The Melting Pot - Arlington VA
The food was great as well as our server! The ambiance could be better since the music was pop & too loud for nice, long dinner. Also, the restaurant was freezing cold!
We celebrated our 6th anniversary at the restaurant, and the entire staff was amazing. Our waitress made incredible recommendations, and we had an amazing time.
Delicious experience, my girl and I absolutely enjoyed each course, the wine was top notch, the ambience was perfect, dimmer lighting and intimate, private booth. Perfect date night! We will definitely be back!
Our waitress Sara was so friendly and nice, she had us laughing and made our dinner very enjoyable. Chris the manager was also very helpful and nice. The environment is just so welcoming, the food is delicious and the service is wonderful.
We attended The Melting Pot for my son 18th birthday. I paid for the ballon package in which I thought the balloons were going to be the ones they had on the website but wasn’t which was disappointing. Our waiter was always in a rush when we tired to order, in which we did state to her this our first time here. She could had been alittle more considered and patient with us. I don’t know if I would return to this location if so I wouldn’t want her to be my waiter I don’t forget faces. And for this to be my son 18th birthday celebration a very special day he wasn’t all that pleased
Always a fun experience
The Melting Pot experience is always enjoyable if you are in the mood for an interactive and somewhat chaotic evening. The cuts of meat are good and the food is always tasty - if somewhat overpriced. Some of the serving logistics could be improved (it doesn't do much good to have two varieties of cheese, cooking oil or chocolate when only half the table can reach the respective pots). Also, the inside burner is inaccessible to the wait staff. Finally the skewers tend to lose the meat/shrimp/fruit, etc. especially with multiple parties trying to cook/dip. Still, all in all, it is a novel experience for a special occasion.
Lots of families with children on Friday night so would suggest another day of week if you prefer a quieter environment.
Joe was an excellent server, food was good, and we had a lovely evening!
We had a fabulous family dinner celebrating my daughter’s 11th birthday. Supper fun for the kids. Our waiter was great and the food was yummy. They also brought out a special bday dessert!
Super nice as usual!
Not worth a $120 tab. It would have been even more if it wasn't on wine night.
A good value with the Groupon. Otherwise, a little expensive
We normally love this location but this visit was not our best. The food was still excellent, but the server was very forgetful. He was nice, but had to be reminded of things quite frequently, which got a little frustrating.
I loved the food and creativity however i booked a table online I especially mention it would be my wife birthday but looks like noone cares it is special occasion also the and server wasn’t helpful for someone who’s first time there
I was kinda disappointed personally and embarrassed in front my wife because I expected someone at least says happy birthday to my wife but nothing..!!
It has been quite a while since we have been to Melting Pot. The dinner was very nice and the servicer was very personable.
Went to Melting Pot to celebrate a birthday. The site was chosen by the birthday person. It was very festive and we enjoyed the food and service very much.
The restaurant is very dark so we were fortunate to get a seat near the street where the blinds were open.
Excellent meal and fun atmosphere.
The waiter dropped and broke a glass, not that big of deal, gave us the wrong bottle of wine not that big of a deal either then dropped a full tray of dishes and glasses on my head, which broke all over the floor and they did move us to a different table but all the broken glass scared my niece so a crying child and sore head was the last nail in the coffin then a $250 bill to top off the night was ridiculous on behalf of the Melting pot, second visit there in a month and I won’t be back
Birthday pre-theater dinner and dessert excellence!!
The food is just ok. Not worth the money. The entree ia very small and its hard to determine if the food is cooked really. They provide very small portions of meat and shrimp. Took 4 hours for dinner!! Wayyt to long to be sitting at a table.
We went to The Melting Pot for a special date night. Our individual server was fantastic and personable. The remainder of the staff was ok. The service and ambience were a bit lacking for the type of dinner and price. When going to The Melting Pot in Atlanta and elsewhere, there seemed to be more personalized and deliberate effort placed into customer service. All in all, it was a decent experience and good food.
Made a reservation with Open Table. Left very late from my house. Encountered traffic and was nearly 1 hour late for reservation. Fortunately, the hostesses were very accommodating and there were plenty of tables available. The rest of the evening was Melting Pot fabulous!
Food recommendations were okay, but I went for my anniversary during restaurant week so the value to food quality was fine. Had I paid full price my expectations for service and food quality would have been much higher.
This eating experience was everything I could ever want and more. You eat slowly, and every course is well sized. Mike was a joy as our server. So incredibly glad we tried this for restaurant week.
Good food, good service. All around great experience.
We enjoyed our time until we discovered that my daughters bracelet fell in the restaurant. We called as soon as realized it was left there.. It’s clear that one of the employees took it, but everyone says they didn’t see it.
Loved waitress Tamara! Great personality and fun to talk to
We love the Arlington Melting Pot! We feel like we are always treated special and the food, hands down, BEST of any restaurant we go to!!!! Great service and management. We could not have had a better experience or have been more satisfied!
very unique restaurant and dining experience. xxxx
Five of us had a nice time. It is all about the company and the time shared with food.
We had a great time and the food was delicious as always. Our server, Steve, was fantastic and he even gave me a birthday surprise which was very much appreciated :-)
Great momma daughter dinner. Friendly service and fun experience. Lots of choices.
Server was incredibly slow. It took over 3 hours and we had to skip the desert course. It wasn’t busy at all. She just spent a lot of time at each table telling stories and chatting to the detriment of all other customers. When we tipped only 10%, she asked what was wrong. We told her service was too slow and she threw a fit. Actually tossed the bill on the floor and commented that she didn’t even want to clean our table now. I steered my young daughter away quickly to avoid seeing it. Food was amazing and we may return but would not accept same server.
Always a great meal and experience.
put instructions to do flowers and picture for an extra 25$
they did none of it
and waiter visited our table a whole 2 times all night
lucky I always tip good
Would not recommend. Food is only eatable and not worth the price you pay.
The server was amazing . This was birthday celebration and the birthday boy had never had the melting pot before. However the grill idea is horrible . It’s just unseasoned dry meat.
Always a solid choice. Good service. Excellent food. It's a lot of fun.
