 (Washington DC)·Dined 6 days ago

Jeff, our server, was OUTSTANDING!! His knowledge of the restaurant, menu items, ability to make changes/recommendations to suit our needs, and overall attitude was FABULOUS. We visited another Melting Pot location recently and had written off going again because it was not a pleasant experience. The Arlington location, due to Jeff's service, will be the one we visit again when we want to come to The Melting Pot. Kudos to Jeff for making our evening (celebrating a family birthday with 9 people, including 4 active kids!) memorable.

 (Washington DC)·Dined 7 days ago

We were seated promptly but waited quite a long time for anyone to come to our table. We thought they forgot about us and we were correct. When a waitress finally arrived she apologized and told us that she just received our table ticket. Then the manager came over and apologized but never offered us anything (a dessert, drink, something!). After that the service was good until the end of the entree course when our waitress disappeared. I had to ask a woman sweeping up the floors (they were very dirty) to get our waitress because we wanted dessert. The food was okay...meat had some fat and gristle on it and the chunks were huge. With only one knife per person, I had to cut the raw meat because it wouldn't cook through being so large, then wipe the knife so I could cut the cooked meat. Since the concept itself is fun, we enjoyed our time talking and hanging out in spite of the poor service. If you want fondue, go but keep your expectations low so you won't be disappointed.

 (Baltimore)·Dined 7 days ago

The server was very inattentive. It was at least 15 minutes after our food was served that the server even came by to check on us. By that time most in the party were in need of drink refills. The service was also incredibly slow. Additionally items that the waiter offered and we requested be brought to the table, such as additional sauces, were not brought until we asked for them a second time. This Melting Pot experience was the worst I had ever experienced and was certainly not up to their normal standard.

 (Washington DC)·Dined 7 days ago

I always enjoy the food at the melting pot. Myself and my wife always go here for our anniversary. The one thing i do not like is that you do not get asked if you would like a private area unless you buy a package from them. We were seated in the bar area. It was noisy and busy. This was our 8 year anniversary and was far from romantic.

Not everyone has the money to splurge on the packages on top of the high prices you pay for your meal. There should be an option when making your reservation that you could choose a more private area. The bar area should be reserved for larger parties that are going to be more noisy.

The food was good but the ambiance left much to be desired.

 (Washington DC)·Dined on November 6, 2016

The melting pot has become an annual tradition for my best friend's and my birthday (which we share!). It's great fun for a group of 7-8 to spend a few hours devouring fantastic foods and drinks. Among the wines on their list are several of my favorite local Virginia wineries, which I really appreciate. The service has always been fantastic and they do a great job of making it special for us birthday girls.

 (Washington DC)·Dined on November 1, 2016

I've been going to the Melting Pot for years and it's just as great every time. I would recommend it for birthdays, business meetings, family get togethers, and date night. Be prepared to set aside time for it though, the courses could take well over 2 hours to get through! My only issue is the consistency of the servers checking on the tables. I understand it may be hard to check on you since the waiters have to cater to many tables and personalize the experience, but it can be difficult to get simple things such as drink refills!

 (Washington DC)·Dined on September 27, 2016

As always, food was spectacular. I mean, you cook it yourself, but the selection is always great. Being able to substitute certain meats for something else or 'can I get this instead of that' is fantastic. I think it says a lot when you are able to substitute something and there isn't a big issue. We were able to get more dippers as well (I am not one to say no to extra brownies for my chocolate).

Service was better than I've ever had at a Melting Pot. Eli, our main server was great, as well as the helper he had with him. She was wonderful to chat with whenever they came by to bring us another course or check on us. The manager, David I believe, was good as well! He came by a few times to check on us and wish us a happy anniversary.

The space itself is just ok. I wish it had more of a premium feel to it like some of the other locations do. I think it needs a bit of an update. Everything was also too bright and I wanted it a bit more romantic.

Overall, it was wonderful! Will definitely go back to this location!

 (Washington DC)·Dined on September 2, 2016

First time Melting Pot diner. Service staff was excellent...walked us through the entire process with very clear explanations. We artived early to our appointment and was still sested immediately with no issues. We had the 4-course meal...cheese (initial course) was our least favorite. The 2d course - salad - was standard for most restaurants. The 'classic' meat selection (3rd course) was OK, but the last course was excellent and our favorite - the chocolate dip.

In our future trips we will probably come back for just the chocolate course.

I was a little disappointed that the booths were not more sheltered and private. I had in mind a romantic setting and it wasn't that at all - so while not private - it would be an OK location for a family or multiple couples.
