We spent my son 15th birthday here. I was a amazing experience. We did the 4 course meal . I only have one complaint the food portion. We wasn’t give a lot of food 3 shrimp 4 small chicken cutlets 2 piece of Sirloin steak 4 small cube of salmon and that was the surf and turf (5 short asparagus 4 mushrooms to share). I paid over 3 hundred 332.00 to be exact for 4 and we were still hungry after we left . Nice experience but it wasn’t worth it.

Michael, our server, was great. During this pandemic when everyone is skeptical of going anywhere, the Melting Pot seemed to be doing all the right things. No common items on the table (salt,pepper, advertisements). Disposable menus. Servers with gloves and masks. We felt very comfortable dining here. This was a special occasion for us and they provided us with free glasses of champagne, which was a very nice and unexpected touch. Food was good and the pace of service was great.

I was at first skeptical, especially since the whole pandemic thing, and I prefer to err on the side of caution, but since we missed it, my gf and I decided to try it, and it was amazing! It was very clean, and the service was so nice! The food was amazing as usual! I plan to come back for my birthday to see how things are when they start picking up again, but I've never had a bad experience here!

The food was amazing and the server was excellent. They were even willing and able to prepare the alpine swiss the way it used to be before they changed the recipe. It has always been my favorite place and will always be!

This is a great place to celebrate a special occasion or just to have a fun evening. The classic alpine cheese and both teriyaki and prime fillet steak fondues were scrumptious, as were the salads and chocolate fondue. Our server was perfect: attentive, friendly, and knowledgeable. Can't wait to go back.

We try and go 4-6 times a year. We have our MP buddies. Lol. It’s always great, good food and service. The only issue we had this time is I called to ask for a 2 burner table. They said no problem. The night there they brought us to a booth. When I asked the hostess she said yes this is our two burner table. It was clearly not. We asked to move. They said nothing was available. I told the hostess I guess we have to be even more clear on what a table means.
After about a 5 min wait the manager came over, apologized and said they did have a 2 burner high tip we could take. We gladly did and enjoyed our night as we knew we would!!!
Everyplace has a few ups and downs. After 20+ visits we had a down. No big deal, we will be back!!!

food is good but the prices have gone up a bit. family of four for dinner was about $300 with tip, only had one cocktail each. had a 6:45 reservation called to change to 7pm and they couldn't do it. when we got there there were plenty of empty tables for over 2 hours we were there, not so accommodating.

Responded on 16 February 2020

I apologize for that we try to do our best with accomodating our guests. This past week was a little difficult with us and opentable we were having issues making reservations or swapping them around. We also had some issues with being overbooked and then last minute cancellations which opens up tables in our restaurants. We apologize for that inconvenience. We would like to thank you for coming in with your family and hope to have you back
