We tried the Melting Pot a week or so ago because we had never been and it sounded interesting. The first thing I noticed was the funny smell of the place...I later surmised it was the sterno keeping the fondues warm. Our server kept touching his face and mouth and then (inadvertantly, we hope) touching our food. It grossed us out, but we didn't know how to mention something tactfully, so we just boiled our food extra long. The food was all decent, but I'm not sure it was worth the $100 we spent there. If anything, go for a cheese fondue and dessert...not the entree fondues.
