The Melting Pot - Arlington VA
We had a fabulous family dinner celebrating my daughter’s 11th birthday. Supper fun for the kids. Our waiter was great and the food was yummy. They also brought out a special bday dessert!
Super nice as usual!
Not worth a $120 tab. It would have been even more if it wasn't on wine night.
A good value with the Groupon. Otherwise, a little expensive
We normally love this location but this visit was not our best. The food was still excellent, but the server was very forgetful. He was nice, but had to be reminded of things quite frequently, which got a little frustrating.
I loved the food and creativity however i booked a table online I especially mention it would be my wife birthday but looks like noone cares it is special occasion also the and server wasn’t helpful for someone who’s first time there
I was kinda disappointed personally and embarrassed in front my wife because I expected someone at least says happy birthday to my wife but nothing..!!
It has been quite a while since we have been to Melting Pot. The dinner was very nice and the servicer was very personable.
Went to Melting Pot to celebrate a birthday. The site was chosen by the birthday person. It was very festive and we enjoyed the food and service very much.
The restaurant is very dark so we were fortunate to get a seat near the street where the blinds were open.
Excellent meal and fun atmosphere.
The waiter dropped and broke a glass, not that big of deal, gave us the wrong bottle of wine not that big of a deal either then dropped a full tray of dishes and glasses on my head, which broke all over the floor and they did move us to a different table but all the broken glass scared my niece so a crying child and sore head was the last nail in the coffin then a $250 bill to top off the night was ridiculous on behalf of the Melting pot, second visit there in a month and I won’t be back
Birthday pre-theater dinner and dessert excellence!!
The food is just ok. Not worth the money. The entree ia very small and its hard to determine if the food is cooked really. They provide very small portions of meat and shrimp. Took 4 hours for dinner!! Wayyt to long to be sitting at a table.
We went to The Melting Pot for a special date night. Our individual server was fantastic and personable. The remainder of the staff was ok. The service and ambience were a bit lacking for the type of dinner and price. When going to The Melting Pot in Atlanta and elsewhere, there seemed to be more personalized and deliberate effort placed into customer service. All in all, it was a decent experience and good food.
Made a reservation with Open Table. Left very late from my house. Encountered traffic and was nearly 1 hour late for reservation. Fortunately, the hostesses were very accommodating and there were plenty of tables available. The rest of the evening was Melting Pot fabulous!
Food recommendations were okay, but I went for my anniversary during restaurant week so the value to food quality was fine. Had I paid full price my expectations for service and food quality would have been much higher.
This eating experience was everything I could ever want and more. You eat slowly, and every course is well sized. Mike was a joy as our server. So incredibly glad we tried this for restaurant week.
Good food, good service. All around great experience.
We enjoyed our time until we discovered that my daughters bracelet fell in the restaurant. We called as soon as realized it was left there.. It’s clear that one of the employees took it, but everyone says they didn’t see it.
Loved waitress Tamara! Great personality and fun to talk to
We love the Arlington Melting Pot! We feel like we are always treated special and the food, hands down, BEST of any restaurant we go to!!!! Great service and management. We could not have had a better experience or have been more satisfied!
very unique restaurant and dining experience. xxxx
Five of us had a nice time. It is all about the company and the time shared with food.
We had a great time and the food was delicious as always. Our server, Steve, was fantastic and he even gave me a birthday surprise which was very much appreciated :-)
Great momma daughter dinner. Friendly service and fun experience. Lots of choices.
Server was incredibly slow. It took over 3 hours and we had to skip the desert course. It wasn’t busy at all. She just spent a lot of time at each table telling stories and chatting to the detriment of all other customers. When we tipped only 10%, she asked what was wrong. We told her service was too slow and she threw a fit. Actually tossed the bill on the floor and commented that she didn’t even want to clean our table now. I steered my young daughter away quickly to avoid seeing it. Food was amazing and we may return but would not accept same server.
Always a great meal and experience.
put instructions to do flowers and picture for an extra 25$
they did none of it
and waiter visited our table a whole 2 times all night
lucky I always tip good
Would not recommend. Food is only eatable and not worth the price you pay.
The server was amazing . This was birthday celebration and the birthday boy had never had the melting pot before. However the grill idea is horrible . It’s just unseasoned dry meat.
Always a solid choice. Good service. Excellent food. It's a lot of fun.
Great Experience and date night
Great food, great service. This is always a favorite. It is getting more expensive. $200 for three people is higher than I would like to pay. Great for special occasions, but spendy.
I have not been to the Melting Pot in over 10 years and was excited to go back, but sadly it has gone downhill.
One of our appetizer plates had not been washed well and had chocolate all over it. Then my brother’s salad had a metal bracket in it (!!!) Thankfully he saw it before biting into it but the waiter didn’t apologize. The manager DID later come back and apologize and told my brother that his drinks were on him, but when the bill came his drinks were still on the bill. The table didn’t have enough cutlery and we didn’t see our waiter very often so I had to get up and get a roll of silverware from the next table. The food was good but not good enough to make up for the rest of the experience.
Just hot, and the food is pretty lame. Japanese steak houses are a better show and less expensive.
Our waiter was amazing, very kind, and attentive. The food was delicious! It is pricey but so fun for a special occasion.
It was great for a nice Tuesday night bday dinner. Great waiter.
I go to the melting pot every year for my birthday and it has never disappointed me! Will keep coming back for many years to come!
We couldn't have had better service from the moment we walked in and with our waitress constantly providing the best service. Food was delicious.
