My wife and I have visited several Melting Pot restaurants. We moved here from South Florida and they have one in every major area. This location here in Orlando is the absolute best one we have ever been to! From our first visit we noticed how well everyone here works together! We are always impressed by the consistency and attention to detail. I say without question that Karlee is an exceptional server. My wife and I have a complicated order due to food allergies and personal preferences, and she is always able to perfectly deliver with her terrific, welcoming personality. Karlee really makes us feel like family, and elevates the entire experience to another level! As soon as we leave, we're already making plans to come back. Thanks again to Karlee and all of the wonderful people at this location for making every visit a memorable one!

I had not been to a Melting Pot in over a decade, probably. I don't know why, really. There aren't that many in the area I live and so very limited chances to visit. My mother in law decided to have her birthday dinner here, so we made a reservation as a party of 12. Overall the service was really great. Nate was our server and he was very friendly and knowledgeable. I guess I had forgotten that the whole experience is you cooking the meal yourself, so that was kinda interesting to do. My in laws, who are pros that the Melting Pot, suggested some things, but we decided to go our own way and in the end it wasn't the best choice. The cheese we ordered (brie/bacon with the charcuterie) was just ok. The beer cheese cheddar was by far much better, and much less expensive. For our meal we ordered 4 different meats: the honey duck, the shrimp, the garlic pepper sirloin and the teriyaki sirloin. The duck was not good... probably because I have no idea how to cook duck in hot oil. The shrimp we overcooked so it was just ok. The steak was phenomenal though. We should've gone with the meat lovers option (like my in-laws did, lol). Finally we chose the chocolate, we ended up choosing the caramel toffee crunch option. So good! Can't go wrong with milk chocolate and heath bars. Would I go back? Not on my own. I can see the appeal of The Melting Pot for some people, the novelty of cooking your own food, I totally get it. But for the expense, and how I am personally... it's not for me. My in laws and my boyfriend love it there so I'll be back to celebrate them! Next time I know what to order: cheddar cheese, meat lovers, chocolate toffee. Lol. I have to shout out the Yelp check in because six chocolate covered strawberries was awesome to get after dinner!

Great date night spot in Orlando. Been to many melting pots before. This chain never let's me down. All kinds of good melting cheeses and chocolates. 2 thumbs up to the manager too. Very nice guy.

We had the magical dinning plan and it was fantastic, surprisingly cheap. we also got the Orlando Wine Flight so we could taste a few of the wines from our area and they too were fantastic! ill definitely be dinning here again.

This location is always amazing! Went for my first time a couple years ago and again this weekend, each time just as good! Staff is professional and accommodating and the food is delicious!!

We went with another couple to try the magical dining menu. For appetizer we tried the cheddar cheese fondue; delicious! It came with a variety of breads, vegetables and apples. The for the entree I tried the classic one which in my opinion is one of the best because you can try steak, chicken, pork and shrimp. My husband and my friend's husband tried the steak lover's and my friend ordered the vegetarian plate. We ordered the Caribbean mojo to cook our entrees, sooo good! Flavorful broth with cilantro, garlic and citrus flavors; delicious! We had so much fun cooking our food! Then for dessert we tried the turtle fondue, divine! It came with strawberries, pound cake, rice crispies treats, brownies, blondies and marshmallows divine too! Nice and romantic atmosphere; Don't forget to check I'm with your Yelp app! You get a box of chocolate covered strawberries with the purchase of 40 dollars or more. Nice place to go for special occasions.

Absolutely delicious! Everything is organized from reservations to course presentation. Emily our server is very knowledgeable, helpful and absolutely pleasant. We visited during Visit Orlando's Magical Dining month. The atmosphere was relaxed and intimate...a little dark for my liking but it was nice. Our meal consisted of a 3 course situation starting with cheese and ended with chocolate! Lots of things to dip. We were lucky enough to be seated at a table with double warm surfaces -definitely made it easier to share each other's selections. The cool thing about MP participating with Magical Dining is they have menu selections to highlight their best dishes. The only feedback I would give is in regards to reserving a table. It was a bit of an issue. Could be due to the months event. I'll let it slide hopefully my reservation experience will be better in the future. I highly suggest you try Melting Pot. It's just enough and a lot

I went here for the first time with a few friends, for a birthday... It was a great time, the drinks there were awesome, and the overall ambience I was in love with. Then came the food, the food was great, well at least the appetizer part. Then everyone's maincourse came out, and finally The end, which was one of the most flavorful parts. Also our server was awesome, she checked on us frequently and made sure we had everything we needed. Overall I decided to give this restaurant a four-star, I wasn't in love with fondue in the first place, and the restaurant definitely didn't ashore me of that feeling either. However they were very professional, and made the birthday feel that much special for my friend.

We celebrated my father in laws birthday here last night and it was great. Our server Leo was amazing and patient with us as most of the people in our party had not been there before. He went through the entire menu and explained how it all worked. I am very picky about food but everything we chose was amazing. I will definitely be going back there again!!

Absolutely great place. Our waiter was Jacob and did a fantastic job. The manager Brian made sure we we're accommodated and helped. They made our 3rd anniversary something very special. I will be recommending to friends and family for years to come. (Also the food was quite heavenly)

Amazing restaurant with really nice and extremely we mannered staff. My fiancee has a dairy allergy, and they are super attentive to makes sure all her food items were free of dairy. One time we went and they messed some things up slightly, the manager comped our alcoholic drinks as a courtesy. Fantastic date place!

Absolutely loved this place!! The food, service, and experience was absolutely amazing! Went here for our anniversary and the GM personally came to our table to wish us and even gave us a little hand written anniversary card! Our waiter (Austin?, can't remember) was so much fun and didn't mind me asking questions as it was my first time doing fondue. It's a hidden gem in Orlando that I wish more people knew about!

A little taste of Switzerland, as long as you've never been there. Look, if you're expecting the same flavors in your fondue like what you had the last time you were in Zurich, you'll be disappointed. Don't even think about coming here.

Came in for dessert around 9pm with a group of friends. Dessert was amazing but the server Chadwick was horrendous! He was so rude and seemed to take serving us as an inconvenience! Once we told him we were just here for dessert he treated us like we were a bother. He brought the check as soon as he dropped the dessert. A few mins into us enjoying our dessert he came over to check if we paid and when say we hadn't yet he actually handed us a pen! That is so incredibly rude! Update: spoke to Thomas while we were leaving and expressed our frustrations. He offered to have us come back for some dessert on him. After, some reluctance we accepted and hopefully the experience will be much better!

Fabulous meal, quite pricey but well worth it. Cheese and chocolate fondues. At your table cooking and a great array of cocktails. Restaurant was clean and service excellent. Highly recommended.

I must confess. I have never been to The Melting Pot and surprisingly my husband hasn't either. I've heard so many wonderful comments over the years and I'm sad it has taken me this long to try it. My husband and I stopped in for the first night of Magical Dining. If you don't know what this is, it's a very large list of restaurants who offer 3 course meals at $35 pp through Sept. - and these are nice restaurants where you can easily spend way more per person. The Melting Pot Orlando is part of the list so we decided on a whim to give it a try. My husband maybe had some preconceived notions and therefore protested, but I stood firm in my decision. Our waitress, Kaylin, was exceptional. Offered many suggestions and was funny too. I ordered the Asian pear martini and oh my it was fabulous. Sweet, so if you don't like sweet look for something else. The Magical Dining menu allowed us to choose from 3 of their cheeses to start. We chose the Wisconsin cheddar, but the Brie and bacon definitely caught my eye. It comes with a variety of breads, veggies and apple slices. We finished with a little cheese leftover and Kaylin offered to bring us more bread to use up the rest of the cheese. This was awesome and totally unexpected. For our entree my husband chose the classic which included a few steaks as well as chicken and shrimp. I chose the steak lover option. We both really enjoyed the garlic pepper steak. We were also able to choose from 3 broths so we went with the coq au vin - a burgundy wine with mushrooms, garlic and scallions. The 6 dipping sauces that accompanied the entree were all delicious with my favorites being the horseradish, cream cheese mixture and curry sauces. Wow my mouth is watering right now as I think about them. Lastly for dessert we were able to choose any of the chocolate fondues. We went with the cookies and cream which came flambéed. Again, we had left over chocolate and Kaylin brought us some extra strawberries to enjoy. The dining experience was exceptional and the customer service equally matched. We were blown away and my husband left saying I can't believe all of the flavors, that was amazing. Needless to say we will be back.

One of our favorite places to go for a special night! Always nice, always romantic and always fun! Some times we come for the full experience and sometimes just for dessert.The food has always been good. The servers are attentive, friendly and helpful. The manager always stops by to say hello and make sure everything is alright.

Went here for my daughters birthday and was more than we could expect. We chose this restaurant bc it was very interactive for the whole family and it sure was... we were a group of 10 and got to try a little bit of everything! We all left pleased and wanting to come back. Our server was very patient and attentive and so were the managers on duty, OUTSTANDING SERVICE! We will be back for magical dinning ;)

Best. Service. EVER! Manager Tom, and Jonah were the dynamic duo wait staff we never knew we could be blessed with. Grateful to have taken my sisters here to celebrate a birthday and leave with great memories. Cant wait to come back again,....for any reason!

We absolutely love The Melting Pot and always receive excellent service when we come here. It doesn’t look like much food until you start eating and realize you can’t finish. This is not a quick dining experience, so make sure you give yourself enough time to enjoy.

We always have a great time at this Melting Pot! The decor is modern and comfortable- and tonight we had an awesome server named Melissa. We will always request her from now on!

Delicious meal with Coty as our excellent server. We had a 2 flight course dinners and my kids split a four protein entree. The cheese dips, entree and chocolate fondue were all amazing. Try the milk chocolate with amaretto. Serving sizes were perfect as we shared all and all four were very satisfied. Melting Pot is a great place for some quality family time and great food!

Went to The Melting Pot. We had missed our reservation due to traffic but the hostess was so friendly and helpful that she seated us at the bar and got us a table within 10min despite the approximate 20min wait time she first gave us. Then our server Austin was fantastic. He worked so hard checking on us and making sure we enjoyed our time. I wasn’t a fan of the food at all, but the wild berry martini, plum sauce, and service were top. I only gave them 3 stars because of those three things not the food.
