We haven't been for a while, but several times in the past, and noticed a few places in food selection, content, and volume where they appear to be trying to reduce their costs, but of course not reduced to the diners. Otherwise, an excellent experience as always. I'm sure we'll be back.
We went here for our anniversary and were excited, but had an experience that we aren’t eager to have again. Our reservation was for 7:15, and if we had eaten all 4 courses of our meal there (ie if we hadn’t asked for our dessert fondue to-go) we wouldn’t have left until 10. It was our first time there, and our waitress Latifah was not eager to explain the process to us, so there was a lot of confusion when it came time to order. We got the “Big Night Out” and hadn’t expected to have to cook our food (again, partially because Latifah hadn’t bothered to explain), so it ended up being more work than we’d thought we signed up for...if we’d known we would have had to cook our own food, we could certainly have stayed home. Also, as newbies, we were not waited on nearly as frequently as we would’ve liked. Unless you have the time to spare or are looking for a DIY cooking restaurant experience, I don’t recommend this restaurant for a relaxing night out—especially after a full day of work. Latifah did redeem herself slightly by bringing us champagne and chocolate covered strawberries to celebrate our occasion, but by that time we were so ready to go that we couldn’t thoroughly enjoy it.
Amazing service and great food!
The restaurant was not empty but not full. Erin was great - engaging, knowledgeable, on top of things. She brought refills at the right time but was not intrusive. She made dessert better than what I was thinking with her suggestion.
They have a wonder Thursdate night setup. Wonderful and enjoyable with great service and was a wonderful surprise for the wifie
First time. Will return to try chocolate fondue next time!
Did not disappoint! Delicious! Fun!
It was outstanding as always
It was amazing, Lorenzo was a great server. Oscar and Jose were so nice and helpful as well!
Has unlimited entry. Was amazing, highly recommend going Monday - Wednesday in September
My first experience there, my wife and I had an amazing time and our waitress was very helpful with suggestions and keeping our table attended to.
Service was great, the food was mediocre at best. The cheese in the fondue was ok but the bread and veggies they give you are very low quality. The vegetables were like kitchen scraps and the bread tasted like it was purchased at Safeway. The main course was good and an entertaining way to spend the evening. Desert was also ok if not overly sweet. This feels like a place that used to be very special but has been diluted by over expansion and corporate greed.
Great experience for the family. Unlimited entrée was more than enough food, good value.
Our server Leah was fantastic. She made new suggestions and kept our cups full at all times
Nice quiet place to enjoy with friends, family and whomever.
I had my birthday celebration here and the food was very good and the waiter was so nice and funny
Despite reservations, we were made to wait while the hostess stand figured out where to put us. It took at least 10 minutes to get our drink order started. The first course was prompt, the second dragged and at that point, I hadn’t seen the waiter in over 40 minutes. We were in the restaurant over 2 hours, which is ridiculous. The food quality was good though.
Excellent Melting Pot experience for a party of 5 in celebration of our client's home sale! We enjoyed three courses on the Restaurant Week Menu along with two bottles of Tribute, a California Cabernet, to complete the wine pairing. Our first course was two cheese options of which we selected Wisconsin Cheddar, and Bacon Brie. The Bacon Brie was the favorite of the table. Second course, salad of choice, which everyone enjoyed their own selection. The third course of meat, seafood, and vegetables was enhanced by the Fondue Cooking Styles of Court Bouillon - seasoned vegetable broth, and Coq Au Vin - Burgundy wine, mushrooms, scallions, garlic.
One of my personal favorites was the wild mushroom sacchetti. The three courses completed the evening as we did not have room for dessert. Our server, Cameron, was very attentive to our tables needs!! The Melting Pot is always a fun, interactive evening of great food, wine, conversation, and laughter.
First time trying this place. Make sure you got time for a long meal, didn't realize the process took us 3 hours. Note not saying service was slow or anything, the experience was just this long. Service was great! Our server was attentive, made good recommendations. All the flavors for the 4 cheeses was great, chocolate caramel fondue had a good taste, the entree - meats was also good, recommend the Caribbean/mojo flavoring. Definitely a steal for restaurant week being only $22 lunch for 3 course, $5 for chocolate. But what really wow'ed me was the wine flight. It was $18 and I got 4 glasses from white, rose, to 2 reds for each course (cheese, salad, entree/meat, and dessert).
Great experience, food was amazing and service excellent
Perfect place to eat during these times!
Server, Ashley, was excellent. Food was plentiful, well-prepared and well-timed. Spacing was correct and venue was nice.
I loved it!
This restaurant never disappoints, really enjoyed it.
A great night out! Friendly, attentive staff and delicious food! My wife has a fractured ankle and the staff easily and professionally accommodated our request to address her mobility issues. Thank you!
The service was very slow
Our waitress, was awesome! She listened to our crazy animal stories and took her time explaining the menu. We told her about how it was one guests birthday, another’s anniversary and she went out her way to make us feel special. Really appreciated the kindness from her.
It was clean, safely spaced and everyone wore masks when not at their table.
Great food as always. Our server, Emily, was the best. She was very attentive and took very good care of us. We will be back.
Even better than I remembered!
You were open for business and it was good to enjoy a meal away from home again.
Fabulous meal! fabulous service! Cory and and Jose provided us with a great dining experience!
Amazing like always
Everything was super nice and the server was really good.
Cameron was an excellent server. Took amazing care of us. The food was delicious and the precautions they are taking to keep everyone safe made us feel super comfortable.
I was there for my anniversary and the ballon they gave us barely had air in it. The service was horrible. It took them over 20 minutes to have someone to greet us. The food wasn’t that great either. Just a horrible experience for my first time there.
We're sorry to hear that your experience wasn't the best. Would you be willing to contact us at 703-435-1277? We'd love to make things right!
This was our first restaurant experience since COVID-19 and they knocked it out of the park. The restaurant was very clean and tidy. They sat every other table. The fondue experience was as fabulous as ever. Our waiter, Oscar, did a fantastic job taking care of us.
Great way to celebrate Father’s Day!
Enjoyed a lovely dinner to celebrate Father's Day. Food was fresh and delicious. Service impeccable!
No compromise in service or quality despite the constraints of dining under COVID-19 rules. Had a lovely evening!
