    I have been there several times. Great food and nice romantic setting. They fall short on larger parties. We had long waits to get our plates cleared, drinks refilled and next course served. Our waitress was spread too thin. We sat there waiting for 20 mins to have our plates cleared waiting on desert. Water was not refilled unless you tracked someone down. Again great for couples not great for big parties

    We go to the melting pot every year for our wedding anniversary. We have always had a pleasant experience. The food and service were great as always. We were a little disappointed this year that the manager did not stop by our table and we were extremely disappointed that cheesecake was replaced by pineapple for the dessert course :(

    This is, by-far, the worst managed restaurant in north Dallas. After an hour and a half of waiting for food, we finally had to call it quits. The stove in the table wasn't working, the management kept telling us that it would start up any minute. The blinds and windows haven't been cleaned for years. The dust and debris are caked on the window sills against the booths. The food is mediocre (only had first course) the server tried her best. Basic equipment doesn't work and the upholstery in the booths is ragged and torn. Incomplete wine list. We were told to rummage thru wine area to see if there is anything we wanted. It is clear this restaurant needs investment and new management.

    My wife and I usually celebrate special ocassions at The Melting Pot. This time it was our 16th anniversary and since we recently learned the Addison location had re-opened, we decided to give it a try. Since other locations in the area had been remodelled and are new and refreshed, we expected the same with Addison but to our surprise, the restaurant was the same as before. In fact, upon seating, we had to change tables due to a broken bench. The menu is the same ole outdated menu, unlike other locations that sport newer menus with new, innovative offerings. I was pleased to see they were finally on OpenTable. The service was good! The bar also needs a refresh! All in all, great place but in need of a refresh.

    3 friends and I went for a girls' night, to celebrate a birthday. It was great food, with wonderful staff, and truly fun. My friends and I had a blast. It is a place to take your time, enjoy your food, and have fun with whoever you are with. We will definitely be going there again. Our waiter (Justin) was fantastic, and we will request his section for our next visit. Whether with family, friends, or on a date, you will enjoy your time here.

    We love TMP! Great food, great service and now even greater prices! :) Word to the wise, go easy on the cheese and salad, while this is all very yummy, the main entree and chocolates are the best!!! The best time to go for romantic dinners is earlier when it is quiet and you can get secluded tables in the corners.. After 6 the place gets hopping and louder with lots of happy people eating yummy good food.

    Normally I love visiting the melting pot. However, this was not a typical experience with the known food chain. First, to find the entrance we had to call. The two doors are unmarked and it it located above 7 eleven. The food was good as always but the place looked dirty and smelled as bad. I will not be visiting this location again.

    In a nutshell the whole experience was awful. The waitress was scattered and not attentive. The cooking oil was too hot and burned our food..we had time to find a manager and have the oil replaced before the waitress showed up again. The manager was nice initially and helped fix the problem but didn't bother to check on us again. The whole experience (for 2 of us) took just over 3 hours and we didn't want to linger. The cheese course was good, the salads ok but overdressed, the meat portion was just not good, maybe poor quality meats but something was a little off and the chocolate was good but also started schorching towards the end. Overall a big waste of $100 ..way overpriced for the service and quality..save your $$.

    expensive, but fun for a special occasion. the food value isn't very good. four people order four courses but with only two burners per table-you don't wind up getting four choices. For the prices charged, I felt cheated. Food was ok, service was excellent.

    The four course experience had delicious offerings for all four courses. But we had to go get other waiters to get us water and tea refills all night long, and our waitress happened to be incredibly rude on top of not being very attentive. I'd recommend this place for a special occasion if you could avoid the waitress we had!!!

    Staff and food, GREAT! Had some parents in restaurant during our visit that allowed the kids (sounded under 6 years of age) to be loud and kept shrieking with no parental intervention to settle down. I paid for the Ultimate Romance Package and the unruly kids almost ruined the experience. Our waiter went out of his way to make the situation better.

    Enjoyed a dinner at Melting pot on a weeknight. Kris was our waiter and explained every step to us clearly. We had not been to Fondue before so the different sauces, stew pot choices and menu choices were a bit overwhelming. My wife and I shared a 4 course meal, the Classic. Talked about life, love and family. The booths were tall - - so our conversations were very private. We recommend Melting Pot for anyone who can devote 2 hours or more to a romantic dinner.

    Went here with my husband, my sister-in-law and her husband duringRestaurant Week. This was our first experience here. We had the Black Cheddar Truffle, California salad, entrees (Pork Medallion, Ahi Tuna, Filet Mignon, Spinach And Artichoke Ravioli, Chicken, Shrimp, and Mushroom Sacchetti) and Smores dessert. The Chicken entree was overly seasoned, but everything else was very tasty. There was plenty of food, and the service was very good. The cuts of meat and fish were fresh and good quality. For the $35/person price, it was worth the value. I don't know if I'd go there without a special price going on, because it's kind of pricey (especially when you have to cook your own food). It's a nice date or group food experience.

    The food is here is great, especially the desert items. However, be prepared to be there about 3 hours four all 4 courses. Our server was very personable and professional, the only criticism I would have would be that we had to ask for refills every time our glasses were empty. We came on an anniversary date but I think it's best to come with at least 4 people.

    We made a reservation for 8:30. We arrived at 8:25 and were told they were running 40 minutes behind. I asked whey they didn't call and didn't have an answer other than saying they were too busy. There were 4 other parties waiting for a table but the restaurant was not busy. We asked to see the manager, and she acted as if they had no experience working in a restaurant. Shocking. It was my daughter's birthday, so we waited. There were 7 open tables when we were seated. Our waiter had 7 tables, and was clearly spread to thin. It was dirty, poorly lit, and smelled bad. Portions were very small and the food was extremely overpriced. Never got an apology, or a visit from a manager to check on us. Horrible experience and we will not return.

    The experience was definitely an EXPERIENCE. I don't think I was quite prepared for the duration of the 4 course meal; however, I know (now) to reserve an earlier time on a work night. I wasn't very please with the cheese selection we chose; however, our server did accommodate us with another selection... which caused a longer duration of our first experience. The best experience was the desert. Overall it was a great experience.

    This was my first time here. My wife had been wanting to go for a long time, so I took her for her birthday. The cheese was really good. We had the spinach artichoke. The salad was nothing special. Mine seemed like it could have come right out of a bag from the grocery store. I was not impressed with the main entrée. Boiled is not my preferred method of cooking a steak. I did enjoy the tuna however, and my wife said the ravioli was good. The vegetable were good. Overall, just an OK meal for me. The bill was over $100. I feel like I could have done better somewhere else for the price. At least I finally got that crossed off my list of places to go. On a positive note, the service was very friendly. Blaike did a great job.

    The food was excellent especially the cheese/bread and the dessert. The main course was good but the portions were small considering the price. Our bill with 1 drink and including tip was one hundred and ten. The main course gave the choice of 5 items to pick. Each selection was only 2 pieces except for 3 shrimps. I would go back but only for special occasions.

    We came here for DFW RW and were very pleased. We have already made plans to go back. The waiters are super nice, so service is amazing. They make all the fondues in front of you. It makes the whole restaurant very fragrant. We tried the Truffle Cheddar, and it was fantastic. Everything mesh and the dippers paired well with the cheese. Their portions may seem small, but you really do get full off all those little tasty morsels!
