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.

I loved this restaurant! It had an amazing relaxing ambiance with plenty of privacy at each table. The staff was so helpful and kind! They prepared our fondue right at our table and brought us extra stuff to dip in it when we ran out. Even the servers that weren’t assigned to our table made sure we were served and happy! And the cheese and chocolate were so good! The goods they gave us for dipping were fresh and delicious. Great experience.

Wonderful food the service team was knowledgeable as well as friendly they treated us like family even. The food was unbeatable and the ambiance was quiet enough to seem cozy but still great for our teenagers that we brought with us to feel welcome and enjoy their first visit there as well.
There was a bit of a spill by one of the young ladies clearing our table and we all laughed it off because it truly was an accident and wasn't a big deal at all, yet one of the general managers felt a need to come over and apologize in person and gave my son, the one that got teriyaki spilled on him, haha, a 4 count of delicately chocolate dipped strawberries. A great yet unnecessary gesture and they were veey much so appreciated and enjoyed by us all.

Went to restaurant for a Valentine's Day dinner. The experience was less than memorable if it was it would not be for good reasons. Never been to a resauraunt like this before, the waitress did not do a good job explaining how the courses work. She did not know the ins and out of the menu so the food I ordered was not something I want to come back again for. While cooking my meat portion the recommended time to cook was wrong bc the chicken and beef came out under cooked so literally it had to stay in pot close to 5-6 minutes instead of 1-2mins. After going home reviewing my check I paid for, I remembered we never recievied our salad which was a part of the four course meal I paid for. I am beyond fed up and will not go back and would rather fondue in the comfort of my own home with better results than to come back and spend that much money for something that kept me hungry after the dinner and buy something else to eat. Would not recommend to anyone and have already suggest this to no one I know.

The biggest turn off on the whole evening was when we sat in the bar for 45 minutes and then they attempted to seat us at a table in the bar that sat empty for 45 minutes.

We got there 10 minutes before our reservation at 8:45 , and we re told it would be a few minutes for us to get a table so I assume it was ok because I had some time before reservation, but the hostess was not nice at all not even a welcome or a smile, and when you are going to spend at least $300.00 on a family dinner I think that’s the least you can get .. finally we got seated at 9pm waited for 25 minutes So what’s the point of a reservation?! Anyways the food was good our server was great I just don’t appreciate the treatment of the hostess
