The cheese was delicious, we had the Wisconsin Cheese. The salads were great and our server gave us suggestions as to how to improve them. We had the Minneapolis Fusion which was good but we enjoyed the Land and Sea entree more. Our server also gave us a few pointers on how to improve our sauces for dipping our entrees that was fantastic. The Pure Chocolate (Milk Chocolate) dessert was fabulous. Our server Jennifer was absolutely amazing! I have never had a server be so attentive and friendly. She was always prompt with our food and made us feel like we were her only table, even though she was busy. She helped give us hints on what would taste good with our entrees and salads. She was so friendly and was genuinely interested in what we had to say and really connected with us. We were out celebrating our four year anniversary and she was the cherry on top of our fantastic night. We weren't sure where to go for the night but we are so glad that we choose The Melting Pot and got Jennifer as our server, she is the best waitress either of us have ever had.

My wife and daughter love this place... It's not really for me. Plus it's really expensive and the food is not really that fancy... Just raw meat you soak in hot water. Atmosphere is real nice. Wait staff is nice... The food is just not my cup of tea.

Thank you for the feedback, not quite hot water, we save that for the cup of tea!

Not a great experience. Sat in the lounge at 4:30, only two other groups & not one employee greeted us (even though a greeter sat at a desk 5 feet from us). Walked out after more than 20 minutes of being ignored.

An overall fun experience with delicious food. Make sure you enjoy your companions company, as dinner can take a couple hours, in a good way.

Thanks Tim, we are glad you had fun!

Look. It's fondue. You can't expect a mind-blowing, professionally created meal that will leave you wanting more for weeks. After all, you cook your own food. For what it is, The Melting Pot is amazing. It's a unique culinary experience that one really can't get anywhere else. My fiance and I went to celebrate our anniversary. She had been to one in Michigan and this was my first Melting Pot excursion. From the get-go, the service was phenomenal...I mean it. The wait staff was incredibly polite and helped us navigate through the somewhat complicated menu. They were very attentive without being overbearing. Someone even swung by our table to wish us a happy anniversary. You can tell they strive to go above and beyond. The food was exactly what I expected -- nothing mind-blowing, but satisfying and delicious. I can't really even complain about the price...we each got a four course meal and three drinks. The total bill was just over $100.00. I'd highly recommend this place for any celebration, date night or if you just want to try something new and unique.

We found this place online and there wasn't any prices on their menu, so definitely not prepared for the prices. $30-40 per person and $10-15 drinks (wouldn't order those again, not worth it). The different courses and food were very good. Dessert was a lot of fun! Downside was the sheer amount of time it took to get our food. We stopped for lunch and were there 2.5 hours. The server explained the whole process, so I understand it taking so long when there are no chefs and the servers prepare all the dishes and broths in back, but they need an expediter or something!

It was good, not sure it was worth $70-$80 a person. I would expect tge restaurant to look much nicer for that kind of price tag. Also, our server messed up when she ran the card. We had 2 Authorizations on our account for $320 each for a total of $640 on hold for them. I called to just let the manager know that they should talk to the servers about proper charging procedures and he just wanted to argue with me and displace blame for it. I didn't want anything from them, especially an argument, lol. Needless to say, I won't be back because of Jarods reaction to my FYI. 2 stars for tasty, although over priced food.

There's certainly a problem when the after-dinner mint is the best part of the meal, by far. You're expected to pay upwards of $40 per person in order to BOIL a few pieces of meat--in the same tasteless broth as everyone else at your table. The atmosphere is also eerily similar to a few Perkins restaurants I've had the misfortune of frequenting. I reccommend going to Chipotle and getting a scrumptious burrito for under $10.
