In my opinion, but I really upset to hear from the special dinner and spend money. I feel like it is never forget this bad event. I was shocked my family went to this place and spend $300 without me. Crazy! We are mid income family, but this price is over price and not fit what they offered. If this... More

I wanted to like this restaurant, and the staff was pleasant, but the concept of patrons dipping and dripping at the table isn't something that make me want to return. Add a hefty price to the arrangement and you have a potentially messy and expensive dining experience. I'd rather ease back and enjoy a dining experience that doesn't involve me... More

We made our reservation 18 days before our anniversary dinner. I asked for the private 2 person curtained table. This was during the Valentines Day period. I was told the cost was $79 a person with a Valentines Day menu. When we arrived, we were seated at a non-private table. When I asked about the private curtained table I requested,... More

We find that The Melting Pot restaurants are more fun when you have at least six people in your group. Less than 6 people means you don't get as many choices. We found the staff to be friendly, with our server joking with us throughout dinner. It's easy make a reservation using the OpenTable app. It is pricey though so... More

I love The Melting Pot restaurants. This was the first time we've been to the Tucson location, which was very pleasant and our table felt intimate and quiet. We were celebrating a birthday....and everything was perfect! Delicious cheese fondue and salads, followed by the interesting vegetarian entree option. Then the dessert fondue...Brûlée white chocolate.....amazing! The birthday plate and card were... More

Everything about this place is mediocre and does not live up to the prices listed on the menu. Management does not give off a welcoming atmosphere, I felt very uncomfortable and felt that my presence being there was more of a hassle than anything else. There should definitely be a change in management, It is very poorly managed. My server... More

Wrong cheeses, lousy bread, no kirsch, interminable waits. Definitely not the real thing. Definitely a rip-off.

Our kids chose this restaurant as a birthday dinner celebration surprise for my wife. We all had a fantastic time - food was great, service (Sophia) was fun, capable and 110% attentive on ensuring that our birthday celebration was a big hit. In fact, it felt like the entire staff was working together seamlessly. We had a great time and... More

Being patrons for more than twenty years, the Melting Pot never fails to deliver, whether for a birthday or anniversary celebration, or just a romantic dinner. The staff at the Tucson location provided personalized service for our celebration in a private, curtained dining nook and Cassidy provided the perfect level of attention to our needs. Thank you very much for... More
