3 of us went there for Delaware Dines out week, what a poor choice. You would think they would go a little extra to attract new customers? We started out with cheese fondue with a small bowl of two different types of bread, both of which were very plain; nothing special at all. Included was an even smaller bowl of veges. Main course consisted of your choice of dipping broth and 4 small pcs. of chicken, 4 small pcs. of teriyaki steak, 4 spinach ravioli and 4 small to medium size shrimp per person. A side dish of sliced potatoes was included. Desert was your choice of chocolate fondue. Included for dipping were a slice of cheesecake for one, barely ripe sliced strawberrys, rice krispie treats and marshmallows. It was almost embarrasing! For 30 dollars per person? In addition a very small salad for 5 dollars extra. I ended up still having to make dinner when we got home. This place might be good for a first date, but not a good value at all. Very pricey! $7.50 for a glass of California wine? In general-stay away!

The last time we ate at the Melting Pot it was like something out of a horror movie - the air conditioner was going on and off with the power. The place was like an oven with all those steaming pots. The people in charge said this happens all the time and that the manager had been called but he would have to get in touch with the electrician... etc.

We were not offered any help and were pushed to take the dessert we had originally looked forward to even when our sweat was dripping on the table.

Will never go back there.

I love the chocolate there! I can't belive how GOOD the chocolate is. I'm not a big chocolate eater but I go here atleast once a month to eat their chocolate, and dip fruit in their chocolate. It's delicious! I really would recommend it to anyone.

This charming fondue restaurant is located in "Independence Mall," which mimics the real Independence Mall (and Hall) in Philadelphia. In addition to its homage, complete with mock liberty bell, this reservation-required restaurant serves food quickly despite the difficulty involved in timing a fondue dinner. The Melting Pot is pricey, though: dinner for two will cost $80-$115 depending on drinks ordered, including tip. A four course meal includes: cheese fondue dip, salad, entree (vegetarian option available), and dessert. If you're on a budget, dessert for two is only $25 plus tip.

PROS: Excellent food, vegetarian-friendly
CONS: Reservations required, always busy, expensive

My husband and I go to the melting pot every chance that we get. The food is always excellent, regardless of what we order. There is also an impressive wine list. Although it's difficult, try to save room for dessert. The dessert
