Not up to expectations – We went for our anniversary for the first time. We expected the food to be much better. We had the big night out since it was a special evening we decided to splurge. The cheese fondue was good, not over top just good. I could have done as well at home. The salad was again good but nothing special, just iceberg lettuce, fake bacon, 3 slices of tomato and dressing, again I could have done as well at home. The entree was nothing short of boiled meat...rather gross. The only way it was palatable was drowning it in some kind of sauce. Which they drove us crazy asking if we needed more sauce. Desert was so so. We had the flaming turtle. The flame part was fun. It came assorted fruit, a tiny wedge of cheesecake and 4 tiny cubes of brownie and red velvet cake. The cake and brownies tasted stale. Overall not at all what we expected for our meal that was over $80. My glass of wine was good, the atmosphere was nice, the server was nice and that's about it. No desire to return for boiled meat and veges, that we had to cook and pay way too much for.
We love this place – love the food, the atmosphere and the service is always top notch. So good!
Great anniversary dinner – We were greeted with a friendly smile, seated on time in our private booth. Waiter was on top of his game and the the food was amazing. We enjoyed the "Big Night Out" and left very full and happy. We will definitly be back to enjoy again.
It's hip to dip at this cozy fondue-lover's paradise. – In Short
Booths equipped with tabletop fondue pots are clustered together inside the intimate dining room. Start with a cheese fondue, including an assortment of breads, veggies and fruits for dipping. Entrees include lobster, center-cut filet, fish, chicken and vegetarian selections served with a variety of dipping sauces. For dessert, try the flaming turtle, a mix of chocolate and caramel flambéed tableside, served with nut-covered marshmallows, fresh fruit, pound cake, brownies and cheesecake.
Skimpy portions – Very nice atmosphere, good service, but my husband and I thought the food quality was unimpressive. We just didn't care for the flavor of the cheese fondue and found that the portion of our entrees (steak and lobster) were extremely small. The dessert tasted fantastic and had a delicious chocolate sauce, but the portions were very skimpy. For the amount of money we spent, we still left hungry. We won't be back.
superb – i surprised my girlfriend with red roses, and the private room in the back . she melted. We had so much fun, the food was awesome, service was incredible. Our server made ordering easy, and was always there when we needed.
most of all, they have the best drinks in town. we tried the Yin and yang, a vodka & ice cream drink, unbelievable; the white choclate raspberry martini, the mintchoclatechip martini, and the choclatechip martini.....all exceptional. and they've also got a peach cosmo, that's light and refreshing, and definitely tasty, which is actually aiding in raising money for St. Judes Hospital in memphis. The experience is awesome, but the people and the owners seem to have good hearts too, they are raising money for hurricane victims, for autism research, and the fore-mention St. Judes hosptial.
How can you not enjoy this experience!!!!!!!
User review by terilee – I suprised my husband here on our anniversary. He is the hardest man to please and he absolutely loved it! I reserved the private room. It was small, but very romantic. We have never had such fun. My husband wants to go there all the time now. The food was great and fun to cook ourselves. The service was good too. We spent about $150 with tip, but it was worth it. Highly recommend the curtained booth ( private room) keeps your romance private. Dark, romantic, fun!
I would also recommend for a fun dessert treat with your older kids if you have the money...
Over Rated – This chain store much like the others is way over rated. Save your self a bad meal. Eat at a chain steaak house. The food will be fresher and cheaper.
Can you say restaurant Chain? – Just like the others, its way over priced. The food was not even marginally good. Totally disappointed. At least the fast food restaurants serve it with a smile and give you change back!
WONDERFUL – I have been to the Melting Pot 3 times now and I have loved it every single time! It is a bit expensive, but it is well worth the money. The food is wonderful as is the experience. When you go, make sure you get the chocolate fondue! It is amazing!! They give you melted chocolate with all sorts of things to dip into it.......bananas, marshmellows, strawberries, brownies, and so much more!
