The Melting Pot of Albuquerque

Welcome to The Melting Pot of Albuquerque. We offer a truly unique dining experience created by the art of fondue.

The Melting Pot celebrates over 10 years of serving fondue in Albuquerque. A yearly recipient of Open Table Diner's Choice Award & ABQ The Mag's plus The Daily Lobo's "most romantic" restaurants in Albuquerque, The Melting Pot offers a unique, interactive, leisurely four-course dining experience.

Fondue at The Melting Pot can be enjoyed in a number of ways. Choose what is right for your occasion. Combine delicious cheese fondues prepared table side, fresh salads, scrumptious entrée, including your choice of seafood, steak, poultry, pasta and fresh v vegetables, and finish with a decadent chocolate fondue. We proudly offer gluten-free dining options for all four courses and can accommodate most food allergies as well.

The Melting Pot’s relaxed, leisurely dining experience sets it apart from other restaurants, giving you the gift of time to enjoy each other’s company. That’s not to say you can’t just pop in for a quick cheese or chocolate fondue if you’re in a hurry. But don’t take our word for it – come try the award-winning Melting Pot experience for yourself!

The Melting Pot is conveniently located in ABQ Uptown close to the Regal IMAX Theater and with over 1000 parking spaces and easy access to local hotels. So whether you are coming from just around the corner, Santa Fe or further away, we are that perfect location for any occasion. If it’s dinner before a show or chocolate after, a long, leisurely romantic night out, family fun or just an evening with friends, we look forward to seeing you soon and making it a Perfect Night Out.
