If you are looking for a romantic slow dinner with your lover, then this is a good bet. Service is good, slow is due to having to cook your food yourself in the pans. Plan on getting at least two different types of cooking pans to spice things up a bit. Also plan on a desert melt afterwards.

Pros: Good for small intimate group

Cons: Bad for groups, too hard to manage all the forks in the pans.

Service was ok, but so was the food. Fun place to eat at with friends. A little expencive! You have to try this place once just to say you have been there.

Cons: food is only ok!

The cheese fondue and salad are pretty good. But cooking your own steak and seafood in boiling broth was just plain? plain. I?m not a dessert fan, but that looked good too.

Dinner for 2 with a bottle of wine was $145 (with tip). Pretty expense for meat boiled in broth.

Unfortunately, we will be back next year for her birthday, again.

This is definatly not a hurried dinner. Each table is given about 2 hours for dinner. As soon as you walk in the doors everything just slows down and the relaxation starts. The food is delicious, your choice of cheese fondue to start( I like the swiss best). Then the entree is a cut of various meats(filet, chicken, pork) and seafood(scallops, shrimp,lobster) or you can go for the vegetarian selection and veggies. And then a nice selection of original dessert fondues. Dining here is an experiance to savor. We've also done a few big gatherings here, usually takes about 4 hours for a large group(around 40ppl). We closed the place down once! And we never felt rushed. I would not recommend this place for young kids though, hot fondue burners on the table and the time the whole experiance takes is asking a bit too much from young ones. If you are looking for a romantic dinner, this is it!

Pros: Great romantic date night to linger over your food and your date!

Cons: Not ideal for young children

The Melting Pot is a great place to spend a good amount of time while eating amazing food. Whether you want to spend a couple hours getting to know your date or gabbing with your friends, this is the place to go. From the cheese to the chocolate fondue and all the food in between, you will love every bite and be stuffed when you leave. Make sure to try the mushrooms stuffed with Green Goddess!

PROS: Great for dates or parties
CONS: Longer than the average dinner

If you want a nice quiet place for a special occasion this is the place to go. My husband and I go here when we have a babysitter and want to actually "spend time together". You have to save room for dessert, White chocolate fondue with amaretto.

I think the Melting Pot is a great date restaurant - it seems to fit that very well. The staff is courteous and they offer some unique dishes. My only complaint is that I had to wait a little longer than expected a couple of times I've gone there. Other than that - the food and service has always been very good. Its also very reasonably priced compared to other "romantic" restuarants in the area

PROS: atmosphere, uniqueness
CONS: price

Tried this place twice, both times proved VERY disappointing! Food quality is okay, service is horrid. Our dining experience lasted 4 1/2 hours, NOT by our chosing! Extremely expensive, not good for kids, not really good for adults either. On a positive, it was unique - I guess its worth a try, once, hope your experience will be better than mine.

Be prepared - This is an experience, not just a meal. It takes an entire evening to dine and you DO cook the meal yourself at your table - that IS the fondue concept. Some consider that a "con" but I love it.

The food is delicious. The dessert is TO DIE FOR and sometimes we go in just for that. Thankfully, service at this branch is more consistant than at others in this chain.

Would I go with kids? Well, that depends on the kids. I've been seated near children several times and it wasn't a problem. Large groups? Well, the style of dining forces a feeling of 'division' into smaller groups, even at the large tables because it's 4 to a cooking pot. If you don't mind that, it's fun to do.

The romance level is VERY high. They are ALL ABOUT the special occasion!

While visiting the St. Pete area, I wanted a romantic and cozy restaurant to bring my wife to. The St. Pete Melting Pot was unbelievable. The hostess and staff were extremely friendly and the service was very attentive and personable. The very professional and friendly manager stopped by our table a few times to answer all of our questions and to help and assist us in any way. The food and drinks were spectacular (especially the chocolate fondue). Thanks again for a great evening and we will see you every time we are in town at your wonderful restaurant.

There are a lot of restaurants in the bay area that are romantic and fun. The Melting Pot in St. Petersburg, FL delivered the most romantic dinner for me and my wife. The service has greatly improved over our last visit more than a year ago. Our server guided us through a wonderful night of fondue!!! The food was fresh and tasty, and the managers were truly hospitable and friendly! Thank you Melting Pot!

I am the head of a pharmacutical sales group, and we have group meetings monthly at different dining establishments around St. Petersburg. I just have to say that the Melting Pot on 4th street by and far surpassed most of the restaurants that we have visited. The group setting was a private table for 10, and the Management team helped us design a menu that was budget-friendly without sacrificing food quality, amount, or presentation! We WILL be back soon!

My family and I had the most wonderful experience at the St. Petersburg Melting Pot. The service was outstanding, and the food very tasty. We loved the abundence of sauces and, yes, above all, the dessert! The management team went out of the way to make sure we had everything we needed and made mom (two moms) feel VERY special! Thank you!!!
