Diner Reviews
  • "The food, ambience, and service were all excellent. I only wish my stomach were larger! This was the perfect meal out WITHOUT our toddler. Allocate two hours and come hungry."

  • "Our server Aaron was great! We enjoy the slow pace. It was relaxing and interactive. The prices are up there but if you factor in what it actually involves it is reasonable for a special meal."

  • "My wife and I dined at Melting Pot for her birthday and were not disappointed in the least. The food was delicious, server was attentive but not over bearing and we had a wonderful experience. The chocolate covered strawberries we brought home were delicious. No complaints and we look forward to returning soon."

  • "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."

  • "Melting pot is well known. We got what we expected. Food was good. But for 2 people...$86 is ridiculously expensive to cook your own food."

  • "We had a wonderful server...LUIS...He explained what, where, when, and how. Great advice on flavors etc... The quality of the food was excellent! Everyone had a great time. Only concern is the price. Be prepared $$$"

  • "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."

  • "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."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "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."

  • "I made the mistake of not thinking through the chosen cooking technique of my red meat and lobster. I had to boil it to go along with the pasta selections. PS Our waiter Lees'?? was vary professional brought a great International flare to the table, A wonderful Waiter!! A wonderful time overall. Busboys a tad eager."

  • "I haven't been to a Melting Pot in quite a while (at least 5 years). They have changed the menu, and I preferred the old one. Many things are the same, but especially the salad choices were better before. The mushroom salad is gone. Also, there were four of us who each had the 4-course dinner for two, but they only brought enough cheese dippers for no more than two of us. They were glad to bring refills, but it would have been nicer if we had not had to ask for refills before everyone had been served once. It was Melting Pot, so of course it was nice. But I just preferred the "old" ways. "

  • "Our server for the night was Daphne. She was very thoughtful and responsive to all our requests and was also very fun and fit in well with our table. We were very lucky to be served by her and she took pride in her work! I would definitely ask for her back when we return!"

  • "I have been wanting to try The Melting Pot for many years. For one reason or another, every time we tried to make reservations, something came up or someone in the group did not want to try it. FINALLY, I made reservations for my 59th birthday...and my husband and I were actually were able to follow through on our plans. We were seated immediately. We had a very capable waiter Troy who was able to explain everything about the menu, and who answered all of our questions ably. We chose the four-course option for two, and the food was excellent. We took our time and never felt rushed. We were very happy with our decision to dine here on my birthday. It was a thoroughly positive experience!"
    Dined on 5/18/2014
  • "I had not been to the Melting Pot in over a year and I was pleasantly surprised with the menu changes. I loved that I could choose the 4 course that I wanted and it was very reasonably priced. The service was outstanding. The experience was fantastic. I will add The Melting Pot to my week-night restaurant picks. I definitely will return before my next reason to celebrate. Delicious, fresh, beautiful presentation. A Perfect Night Out Anytime!!! "

  • "My husband and I visited the Virginia Beach location this weekend. We had been to two in Texas and they felt more intimate and a little more geared towards couples. During our visit to the V. B. location we saw that it was more brightly lit and noticeably louder. The booths didn’t really seem to isolate each table, as we had previously experienced, so we overheard much of the conversation around us. While I understand the desire to cater a business to suit a variety of groups, I feel this location missed the mark when it comes to the romantic atmosphere we had come to expect. We didn’t have a bad experience; the food was great and the service was pretty good but the restaurant just seemed to be missing the ambiance we were looking for."
