My wife and I were there tonight. (12-26-2012) I am absolutely appalled that a restaurant of this caliber treated us so poorly. First, we showed up and there wasn't a hostess. We waited for well over five minutes until someone showed up. We did not have reservations but the host said that it would not be a problem. She would seat us in 5-10 minutes. So we patiently waited, 20 minutes went by, she apologized and said she would get seat us in 5 minutes. We again, waited patiently, 10 more minutes went by, my wife went up to the desk and asked her if the table was ready. She said she was sorry once again and the manager said it would be another 15 minutes! We then left and will not be returning.

EXTREMELY EXPENSIVE!! The food is ok at best. We had the big night out for $87 and 2 glasses of wine, a beer and two sodas. $156.00 with tip. Three hours it took to get through about 3 oz steak, 3 oz chicken, four shrimp, 3oz pork, and a very small lobster tail. Salad was iceberg wedge. Desert was chocolate fondue with marshmallows to dip. The server we had was new and extremely slow. Took forever to get drinks. There is a reason I go once about every three takes that long to forget what a poor value it is.

Fantastic and delicious!!! We almost did not come because the reviews said you don't get much food. We are stuffed! It is pricey to eat here ($130 w/ 3 courses and drinks), but you're paying for the phenomenal experience like you would for a Japanese steak house. The atmosphere is romantic and intimate. The booth walls are high for privacy, the tables have granite counter tops, and each table has it's own little induction stove top. Plus the restrooms have mouthwash in it! The servers are very knowledgeable and friendly. Our water glasses were filled without having to ask and our plates cleared in a timely manner. The meats were all prime cuts and well seasoned! You also get bottomless vegetables. We will be returning for our special occasions.

I only go here for a special nite. Always ask for seating in Lovers Lane.

I do not understand why people love this restaurant so much! It's so ridiculously overpriced and the food is pretty mediocre. I went here for Valentine's Day dinner with my boyfriend and had no reservations about plunking down $100 for a romantic meal. It was not a meal worthy of $100, or anything even close. The cheese fondue for our appetizer had more wine in it than cheese. Really, it was a pathetic amount of cheese. You get apple slices and bread to dip into it. Then the main course, which is an assortment of meat, broccoli, and potatoes. It tasted great, especially the shrimp, but was it worth $30?? NO. just...NO. I mean, All they basically did was cut it up and give you something to poach it in. I'm not paying for a whole lot of service! The real clincher was the chocolate dessert, which was $30. There were very few strawberries and cheesecake bites to dip in; it was mostly just marshmallows and rice krispy treats. YES. RICE KRISPY TREATS. What the heck. What's more, it takes so long to cook everything that by the time me and my lovely Michael were done eating, three hours in a dimly lit room had gone by. I've been to many restaurants where I plunked down $100 for a meal for two, so I have a pretty good idea of how good the food of that price should be. I would not go back to Melting Pot again, and I have no idea why anyone else would. Do yourself a favor and buy a fondue pot ($40), your own high-quality cheese($20) your own meats ($20), better chocolate and more strawberries ($20). It's a much, much better value and it'll be way more fun. AND IT WILL TASTE BETTER!

There is just something about Fondue that my husband and I find as a romantic dinner. You don't feel rushed, it is spaced out between courses so that you are not so full by the time your entree' arrives. How can you not like the chocolate fondue with banana's, brownies, pound cake, strawberries and more!! Nice selection to choose from different cheeses, oils, and chocolate. I highly recommend Melting Pot.
