Birthday celebration was fantastic!
The idea and concept are nice and fun, but the food is very bad. The cheese fondue was below average, the bread served with it was old, and then the meats of the entrees were not tasty at all.
Overall the food is below average.
Even during COVID the restaurant is clean. Parties well spaced out, service was wonderful by Javier. Food was great as always.
Thursdate Is A Great Idea! Our Waiter Cassidy Was Amazing!!!
selection of meats is outstanding - same with selection of boiling oil additives - options for chocolate is also nice
Dinner was great server was awesome just when we got there we had to wait on a table and tables were already opened I mean you could see that from outside
Food was bland and not seasoned well at all. Service was mediocre at best.
My anniversary dinner was great! Nao my waiter was great the food was great and we look forward to returning.
Overall, the experience was amazing. Our server was very attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. The bourbon bacon cheese fondue, entrees, and smores chocolate fountain was soo good. We left the place completely stuffed and satisfied.
I’ve been coming here for years! Such good food and a fun experience with fondue! We always have great service!
Everything was awesome. Food and service
Our waitress was wonderful and everything tasted delightful. A very fun date night.
First time here and had an amazingly awesome time..... and will definitely be back to try more
I came with my 2 sisters to celebrate one of their birthdays and this establishment did not disappoint! Everything was absolutely phenomenal from the food to the service. Our server Cassidy was incredible, this was hands down the best dining experience I’ve ever had! Cassidy you are amazing, thank you for making this a memorable experience for my sisters and I!
The server was very nice, the food was great and they offer special services for birthdays and anniversaries which was cute
Excellent food and service. Waitress saw I had kids and timed the meal perfectly!
Took my granddaughter for her birthday. Is a bit pricey, but her comment “exceeded my expectations” (she’s 12) made it totally worth it!!
Destiny and the manager made it a great experience! Kudos to the Melting Pot team on a great first time there.
The Melting Pot is a really fun experience. It is the perfect dinner spot for a nice date or to celebrate a special occasion like a birthday, anniversary, etc. The food is delicious but definitely on the more expensive end.
Everyone was really friendly and had no problem helping out when needed. Any questions that we had they were very diligent about making sure to get us the answer if they were not 100%sure
We enjoyed Restaurant week!! Our waitress was super nice and informative since it was our first time going there. Food was great!!
Will be visiting again!
Always an enjoyable experience at Melting Pot. Thankfully the concept seems to work pretty well with Covid since it's mostly isolated and DIY anyway. Server and the rest of the stuff was very friendly.
Clean, polite, friendly environment, I take all my friends there!
DIEGO WAS OUR SERVER HE WAS VERY VERY HELPFUL AND ATTENTIVE. ALWAYS LOVE GOING TO THIS LOCATION CANT WAIT FOR GIRLS NIGHT NEXT MONTH!
Deliciou dinner and excellent service. Thank you Cassidy and team for taking care of us!

Our server was 100% excellent he came through and explain everything to us and made our visit excellent the kids enjoyed it and everything it was all about the server and that was excellent

In general, I found the Melting Pot not a place to go to for the food or value, but more for the fun of it. Here the service can be a big part of the experience. Unfortunately, it was mediocre at best. As a family of 5, we made the most of it and had a fun evening.
Service was rushed but server was polite. Nice for special occasions. Food was good for what it was.
This is a great place to celebrate birthdays and other special occasions. The service is great and the food too.
A fight broke out and police were called....
We had an amazing date night with the help of Luis (hopefully spelling that right). We did the Arlington special and I definitely feel like we got our money's worth. I'm looking forward to coming back!
Our server, Manuel was very nice and attentive. All very good!
Cheese and chocolate courses are great but the meat course was only fair.
Server was amazing, however for the price “$120” we both left still a little hungry. Cheese fondue and turtle chocolate were pretty good, and we were offered extra dipping sides. Meal was extra small, I did the 3 course and received 6 shrimp/ 6 sausages/ ans 4 little chunks of teriyaki steak. I was thinking to myself, where is the rest of my meat for this price lol. I would go back again, only if someone else is paying though.
My friend told me he wanted to try a fondue place on this trip to DC, so I took him to The Melting Pot to enjoy a 4-course meal. We started with the Bourbon Bacon Cheddar which we enjoyed tremendously. That was followed by the salad course and then the protein assortment. We ordered a classic and a create your own platter and shared all the flavors. The meal ended with a tough choice between the Dark Dulce or the Cookie Butter Crunch. After going with the Cookie Crunch, I was told it was a great choice and really my only choice since they were out of dulce. And he wasn't kidding. It was obscenely, sinfully scrumptious!!! All in all a great evening out, and Steven did a great job hosting the meal and taking care of the table!
While the food was ok even though me and my wife cooked it (So it's kinda our fault). The appetizer spinach dip was delicious along with the salad. The drinks were delicious I will definetly have to come back for the ying and yang martini. Lastly I would like to review my server I forgot her name please look her up and reward her ( The reservation was at 9:30 last name is jones). She has highest level of professional service I've seen in hospitality in years. The resturuant closed in 20 mins when we got sat and we still received full service with an enthusiastic and high energy work attitude. If we dont come back for food we will definetly come back because of her. She is a star server and again deserves to be rewarded for her services. We will be back!!!
This is our second time at the melting pot and we love it! Definitely pricey, however it is worth it for a special occasion. Our server was AWESOME and made our experience even better!
the service was very slow and sporadic. This was the first time we had been seated in front of the bar. long breaks in food delivery and seeing our waiter. i am not sure if it was where we were sitting or that it was a Sunday night. Food quality was good.
