The Melting Pot - Virginia Beach
Loved itI loved the restaurant..not a single thing you guys need to change :)6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMA REAL Treat!I love the melting pot and the restaurant in VA Beach did not disappoint. We went for our anniversary and it was a wonderful experience. Just the right amount of food and the wait staff times every course perfectly. They are knowledgeable and make recommendations and accommodations to suit your needs. The only thing I would change is the ambiance. We were there for a romantic dinner and the diners two tables over were kind of noisy and we heard all about their lives, their vacation, and her current diet. Maybe they could sit certain diners in certain areas. Either way, we throughly enjoyed the experience of the food and the drinks.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AM18th Birthday CelebrationOur server, Troy, was great! He was very attentive to our table of 8 and even tolerated our little 3-year old daughter for the 2 hours we were there.
I would highly recommend the Spinach Artichoke cheese dip...excellent! Steak lovers entree was very satisfying also.
Can't wait to go back!6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of our favorite places to eat!My parents give my husband & I a gift card to the Melting Pot every year. This year while on vacation we brought the card & went to the one in VA Beach. The place is nice & the food was delicious. I've read reviews of people complaining of spending a good deal of money to cook their own food, but let me tell you-that's why we go! The main course comes with such a variety that we wouldn't (& couldn't) cook at home. The one we ordered had lobster tail, shrimp, chicken, teriyaki steak & beef medallions. We also didn't find the price bad at all with ordering the Fondue for 2, which included all 4 courses for just under $80. And our great waiter Curtis brought out extra dessert so we could finish up our chocolate which made my hubby extra happy!6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat PlaceMy first time there for our 10th anniversary and I was not disappointed, The service was just great, very friendly and talkative without being pushy and very knowledgeable about the menu. The food was awesome, very filling so go with an appetite.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMWe arrived early but wereWe arrived early but were seated right away. Great service. Good food. My wife's favorite restaurant so a natural choice for her birthday!5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Food and ServiceCelebrated a family member's birthday. The food was delicious! Our waiter was extremely knowledgeable about the food and drinks which helped us make the right decisions. The service was outstanding, from our reception upon entering, to our waiter and the busboy. We are looking forward to returning to the restaurant.5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial night outI took my wife out for her birthday. It's been years since last time we've been here. Food was excellent. I think the waitress was new, because service was a little slow. Took about 10 minutes to get our drinks after she came to the table for the first time (after being there 5 minutes). It did speed up over the course of the dinner. We'll definitely come back, I just don't know how soon.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat experience but costlyMy 3kids loved this place because they loved dipping and my youngest thought it was fantastic to cook his own food. I'm glad they enjoyed it but I wouldn't go back unless I won the lottery. Four people got the four course and 3of us got a meal and a salad and one person got a $5.50 salad. The gratuity was added in and it came to $280 with tax. No one had any alcohol and one of those meals was a child's meal. I ordered the "choose 3 "for $23.95 and it was 9 bite sized pieces of raw meat that you cook on a skewer in boiling broth. It may be worth going once for a special occasion but only I you don't mind spending some money. We cooked steak at home the next night and it was much tastier and a whole lot cheaper.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for a nice date nightThis is an excellent place to take the significant other when your in the dog house. It's romantic, fun and every time we have been our server was funny, entertaining and willing to do what ever we needed extremely fast. Expect to spend 120$ not counting tip with a 40$ bottle of wine included.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a great time! Our waiterWe had a great time! Our waiter was wonderful and told us Happy Anniversary--asked us about our first year of marriage and everything while he did the fondue. Really wonderful food--especially the chocolate!
We had a blast!5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMWOW!Had a wonderul night! Food and drinks were great...and the ambiance was very romantic5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazingWords cannot express the wonderful time we had! Our first time there and we had a very experienced, knowledgeable and gracious server. He was more than just a server; he made the dining experience a true feast! And Sharon the manager was very sweet and solicitous without being overbearing. Thank you for an amazing dinner experience. We will definitely be coming back!!!5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything was wonderful exceptEverything was wonderful except they were out of Baileys. Therefore; some of the beverages and one desert were not available.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMAs a group of ten (ALL FIRSTAs a group of ten (ALL FIRST TIMERS)it was wonderful memoriable experience! We had a GREAT waitress & the bartender on duty (David) is the master of his craft. It was my birthday & i loved it.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMPretty Good!!This was a very unique experience for my husband and I on his birthday. This was our very first trip ever to a Melting Pot and definitely worth it. I do, however, think it was way too pricy. I was not completely full when I left and we paid $100 for dinner. You are only allotted 2 skewers per person and it takes too long to cook your food that way, and what you start with gets cold before you are finished fixing everything. Overall though, it was an awesome experience and I do not regret it for a second. The next time I go, I will probably just do dessert considering the price of everything.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Melting Pot was wonderful,The Melting Pot was wonderful, as always! My only complaint would be the 40 minute wait between our salads and entrees.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMTroy was an awesome server.Troy was an awesome server. He explain the menu well and was very patient.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMWorth every penny!If you are looking for a romantic or special occasion resturant this is it! The food was unbelievably great and the waiter even sang to us. :)4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMA dinner to remember!!!!!!!!! :)My wife and I celebrated our 34th wedding anniversary. This was our first visit. We wanted some time to relax and unwind, we spent 2.5 hours eating and reflecting and never felt rushed by your staff, Thank you!!! Everything was outstanding, the food was awesome, the service was second to none, the entire experience was fantastic,espicially our waitress, Bridgette. She was so nice, patient, really cared that our visit was a good one. I felt she went out of her way to make sure we fully understood everything that was going on. WHEN we come back we will request Bridgette, she's the BEST. Thank you Bridgette for making our anniversary even more special.

Highly recommend this resturant to anyone who is looking for a nice, quiet, relazing dinner experience with their significant other!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMwonderful timeloved our server she was very polite and helpful for our first time experience i dont remember her name i only remember her accent but we had a great time3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMFrom a long-time customerGreat for couples or groups. Most extensive wine list around, to include many in-stock that aren't on the list. Food is great and the menu has been changed slightly to give customers more control over what they order. I've brought my kids countless times over the years and they enjoyed it also; the kids are 7 & 9.
Over the years, the customers seem to be wearing increasingly casual attire, when I went the other night a group had on jeans, sweatshirts and toboggans (beanies) and the waitstaff isn't as formal either. I used to enjoy the formal atmosphere, but now it seems the atmosphere no longer matches the $$$$ cost.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, great survece,Great food, great survece, and a great place to have a special night.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat experience for my firstGreat experience for my first time. Excellent service and atmosphere. The few negatives I have are that it was way to expensive for the amount of food you get. Also need more of a variety of broths for cooking.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMBday dinnerThis was a birthday dinner for my girlfriend. The food was delicious as always, and i made in the reservations about the bday celebration they did make my girlfriend feel very special with everyone wishing her happy birthday from the hostess to the bus boy, and adding a candle to the desert. There was a slight annoyance with the bass and music from next door echoing through the walls and right into our table. In previous visits we've been sat on the other side of the restaurant and this wasn't a problem.3/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
