The Melting Pot is a fondue restaurant, offering a range of fondue cooking styles as well as distinctive meals, salads, and amazing desserts.
It was simple to find parking because it was immediately close to the restaurant. The parking fee was ten dollars.
I booked reservations at 3pm and arrived around 10 minutes late, but they still weren’t ready for us. We had to wait around 10 minutes longer for a table to be cleared and cleaned.
There wasn’t much seating available near the front entry, but there weren’t many people there anyway.
To celebrate Valentine’s Day, I dined with my baby and cousin on a three-course fondue feast.
Our server greeted us and asked whether it was our first visit to the restaurant, which it was. The menu was a little perplexing, but he went on to break down what we were looking at on the menu so we could grasp it better.
There were three menus: the holiday special, the normal menu, and the kid’s menu were all available.
I noted that the kid’s menu didn’t really seem… childish. There were mostly only meat and seafood selections. My toddler doesn’t really eat any of it, so I inquired if they had any fries available; they did not.
The Melting Pot presented an incredible, participatory dining experience that converted moments into memories from the minute the first piece of bread was dipped into our cheese fondue.
Our server began by bringing us our drinks. I ordered a sweet tea, which is a popular drink known for being “hit or miss” in terms of sweetness. I had no complaints. My cousin ordered a water with lemon and I ordered my baby an apple juice that came in a cup with a lid and straw.
We were asked what style of cheese fondue we preferred because we were there for the Valentine’s Day special. It took us a minute to decide, but our server, whose name I wish I remembered, was really patient. I then inquired which option he would suggest, and he suggested that the cheddar cheese was the standard and most popular choice. That’s what we got.
Our cheese fondue was provided with bread, vegetables, and fruit on the side. I never thought about dipping a green apple in melted cheese, hehe. It tasted strange.
Then we had to decide which salad we wanted. We both ordered Caesar salads. It was served with no additional dressing to be added. I only like ranch on my salad so I waited to eat mine until I could request some to be brought to the table.
We were then asked what kind of chocolate we preferred. We went with the traditional milk chocolate.
It was my absolute favorite part of our lunch. I honestly believed the chocolate fondue order only included a side of strawberries. However, oh my goodness! Strawberries, bananas, brownies, marshmallows, cake slices, and waffle pieces were included. It was incredible! The warm melted chocolate was delicious.
We chose our favorite cheese fondue, salad, entrée, and chocolate for the 4-Course Experience, then prepared our food and savored sauces to enhance the flavor in every bite.
The “Melt Your Heart Petite Entrée” was an optional addition to the Valentine’s Day event special. It appeared to be a little taster lunch. It came with three pieces of chicken, three shrimp, and three pieces of steak. Some extras were also included, such as potatoes and broccoli, as well as a small selection of different sauces to try.
Instructions with appropriate cooking times for each item were supplied, as well as a disclosure regarding cooking safety at the table and how to avoid cross contamination.
