I absolutely love this place. The food was delicious. You have to ask for Abby, she is the best and so knowledgeable about the menu and recommends the best food choices. The drinks are good and strong. A great dining experience.

The food and drinks were excellent but the floor was really dirty…lots of bread and crumbs, salad, and just crap under tables and the floor. MP should do better in that area!

The melting pot in Annapolis is our go to spot for family celebrations. It is always festive and delicious. This time was no different. We'll be back in a couple months for the next birthday

Waitress took approximately 25 mins to greet us after we were seated. On final course hair was in our food. Waitress removed it promptly but really didn’t apologize or offer anything for the inconvenience of it. I did not ask for anything but more of an apology would have been appreciated. Don’t expect hair in your food at an upscale restaurant.

*BEWARE* We visited mid-week as first-time customers to this location but repeat customers of Melting Pot for over 20 years. This restaurant was filthy dirty!! Our table was not set, and a dirty napkin sat on the bench chair. Numerous food items were littered all over the floor, and I nearly stepped on a few of them if I had not paid attention while walking to the restroom. The bathroom was disgusting and unhygienic. I didn't want to touch anything. Literal puddles of water were all over the floor, not from a recent mopping, but pools from a leak or large spill of stalls or sinks. Stalls look like they had not been wiped down in years. On the way back, I noticed several tables set up with cutlery (ready to be seated) but had shreds of cheese scattered on the tabletops themselves, which made me question if they were wiped down appropriately. One table across from us was seated, and the customers noticed the table was still dirty and unclean, so they asked to be placed at another table. Servers were new with only a few months of experience, forgetting items such as cutlery, drink orders, extra toppings, etc. to the point they would bring it after you were done and needed it. Plates were chipped, children were screaming across the dining room, and other customers were allowed to have loud phone conversations on speaker phone. It was a very special occasion/date to us, and it was unfortunately not as romantic as we hoped. This location is highly dated, desperately needing a remodel. Some of the tables had wires dangling underneath the tabletop from the cooking unit. I would rather drive to a different and further Melting Pot in DMV than return to this one again.

This was not the best experience for us. While we ordered two sets of the Bigger Night Out for the 4 of us, I didn’t feel like we actually got twice as much food than when it’s just the two of us. Our server was not experienced, messy with the cheese fondue making, nearly let our broth boil out before bringing our entree pieces and she disappeared for long periods of time while our glasses were empty. While I knew I’d get the big bill, looking back, it wasn’t worth all the money we paid. It just didn’t feel special this time.

We hadn't been back to the Melting Pot in years. It was our New Year's Eve tradition for a number of celebrations. With covid spreading rapidly and gatherings being cancelled, it seemed the natural place for us to return. We were not disappointed. Just as much fun and intimate as we remembered.

We go to the Melting Pot for an experience. In many ways, it takes us back to another decade when fondue was more popular. It's actually a treat to join in making your own dinner. The food is simple and tasty -- from cheese course to chocolate course.

We were really happy there was such a small group at midnight and we could gather in the bar and welcome in the New Year with a champagne toast, just like old times.

What made the entire evening so special was our waitperson, Linda. She was exceptional! Kind, attentive, funny, and extremely helpful with our menu planning and making the whole evening work for us. There are a handful of wait staff I know by first name in Annapolis (and return to venues because of). Adding Linda to my list!

Unfortunately we didn’t get to eat. They were only offering a limited menu that wasn’t what we wanted. We had not been notified even though the y said they’d called all reservations to let them know about the limited menu. We’ll go back when we can choose what we want.

Overall we had a good time and the food was decent but the restaurant was not very clean. A wine glass had to be sent back because us was filthy, silverware arrived dirty, the floors had food all over them, and the bathroom was not real clean either. The server had trouble mixing the cheese course and was splashing it all over the cook top. Also when booking on Open Table we didn’t have the option to select two cooktops. With two couples celebrating a birthday it would have been nice to order separate course options. Not sure we’d go back. When you spend that much money, you expect a more high end, clean, professional experience.

Absolutely delicious food. We had the big dinner four course meal. The cheese fondue was great with just a hint of white wine. The salads were fresh and just the right size after the cheese course. Our entree consisted of various types of beef tenderloin, pork chicken and shrimp. Coupled with the many choices of dipping sauces, this course was superb. We ended the night with a dark chocolate fondue with fruit, cakes, brownies, rice crispy treats, marshmallows and waffles for dipping. All in all a great meal and our server, Mario, was attentive and friendly. Would definitely return. Highly recommended.

If you’ve never been to a Melting Pot, I highly recommend it. The experience is very unique and good. The tables are nice and comfortable and you don’t feel that you’re being rushed, and of course the food is great. We had a great time and especially enjoyed the cheese course and the chocolate course. That said, it’s fairly pricey and it takes a long time to get through the four courses (it took us about 2.5 hours), so it’s definitely more of a special occasion kind of restaurant. But if you have time and money for it, especially if you’ve never been, you’ll be in for a good time.

Everything was wonderful. From the moment we walked in, we were greeted surprisingly by name. (We did have reservations.) We were seated at a nice quiet booth. Wonderful waiter who was attentive and laughed at my jokes. Always good. Meal was suburb. Tasty, was great fun to take a friend out who had never been. He hopes to go again. Thank you!

Yeah, I’m not so sure why everything here is so expensive when you’re doing all the cooking and preparing yourself. Dinner and three drinks including tip for almost $200 is a bit high. The portions are super small but I guess that’s part of the experience. Always a good time though
