We have been several times to The Melting Pot on the Plaza, both as a family and with business couples. I would say going as a family has been more fun. It's not for everyone but our girls always enjoy it. Typically we do it as a Christmas Holiday event as it is pretty pricy for just everyday. It is... More

Great food. Intimate setting if needed. Fabulous staff who explain everything. Recommend The Melting Pot to anyone who loves fondue. Lots of food too with a four course meal

We have gone to this Melting Pot many times in the past and for our anniversary, we decided to revisit it. Upon our arrival, we were seated at a table that had, along with multiple other tables, gnats flying around and a dirty menu. We requested a change of table and they promptly sat us down 4 tables down and... More

Dark rooms, secluded spaces. Great service. Good food. A bit pricey, but great for a special occasion.

Pricy for what you get but a fun experience. Took several hours to get through the meal. Chocolate fondu was the best part!

We've been to the Melting Pot several times for family celebrations. It's very pricey but we usually just order cheese & chocolate fondues and skip the other courses- fondue is what we're really wanting anyway. Call and ask for the price on this as it's not advertised on the menu. The restaurant gets a bit steamy due to all the... More

Made a reservation on Open Table for a party of 9. They do a few extras for a birthday so I chose a birthday balloon bouquet for $25 that was nicely displayed at the table. We sat at a large table and had 3 burners available so we could choose 3 different cheeses and 3 different chocolate sauces. The menu... More

This is the third time we have been here. We kept wanting to give it another chance because the food is really good but this was the last time we will be here. Once again we had a reservation and still had to wait 20 minutes to be seated. Then we waited 10 minutes before anyone stopped by the table.... More
