For the first time I had no idea what to expect. I was more concerned with celebrating my accomplishment of graduating high school. The waitress was beyond helpful in helping our group select courses that paired well! She even helped us do some math to make sure we were getting the best deal in ordering. Every course was delightful and well thought out. Service was beyond expectations. The wait staff was very friendly, accomodating and highly knowledgable. The prices were a bit high ($$$) however for the amount of food and the quality and type it is well worth it. (about 80$ for two people with four courses a piece...lobster and seafood!).

Fun for everyone
We had 3 generations dining out and everyone loved the experience of a fondue Dinner. Food was great, but unfortunately our waitress was trying to serve tables and work the bar, therefore we did not get the service we are use to and was surprised that the manager never came over to check on us especially knowing we are vips...........

This was my first time dining at any Melting Pot and really enjoyed it! It was a completely different experience and the food was delicious. The servers were also very friendly. I would definitely eat here again.

My husband and I made reservations for Melting Pot for our anniversary. What a great choice! They seated us in a super private booth which was really nice because we really got to enjoy one another. The mood was super romantic. It was ice and quiet. It loud at all. We got the dinner for two for only $78 and a bottle of wine as well. Everything was perfect from the wine to dessert. We left with fond memories and stuffed tummies. I would highly recommend Melting Pot to anyone who asks especially this one. Our waiter was super helpful and knowledgeable. He was also attentive and courteous which ,are our evening that much better.

We were celebrating a friends birthday and wanted to go somewhere special. He loved it and our server was great and we would go back again. You do not leave hungry. Everything was wonderful.

This was my first dining experience at The Melting Pot, recommended by a friend. Megan was a wonderful server. Her timing was perfect as she was checking on us. This was a great first impression as I also work in a restaurant. I will definitely be returning soon with family.

Great Fun! Elegant experience
I absolutely LOVE your new a la carte menu style! The Melting Pot has always been my "go to" spot for special occasions but now I'm looking forward to coming more often. The friendliness of the servers make the fondue experience wonderful. Thank you!!

Friday night Celebration
Tried to add the following optional private note to this, but Opentable wouldn't accept. How lame is that?
Don't think during the dinner hour(s), it is necessary to run the tv, especially with an extraneous and useless program like Entertainment Tonight. If you want to have a "sports bar" environment, then do not seat people in the bar area for dinner. For us, we were eating between 1900 and 2030. To the bartenders credit, he turned the sound of the tv down and music up in the room where all the tables were filled with couples and none of the bar stools.
7/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
The environment was personable, service was polite and I enjoyed the food. Had one misunderstanding about my fiancee' flowers but it was expeditiously brought to our table.
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always a pleasure ...
We have been going to melting pot forever and always live the experience.

Love This Place
This is my third time coming to the melting pot! I love the experience. My only complaint is that I brought sister along who had never dined here and our waiter was fairly new and not engaging. Overall we still had a really good time
8/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
I have never and will never have a bad experience at the Melting Pot. My girlfriend and I celebrated her birthday this trip. This may be attributed to the fact that you do pay for the experience. The price is well worth what you receive though. 2-3 hours of food heaven. Make sure you go with someone who can keep a conversation.

Good food - good fun
My friends and I really enjoy the Ladie's Night Out offerings. It gives us a reason to meet and enjoy the food, atmosphere and service at the Melting Pot. The selections are varied enough to give us several taste opportunities. The food is fresh and our server explained everything to us so that there were not any taste surprises.
8/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
That was my first time dining at The Melting Pot. My best friend and I were thoroughly impressed. Everything was excellent! We will definitely be back.

Another Good Meal
As a return customer to The Melting Pot, I expected no less than good food, good wine, and good service. I was not disappointed. We had their "special" with a nice bottle of wine. Sarah, our waitress, was very attentive. Being repeat customers, she did not have to explain the meal or each course and was able to really focus on making sure we had everything we needed/wanted during our meal. As I said, been there before and I pan on going back again.
8/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Everything was great, my husband took me out to dinner before he deployed, and they made it very special!
8/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food, service, and atmosphere of this facility are well above average. Nicely done.
8/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Best Anniversary Experience
Food and service were excellent can't wait to go again.
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had a wonderful waitress, Chelsea, who really added positively to our experience. The food was wonderful, and everything was great. It made my birthday dinner very special.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
we always enjoy the melting pot. The food was good as usual. We would have enjoyed the meal more without the screaming baby nearby. It really should be mentioned to parents that it is not a family restaurant in the traditional sense and for the price adults should not have to be disturbed by crying children and older kids running around playing hide and seek.
8/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
great food, great service.
This was our second experience with The Melting Pot in Newport News. We have had amazing servers both occasions and the food never disappoints. They often have specials for couples, girls night out, etc. I honestly couldn't think of a way our experience could have been better.

Memorable Dining Experience
I took my daughter her on a father-daughter date night. We both very much enjoyed ourselves, especially the amazing dessert. A bit expensive but we'll never forget our date.
9/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always a treat!
Service was excellent! We were having a birthday celebration and we had younger kids in our party. They were able to put us away from most parties so that we could enjoy the celebration without bothering other patrons that wanted a "quieter" experience. Food was excellent and I always leave pleasantly full and and ready to make my next reservation!

great date night
What a great date night. Food was outstanding and service was top notch. We had tickets so server was ver accomidating.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Been there a number of times.
Been there a number of times. All was, as usual, most excellent. This time, the server made us feel somewhat "rushed". We go there to "dine" not to gobble and get.
9/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great dinner with the family
the whole concept allows for the family to talk and enjoy each others company, good food, good laughs and a great family night out.

It was an experience fo us
It was an experience fo us we weren't expecting to be cooking our own food.

We took our son(his pick)along with his wife and our 18month old niece. We were there two hours and didn't even realize it had been that long. Food was great. We will be coming again
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very private booth and the
Very private booth and the atmosphere was very romantic. The portions on the meat course are a little small for the price you pay. However the cheese and dessert course are very good! If your looking to save money just get those two, they allow you to mix and match. Very nice place to go once in a while for special occasions if your on a budget.

It was very romantic and went
It was very romantic and went for anniversary. I would recommend for special occasions only as it was pricey.

Good Night Out
I love the melting pot and have been to many across the country. This location was great, but the service was rushed and a little absent at times. We did not get a water refill the entire two hours we were there which was unfortunate because we were enjoying wine as well. The waitress spoke quickly and we felt a little rushed when she was around. Otherwise the food was fantastic and the whole experience was good overall! Making the reservation online was easy and the restaurant communication leading up to the reservation was amazing. Thank you!

Excellent Dining Experience
Excellent food and service. They go the extra mile for their customers
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
My dining experience was excellent the manager and this service that explained the menu to me in detail. This was my first time coming and they delivered delicious food....the atmosphere was amazing!

Melissa n Zach
We really enjoyed our experience. We hopefully plan to come back soon. We both agree that we need to eat dinner here more often. We did, however, notice a couple of young chilren crying, which was a bit annoying but we both realize cannot be helped.
Thanks for the great meal.
10/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food as usual. Went with two other couples, one had not been before. The experience is always fun but is even more fun going with people for the first time. Love, Love, Love the Melting Pot.

I have visited this restaurant
I have visited this restaurant approximately 5 times & I've enjoyed it each time although this was not one of my better visits. Perhaps it's because it was a Saturday evening & it was exceptionally busy/noisy. Food was good, but I really wanted to get out of there quicker than usual. The server, although pleasant, took extraordinary amounts of time in between trips to my table. I had the special this time, for the first time, & it seemed sparse.
11/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great for Special Nights Out
While much too pricey to eat at very often, the Melting Pot offers the perfect atmosphere and experience for special occasions, a romantic date night (great for double-dates,too), and is even enough fun to entertain children for a family night (not toddlers, though). Very accommodating and the service is always spot-on. Extensive wine and beer list, and they offer fun nights like Ladies' Night and Halloween parties with special pricing and prizes. Also offer a military discount on Saturday nights with is much appreciated.
11/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great night out
The Melting Pot was wonderful from start to finish! Each course - cheese fondue, salad, main course, and chocolate fondue- was absolutely delicious. The service was fantastic and the ambience was nice for our anniversary dinner.
11/2/2013 5:00:00 PM
My book club met here to have dessert and it was very fun! The dessert was phenomenal and the staff did not treat us as any less special just because we weren't getting a full meal. Highly recommend!
11/4/2013 4:00:00 PM
Excellent service and food.
Excellent service and food. 50th Birthday celebration and the balloons, picture, Happy B-Day "cake" and champagne glass were perfect

Really enjoyed dinner with my wife and soon to be in laws. The waitress was fantastic and the food was really good.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
An amazing experience, loved it!
Loved this place! This was my first experience here, and I was celebrating a special occasion, so the entire atmosphere and ambiance of the restaurant was perfect! I loved the booth seating with the dim lighting, the setting really worked for me and my boyfriend. Loved the spinach and artichoke cheese fondue, it tasted amazing especially with the granny smith apples. And even though I was skeptical at first about cooking my own meat, it was different and I enjoyed it. But the best part was the chocolate fondue, and as a chocolate lover, it was awesome! Our server was great, very sweet and prompt. I would definitely recommend this place, and in fact my boyfriend and I plan to go back very soon!!
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Romantic night on the town! I drove about 30 minutes to dine at The Melting Pot and was not disappointed. I had the 4-course experience and thought it was delicious. The service was great and we got a birthday plate with "Happy birthday" written on it! Even though the price tag was a bit high, i thought the overall experience was great. I will be returning.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
My wife just turned 40 I mean 2 and she wanted to celebrate here. The staff was wonderful as well as accommodating and the food was more than excellent. The waitress even brought out a little rice crispy birthday treat for her. She totally enjoyed herself.
11/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
We have gone here for the last 7 years for our anniversary. It is so romantic and private, especially on lovers lane.
11/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
Melissa and Zacharys experience
We have been here about 3 or 4 times in the past year. We always have a nice experience. Out waiter, Don, was quite nice, and he was professional and plesant. The wine was a bit more expensive than I wanted to pay for, but the food was exellent.
