Fondue
Gourmet cheeses, crisp salads, juicy meats, fresh seafood, and decadent chocolate—all these delicious selections await you at The Melting Pot. But a meal at our Reston restaurant is about more than just the food (even though the food is amazing); it’s an interactive and fun experience that gives you the opportunity to reconnect and grow closer with friends and family. Pick up a skewer, and dip fruit, veggies, meats, marshmallows, and more into a warm pot of fondue. Choose 1 or 2 of your favorite courses (cheese and chocolate please!), or indulge in the full 4-Course Experience. And don’t forget to complement your meal with a glass of wine, a cocktail or craft beer. You’ll find our restaurant in the Plaza America Shopping Center near Reston Town Center.

Reserve your table and get ready to enjoy some fondue!

    Service was fine, although a bit slow on the drinks end. Food was exactly what you’d expect and very tasty. Unfortunately, for a restaurant that have every table generating lots of heat, it is inadequately climate controlled. By the end of our meal, several folks had to head outside because the air temperature had become extremely unpleasant. There was a noticeable 15degree temp differential between the lobby and the main restaurant. Sadly, this was not a good way to end a celebratory meal.

    Melting Pot has lost its charm and great food. Seemed all the best items on the menu were missing or just forgotten when asked about. It will be a while before we return.

    Have been to this location several times. Service speed varies, there were huge lags between courses this time. My shoes stuck to the floor in several areas, which happened last time- I don’t know if drinks are being poured sloppily or cheese sauce ingredients are being spilled. The bathroom supplies ran out, no soap, no tp in 2 stalls. Not really any excuse for that on a relatively quiet Thursday night. Otherwise, the food was as expected

    The staff was extremely swamped, so it took a little bit for our server to get to our table. However, it was well worth the wait. The food was delicious, the experience was fun, and our server Derrick was super attentive and incredibly sweet. This is by far the best Melting Pot location in the DMV.

    Jefferson was outstanding as well as all the people we interacted with. Once they knew that we had been before many times it was streamlined for us. There were many people there celebrating birthdays which was nice to hear. The pace of the meal was spot on for us and extras requested were brought in a timely manner.

    Service was poor and slow. Our server was scarce and forgot a few things we requested. He also called us Boss and M’Girl, which was a little strange. They have taken cauliflower off the menu or were out of it for the cheese course. Came out with an entire pretzel roll, 2 slices of pepper, 3 apple slices and 5 slices of celery (?!). It was bizarre and not good. Meats and seafood were good.

    The service at this restaurant was horrible as we had issue with almost every course of the meal. We hardly ever saw our server and many of the items we asked for never got to us and the ones that did it was only because we asked 3 times. I have been to melting pot many times before but this is my first time post Covid and have to say will be my last as this used to be a great place to take my family despite the higher price but it was worth it because of the service that we got. This place is no longer worth the price of the meal.

    Tyler was our waiter, and told us he was new. He was very friendly, and very busy! The manager helped him out in his section, but I have to compliment him for checking on us and being so friendly. The food and drinks were wonderful, and we love the ambiance. Must try the Oktoberfest special! Yummy!

    We went to Melting Pot for our Anniversary. To start our server Tyler was awesome, he was new but you would not know! He did a great job and we enjoyed him. The food was also good, about what you expect. But the staff in the front seemed so frazzled the entire time we encountered them. I am pregnant and it’s very obvious, she went to seat us in the tiniest both that only had one side. Then when I asked for another table she seemed annoyed, you have to be able to move around when you are at the melting pot and with a big baby in my belly that was not happening. Once we got seated everything was okay, like I said our server was great. It was only the hostess that seemed to be out of their element.

    It took 3 hours for our party of 4 to finish dinner. VERY slow service to say the least. Our server was great when we saw him but I think he was serving too many tables while we were there. For 3 hours! Food was tasty though.

    Every time we go the service is AWFUL. We only go back because the food is so good… and this is what my daughter requested for her birthday. It took ten minutes just to get water. I never got the lemon I asked for to have in my water! After asking three times, I gave up! After our main course, our waiter literally disappeared! When we finally got our chocolate, it wasn’t what we ordered. No one ever came to check on us, ask if we wanted more dippers, etc. Also, despite them knowing it was my daughter’s birthday, nothing special was done. This was a completely awful experience and I really can’t see us ever going back:-( despite years of bad service experiences, they haven’t changed their ways and it’s just not worth the aggravation.

    Overall, very good experience. Great food, great ambiance, and generally good service. Things were a little slow on delivery and took reminders. Also, for the semifinal course, we believe (confirmed by another waiter) that insufficient water was put into the final pot causing it to smoke badly causing a breathing reaction with our children. Other than the lack of cooking water, everything else was fine.
