A great place to go for something different and fun. For a special time with a loved one or just a night out with the girls.
Great atmosphere and lots of choices

A true favorite! A great place for "special" dinners and celebrations. The staff is excellent and attentive but not too much so. They assist in recommendations and also make a point to recognize any special occasion. An experience to plan time for and not rush.

I love this restaurant! I visit this restaurant about 4 times a year and really look forward to it. Yes, it is a bit expensive but it's not an every day kind of place. You need to enjoy the company of the person you're with because it's a 2 hour meal at least. I love everything from the salad to the cheese to the chocolate. I highly recommend it for a romantic night on the town.

My fiance picked this one to propose to me. When you call for reservations they ask if you're celebrating anything. He told them about the surprise, and they gave us the perfect seating! We had our own private area and the server was great! I was scared we wouldn't cook our food right, but he explained everything perfect. I think we tipped our server more than anyone else that has ever served us.

My boyfriend took me here for my birthday. I had been a few times before, and have always adored it, and this time was no exception! We look very young for our age, and sometimes have a problem getting quality service. Here, were treated like royalty by our great waitress!

My birthday fell on a Sunday, and we made reservations for that evening. When we got there, we realized we definitely didn't need the reservations! There were only two other groups there in the entire restaurant! You'd think it'd have been quiet, but one of the groups was a noisy wedding shower, downstairs. It was definitely bearable, though.

We got the entire shabang, with the salad (I got the mushroom salad... DELICIOUS!), cheese fondue (sharp cheddar), meat (which is absolutely amazing...) and chocolate turtle desert. I adore chocolate covered strawberries, and alwasy devour them quickly, and they offer to replenish the strawberries each time.

I can't say enough wonderful things about this restaurant. There's always more food than you can eat, and every bite of the meat (especially the filet mignon!) is delicious.

If you have room to spare, get one of their wonderful coffees (I always get the Mocha), they come with cool rock-candy to sweeten it up!

This is a splurge for us, but one that is worth it! We will probably go back for our 4th anniversary this July!

Pros: Cafe Mocha, and Chocolate fondue

Cons: None !

The reviewer from april 13 obviously had no clue where she was going. its a FONDUE restaurant. my wife and i went there Saturday night for the first time in a few years and it was outstanding. good food, and the service might be the best in Charlotte. the bartender chose a perfect bottle of wine for us, and the server chose our dessert. and i find it hard to believe she spent $114 on cheese and chocolate (which by the way, the dessert wins best of Charlotte all the time for good reason!). $60 maybe, with the rest on drinks. which, apparenty, she should have had.
only complaint was the prom kids were a little loud, but they left shortly after we got there

Guess what people; we have real restaurants in Charlotte with chefs that put great thought into dishes, taste and a beautiful presentation here in town. They have wonderful wait staffs that are attentive when it comes to your needs, while invisible when it comes to your intimate conversation with your fellow diners. You do not have to pay $124.00 for shared appetizers and desserts ( no entree) for 4 with all the culinary delights equal or below that of an easy bake oven! This meal consists of 2 trays of 4 cauliflowers, 1 celery stick, 6 baby carrots, one apple, a bowl of diced bread. These come with a bowl of beer and cheddar cheese, for dipping. Bon appetit! What is this? REALLY frugal football fare? But come now. I am hardly being fair. There is the delectable dessert tray. (I joke!) 2 trays (for 4 to share) each consisting of a couple of sliced strawberries, a few marshmallows, 2 one inch brownie squares, a couple of slices off a banana, and a one inch wide slice of cheesecake to share for 2 with a bowl of chocolate. I only wish I were joking! It is very wise to come here with a GREAT sense of humor, no inhibition about wasting your assets, very little appetite, and VERY VERY low expectations for your taste buds. Did I mention it is located in a strip shopping center? But to top it off a poor child across from us was writhing in pain and crying after burning herself. Has her mother not heard? If you can't take the heat, stay out of the kitchen? Oh wait! We weren't in the kitchen! But yet, in fact we might as well have been. Two people had a couple of drinks to be fair about the tab. With this food and price it may be considered medicinal purposes.

Cons: everything else

I have visited this establishment since it came to Charlotte many times over the years, and I have found it to be full of atmosphere, fun and good food. I have always recommended this restaurant to friends and out-of-towners. It is amazing how one night with one very bad server and an apathetic and unapologetic manager can ruin what is supposed to be a special night. I am not going to go into details of a completely ruined night, but I wanted everyone else to know: Caveat Emptor?It can be a fantastic place to dine just as long as you do not complain. If you do, let us just hope your flavor of the month server, manager and upper management are much more responsive than whom I experienced. This can be true of any restaurant anywhere, but I was very disappointed to find this true for this place. Otherwise, though, bon appetit!

Pros: Fun for couples and groups, food is good, service typically good.

Cons: Price and service (just one bad waitress/manager can ruin your special night).

My husband and i ate here recently for our anniversary. we had been here before, and loved it, but this time our server was the best we had ever had anywhere. David B. (don't know his last name) gave recommendations all along the way, all of which were perfect. from the wine that went best with our cheese, to the bottle we got with our entree, to the port with dessert. I had never had port and my husband had tried it before and hated it. but David brought us a taste with our chocolate, and that made all the difference. The food and atmosphere there are always great (although the AC kept me shivering untiul the entree).

Lovely place and set up.
I brought a large group of friends there couple months ago and really liked it.
Servers have a great knowledge on menu and wine list, they made our life easier with their good recommendations. The quality of meat is outstanding, only con will be maybe the cheese fondue not as good as i expected it.

We celebrated our anniversary here. It's great for a special occasion. However... the first couple rooms of tables are normal restaurant tables & booths. If it's a special event, be sure to make reservations & get a private table in the back room. There are walls surrounding your L-shaped booth, so that you essentially feel like you're on your own. However, you do definitely hear the noise of the other tables. We went at 6pm & all was quiet. Things got relatively noisy at 7pm.

My wife and I have dined at The Melting Pot several times a year for the last 10 years. We have always had a great evening of delicious food and outstanding service. Recently, we took a couple of friends there who were in town visiting. We had a blast! My friends are wine geeks and were very impressed with the Wine List. I recommend this restaurant to those seeking a different dining experience. You will be happy with the quality of food, drink, and service.

I recently took my wife and 6 year old son for dinner. After spending around $70, we got to cook our own food (around $15 worth at the grocery store). The quality of the meat was pretty good. The swiss cheese fondue was horrible. The salad was pretty good (how do you mess up salad?)
We did not get much to eat for the money. We spent the entire time cooking our dinner one bite at a time instead of enjoying eachother's company. We left smelling like the food. I do not recommend this one. Make no mistake, you are paying for the novelty of a fondue restaurant, not for a quality fine dinner. I suggest spending $40 on your own fondue pot. At least you get something out of the dinner!

The Melting Pot is truly one of those places that you have to try once in your life. The service is great. It is a little pricey, not somewhere you would go every week end. If you have a special night planned, this would surely be a place to consider. Guys this would be an excellent place to go on a second or third date. A little intimate for the first date.
