My friend and I were in Dallas for a girls shopping trip and our favorite place to eat is the Melting Pot. The food is always excellent and the service was outstanding. The waiter recommended other places to eat while in Dallas and even gave us a list with the names and address. Great quite place to unwind after a long day of shopping. Highly recommend! You will not be disappointed. Well worth the money.

One of my absolute favorite restaurants. Just ignore the review from the very uncreative person below who just "boiled" his food. It is a wonderful oppurtinity to spend time with friends and family while having an excellent and extremely healthy meal (so long as you don't get the oil). We go at least once a month. But be prepared to spend some time there, and enjoy it!

I'd consider myself quite credible in evaluating dining experiences. If you're going to waste a review complaining about the lighting, do something better with your time. Did you request the staff to adjust the lights? No? Interesting...
To say the food isn't tasty is to describe yourself as a bad cook. The "boiling" soup is actually one of three well-seasoned broths that offer different tastes. Or you can fry everything up in oil. Either way, you can't complain about tastes when they offer 6 or 7 different dipping sauces with your meal. And the dessert isn't served with "bread and cookies." Try cheesecake, oreo-covered marshmallows, cream cheese balls rolled in cinnamon, dark chocolate brownies, angel food cake, strawberries, bananas, and snicker pieces. Don't be deterred by diners whining about "cooking their own meal." You stick a piece of food on a fondue fork and let it sit in broth for 2 minutes. If you call that cooking, come to my kitchen. I'll REALLY put you to work.

This restaurant isn't great. I'm not sure what everyone in Dallas is talking about but I heard about it through them. I took my wife here and we were both pretty excited about trying something new. The first thing you'll notice is that this "romantic" restaurant is located in a strip mall and it's above the Cingular store. How romantic is that?? You have to walk up these parking lot stairs and when you reach the top, the restaurant entrance is in this dimly lit hallway. Ghe tto. You sit down, you look at the menu, you have to squint hard cause it's so dark in there. For two, they have several "combo" set meals. Ours was priced at $100 for both of us. A bit much, but we didn't know what to expect. Well, after our food came out, we should have expected more. The first course starts with your choice of cheese melted in the fondue p ot served with bread and apples. The next course, where you cook your own food, was a p ot of boiling soup. You put your meat on a skewer and cook it in the p ot. For $100, we got a lobster tail each and a few pieces of beef and chicken. Oh, but you get unlmiited potatoes and bread! The last course is your choice of a chocolate melted in the p ot and served with bread and cookies. The food is pretty good, but definitely not enough for $100! I told my wife the next time we want lobster and beef, we can go to THE KEG and for $100 we can get 3 steak and lobster dinners. The service was ok, but not good enough to justify spending this much money. Make sure you've got at least two hours to spend on dinner as well since everything is on a time table with the different courses. I'm not sure why people are raving about this place - maybe they are jumping on the bandwagon? Don't buy in to it. Sure, it's fun dipping things into cheese, but there's also many other fun things you can do with all that money.

Pros: tasty food, fun way to eat

Cons: way too expensive, not enough cheese for the money

.

Cheese fondue and melted chocolate is mediocre and may consider going again for that. However, stay away from the entrees where you basically boil your meat and veggies. Not very tasty.

I've been to this restaurant many times and I leave satisfied every time. I usually order one of the dinner menus for couples, and its always more than enough food for two. Sometimes we have leftovers even with three people! There are a variety of choices, from the cheese, salads, meats, cooking styles, dessert, all of which are outstanding. It is truly a unique dining experience.

Pros: variety, romance

Cons: for those who are impatient, it's about a 2 hour dining experience

The Melting Pot was a very romantic dining experience! Several comfortable cozy booths for two made a quiet, private meal perfect. The service and wine list really stood out. Fondue is the type of meal catering to getting to know each other or catching up with old friends. We enjoyed the selection of seafood and there were vegetarian options for my wife. The meal itself took time but we were unrushed by the server which was a rare treat for dining in Addison where we have had other so called 'fine dining' restaurants rush us out for the next guests. Overall would have to rate 9+!

This place offers a nice quite place to enjoy the night out. Be prepared to spend two hours here for diner. It is very romantic and sensual. It is a nice way to spend a dinner as a couple or with a small group of friends. The courses come out slow and you have to cook your own food, but it is fun. It is quite expensive, but worth it. I love going and trying a new dish each time.

This is a great restaurant for fondue. Excellent atmosphere. Go in with a reservation or you'll be waiting a while. It is a perfect place for a date, but expect to spend a good amount of money. Still, I would reccommend it for a special occassion.

This restaurant is listed as a romantic dining place so we tried it for our wedding anniversary. However, romance here seems to mean 'as dark as possible'. The restaurant is quite cavernous with lots of (too) private spaces and very sparse lighting. Maybe it is just us, but especially when eating fondue one would really like to be able to take a good look at the raw food that is being served, but due to the dim light this is almost impossible to evaluate. Summary: An o.k. experience but not outstanding.
