Melting Pot for San Francisco [Moved from S.F. board]

Diagonally across from the Crowns Plaza Hotel...high up on the building at Powell is a banner proclaiming Melting Pot to open.......are there any others in the Bay Area? Is it a local or national chain.....and ultimately is it any good? Fondues and such

  1. I am pretty sure it is a chain, since i was at a conference at Sir Francis Drake and my peer and i kept looking out the window at the sign and fantasizing, and she is from Texas and said that she hoped it was the same chain of fondue places as the one in Dallas (?) if so, the here is the link:


    1. There is a Melting Pot location in Larkspur right by San Quentin. I haven't been, but I've heard it is just OK...

      1. Melting Pot is definitely a chain. I haven't been so I can't comment on the quality. If I want fondue, I head over to Matterhorn on Van Ness.

        1. It is a national chain. The quality is nothing special, and they are way, way overpriced. For what you pay for a dinner for four there, you can go out and get everything you need for a fondue dinner (including the fondue pot!) and still have a significant chunk of change left over.

          1. They have one in SJ. I heard it's not good, and I remember someone said fondue should only be done at home.
