I just visited this restaurant for the first time. I had heard so much about it that we decided to go there for the Valentine's Day special. The drinks were superb, the employee...

The waitstaff in this chain outlet will try hard to sell you up to the feast, but instead have the cheese fondue appetizer and the salad, skip the main course, which is short on b...

Just hype... 2/4/2007

I just arrived back home from The Melting Pot... Not impressed. I was tricked by my wife into going. Now, I'm usually pretty cultured, but I wasn't totally aware of what fondue fully meant - I thought it was a big bowl of cheese. I was partly right I suppose. So here's the full disclosure: First and foremost, if you're with your lady or fella, and you're planning on a full 3 course meal, prepare yourself for the bill. I just dropped $120.00 (remember that figure). So you're sitting in the dark (a little exaggeration) at a table with, essentially, a stove built into the center. So then you pick the type of cheese fondue, entrée, and dessert you want. It's cheaper to agree on the selections and do one of the package deals, so beware if you have different tastes. So the waiter comes out with some the ingredients of the cheese dip (hey that's what it is) and piles it into the pot, turns on the burner and soon you have melted cheese. You're given a little bowl of bread cubes, apples and veggies to dip with a pitchfork (research the etiquette on its use prior) into the cheese. So, yeah, yum - cheese dip - impressive? No. Then the entrée. We did the "fusion" meal. This came with some steak, chicken, shrimp and lobster. That sounded excellent at the time. Then my wife's trickery became evident. The waiter brought out a different pot, this time filled with butter; this was followed by our meat - in it's raw form. Now sure, you're saying, "Oh! That's different," yeah it is. But for $86, I expect my food to be prepared for me. That's the reason I go to a restaurant. If I wanted to cook my own food...I'd buy the meat...and stay at home. So the next 1 1/2 hours was spent sticking my raw meat into this pot - frying it - then timing it - then pulling it out to check to see if it was cooked, rinse and repeat. Then came dessert. And to keep up with the ridiculous novelty, the waiter throws a pot of chocolate with some peanut butter on the burner. Gives us a plate of marshmallows, cheesecake (1 slice to fight over), and assorted fruits. This part was okay - certainly not worth the price however. So essentially you're paying for a novelty and some dim lighting because the food is average (could have had equally tasty food at a banquet/potluck) and the service is average. The restaurant simply provides you with groceries and a dish washing service. Very unimpressed. This place is hyped way too much. Save yourself the trouble and find a place that serves up cooked food. more

Love Fondue 4/17/2006

OK, one of the neatest places in St.Louis. Remember fondue? That's right people it is back! This is a very upscale fondue restaurant that serves anything from just appetizers, to a full three course meal. The dessert fondues are the best, with all different kinds of chocolate combinations like S'mores, and white chocolate with a little amaretto. The prices are high, but the service is good. And the location in the city is wonderful with lots of great shops around the restaurant. more

To die for! 4/14/2006

The melting pot is the best restaurant in St. Louis to go to if you're looking for a romantic evening and you love chocolate. It's a fondue restaurant so it's a little out of the ordinary but the atmosphere is quiet, it's dimly lit in some places to enhance the ambiance and the food is delicious! To save a few bucks (it is on the pricier end) just skip the entrée... appetizers, salad and desert will fill you up plus if you get the entrée then expect to stay for 2-2.5 hours as warned on the website. Oh and the chocolate... that's desert of course and it's just heavenly! more
