Austin >Melting Pot Restaurant
LOVE IT!! Fun, Romantic & Yummy. My hubby & I went for our Anniversary. They put us in a very romantic corner booth area with no one around. We had a wonderful dinner and I don't have the words for the dessert - MY, MY!! They brought us a complimentary glass of Champagne with strawberries in honor of our Anniversary. Service was incredible, above and beyond to make our evening special. Thank You!!
I was really excited to go to the Melting Pot for date night. When we walked in, I noticed a weird, dirty mop type smell, even though the decor was new & stylish.
The traditional Swiss cheese fondue was good. They wouldn't let us order cheese fondue for one which I thought was cheesy (we wanted to save room for choc. fondue for dessert).
Entrees came with a nice salad. My husband commented that he was not grooving on having "boiled meat" for dinner. They did offer a variety of dipping sauces to try to compensate for the blandness of the food. Even though we ordered the coq au vin (burgundy, garlic, spices) cooking broth, the food was bland. Serving size was large though.
One of the fondues must have been really oily because now my face is all broken out like a teenager
Next time (if there is a next time), I'll just order cheese fondue, a salad, dessert & skip the entrees.
Dessert to die for!. This restaurant is a great place to go with a group. The cheese and chocolate are the best. I could skip the main entree all together and just go for appetizers and dessert. The oils for cooking the meat are not that great, but the other food items make up for that bigtime.
Wonderful atmosphere, service and food. A wonderful place for a romantic dinner, a business meeting, or a night out with friends. The service is excellent, the food outstanding and the atmosphere is sophisticated without being stuff. You will not be disappointed!
Best Place for a fun, relaxing meal. I have been to the restaurant with other couples and with the girls and have truly enjoyed both experiences. The whole concept of the meal allows for people to truly engage in coversation as you enjoy the different courses together. Our server had a great knowledge of wine and did a nice job of helping us select a meal well suited to our tastes. I personally enjoy the cheese course and highly recommend the California salad. If the Bananas Foster is available do not miss it! Overall, we have had great meals there with great service. I would recommend it to anyone.
Wonderful atmosphere, food & service. Everything from the servers to the food was wonderful, simply said. I expected the price to be much higher, but I was surprised when we received our check. The food selection was wide and exotic. My server had an incredible sense of humor. I felt like I was the only person dining that night. They were prompt and treated me like royalty. I would highly recommend the location on 3rd street to anyone who values customer service, class and good food. Oh, and the desert was to die for... absolutely fabulous.
Relaxing atmosphere, great food and service. I enjoyed more than just a meal when I visited The MeltingPot - it truly was an experience just like they mention in their advertisement. How nice to linger over each course in these days of hectic schedules and rushed dinners - my friends and I enjoyed relaxing conversation and didn?t feel we were being hurried to finish. The presentation of the meal was impressive, and we were all very pleased with the service we received and the attention to detail starting with the introduction to fondue dining and review of the menu through to the last swipe of rich dark chocolate from the dessert fondue. I can?t wait to get back for my next MeltingPot experience!
Perfect for Moms Night Out. Recently went here for Moms Night Out. Some of us had been here before and some had not. Some were vegetarians and others were not. This was a perfect restaurant choice for us because we had a huge selection of food to choose from to accomodate everyone's needs and the ambiance was very relaxing for a group of stay-at-home moms. We loved the our servers who made sure that our one night out was very enjoyable and yummy! You never feel rushed here and are encouraged to take your time and enjoy the food. Of course, the dessert is incredible which was our favorite part. I have been here many times and I would recommend it to anyone looking for something different, fun, relaxing, and delicious!
Amazing Food, Great Atmosphere, Best Mojitos in AUSTIN!!!. This is an absolutely wonderful idea for a restaurant. The atmosphere is just perfect for downtown austin. My fiance and I had our first date here, and we just recently celebrated our engagement at the there. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Its a very interactive dinner that is just mouth-watering with every bite. Of course the chocolate is the best part about the dinner, but the cheese, salad, and entre were also just as good. I will say that they make the BEST Mojitos in the Austin area!! By far, this is my favorite place to eat in downtown Austin!! This is a must for Austinites and visitors to experience!!
Best downtown restaurant!. I originally tried MeltingPot out on a Monday Ladies Night and had a blast with my girlfriends. The waiters/waitresses, fantastic food and great wine list always keep us entertained and coming back. Since then my boyfriend and I go quite a bit for dinner because it gives us the opportunity to have a wide pallet of meats/fishes/veges for dinner. No matter if we get a private booth or sit in the main dining area, we always enjoy the ambiance. When our families traveled to Austin for a special event, it was an easy decision for us to chose MeltingPot for the big dinner. The BEST part was they take reservations on weekends! We had a large party and we were so impressed by how attentive they were to us. The waiter was very patient with us as 8 of the guests had never been to anything like the MeltingPot and had numerous questions (I think he probably explained the process 8 individual times, but he never got frustrated). It was one of the best large dinners out I have had with friends/family and everyone was VERY pleased with all of the four courses (especially since we got to try so many with the larger group).
