Host was not accommodating for birthday party, 11 people arrived early last night and were turned away at #TheMeltingPot. Very unfortunate especially since the "customers" were flexible to break up the party into two groups and I called to try to reschedule for a weekday. Heard too many excuses.. . not worth a third try.

A horrible experience. We called for reservations and were told walk ins were ok and there were tables open. When we arrived, tables were indeed open but the maitre d' / manager told us there were not enough servers and that we had to sit at the bar for a half hour. Obvious ploy to get people into the restaurant and order drinks. Their bar charges were way out of line and the bartender was a total jerk. The food is bland and I agree with another reviewer that you could do better in a microwave. I'll never go back.

I had an amazing experience! The food was great, the experience was great! The server made us feel like the most important people in that restaurant! Over all 6 out of 5 but I could only put 5 out of 5!

I love the melting pot. First of all, yes it is pretty pricey but our overall first experience was fantastic. We didn't have reservations, but we did go right when it opened and on a Sunday, so seating was not a problem. We actually got a table rather quickly. Our server was Eugene. Such a great server. He makes me want to go again! :) We order the four-course classic-- pricey, bill came out to be $100+ with tax and tip. Melting pot is the place for special occasions. I know they made our visit very special. I felt almost pampered and well informed about their menu, and they gave out great recommendations~! The food, oh my word, wow the food was great. We got the lager cheese fondue, a new fondue they were offering at the time. It was good. I like the bits of scallions in the cheese, it gave the bread and apples a little spunk to the taste. Something different then the normal cheese fondues I have had in the past. Then we got the Spinach Mushroom Salad, so goooood. Had nuts and everything you ever want/need in a salad. And then for the entree we got Sesame-Crusted Sushi-Grade Ahi Tuna, Tender Shrimp, Seasoned Choice Angus Sirloin, Herb-Crusted Chicken Breast and Teriyaki-Marinated Sirloin. Yeah...I'm hungry again, LOL! Just don't over cook the meat and you're good. So our server, Eugene, told us to cook the mushrooms for a few minutes then sprinkle some garlic salt with a dab of the creamy herb sauce... WOW, the most amazing mushrooms I have ever had in my life. And finally, we had to try the traditional chocolate fondue. Delicious! Great night, despite how slow we ate. We stayed there for almost 4 hours, crazy. Overall, I love this Melting Pot and will go again!

WASTE OF MONEY+TIME!!!! We made a reservation for four at the Melting Pot in Whippany (8pm). When we got there, almost exactly 8pm, we were told that our table was not ready and we could go to the bar. At the bar we ordered one round of cocktails. Before the last of the group was to get her drink the hostess came over to tell us we could be seated. We let her know that we would wait for our drink and then meet her at the front to be seated. She left and came back a few seconds later (still before the last drink was served) and informed us that if we "waited too long" our "table would be given to someone else." So even though they were not ready for us when we showed up and instructed us to the bar, they would give up our table if we did not hustle to our table. When we got to the table we waited there without being seen by a waiter for (no exaggeration) 10 minutes. 10 minutes before a waiter showed up. Rushed for no reason. Should have left right there....but we didnt...instead we spoke with the Owner/Manager of the establishment. Seemed like everything would be smoothed out and our evening could continue, paying too much to cook our own food and whatnot. That was not the case. It may be safe to say that the owner of this place Kathy has little to no business sense. She came to our table trying to be funny and telling us about our server Eugene who was amazing, winning some stupid contests they have amongst themselves at the Melting Pot. Turns out this amazing server was not our server, instead it was Jake ( who was actually really nice). So, Kathy tells us she is going to smooth things over by....wait for it....expediting the process and explaining the menu, giving us her expert opinions on the food, and taking our order. When we asked if we could substitute one meat for another, she explained that there would be an up charge. We asked, in light of our situation if they could wave this fee. She told us she had no control over that charge and could not....at this point I wanted to leave...but did not want to ruin the experience for everyone so stuck it out. After taking our order...Kath asked me if I wanted another Vodka Martini. I told her that I did not, because I was going to be doing the driving. Five minutes after ordering our food she came to the table with a complimentary Vodka Martini for me, even though I was the designated driver, and nothing for the other three people. So weird...p.s.--the up charge fees that we asked her to wave woulld have been around $5 and the drink was like $12...so how she couldnt just wave the fees like we asked I dont understand and I guess never will. Best part of the whole thing was Kathy explained to me (the driver) that I should have the other drink because there was so much FAT in all of the food that I would be eating, if I "nurse" the drink some miracle metabolic reaction would take place, then I could safely drive all of the other people home. Haha...ridiculous...this lady is a BOOB...I have no idea how she is the owner...Overall a nightmare of an experience at this place...I will say that it was a novel idea and could have been a good time...but with the pricing and the service...I would not send anyone here without really worrying about what lady Karma would do to me. DONT GO!!!!

Amazing from the greeting to the check. My wife and I celebrated our anniversary with our children and enjoyed every minute. The staff was friendly and helpful. The meal was excellent. They had some pleasant surprises for us for our anniversary. We look forward to going back. Thank you Mark,Erin,Kelly and the rest of the staff.
