    Few categories received less than perfect marks. The menu layout was slightly confusing - in that the experience wasn't mace clear upon a quick browse - but it was clarified expertly by the server. Our table got 3 of the 4 salads offered and, while very good, they were not on the same levels as the other offerings of the night; so moderate improvements can be made here. The wine list was fantastic and offered great value on some well curated bottles - thought the BTG selection was a little lack luster. Besides these above points (which were not bothers during our dining experience), everything was perfect.
    The only thing that was the bench/chair my son was sitting in. It wasn't nailed down, it kept moving, it kept making noises, and when my son reached down to get his napkin, the chair lifted from behind almost throwing my son forward. His neck was aligned with the table leg and said he came extremely close to getting clotheslined at the neck. It scared him a lot but was able to get his hand up in time to keep his neck from being clotheslined.
    Beer wasn't very cold, and should have been served in a chilled glass. The Chocolate Fondue was very thin and runny, and didn't stick to the items very well. The temps of our main course liquid and the other table across the way were WAY TOO HOT!! There wasn't enough of the sauces they provided for our main course, so we had to ask for more. There didn't appear to be enough staff working for a packed Sat night, in fact the GM was actually helping out. Our waitress Jade was spread too thin for her first night by herself, so there was a wait time between courses, as well as waiting for our check.
    Please make sure not to run out of serving plates for entrees. Hard to split two orders when everything is squeezed onto one plate.
    We had reservations at 8pm and the staff said they were very busy due to understaffing the staff seemed in a hurry to get the the food out there and rush us out. Bringing things out while other food was out so they could close up fro the night
    Everything, and everybody at the Melting Pot, made the night excepitional.
    The server was wonderful. Very friendly. Explained everything. Food and drinks were served in a timely manner.
    Server was great but there was an issue with a burning pot. There was smoke everywhere along with a bad smell.
    We had a perfect evening out. I will definitely come back as my schedule allows. This was the perfect overall experience for my visiting cousin and his children. We had such fun! The menu was a little confusing to me, but perhaps simply because this was my first visit and we were tired after a long day in SF. Great food, amazing staff.
    The service was not nearly as good as I remember. We only met the manager because he walked by our table and we hadn't been acknowledged since we were seated. He bacame our waiter until he pawned us off to the bartender. Phil was lovely.
