I have never been, but have always wanted to go because I LOVE fondue. Just never got around to it.

Finally decided it's been long enough and have a reservation there tomorrow night for my birthday party. I am so excited.

Anyone like this place?

YUM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It is SOOOOOOOOOOOO GOOD!!!! You really do get a lot of food but you are served over a long period of time. Don't get filled up on the bread and cheese although it is hard to resist. Take your time eating as they will not rush you thru each course. Ask the waiters about the different options you have and all and they are more than happy to tell you. We had a set menu the last time we went so we got a bit of everything

Really great..........there are a few different set menus you can choose from and you do get a little bit of everything like momof2dfw had mentioned. It is a great dining experience and you don't feel rushed at all. Great wine list as well! Enjoy!

I've only been once and I too, enjoyed it thoroughly! The food is great, and if you go with a group or another couple it is so much fun. Quite expensive, but you get your money's worth in my opinion. I think it is a great place for a special occasion.

Happy birthday!

OMG! Love Melting Pot. We try to do fondue in every city we've gone to. I've been to Melting Pot in Colorado, FL and DC. Too bad I didn't see this earlier and I could have told you what to order. LOL It's our go to restaurant for a special occassion. I last went for my birthday. By the way, you can also cook all of your food and ask for a to go box. You can also ask for extras of the side items. Just bring me more green goddess dip!

Been a few times, it's pretty pricey, be prepared. But yummy. Dessert is the best part. In fact to save money, we tend to go only for dessert!

We have not been, but our friends LOVE it. Expensive and time consuming. I do look forward to trying it sometime.

I LOVED it!!

Had such a good time. We did the full packages. We were seven people and it came out to $52 a person with tip, which really isn't terrible considering all the food you get and the fact you are there for over 3 hours. I have easily spent more than $50 eating out for sushi.

I probably wouldn't eat there for a random dinner because of the time thing, but for a party I think it's an AWESOME place. Would totally go back.
