I love this restaurant! The entire staff is wonderful and accommodating. They provided flowers and a picture as a gift. Some people get the idea with fondue that you won't get your moneys is a four course meal. You will leave completely satisfied.

Honestly, I don't know how this place is rated so high. Obviously if you've read reviews you know it is over priced, but we are talking about a ridiculous charge for what you get. Serving sizes are small, tastes are bland, and you can't really just walk in. We tried that and were told they recommend having a reservation, but they have happen to have room for us... the parking lot was nearly empty! Admittedly, the atmosphere is cool, and kinda romantic. But then they ruin it with cheesy gimmicks, like doing a flambe with your fondue. After your meal you get this stupid game to see if you win a coupon for your next meal; as if they know they are a one time dinning experience. They give you cooking times for meat but give you know way to time it. They have this huge wine room, in the dining room, with glass walls to show off a wine collection that is only reasonable for a wine bar. The Melting Pot needs to come down a few pegs, they need to stop trying to be a Michelin star restaurant, and review the local demographic. They are not in a rich part of town, the Fox Cities are primarily middle class, and honestly, if I were rich, I would not waste my money on this wannabe restaurant anyway. They price like they have Gordon Ramsay as their head chef... that does nothing but cut veggies and meat... All this said, it is kind of a cool experience if you 70 bucks to throw away, but you're not likely to return again. It's basically an over priced novelty restaurant with food that doesn't merit the charge.

By far my favorite place. Great food, drinks, professional wait staff. It is expensive so be prepared for that. I'm surprised by the bad reviews. If you don't like fondue, go somewhere else!

Good food but the price is pretty high for what you get.

My first time there for my Birthday. The staff were great, the GM table touched us a couple times and once with a free app. when I come back. Food was awesome, and our server was top notch. Prices are equal to value and table time. Decor and ambiance were great.Thanks! We'll be back for sure.
