The Melting Pot Restaurant

2646 Dupont Drive Irvine, CA 92612 | Irvine | 949-955-3242

Location Description:

At the Melting Pot, it's hard to eat a full meal, with dessert and drinks, without leaving at least a C-note behind, but the spent Franklin is worth it. Such a tab gets you a bowl of cheesy fondue, fine salad, French-influenced meat entrées, and a dessert that's flambéed in front of you.
