Fondue

Gourmet cheeses, crisp salads, juicy meats, fresh seafood, and decadent chocolate—all these delicious selections await you at The Melting Pot. But a meal at our Reston restaurant is about more than just the food (even though the food is amazing); it’s an interactive and fun experience that gives you the opportunity to reconnect and grow closer with friends and family. Pick up a skewer, and dip fruit, veggies, meats, marshmallows, and more into a warm pot of fondue. Choose 1 or 2 of your favorite courses (cheese and chocolate please!), or indulge in the full 4-Course Experience. And don’t forget to complement your meal with a glass of wine, a cocktail or craft beer. You’ll find our restaurant in the Plaza America Shopping Center near Reston Town Center.

Reserve your table and get ready to enjoy some fondue!

We had not had a large-ish party at this location. We had a party of 6 and had an absolutely amazing experience! As always, the food was outstanding. The large round table/booth was incredibly accommodating and comfortable with two burners and a set up that allowed everyone to converse easily. We had impeccable service, in spite of the restaurant being quite busy. Looking forward to going again soon. Would certainly recommend this place for every day dining, special occasion, date night, ladies night, etc. Or any excuse you want to use to dine at MP😉 DELICIOUS!!

Our server had the large private parties in the back room, in addition to our table and a couple others. It was clearly too much of a load - she was great when she was available.

Had to cancel the chocolate because the service was so slow. After we visited this place they have reached out to understand what the issue was and to make sure that they can improve. I have never seen such customer focus and service. We will be back to try again …. The food was very good

If you’re paying $70-$100 a person for a meal, I wouldn’t expect to walk into a bathroom that has the cheap metal stall partitions that have purse hooks missing or falling off and lose locking mechanisms.

They ran out of potatoes and just left the plate empty and told us they ran out. Lol. They didn’t offer anything else or even fill it with lettuce or something, just left my plate empty. Also, our bill was over $200. Won’t be going there ever again or recommending them to anyone.

Our server would disappear, lighting was WAY too low for a family, and it was hard to get questions answered.

Unfortunately, we did not have a good experience this time for the first time. The reception on arrival was cold at best. The server was pleasant but we ended up waiting a long time for all our food courses. In fact the wait for the entree was so long the broth had boiled half way down by the time our food arrived and we had to get more to be able to cook all out food (at least 30 mins waiting). I couldn’t find a manager to complain to so I asked another server for our food because I couldn’t find our server anywhere either. The server explained that the printer had broken and all orders were having to hand written which is fine but it would have been nice for someone to come and explain the delays. We sat down at 6:30pm and did not leave till around 10pm. Overall experience for the price was not good, i do expect better and we will likely not be returning again.

He was absolutely fantastic, made every request feel welcome and kept everything moving perfectly. I’m not sure how to request we get him in the future, but I’d love for that to be the case when it’s an option.

I was not a fan of my $12 freshly squeezed margarita. Could not taste even a hint of alcohol. It’s was like drinking a glass of watered down orange juice. Felt ripped off. Staff was pleasant but the decor was dark and the whole place needs an update. Which I’m sure is not the easiest remedy these days. Example: the bathroom seemed clean but my stall had a busted TP dispenser laying on the floor and the door was loose. Overall four of us ate for about $300 (with 20% tip included) and were satisfied. Honestly don’t think I’ll be back any time soon.

Very appreciative of the vegan options and our server was very kind, but overall the service has gone downhill from what it used to be. Service was very slow, we were not checked on very often so we ran out of sauce and dippers but were done with our entrees before anyone came so we could ask for more. The manager did not stop by like they used to. After taking our credit card, our server did not return for almost 10 min. My husband had to go look for the manager to ask for our card and the bill to sign. Then he brought the check and our card but the pen didn’t work so we couldn’t sign. Again no one came so my husband had to go looking again. When you are paying this much for a celebratory meal, you except more attentive service, which is how it used to be here. Things have changed.

The cookies and cream chocolate fondue was amazing! Here are a couple photos. The first photos shows the chocolate fondue with the white being the marshmallows. The second photo is of the dessert items for dipping. Yum! The only negative was warm in the restaurant once the fondue pots started cooking. I’d recommend to management that they keep it a little cooler or ask patrons about the temperature in each area of the restaurant.

Food is good, but as you are cooking it yourself, it takes a bit of practice to get it done without being overdone. Allow enough time, doing the 4 course menu requires about 3 hours. Big issue with seating and lighting. All seats are booths with very, very low seats, such that the table is high, just below shoulders. From this low seat you can not easily see into the fondue pot. The bench is so low that you cannot easily bend your legs, but must stretch them out across the table. Both my wife and I had leg cramps and needed to stand up a few times to stretch. No option for table & chairs, or cushion to raise up. The young folks across from us were sitting on their legs to be higher. Ambient lighting okay, romantic, but you need your cell phone flashlight to see the menu, and see how done/not done the food on your plate is. I don't expect to be back, unless I hear they have renovated the place.
