The Melting Pot 

Dining Description:

It's a chain with a local's feel and an expansive, quality wine list. The answer to all special-occasion needs, the fondue setup allows for jointly dipping breads and fruits into molten cheese (or chocolate), and fine meats and veggie hunks into boiling broths.

Fantastic fondue! Prices are though high so bring your walet and your credit cards too. Private settings that are comfortable, just hope the waitstaff doesn't forget about you once they put you in your cubby.

Stopped in on a Sunday (since Sonterra Grill was closed), my first time with fondue. I now understand why this fad was left in the 70's. Ordered the 2 person dinner with appetizer (@$98). The waitress was ok, but the food was just horrible and cheap! I can understand paying this price at The Summit, Craftwood, Carlos' Bistro.....since its skillfully prepared and presented with quality ingredients. The entire meal at The Pot (no pun intended)probably cost the restaurant $3.50 to buy and prepare, while being sold at $98 (people actually fall for this?).

Since I stated my first time at fondue I was a little unprepared for the entree portion. Does anyone else find it bad to cross-contaminate the fondue broth with raw seafood and chicken. I don't let raw chicken touch anything (except the sizzling pan, beautifully seasonsed of course) when I prepare it at home, why do it in an establishment?
