I didn't like the experience. The food was bland as well as the dipping sauces. I prefer the bar food.. So if I go back it will be in the bar

The option to order a balloon bouquet (among other choices) was fantastic. My wife was so thrilled when we arrived at our table. We were located in a secluded table in the back. She didn't see a single other patron - we could hear others quietly talking nearby. Very romantic! The best meal of our lives!

This is an place for a date. They have these really secluded couples tables where you can't see anyone else. The food is very good. Come ready to spend about 125 dollars for a couple. More if you want to get drinks. You definitely want to get the 4 course meal.
The service was amazing! It was a great mother's day afternoon because it our grown kids and family to get together for a couple of hours of catching up and visiting. Really made "Mom" feel special.
Nice romantic getaway
This is a nice romantic getaway but they are kind of stingy on the food and very pricey. It would be nice if they had an add on to the menu for an all you can eat, or maybe a double portion option. When I spend $100 or more just for two of us to go out to eat, I expect to walk away groaning and holding my stomach. Other than that an excellent romantic place to get away. Four out of five stars.

We went for the "girls night" but missed ALL the drawings and fun. No one told us that we had to be there by a certain time, we thought if you had an open reservation it was okay. We also were not told that "cocktails" were not $5 like advertised. Only 1 is $5. False advertising. The servers made up for this, as they were awesome, but we were disappointed!
Ladies Night Out
The special first Thursday of the month Ladies Night Out was fun. Very interesting vendors with no pressure to buy (but of course, we did). Slow paced made it fun to enjoy each course of food. Great samples of food instead of having to choose just one. Really a fun night and chocolate martinis to DIE FOR!

It made for a really nice romantic date. I really enjoyed the food and atmosphere. I got the ultimate romance package which really gave it a more romantic appeal. The scattered rose petals and the roses were a great touch. And the champagne was good. Would definitely recommend to a friend for a nice romantic dinner or for a group date night.
We had an awesome experience!!
I took my son here since he never had fondue before, so I thought the Melting Pot would be a great first experience for him. We had an awesome waitress and the food was great! I will definitely come her again!! My daughter and I have been here before on a ladies night out and will come again on another ladies night out. If you are looking for an experience in dining, this is the place to go.
Great meal, slow service
Normally I love this restaurant. But this particular visit, the service was SO slow. We typically spend 2 hours there and this visit took over 3 for the same food we always get. They had all you can eat that night but because of the slow service we didn't get more than one entree and dessert. Such a disappointment, since we usually can do double everything in 2 hours. This is a great restaurant, but I expect better service when spending over $100.
I set up the Ultimate Romance package for his birthday; he was created by the hostess with "Happy Birthday", and the roses, petals, chilled champagne table side was perfect! Service and food are excellent; booth private and romantic. Topped off with a picture at the end to keep!! Perfect night. <3
perfect setting, perfect service!
Everything was perfect! From the seating in a private booth to the service and presentation . We had the two can dine deal and it was a TON of food. Hope to visit again soon!

Very nice dinner. Service was spot on! They had other people circling the restaurant to ensure nothing went unnoticed.
My family & I have only been to the Melting Pot a few times so this ends up being a real treat for us on special occasions. The dining experience is like no other. A wonderful meal is accompanied by an entertaining experience. We took my parents, who had never been before, and they had so much fun cooking different food and fondue/broth combinations.
Perfect for a romantic night out!

Great restaurant for date night.
This place is a great experience. The food is good and it is expensive but the ambiance is great and the privacy is amazing. The service is good and it is very nice to relax and enjoy each other.
We had a great time at the Melting Pot. We visited TMP because we'd gone to Simply Fondue in downtown Fort Worth the week before and the experience was awful. I remembered how much we always enjoyed TMP -- and it was great! Service was awesome. Food was great. We just had the best time for my husband's birthday lunch!
Girls Night Out
It was perfect for friends to have dinner, some drinks, and to celebrate a birthday.
Food and service good; value moderate
The restaurant is easy to find and nicely decorated. The menu is a little confusing and our waitperson could have done a better job explaining the options to us, and because they were a little confusing, we ordered more than we could eat (and paid more than we should have).

We've been to The Melting Pot on several occasions. Interaction with the food and the pacing of the meal adds a unique element you just don't get at traditional restaurants. There's just enough energy, but not so much that you can't have a conversation.
Nice, but not a have to go kind of place...
The restaurant was nice and the service was good, but not a place we would go regularly unless it was just for appetizers or dessert. The flavors on the entrees were okay, but really did not justify such a high tab. If we wanted to go somewhere for a fun snack or a great way to end the night with dessert, this would be it, but for an overall experience at this price point...Many other places we would go.
We celebrated our daughters 22nd bday at the melting pot. She loved the drinks, food and atmosphere. We all enjoyed the wonderful yet attentive hostess and waitstaff. Our youngest also enjoyed the food too! There were plentiful options to appease all our pallets. The waitstaff explained everything exceptionally well. All around great food, excellent service, friendly professional knowledgeable waitstaff. We all did the 4 course meal absolutely amazing! We are so happy it was a great place to celebrate our daughters bday!
We dined in 'lovers-lane' and had a lovely evening. The bar tender made a great mojito for me and we enjoyed the Crave Combo and added the Premium Cheese Dippers. Plenty of food! We always get a four course meal, and feel like we need to be rolled out of the restaurant. The crave combo was delicious and we didn't feel stuffed.
Need to staff for busy nights
The Melting Pot called me at least twice to confirm my reservation. Despite this, they placed us in the bar by the door, then proceeded basically to ignore us until I asked for a waiter. Service all night was slow and I had to ask twice for help. We were not there for any special occasion, but it would have been disappointing if we had been.
Great for a special occasion
Everything's no was fantastic and the bill made sure appreciated how fantastic it was. Perfect aside from the lightened wallet.
Every intimate dinner
Melting Pot Arlington has become the only special occasion dining choice for my wife and me. The ambiance, service, and food always deliver.
Romantic evening, we were served the wrong desert
Gave us the wrong desert, smores, then admitted to it, brought us the correct one also, left us both, it was great

Server seemed in a bad mood, forced conversations with us and didn't bother to check back about the food quality or our needs such as more "dippers" for our cheese or chocolate. As always the chocolate was tasty but barely warm enough when the waiter stepped away; the cheese was barely average.
Perfect for dates and special occasions!

Mainly for a romantic spot
Went for Valentine's. Wait wasn't bad, server was very nice, salad was delicious, cheese was great, dessert was plentiful, but the entrees did not fill at all. I filled up more on desserts than anything only because the meats were small. Tiny portions and bad quality steaks. The lobster was great, but pork/chicken/steak rated lower than a cheap chili's meal. Was very disappointed but I'm really hoping it was a one time deal. Maybe they had to sacrifice quality for the huge amount of people, but definitely was not worth the $250 tab. This was my third time at the melting pot, but first time to this one in Arlington. The food is better at the Dallas locations. Again, maybe it was just a bad day or bad location. I recommend everyone to go at least once. They're usually amazing.
not worth the money
My boyfriend and I went for vday day and we paid extra to sit In lovers lane which was 200.we where seated in just near the right entrance of the lane which I was not expecting. I had booked these reservations a month and a half in advance so I guess I didn't expect to be seated right there. Anyways the booth and the table were tiny tiny. I had barely any room to reach the pot for my fondue. My boyfriend and I thought the cheese was the best part hut that probably about it. It was noisy and since we were sitting right by the door all we kept hearing from the waiters was "corner " I just wasn't very pleased with much. But I will say our server was so sweet and attentive.
Took my parents for wedding anniversary & some fanily, they loved it! Now they are recommending it to others. I will be back for sure!
Nice experience but overpriced
The service was exceptional. Our waitress was super nice and detailed regarding the menu. The food was okay - at best. The decor was tacky which was not easy to look at. The restaurant has poor ventilation. The smell when we walked in was intense and it didn't get better. I guess the entire place is basically a kitchen which means their ventilation should be better. It's a different experience and it's fun, but it's overpriced and you could eat yummier food elsewhere.
Makes a great night
Always fun coming here, if anything this place does really well is it makes people talk given that everyone east communally, so much fun
Need more than one bartender took almost 30 to 45 min minimum to get a drink the table was not cleared between dinner and dessert for almost 45 min. Waiter did his best and food was excellent
Seemed to take a long time between courses especially from the salads to the entrees and the entrees to the desserts, otherwise it was a very nice experience.
Fun and delicious.
Great place for a celebration, a bit pricey for day to day. Everything was exceptional including the service. They are great at explaining the choices and pairings. Rolled myself out after a four course meal, smiling the whole time.
Off menu items
We enjoyed our waitress because she gave us items that were not on the menu. We got to try a cheese that we had not tried before and we have been over 20 times.
Delicious and great service
We had a great experience and the food was great! Our server was very attentive and friendly.
