The waiter provided excellent. Customer service. I learned that this particular restaurant is one that gets to test new ideas that the company wants to try which is kind of neat and allowed us to try some things like soft pretzels at the cheese course which were quite tasty. Normal melting pot fondue experience otherwise--they never disappoint.

We did it again this year! This time included sisters. The 2+ hour event is so worth it. We laughed & told stories. Our server, Trevor took it all in stride. They were very smart to put us in a corner section so that our rowdiness wouldn't bother other diners. The chocolate covered strawberries were an added touch. Probably will... More

My husband and I ate there on A Saturday night to celebrate his birthday! The food was very good and our waiter was very friendly and helpful. We arrived before our reservation time so we went to the bar to have a drink. There was some tension that seemed to be going on between the bartender and wait staff. The... More

My husband and I have been to The Melting Pot in Houston, TX several times. We were in San Antonio for our 15th Anniversary. We decided to celebrate here. It was another great experience and meal. Great food, drinks and atmosphere! Highly recommend this restaurant. It is a little pricey.

We had Matt as our server, and he was just fabulous. We came for cheese and chocolate and being satisfied is an understatement. Everything they give you to pair with the cheese and chocolate is truly outstanding. I'll definitely be back again and again especially because I'm a local, and working in the restaurant industry, locals are definitely the people... More

This place was pretty much empty and I'd say it's because it's overpriced and just ok. If you don't want to have to cook your own food, don't come here. The other thing I don't like is you can't eat your cheese and meats together because they each require the pot for cooking. My kids were still starving when we... More

We had been to The Melting Pot in Minneapolis and knew this would be good. We had a great server, Ross, who was very helpful, competent and friendly. We went for the 4 courses - a must and enjoyed every single mouthful. Excellent tasty different food.

Seriously, avoid this place. Looks great, very impressive. Amazing inside and a great date place, but don't eat! Drink and Drink, but do not eat. Reminds me of the Oasis in Austin, go there to drink, but don't eat.

Description
At The Melting Pot, fondue is more than a signature dish. It's a culinary tradition that we honor every day - and have spent 40 years perfecting. And thanks to our dedication to our craft, that tradition is still going strong and attracting new fans today. Fondue is more than just a meal. It's an experience. And that's what The Melting Pot does best. Whether you're celebrating a birthday, anniversary, a long overdue date night, or celebrating with a group, The Melting Pot Restaurant is perfect for any occasion. Customize your visit with a four-course dining experience including cheese fondue, salad, entree and dessert. Or, come by for fondue cheese paired with that perfect glass of wine from our extensive selection. That's not to say, we haven't had more than a few stop by to satisfy that chocolate craving after a movie.
