The Melting Pot - Dallas - Addison Ratings and Reviews

We had a Party of 4, reservation set at 6:45. We left the restaurant @ 9:05. Service very slow. Took 20 mins to just get our water & sodas. Overrated and service and ambience wasn't what we expected. Very dark and outdated.
Server blamed the service on the kitchen which we thought was pretty funny when the kitchen doesn't cook a thing. Your food is raw and you prepare and cook your meats at your table.

Service was very very slow. The server was nice, but at one point we said our kids where really hungry and he said "well they have me working a whole bunch of tables.." so I guess too bad?
You would think it would be easy because you make your own your food at the table.. but it too a long time for the salads to come out, the drinks took forever, the meat forever, dessert a long time. With our two kids with us -- the meal took 3 hours. So be weary.

My wife and I always consider the Melting Pot one of our favorite special date night restaurants. Make sure you set aside a few hours if you're going to go with the four-course option, which I highly recommend. It's not a place to go if you are in a time crunch. If you are wanting to get away from the busyness of life and sit down and actually have a nice conversation without interruption, this is the place to go! Love everything about it. Well worth the price.

We had a great waiter, sadly his name escapes me.
Our food choices were good we started with the Wisconsin Cheddar and the Wisconsin Trio, both fantastic! We all had the California salad. The produce was fresh and the dressing was refreshing without being heavy. Our entrees were The Classic, the Surf & Turf, and two Pacific Rim. We finished with The Original and the Dark & Dulce, both fantastic choices. Where the cheese fondue had ample dippers the entree and dessert were lacking. We requested additional dippers to go with the remainder of our chocolate and it cost an additional $18.
There were eight of us and four sets of silverware were beyond dirty and two of the napkins had been used and re-rolled.
Sadly, because of the very dirty napkins and utensils coupled with the skimpy quantity, for the price, we won't be back and will seek fondue elsewhere.

We hadn't been to The Melting Pot for several years, and we reserve this meal for special occasions. I was concerned with some of the recent bad reviews, but our experience was fantastic! The staff was prompt and courteous, the food was delicious and the pacing was perfect. This is a slow-paced meal, just by it's style, but we were not left sitting with nothing to do for more than a few minutes the entire time we were there.

We had a reservation, I called a little ahead to let them know we were going to be running late due to bad weather. We got there 5 minutes after the reserved time and then had to wait another 20 minutes before getting seated. This was during a slow time and there were plenty of empty seats. Our server was amazing but it took about 30 minutes to get my drink. When I asked what was taking so long, I was told that the fountain machine was broken and they were trying to fix it. I wish they had let me know ahead of time so I could have picked something else. It also took a while to get refills. The food itself was good. I wasn't fond of the lobster which smelled too fishy, like it had been sitting out, but everything else was really tasty. THERE IS ALSO A DRESS CODE, MAKE SURE YOU ARE DRESSED BEFORE GOING.

First time going to Melting Pot. We went during Restaurant Week which was a little busy so it took time for the food to come, but the 3 course meal was great! Love the fruit and bread with the cheese. The 4 types of meats with 6 different sauces. Finally Oreo crusted and graham-crusted marshmallows to pick in melted chocolate and caramel sauce. Definitely plan to go again.

I had 4 courses meal and choose beef and duck and shirimp for the entree.
Beef and duck were not fresh and taste not good compare to the price.
Shirimp was ok.
The most thing I am complaining about is the serving time.
I came in around 6pm on Tuesday, I was not expecting long wait.
I came out from the restaurant around 8:30.
The service was too long. :(

Great place for a special occasion. We take our son here for his birthday every year for the past six years. It is a great tradition. It is nice to have a slow leisurely meal that is entertaining as well. Cooking the food at the table is a lot of fun, and a once a year treat!

The service was TERRIBLE! the guy said he has been working there for two years ... I guess he secured his spot there. I would rather have someone new who actually cared if we needed refills and actually got the things we asked for. Food was good! It always is! But good luck on not getting the server I got!

We had reservations for 7:45, we were about 10 minutes late and were not seated until around 8:30. The other 7:45 reservations were not seated either. They need to do a better job with their timing for those who made reservations. I had 2 young grandsons with me and they chose to wait. We didn't leave until 10:45! The service was a tad slow; however, I think the boys had a good time.

When we first sat down at the table my daughter put her arm down in a big glob of chocolate that got all over her sweater. The hostess gave us menu, which were dirty (they had food all over them and they were sticky) and left. About 10 minutes laters we received water from a busboy. Ten minutes later our waiter arrived whom we found to be delightful. He was one of two waiters and he had tables all over the restaurant. The slower service was not his fault and he definitely saved the night! He was well informed, charismatic and paid special attention to our children. The food was good and the experience was priceless for our kids. I ordered the Surf and Turf and when the waiter served it he told me it was Conneticut lobster. Hmmm...I never had a Connecticut lobster ;). I would say this restaurant should pay closer attention to the smaller details (wiping down their menus daily, keeping the bathroom well maintained, scrubbing scuff marks off the walls etc...) so that diners are not distracted by these type of easy to fix items. I also think they should schedule more waitstaff so that the waiters don't have to run around like chickens with their heads cut off. We would most likely return for a special occasion and we hope that we just caught them on an off night.

My wife and I hadn't been to The Melting Pot in some time so it was nice to celebrate my bride's birthday there. There are new menu choices that give everyone some great choices for dinner. The wine was great, service too. Overall we had a wonderful time and will return again.

Very Rude Service - We showed up right on time for our 7:00 pm reservation and checked in at the hostess stand. At 7:15, I politely asked the hostess what the delay was and she proceeded to make an excuse about other parties getting there before me, etc. I explained that I had a 7:00 pm reservation and the restaurant was nearly empty, so I had expected to be seated already. She rudely told me to wait and she would seat me when our table was ready. Finally, close to 7:30 we were seated. I asked to speak with a manager, so I could explain to him my dissatisfaction. Somewhere close to 8:00 pm he came to our table and I pulled him aside to explain what happened. It was falling on deaf ears and more excuses; it was obvious he had been briefed by the hostess staff, so was prepared with the excuses. The waiter was fine, so I tipped him properly, but the hostess staff and manager would be the reason I will never come here again.

The food was great!The staff was friendly but my biggest complaint is that we had made a reservation for 7:30pm, almost two weeks beforehand, but had to wait an hour after our reservation time before we received a table.

one burner on table was too hot and the other too cool. Server was always moving a person aside to re adjust the burners. Something was wrong with one of the cheeses, so he went to make another batch, but was gone so long the other batch started to burn, before he even got back to make the other

We've dined at Melting Pot many times as a party of 4 and enjoyed it, but our experience with a larger group of 7 was horrible. One of the cook surfaces built into the table didn't heat correctly so half the table was finished eating by the time the other half could start cooking. Manager came over and didn't care. Terrible service and definitely not a good spot for a special occasion or large group.

There was a brunch menu option listed on their website. It was not available at 12:30 on Sunday afternoon at the Addison location. The only option was their dinner menu which was too heavy and way too expensive for lunch. No wonder the place was empty!
