    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.

    It's was my daughters birthday. I put that in our reservation and I also told our waiter when we arrived. He left us for a long time without checking back on us. Then he did not do the special birthday dessert that I saw others getting that night. A little disappointing.

    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 always enjoy the melting pot for special occasions. A little pricey so we save it for birthdays. This time our waiter was great but must have had too many tables because he was clearly stressed and we waited a long time between courses. Still food was great and we thoroughly enjoyed it.

  • Poor overpriced experience
    OpenTable Diner Since 2006
    Dined on 8/14/2014
    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!

    This restaurant is totally retro...a fern bar without the ferns. The Addison location is upstairs, dark and looks worn out. After the host rattled off a garbled description of the menu we asked about the restaurant week menu and and were scolded for not specifying the restaurant menu when we made our reservation. Not a great welcome...but never mind on to the food. Again a disappointment. Our waiter was unkempt and the service unpolished, but well paced. The cheese used in the cheese fondue was not great..no cheese flavor. The entree fondue was better and the table top cooking is fun, but not good enough to offset the rest of the experience. I think I'll just make fondue at home.

    I have been to Melting Pots around the country, and it is not your Daily fare. This was my first time at this location, and I found the experience enjoyable ( my daughter enjoyed celebrating her 17th birthday here). However, if I was asked to rank all locations I have been to, this would be at the bottom of the list. The waiter was odd and interesting. The food was good. I would go back, but with a different expectation.

    The drinks were no better than you can get at any local watering hole. The 10 cane mojito appeared to be made with an off the shelf mix. I make better mojitos at home.The initial cheese dish was okay but wasn't paired well with what it's served with. Quality is lacking as the "fresh vegetables" served with it were not the quality I would serve to a patron. (Brown brocolli). The main course tasted fine though our server told us to boil the meat for 2 minutes and when we did as instructed, the chicken wasn't cooked properly. We had to lengthen all of our cooking times to fully cook the food. Quality control was lacking here as well since several potatoes brought with the main course had the black eye visible.Again, not something I would serve

    Very disappointed in our visit to The Melting Pot this time. We were utilizing the Fondue & a Show promotion that they had going. Walked in & there wasn't a hostess at the hostess stand. When 2 showed up, they spent more time talking to each other than greeting customers. Our server was very surly & didn't bother to explain the promotion or the cheeses. He seemed extremely put out when we asked questions or asked for a menu to explain the selections. When he was making the cheese, he dumped cheese all over the table which he never bothered to clean up. There were 4 of us, & got food for two. Had to ask for more. TMP is what I would call a 360 dining experience and the showmanship is part of what you pay for. It was not there for us.
