Such a cool experience. We had a new server who was totally in the weeds the whole time we were there. I was a little disappointed, because I’ve been to the melting pot several times and know what the service should be like. This was...More

This place always serves up a good meal. Make sure you ask for a table with new burners as the old ones rarely work well. Highly recommend the big night out! Really, everything is good. Come hungry!

Lovely, unique dining experience that is worth the seemingly higher prices. The staff treat everyone like VIP and diners can enjoy all courses for a meal or go for just cheese or chocolate fondue. Very worth it.

Food and service are excellent. It is pricey - in the end you are probably going to spend at least $40 person excluding tip, tax and drinks.More

Nothing worse then walking into a restaurant that is empty and being told that the next table won't be available for two hours. The hostess was ignorant and I will never return.More
