    This was the 2nd time we had Haley as our server, we did not ask for her. She remember us for the last time we were there and it must have been 8+ months ago! She has a wonderful smile and personally. She was very friendly. She noticed that my husband did not like the skin on the apples so she brought us a bowl with peeled apples, all without us asking! The pace of the meal was very nice, not rushed. One of the things we like best about The melting pot is that dinner takes 2+ hours. We enjoy the meal and the company we are with. Haley made our anniversary dinner very nice with her warm & friendly service. We treat Melting Pot as one of our go to places for special occasions.
    Our service was excellent
    Pretty pricey, so we're only come for special occasions!
    Lexie M waited on us and she was a delight. She was the server that I had the last time I was there with my granddaughter. She is very personable and helped us when we had questions about what was the most popular choices , offering her personal favorites too. I was there with 3 other ladies and it was a special time for us. I hope to see her again when I come back with others.
    First and foremost, bring back cauliflower as a consistent regular item. I specifically asked for it when making my reservation, and it was not available. It was stated that it was out of season, but so was the broccoli. As a recommendation, possibly bring in sugar snap peas. Another recommendation is to offer a salad with Casper Kale. This was used as a garnish, but Casper Kale is a very mild Kale and very tasty. I would love to have that with the house honey mustard dressing. ALSO, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE offer honey mustard dressing for sale like you used to. I was told well over a year ago now that it would be available for sale soon. We ask every time we come in for it. I think we purchased the last bottle of the older formulation before you changed to the latest formulation of the dressing. I really miss having it at home on a regular basis.
    Christina was excellent. She checked in often and quickly brought everything we needed. Great experience.
    Cooking times for the broth and the oil were different. I suggest a card and or a timer to aid in the proper cooking of items. Server went out of her way to write them down for us to help us remember them.
    We love The Melting Pot for special occasions. Our service and food has always been excellent. My only criticism would be that the amount of desserts does not match the amount of chocolate. I had to order more fruit (at a small price) to be able to enjoy the majority of the chocolate. Also, since my family does not eat marshmallows, that wastes some of our dessert choices. Perhaps allowing customers to choose which types of desserts they'd like would be better. Overall, we enjoy coming and will continue to come to The Melting Pot.
    Christina was excellent. She explained the menu and items in detail making our decisions easy. Very thorough in explaining the cooking procedures. Great overall service. We look forward to returning.
    One thing that continues to bug me every time is the hostess makes you wait until all of your party is present to seat you. I was given the reason due to all being able to make food choices together. After I insisted, I was finally seated and said the others could be brought to the table when they arrived. If I have a reservation, that should mean that a table is available for me and any guests to be seated at any time up to and following the reserved time...not made to wait till everyone shows up. If I'm on time, I want to be seated and perhaps get a drink and appetizer awhile.
