The Melting Pot execs have a handle on what it means to create amazing dining experiences. The service we had (with Tristan and Josh) was impeccable and beyond professional. The menu includes choices of making ANY combination of a meal you might want: Asian flavors? Check. Caribbean mojo? Got it. European styles? Yes. Add Cajun and an array of cheeses... More

The fondue appatizers are awesome. My kids were not fans but my husband and I loves it. It's a more grown up taste and less a queso taste like the kids expect. The restaurant is cozy. The staff did a fine job. I will saw the menu is pricey. Don't plan to get out under 100.00 for 3 people. The... More

We were celebrating my daughter's 19th birthday and we had a party of 7. We had only 2 pots for our table so keep in mind you will only be able to choose 2 options for the pots. So you will have to compromise on choices. The server said that the 4 course experience is made for 1 person but... More

We always make a reservation and have always been promptly seated at the time made. Our server was Tony and he was excellent. He took the time to explain how the meal would run to my nephew who was a first-timer. Tony went above and beyond to make his 18th birthday special. You can customize our experience by changing the... More

We met up with some friends to try out the Melting Pot. We went for the 4-course meal and found everything to be quite delicious. The meal started with cheese fondue, you can choose your own cheese combination and also order a small meat platter if you like. Bread is provided. We then had a small salad. I highly recommend...

Description
The Melting Pot Restaurant is where fun is cooked up fondue style. Whether you’re celebrating a birthday, anniversary, long overdue date night or celebrating with a group. We are the premier fondue restaurant, centrally located on Westheimer, providing a casually elegant dining experience and an intimate atmosphere. The relaxing four-course experience begins with a cheese fondue prepared table side and fresh salads while your entrée pot heats up. You’ll simmer a variety of meats, seafood and vegetables in the cooking style of your choice. Each morsel is hot, fresh and delicious and all entrées are accompanied by an array of dipping sauces. Chocolate fondue is the finale, served with decadent dippers. Most make reservations for the four-course dining experience but more than a few have stopped by to satisfy that cheese fondue or chocolate craving. The Melting Pot also features a great wine list, specialty cocktails and martinis.
