It's a cute idea but way too expensive for what you get. I would say go there for dessert if you want to try it. I will not be going back.

We are all teachers from Queens, NY. I go there frequently and I know most of the staff because of it. My friends with me were new and we went to celebrate the 12th anniversary with the $35 promotion. We had such an amazing experience. Mikayla was absolutely fantastic to us and made us feel so special.

First time here and I have to say it was very memorable. We had a lot of fun with our food and everything was so tasty. Now I see what the fuss was all about. Would highly recommend for first dates or friends night out, any occasion really.

We went for restaurant week and because we got in after 7pm on a Saturday our waiter told us we could not participate with it. I would have been fine with that if a different waiter two tables down was offering it to his table that got sat after us. Just a little disappointed especially since it was for my birthday. Either than that the food was amazing.

I have been to the Melting Pot on many occasions and even on restaurant weeks. The cheese and chocolate portions were small. Our waitress had zero personality and when we mentioned that the cheese was cold she told us that the burner had to be on a “6”. We asked again and she didn’t help. We had no choice but to turn up the burners ourselves. She “told” on us as we were spoken to by someone else. The rest of the meal was a disaster as the meal took too long to cook and the chocolate was lukewarm. In addition, we ordered the flaming turtle minus the pecans and it was never flaming. She just mixed chocolate and caramel together. That’s not the way it should be made. It was a very disappointing experience.

Way overpriced for the food portions. Should keep fondue to only appetizer and dessert and make dinners more individual... will not be dining there again.

I am sorry you were not happy with pricing/portions. The 4 Course experience is not for everyone. If you did enjoy the cheese and dessert you can always come back in just for those courses. We have a lot of guests that do just those items. We hope to have you back for just that experience if you would like.

The Melting Pot was a great experience. It's definitely a place to celebrate a special occasion: birthday, anniversary, etc.

I loved grilling the meats, which was perhaps the best part of the evening. It's almost hibachi style.

If you're an avid fondue lover, make the trip!

I was there during Long Island Restaurant week and it did not disappoint.

Had a fun evening at Melting Pot. Started with drinks at the bar. Had a little trouble closing out our check there so we could make our reservation on time. The bartender was helping with a table near the bar so it took awhile to finally get his attention. The hostess came over a few times to see if we were ready, but we had to wait for the bartender. After finally getting seated we enjoyed the meal, especially the Alpine cheese fondue. Service was not as good as usual. I think we may have had a new server. Still enjoyed our dinner and will be back.

Thank you for your review. I apologize that the service was not to your normal standards. We have had a good amount of new hires so it could have been a possibility of having a new server. Please next time you book a reservation ask for me, Eric I am the new General Manager here and will make sure we accommodate you with the service you and all our guests expect and deserve. Look forward to having you back in!

The cheese fondue was the best thing we had. And that’s not saying much. Everything else not good. Overpriced for the portions. This is like a slightly more upscale version of Applebee’s with melted cheese. Meh.

The Melting Pot is definitely in my top three restaurants; however, this last visit did not meet all of my usually exceeded expectations. We reserved a table with a double burner, yet we settled for a table with one burner and a portable. The corner where we were seated was tight and dark. In order to comfortably eat, we had to utilize the chair opposite the booth, which meant I had to continuously move whenever the server came to adjust the temperature or prepare the fondue. Our server was very nice by the way. Also, for the status and price of the restaurant, the menus no longer come in jackets. They were simply diner equivalent paper menus. This is more a personal standard, but the little things mean a lot. Needless to say, I'm sure I will return.
