Success! Thanks for posting your review of The Melting Pot. You’ve done the world some good today.

Buyer Beware!!!

I went to this establishment recently and had a nice experience, however I was overcharged on my credit card. After speaking with management on this matter I was not listened to nor was I treated with any respect. I have been to this restaurant before and am normally impressed with the food and unique experience. The customer recovery has ensured I'll never return(at least not to the Tacoma location.) The food an... view more

Big disappointment

My wife had herd about the meltingpot from friends at work and it seemed like it would be an interesting place to try out, so we went there for our first anniversary. When we arrived we were seated within 5 min so that was definitely good. Our waitress was very good and had our drinks and food out to us fast. We started with the cheese fondue which was basically the mexican four cheeses you find get at the store mixe... view more

Can't keep a secret!!!!

Ok so I felt it was a very cool concept. Many courses spread out, allowing you to have great conversations,.......HOWEVER!!!! My friend was getting engaged & we told them it was a secret they did really well when seating us in a private style dining area, BUT when the couple (who were to be engaged) got there the hostess said. ""are you here for the engagement party?"" What?!?! Are you serious? Then when we told the ... view more

Not very happy

My Fiance' (then boyfriend) decided to have a surpise engagment party for me, yet once we walked in the door it was no surprise at all. The hostess asked if we were there for the ""Surprise Engagment Party"" NICEEEE! So I got over all that because I was so excited....but it only got worse from there. Our waitress was rude everytime she even spoke to us. The young men who were filling our waters etc were WONDERFUL!!!!... view more

Fun, fun, fun

I have been there at least a dozen times. The service and food quality is awesome. I would highly recommend this restaurant if your looking for something different.

Not worth the money

Unfortunately, our experience with this restaurant was not a good one. The food was dismal, the quality of the meat was terrible (chunks of fat in a filet?), the fondue broth had no flavor at all. The chocolate for the desert was just Hershey's syrup, nothing special. The restaurant was loud the night we were there (graduation celebrations) and very busy. We were seated promptly and the service was excellent; however... view more

I have been there a couple of times and had a blast each time. Nice and quiet and private. Good for dates.

We have been there twice and will go again

Some of the previous posts are ridiculous. Like the person who said ?Warning: food is cooked at table BY PATRONS THEMSELVES (read: poor service disguised as a cultural experience)?. Are you kidding me? What did you think you were going to do at a FONDUE restaurant? Did you expect them to feed it to you? We have gone here two anniversaries in a row and have loved it both times. We don?t go expecting to spend what we w... view more

Way overpriced

Yeah, for fondue it's fine, but holy crap, if I'm gonna pay 80 bucks, I'd rather have a well cooked meal, not something that basically amounts to cook-your-own stew. Go there just for dessert--that was really the only part that was worth a dang.

I love it!

Great service, great food, AWESOME restaurant! Great dinner for two people and the dessert is to die for. I will definitely be going again!
