The server was very good but there was a party and it made the service very slow. Food good
Always fun for a special night
Good food but the experience is always enjoyable. We always enjoy going for our anniversary or for a time away from the kids.
Good, but Overpriced
We went out for our 1 year wedding anniversary, and at the last minute had to bring along our 9 month old daughter. When we arrived at the restaurant, the hostess went to find a high chair, but couldn't find one that had both clips. So, we had to sit with our daughter in the booth with us, which was rather uncomfortable for my wife (eventually her parents came to pick up the baby, which made the experience tons better). My wife ordered a sunshine sangria, which came in a glass smaller than her water glass and cost almost $10. She said that it wasn't worth the price. Anywhere else the maximum price would have been $8. The food was definitely good (we ordered the Alpine Classic cheese with the deluxe dippers plates, a terriyaki marinated sirloin to share, and pure dark chocolate fondue with one plate of deluxe dippers). However the sirloin was definitely the best part, and the food was slightly overpriced, much the same as the cocktail. Overall, for a dinner out for a special occasion, where one expects to splurge a little, this was a good choice. We would recommend going somewhere else for cocktails, or if you have to bring along a small child.
Tabitha was our waiter, she was amazing! She was helpful, friendly, attentive, and went above and beyond! We'll be asking for her everytime now!
The place and atmosphere are amazing! I have been a few times but it was the first time for my husband and daughter. The waitor explained everything very well. They loved it. The waitor was very nice, everyone helped out. Highly recommend!
Good food, very dissappointing service
We ate at the Melting Pot last Saturday for my son's birthday. The food was good, but the service was very dissappointing. Right after we were seated, a young man brought us water and dumped 3 full glasses into my husband's lap. He apologized, but then did nothing. The waiter came to the table to dry things off, but my husband had to ask for a towel and all he was given was a small rag they use for cleaning. No one asked if he was okay or needed anything. I think the waiter was embarrassed, because after that, he was never to be found. He didn't check on us and there was a lot of time wasted waiting for him to come back after each course and for our ticket. I at least expected someone from the management team to come by and apologize, offer my husband a drink or pay for his meal. The Melting Pot is a slow restaurant and he sat there soaking wet for 2-1/2 hours. Had we not been there for our son's birthday, we would have left. The basic common courtesy was missing. Dissappointing, especially from a nicer restaurant.
It was wonderful.
It was wonderful.
great service, but food lacking
While I have been to the Melting Pot before and been happy, this time unfortunately did not measure up. The service was great, but the entree course seemed to lack salt and seasoning. Not sure if it was the meat or the broth. I will return as I have had good experiences before, but I don't think my husband will as this was his first time eating here.
Great special occasion
Was a wonderful spot for a girls night out. Being on the river walk was great as we started the night with pedicures and finished with wine, chocolate, and cheese at The Melting Pot. Food was delishious, the staff was very fiendly and the wine was fantastic. Definitely my new favorite special occasion restaurant.
Enjoyable romantic dinnr
Cozy booth, served at your own pace. Romantic 2 hour experience.
A long evening with multiple courses
The Melting Pot is a fun evening out. It usually takes us 2 hours to do the 4 course dinner, and we always love it. The food is delicious, the service is great. It's a great way to enjoy some conversation over a slow-paced meal.
Great food, fantastic service, nice wine selections, good food options, well worth the cost and the leisurely two hour dinner.
Great staff and great time had by all!!
Everything was great... Staff pulled together a handwritten note of congrats for the wedding anniversary which was super nice. Great time had by all. We really love the place and hope to be back soon.
We had a great time at the melting pot, the people there were awesome and so nice! I would for sure recommend this for an awesome date night!
Fabulous evening with Friends!
We had a great time, it was fun and entertaining. My favorite was the teriyaki steak. We originally had a booth assigned but one from our party preferred a table which they graciously accommodated us. I was surprised at how busy the restaurant was which is always a good thing. We would certainly go back again!
This was our first trip there and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Service was a little slow at times, but we loved it anyway!!
We showed up a little early and still had very little wait and got a table early. The service was exceptional and our server was VERY friendly. We only had desert but it was very good and they were helpful with a recommendation on which desert would be best for us. An excellent experience!
Went to the Melting pot the evening before Valentine's day. They had a good selection of drinks. The ambiance was great for a date. The waitress was knowledgeable and had good suggestions. The cheese and chocolate portions were the best the hot pot was just so so.
I had not been to The Melting Pot since ...
I had not been to The Melting Pot since about 2008. I thought the food was okay (still not fond of boiling my meat) and the service was really great. However, they had the oddest music playing and it was loud. Being that it was Feb13 I thought they'd have romantic music or soft music for the ambience but nope. Again, it's not my favorite place to eat and the food is okay but that music just was awful and so loud. I had almost wished I had chosen another restaurant.
The Melting Pot
We made a 2pm reservation to celebrate Valentine's Day. We had been here a few times before and it had been outstanding. This time it was lacking. We were seated next to a family with kids which normally would've been ok but we didn't have our kids and were looking to have a romantic date. We asked for a more private table and were told there were none, even though several sat open the whole 2 hours we were there. The music was loud and not to my taste. I know it was during the day and that was probably typical but I just wish it being VDay weekend they would've tried to create a more romantic atmosphere all day. Our food was great though.
This is our 6th time here over the past 10 years. It is a bit pricey but well worth it for a romantic/special time. We have always enjoyed our meal and service. The server we had this time was a bit slow and we actually ran out of the meat fondue oil. She was so late at returning to our table to place the ingredients into the pot that the oil was more than 3/4 gone and she never refilled it. We could not cook the very last of our meat. Very disappointing and we should have said something, but did not. This was a valentine treat for us. However, I will say, WE WILL BE BACK. One poor service does not make for a bad restaurant to return to.
Our server on Saturday afternoon was amazing. She was attentive, nice, and had great tips for dipping the food. If we could remember her name, we would request her again. My husband and I love to get away to the melting pot for a nice adult meal alone-which with 3 kids ages four and under doesn't happen very often. The food, as always, was delicious. However, we were sat at the front of the restaurant so the noise level was loud with people waiting for their tables in the lobby. Every time someone opened the door a cold gust of air would come right my way. The chilly air and noise level did not make for the most romantic of Valentine celebrations but our server and the food helped make up for that.
Excellent overall experience
Happy with the food and service, great atmosphere for either groups or a sentimental date. Exciting to try something different than just a normal restaurant!
Celebrated Valentine's early and was very nice
One thing, restaurant was over booked and we ended up having to wait 20-30 for a table....
EXTREMELY SMALL portions!!!!! Especially for the price

We had a question about our burner functioning properly. Management's response was very inappropriate toward my wife.
Melting Pot is a great choice for a unique dinning experience. There are a large variety of choices on the menu for the appetizer, salad, main course and dessert courses. Makes a great choice for a special occasion.
If its not on your bucket list, add it now!
Superb dining at a reasonable cost. The melting pot is a scene out of a romantic comedy where a couple dines very elegantly and has a marvelous time. The staff are all highly knowledgeable and super friendly. The location in Tulsa is a scene from a one of a kind painting in a museum. The food is top notch. There is no required attire to attend, but you would want to put on your best slacks to devour this decadent spread. Personally I am the furthest from a vegetarian so I had my reservations about dining here but after getting my belly quite full of the most prime of meats my reservations were not needed. Add the melting pot to your bucket list and place it towards the top or next in line, it's a must try.
first time here, I found it to be very expensive.
Our server was great and knowledgeable. My only suggestion would be to offer "specials" a little more frequently. This was my first time here. I found it a little pricey for the amount of food. I realize that this is a "dining experience" but food wise I could get steak and lobster at outback steak house for half of the price.
A friend and I decided to take advantage of the half price happy hour. Cheese and chocolate ended up costing around $10 each, awesome!
Perfect Evening with a Friend
This was my second time having dinner at TMP and, again, it did not disappoint! Brought a good friend for a girl's weekend in Tulsa and decided to eat here. Requested my previous EXCELLENT server, Max! he is spectacular!! The price, quality, quantity and atmosphere is great for anyone!
Family Food Fun
We Decided to take our 3 kids to the Melting Pot for a Special Dinner. Our Waitress Kelsie , Made it a Special Event for them, Explained everything , how and why she was using the Food and the ingredients. Told then Really Corny Cheese Jokes, and helped us make this a Special Night out for the Family. the Cheese Course was Awesome, and the Salad was even worth Going back for, and that's saying something about Salad, in my book. The Entree was fun and really tasty. But the Chocolate Dessert, we had Dark Chocolate and the Flaming Turtle. I would do this again.
Excellent service, delicious food, too pricy.
Our server (Caitlin?) was attentive and obviously experienced at her job but not pushy. We thought she was delightful. We went in for happy hour cheese and chocolate but ended up ordering full meals. This type of dining is best for those who can spare a couple of hours because it's a long experience, maybe too long. We skipped on tea or soft drinks because the price is truly exorbitant. The food is delicious and while not as outrageously priced as the drinks, still a bit much. We liked it enough to go again, but only for happy hour.
We had a wonderful experience the food was great, service was prompt, very romantic setting . Overall a fabulous night.

Great atmosphere, great food, great service.
we loved our first experience at The Melting Pot!
We enjoyed our first experience, however we took the time to find a sitter for our child so we could have adult time the table next to us was not as thoughtful. Giving it was our first experience we didn't know it was about 2.5 hours for the 4 coursess. So for that 2.5 hours we got the pleasure of listening to a baby cry from the table next to us. Food was great and the service was wonderful.
Recommend for dessert only
This was our first trip to The Melting Pot. I surprised my husband and kids for NYE. Our server was amazing. Very friendly and wonderful at explaining everything. The food was OK at best. Noone at the table liked the cheese. I believe it is the base that has a very strong flavor. I think the server said it was beer based. Even my husband who is an avid beer drinker did not love the flavor of the cheese. The meat was fun to cook but again only average in taste. Our server recommended the vegetable base since it was our first time and it seemed to take away any flavors the meat had been flavored with. The desserts were by far the best. They were delicious with or without the dip. We would have liked another option of chocolate that did not include the PB as we felt the peanut butter overpowered everything else. We were told we could only choose between white chocolate and the pb chocolate. It was a very fun experience although we had a group of young people behind us who used very bad language and we had our kids with us. But our bill was well over $250 for four and that is way too much for food that is so so. I have already told everyone who saw our posts on FB that we recommend eating somewhere the food is better and coming for dessert and the experience. I am very sorry not to give a better review but that is our honest opinion. Thank you.

We were so excited to celebrate NYE at one of our favorite places the Melting Pot! We were seated quickly and the hostess was wonderful. Things quickly went downhill when we met our waiter though..... His name was Logan. He was unfriendly, unfocused, unpleasant, and the service was just terrible. He made half of our cheese fondue and then just left? Not sure if he forgot he didn't finish making it or what but we waited about 10 minutes and then just made it on our own. Then he went who knows where for the next 20 minutes. The manager came and asked if our server had taken our salad orders yet. We informed him he had not. So the manager put our salad orders in for us. Then our waiter reappeared to take our dinner orders. When he arrived wayyyyyyyyyyyy later with our food, parts of it were missing. He somehow just forgot the chicken?! He brought us that after I asked him to. Later on in the evening ( about 3 hours later) he came to take our dessert orders. I asked where the pound cake was. He said he didn't know. I asked him to check. He said he would. He then came back 10 minutes later and said they are out of bread. At this point I was so frustrated I went to get the manager..... He apologized about our experience being so bad. He said it was cuz they were busy. I believe it was not the volume of people but the lack of good service. Next time I come back I will be requesting Tabitha for sure! This used to be my favorite place to come for special nights ,but I honestly have no desire to return anytime soon after our last visit.
Being our first time there we had a wonderful time
The food atmosphere and service we very enjoyable. Our waitress was very personable. I thoroughly enjoyed our times out. We might try again sometime, but it wont be often due to the expense. I understand the reason fro the prices. The service was excellent!
