If you're looking for a place for a special occasion, this is it! The melting pot is really cool and delicious. They bring out the food to your table and place the fondue pots in front of you and allow you to cook your own food to your liking. The cheese fondue is amazing and the little apple slices they...

Nice change of pace. Whether a special occasion or just a fun night out. Fresh ingredients and friendly service. The Yin-Yang chocolate fondue was great for dessert. Great cheese combinations. Will return again.

Halie was a great server, good was good and we didn't feel rushed. She told us she was only there for a week, but seemed like she had been there years. Will go back soon!

I have dined at many Melting Pot restaurants over the years and this was by far the worst experience of them all. The dining experience is typically very pleasant and relaxed with outstanding service. However, this was not our experience at all. Our server was very rushed and not attentive, although she didn't appear to have more tables than any... More

Spandex highly recommended Lol. There is so many choices so you want to try a little of this and a little of that. Oh and by all means, save room for the chocolate fondue. Lots of choices and you can make your own recipe. I can't wait to go back. Every visit will be a different experience because there is... More

I sat in the wine room for happy hour and then watched three tables all around have food delivered with a smile. Not so nice this time. I ordered brie and waited a half hour and couldn't take it anymore. As I left I informed the hostess what had happened and she just stared at me. Weird. I'll give Melting... More

Happy1969, I am so sorry about the wait. We have experienced a huge amount of popularity during happy hour recently and have had to play catch up on our staffing. We have much more staff in our happy hour lounge area to address this. I would like to invite you to join us again, please contact me at the restaurant... More

I chose the melting pot to celebrate my birthday. I hadn't been to the restaurant in over 15 years. It was nice an I really like the fondone option where they cook the meal for you. The cheese and chocolate never disappoint. A must -do at least once :)

Went for dinner and they seemed to be very busy so I assume they are very popular. Nothing wrong with the food but as you cook it yourself it's difficult to get your food to compare with that cooked by a professional chef and that is probably the problem for me. Atmosphere was very good and our server was very... More

norfolkmanSwaffham, Thank you for giving us a try. The fondue style of cooking does leave the cooking in your hands but we have also rolled out Fondone which gives you the option to let our chefs do the cooking! We hope to see you again. More
