This place is beautiful. I love how elegant it feels. The waiter was very sweet and explained everything to us. He was always there when we needed him. The food was delicious . This is a great place to go for an anniversary , bday or holiday :) I do recommend it to everyone. Just be ready to spend about 2 hours there and some cash.

Food was great but the service was poor. Our server went missing frequently for long stretches and forgot items multiple times.

This is not our usual experience here. Service is usually fantastic and I hope this was just a server having a bad day and not an indication of the new standard for servers.

We were there to celebrate a birthday and it was our first time being there. The waiter walked us through everything and helped us and provided great service. The food was amazing and at the end they gave chocolate covered strawberries to the birthday girl and overall it was an amazing experience and can’t wait to go back.

We were celebrating with our daughter. She has severe food allergies - particularly to peanuts. We had left a note with our Open Table reservation. Our server was not only aware of but he went above and beyond ensuring that our food was handled separate from others and was delivered to our table with special care and attention. We had an absolutely amazing dinner. Everyone enjoyed their night out. Thank you!

Our dinner was good, although I'd like to see a little better variety on the Endless Fondue. We weren't rushed and enjoyed the meal. Our waitress could have been more attentive, and even though it wasn't busy at all on Sunday evening, all of the tables were seated together, and some were quite loud. We'll go back, but probably only for date night, as it is quite expensive for what you get, and the service can be aggravating.

Took our son for his 19th birthday dinner. We had a great time! Service was impeccable, very quick, very friendly and very well informed about the menu. Every pot was perfectly prepared, every bite was thoughtfully cut and presented. Fondue menus can sometimes be a little confusing, our server was on the spot with recommendations and completely put us at ease. Plates were removed and courses were set in a very timely fashion. She was obviously keeping a close eye on our progress and we never wanted for anything. The bar is well stocked with good labels, cocktails are truly handcrafted and delicious. Get the Lemonberry Mojito! My son had fun "cooking" his own bites and we laughed and enjoyed our time together. Then our server surprised my son with chocolate-dipped giant strawberries! What a great night!

That was legit the best food I’ve ever eaten. It’s expensive but 100% worth it! Me and my friend saw the melting pot on YouTube, and it was totally worth the 3-hour drive.

Amount of chocolate for $30 was skimpy. Barely 1/4 of pot for 3 people. New cheese was excellent.

Overall the food and atmosphere were great. The only downfall I had was that it took over four hours to get through the four course meal. This was my first time visiting so I’m unsure if this time frame is normal, although I would think it isn’t. Other than that one set back the experience was great.

I frequent the Arlington location often. I bring family and business associates. At Christmas I buy gift cards here to hand out. I can’t say enough for the staff, food and atmosphere here. It’s definitely a place to go and enjoy great dining.

Only once did I have a bad experience here and the managers took care of the issue immediately. One bad experience out of the many times I’ve gone is nothing compared to the great experiences.

Melting Pot in Arlington (TX) is always a great option! Good food, fun, service. Have never been disappointed in anything... EVER! It is a little pricey and you definitely have to have the time to eat there. It's an experience. And bring your appetite, you won't leave hungry!

We were celebrating THREE birthdays the evening we dined at Melting Pot in Arlington with our group of seven. We all had such fun and left FULL! Our granddaughter, who is nine, loved getting to be part of the cooking action. Our server was AMAZING! This was certainly worth the time and cost the evening we were there. I would highly recommend this location for any special occasion.

My husband and I have been wanting to come here for the longest time and we finally made it! While the food is great and so was the service, I don’t think the cost is worth it. It’s great that you get to cook your own food at the table and decide the flavor of your food, but you get less food for more cost. Great for a special occasion or a big night out, but not for an every day thing.

I heard so much about it and finally decided to try it out. It was nothing like what I had in mind, it was so much better. My husband and I were out on a date and this was nothing short of perfection. We were taken to a small intimate booth where we didn't have to hear kids screaming or 10 conversations at once. The waiter came and informed us of EVERYTHING the restaurant had to offer, since it was our first time dining there. He was kind, considerate, he made small talk and really showed us that he valued our business. The food was great, i was looking for different, something I had never tasted before and the Melting Pot delivered. We loved it!

It was my boyfriend and i’s anniversary, it was a busy night at the restaurant so the service was understandably a little slower than usual, but our server - Dakota - was super friendly and honest and articulated his menu-explanation very well. He did his entire job by memory and it was clean and impressive. I had the blueberry açaí lemon martini and it was absolutely amazing. Overall though, it was a bit overpriced.
