Let me start by saying I don't give 5 stars unless it is one of those experiences where it is the perfect time. Great price, great food, great service and the fact that we just leave saying "wow". This is my third time dining here. Each time has been basically the same, so I will commend them for the consistency.... More

My family went to the Melting Pot for my grandmother's 92nd birthday. Once we got through the ordering process -- which is a bit overwhelming with 5 people, a lot of options, a VERY dark restaurant, and a lot of constraints -- we were on our way. The cheese course was great - plenty of dippers (bread, veggies, fruit), and... More

First of all, the food was amazing. My wife and I loved it a lot and our waitress Robin was absolutely amazing. She made the experience even more memorable and I look forward to going back there again.

Like a Chuck E Cheese for adults, the concept may be intriguing but disappointing and highly overpriced for mediocre food. The best I can say is "been there, done that".

My kids have been big fans of the Melting Pot forever and always want to go there to celebrate birthdays. We've always shelled out the money because it was an awesome experience and a decent value for the price. On this most recent visit, I was disappointed that the portions have gone way down and it's just not worth it.... More

Had a wonderful experience at the Melting Pot in Gaithersburg. Don't let the location turn you off. It took us 8 years to try it but we'll be back! Allow time to enjoy your evening, I'd say 2 hours is just about right if you plan to do the 4 course dinner which I highly recommend. The kids really enjoyed... More
