    I'm a fan of "Hot Pot" which is similar to this place's "cook your own food in a boiling pot" service style. Also love wine and when I walked in for the first time things looked promising. Two hours later I was exhausted, frustrated and hungry as I paid our $180 and left never to return. The wait staff was nice, but the "sales pitch" method of racing through the process and the TINY portions of "NY Strip" (2 oz worth isn't a strip-- its "parts" of some cut but it is not a strip steak which for $94 a couple I at LEAST expect ONE of WHAT we ordered). The desert is melted chocolate and so yes, that was good but I'd rather get a "dinner" (for dinner) than what would be called an appetizer by most sane people. When I confronted the manager on this he said that wasn't "how they did tings" and I told him he needed to put what he lists in his menu ON the plate. Then the server is making apologies and the drama never ended. My wife and I sat there asking ourselves how the place stayed in business and "art food" is one thing, but when I go to an "art food" restaurant I know what to expect and the steak will still be an ACTUAL steak (even if its small-- but it will ALWAYS be more than 2 oz and it will be ONE for each person). For $95 a plate for two (with four simple courses) I'd expect what's on the menu to be served and except for the lobster tails (also good) there needed to be more than five smaller shrimp, 2 oz of (tough) beef and 2 oz of chicken and four small medalions of sausage (3 oz). Main point: if they put another $6 worth of product (their cost) on the plate, got some fresh bread and didn't argue with common sense when you ask where the dinner went-- the place might have a chance-- but with the price tag needs to come the goods and Melting Pot dropped the ball on a night we had high hopes for a nice evening out.

    I Ate:

    • The #3 four course : Lobster, shrimp, chicken and (not) NY Strip for 2 ($94)
    • Wine : Good Selection, pricing a bit high ($1)
