The Melting Pot, Rancho Cucamonga

The Melting Pot
12469 Foothill Blvd.
Rancho Cucamonga, CA 91739
*Only open after 5:00pm*
Type: Fondue

(Marlon) Wanna take your lady on a date? Take her to the Melting Pot. It has a good atmosphere. Kinda on the pricey side, but on special occasions you have to try this spot. The pricey side meaning for two people the bill was $100. Yea, I know, but you only live once. Anyway, we went to the one in Rancho because we just went out to Pasadena the night before and I didn't want to pay for parking.

Okay..... they have a different style of eating there. Heres how it works:

1st you select your "Cheese Fondue". The selections range from Fiesta Cheese for you spicy heads out there to Spinach Artichoke Cheese.
2nd you select your salad. They have a really good Spinach Mushroom Salad or Ceasar Salad.
3rd would be to select your Entree. This is where it gets pricey. For Jim they got a vegetarian plate which would include Tofu and Vegtables. But they also got Filet Mignon, Lobster Tails, Shrimp & Sirloin, Curry Chicken and more.
4th Select your Chocolate Fondue. We chose the All white chocolate which was really good. Too sweet for me, but Karen Loved it. Desserts came with fruit, cakes and brownies.

The best part of the experience is cooking your food. all of the entrees are provided raw and then you cook them in the fondue.

Hahaha. I have never talked to my girl so much ever. The whole experience minimal is 2 hours. So fellas be prepared.....j/k.

Enjoy. Peace

Sorry, but I thought this was the worst food ever! I am used to high quality food you get at places like Morton's Steakhouse. The fondue is a novel idea but the food they use to dip with is very, very poor quality. The chocolate fondue tasted like pure alcohol because they use it to light it up with and the service was HORRIBLE!

I went to the Melting Pot with my wife, and had an amazing experience. Yes, it is a long experience, but if you want fast food, go to In-N-Out (it’s right next door). We went with the recommendations that our waiter (Jake) made, and enjoyed everything thoroughly. Our cheese fondue was delicious. The salads were very fresh and tasted great. The entre consisted of filet mignon, shrimp, sirloin, lobster tail, and other meats as well as all the vegetables we could eat. Everything was very fresh, and high in quality. I have never received better service. The evening was topped off with chocolate fondue. The presentation of the "flaming turtle" was the awesome, and the taste was great. Everyone must try.
