  • "I went here with my mother and we used the Summer Platter deal they have going on all summer, and it was awesome. The 4-course dinner was all fantastic, Scott was an awesome and thorough server. Go in and mention the Summer Platter, and you won't be disappointed, I promise."

  • "From the cheese fondue to the salad to the entrees to the dessert, the entire experience was pleasing to the entirety of our tastebuds. The service was excellent, the food was delicious, just a great dining experience fit the entire family."

  • "The server was fantastic. We had a gentleman with us who was drinking his water rapidly and the server managed to keep it filled without being asked and without us even really noticing. We were able to continue with our conversation without being interrupted while he saw to our drinks and dishes. We've had him before and it was the same great service. Keep it up!"

  • "Excellent food and a good amount of food to try so you can enjoy a 3 to 5 course dinner or lunch. Just a fun thing to do and enjoy."

  • "Nice, but a lot of work. We had not planned on having to cook our own meals. MP came highly recommended by friends. Booths are very romantic and very small. Steaks are better cooked as a whole and then cut into tiny pieces as you eat it. MP is worth a try, but be prepared to spend a small fortune. May return with kids, but my husband will not be back."

  • "After having been baby sitters for the grandkids while their Mom and Dad went to The Melting Pot, and THEN having to listen to them rave about how great the experience had been, we decided to see about it for ourselves. Well, our experience was everything we were told to expect and more! It was fantastic. And our server Victoria, guided us through every step of our dining experience. She was more than great, she made us comfortable and allowed us to enjoy our night out to the n'th degree."

  • "Took my fiance here for Fathers Day. He was really impressed. The amount of food you get, along with the ambience, makes the price worth it."

  • "Great service. Drinks priced to market but food was a little overpriced, especially for the entrees."

  • "Me and my wife had an awesome time. Mood and setting were right and our server was more than willing to assist us. Great place."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "We've eaten at The Melting Pot many times and this was the worst service we have ever had there. The wait between refills (did the endless cheese and chocolate) was too long and the waitress often had to go back for something (spices/bread etc). She kept saying "I'll get that in right away for you" and we waited and waited. Love the restaurant and will go back but this time was a disappointing experience. "

  • "First time eating at Melting Pot during the Early Dining time frame. Very quiet and relaxing time to go. We enjoyed that as well as the summer drink menu very much!"

  • "Brought my husband here for a date. It was absolutely amazing! Great food, great service and it was very romantic! We had never been so they were very kind to help us along the way with how to's and what sauces are best. :) I would absolutely recommend this restaurant to everyone. It is a little pricey but it is so worth it!!"

  • "Outstanding experience both visits we have had to the Melting Pot Fredericksburg, VA. Service, Atmosphere, and Food was excellent. Recommend this facility to any couple looking for a romantic quite location to celebrate a special occasion or just some together time. Would also be great for small to medium size group dining."

  • "I have heard about Melting Pot for years and finally made the time to go, it was to celebrate Mother's day a week late. We had the best time! The place has nice clean decor the staff was amazing! and the food....was so fresh and so good! Cannot say enough good things! Will definately go back!!"
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "The food was amazing, however when sitting down into the booth, both my boyfriend and I bumped our knee on the corner of the burner. I was wearing a dress and it actually cut me and left a welt/bruise. It might be a good idea to find a way to put something on those corners to avoid cuts and bruises as they are sharp. Overall though I was in heaven."
    Dined on 5/16/2014
  • "It was an awesome way for my son and I to spend some time together! He had never been before and the experience was top notch...waiter was really good with him! We lost my husband his dad a year and half ago, so anything that puts a smile on his face makes me equally happy! Thank you so much...."

  • "Took my wife here for her birthday for the first time ( ever, not just for a birthday :P ). Food was great, service was great and we had what was probably the best seat in the house. Will be going again!"

  • "Had a great time. First Time at this restaurant. won't be ordering the 4 course again tho..too much food."
    Dined on 4/26/2014
  • "My wife and I have always found The Melting Pot the perfect spot for our birthday celebrations and wedding anniversary. We also take the opportunity to enjoy an occasional night out just for fun. The management and staff go out of their way to make each guest feel special. Further, the meals are excellent as well as the service."

  • "Great place, good food, service and fun. Our server Mike was fabulous and patient. Our first time there and he explained everything thoroughly. "
    Dined on 4/19/2014
  • "This is a nice restaurant for special occasions. Although the waiter was not as good as in the past it was still a pleasant meal. The special made it even better. I would go again if they have another offer like this one."
    Dined on 4/16/2014
  • "This is our restaurant of choice for the big occasions!!! Service, food, and ambiance is excellent!!!"
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "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!"
    Dined on 4/2/2014
  • "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!"
    Dined on 3/23/2014
  • "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.) :-)"
    Dined on 3/9/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "We celebrated our anniversary here. Our entire experience was amazing. We had a great waiter (mike) the manager was very helpful too. We will defiantly 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."
    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "Our favorite place to eat in Fredericksburg for special occasions and date nights. The food is always outstanding and the service is consistently excellent."

  • "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)"
