Very quiet restaurant with individual dining booths. Waitress did an excellent
job explaining all and with her attentive service. We always spend special
occasions here.

Incredible atmosphere and service... food was very good as well ... especially desert!!!! Make sure you plan for at least 2 hours so that you are not rushed ... we had reservations for 9:00 pm and almost missed our movie reservations at 11:00 (theatre was a 2 minute drive) ... we will be visiting again, no doubt!!!

Our experience was ok, not necessarily a bad experience, just not a great experience like the fondue place in downtown Fort Worth. The salad was good, as was the cheese, although the cheese was a very small portion. The meats were ok, nothing to write home about. And lastly, the chocolate was ok, but again lacking portion size. All in all it was a so so experience, definitely will return simply Fondue instead.

This is probably one of the better Melting Pots I've eaten at. At first I was a little taken aback at the waiter's snootiness, but he definitely warmed up quick and fell into a routine. We then realized it was part of his style and that he most definitely wanted us to have a good dining experience. The Ambiance was amazing, not too loud and not too quiet either. The courses were laid out well to enhance the whole Fon-Due dining experience. If you're looking for a nice date that won't destroy your bugdet but still give you some elegance...you can't go wrong here.

Over all it was pretty excellent. The only draw back was the waiter, he was pretentious to the point of rude. I think he thought he was being funny but he wasn't. If the gratuity wasn't automatic he wouldn't have a tip from me.

We have been to two Melting Pot locations on 4 different occasions. Our visit to the Melting Pot in Addison, Texas on two occasions was wonderful. The atmosphere is wonderful, romantic and inviting. We have been to the Melting Pot in Arlington, Texas twice as well, but the experience is not quite on the same level as the Addison, TX location. The hostess in Arlington was rude and dismissive which set the tone for the whole experience. The waitstaff was wonderful but not quite as kind as in Addison. The food is great but the Romance package at the Addison location is way above the one in Arlington. This ultimate romance package is pricey; we spent around $200 for each of the 3 times we have done it and we decided we would never go back to the Arlington location but instead will drive an hour to go to the Addison location.

I always love the melting pot! The food and ambience are wonderful… Our server was very friendly and courteous. The only problem was that she was a little slow and kept us waiting in between courses for significant periods of time. It was a Saturday night it was very busy so they may have been short staffed. But overall the food and the experience was wonderful!

With out of town guest arriving decided to try someplace different. Had a groupon so went to the Melting Pot. Can't say it was great. More like just okay. For the fun, different place okay and admit that the dessert chocolate fondue was very good, even if the items provided were small and could have been better. But the rest?--Not so much. Nice salad but entree was small chucks of various raw meats everyone dunks in a fondue pot to "cook" . Maybe it's just me, but I couldn't get past thoughts of cross contamination and the fact that (even though the waiter suggested otherwise) the rest of the party used the same fork to dunk items and then ate it of the fork, repeat. Multiple double dipping. YUCK!

I loved my experience over all, although there was two things I didn't like. One was that when I asked our server for stuff he would never bring it, I had ask someone else for the same thing and they would have to bring it to me. Another thing, I was panning on tipping 20%+ regardless of anything because I know the server does most of the work what I didn't like was that my check has already taken a 18% for the tip. I felt racially profiled because I'm Hispanic and they just thought I wasn't going to tip, it's was rude to me. I still left over 20% but that made me upset.
