The atmosphere here is second to none. There is none of the hurrying-you-away-from-the-table that is so common to American dining. The salads were incredibly fresh, and the meat/seafood marinates are both complex and subtle. The experience encourages guest interaction. It's a group experience!

Went here for my wife's birthday. Was a little worried about how this would work out because she doesn't eat red meat. Because the whole table has to cook your meat in the same pot, I knew she wouldn't want to cook her shrimp with my steak. I ordered steak and shrimp so we cooked all of the shrimp first... More

While driving to dinner at a different restaurant in Brookfield the previous evening, we noticed a banner hanging outside of The Melting Pot stating that they were now open from 12-4:00 on Sundays. Having never been here before, we went to their website to check out the menu beforehand and noticed that there was prix fixe brunch menu on Sundays.... More

Thank you for taking the time to leave us some feedback. I will be sure to work with my team on the areas of concern that you noted. Sunday lunches are still new to us and we do tend to slow down on Sundays for lunch and dinner during football season. More

I brought my husband here to celebrate his birthday. This was our first time coming and we did not know what to expect. All the two hours that I had to make reservations and we're lucky to have gotten one. Upon entering, greeters were very welcoming and nice. I loved the atmosphere. It's was very personal and I felt as... More

This was my first experience and didn't really know what to expect. Our waiter Kevin, was awesome and patience. He explained everything. The food was tasty, but I was not impressed that we all had to choose the same liquid to cook our food in. I do not like seafood and several people ordered that and didn't like the meat... More

We took our nephew here for the first time for his high school graduation dinner. Our server was Myriah and she was outstanding. The manager named Eric came by to also check on things. The server walked through everything and every course step by step & was so patient and informative. We enjoyed it so much we brought back a... More

Monday night on Memorial Day gave us a special night to celebrate an anniversary and completing a Masters program. The special included a bottle of wine, cheese fondue, salads, the main meal AND desserts to dip. Oh, my! Very Good!! Made our double celebration very special! Look at all of the food!

I have only been to the Melting Pot to enjoy the chocolate fondue. It is divine. If you don't care for one of the options, they will substitute something else for you. Always good service and it is delicious!

Had a reservation but when we arrived they lost it. Sat us anyway as it was not that busy. Waiter, Liam, explained the specials and helped us order. He listed all the flavored lemonades without hesitating. He did fabulous and kept dinner moving nicely. Afterward we found out it was his 3rd day on the job. Seemed like he had... More

Went with my wife and another couple. The food was mostly pretty good but we ran out of cheese before we ran out of stuff to dip in it and we ran out of chocolate WAY before. The waiter was nice enough but definitely wasn't about to give us more cheese or chocolate. We've been there with just two people... More
