  • "This is our restaurant of choice for the big occasions!!! Service, food, and ambiance is excellent!!!"

  • "It was a nice place to be "interactive" at dinner. Not the normal you order food...wait...and then get it and eat. You basically make your own food, so it's nicer than just sitting there waiting. Would be nice for first dates since it has you interact with each other. Also, the food is amazing, especially the dessert. I would go back just for the dessert."

  • "The owner was extremely nice and very funny. Our waitress was top notch. We were first timers and she explained everything to us. The food was excellent and fresh. There are many options on the drink list. There are many options to pick from the menu to suit you're taste. The 4 course is the way to go. We were all so stuffed we left. My 7 year old nephew enjoyed as well. We will definitely be back. Don't forget to call ahead and order chocolate covered strawberries to go!"

  • "My wife and I have been to the melting pot at least a dozen times or more. Each time the food quality and experience has been excellent. This time the main course was still very good, but the salads and dessert were not as fresh as they have been in the past. The lettuce was somewhat wilted and not very crisp and the cheese cake in the dessert was dried out and stale(as were a few other items presented on the dessert plate). The service was as good as ever. We still plan on going back as all of our other experiences have been very good and we recommend it to anyone."

  • "Always thought of fondue restaurants as just a kind of quirky thing. Decided to give it a try on my birthday just for the heck of it. Double dated with some friends and we were all super, pleasantly surprised by how much we just LOVED it! Service was fantastic and don't even get me started on the desserts! I'm not big on chocolates at all, but I would go there just for the desserts. Appetizers and entrees were also quite delicious. We will definitely be eating here again!"

  • "Had been wanting to try this place for awhile, with my wife. Decided to take the whole family (5 people total). Visited with a coupon offering a four course experience. The experience was nice. The food was good, not great. The bill was over $217 with tax and tip, and we only ordered one drink at the table (water all around). It was a fun experience, but for the cost, it will be a one time experience. Maybe better for a special couple occasion, but not so much for a family. (Unless you're wealthy.) :-)"

  • "This was the best dining experience we have had in many years! We went for our anniversary and the owner, Mr. Tan, made sure everything with our dining arrangements was taken care of. Our server, Cara, was also perfect and we will definitely return. We have been to other Melting Pot locations in other cities and we were not impressed. They made sure it was worth our time and money."

  • "I wanted to encourage my boyfriend for Valentine's Day. A co-worker suggested this place. I asked a few friends about it. We went and he had a great time."
    Dined on 2/17/2014
  • "We took our friends to The Melting Pot for Valentine's day and we all enjoyed it. The overall response was that we all thoroughly enjoyed the cheese & chocolate fondue, but the meat was just "ok". We may return and only do the cheese/chocolate courses in the future. It's not that the meat is bad, but you're basically boiling it in a broth. The sauces they bring are tasty, too. Our server was very attentive and explained everything well. I enjoyed my meal & had delicious sangria, too! We were even given a coupon to return."

  • "This is the place for fondue! I call it "interactive eating" . The location is very convienant and the atmosphere is perfect for couples. I was able to do an online reservation (nice) and have roses waiting for my wife at the table. I had my 19th wedding anniversary there - I couldn't think of a better place to be with the one I love."
    Dined on 2/18/2014
  • "My wife and I had a very lovely and enjoyable evening at The Melting Pot. Drinks and food where amazing. The server we had wasn't all that great. She seemed to have forgotten about us after we got our entree. I was just about to get another server to find ours when she popped up after being MIA. This is the first time I've had this kind of service here. Usually the servers are very attentive. But I will say she was nice when she was there."

  • "We went on Valentines day weekend and as a result were restricted to the four course special. that was disappointing. I do plan to go back but not on an event weekend like that where options are limited. that being sad, service and food were great. The manager even gave us a $20 off coupon for another 4 course meal for two on another visit."

  • "It was my girlfriend and I first visit, and for Valentines Day. It couldn't have been any better. She loved it!!!!"
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "We were seated 30 minutes after the reservation time. Dinner went smooth/staff was friendly. The mood/setting was dim lit and sort of romantic. A pretty private meal. The problem I have - the price does not equate to the quality of the meal. I could spend the same at Morton's Steakhouse or Longhorn Steakhouse for better food, equal service/setting. I do not like the style of cooking. I didn't like that I had to cook it myself and guess the time. It all seemed like it was boiled. No, I will not go there again nor recommend anyone to The Melting Pot. I kinda wish I could get some of my money back, but I did pay for a service and I learned from it. I do wish The Melting Pot success for the people that do enjoy that style of cooking.(summed up)"

  • "Excellent food: We had the Wisconsin Trio Cheese Fondue (excellent), the Classic ( Angus sirloin, BBQ pork medallion, shrimp, chicken, and teriyaki-marinated sirloin) cooked in the Mojo style, salads and the Yin/Yang chocolate fondue (white and dark chocolate) for desert. Service: Excellent Overall value: Very good."

  • "Never have been before. Brought my wife for a date night and we both loved it. It's pretty pricey so bring the check book. The food was fantastic. At first it seemed like it was only enough for a small child then it kept coming. A must go at least once."

  • "This is not our first time at the Melting Pot & it will not be the last. As always the service & food are wonderful. Our server (Victoria) was friendly, energetic and knowledgeable. The restaurant always has a great dining atmosphere to enjoy our food and beverages. While this Melting Pot location is a popular location, I never feel rushed to complete a meal. The selection of new herbs and spices are great and the new individual selection(s) for a la carte is MOST welcome. Always a five star dining experience for couples, families and now individuals."

  • "The Melting Pot is pricey, even with the 4-course special we took advantage of, but it was our 10 year anniversary and my husband and I had a great time. We enjoyed out fabulous server, the food and the whole fondue experience, not to mention the amazing adult beverages! The Love Martini was fantastic :)"

  • "Excellent food! Brittney did an excellent job of making sure that we had everything we needed! This was our date night, but this is an excellent idea for groups!"

  • "This is the restaurant I always go to on my birthday but it is always a very expensive night out, even with the 35% off coupon. But it is a long dinner and gives me time to really talk to the people I go with and I thoroughly enjoy it here. The men always complain they are still hungry afterwards."

  • "After reading the exceptional reviews on this particular "Melting Pot" location, I think my expectations were a bit too high, thus dampening the overall experience. The food, service and ambiance were very good; so what's my problem? The fact is; I didn't have a problem. I brought my wife here on a cold January Wednesday night to celebrate our 42nd wedding anniversary. The restaurant was warm and inviting. Because it was an anniversary celebration, they seated us at a romantic little nook in the back of a small room. Our waiter was well trained, helpful and prompt, but a bit aloof. The sauces were good but nothing to write home about. The meats were excellent! It was a $100 meal plus $25 for roses & picture. Great for special occasion."

  • "My family was having a hard getting into the Christmas spirit, so we decided to go out to eat. After such great food & superior service by Tim, we've decided to make the Melting Pot our new Christmas tradition! The quality and quantity of food is well worth the price and some. Tim's thoroughness and ability to anticipate our needs, coupled with a can do attitude, especially on Christmas, made our experience that much better. The atmosphere was fine dinning in a classic business casual way so my all occasion jean wearing family was comfortable. The manager was very nice and reachable, often checking on the guests and quickly implementing a solution for anything brought to his attention. He was like the ribbon on the total package."

  • "A lovely dining experience made especially memorable by top-level service by the wait-staff. Nearly perfect food, marred only by the abundance of pepper on the sirloin entree, which might work if the steak were grilled, but not in a fondue. Still, the quiet atmosphere and high quality food make this my go-to place for a special occasion."

  • "The food was great, the waiter was attentive and friendly, and the atmosphere was unique. Cooking our own entrees was a nice change from the normal."

  • "This was our first time at the Melting Pot and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Melissa, our server was helpful in explaining the process. answering our questions and making excellent recommendations on the various options. The owner provided a personal touch by coming by to chat and to ensure that we were properly taken care of. The food and the ambience were excellent. and since fondue dining provides a leisurely paced dinner , it also offers a better opportunity for relaxing conversation. Plan to go again."

  • "I went to the Melting Pot to celebrate my birthday. I made my reservation online and had to change it and push it back 3 times. Each time, the person who assisted me was very friendly and accommodating. When i was dining, my boyfriend had coordinated several surprises with the staff to make my dinner and birthday very special. I absolutely love the restaurant and the overall dining experience. this particular location in Fredericksburg is my favorite and o enjoy sewing the familiar, friendly staff each time."

  • "Ryan was a terrific server who explained how everything worked and was very accommodating about special requests. We were celebrating a birthday, and a piece of cheesecake came out with a candle. Owner came over and chatted. Food was maxing, especially the cheese fondue, classic and cheddar with blue cheese. Also lovely filet and shrimp. Thanks for a memorable evening."
