The best dinner ever! I can't get enough of the cheese fondue! A great date night spot! The tables have high sides which makes it feel very private and intimate. The waitors are awesome too, friendly and accommodating.

The best service and food ever!!!

My Aunt and I came here for a nice night out. She is very picky and a very hard person to please when it comes to food. By the end of the night, she was almost licking the bowl! The food was soooooooooo good and flavorful. After each course, we could hardly wait to see what was coming up next. The presentation of the food was great. Our server was so nice and helpful and went above and beyond for us. When we first got there my aunt told him that she had never been there before and that she wanted him to give us the full exerience. That is exactly what we got! Everything he suggested was right on. (Thanx Tony) We are already planning our next visit. We wont be going back to to Forever Fondue after this.

5 stars! This is the best food I've ever eaten, seriously! The service was excellent. It was well worth the high bill. The only downside is valet parking only unless you want to walk a mile. But again WORTH IT!

best dining experience

The night we went to this restaurant was one of my favorite dining experiences of San Diego. We had an amazingly friendly and knowledgeable waiter. The food was delicious and the wine recommendations were spot on. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a delicious, romantic and lovely paced dining experience.

The Total Food Experience

Let's start the voting: Best Date Place! Best Dessert! Most Romantic!
Where should I awesome restaurant to take a date. This place is pretty new, and the atmosphere is dimly lit with soft music playing in the background. Just remember: Fondue is an experience. Don't come here just to eat food. Come here to EXPERIENCE food. This restaurant has very fresh food that you fondue at the table: yes, you cook it yourself. That's the fun of it. You cook what you want, dip it in any number of awesome sauces, mix flavors around...and the service staff will help you along the way to show you how to make the best of it. Tasty cocktails and wines top it off, but the best part was the entire staff had a real good vibe to them. We didn't have a reservation, so I reccommend calling before you go (we did go on a Sat. night...) Chocolate for everyone!

Awesome spot for wine & romance

Wow. What a different & fun dining experience. The MeltingPot has excellent wine choices, and fondue is definately a fun way to spend some romantic time with someone you want to have fun with! We paired cheese fondue with different wines, and my girl and I finished it all off with the best melted chocolate in town. The restaurant is very clean, romantic and cozy. The staff was great...everyone was smiling and seemed to really love the whole fondue thing. We will be back!
