What a night! Perfect anniversary celebration down to the details with the Ultimate 5 Course Expereince. Food was great, as usual, drinks were amazing and Jeff... He was the Man! Best server I have had there and made the experience memorable. Looking forward to having that experience again.

My boyfriend and I came here for the first time on our birthday. It was a wonderful experience. We plan on going once a month from now on to treat ourselves. All of the staff was friendly, professional, and knowledgeable about everything on the menu. It is an experience that almost can't be explained.....just go!

I posted a very bad review 2 weeks ago because frankly it was warranted. But we decided to come back and give it another try, but only because the manager gave us a $100 gift certificate for our horrible experience. We were so worried it would be another bad experience. But it was like night and day. This time our sever, Terry, was wonderful and attentive. Our drinks and food came quickly and were delicious. I'm sorry I didn't get the waiter's name from 2 weeks ago because we saw him in the restaurant again this time. Hopefully he has received more training so nobody has to go through the truly terrible service and food we received last time. This location has redeemed itself. Glad we gave it another try.

My husband took me here for my birthday and we had a wonderful experience. Everyone was so kind and made my birthday feel really special :) The food was all amazing and I loved the atmosphere here. The booths have high walls so it felt very private and lovely. The highlight of our visit was our server, Nina. She really made our night. She was friendly and attentive, and most importantly, she took my food allergies very seriously. I don't think I've ever felt this comfortable eating out at a restaurant. I can't thank her enough for making what can sometimes be a stressful experience just a really comfortable and memorable one. We'll definitely be back soon!

We went for my birthday, great place to celebrate a special occasion. Our server was was kind and attentive. We did the 4 course fondue and each had 2 drinks. It doesn't sound like a lot of food or look like a lot, but we were stuffed. It's a place you should try at least once. My only complaint is that the cooking station is not user friendly when you have 1 vegetarian and 1 meat eater dining together, we work around it though. Since it's a little bit of a hassle I'm only able to get my boyfriend to go once a year or so.

This is the best place to take your special someone for something out of the norm. The food is incredible and they even do little special things for you too. My wife and I came here for our anniversary … again. The drinks are good and it is a nice quiet atmosphere with small private booths as well as larger ones as well. I believe the reason it is so quiet is that everyone is to busy eating to talk. It may be on the high side for a meal but, just remember you get what you pay for and you will not go home hungry still.

We went for Valentine's date night and ate from the regular menu. It was very busy but it seemed like they were moving tables at a fair speed. Our experience took about 3 hours but we were our server's only table in that area which I think contributed to a longer lag time between courses. Our server was attentive and made sure everything was the right consistency and we had everything we needed. I recommend the loaded potato cheese course, the flaming turtle chocolate course, and the white peach cocktail!

Came here for a date night. Server was well groomed, full of energy and great up until we got to the dessert. Waiter had S’mores on his mind instead of the chocolate Turtle that I asked for. I did not do a good job at ordering my 🍷 for neither. I had one that had too much pepper in it and one was too sweet much much rum. We ordered the pacific rim was not big on the shrimp would stick to the steak lovers fondue next time possibly.

Hadn’t been to a Melting Pot in 20 years. This was wonderful. Sooo much food. That 1st course was a dream. Melted seasoned cheese with a variety of breads and vegetables. I could of just eaten this & left happy. The salad were fresh & delicious. We went with the fusion entrees & it was very generous. We were full but no way are we saying no to melted chocolate with Oreo marshmallows and cake bites. Every course was pretty perfect. Our waitress was professional & attentive & friendly.
