This place was interesting and different. The food was ok, but I don't feel that it was worth what we paid for it. It was $38 and change for each person, plus your drink and tip. Maybe I just ordered the wrong things. But I was not impressed with the taste of the cheese we had for an appetizer. The pasta was not all that great, they didn't have part of what was offered for that package that I ordered. The vegetarian meat balls were dry. I never was able to get the red potatoes tender. The only thing I really liked about my entree was the mushrooms. The dessert was also a let down. It offers milk chocolate to dip your dessert items into, but what you get is the liquid chocolate syrup. When I asked the waitress about it, she assured me it was chocolate melted wafers. I assure you it was not.

We arrived at 8:25 for a 8:30 reservation. We were seated at 9pm. Our server was prompt and had a good personality. We got drinks, cheese fondue and salad and then everything went downhill from there. Our server started our cooking pot for the meal and said it would take about 10 minutes to boil and she would bring our entrees out. After 20-25 minutes of the sauce evaporating at least an inch, she came back and said it looked almost ready-just a few more minutes. Ten minutes after that, she brought our meats to be cooked. She brought me the teriyaki steak instead of the filet mignon. She did quickly get this fixed. She asked if I wanted another rum and coke, and I agreed, while joking to my husband that I would never see it. The manager brought it to the table 17 minutes later. We cooked, ate and the food was good. Server came back around and discussed dessert. We explained we were stuffed and didn't really have any room-she said we could take it to go or that she would give us cards to come back and redeem for a treat later. I should add here that we had a Groupon for fondue, salads, and three entrees. We were unsure if the Groupon came with dessert but she pressed us so we ordered the Flaming turtle. The server makes the chocolate, threw some heath bar in and disappears. We realize this was not what we ordered and so my husband requested her presence when another server saw us looking around. She came back and we explained the issue, she said it was the same base and she would just add the pecans and 151-we would just have some heath bar in it as well. Now why the dessert concoction was delicious, her nonchalant I screwed up 4 times and didn't apologize approach wasn't appreciated. Oh, and it was $18 for dessert. On a side comment, I thought automatically adding 18% gratuity for a party of 2 wasn't traditionally done, but maybe it is there with a Groupon. Anyway, we arrived before 8:30 and walked out at 11pm! No time for anything else.

The customer service is outstanding, has an very romantic ambiance, cozy, perfect for date night but, the food wasn't that great or worth the price. I will definitely recommend this place but, use a groupon. Because, the food isn't worth the price.

I took my son here for a mother-son date! He has food sensitivities to wheat. It is so hard to eat out!!! BUT here, we said we want to eat gluten-free and I didn't have to worry about a thing. Our server was informed about gluten even in the seasonings. It was enjoyable to not have to worry and relax AND know my son would not be sick later. We will definitely be going back!

Service was horrible and food took forever and chocolate was cold. The waitress was mad that we didn't want to leave her a $31 tip... yea cause she sucked at her job. It was my birthday dinner and people that had never been there said they would never return and was upset at my choice in restaurants.

My daughter and I generally go twice a year. Once for each of our birthdays. We both really enjoy the food. We always do the four course meal which is the best value. I think the cheese is the best course and she thinks its the chocolate. This year we took my youngest nephew with us and it was his first time. He said the chocolate was the best course.

Anyone looking for something different or the opportunity to let the kids play in there food, needs to give this a go.

Have been to this location before and had a better experience this previous times . Service was good but other times I’ve been told we can ask for “refills “ of all food items we ordered including meats and the cheese fondue . And when I asked this time was basically shut down and told no . The server was fine and I have no complaints but for about $40 a person it’s not a great value for my two sons and myself . Restaurant Is always in good shape and clean but the lights need to be turned down a notch. Felt like we were being questioned at a police station !😀

We always have great service at The Melting Pot. My only complaint is that we arrived for dinner at 6:30 pm, ordered our meats (three of us ordered shrimp in our selections), and then we were told 20 minutes later that the table before us took the last of the shrimp and we all needed to make another selection. I guess I don't feel that if I'm paying $240 for dinner that I should have to choose replacement items that I didn't really want because they ran out at the last minute of what I ordered, especially early on into the dinner hours. Other than that, the service is great, and the atmosphere is always enjoyable.

The hostess was rude and disrespectful. She was speaking poorly “whispering” about my husband and me. I worked in the service industry for years and this is absolutely unacceptable. I understand young kids need jobs but they need to be trained how to treat guests!

Our server was wonderful! Very knowledgeable and provided great recommendations. We left her a 30% tip.

We will not be back due to being treated poorly by the hostess staff.

I actually love the melting pot and this time was a little different. I felt like the waiter took too long to come to our table in between meals. Honestly, when I pay that much for food, I don't feel like I should have to wait 15-20 minutes in between courses just to feel miserable to where I can't even have dessert. I mean I will still come back, but I wasn't very pleased with this last visit.

Date Night! We had a table reserved and were seated right on time. They chose for us a secluded alcove where we felt like we were the only ones in the restaurant! Very romantic and special. Our server was top-notch with the perfect mix of attending to our needs and leaving us to our private alcove. I really wish I could remember her name, because she was one of the most on-point servers we've ever had, anywhere!

We started with cocktails. The Blueberry Lemon Drop Martini and the Gummy Bear Martini were so yummy that we ordered another!

We chose the 4-course meal (cheese fondue, salad, meat entree fondue, and chocolate fondue). They have lots of choices for whatever your palate is craving. We had the Quatro Formaggio with charcuterie board, the mixed meat entree (lobster tail, shrimp, pork, sirloin, filet, chicken) and the Yin Yang with Grand Marnier. The amount of food was just about right (we had a little left over).

The restaurant wasn't super busy at 7:30pm on a Thursday, but there were at least 10-15 other tables of people but we couldn't hear any of them from our table. It was the most relaxing meal we've ever had. We were there about 2-1/2 hours and never felt rushed at all.

Highly recommend!

We love traveling to different countries for the food and trying new things in DFW. This was an absolute fail. The cheese fondue was disgusting, the caesar salad was ok, and the fact that my food was boiled in a broth was frustrating. The fondue experience really wasn't as expected. Should've went to Simply Fondue. I purchased a Groupon for $45 for $70 worth of food and still paid $40 extra for a sodas and a mandatory gratuity. As a previous waiter at a restaurant, gratuity is important, but not mandatory, especially when they didn't even bother to ask how the service was upon paying. I would have been better off going elsewhere for my husband's birthday. Never again.
