We had a great time. Our waiter was very helpful in going over the menu with us and making sure we understood the cooking times for the different meats. The food was fantastic. Defiantly an adults only type atmosphere perfect for a special occasion. It is a bit pricy but the groupon helped.

It had been years since we had been to a Melting Pot, and our experience this time was even better than we remembered! Having a rare night out without the kids, we decided to do something special. We made our reservations last minute, and we glad we were able to get a table! We chose the 4 course meal, and took the waiter's suggestion of the pear and gorgonzola salad - it was amazing! We also had the classic fondue cheese course, and did the select your own for dinner. I had salmon, duck, and teriyaki beef - all were outstanding! - while my husband chose the orange chicken, salmon, and pot stickers. For dinner we selected white chocolate, and upgraded our dipping options to include the cheesecake. The entire meal was phenomenal, and we wish we had one close to home!

We found this restaurant through Groupon and decided to try it out for an early Sunday dinner. It was a wonderful experience! The food was absolutely delicious, and we both left feeling very full and content. Service was superb. It was our first time trying fondue, so our server was very helpful with her advice and suggestions. We appreciated the quietness and privatized tables, there was a comfortable and intimate atmosphere to the restaurant. I highly recommend The Melting Pot for a romantic night out.

Overall it was a good experience. I went there for a second date and my date is on a restricted diet and I wanted to do something fun and creative . When WefWe first arrived ItI told the host we have a reservation . Our table wasnt ready yet so we went to the bar. We couldn't transfer the ticket to our dinner so that was a bit frustrating . Then We were told our table was ready and it wasnt. My date ordered another glass of wine but after 10 mins IhI had to go to the bar and get it. It was a great place but the service is lacking a bit

Had a wonderful time! Me and my boyfriend always love to get fondue and found a groupon to this place. Not only was it a great deal, it was a great time! We felt like we had a team of people helping with our table and the manager even gave us chocolate covered strawberries after dinner! So sweet.

It was our first time dining at the Melting Pot, so we used a groupon we purchased. It was my husband's birthday, so I thought it would be a good time to try the restaurant. We were very pleased with the food and will definitely go back for it, but our server was rather rude. He was working with another server (not sure who was training and who wasn't) and constantly acted as though he was an actor in a play. Further, he had to constantly give us "lessons" and "rules" which were fine when we didn't know what we were doing in the beginning, but just became rude after we were already dining and well aware of how the pots worked. He constantly came over to instruct us on not burning ourselves (although we were already doing as told) and at one point straight disciplined us for accidentally leaving the ladle in the pot (which we apologized for). He spoke to us differntly than he did the table next to us despite them doing the same things and I understand we look young, but at twenty-eight years old you do not need to demean us as if you are superior. On the other hand, the manager was incredibly helpful and pleasant, as well as the rest of the staff, so we will be back, we just do not want him as our server.

I would come back for dessert only it was the only part of the meal I really enjoyed and the taste and was good.
The whole idea is exceptional but for the price it is way to expensive for what you get .
If it was me I would serve the salad appetizer main course then use the dessert as the fondue fun . But the staff and atmop ere was awesome.
You might not takemy suggestions but I probly will not recommend except for coffee and dessert that is all was good and worth it thanks

The melting pot is Soooo much better than simply fondue! The restaurant was very clean, open, and comfortable. Everyone was friendly from the door staff to the busboys. We even arrived an hour early for our reservation, and the manager was more than happy to seat us. We will definitely be here from now on to get our fondue fix!

We had the ulitmate romance experience at the Melting Pot in Addison 4 years ago and then again a few days ago at the location in Arlington. The Arlington location seems a bit down scale from the experience we had in Addison. We were treated better and were served actual champagne in Addison, where as were served Cupcake Proseco in Arlington, but charged the same amount for both experiences. The seating is more cramped in Arlington and the ambiance is not as romantic in Arlington. I will go back to the Melting Pot but I will drive to the location in Addison and bypass the one in Arlington. The one in Arlington seems better suited for a night out with a group of friends rather than a romantic dinner package. I did not feel we got our money's worth and we spent over $200 dollars on this dinner.

We took my mom for her birthday and it was our first visit. She really enjoyed herself, by speaking with her know we agree that it's a special occasion dining option only. The value is not all there for the cost and food options. We did like the experience it offers in that it gets you connected with the people you are dining with. You aren't waiting on your food to come out (since you're doing the cooking) so there is no internet surfing.

I thought that everything was amazing until I went to pay the check. The ran my card for a different tables check that was much higher than mine then ran my card again without asking me first, resulting in a huge bill on my card until they could refund it. It was irritating but I could have gotten over it, .... If the table next to us hadn't had the exact same thing happen. Not sure where the break down was, because the service was awesome, but it made me nervous that they were obviously having trouble with their money side.

I always love going to the Melting Pot. The service far surpasses some of their direct competitors, and the menu is so much more robust. Although I've had the meat course before, we always opt to stick with the cheese and chocolate fondue only. There's an italian meat add-on with the cheese that makes you feel like you got the meat without the waiting.

We went to The Melting Pot for Restaurant Week. We went to the Arlington location which seemed to have a much better Restaurant Week menu that the other one. We were not disappointed.
We had a fun time, tried new things and they were able to accommodate our peanuts & shellfish allergies. We had cheese, meat and dessert fondues. Everything was delicious and we thought the meat sauces selection was the highlight.
We will be back and the girls are talking about taking in some of their specialty nights.
