This dining experience is one of a kind. Not only are you served amazing food and desserts, the ambiance is second to none! You can enjoy a nice relaxing dinner while "cooking" your own food. Plan on being here at least and hour and a half, and have fun! Sine the meal takes a little longer than a traditional restaurant, you usually have space for dessert! They are out of this world - especially the Ying & Yang!

You will love this place if you like new sytles of cooking traditional items, steak, chicken, shrimp. You start with a cheese fondu and sides of differents breads, fruit, and vegies. Then you follow with one of their amazing salads. I perfer the house with the sweet tangy dressing. Then We always go with the signature selection. Steak, chicken,shrimp, fish, and filet. We cook using the traditional oil. Then we always follow with the flaming turtle chocolate fondu. Its excellant. Dont go here if your going to complain about cooking your own food....duhhhh people its fondu, its the whole point. Worth the price as well. no complaints!

I came here for my birthday with my family and had a wonderful time. I love how the tables are completely private, (well are big party table was). And you are served your meal with 3 courses, appetizer with bread & cheese, meats & cheese, and dessert. This is great because you have more time to digest your food in between so you can stuff yourself more!!! Its that good, you literally don't want to stop eating, haha. So the servers bring out all your dishes and mix and cook the cheeses right there in front of you on the table, so if you want quick service don't bother coming here. This place is more of a higher class setting, where patience is a virtue and it will definitely be rewarded!

We went to this restaurant in Jan 2007. The setting was very romantic and the fondue was great. We had the "Big Night Out" and enjoyed all four courses. The service was spectacular. They were very accommodating with alternatives. I needed to have more vegetables and fruits to dip because I am on a low carb diet. Make sure you save room for the chocolate fondue!!!

This was the best restaurant that my wife and I have ever eaten at. The food was great. Service was excellent! We weren't rushed out to seat someone else like the other restaurants in town.

Pros: very romantic

Cons: didn't have any!

Wait staff did not have oil set at right temperature, we waited for about 20 minutes for our food to begin cooking. Vegetables served with dinner were browning and not professionally cut - I actually had a whole potato on my plate. We were left to pour our own wine and service stopped once bill was paid - No coffee refills or water refills. Quite a disappointment and one is left to wonder how Tampa can be so pleased with such a mediocre restaurant.

Pros: Quiet booths, dessert is fun

Cons: Horrible dinner and service was the worst

Go for the fondue and the dessert. The rest of the meal is ok but over priced. Very private and romantic.

Pros: cheese fondue, dessert, private/romantic

Cons: price, main meal, self serve

This restaurant is a unique fondue style establishment. The menu features 4 different types of broths to choose from for cooking your food at your table. The first course consists of vegetables and apples with a cheese fondue. The main course allows for different combinations of meats, poultry, and fish. The dessert menu consists of different fruits and cakes with a choice of chocolate fondue. The prices are around the high average but the experience is definately unique!

If you are looking for something out of the ordinary, extra-special or just plain different - this is it. I have never had bad service here and the food is abolutely fabulous. You cook your meat and vegetables yourself right there at the table in either oil or broth (several different ones to choose from) and have many different sauces for dipping to go with it. If you want to make it really good, get the cheese foundue appetizer and/or the chocolate fondue dessert.
Just make sure you have plenty of time and are hungry

The dessert was good and so was the cheese fondue. We ordered the meal with an array of different meats , practically a little of everything. I will sum this up pretty quick. The food tasted boiled after you cooked it , boiled chicken, shrimp , lobster - there was no real flavor other then the sauces they give you to dip into which I was not impressed by at all. I mean come on, BBQ and teriyaki sauce for chicken? they could have been more creative. You better be a good cook because its easy to over cook your food. I would go back for dessert only , for the price its MUCH more convenient to be waited on. Overall it was different and I would say go if you've never experienced fondue before. I still don't see why everyone makes reservations 2 months in advance to eat there.

Pros: Romantic, Good Dessert, Different

Cons: Food Flavor, Sauces, Reservations

Be prepared - it takes an entire evening to dine and you DO cook the meal yourself - that IS the fondue concept. Some consider that a "con" but I love it.

The food is very tasty. The down side? Service can vary. Sometimes, it is EXCELLENT. Other times, it is delivered by young servers who don't come across at the level of service you would want for the atmosphere. 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.

Service is never bad, romance level is VERY high - if you have the money to spend, you should definitely go!

I've been to the Melting Pot and it is a really exciting place to go. It's a little pricey but well worth it.

Whether it's Valentines Day, her birthday or your anniversary, you can't and WILL NOT go wrong by taking that someone special to the Melting Pot. Yes, you will pay a little more but the overall experience is well worth the extra $$$ you'll spend. Make sure to save room for dessert.
