Fondue F.A.Q. (Frequently Asked Questions)

Q: What is fondue? What kind of food do you serve?
A: The word fondue literally means “to melt”. Fondue is a Swiss tradition where bread is dipped into a communal pot of melted cheese. At The Melting Pot, we serve a fondue dinner in four courses: cheese fondue, salads, entrée, and chocolate fondue. Cheese fondue is prepared tableside by your server and comes with bread, apples, and vegetables for dipping. We have a wide selection of salads and each guest may choose their own. Guests cook their own entrée course at the table while their server provides cooking instructions. All entrées are served with a fresh vegetable medley and dipping sauces. The final course is chocolate fondue. We melt milk, dark, and white chocolate in our kitchen and serve it with pound cake, marshmallows, strawberries, bananas, Rice Krispies treats, and brownies for dipping.

Q: Do you require reservations?
A: We will attempt to accommodate walk-in parties, but we HIGHLY recommend reservations. Please phone (908) 575-8010 after 12 pm daily to make a reservation or click the link to the right.

Q: How long does it take to eat?
A: Our typical experience lasts about an hour and forty-five minutes for a party of four to complete a four-course dinner. Parties of ten or more may take up to three or more hours.

Q: Is your restaurant child-friendly?
A: We can accommodate children of all ages. Most children over seven years old find the experience fun and exciting. Considerations for children are hot and sharp objects are on the table at all times and a four-course dinner for two takes about an hour and forty-five minutes. Please let us know when making your reservation if you will need a high chair or booster seat.
