We really enjoyed our fondue experience and tasting new things. The meat, cheese and fruit fondue are all delicious. However, this restaurant isn't cheap and kids are picky so you may want to consider an adults one night out and save your money without kids.

Cheese Fondue with all the usual dippers, bread, celery, green apples, grapes, etc. Salad was next and I highly recommend the house salad with the house dressing. The entree portion was done mojo style with teriyaki sirloin, buffalo chicken, pork medallions, shrimp and another beef selection. This portion was all you can eat for Father's Day. Dessert was next... oh... More

Went for my February birthday so we picked off the Valentine's Day menu. Lots of variety we got the four course dinners with breads, salad, main course, with shrimp, steaks and more meats and then the decadent dessert of the Carmel chocolate fondue. It's a bit pricey but, it's great for a fun girls night out or a celebration. Hope... More

Our waitress, Erin, was all that you'd want - attentive, helpful and very personable. The trip was the 10th anniversary from leaving Switzerland (the ancestral home of Fondue). The cheese pot was great - nicely prepared... The meat was fantastic - we chose the Coq au Vin cooking style and the cuts of meat were perfect - nice and lean... More

The dining experience is amazing. This is a high-end place to go once a year for a very special occasion. I would consider coming more often at half the price. But I don't want Melting Pot to change just to cheapen the experience. I like having this option out there just the way it is. Our waiter, Nick, was both... More

Came here a while back for my friends party. The service was great and so was the food they were able to accommodate about 15 loud girls. We had fondue and a great time!

Visited because I got a special deal on Living Social I couldn't pass up. Last experience at Melting Pot in Arlington many years ago was not good either. If I paid full price for what I received I would be outraged. It simply is not worth the price they charge. Waiter wasn't around much, I think they were short staffed... More

This was a lovely experience and something very different from the usual fare. The staff is very friendly and attentive and accommodating to special requests. Ben, our server, did an outstanding job of explaining our choices (and there were so many!!!) and preparing our cheese fondue at our table, as well as our selected cooking solution for our main entrees....
