Diner Reviews
  • "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."

  • "Our server, Florianna, was wonderful. She was attentive without being overbearing. She answered any questions we had and was very polite. She even put a candle on a piece of cake for my spouse's birthday."

  • "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 friend was having her 66th birthday and we choose Melting Pot. First time for me, but the others had been there years before. We had fun selecting our dishes. Eating was a slow process - it allowed us to talk and enjoy each others company. All around a great place for special occasions!"

  • "The Melting Pot in Virginia Beach is so delicious! The service was great. I only wish the tables were a bit more private like the one in Jacksonville, Florida. But overall I give it five stars."

  • "Everything was really nice about the experience. It's just that the staff was cleaning and scrubbing the tables beside ours and making a lot of noise. They were not closed and still open for quite some time. This was rude and made us feel rushed."

  • "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!"

  • "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."

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

  • "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."
