Way OVER priced! – Melting Pot is good if your JUST going for desserts. I love the marshmallows dipped in chocolate. But the dinner is over priced and not good. Dipping raw chicken in hot oil is not my idea of an expensive meal and would rather someone just cook it for me. There is nothing unique about this fondue experience and tastes justs mediocre. Melting Pot should stick with desserts only!
NO WAY ...DONT WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY – Take it from someone who travels and eats out often. I would NOT reccommend this facility. It was our first time there and were totally misguided. We were never told that our main meal would arrive raw/uncooked!! The idea of raw meats,poultry and seafood touching each other was upsetting in itself . Then the waitress was going into this speech about don't cross contaminate any of your foods. Keeping in mind we were never told our main dish would arrive in this manner. My husband and I had to leave and did not proceed with our dinner. The idea that for $80.00 I had to risk my meal being cooked properly (boiled at that) was sick. To take each piece and wait until it was cooked didn't sound like a good meal to me. Who eats a bite at a time? The thought of boiled filet didn't appeal to us,etc. Then management comes over and offered to go in back and deep fry our meal if we wanted. HMM sure for 80.00 please go deep fry this stuff...Could you imagine that?? What a dissapointment. Not worth the money or time. If someone would have warned us that we would be boiling our dinner we would had never gone there. Please be aware of this situation.
Food was wonderful! – We had a great time and had PLENTY of food! Had so many different foods to select and taste it was incredible. The servers were great and we had such a wonderful time! Very special....thank you
The best fondue experience I have ever had! – My company hosted our sales dinner at this restaurant, and what a wonderful decision it was! After being promptly seated, we were greated by our very energetic and cheerful server, who had us smiling and laughing the whole night. We split three of the featured "Big Night Out" dinner plans. The one I had included carribean seasoned steak and chicken, along with shrimp and pork. We had the spinach and artichoke cheese fondue, which was amazing. The spinach and the artichoke added a nice soft flavor to the cheese, and went well with the bread and apple dippers we had. I had the spinach and mushroom salad, which is served with a warm vingerette dressing. I wasn't sure if I'd like the warm dressing, but it was absolutely one of the best salads I have ever had. We chose the Coq au Vin cooking style for the meats. the seasoning in the broth was wonderful. I particularly like the seasoned steaks we had, they were encrusted in carribean-jerk seasonings and were spicy and delicious. For desert, we had the Yin and Yang chocolate fondue, which is dark and white chocolate swirled side by side to look like a yin yang. My favorite part of that was the poundcake that we got to drizzle the chocolate on, and our server even brought us extra dippers when we ran out!
I've had fondue before, and have even made it at home, but this was by far the best. Their cheese and dessert fondues were the most flavorful and unique that I have ever seen at a fondue restaurant. We also had a vegetarian in the group, and her entree was served on a seperate dish, and she had her own cooking broth to cook her veggies in! I will definitely be returning to dine here again!
Fondue is a great experience!! – Everything lived up to its standards from the service to the atmosphere and the food! my friends and I went after hearing such great reviews from everyone we knew even though we had no clue what fondue was. The server told us everything that we needed to know (and then some), we were a little hesitant at first but our server assured us it was easy and worth the experience. The menu had many different choices to choose from, like seafood, veggetarian plate and anything between. The cheese course i guess like the appetizer was so good we ate every bite we could! The entree that we learned we cook ourselves was so easy despite our hesitance in the beginning. It came out perfect everytime and all the sauces were more than amazing on everything. And the options to choose from the dessert were the hardest part of the evening but worth the struggle. The chocolate came with cheesecake (my favorite) and fruit and some other desserts that were all delicious without the chocolate even. I cant wait to go again!
Best date spot in Michigan! – I MUST compliment the entire staff at the Troy location af The MeltingPot, from the host, to our server, and even the managers. My wife and I agree that our dining experience was the best we've ever had! We recommend this magnificent restaurant to ANY and ALL who want to Dip into Something Different!!
Best service I have ever had! – This was definitely a great restaurant to celebrate my 1 year anniversary! I have been hearing about it for a while from coworkers and friends and decided to celebrate there. When I called to make a reservation, I was able to have roses sitting on the table when we arrived. I am hard to impress, but that gave me some major points when we were sat! My girlfriend is allergic to nuts, but that was not a problem. The waitress assured me that everything is made from scratch and made modifications as needed. We started off with the spinach and artichoke cheese and it was amazing! We then had salads, which were great! If you like mushrooms, get the spinach mushroom salad. When it came time to getting our entree, our waitress gave me the sauces that my girlfriend could not have and had a napkin labeled "contains nuts". We did have to cook everything ourselves, which was a little weird at first. After a few items, we got the hang of it. It was nice to have steak that wasn't overcooked like most other restaurants we go to. The variety was great with the big night out selection we chose. We started to get full and wanted to save room for dessert, so our server suggested we cook the rest up and take it home with a variety of sauces. Then came the dessert, which we chose the special banana foster one. There were definitely a lot of items on the plate, but we got through it! When we first got the dessert, the hostess came over to us and took our picture. We got a frame with it while we were clearing off the dessert plate. I would have to say overall it was the best experience I have ever received at a restaurant! The only problem was that there were a lot of choices to make at the beginning, but it will be fun going back to try them all! Karlee was definitely a fun and great waitress who helped make our experience even better! I never imagined an experience could be romantic and fun at the same time! This will definitely be our place to go for every anniversary now!
One of the best places for fondue – I loved the atmosphere and the service. I thought the fondue was delicious ( almost addicting), and the side selections were varied. Lots of broccoli and we ate it up. We order a bottle of Chardonnay that had a good flavor with the fondue. This was our first time there, and liked the fun of it. We would definetely go back.
best experience – I had the time of my life when i went to the MeltingPot!!!! Everything was phenominal. It was my 15th anniversary and I wanted to go somewhere different so I looked up great restaurants on the internet and decided to go to the MeltingPot. It was so much fun. It was my first time so I was excited yet nervous that I wouldn't like it but I had the best time. It seemed like the entire staff knew it was our anniversary and came to congratulate us. I had the spinach artichoke cheese that was the best i ever tasted and then we had salads that were also great. The entree consisted of different meats and seafood but i don't like seafood so the server let me substitute and get whatever I wanted. Then came the chocolate!! Oh it was delectable! I highly recommend the cookies and cream marshmallow dream! Anyway, I can't believe other people had a bad experience because everything was spectacular and I will become a regular!!!!
Go Now! – I went to The Meltingpot in Troy on a date.... a night I'll never forget. We were sat in a timely matter at a very romantic booth. Our server was amazing! It seemed like we were his only table even though it was a busy Friday night. The food was amazing-- the four courses of the dinner were very satisfying, and the experience of the night was different from any other restaurant that I've been to. The manager came over to our table and was very friendly... I felt that he was genuinely interested in us and our time in the restaurant! I can't wait to go back!
I would recommend this restaurant for ANYONE I talk to... you can't go wrong!
