    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.

    Dined on 8/26/2014
    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

    A wonderful dining experience. The only drawback is there is only one hotplate on the table, requiring the party to be restricted to selecting only one cheese, one entree cooking style, and one chocolate.

    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.

    My family's recent dinner experience at The Melting Pot in Virginia Beach was outstanding! The food was fresh & flavor-filled. Our waiter, Luis, however, made our dinner experience exceptional! Luis was attentive, friendly, and helpful. With 2 adults and 4 kids, our waiter was busy; but you would have never known. Suggestions he made regarding meal choices was appreciated and spot-on. Our family will definitely return to this Melting Pot!

    I love this place. I came here to celebrate my birthday, the only bad experience I had was the people at the front desk who completely ignored me and I Had reservations. They kept staring at me and asking everyone else around me if they had been helped. They seemed confused. I had to approach them and say excuse my I have reservations to which they replied "okay, hold on". Everything else was wonderful. My server was amazing.

    My husband and I celebrated our first wedding anniversary and it was fantastic! We were seated as soon as we confirmed our reservation in a nice quiet area away from the hustle and bustle of the rest of the restaurant. Our waiter, Roy, was perfect. He greeted us within moments, helped us choose our cheese, and explained everything to us. He gave us time to enjoy ourselves and our food without hovering or rushing us. While he set up the pots he was very attentive to our needs. When it was time for dessert we had a wonderful surprise. We will certainly be returning next year!

    Everything was wonderful, except the manager. I was able to find a groupon and we had gone for a date night to use it before it expired. Our server said they don't accept them at that location, and he'd let us use it if it was up to him, but it wasn't and he got his manager. (I've never used an actual groupon before, and had no idea that you bought them based on specific locations).Well, the manager comes by and says, "you had the groupon, we don't accept that here in virginia beach!" Then he walked off, and I was left there stunned at his blunt, rude statement. I understand it was my mistake, but as a manager you need to treat customers with respect, caring, and say unfortunately we can't take that here and have compassion in your voice.

    My husband decided he wanted to go to the Melting Pot for his brithday (27th). We had gone to one in Pittsburgh before and loved it, this one did not disappoint either. There was a great wine list to pair with our meal and there were more meal choices than the last time we went. It was great. Our server was great, food was great. We made reservations. If you want a more romantic feel request a secluded booth for two in the back of the restaurant.

    The food was excellent as always. Our server checked on us often which was kinda nice but she was a tad annoying in a few instances. We had to get our own silverware bc our napkins were dirty, ignored the fact my friend has been coming there for yrs and instead of checking on a request she ignored it and insisted my friend was wrong. Set the tone for rest of the meal.

    This was my first time at the melting pot and I probably will not go back. For how much you pay, the food just does not fill me up. Granted 55 Dollars for dinner, including tip, is not outrageous. But literally two hours later I was starving. For the money I would rather have a nice steak. But thats just me. On a good note, the server was wonderful. It was my girlfriend and I's first anniversary. He brought out one candle with our desert, its the little things that count. He was just all around a fun person.
