I have been to the Melting pot several times and I typically have a decent experience. This time, I booked a reservation for Mothers Day and my experience was not a pleasant one. There were 4 adults in our party and I thought we would get 4 adults worth of dessert fondue dippers etc. What we received was about the... More

Spent my birthday dinner here with family and had a delicious meal. My husband ordered roses and when we were escorted to our table they had them on the table. We had the Alpine cheese fondue with bread, veggies and apples - which was delicious. Next followed salads which were just the right size and tasty. I ordered surf and... More

Great food and service once we were there. Only complaint was when I called earlier that day to increase our reservation from 4-5 people, they were not going to let me do it. Our reservations were at 430 on a Monday and they said they could not accommodate that many people. I finally got a managers approval and we were... More

The last time my family visited The Melting Pot was over 6 months ago so I thought I would add another review on the restaurant. It seems Groupon comes out with a deal for Melting Pot every 5 months or so, so you can save a little bit of money getting the deals. This time, the deal was for a... More

We sat in the bar, which accommodates cheese, salad and chocolate. There was zero wait to sit in the bar and we had a comfortable high table right next to the fireplace, which was perfect. Our waitress was very busy, but she stayed attentive. I ordered the Wisconsin blend cheese, which was a tasty cheddar blend. Also had the Californian... More

This is a fun place to eat if you want to experience a Fondue (cook-it-yourself) restaurant. The waiters/waitresses are very knowledgeable and helpful. There are many items to choose from on the menu.

It was a family night out; we went to The Melting Pot in Tacoma. We all had a great time; the staff was excellent and helped us with the adventure. The Melting Pot is a fondue place so you are cooking yourself which added to the fun. We had gotten a Groupon for this visit, saved some dollars. We all... More

We frequent the Melting Pot once every month or two. We tend to go on a Monday night to avoid the usual weekend rush. They do offer valet parking so you can rest assured that you have a parking spot. Service is great, food even better! We always ask for Chase... we's a great server. I enjoy the cooking broth,... More

The atmosphere and service are always good. Our waitress was nice and the busers cleared the table in a timely manner. They are very good at explaining the courses and how cooking works. They did recently change their menu and I know at least they got rid of the banana foster dessert, which really was the only reason I went... More
