    The server came in a timely manner, never had to wait for her, filled glasses at appropriate times. Was very pleasant and helpful explaining the menu. Always asked how we liked the meal and very attentive. Left enough space in veteeen table visits for my husband and I to have priva

    4 people had to share one burner but pay per person for cheese/dessert. There should be only 2 people per burner. Entrees should be larger portions.

    Hi, my husband and I LOVE the melting pot and the experience. We celebrate everything there and also just go randomly just because. However the last two times have been pretty ridiculous. I'm not sure if there has been new management? The last two times we went no manager came tonthe table like they usually do. We order the same things everytime we go and when we ask to exchange a meat for more shrimp or something else there is never an issue but all of a sudden we are being told he have to be charged more if we choose certain things like shrimp? So weird because if the steak was good meat you would think steak would be more then some raw shrimp....anyways we had a server who was flat out annoying and then last night another server who forget to bring stuff we asked for and took forever to bring any extra dippers to where we left some of the cheese Togo to waste because of it and well we all know the cheese is the best part! She was not that good at explaining anything she came off like she was new or just didn't know how to handle a larger table, there were 7 of us. I'm not one to complain but I love this place to much to not complain about the last couple times we have been there. We pay to much for poor service! And also my cousin and her family went the day after us and had the annoying server we had and they said the same thing about her! Not good. I wish I could remember the names so imnsorry we don't have that for you all. Bottom line is I'm definitely bummed because we come often and pay a lot of money to eat there and recommend it to everyone but I'm afraid to recommend it if I know the chance of a poor experience is possible. I also wanted to mention that we made reservations for valentines before the actual day to avoid the special menu you do for those occasions to only be told we didn't have a choice it was only the menu you chose so we ended up canceling and going elsewhere because we think it's crazy to pay for food youndont even want or care for. Sonyeah basically it's been so disappointing lately.

    For the create your own, I only wanted 1 premium item, so I wish the pricing was a little different.

    Our server, Christine, was the best server we've had at this location. She was outstanding! She seemed to really enjoy her job, was very pleasant and friendly, and took the time to explain everything. Although we've dined at The Melting Pot many times in the past, we learned several things we didn't know before. She made some very helpful suggestions and went out of her way to ensure we had a most enjoyable evening. Best of all, the timing of the courses was perfectly paced. (On previous visits, we often felt a bit rushed.) Christine is a real asset to this dining establishment, and we will be sure to request her on future visits.

    Bree was wonderful with her explanations and going above and beyond in our order since I asked for an addition to the menu. We have had Bree before and she is very enjoyable.Everything we order came out perfectly. Definatly will return again.

    Love the Cheese Fondue with bread, always amazing, as well as the Steak. Got a private booth with a curtain which was a new experience. Hayley (sp?) was super bubbly and great, as well as the teamwork between all the staff members, helping each other's tables by taking plates, providing more bread, is a great atmosphere.

    We didn't like the table because it was one with a curtain and the angles was to far away from the pot. 5 o'clock reservation and the door was locked at ten after. When we got in still had to wait for our table. But this was the first time I'm ever had to complain.
