    I thought overall the food was pretty good, but you don't get enough for your money. I also didn't like being charged extra for the broth we choose for our meal. The drink was also very pricy for a non alcoholic drink. The three course experience should include the chocolate fondue for the cost.
    The server, Lyndsay, was horrible. She greeted us like she wanted to be somewhere other than there. She lacked enthusiasm. My son ordered water and was brought lemonade. I requested one of my entree items to be the teriyaki sirloin she ordered the sirloin with pepper on the outside. Even though we come there often, we inquired about cook times, she said 1 minute, 30 seconds for everything. I know that's not accurate. We cooked our chicken and steak items at 2 minutes regardless of her suggestion. She also said our shrimp and lobster can be cooked less that 1 min./30 ***** because you can really eat that raw. Seriously?!! Obviously, we didn't listen to her recommend timing on that either. Then she brought the dessert out, put everything in pot and told US to stir it for about 4 minutes. When we requested 6 blondies to finish off our chocolate, she ordered us 6 pound cakes. We told the person who dropped them off that we ordered blondies. He brought us 4. Even though we asked for 6. We waited at least 10 minutes after everything cleared for our check. The entire meal, she never looked happy to be there serving people. It was horrible service.
    Lovely experience taking out my father inlaw and fiancé out to enjoy the melting pot dinner our waiter nick did an amazing job and definitely will be back for multiple occasions
    It was our first visit. Amy at the bar was very nice to explain everything to us during the happy hour. Hannah was the best to let us know all that was being served on our 4 course dinner. Overall it was the best experience food dining.
    Tony is an excellent server. We come here often and he is by far the best. He finished my sentences. Awesome experience. We will be asking for him every time. The last two times were not as great so this made up for it.
    the cheese fondue portion was a little small. The melted cheese was delicious and I would've liked more of it. I would have preferred more bread as well other than fruits.
    The staff was amazing. It was just a little expensive for the type and amount of food
    Clarissa was great and attentive
    Tony truly made our evening one of the most memorable and fun experiences we have had out in a long time. We will certainly be requesting him as our server in the future as well as recommending the The Melting Pot to all our friends especially for celebrating special occasions. I cannot sing enough of his praises and we received the highest level of service we have ever had!!
    Everything is good, its just i love a little more sauce than just a broth for my entree or maybe have a cheese that you can melt and put in a pasta. But everything is really good, love the cheese and chocolate fondue. Will come back again to try all the flavors you have.
