    Karen was the best served I've ever had. The food was great and will defiantly return to sit in her section again.
    I don’t think I would have changed anything! We were there for my birthday and from the point that we entered the restaurant and they gave me a birthday card to when we finally called it quits on the amazing chocolate fondue, everything was perfect! Our waiter David was friendly and knowledgeable without hovering.
    The food is mefiocre. Definitely not wowed and it's expensive. The atmosphere, novelty and location to the Schnitz make it a do again, esp with a child.
    None at this time. We enjoyed our time at the restaurant. The environment and all of the staff were friendly with a good balance of suffocation.
    We really appreciate accommodating our schedule slip, especially since we had the awesome corner booth in Lovers' Lane for my wife's birthday. I guess there was a staffing goof, where they were short on servers and slammed at the same time -- this made our meal a bit slower than optimal, but at least offered some much-needed time for digesting.
    The Melting Pot is a bit pricey for us, but we appreciate the great food etc. We had a very experienced server, but the new menu and pricing structure made it so I sent him back to redo the bill - a classic combo without salad, vs everything separate just no salad. Made a difference whether we owed or not after applying a wonderful gift card I had received from a client for a job well done. We just paid the tip. Perfect!
    All workers did a superior job!
    Our server was amazing! The rest of the staff was less than pleasant. I love to take my wife out to dine at $100+ plate restaurants. We do it regularly. I don't like to dress flashy. I do all day for work. I feel that from the moment we walked through the door. The staff at the entry desk were very judgemental. Especially when my wife and I informed them that we don't drink so happy hour wouldn't suffice instead of a dinner reservation. We were told to go sit around the corner to wait for a table. Then escorted to a table tucked way in the back around a corner. It kind of put me off glancing around the corner seeing the young lady Mgr visiting everyone else's table and announcing her title. She walked right past our table to introduce herself to the table next to us. But never once stopped at our table. Just set the tone for how they appreciated our business. My wife doesn't eat bacon or blue cheese. Her salad came with both. When I kindly mentioned it to the waiter he apologised and took the salad to get it fixed. Then returned with it only to have fixed the blue cheese issue. But it was piled with bacon. At the end of the meal it took forever to get the final course. By then I felt so bad for the staff and the fact that they were to quick to judge a couple just out for dinner. That I tipped the poor guy 40% on a $110 meal. To think I only come up here to Portland for business or like this trip our annual school board convention. We might give them another chance but there are to many other dining options here to lose a customer over acting better than someone. I work all day and into the night jeans and a sweater are a nice change of pace from all day in a business suit. Other than this our experience was ok. Food was great though!
    Wonderful experience. I took my niece out for her 19th Birthday and her first time at the Melting Pot (it's one of my favorite places). She was presented with a card when we sat down, wishing her a Happy Birthday which was nice and made her feel special.
    You can make sure your servers don't ignore patrons on slow nights. Every time I've visited the Portland Melting Pot location when it was busy, the waitstaff has been very attentive so this was an unexpectedly disappointing experience. Regarding the cheddar fondue, you can make sure the actual cheese to liquid ratio is enough to maintain an actual cheddar flavor. You can make sure that patrons don't wait too long between courses. You can make sure that your servers actually pay attention to the temperature of the fondue and cooking liquids.
