The food was good and the employees were very professional. I was harraased for the second time by two different homeless men, two years apart. It is not safe when the dirty homeless get violent because you refuse to give them money! I

We took our son to this place for the first time, he really enjoyed the dining experience. A bit pricey but worth it for a special occasion.

We reserved a spot for our Anniversery, and are so very glad we did. The place is great and everyone needs to do it atleast once. Yes it can be expensive but truly worth the price for a memory you will never forget. It is romantic, Staff

The Melting Pot is great for a special date such as an anniversary or Valentines Day. It is expensive, but worth the experience that you have while you are there. The food is great, but the best part of the entire experience is the desert. It's indescribeable! It's not a place you would visit often, but definately a place that everyone should go once!

They've got the romantic end of it locked up. Its a beautiful room, with the tables very privately situated so as to minimize the other guests in view. Doing fondue is a neat way to make an evening special; its fun to cook at the table.

First of all, make reservations! This should be done preferably a few days to a few weeks in advance. Second, leave the kids at home. Third, come hungry and get the four course meal. In the long run it is well worth it. Expect to be there
