The food was delicious and the service was great. WE had a 7:30 reservation, but I would go earlier next time so there was time to slowly savor all the courses.

We have visited this restaurant several times in the past few years. We have had the pleasure of celebrating birthdays, anniversaries and Mother's Day here. The manager goes out of his way to stop at each table to check throughout your visit. On Mother's Day, each mom was given a gift in addition to the wonderful meal. We love the... More

My wife and I went for our 13 th anniversary. We have decided that it is a place you go for the expierence not so much the food. Even if I were rich, I would not visit this place every year; much more enjoy somewhere like carrabbas or outback. We have the dinner for 2 for $60. Dinner started off... More

I eat here every chance I get. From a romantic anniversary dinner to a great night out with the ladies. Last night we had a lady's night out for their endless cheese and chocolate night. We had eight crazy ladies. I do recommend you make reservations. The owner here is wonderful and truly cares what his customers think. One of... More

For our last night of vacation we decided on The Melting Pot, we wanted something that we could recap the week together and prepare for returning back to "normal" life that involves a lot of travel for both of us. Made reservations, was not a problem when we arrived a little bit early. Seated in a small two seat corner... More

My fiance and I visited the Fredericksburg VA location of the Melting Pot for the first time, we generally go to the Reston VA location (it was booked so we opted for the next closest location). Unfortunately, this location was definitely not even up to par in my book, when it comes to ambience or upkeep (especially the ladies room).... More

We visited the Melting Pot for Christmas dinner. I had forgotten how much fun those fondue parties in the 70s were, our last fondue set having gone to its reward several years back. We had a secluded booth with the necessary heating unit. The menu is varied with a number of combinations at different levels. We had a mid-range offering... More

My first experience at a Melting Pot anywhere couldn't have been more average. That said, we were with a larger group, but I still expected more for a dinner that ended up costing almost $50/person with just one beverage. We each had the four course meal. It starts with cheese fondue. This is included in the pricing for the 4-course... More

We've eaten at many Melting Pot restaurants and this was by far the best! Ask for Jenna, she was THE best server! Made sure we had plenty of the free extras..... bread, veggies, potatoes, sauces and desserts. We always had to beg at other of these franchises.... not this one. Meat quality was excellent! Owner stopped by several times to... More

Three hour birthday meal! Only raw meat. No cooked meals. California salad was excellent, but little of it. Slow and very expensive for what you get.
