When I saw they had a Melting Pot in Arlington I just had to go. I was expecting "good food but bad hostess" but was pleasantly surprised to find they had "good food and happy hostess!" This made my night. I was pleasantly greeted and treated well. Expect a 2 hour meal. The traditional cheese fondues are so great (I... More

I will say the place is good, food good, but hostess absolutely rude with no people skills whatsoever, for place that more like you need reservation to be seated needs to have a better attention to those customers that don't have reservations. When we asked for a table practically the answer was "you can wait two hour or so if... More

Not sure why we picked this place. Fondue was OK.....meats at fondue places are always suspect in our minds.....other stuff was OK. Desert was also OK.

The reason why we loved our night was our server. Tasha was exceptional. She worked with us on our food allergy and saw to our every need. We try one of the cocktails and didn't like it at all. She replaced it and the follow on cocktail we loved! Her conversation skills and attention to detail were the reason we... More

The Melting Pot is always a winner with our family. We came here for my birthday dinner and it was another lovely experience. The French onion cheese fondue is money and we enjoyed the Pacific Rim main course (a little spicier which I liked) with s'mores fondue for dessert. They always have a great beer selection and for wine lovers... More

Our waiter is the longest serving employee at this restaurant. He was very helpful giving us advice on places to see in DC. As always the food at the Melting Pot is delicious!

As a French person, cheese is a very important part of our lives, and we have not been disappointed here! The Alpine fondue was soooo good, as well as the different breads served! Our waitress, Desiree, was extremely plaisant, making sure to create the "show" during our 4-courses meal and to respect our restrictions! I would definitely go back and... More

My family and I dined here on Veteran's Day as a way to celebrate our family's service to the nation. The food was good. My husband and I have eaten at a Melting Pot before so we knew what to expect. The portions are large, especially if you opt to order the four course meal. I would recommend this if... More

My wife and I had a very pleasant meal. The meats, seafood, and veggies were wonderful. The sauces were tasty as well. The best part was the excellent server, who attended to our every need. NOTE: you can park in the building and they validate. We didn't know that, but will do it next time. It is a bit pricey,... More
