Excellent service! Was dining in the first room with a full seating setting. The lighting is a bit hard to work taking pictures but the ambience of the table and furniture is pleasant.
I tried the whiskey business cocktail they had and I loved it! Would definitely come back the next time I’m looking for a lax night out

The experience was great; food, service, etc. - it just seems like more of a rushed experience. Not as intimate as it once was.

Always amazing and romantic place to go eat. We got sat in a different area of the restaurant than we normally get seated so the noise was a good bit higher. Not a big deal though as there were other folks celebrating too. Our waiter was the owners son and he was waiting on a few other tables as well. Service was good, but my wife and I were out of our drinks before the entree and we had to get our waiters attention to get our drinks refreshed and waters refilled. We have been coming here to celebrate our wedding anniversary since 2017. I know the current economy and struggles places are having to recruit and keep people, so I will just say they did the best with the folks they have. Experience was just a little different this time.

We have been to this location multiple times - never disappointed! Last night was extremely noisy though. We had a hard time hearing others at our own table.
Food was fantastic! Service was terrific!! Thank you!

Food was great as always. Service was slow compared to normal and was very loud due to family nearby with crying child and noisy other child. Not usually the case at Melting Pot.

First off - have been before and this was the worst experience and will not be going back. Went for a birthday outing with our toddler and infant - asked right away for a cup of hot water to warm the bottle in, which took them 35mins to bring us (has only ever taken 5mins tops in many other restaurants). The waiter was never at our table and when he was - he would forget what we asked and would have to ask again. Ordered drinks and cheese (for 3 people) - brought out minimal dippers for 2 people and for reference (the table that sat next to us had ordered cheese for 3 people and they had a mountain of bread dippers and we were given 10 pieces). My drink came out, brought by another waiter, finished my drink and then the empty glass was taken by another waiter, before our waiter came to the table asking if I received my drink. Then asked for a few more dippers and waited so long we just asked to have the chocolate. Then waited for them to flambé the chocolate (husband stepped away for a minute) and we waited so long for the waiter to come back - the utensils to flambé it were taken away by another waiter. Asked for the sweet additions that come with macrons (listed on the menu provided at the restaurant- was why we ordered it) - didn’t even bring it out and was charging us for it, then brought them out WITHOUT the macrons. When asked about it- was told they don’t have those at the restaurant! Then why is it on the menu?! Then we had just had enough and asked for it to-go, was given small cups for everything and lids that didn’t fit and had to ask 4 times for lids that fit. The owner came over and asked why we had a bad experience and when my husband stated (calmly, did not raise his voice) that the pending frustration was we have asked for lids 4 times and still have not received them and … then before he could say anything further the owner WALKED AWAY and didn’t come back!! I also had a birthday coupon to redeem and they didn’t want to honor at first. Just bad!

My husband and I decided to try The Melting Pot in our area and we are glad we did! Our server Chase, was wonderful and helped us out in our for our first visit. We decided to do the Apline fondue dip, Ceasar salads, Land and Sea and Pacific rim for our entrees and had the cookie buttercrunch for our dessert fondue choice. Everything was wonderful in the food choices and the overall experience was just great. Looking forward to another visit here and when we have visitors we will take them here.

Very confusing menu and pricing. In the end great for one time to experience, but a $450 bill for 6 people and not enough food served tells me this chain will not last, have no plans to ever return not worth the money nice idea poor execution don’t expect the chain to survive if they don’t make changes.

It was a touch too dark in our little nook. It made it a bit difficult for either of us to read. I noise from the people in the adjoining nook was a bit much making it difficult to hear each other. The food was excellent.

We frequent Hilltop's location but this was not our "usual" amazing experience. Our server was very nice & attentive but it took almost 30 minutes for her to be sent over. Our reservation was for 6 & it was almost 6:30 before we were acknowledged. I don't blame the server...I blame the hostess & or the manager. It was also the 1ST time our fondue' was "watery & over seasoned." Not sure if this was lack of training for our server, an error in the kitchens measuring or change of recipe but it wasn't tasty.

Food was absolutely divine and our server was so polite and helpful! I will say however the markup on the wine was a bit steep. A bottle of wine you can pick up from Total Wine for $9 was sold here for $24+. However in the moment it was delicious with the meal.

Our service was absolutely terrible. I normally don't complain but we had to even ask for drinks a few times because we were out. I don't know about you but if I was a server I would want to get my check up. We had a birthday that was on the reservation and nothing. Someone even said something and he didn't seem to care. I have been there numerous times but I think it will be my last.

The Melting Pot is one of my favorite restaurants. Great food, good drinks, and nice service. My only feedback is that they do not give enough cheese for the fondue and not enough for the dessert.
