Service was great, the food was mediocre at best. The cheese in the fondue was ok but the bread and veggies they give you are very low quality. The vegetables were like kitchen scraps and the bread tasted like it was purchased at Safeway. The main course was good and an entertaining way to spend the evening. Desert was also ok if not overly sweet. This feels like a place that used to be very special but has been diluted by over expansion and corporate greed.

Despite reservations, we were made to wait while the hostess stand figured out where to put us. It took at least 10 minutes to get our drink order started. The first course was prompt, the second dragged and at that point, I hadn’t seen the waiter in over 40 minutes. We were in the restaurant over 2 hours, which is ridiculous. The food quality was good though.

Excellent Melting Pot experience for a party of 5 in celebration of our client's home sale! We enjoyed three courses on the Restaurant Week Menu along with two bottles of Tribute, a California Cabernet, to complete the wine pairing. Our first course was two cheese options of which we selected Wisconsin Cheddar, and Bacon Brie. The Bacon Brie was the favorite of the table. Second course, salad of choice, which everyone enjoyed their own selection. The third course of meat, seafood, and vegetables was enhanced by the Fondue Cooking Styles of Court Bouillon - seasoned vegetable broth, and Coq Au Vin - Burgundy wine, mushrooms, scallions, garlic.
One of my personal favorites was the wild mushroom sacchetti. The three courses completed the evening as we did not have room for dessert. Our server, Cameron, was very attentive to our tables needs!! The Melting Pot is always a fun, interactive evening of great food, wine, conversation, and laughter.

First time trying this place. Make sure you got time for a long meal, didn't realize the process took us 3 hours. Note not saying service was slow or anything, the experience was just this long. Service was great! Our server was attentive, made good recommendations. All the flavors for the 4 cheeses was great, chocolate caramel fondue had a good taste, the entree - meats was also good, recommend the Caribbean/mojo flavoring. Definitely a steal for restaurant week being only $22 lunch for 3 course, $5 for chocolate. But what really wow'ed me was the wine flight. It was $18 and I got 4 glasses from white, rose, to 2 reds for each course (cheese, salad, entree/meat, and dessert).

Our waitress, was awesome! She listened to our crazy animal stories and took her time explaining the menu. We told her about how it was one guests birthday, another’s anniversary and she went out her way to make us feel special. Really appreciated the kindness from her.

It was clean, safely spaced and everyone wore masks when not at their table.

I was there for my anniversary and the ballon they gave us barely had air in it. The service was horrible. It took them over 20 minutes to have someone to greet us. The food wasn’t that great either. Just a horrible experience for my first time there.

This was our first restaurant experience since COVID-19 and they knocked it out of the park. The restaurant was very clean and tidy. They sat every other table. The fondue experience was as fabulous as ever. Our waiter, Oscar, did a fantastic job taking care of us.

The environment was very different than it was in the past, before covid. It was very quiet. Our server, Oscar, was very helpful, polite, and kept our drinks full. He was able to answer the questions we had about the food and he even took the time to chat with us a bit. The food was as delicious as it always is. Overall I would highly recommend the Melting Pot to anyone who asks. It is a bit pricey, so it’s certainly not an every day kind of place, but for special occasions it is well worth it.

My sons birthday. Our waiter was great with accommodating my gluten sensitivity allergies and other than them forgetting to get us the right type of steak which they fixed immediately it was fantastic. Management and staff was on point.
