Very Unique Experience. As previous reviews that had something negative to say, the only accurate one thus far would be that this is an experience that take 2 1/2 - 3 hours to enjoy. I would not recommend taking small children, not that I dislike small children ( I have 3 of my own) it is an atmosphere that would be enjoyed better by a couple or group of friends. My husband and I went for my birthday and were sat in a booth behind a wall. It was very cozy and nice and neither of us expected that. The service was friendly and helpful with the menu. We ordered the big night out and the amount if food that was given was well worth it. The best parts were the first course cheese fondue and the last course chocolate desert fondue. The second meat course was also very good and I didnt expect to only have to cook the meat for 2-3 min each peice, I thought it would have to be longer. The next time I would go I would probably go just for the cheese and desert. It is a different and unique experience, I'm glad we went. I would definitley go again on another special occassion.
What a Big Night Out. The Melting Pot Exceeded any preconceived expectation or notion that I had about fondue dining. The most surprising part of the meal to me was the amount of food given for two people dining. They without a doubt give you every bit of your monies worth. As full as I was at the end all I could think about was some how finding a way for just a little bit more? Needless to say my wife and I will be regulars from here on out. I have since told all my friends and family to try The Melting Pot out as soon as possible.
Great Place. recently dined here with my boyfriend and we loved it!! Great food and great atmosphere!!
Recently dined with a group of friends, it was partners bday so we decided to do something different. The Melting P*t staff did a great job of making us feel welcome and the food was amazing.
It was a refreshing change of pace from your typical establsihment in our fine city.
Romantic and fun. I recently dined at the Melting P*t with my girlfriend, it was our anniversary and I wanted to make the night really special for her. They definately made that happen, I ordered flowers for the table and they were awesome, they even put a card out for us. Our server Carolyn was great she was friendly and knew a lot about the menu. Kudos to the managers and staff for making a special night even more special than we had anticipated.
At the Melting Pot we value the opinions of our guests and are always delighted to learn when we exceed the expectations of those who dine. We also would like to thank you for taking the time to look further into our restaurant and what our guests are saying. We are offering FREE CHOCOLATE FONDUE to those who print off a copy of this review when purchasing a Big Night Out here in our Pittsburgh location. Thank you for looking to "dip into something different" and we hope to see you soon. The Pittsburgh Melting Pot Management Team
We love it!. It is better to go here when they aren't busy like early on a saturday on a sunday or during the week. You get a better experience! We love the food. it is a nice treat once in a while...it is a little pricy but it is a nice place to go once in a while!
Wonderful evening out!. We just recently dined at The Pittsburgh MeltingPot to celebrate our anniversary around the Valentine's Holiday. I must say that the staff did a great job and provided outstanding service. It was our first time as it had been somewhere my wife had been wanting to dine for a while. They had roses on the table and arranged for a relatively private table. It was truly a different dining experience that we enjoyed. This is definately an experience restaurant and they do a great job. Everything was delicious and we had an intimate and relaxed dinner. I highly recommend and will return. Keep in mind everything is done tableside and you actually cook your food at the table. Perhaps this is a suprise to some but I guess not much has changed since the 70's when we used to enjoy it. For a fun and intimate evening out we highly recommend. Make sure you bring your credit card because it is a bit expensive but worth it for a great evening to catch up.
Never again!. Let me tell you that is was not a good dining experience. The service was not too bad but other than that pretty terrible. First off it was on V-day and unaware to me was the fact that you have vertually no choice in menu selection. It was $69.00 a person for an appetizer (scallops - boyfriend doesn't like seafood and they were terrible), a cheese fondue (out of all the awesome ones listed on their site only 3 were available), a salad (again 3 choices), an entree ( we had to share this platter of bite sized meats which came out raw and had to be cooked by US in boiling brothey water), and last was the choc. fondue which I swear tasted just like hersey's syrup. So I guess if you like to be told what to eat, enjoy boiled meats incl. broth flavored lobster, and wanna leave with a $200.00 dollar bill for two then this is your place. Otherwise I suggest not going at all, at least not on a holiday.
Great place to enjoy a 'different' eating experience.. My husband and I went here for our anniversary and they treated us great. Very friendly waiter. Even though it was a Saturday night, we did not have to wait long for our table and it was packed! Highly recommend reservations. We enjoyed doing something 'different' by cooking tabletop. It was a little pricey but worth it.
