We love coming here. Our family makes it a tradition once a quarter. We love the Darien location. We’ve not been happy with our server. Second time we’ve had him and both times we felt rushed - hurry to take our order and then gives us the bill before we even begin desert! When we ask questions we get very dumbfounded look. We did complain and ask we do not get him again! Still recommend the location and restaurant!
Great for a special occasion. The food and drinks was great!
It was wonderful
First time there, service was excellent and fondue was delicious. Can’t wait to go back!!!!
My girlfriend and I have been to the Melting Pot many times, but I was a little disappointed by the Valentine's Day special. We usually split a single order since they have significant portions. However for the special, we each had to order our own which ended up being $189, quite pricy! In addition there was a very limited menu compared to what we usually choose from, a nightmare for a vegetarian picky eater like myself. Otherwise it was a great experience as always, the servers were all very friendly and the restaurant was very quiet. We will be back, just not for Valentine's Day.
Valentine’s Day was amazing me and my girlfriend loved it, it was very intimate and the service was incredible!
We had a reservation at 9pm, when we got there they said 9:15. Did not get seated until 9:20. Whats the point of making reservations for.
Fantastic service and a great meal!
The staff really made us feel special!
Brendan the waiter was awesome. Our hot plate didn’t get hot enough which is tricky when cooking shrimp and chicken. And the lights in the bathroom were completely covered in dust which doesn’t breed confidence.
Our host, Amen, was great and very fun to have! The drinks were great as well as the food. I am never disappointed when I come here. The Melting Pot - Darien has always been a family/friend favorite for years and they haven't disappointed us yet. Thank you again!
Enjoyed a great belated anniversary dinner with my wife at the Melting Potin Darien.
The wait staff was great and the fondue was really delicious.
All in all a great date night
It's a fun cold winter night with the family. The table in the back room wasn't great, but we made the reservation late. Ask for a booth in the main room.
Great service and food as always!
Brunch is the best!
A fun night out, but very very expensive for a ‘theme’ meal.
Special New Years date night! We always love melting pot ! The wine flights are amazing !!!
Plentiful options accompanied by generous portions and strong service make the Melting Pot an excellent value! Careful not to over order. The quantity of food is more than you might assume!
So good! Great end to 2019! Really enjoyed our dinner!
We went because we received a gift card for Christmas. We didn’t know all of the entree selections were to be boiled at the table. The food didn’t taste seasoned and by the time it was removed from the boiling chicken broth it was both odd and unappetizing. The service was great, but the price was a bit outrageous for the small pieces of food you’re served. The dessert portion was delightful and I would recommend the bananas foster to anyone going. I’m not unhappy I went, but I would be really upset if I had to pay for it without the gift card.
Great time! Fun atmosphere
Annual family dinner on Christmas Eve.
Our waiter Brandon was superb. The food was delicious. Great way to spend xmas eve
The Melting Pot always has good service. We have all been very happy with the food.
Made a reservation for my wife’s birthday. We were greeted by multiple servers who wished her a happy birthday. My wife was overly excited and happy with the overall outcome. I appreciate the workers who delivered that A+ service.
Another great dinner at the Darien Melting Pot!
Every time I go, I ask myself why I bother. I’ve never had a server here who didn’t have a terrible attitude.
You will always wait for a table, even if you have reservations and there are plenty of empty tables throughout the restaurant.
The portions have gotten smaller and the prices have gotten higher, and you can expect your hair and clothes to stink when you leave.
Our waiter Nick was excellent! Food is always good
We are so glad you enjoyed your server. Make sure to request him on your next visit : )
A very fun experience! Ordering the 4 course option is A LOT of food. Definitely worth it.
Ambient was perfect for a date night. Tables were very private, service and food were phenomenal.
It wasn’t our first visit to The Melting Pot. It is consistently great! We drive over a half hour to get there and it’s worth it!💞
We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your returning visit. Hope to see you again soon!
Always a great option for a special occasion.
Overall good experience. Had 2 pieces of inedible chicken and we were seated 30 minutes after our reservation time.
Was the 1st time I have been to a Melting Pot and it was just okay. I am glad I checked it off the list. Only ding to teh ambiance was every piece of flatware was bent including the spoons.
Their menu is a little confusing for the first time being there and the waiter was horrible at explaining anything. Ended up charging us DOUBLE for what we got because we added one thing but it- well whatever. Just be careful and concise when ordering. And the staff is very friendly our waiter was just a d*ck. And this part is my fault but I thought we'd get to dip our entire meal into cheese not just a small plate of crap bread and cold carrots and broccoli. That part was a huge let down. And the dessert was good. All in all it was meh. But we won't be going back there.
Excellent service. Family friendly. One of our favorites.
My wife and I went there for our 10th anniversary. The Melting pot staff were great, very attentive. They also gave us complimentary champagne and cheesecake with happy anniversary written on the plate. Several of the. Rad came by to wish us a happy anniversary. The food was great, and it gave us an opportunity to try some foods/styles that we don’t have regularly
The food was great and everyone was very friendly. There was even a magician who was quite good and came around to each of the tables. Our service was great initially however drastically changed at the entree course where we sat around for at least a half hour/forty five mins waiting for dessert. Overall, great experience.
Ordered a balloon with picture frame. They were supposed to take a picture for the frame but their camera wasnt working. Other than thar was great
It was my first time eating at the melting pot and my husband and I had a great time! The service was great! The food was great! We will be returning customers for sure!
We are so glad to hear that you enjoyed your experience with us!
