    Less children in such an intimate environment. Table was somewhat awake as with its design. The salad came out missing multiple ingredients
    Okay, I'm going to take up this whole section gushing about our server, Tony. This guy is finominal. It was my fiancée and mine's ninth anniversary and Tony was the reason it was out best one yet. He explained everything with possibly the friendliest personality I have ever seen in a waiter and I genuinely went from having no idea how the melting pot worked to complete understanding. Honestly, the melting pot is a little too expensive for me, but if I could sit at Tony's table I would happily come back. Seriously, this guy is the best. I'm a supervisor at a restaurant and I have never and doubt will ever have an employee as good at their job as this man. Do everything you can to hold onto him and keep him happy - he's working hard for you.
    The dining area was nice, with good privacy for couple. The waiter and waitress explained the pot pretty well. The food was good but the pace between courses was too slow. We needed to wait for 5-10 mins for the next course and felt bored. After we finish the meal, we also waited for a long time for the waitress to get our check. We had late dinner (started at 8pm), seems the staffs were prepared for closing the door, not caring about us.
    We have had Jonah multiple times and he has always gone above and beyond as a server. We will request him the next time we come back for sure. He is awesome.
    Derek was pleasant, funny and entertaining. He is an excellent seever. He answered all of our questions and gave us suggestions.
    I have very severe life threatening food allergies, & our waiter Chance went above & beyond to heat up my safe food I brought with me & accommodate our whole table. He was so kind & worked so hard!
    Our entree did take a while to come out but otherwise or experience was perfect!
    We had an amazing meal and were able to enjoy the great experience with family members from out of town. The only thing better than the food was the amazing service that Tony provided. He not only ensured we received everything we could want from the menu he went above and beyond to ensure our experience was nothing short of perfect. We have been fortunate enough to be seated in his section before and I must say each time we are he finds a way to make our experience even better. The next time we visit we will ensure to request Tony because if he is part of our experience I know for certain our evening will be amazing.
    We thought we should have gotten more cheese for the price. Cheese ran out, and we still had basically the full order of bread and a couple of veggies that we just had to eat plain.
