  • Service Disappointing
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 8/31/2014
    A restaurant should always be prepared for a large crowd. My wife and I had reservations for a Sunday at 7:00 p.m. on Labor Day weekend. We were seated and then left unattended for long periods of time between courses. The wine did not arrive until the second course. Inexcusable! Although the management did an admirable job trying to deal with the large number of people, my wife and I were there -- and the restaurant knew it -- to celebrate our 47th wedding anniversary. The lack of attention was a disappointment. Would I go back? Yes. For a special occasion? No.

  • A Tradition is Born

    Dined on 8/1/2014
    A year ago, I took my girlfriend to a Melting Pot in Colorado and soon after asked her to spend the rest of her life with me. She said Yes. This year, to celebrate that moment, I could think of no better place. The service on the second trip, however, was so excellent and we had such a good time that I fear a tradition has been born before my very eyes. From now until our dying days, we will celebrate our lives melding together in the Melting Pot. Thank you.

    Dined on 7/31/2014
    This was our first time to go to a fondue restaurant. The concept was very interesting and the server was excellent...he knew his stuff! We ate ALOT, OMG! It was good food, but very rich. Not use to the richness, especially in the cheese portion of the meal. I felt it was pricey for what it was. I'd rather have the extra expense good to the server. Overall, it was good!

    The Melting Pot in Arlington has certainly become one of my all time favorite restaurants of all time. The service is always fantastic; the servers are genuinely happy to be there. The atmosphere is always friendly and the people are always happy. The fondue is absolutely phenomenal- the best I've ever had! Definitely a must try if you haven't, and a great place to take a date or have a celebration!

    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.

    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.

    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!)

    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.

    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.

    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!
