Description: TOGETHER IS OUR SECRET INGREDIENT! The Melting Pot Restaurant is where fun is cooked up fondue style. Whether you’re celebrating a birthday, anniversary, long overdue date night or celebrating with a group. We are the premier fondue restaurant, centrally located on Westheimer, providing a casually elegant dining experience and an intimate atmosphere. The relaxing four-course experience begins with a cheese fondue prepared table side and fresh salads while your entrée pot heats up. You’ll simmer a variety of meats, seafood and vegetables in the cooking style of your choice. Each morsel is hot, fresh and delicious and all entrées are accompanied by an array of dipping sauces. Chocolate fondue is the finale, served with decadent dippers. Most make reservations for the four-course dining experience but more than a few have stopped by to satisfy that cheese fondue or chocolate craving. The Melting Pot also features a great wine list, specialty cocktails and martinis.

This place is a must in your trip to Houston. It is a perfect place for a delicious dining experience. Food is great. It consists of four courses: cheese fondue, salad, entree and chocolate fondue. You get the chance to cook your meal yourself on the table. Every time we go we get a great experience. Very friendly service. We go every Valentine Day’s dinner and on our anniversary. Today, we took our son to celebrate his 4th birthday. It is not really a kid friendly place especially because the table has a stove on it, but it was doable. Highly recommended. ( pictures are from September visit and valentine day dinner).

We went for my wife's birthday and had an fantastic time. The staff was great, loaded potatoes cheese dip was tasty and the cookies and cream chocolate dip was really good. We will be returning very soon.

We visited with another couple and it was a fun meal. Our Houston Restaurant Weeks Special included four courses. All the food is served uncooked and you cook your own in a common fondue pot. We each ordered our own meal, but had to agree on the cooking "method". Really there is only one method, boiling, you bet to select the cooking liquid. Our meal included a cheese appetizer (excellent), salad, main protein, and dessert (best).

I loved the melted chocolate & fruit dipping! The melted cheese is also very delicious

However, I didn’t enjoy grilling my own steak, and I didn’t find the meat tasty.

Generally, it was a good experience!

Thank you for dining with us - so happy to hear that you loved the cheese fondues and chocolate fondues.
Sounds like you got a sneak preview of our soon to be released grill cooking style. If that's not for you we have three others too choose from. Hope you will visit again soon.

One of my favorite places. It is very pricey but so very good. We always get the 4-course experience which includes your choice of a cheese fondue, salad, entree and the best part...chocolate fondue. I love the loaded baked potato cheese fondue. They give you veggies, bread and apples for dippers. My fav salad is the strawberry caprese (pictured). As far as chocolate you cannot go wrong with any but just had the cookies and cream fondue and it is now my new fav. The staff explains your dining experience so don't worry.
