My magnificent wife surprised me with a trip down Memory Lane with A Valentine Celebration at Melting Pot! Seventeen years ago we had our first Valentine Celebration at a Melting Pot in Atlanta. Tonight was exceptional. There are many choices from veggie to surf and turf entrees. We enjoyed Ahi Tuna, Salmon, and Shrimp as one. Entree and the other... More

Great meal shared with Friends! I have been to All 3 AZ locations and have NOT been Disappointed. Enough choices that even though we had to 'share' some of the items (like which flavor 'broth' to cook in) there were choices that everyone was happy with. GREAT service and nice atmosphere. If you go for a special occasion you can... More

"Despite a minor issue at the onset with the number of people in our reservation, the service was outstanding. Mary, our server, was very efficient and took great care of us during the entire meal. Emily stopped by the table to make sure everything was perfect, which it was. And Tony was great at helping us secure a box of... More

Always enjoy sharing this place with friends. The fondue (cheese and chocolate) are always good with lots of dippers. If you can get a seat at the bar you get "happy hour" prices on the fondues, salads and some drinks all day. Jason did a good job of taking care of us on a busy night. However somebody needs to...

We go to The Melting Pot typically once a year for the past 13 years on our engagement anniversary, as this is where we got engaged. We only go once a year because we like the full four-course meal and it can get very . If you make reservations or check in ask for a private booth it's always more... More

This restaurants dark rooms make seeing the menu a challenge(view it online prior to going). Presentation pleasant, servers nice. The food could have been better, the apple spinach should have been cut more appropriately so that getting food on the fork isn't such a challenge. Didn't like the dressing. The cheese course was good, salads so so, the entree tuna... More

Came in for a drink and some dessert while out studying with a friend, and Johnny made a killer drink! We also decided on a cheese and it did not disappoint! Will absolutely come back here on another study afternoon, perfect setting for it at the bar. The manager came by to make sure everything was going great-- which it... More

We decided to take my son and daughter in law out for dinner here since they enjoyed it the last time they went out for a nice dinner. The service was excellent and informative. The food was very good and the uniqueness is the "calling card" for this restaurant. A little expensive for what you receive and I would rather... More

We love this place! Great food and wonderful service. The Turtle Chocolate dessert is the best. We always get cheddar cheese and dessert.

The Melting Pot Restaurant is where fun is cooked up fondue style.

Romantic for Couples and Great in a Group.

Our Scottsdale restaurant is easily accessible from the 101. About one mile West on Via De Ventura in the Commons at Hayden Plaza.

The modern yet warm casually elegant atmosphere sets the mood for a relaxing evening. The leisurely paced four-course experience begins with a cheese fondue prepared table side. A fresh salad follows while your entrée pot heats up. You’ll simmer a variety of tantalizing meats, seafood and vegetables. Each morsel is hot, fresh and delicious and all entrées are accompanied by an array of dipping sauces to add to the flavorful fun. Chocolate fondue is the finale, all 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. Hand crafted cocktails and great wine list.
