From beginning to end the service was great! Dean our server was friendly and attentive. The ambiance was warm and cozy, especially good when the weather isn’t agreeable. The manager was present and came by and introduced himself. Overall, will be coming again for another great date night. Oh, the cost and quality of the food was amazing.

We waited very long for the entrees. It took us 3 hours to complete the experience for two menu. The restaurant is dark and smelly. Overall I do not think that I would pay that much to wait 3 hours for a dinner

They were under staffed so we were waiting for 30 mins before anyone came to take our order and then every time the waitress left we would have to wait another 20-30 mins for them to come back and then there was an oil pot that started burning and the restaurant filled up with smoke but they usually do a really good job so I think tonight was just a bad night for them

We think our server had tables far from ours because our 2 hour meal was almost a 3 hour meal. Our drinks came 15 minutes after we ordered them, everything took a very long time. I don’t know how much of it was our server versus the day and how busy they were, but it really made the meal a disappointment.

17th Birthday celebration for my daughter and our server she was very patient, helpful and surprised my kid with a happy birthday plate which I did not expect! It was her and her friends first time to try fondue so it was definitely a good experience for all of them, they especially loved the dessert how can you go wrong with that!

Everything was good, but a little difficulty with cheese. A little thick in beginning and had to get remade. First pot burnt. But second batch was perfect and staff very apologetic and friendly.

Loved our waitress, they were very helpful and very kind. Answered all our questions and offered solutions. Asked us if we were celebrating anything and we replied our anniversary and she came out with a nice plate with “happy anniversary” written on it with chocolate with some chocolate covered strawberries to go. over all great experience with great food.

This was the perfect place for a fun girls night out to celebrate. This time, we skipped the entree and only ate the cheese and chocolate fondues and added the charcuterie board. The staff was great and asked if we were celebrating anything. Then she brought out a plate for my daughter that said "Have fun in High School". It was a perfect touch and she loved it.

Slowest, worst service ever! Reservations were at 830...seated at 840ish....no server until 915...had to ASK for a manager to get drinks. Server never explained the menu or how kids menu worked. Got SOME food by 10...dirty plates piled up on table...never asked if we needed refills. By10pm ...still no main course so I asked for our check. Magically our food comes out...DIRTY plates STILL ON OUR TABLE. Food was mediocre at best. Had to ask the server for refills on drinks. Long story short....we left at 11pm. Terrible service. Never going back.


UPDATE: The General Manager (Cory) called as a follow up and was very pleasant and apologetic for the experience. This was extremely professional and a breath of fresh air to know that poor experiences are taken seriously. Thank you for trying to rectify the situation! That was a class act!

We go to the melting pot usually one to twice a month but might be avoiding Reston for a while. The staff was way over worked and thus did not have the time to attend to tables. Our bullion was almost gone before they arrived with the meat. We had to add drinking water back into the pot to have anything useful to cook with. I found a hard bone or plastic piece in my steak and was told “oh it was just a tendon” if you steak is of such poor quality I can cut my cheek on it there are issues. They have cut way back on potions especially desert. 2 brownies 2 marshmallows no bananas 3 rice crispy squares 2 small pieces of pound cake and what amounted to maybe 2 anemic strawberries that were inedible this was for a party of 2. At the end of the meal the server was nice enough to select the highest tip for us and while I did change it and tip 20% I think it is a bit shady.

We hit Melting Pot 1-2 times a year and it’s always good. Nice to get out and have a quiet evening of good food. The yin/yang chocolate for dessert is always a must.

Overall enjoyable experience and our family of five had a fun night together. Food was fresh and good, service was attentive and knowledgeable and have zero complaints on quality of food or professionalism of our very nice server. However, we were a bit disappointed that other than our server acknowledging our son’s birthday, no other special attention from the restaurant was made. I had noted in our reservation that it was his 16th birthday, so we were disappointed that nothing was done to make him feel special. We/he could hear other people being celebrated and kept thinking his turn would come, but nothing. We felt like the ball was dropped on a milestone moment for us.
