He had excellent recommendations and knew the menu option side and out all combined with a great demeanor.

Upon check in they wished him a Happy Birthday and presented us a card signed by all of the staff as well as a special birthday treat at the end - it was so sweet. Our waitress was incredible and so nice. She answered any questions we have and gave great recommendations. We did the four course meal for two. There was so much food!

There wasn’t enough cheese or chocolate which was disappointing as we only ate about half of the things to dip. They were out of cheesecake which we specially paid extra for. I’m not enthusiastic about spending $100+ to cook my own food lol but my husband thinks it’s fun so we’ll probably go again. I did like being able to sit and take our time talking rather than being rushed as in many other restaurants. It’s a unique and memorable experience for sure and that’s what I pay for while accepting that I’ll have to cook my own meat and vegetables.

We were hit with quite a few of those changes on this visit. Apparently they're changing from pretzel bites to these...mini breadsticks? Whatever they are, they are bland and tasteless. I need those Pretzel bites to remain please. For the cheese, we tried two as we were seated at a table with two burners. We ordered our all-time favorite, the Quattro Formaggio. We then tried the Fiesta Flambé. Shut the front door. It was amazing! I'll never be able to enjoy the cheese dip at the local Mexican dig because of this amazing dish. The green apples pair perfectly with it. Secondly, although they've removed the Caprese salad, much to my husband's disappointment, the Cesear and the California salads were still very enjoyable! Moving on to the main course: No changes here except for the dipping sauces. They've removed the Curry sauce (please bring it back) and added this spicy barbecue sauce. Guys, I get what you're going for but may I recommend checking out Sweet Baby Ray's Kickin' Bourbon. I think that's what you're trying to go for but didn't quite hit the mark. Sauces aside, the food was great. We used the Coq au Vin style and the grill. The grill was nice for the teriyaki beef since then the flavor didn't get washed away. For the chocolate, we had the Flaming Turtle. No complaints there! All in all, service was on the slower side but our needs were still met and the experience was enjoyable as always. I think they've changed up the music they've been using (can't be sure, never sat right under the speaker before) but it didn't quite vibe with the atmosphere. Again, a minor thing. It wasn't our usual 5-star experience but we'll be back because everyone has an off day.

For the cost of melting pot, and my history of visiting, I was just stunned that this was allowed. Mobile internet is not a babysitter, and why can’t you use a pair of headphones if you do allow this behavior is beyond me. The management of the restaurant should be managing this as well.
