I used my groupon and they charge an automatic gratuity. Then our waiter/bartender did not provide our drinks in time. No one explained the breakdown of the different fondues. I'm disappointed with the service plus kids running around did not make the experience better.

I got a groupon for this place as a gift. It's one of the best places to bring a date to. Definitely get a wine with your food, it's worth it and their suggestions are great. It's really fun to see them put the cheese into the bowl and swirl it around. The waiters are very nice and attentive. My date actually preferred this over any fancy restaurant where you just sit and eat.

Love this place! We go here for my birthday all the time and the staff is very nice, the atmsophere is fun and elegant, and the food is delicious. It's so fun to cook your own food and eat it at the same time! :-)

It was my first time being here and it was a lot better than what I expected. My sister and I had fun tonight. We were greeted kindly by Kyle and then by another server, unfortunately I didn't get her name though. She was very informative and patient with my sister and I. Overall, the 4 course option was good, but I really loved the chocolate fondue. I liked the setting of the restaurant, especially the dimmed lighting, and the booths were cozy. It's rare for me to go out, but I'd definitely go again.

Dec 28th, food was adequate, waiter was pleasant and nice. Restaurant itself was unkepmpt, not very good ambiance. Pricey menu did not meet our expectations for this restaurant.

Went here with a Groupon deal and enjoyed it. It's overpriced, but anybody that's heard of Melting Pot should already know that you don't go there for a cheap date. Staff was welcoming and food was decent. I'll go back but I'm not in a rush to get there.

I would give a zero if I could. I will start off by saying that I have been a Melting Pot customer for ~25 years. It is a favorite place to celebrate birthdays and festive occasions. As the Melting Pot in San Jose has closed, we recently attempted to book a reservation at this establishment for my husband's birthday. We called to make a reservation and provided a credit card number before realizing that they would not provide a larger than 2 burner table for a party of 9. My husband told them he would call them back. We had a discussion and decided to book another venue as 9 people using 2 pots is unacceptable. My husband called back to cancel ~90 seconds later. The calls were made 9 days prior to desired party date. 4 days after the proposed date, my card was charged $225 (it posted to my account 2 days later). Keep in mind, I never signed an agreement, received any confirmation phone calls from the restaurant or any calls asking why we did not show up. In calling to review this situation, we have gotten nothing but the run around and excuses for why they could not talk to us, who we needed to talk to, etc. We have talked to manager and owner and submitted electronic records of phone calls to the restaurants (go Google Voice!), and they will not budge. Do NOT give this establishment your credit card! I have now filed a dispute with my credit card number. They really screwed the pooch, I was a loyal, lifelong customer!
