The Melting Pot Restaurant

Updated on November 25, 2012

The Melting Pot Restaurant Review

The Melting Pot is truly a memorable dining experience. The fondue is made right at the table, where guests cook their own food. The cheese, broth and chocolate fondues are delightfully delicious. Our 4 course meal started with a cheese fondue with slices of apples, chips and bread. Our dinner included, Lobster, Citrus Infused Pork Tenderloin, Sushi-Grade Ahi Tuna, Garlic Chili Chicken Breast, Kiwi Lime Shrimp, Spring Vegetable Dumplings, and fresh vegetables. For dessert we indulged in heavenly fruits and treats, such as cherries, strawberries, cheesecake, pound cake, marshmallows and brownies, which we dipped in the fondue pot that was in the center of our table and filled with mouthwatering melted milk chocolate.

I have been to The Melting Pot on two occasions. As a group, the dining experience was truly a memorable dining experience. As a couple celebrating an anniversary, the dinning experience was very romantic. So whether you're dining as a group or as a couple, dining at The Melting Pot is a dining experience that you won't soon forget.

Our 10 year anniversary is in November so I have a good excuse to go back. Thanks for the pics of the food...I'm having cravings now.
