I requested 1st floor seating and that was honored. We were seated quickly. The server came to take our order promptly. The cheese course was delicious. We had our salads boxed to go. The entrees were fresh and delicious cooked in the mojo cooking style. We chose bananas foster for dessert. As always it was scrumptious.
Second time in and tried the grilling at the table, it was so much better then boiling (in my families opinion, the boiling seems to take the seasoning out of the meats and just adds an icky watery flavor). The best is the dessert of course!!! The cheese and breads is yummy but I find the consistency a tad off, but we will for sure be back!!! Maybe we will just go in for a dessert date!!! Love us some chocolate fondue!!! Our server was amazing!! And we paid extra for balloons and chocolate covered strawberries at our table for my sons birthday, he really enjoyed that! Prices are high but it is the experience you are really paying for it’s a lot of fun to sit around the pot and cook and talk, I would say this is probably the only restaurant you go to and don’t look at your phone because your bored or are waiting for food!! Great place! ❤️
Joseph was great. Only suggestion would be, when the manger is walking around, he may want to introduce himself before he just steps up to the table and starts talking. We had no idea who he was and thought maybe it was another Patreon of the restaurant.
WAY too expensive!!! Bread seemed stale, meat was ok, desserts were fabulous!!!
We were somewhat disappointed in our server. I believe his name was Joseph. At first he was very attentive to our needs but as the evening progressed he was less and less attentive. He stopped by his other tables much more frequently than ours. He forgot to bring us items that we requested and those things ended up being brought to us by one of the bussers, Alex. She was absolutely fantastic. She went above and beyond her job role to assist us and it was very appreciated. She followed through on everything we asked for and completed tasks that should have been done by Joseph. Because of this we felt it only fair to give her a portion of the tip that would have gone to him had he spent as much time with us as he did with his other tables. If you are in need of servers, I highly recommend Alex!
We easily used a Groupon and found it to be a great deal. We had more than we could eat and found everything to be really good. Especially so this time. The service though was so very slow and we were one of the few people there. I know perhaps other areas might have been busy and we didn’t see but either way it was so slow and inattentive. The broth sat so long for our meal they had to replaced it before adding the cooking liquids. When our service person did come over it was so rushed I wasn’t even able to ask for things or ask to omit others. We never got to ask for items or order beverages ...We realize there is a relaxing slow pace eating there but this was just very disappointing.
Very much enjoyed our visit. Our server and staff were very friendly, knowledgeable and fun and the food was terrific. We love the Melting Pot!!!
Service took too long and it was very open, not private enough for my 12 year anniversary. Didn’t like that the host said they were busy when I was checking in and as we walk back there literally is only 4 tables being used! Excuse me but you weren’t busy and service took a very long time! We missed our movie from so much waiting. Would be hard to ever go back unless there was some sort of deal.
Once again a special dinner has been overshadowed by disappointment. We love the Melting Pot for special occasions, and we were celebrating our 44th anniversary. Upon arrival, we discovered that the City of Tacoma had shut down the use of oil for cooking our main course. Although the cheese and chocolate were amazing as always, we definately only got half of our expectations met. I wish I could remember the name of our server because she was great. Even though she had to deliver bad news she was cheerful and attentive and made us happy to stay and enjoy our night, even after an inauspicious beginning. Hope they get the oil back soon, this is the second time in a row I've missed out on my mushrooms with green goddess dipped in sesame batter and deep fried . I am feeling deprived lol
Great quality food. We did the four course meal. Fondue was pretty good. Salad was fresh, tasty. Third course was the meat. We t cow su vine. Very good cuts of meat, seasoned well. And the chocolate dessert was the ombre. Soooooo good. Only minor "complaint" is that it takes two and a half hours to do. I went two days in a row. Once for the ELO concert prefunc and the next day with the GF and parents. 4 people cost 316. Ucks, plus tip. Ut .just try one time for sure.
The service was very slow. They didn't fill our water cups once. And only came by to drop our food off, we got cheese fondue, and then the check. Sadly we will not be going here again
Love this restaurant, I wish the website would specify that happy hour prices are for the bar only.
Our waitress was great and all of her suggestions were perfect in making our date night dinner memorable.
The atmosphere was great! Food great! Service good... However, communication between staff is lacking. Kids were to eat for free, however, our two children were charged. It was brought up that the information was never forwarded to the servers. Then, when the bill was brought back I saw the next day that I was charged twice!!! Once with the kids meal and once with out the kids meal for a bill of over $400 dollars! Ridiculous...
With our two oldest grandchildren, a boy & a girl.
Great experience but the service was slow...
Really bad and slow service punctuated with a lie at the end that the credit card machine was down (she had told us earlier that they don’t receive their tips in cash each night) so she was obviously trying for some cash. I used a Groupon as the meals are overpriced for kids and the Groupon is supposed to be a value but they way they ring it up actually causes the meal to be more than it would be if you just paid for the 4 course.
Won’t be back! This place used to be special.
Service wasn’t great. While always an expensive experience felt like prices had gotten out hand too.
The bathrooms were pretty dirty and some of the stuff on the menu was unavailable
LOOONG wait in between each course. Otherwise it was great.
The food was good but our waiter wasn't. It was still an enjoyable night because of the friends I was with.
Worst service we've ever received. Have already wrote a review on fb and contacted the manager. After the managers response, will NOT return
Eric was such an amazing server! He was so informative and friendly! The food was AMAZING and we loved the rose petal and candle package, where we sat was private and quiet. Truly a Romantic night!
Our server Sam was awesome. Very cordial and helpful when it came to menu questions. He was inviting and professional.
Fantastic food, extremely helpful and inviting waiters, overall incredible experience!
Our server was fantastic and did a great job but as far as the value of the food I think it was poor. The food itself was good but way overpriced.
We had a lunch reservation and were seated in a section with very few people around us which was awesome. We had a new server who was great as well as her trainer.
The food was amazing and a wonderful celebration or an early Father's Day and birthday lunch.
Took a little longer to get through dinner than I had anticipated. But it was excellent other than that.
This was my first time there and everyone was super helpful and nice and the food was delicious. And overall experience was really fun!
Lovely place for a date or special occasion. Waitstaff is informative and the overall experience is quite fun!
Good customer service and good food.
Always a good time when we go. This time was no different.
Specials aren’t really specials and the additional fees for small amounts of food, the value is just not at all justified for the receipt price. It was slow and our service was a sweetie, but the food was super slow getting out and this being an empty night. Was just odd.
Great service and great food!
There was so much dust/vent dirt on the ceiling and it kept falling down on us. Tried to not let it fall into the food.
Great first time experience. Not fast food so have time to enjoy. Great for visiting together while you enjoy each course. We will definitely be back.
It was an amazing meal with even better service.
We cme up to celebrate a birthday each year, the table is always sat as requested and the food and service are top notch. However, I am giving the overall rating of FAIR because of the following reason, the different style table warmers.
Previously, the gas style would heat quick and give high temps for cooking the food. The new style heating pads were not up to the task. They did get hot enough to melt the chesse, but never hot enough to require removing the food from the cooking fork to consume. Cooking times for the meats seemed to take a bit longer than before as well, and as stated, were not hot enough to bother removing from the cooking forks.
While the chocolate was warm enough to get melted, it was in no way hot.
Great Pay the Date evening with my daughter as an end to a "slightly" (!) hectic and chaotic two days of disconcerting travel and more.
It was a wonderful first time experience with my true love.
Excellent service and fantastic service
