A very neat experience. We chose a 4 course meal and loved every part of it. Very cozy, private dining experience.

The food was excellent. My date reserved a private room - it was off the main dining room, very private so you could talk and not have the distractions of other diners. Our server was good but she talked way too much, we were trying to have a nice first date dinner and get to know each other - we... More

Went here for a 34th anniversary because we went here when we were dating. It was OK but not stellar. Too much garlic and too little cheese in the cheese fondue although we had plenty of bread, veggies and apples to dip. We skipped the entre ...from experience we know that is too much food for us. Wine list was... More

My husband and I have celebrated every wedding anniversary at Melting Pot. 26 of them in South Florida and the last 10 in Indianapolis. They are always tops in service and food. Don't pass them by.

I go out to eat quite a bit so this was a different experience for my family and I. My wife had received a gift card for christmas so we took our 3 and 5 year old daughters to the restaurant with us - expecting them to enjoy "dipping" their food. We knew it would take a long time, but... More

Such a fun, unique restaurant. Although it seems like a fancier place, which it absolutely is, we took our 4 year old daughter with us for a fun lunch and it was very family friendly. It's not a cheap place by any means, so be ready to pay up. If you wanted to try to keep it more affordable, do... More

I took my daughter for a college graduation celebration dinner and was very pleased with our food and overall dining experience. The food was delicious. They even placed a scroll congratulating her on her graduation on the table. The waiter was attentive, fun and friendly and the manager stopped by our table to give his congrats to my daughter.

We were there on Sunday around 1:00 pm in the afternoon and there were very few people there. Service was good, menu variety was outstanding. We had the four course meal; allow a couple of hours to enjoy the experience.

Great way to celebrate a birthday & fun place for children. More about the experience than the food. Overall the food is mediocre. Our favorite courses were the cheese and chocolate.
