This was me and my cousins first time at The Melting Pot, we truly enjoyed ourselves. The restaurant was very nice and elegant, the atmosphere was very mellow. The server was so nice and polite and the food was great. I would recommend everyone try this place at least once so you can experience the comfort and hospitality and of course the food, also the guys that traded out the pots were also polite and hospitable. This place has excellent customer service kudos to The Melting Pot!!

The Melting Pot is one of my favorite locations for a night out. If you've never been...dinner takes about 2 hours. It doesn't seem like 2 hours. It really goes by fast, but don't plan on running in for a quick bite. The food is amazing. Our service was superb! Definitely a place we will go again!

The staff here was amazing. We did have one waitress, but everyone was willing to help and check up on us throughout our dinner. One con I do have to point out is that our drinks did take forever to get to us, but they were still delicious.
Left After Appetizers
Its a concept that really needs to be brought in to the 2016's. They bring you RAW chicken, or meat, and YOU cook it yourself, and you pay them twice as much for cooking your own food. If I wanted to cook my own food, I would have stayed home. Anyway, we had two appetizer fondues and left. If they cant lightly toast the bread to dip it in, and one of the fondues was clearly missing flavor, we were afraid what the next course would bring. Place was practically empty on a Saturday night, so we weren't the only ones thinking this is crazy.
Paul was a fantastic server. He was full of energy, recommendations and made our dining experience very memorable.
The manger greeted us right away due to our server Ryan assisting another table. He took time to go over the menu and made some cost saving options without us even asking. Ryan and Wolfie are excellent servers and everyone who touched our table was eager to ask questions or accommodate any items requested.

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.
