My husband and I enjoyed our first date night since quarantine; we felt completely safe. We entered with our masks and then once at the table were able to remove our masks and enjoy a delicious dinner. Our waiter was great; he wore gloves and a mask the whole time.

Finally went out post COVID lockdown. Was tentative about what the experience would be like. It felt like TMP I was used to. Except the server wore a mask. Other than that, everything was just as it should have been. Food was great, service was quick. I felt very safe and comfortable. We had a great time!

I took my daughter for her 19th birthday. Neither of us had been to the Melting Pot before. The experience, fondues, entree, waiter (Jose) and ambiance were spectacular! You pay more for the experience than anything. We had a fabulous experience!!

Waiting tables is a tuff job, but we were at the restaurant 2.5 hrs- lots of time waiting on our server with large time gaps where he disappeared. He never showed to drop the check. The cheese and dessert fondue are always fun and usually good, the entree of meats usually leaves much to be desired. The filet was full of fat and tuff a leather. We go because the kids like it.

Great meal, as always. Arrangement of tables makes it feel very private but also hard to get the attention of a server. Don’t expect to be in and out in under an hour as the whole experience is designed for you to slowly enjoy the food and conversation. This is our go-to place for family celebrations.

It was our first time eating at The Melting Pot. Our waitress was very kind and knowledgeable about the menu. She explained how to order and gave great suggestions! She was also very attentive. The restaurant itself was a bit too dark for my liking, as it made things hard to read/see. But overall, we had a great time and will definitely be going back!

We chose The Melting Pot for our New Year's Eve reservations this year. We've been on New Year's Eve in the past but it's been a while. This year seemed to surpass our previous visit but maybe that's because we had a smaller group. The service was top-notch and the food was wonderful. Their New Year's Eve menu is prix fixe and their selection was fabulous this year. They had two different types of steak, lobster, shrimp, chicken and the standard vegetables. I was so full yet somehow found room for the dessert fondue which is always a great way to top off a meal at The Melting Pot.

I highly recommend dinner here any time of the year but it definitely earns 5 stars for special occasions!

This is the spot for your next special occasion. We were lucky to have had an experienced waiter. He w as attentive until dessert then it was hard to find him. I guess it got busy. However he did help us when it came time to get extras of bread etc.. ok experience.

We attended the Lunch with Santa event. Although Santa didn’t make his appearance to our table which was very disappointing. Out girls enjoyed themselves. They laughed, they giggled and ate until they couldn’t eat another bite. Our waiter was excellent! He was attentive but not intrusive. Engaging but not uncomfortable. Overall we had a memorable experience.

Another fantastic dinner at the Melting Pot-Gaithersburg. My husband and I were out with our son and his girlfriend. We surprised the youngsters with a teddy bear and balloons. The staff were able to surprise them and even added a cute detail...a plate decorated with "Happy Anniversary and Congrats on the win!" Their server (Miranda, I believe) was attentive to their conversation and add this to surprise. Both of our servers, Miranda and Rich, were attentive and very engaged in our dining experience. Both continually checked if we needed anything or how was it going. Both took excellent care of the two different tables! Great job!!

First we waited 15 minutes before anyone even came to the host stand to acknowledge us. Then when she finally did come we had to wait another 5 minutes for her to clean a table- and I did have a reservation. Once we were seated it was another 15 minutes before I had to flag someone down and ask if someone was assigned to our table, because no one had come to just take a drink order. Terrible first impression, and very frustrating when you have kids who are hungry.

It was a birthday. The food was good and the experience was fun, but I feel like the server untucked us to order way more than necessary. This was a birthday party for a 13 year old girl, with 6 children and 2 adults. The server kept saying 1 pot serves 2. Well with children, not so!! We ordered way more than necessary and left 2 full pots of cheese and chocolate on the table. Waste

The meal was way overpriced for what we got. Although the ambiance is nice, you leave smelling from all the smoke and/or aroma from other tables. Service was good, but not great. Given the price, I would have expected more all around. If we return, it definitely would not be for the full experience - I might just go for dessert, that was the best part.
