    Food was good although the portions are small especially for the price you pay. Kids ordering from the kids menu should not be charged a per person fee for cheese especially when the cheese portion is extremely small. Disappointed when I received the bill and they charged my child $7.50 for cheese. Especially when I purchased the 4-course meal for myself. Just another way for The Melting Pot to make money.

    My boyfriend and I chose to go The Melting Pot for our three year anniversary. This was our first time going and we felt right at home. The ambiance is outstanding out which allows for a wonderful, romantic experience. It is a restaurant unlike any other we've ever tried. We walked in and were seated right away. We were given great recommendations from our waiter and thoroughly enjoyed all four courses. I guess my sweet tooth will show a bit here, but I absolutely loved the dessert. It came with a variety of sweets to dip in the chocolate we selected and the presentation was stellar. Our waiter made definitely added to the experience and was professional yet fun. We will definitely be back soon!

  • I like the fondue experience
    jimcobber
    Dined on 10/11/2014
    This is a great place to check out a fondue experience. My mom is Swiss, and we enjoyed fondue night a couple of times a month when I was a kid. This dinner returned many fond memories. The raw materials were high-quality and the fondue, both cheese and broth, was excellent. Our server was excellent and did not leave us waiting for a thing. The problem I had with this place is they put us in a "half booth". Which I suppose was to be a romantic thing. In reality, the booth was extraordinarily uncomfortable. The very uncomfortable seat was way too low in relation to the fixed table. I could not get comfortable. I looked longingly at the couple across from us who were enjoying a fill sized booth. Next time we will request the full size.

    The Melting Pot in Virginia Beach is always a Great spot for that romantic or special occasion dinner. While the food is outstanding, the thing that makes this place so nice is the quality of service. The servers are courteous, knowledgeable and always ensure that you have a great dining experience.

    I love The Melting Pot but this was my first time at this location. My boyfriend and I were celebrating our third anniversary so we requested Lover' Lane. My only complaint was that the Lover's Lane at this location was not as private as others I have been to. The waitress was amazing along with the four course meal. We both ordered a couple of drinks and the only one I wasn't a fan of was the White Russian, a little watered down. I would definitely go back again!

    This was my third dining experience at The Melting Pot. As I expected the food and service was superior. I was quite upset however over a family that brought there three year old to the restaurant. The child proceeded to scream and throw things which I found quite unsettling. It was my anniversary and I was quite annoyed because of someone else's inconsiderate decision to bring their child to a quaint and classy establishment.

    I went to The Melting Pot to celebrate my 30th birthday with four other people. As soon as we were all there we were seated. We ordered our food and drinks and everything came out really fast and was delicious. The only issue was five min after our waitress brought our food she brought our checks. Then not even five min later she came and asked if they were ready to be picked up, which they were not. We all put our credit cards in and talked about how we felt like we were being pushed out the door. So half way into our desert we had already paid. Afterward all we talked about was how we felt rushed not how good the food was and how the restaurant lost out on revenue because we all would have ordered at least one more drink.

    I've always wanted to try TMP experience and it was worth. Server explained the menu which was great, since we've never been there before. I do gate with some others reviewer that they could add a timer kn the table. My husband and I have a somewhat policy of no phones at date night, and we had to pull out our phone to so the timer, it was a little inconvenient, also we could hear the table next to is with their phone timer as well. Overall we would go back to dinner again.

    Overall the experience was great but there were a few things I didn't like. The stove wires under the table were visible and trashy looking and a big stopwatch on the wall would of been ideal to keep time when cooking. Last thing, in the booths that were L shaped there was a big hump that I had to sit on so I could be close to my woman. It wasn't comfortable so maybe a one piece cushion with consistent cushioning all the way around would of been ideal

    Dined on 8/20/2014
    We went to the melting pot for a birthday party. It was loads of fun and the staff was professional, and courteous. This is best done on the four course option, which can take two hours to complete. Thus, while it is great for parties, I'm not sure it is good for casual dining. It is also a good value for the price, but because it is four courses it is not cheap.

    My waitress was lovely and very helpful. It gives you a warm feeling. And the fondue was amazing. The drinks were tasty. We got the meal for two which I didn't know was some a small portion. So we were still hungry and had to get something else to eat from somewhere else. Besides the portion being extremely small I loved it.
