Great experience, fantastic way to spend a few hours with friends and family. But VERY expensive! This is the kind of place to go for special occasions.

First time and last time there. My friend bought a Groupon for 50 dollars worth 92 dollars. Although the atmosphere was nice except for the maze in which you had to follow just to get back to the restroom at the front of the restaurant. The cheddar cheese which is supposed to be the favorite I could easily have made myself. The tiny cubes of very inexpensive bread, tiny carrots, tiny grapes, and cut peppers was very disappointing. Frankly for the prices I thought they would use a better cheese and better bread. Moving on to the bite size pieces of meat that you have to boil yourself which if you have ever had boiled meat you would know that it is pretty disgusting. The side dish which you also had to cook yourself consisted of raw purple potatoes which took forever and horrible squash and big mushrooms by the way about a small handful which would not have been enough for one person let alone for two...the only reason it was enough is because you don't actually want more. The only thing I liked was the desert which by the way we had to order it differently using milk chocolate instead of white chocolate. I would never suggest my boyfriend take me on a date to the melting pot. It is not romantic and the portion sizes are horrible and the boiled meat is disgusting.

I purchased a voucher from Groupon for "The Melting Pot". Ok, where do I start. First of all, I do have to commend them on their atmosphere. It's definitely a very romantic setting; however, if you're dining with just a friend, it would probably feel a bit awkward because it's certainly more suited for couples. As far as the food goes,...not impressed. You start off with a small cup consisting of 2 baby carrots, 3 pieces of broccoli and 3 pieces of cauliflower....and you have to share it with your date or whoever you're dining with. They throw in a few pieces of cubed sized bread and about a handful of chips to dip into the cheese fondue. The ceasar salad was just ok, but I've had better. When the main course finally arrived, I thought it was a joke; it was literally 4 "bite sized" pieces of chicken, 4 bite sized pieces of steak & filet minog and 4 shrimps. The serving size appeared to be for one person, but it was actually for 2 people....unbelievable! Don't come to this place hungry, because you won't be full. In addition to that, the meats arrived to the table raw & the main idea is for you to cook it yourself. The waiter gave us basic instructions stating that it takes 2 minutes to cook each piece of meat. My husband and I felt really awkward once we discovered that we had to cook our own food,...which by the way took more than 2 minutes for each piece of meat & even longer for the raw potatoes that they give you on the side. Once we were done with our dinner, which seemed like an appetizer; we looked forward to dessert since we purchased a 3 course meal voucher, but to our disappointment, dessert was not included and it costs a whopping $19. So considering we were already there, we decided to take the $19 plunge because the sound of chocolate fondue would've been the highlight of our evening. After much anticipation for dessert,...another "1" person serving intended for "2". A cup of strawberries (about 3 in total, cut bite sized), bite size brownies which were ice cold & needed to thaw, one small, thin piece of cheesecake (so if you both want a piece of cheesecake, you could flip a coin), 2 quarter sized pieces of pound cake & rice crispy treats & marshmallow, which we didn't want; so we asked if they can substitute it for an extra slice of cheesecake & they said no! I guess the trade off wasn't cost effective for them, so we were given a couple extra frozen brownies. It took so long to thaw, that I decided to remove the pot of chocolate off of the stove top and I put the plate of brownies on it to expedite the thaw process. This was totally not worth the money, even with the discount, which came to over $100 anyway. And there were disclosures that they don't tell you until you arrive which included the dipping options for the meats which they limit you to the 2 basic choices & we had to pay an extra $14 for the "garlic & citrus" dipping sauce which consisted of 1 lemon squeezed by the waiter & I didn't even taste the garlic. (Oh, & the dining time according to the restaurant is 1.5 hrs, but it took 2.5hrs for us....the longest dining experience I've ever had for so little food. Oh and to top it all off, our evening was interrupted by a crying baby a couple tables away. Who in the right mind would bring a baby there is beyond me. I'm a mother & I wouldn't bring my kid there. In a nutshell, this place is over priced and over rated. I will not be returning. Spare yourself the disappointment and go somewhere else.

We had a phenomenal meal here on Easter Sunday, 2010. The service was great, the steak, shrimp and chicken that we cooked in flavored broth was so lean and tender, the vegetables were fresh and delicious and the dessert was delectable. Also, they had an amazing deal- $28 for adults and $10 for kids (not including tax, tip or drinks). Deal of the week!! Highll, highly recommended!!!

I made a reservation on December 31st in order to be sure I will have a table for January 1st at 7:00pm, so I got it; when we arrived to the melting Pot at 7:04pm our surprise was that the manager told us we have to wait 20 minutes for our table. After 45 minutes waiting I spoke with the manager and he told me we have to wait 5 to 10 minutes more, unbelievable!!!! I explained to him that I made a reservation to be sure that I will have a table waiting for me and my family, not to be US waiting for the table, finally we went into our table at 8:15pm. In addition to this, the horrible strong smell all over the place, like curry and spices,( like an Indian restaurant) that got stick in all our clothing. The attention was not to bad considering that we have at the beginning one waitress and over the night we were served for three different waitresses. The food was nothing special, the portions very tiny and the waiting between one course and other was so long, we finished around 10:30pm.Considering that I paid about $50 per person I expected something better. The idea for me to bring my kids to this place was to celebrate my daughter's birthday with a different and "Unique " experience........very bad, I do not recommend this place and we are not going anymore there.

The bad: 1) Be prepared to waste about 5 hours of you life! Yes, 5 hours... for dinner... 2) They messed up my reservation (and then messed up the messed up reservation) and made me and my guest wait for almost 1 1/2 hours to be seated; 3) After we were seated, they made us move; 4) We had to wait an additional 20 minutes to see a waitress; 5) Confusing menu; 6) EXTREMELY SUGARY SWEET FOOD, that was mixed with garlic and at least 20 other conflicting flavors and spices. 7) Waited FOREVER to actually get our food (and the restaurant was half empty, furthermore, you get your food raw so I don't understand what is taking so long, especially since they are not really cooking anything. 8) The drink/beer/wine selection must have been put together by a sadist with the intension of further ruining your palate because none of them were selected with the fact that you would be pairing your beverage with your meal. 9) You usually burn your mouth on the food you are boiling in front of you because you are so unbelievably hungry (Due to the fact that by the time you get your raw food and sit there boiling it, that you put it in your mouth to quickly without letting it cool off). 10) You get pushed to try the Chocolate fondue (priced at $17) and you get yet another steaming pot of overpriced high fructose corn syrup that is "chocolate colored" together with a plate with some marshmallows and some crappy Rice Crispy treats. Perfect recipe for a huge stomach and tooth ache; 11) You leave smelling like all the food that was just boiled in front of you. If your a girl with long hair, forget about it smelling nice and your hair being straight after all that steam from the fondu pot gets to it! The good: 1) Our waitress was friendly. My recommendation- AVOID EVEN IF THEY ARE PAYING YOU TO EAT THERE!

I love unique, niche restaurants like this, so I might be biased.

Food was very fresh. flavor combos were good and interesting. I had the beer flyer and loved it. The service was very well done but a bit long winded with so many explanations but I believe it is because of the fondue high heat. Either that or the servers go through a Melting Pot boot camp. The atmosphere is relaxed but really I recommend this place for larger parties of 4-6. I got the manager to give me a tour of the place, quite impressive - there is a lovers' lane! Value wise, Cost- expensive, but best to get the extras. I have started to use my MP rewards card but still a bit pricey, better plan ahead. Get Coupons!
