Thursday night, April 13th...Was excited to take our daughter to fun dinner, fondue style. Walked in and two girls were at front desk. Neither of them ever bothered to acknowledge us. My husband finally asked them if we could get in for dinner. One finally looked up and said do you have a reservation. We said no and she said... More

We've been to Melting Pot at least a dozen times and we've always enjoyed our food and drinks. It's a change of pace and fun to dip you food and desserts into fondu. Everything about the Melting Pot is great, but the service can be hit or miss. We were running five/ten minutes late to our appointment and we called... More

Sort of a fun concept, Different fondue options and flavors. Some in hot oil, some in hot stock and some in cheese. Different things to dip, meats, veggies and breads. I might want to try this again.

A lot bigger inside than it looks from outside. A little more open than other melting pots, which have more private seating for their tables. Worst part of experience was the wait. Had a reservation for 3:45 pm, did not get seated until 4:08 pm. Front desk manager look confused and flustered. Was writing all kinds of things down trying... More

Austin was fantastic. He kept checking on us to see if we needed/wanted anything. He explained everything well for my mother who had never been to a Melting Pot before. The Wisconsin Cheddar cheese selection was very tasty for our first course. I had the house salad w/ house dressing as usual (I think there is something addictive in the... More

I only visit this place for special occasions given the cost, but it's always a fun time and well worth it. They do push the four course option pretty hard, but I think that they are required to. It is expensive, but if you enjoy fondue then it's worth it. Our waitress Crystal was very nice and attentive without seeming... More

We came with a group of 9! Our waitress, Crystal was amazing! She walked us through the process where we were comfortable! Even my 96 year old dad had fun and wanted everyone to try the pot near him ( we had 3 pots )! It was a super evening and I can't wait to take our other friends here.... More

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
