The Melting Pot in Reston is all about the fondue. The waitress tried to influence us to order the 4-course dinner, but that looked like a lot of food, so we opted for a la carte, and saved a lot of money by so doing. If you do order the 4-courser, be ready to pay $50 a head + drinks.... More

Overall, we had an excellent experience. The food was wonderful and the service was second-to-none. My only complaint is that the "flower and picture" package is NOT worth the $25.00 surcharge. For $25, you get a very cheap balloon tied to a cheap string tied to a very cheap vase with three standard roses. You also get a photo taken... More

Thank you for taking the time to write your review. I'm so sorry that you were not pleased with your flower package. We are always happy to take pictures whenever a guest would like. Many of our guests like to have the dessert in the picture which is why we typically do it then. If ever it is preferred earlier... More

Love, love, love the Melting Pot! This location can be a bit tricky to find (in office building area), and parking is pretty terrible, but the experience definitely makes up for it! I would definitely recommend making reservations (can be done online) or the wait can be LONG. The food is great and they are very flexible with selections. We... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to review our restaurant. Parking trick: there is a free covered parking garage behind the restaurant. You can park there and cut through the lobby of the building. You'll end up next to the front door of the restaurant. We are so happy you enjoyed your dining experience. We hope to see... More

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
