    We had a nice evening. It has been a long time since we had been to the melting pot and enjoyed it very much. Not sure what didn’t feel “as wonderful” as I remembered it being, perhaps the renovations of the building? Idk. It was very good. Just not quite what I remembered of it. It is brighter and more open in the building now so while it was a nice atmosphere it didn’t feel as intimate as it used to. That may be part of it?

    Delicious food and excellent server. My only complaint is the price. I feel that the price has increased quite a bit while the portion sizes have gotten smaller. Don't get me wrong, I'll return, but definitely less often.

    Went for Father’s Day. It was a new experience for everyone. Probably a better experience just for two as it was overwhelming trying to cook for six people. The meats were seasoned well, nothing was bad. It just took a long time and was a lot of work. We never got a single water refill in the whole three hours. That was less than enjoyable. I don’t think any of us would return. Not a bad experience if you want to try a variety and you don’t really know how to cook yourself. It was just meh. Also need more air conditioning and venting.

    I love the cheese fondue. The service is good as the manager clearly explained the menu. I did not like chicken in the entree but shrimp and salmon are great.

    Food taste was excellent, but the portions were smaller than the last visit. We ran out of cheese before half of the dippers were gone. Also, the sharable drinks advertised on the Facebook page were not available.

    Great service. Very accommodating wait and management staff. Fine selection of wines. Numerous options as to how you want to cook your food. And the menu offering is diverse enough to fit everyone's pallet and/or dietary restrictions. I appreciated being able to preorder flowers and rose petals for the table which both surprised my bride and made the evening even more special.

    Went for my daughter’s birthday. 1 hour 15 minutes in we still did not have our entree- manager stopped by said he would make sure the food was right out- took 15 minutes longer. Two hours in we were just getting our dessert - but by this time her birthday was ruined- she had to miss out on other plans. Manager took 1/2 off bill- but overall VERY disappointed.

    The Melting Pot - CincinnatiResponded on May 26, 2022I'm sorry your most recent visit with us was disappointing and led to a birthday being ruined. Please reach out via email or phone so we can formally apologize and also make it up to you. cincinnatimelt@live.co m Ariel Arce Kitchen Manager

    2 couples were put at a table with one heating unit, basically forcing us to order the same cheese and dessert item.

    The Melting Pot - CincinnatiResponded on May 23, 2022CheriS, Very sorry that his was off putting for you. It is typical that this would be how a group of your size would be situated. In the future we can make accommodations with an additional cook top or place you at a table with a 2nd cook top if you indicate this at the time you place your reservation. I hope that this is encourages you to dine with us again in the future. Feel free to reach out with any additional feedback. Thanks, Jarred W. -GM cincinnatimelt@live.co m

    Going in you need to realize it will take a while to eat at this restaurant. The service people very helpful as we were dealing with a couple of allergies. The cost is on the higher end but the prep work for the food is intense.

    Celebrating Mother’s Day. Normally I have received excellent service at every melting pot I’ve been to including this one in Cincinnati. Today was not a good day. Wasn’t even that the servers were slammed, just poor service. Even the manager didn’t seem to really care. They gave us a discount on our chocolate but totally missed the point that service sucked!! Even had to wait after staff and manager were aware of the situation. I won’t be going back to THIS melting pot any time soon. Server - if only you would have taken care of the table of 2 moms out with their daughters and you would have had a 20-25% tip.

    Went there for my third anniversary with my girlfriend. This place was probably the nicest place we’ve ever had the pleasure of going. The food was great , we did the four course dinner for two and it was awesome , you get everything that you’d need for a great dinner. This was the first time we’ve ever done fondue and it was a cool experience from choosing from the menu to the custom cook styles and the experience of cooking the food yourself , it was very fun. This place is rather expensive so we’d probably come back under another special occasion but for anniversaries or birthdays , I’d say this place is a must try!

    The cheese fondue and s’mores dessert were both outstanding. The entrée was good but nothing special especially given the very high price. My family all agreed that we would definitely go back but next time we would just get the cheese fondue and dessert and skip the entrée.
