Had a great family night out at Melting Pot - always great service; like the updated menu - chocolate fondue for dessert was amazing. Our server Joe was terrific - very animated and outgoing, great service.

The hot pot entree was okay. However, the dessert and bacon cheese dip was delicious. I would only come back for the appetizer and dessert.

No, not necessary but it will ensure you get seated promptly. The walk-ins were being told 45-60 minute wait.

The Melting Pot Restaurant is where fun is cooked up fondue style. Whether you're celebrating a birthday, anniversary, long overdue date night or celebrating with a group. We are the premier fondue restaurant, centrally located on Westheimer, providing a casually elegant dining experience and an intimate atmosphere. The relaxing four-course experience begins with a cheese fondue prepared table side and fresh salads while your entrée pot heats up. You'll simmer a variety of meats, seafood and vegetables in the cooking style of your choice. Each morsel is hot, fresh and delicious and all entrées are accompanied by an array of dipping sauces. Chocolate fondue is the finale, served with decadent dippers. Most make reservations for the four-course dining experience but more than a few have stopped by to satisfy that cheese fondue or chocolate craving. The Melting Pot also features a great wine list, specialty cocktails and martinis.
