The Melting Pot - Arlington VA
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.
We like going to the Melting Pot for special occasions. It was a bit noisy this time because of a large party. Also, they have started a Grill cooking option but do not have the ventilation system set up to take care of all the smoke. Regardless, we will return again as we enjoy the unique menu and options.
We had a large gathering for my daughter's 22nd Birthday. My daughter invited guests that I had not RSVP'd for. The staff was gracious enough to allow us to use a table that had been reserved for another party. Our host Stephanie was AMAZING, patient, courteous, knowledgeable and helpful.
Thank you for making my daughter's party a memorable occasion.
Great customer service and good food. Definitely we will be back.
Too expensive for mediocre food. The cheese fondue was not good, the fruit to dip in chocolate fondue was not fresh. The meats were good though but for the price I expected top quality.
I've gone twice to the Melting Pot over the last couple of months. I wouldn't recommend going on Valentine's Day because it's almost twice as expensive and the options are so limited. I would suggest going on a non holiday. The kids loved it and their are many more options for everyone to choose from. It was fun and delicious!
Excellent value for date night. Excellent courteous and friendly service. Everything was delicious as usual. We only wish the melting pot would offer all you can eat cheese, so you can try a variety of different cheeses.
I took my two sons (ages 8 & 13) there for an early Valentines date and they absolutely loved it. Our server was incredible making their first experience there to be a lot of fun (so bummed I forget his name!).
It was my granddaughters first time with fondue. We loved it.
Great night out of Galentine’s Day!
Service was extremely slow, drinks were hardly ever refilled and too long to clear stuff and receive each corse.
We had a party of 11 to celebrate the birthdays of my son and daughter. Our server Mike was friendly and knowledgeable, and he was great with everyone. The food was excellent, and I would highly recommend the Melting Pot for any special occasion.
Food as always was excellent. Service was not good. Our server was not very present and forgot we were there. He appeared to be much more interested in the table of girls that he was also waiting on. Took forever for our crazy requests - like a fork or a soda.
Menu was confusing and food was way overpriced.
Restaurant was very pretty.
Our waiter Anthony was amazing! Very attentive and friendly! We eat here often and it was great to see one of the waiters is now a manager (don’t remember his name but young guy/ponytail), and he was outstanding in his new role!
This location never disappoints! Food always fresh and drinks on point!
Food and Service were excellent. Fun evening.
Anthony was a great server - very friendly and helped the meal move along at a good pace. There were more kids around than I would have liked - it would be nice to sit families together and alow those on a date night to be closer to a quiet area.
Delicious food, fun experience! Highly recommend!!
Couldn’t find out server for almost 30 mins. Found bug in our chocolate service overall was not good.
Food was good, cheese not as good as expected, and dining proved to be a little messy on the very small tables they had, but great service from the waiter Jeremy, and a pleasant experience!
We have been here several times. It is always a fun experience and great service.
It had been awhile since I’ve been to the Melting Pot and I was really impressed with how good the food was. Did the Cajun fillet, Cajun chicken, Cajun shrimp and andouille sausage with the Majo cooking style. There was a lot more more favors than I remembered form my previous visit. it was awesome favors. My wife had the duck and loved it. We will be back.
Our waiter, Mike, made our dining experience great. He ensured all our pots and dippers were gluten free and we had plenty of them.
Once again, we had a relaxing and marvelous meal at The Melting Pot. The service was timely without being obtrusive, the ambience was quiet enough that we could have a conversation without yelling to be heard, and the food was excellent.
Great food & service, but prices keep going up and up. I'll think long and hard before coming back with a party of five that cost over $320 on our latest visit. If money isn't an issue, this is a wonderful place to eat. Also, plan to spend well over 2 hours for the meal - plan accordingly! B-)
Server and food were both great as always!
The Service was Truly EXCELLENT and the food was fun and delicious!
Great dinner. It was my boyfriend's first time so it was fun introducing him to my favorite restaurant!
The food is always great and the waiters are always very knowledgeable about the menu, but be prepared to spend 2 to 2.5 hours there. I understand it is meant to be a dining experience but I would appreciate the waiter coming around and checking in with us more often.
It was our first time there and heard so many great things about Melting Pot. Our waiter was amazing to us and helped us understand how this ordering thing works. The food was good but some of them needed more flavors in it but we will be coming back to try something else.
Portions were too small. There is no way a pot can serve 3 adults unless they are having a drink, an appetizer, salad and other things plus dessert. It was a huge disappointment for the 9 of us as this was a birthday celebration. I would definitely think twice before going there again. For the money, it was a poor deal.
Not the best dining experience. Server was not very engaged with the table and did not do much explaining of the menu. There was a lot of confusion and dietary restrictions were not addressed or accommodated. Even when I asked to speak with a manager, the manager seemed very uninterested in our pointers and concerns. It was one of my guests birthday, so the overall experience was just poor and honestly disappointing.
Waitress was very slow and messy. Was there for my birthday with my newborn
We loved it
