Description: At The Melting Pot, fondue is more than a signature dish. It's a culinary tradition that we honor every day - and have spent 40 years perfecting. And thanks to our dedication to our craft, that tradition is still going strong and attracting new fans today. Fondue is more than just a meal. It's an experience. And that's what The Melting Pot does best. Whether you're celebrating a birthday, anniversary, a long overdue date night, or celebrating with a group, The Melting Pot Restaurant is perfect for any occasion. Customize your visit with a four-course dining experience including cheese fondue, salad, entree and dessert. Or, come by for fondue cheese paired with that perfect glass of wine from our extensive selection. That's not to say, we haven't had more than a few stop by to satisfy that chocolate craving after a movie.

At the encouragement of our son who has dined at The Melting Pot on several occasions,we thought we'd try Fondue for New Years Eve. Never having dined this way before, we were delighted to discover that it was way more than a dining experience. It was an event.
Food was delicious, service was wonderful and our New Years Eve was certainly one that we will remember for some time.
Their teriyaki sauce was amazing.

We went for Friendsgiving dinner the night before Thanksgiving and Lance was awesome! Very attentive! My wife has a severe seafood allergy and Lance was able to set up a portable burner on our table so that she could have a separate cooking style for her entree so that our friend and I could still enjoy our seafood! He also made sure that she had plenty of chicken and ravioli to eat to make up for the seafood she could not have. He was training a new server and did a great job explaining how to serve a great fondue meal! He also brought us extra marshmallows because those are our favorites! Great service!

If you want a unique (pricy) dinner, highly recommend.

We always enjoy Melting Pot and have been to them all over the country. Great food and they prepare it right in front of you. As far as atmosphere goes, this one wasn't as nice as others. We were underdressed when we arrived and were definitely given the stink eye by the greeters when we walked in...

We had a four course meal. The Quattro Formagio was good, but we prefer the Spinach Artichoke cheese. For the cooking style, we really like the Court Boullion. The Wild Mushroom Sacchetti was excellent! The Vegetables Polpettes were not good... The texture was off putting and the fennel was overpowering. To finish it all off, we love the Smores!

We have been here several times. It is always fabulous. Never disappoints. Great staff. They make certain all is well. Very attentive. This is a good couples place and friends place. Don’t be in a hurry. Come to relax. Leave the little children at home with a Happy Meal, EVERYONE will be happier. Oh! And the food is great too!

I wasn't sure I was going to like eating nothing but cheese all night. Boy was I wrong. There was so much more than just cheese in a pot. The entrees were pretty tasty and have your own chocolate dipping party afterwards is AMAZING. This is definitely a must try for a foodie!
