUGE, HUGE platter of, shrimp, salmon, filet mignon, sirloin, teriyaki chicken, mushrooms wrapped in dough (outstanding) and regular chicken. Red potatoes and huge mushrooms. We had 2 pots, both broth based. You place your chicken, meat or fish on a skewer and put it in the boiling broth for roughly 3 minutes, that you time on your cell phone. Pull it out and eat it. Everything was REALLY....idk. tasted like you threw a steak in a pot of soup with no seasoning for 3 minutes and then ate it. No A -1. It's very $$$$$ The steak/chicken wasn't juicy, had no flavor. The red potatoes and mushrooms were also completely plain. No butter, nothing, just boiled. The final course was chocolate fondue. It was very yummy. It came with a giant platter with literally everything you could think of to dip, from marshmallows, fruit, brownies, pound cake, rice krispie treats and a bunch of other things. If you go here, don't eat all day before you go. So you can enjoy the full experience. I'm glad I went and saw what it was all about. It's definitely something different to do!More

Service was great but we were charged for a drink we did not order so I would check your bill. The food was good but not great. Lots of people were having a great time.

My husband and I have not been to a restaurant since Covid hit in February 2020. We decided to venture out for the first time to the Melting Pot as it is one of our favorite places. Patrick was our server and made us feel...comfortable and at ease. Tables and patrons were appropriately spaced. The food was amazing and we ate way too much. I can’t wait for a return visit.More
