The Melting Pot - Dallas - Addison Ratings and Reviews
I have always enjoyed the melting pot for its amazing service, delicious food and ambiance but the Addison location is subpar. Noisy, dimly lit, outdated and lack of skills for service delivery. After our experience Applebee’s would have been better quality and better cost. I would never recommend this location and that’s so sad.
We were put at a tiny table tucked away in an alcove. The alcove was right next to the kitchen, so we got to hear clattering dishes and chefs/waiters yelling out instructions. Also, there was a glaringly bright light directly above the table that made me feel like I was under interrogation.
Brandon’s experience: I am still hungry, tired from working so hard, and I feel critiqued by other party members
Ollivea: I had a great dinner. And love everything. The waiter was a bit judgement, but aye that’s fine.
Crystal: so much food, yummy and fun
Bearded gunsmith: awesome awesome awesome!!!!!!!!
The Melting Pot is a great experience everyone should try at least once. The food is top notch and the waiters are very friendly. The atmosphere is romantic and cozy. My wife and I usually have our anniversary at The Melting Pot and we've never once had a bad meal. Love it.
The Melting Pot is always fun, but this time we got a server who seemed frantic and kept forgetting what we asked for. When we would remind him, we got excuses about how long it was taking for someone else to get what he needed, but it was obvious that he was just forgetting to do his job. The food was still great, and it was fun, but too many experiences like that one and we may find somewhere else to go for unique dinners.
I love the Melting Pot and will continue to go there, but unfortunately, the service on the night we went was the worst I've ever had. I don't know if the waiter was new or just needs more training, but he made the evening not as much fun as usual. Oh well.
I love the relaxed feel of this place – like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The potato-leek soup was amazing and the Bibb lettuce salad was refreshing. The table was split on the monkfish – one person thought it was great, but another felt that the tastes didn't quite mesh. Everyone loved the flat iron steak. Service was well-timed and friendly, wines were affordable.
It’s no longer the cool, romantic place to go. It doesn’t seem “upscale at all, especially for the prices. The wait staff doesn’t do any kind of presentation or show. The waiter was either pushy or none existent. When the bill came he said they add a 20% gratuity for tables of 6 or more but that he felt good about us but if he was wrong to let him know so he could “pull that trigger”.
Dim lighting is their friend but if you look closely the interior is in very poor shape and not very clean.
The table burners are also dirty so when they fire them up the odor and smoke isn't very appetizing.
The cheese and chocolate fondue are really good but the protein quality is subpar. They definitely take shortcuts on the grade of meat and seafood. Recommend skipping the dinner portion and only coming in for apps or dessert.
Absolutely PHENOMENAL!! From walking through the door to our server to the food! Just spectacular!!
Hector by far exceeded our expectation, not only was he an amazing server but the most incredible server that we have ever had at this establishment! The next time we come we will certainly ask for him, he made our anniversary a night to remember and we felt like he genuinely cared for us having a great experience as well as showing he enjoys what he does! Thank you Hector for making our anniversary one for the books we thank you so much!!
We didn't realize our reservation was only 30 minutes before they closed until we arrived, but they still took great care of us! Our server was very nice (though occasionally hard to understand). We both did the create your own 4 course meal. I ended up with chicken instead of salmon as one of my proteins, but I felt bad bringing it up to the server since we were already staying after closing so I dealt with it. They didn't have veggies separated so we could not enjoy them because I am allergic to mushrooms which was a bit of a bummer. They were also cleaning up while we were there, which is fine, but one staff member got scolded for something at the table next to us which was awkward.
The food and service was still really great though. They decorated a plate for us that wished us happy anniversary that they lit a candle on a rice Krispie for us haha. We also got a box of strawberries! On previous visits we got some sort of $10 off card for celebrating our anniversary at The Melting Pot but we didn't receive one this visit. Still a great date night and I hope to come back for future celebrations!
The overall experience was great. Our server, Hector was fun and very entertaining. The hostess on the other hand could not be bothered that the table that she sat us at was too small for our party even though it was a Sunday and there were plenty of other open tables. Hector took pity on us and moved us right away.
Overall it was a fun night and a great way to have a social dinner. You are too wrapped up in the conversation and cooking that your phone is forgotten.
Leon provided exceptional service and made our anniversary dinner fun and memorable. We have eaten fondue in Switzerland and the alpine fondue at the Melting Pot was as close to the original as we have found. One warning.... when they tell you not to eat off the cooking forks... believe them and take care :)
I love the Melting Pot! It’s great for special occasions or when you’re wanting something different. They do have burners at the bar so if you want a less expensive option or something quick you can do this (Note: only cheese and chocolate allowed).
For regulars at the Addison location: they are replacing broccoli with zucchini. It was fine with the cheese, but not very good with dinner. #bringbackthebroccoli
When we were first seated we were told that it might take a bit for our waitress to come because there were only 2 waitresses for the entire restaurant. The pot on our table was dirty. I asked to have a new one brought. One side of our table was sticky like it hadn't been wiped down. When I went to open my silverware, the napkin was covered with chocolate. The bread for the cheese was extremely stale, almost like croutons. When they put our chocolate on the burner, they didn't bother to check to see if it was on. We mentioned this to our waitress and when she looked it had come unplugged. She asked if we wanted her to crawl under the table and plug it in or if we wanted to do it ourselves. It is her job. When refilling our water glass, the waiter spilled water all over one of our party's foot. All of this and never once was there an apology for the things that were wrong. For $50 a person for cheese, salad, chocolate, and a drink, I expect much better. It'll be quite some time before we go back again.
The Melting Pot is always a great place to go out to eat. It is great for kids (6-7+ yrs) to be a part of a cool meal. The service is always great. Just remember that this is not a fast meal - which is great to allow for conversation and enjoyment - but if you are on a tight schedule for the night, this is not the best option. We love going here - and our 8 year old requests this as a special night out place to go time and time again!
This was my first time at any Melting Pot restaurant and the experience for me and my date was fabulous. The waitress was genuine, knowledgeable, informative, patient (as we had no idea what we were doing), welcoming, and fun. The quality of food was phenomenal and since this visit, everything I try to eat pales in comparison. The atmosphere was quaint with exquisitely private seating even though the area was open. We felt alone in our little neck of the woods. If I could, I would eat here every day!
We are regulars at The Melting Pot in Florida. We celebrated a birthday at the location in Dallas over the weekend and we were not so impressed. Service was slow & the presentation was just not what we are used to. It appeared that our server had way too may tables to be taking care of so lots of things were overlooked & the overall experience was nothing special. Our server did the best he could but he seemed pretty overwhelmed.
