  • It was a great experience, besides de receptionist
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 11/17/2014
    We reserved a specific setting planning to have a great first impression and a great night with that. However when we got there the receptionist made us wait, the place was not busy at all. Then we were seated at a plain table, nothing we were expecting. After we mention about our request when we booked, she said that she might have seated us at the wrong table. It was obvious that the details of our reservations were not noted when we got there. So we waited even longer till they fix our table. My question will be, why reserved if the place was not busy at all and they are not ready when you arrived. After this rocky start, the rest of the night was great. Our server did his best to make us feel appreciated, was profesional and friendly.

  • Just so sad...
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 11/7/2014
    We USED to go to the Melting Pot for very special occasions. The good: I liked making the reservation through Open Table via e-mail - very easy. The bad: 1) They acknowledged our reservation when we got there and we had to check 3 times before we were seated and the restaurant was not even 1/2 full. 2)The menu has changed so for $40 I got 4 bite sized pieces of duck, 4 bites of beef, two dumplings and 2 tiny shrimp. AND we had to pay for the broth to cook them in. The Ugly: Our waitress was trying very hard to be cheerful and charming. She was never to be found when we needed something - and we had to wait a VERY long time for her to take our order, then for her to bring the food. NOT a good experience. Not going back.

  • Server Talked to Fast
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 11/1/2014
    The food and the service was great, but our server kept bringing us five plates, instead of the six that were in our party. No big deal, though. This was the first experience for the majority of our party that evening so we needed our options explained to us. The waiter went through the menu and the process SO FAST! It left us all wondering what he said as we only picked up on bits and pieces of what he said. We had to figure it out for ourselves. We liked that he gave us his recommendations to help us make decisions on which cheeses and desserts to choose. It wasn't horrible service by any means and we understood that he's probably explained this several times during his shift. Overall, it was a wonderful dining experience that we enjoyed.

    I've been here a number of times and have always enjoyed my visit. This time though, the service was not very good. The waiter seem disinterested and put out, the food portions were a lot smaller usual, and some of the dessert items tasted a little stale. Not sure if I just caught it on a bad night, but I'm disappointed because I always look forward to going here. Not sure if I will return.

    The Melting Pot of Addison is one of my top two restaurants in the Dallas. The food is excellent. The cheese fondue is the best...except for maybe the dessert.. it's a toss up. They also have fantastic main dishes, even their salads are great! It's a great romantic spot, although also suitable for groups. You've got to try this place at least once. Caution: by going once you will likely fall in love and want to keep going!

    We have been here numerous times and we absolutely love it! This time was different, they were featuring a new beer but did not have it in stock. They also were promoting their endless fondue Friday nights but did not state that it was for a specific entrée. Also, please add the baked potato cheese to your menu or at least offer it.

    We have dined at the Melting Pot several times a year for quite some time. Our most recent visit left quite a bit to be desired. We were so disappointed that we left before the chocolate course. We had to wait over 15 minutes for our reserved table, our waiter was inattentive, the chicken on our entrees was rubbery and there was a baby crying loudly a few tables over. Not the experience you look for when paying $50 pp for dinner. Not sure if we'll be back anytime soon.

    I have been to the Melting Pot several times over many years. I will not be back. A new cheese dip called "Alpine" has been added. The smell was literally so bad at the first table, I had to fight a gag reflex. Luckily, we were able to be seated at another table. After the change, the service and food was exemplary. Thanks but I won't take another chance unless this item is removed from the menu.

    I chose the Melting Pot in Addison to celebrate my wife's birthday this year. We've been on multiple occasions and have never had a bad experience. The food and the staff are always top notch. We had not been in over 2 and a half years since our daughter was born and it hadn't changed a bit. We always have a good time and have always left surprisingly full.

    Slooow service. Two people at bar when we arrived and took 5 minutes to be acknowledged, and then longer for him to pour two glasses of wine. Server seemed irked and left us looking at empty plates and glasses for long stretches. Entrance was dark and creepy and we were hit up by homeless couple on the way in. It was our anniversary. I paid extra for flower petals on the table. You'd think they would have thought to set us somewhere other than next to the one family in the place with small children. When my wife asked if we could move, they said it would be another 30 min wait, even though there were several open tables. First and last time I go here.

  • Little Things Add Up
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 10/4/2014
    Melting Pot is always a great option for a leisurely fun meal with friends. We definately enjoyed our meal, but had so many little problems that added up by the end of the night. We were not thrilled with our table and asked to be reseated & were basically told to 'deal with it'. We had two fondue forks that were the same color and asked to switch & were told to 'deal with it'. We waited on water, waited on drinks, waited on everything. Our dinner for 6 people took 4 hours. We expected leisurely, but they seemed understaffed that night. We are a very easy going, group and we were not overly concerned about any specific faux pas, but the culmination of all the events of the night led to not great overall experience.

    My husband and I came to this location to celebrate our anniversary. We had a really great time and the service was excellent. The alpine cheese fondue was disappointing, but the Mojo cooking style and Chocolate Cream Pie Fondue were both delicious. We did have a long wait in between courses, so if you dine here, make sure you have more than two hours available. Kristopher was our server and he did a wonderful job.

    I have been to The Melting Pot before (not this location, but 4 others), but my friend had not. We were greeted as soon as we came through the door and seated immediately. There weren't many people there and you could barely here any music. I could here the conversations at the other tables. Our waiter RJ greeted us very quickly and suggested a cocktail. My friend declined and I ordered a Jack and 7 tall. He then explained how the menu works and answered a few questions for my friend. Once we ordered JR delivered each course with great timing and explained to my friend what everything was and how it worked. Each course was excellent and delicious. RJ was very informative about some of the changes to this location. We will be back.

    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

    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.

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 $$.
