We took our 13 yo son to the Melting Pot to celebrate. We all had a blast. The 4 course meal was superb. We started with a bourbon bacon cheese fondue which was great. Our son liked dipping the bread, apple slices, and vegetables into the cheese. I liked my house salad wirh the house honey mustard dressing. We did a sampler of meats for our entree. My son liked the shrimp and pot stickers. I liked the steak and my liked the chicken. We ended our meal with the cookies and cream dark chocolate fondue. The dessert was really good. Our server Michelle provided outstanding service. The Melting Pot is a great place if you want to celebrate something. It is also romantic - dim lighting, quiet and they have small booths for a couple to share.

We had reservations and we were running late so let them know and they were totally fine with it. Our waiter was awesome and so friendly and helpful. We did the four course meal and left happily full. The owner stopped by our table to check in and so did the assistant manager great place for dinner!!!

Six of us recently dined at The Melting Pot in The Loop and had an amazing evening. The hostess greeted us with a warm smile and escorted us to our table. The menu was explained and suggestions were made by our server, who was extremely attentive. We enjoyed everything from the cheeses to the chocolates, and made a night of it. The manager stopped by to ask how our meal was and each of us raved about the food and service. Will definitely be going back.

We went to the melting pot for a friend's birthday. We had a reservation since we had a large group for 8pm. I mention this because at this time the restaurant wasn't packed but it took over an hour to get out the first course. All in all we didn't finish until 11:15. I was expecting it to take a bit of time but there were long periods of time in which we just sat wondering where our food was. Our main server was fantastic and was very friendly and personable. Overall, food was good, atmosphere was good, but it took way too long for food that we had to cook ourselves.
