Diner Reviews
  • "The food at The Melting Pot was great and our server was very friendly. They kept our drinks filled and served our food in a timely manner. The atmosphere is very cozy."

  • "We enjoyed our Girls' Night and loved the experience. This was our fourth or fifth visit to this Melting Pot and it was one of the worst server experiences we have received. We did appreciate the fact she was training; however, that didn't excuse the extremely long wait times between our requests (drink refilled, more sauces, etc) and receiving the items. She even admitted to forgetting about the sauces, but I don't think she was slacking, just very busy. Overall great time but I think she was over filled on tables."

  • "My wife and I celebrated our anniversary at this restaurant for the first time. The service was impeccable, the food was delectable, and the ambiance was exquisite. Paul, our server, was incredibly helpful and made this a night to remember for years to come. This was the quietest, most romantic, and relaxing dining experience of my life. We will definitely return!! Thank you for making our anniversary special!"

  • "The Melting Pot offers a variety of fondue cheese, meats including lobster, shrimp and shrimp and the best part is the dessert! Try the "secret" dessert which is Banana Foster and you won't be able to stop eating it!"
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "The food was amazing but our waiter wasn't very good. He rarely checked on us, and we had other waiters stop and help us. Our waiter brought the dessert menu to the table and 45 minutes later he came back to see what dessert we wanted. By that time we were ready to go and ended up getting our dessert to go."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "Comfortable seating, perfect lighting, great service created a cozy ambiance to enjoy family and friends. We didnt feel rushed or unimportant to our service provider. Plenty of food that was fresh and delicious. Can't wait to visit again."

  • "My wife wanted to try this for our anniversary. The menu looked fantastic so we decided to give it a try. We made reservations and was surprised when we got there that we were seated immediately. That never happens on a Saturday night in Arlington reservations or not. The put us in a small corner away from the crowd which was nice but I felt a little cramped the whole time we were there. We had never been there so we had no idea what to expect. If you don't know, your server will prepare your cheese fondue and your desert if you get it but you have to cook your own main entree. It was ok but for $140 I will spend my money elsewhere next time. The food wasn't bad but just not to my personal liking."

  • "We have been going to the melting pot for almost my entire life and love the food and atmosphere. However, on our first visit to this particular melting pot we received what could only be described as terrible service. Our waitress, seemed more interested in hurrying us out of the restaurant than delivering good service. We were constantly badgered about decisions, our salads were brought out way too early and she rushed through everything. To top it off she would disappear for time on end (when our glasses were full), brought out our main course pot late and had to be told multiple times to bring us things (and didn't know what a wine list was). In summary: great food, terrible service!)"

  • "My wife and I were celebrating our 1 year anniversary. The food was excellent. It couldn't have been better. The food is actually portioned really well. I thought it wouldn't be enough but I was surprised at how full we both were."
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "Me and my wife absolutely love this place. We enjoy every aspect of the dining experience. From the knowledgeable waiters to the excellent food. The atmosphere is great for those seeking a recluse to enjoy a great meal. There are several great things about coming here but by far the dessert is the top.. Just make sure you dont get too full from the entire meal."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "I thought that. Y experience at the Melting Pot was great. It was something new for me to try and the ambience was perfect and romantic. The food was good as well. just can overall different experience that everyone should try at least once."

  • "My husband and kids enjoyed the experience. We will definitely go back for special occassions."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "This was my wife and I's first time visiting the "Melting Pot", it was highly recommended by friends and family. We had the duck and wild mushroom pasta in the coq au vin broth. Neither of us were impressed with atmosphere and the food lacked the "wow" factor you would expect from spending $100+ on a meal. I did't realize that we were going to have to actually cook our main course--I will stick to having sushi brought out to my table raw. I think we are going to stick to the local chef owned restaurants in the Bishop Arts District the next time we are in the area."

  • "Awesome food and ambiance, as usual. Always go here for special occasions."

  • "Sprung for the Ultimate Romance Package for our 5th Anniversary. Apart from the added goodies: private seating, flowers at the table, picture, the staff, especially our server, took care to make the evening special. Shrimp with "Angry" Cocktail Sauce on the Big Night Out and the Oreo-crumb-crusted Marshmallows in the Dark and Dulce chocolate fondue were highlights for me, while my wife loved the sliced lobster tail. I forgot to ask that they swap the champagne for a bottle of wine before we were seated, but they handled the change gracefully. It was worth the price for such a fantastic occasion!"

  • "We took our daughter, her boyfriend and both families to The Melting Pot to celebrate her graduation from high school. What a wonderful choice! We had a cozy table for 8! The restaurant has great atmosphere, we laughed and ate to our hearts content! Everyone was happy with the variety and enjoyed sharing the fondues. The food and service was fantastic."
    Dined on 6/8/2014
  • "We went to dallas for a graduation gift for our daughter. We chose to take her to the melting pot as a little more grown up dinning experience. This was the first time we had ever been there. after my brother had told us we wouldnt want to eat boiled meat we got to thinking about it and chose the cooking option with oil before going. we were advised by our waiter of a different choice being better because it was our first time and that the oil was easy to burn up the meat. so we did the mojo option. It was great! didnt taste like boiled meat at all, it was fantastic and we would do it again!"

  • "My wife and I came to celebrate our 28th Anniversary. This is the place to come. The food was great. The atmosphere is cozy (we were in booth). The pace of the meal was fabulous. And more importantly, our waitress, Brittany, was simply outstanding. She was timely in every aspect of our dinner, allowing us to enjoy the meal and even her occasional light banter. In short, the Melting Pot is the place to come for a romantic night."

It is a great location for a romantic dinner as the restaurant is structured for privacy and intimate dining. We will be back. An excellent celebration had by the two of us."

  • "First off, the food is always "Amazing" as usual. :) I have been to the melting pot many times and it was just as good as always, except one thing I noted was that HUNTER the server was very attentive but not too intrusive. Above all he was very respectful. I would rate the food a 10 out of 10. the service off the charts!!! I recommend the melting pot in Arlington out of any in the area. "

  • "We made a reservation and arrived a few minutes early. We were seated promptly in a lover's lane booth as we had requested. Our server was quick to greet us, quick to get the food out, and accurate with our orders. We had absolutely no problems at all, and our 4-course dinner went faster than normal. We enjoyed it being a bit more fast paced so that we were not forced to be sitting at dinner for 2+ hours. We had absolutely no complaints about the food or the service, and it was the perfect way to celebrate my birthday and our anniversary! We keep coming back every year, and we love it. Only thing I was sad about was the fact that they took the cheesecake off the dessert platter :("
