The Melting Pot - Richmond
Lunch also available weekdays for parties of any size with at least one day advance notice.
I do think it's over priced, when you can go to a REALLY nice restaurant and have an awesome dinner that you don't have to cook, for less than what you can get out of The Melting Pot for. I would only go back for the bread/fruit & cheese dip and/or chocolate dessert with cocktails and skip the meats portion.
Our waiter was amazing! We had a great time.
Much better since a grill option for the meat has been added.
Took my mom and daughter to the Melting Pot for the first time. We made reservations and were seated once everyone arrived. The restaurant was surprisingly spacious inside. Food and drinks were delectable.
Unfortunately, towards the end of the evening our chocolate fondue was forgotten. We sat there which seemed like forever waiting for the kitchen and manager to try and rectify the problem. Needless to say we were not happy about that.
But they were kind enough to take it off our bill at the end.
The worst experience I have every had at a restaurant. I will never be back.
we went here for our anniversary, wanting a different experience. It was great the food was excellent and the staff very informative and helpful. it was unique and different and we really enjoyed the dining experience. probably go back for other special occasions.
Portion amounts less than what it used to be in the past.
Absolutely, without a doubt, hands down, no questions asked the best restaurant I have ever been to. Everything was amazing definitely worth every penny.
I took my beautiful girlfriend out for her birthday dinner and I wasn’t expecting to but I think I may have enjoyed it even more than she did! It was a fun experience that made dining out much more interesting. The food was great, too! Devin was a great server.
I was not excited to go here as I wanted “real food”. In the end, it exceeded expectations. Will go again. We did the 4 course which I would not do again as it was simply too much food. The first cheese course is exceptional and so is the dessert. When we go again, we will just have those two courses which is not the most healthy meal, but for date night is a lot of fun.
Gavin and the server he was training was top notch on service. An excellent dining experience.
We would come back for appetizers and/or dessert...a lot of money to basically boil your own dinner...filet mignon boiled is just so sad...the chocolate is fabulous though!!
Overall fantastic experience and Devon our server was awesome
I've been coming to the Melting Pot in Richmond, VA for years, and try to make it here once or twice a year. It's a unique experience that I like to share with the special people in my life.
Romantic restaurant for an intimate date. Fondue is delicious and service is wonderful. Get the four course dinner! I love The Melting Pot!
We celebrated my daughters 11th birthday with some of her friends. One has some allergies. The manager, waiter and other staff were so attentive to her needs without making her feel out of place. All of the girls had a great time and it was the “best birthday ever”
Nice girls dinner for my mom’s 60th birthday. No one had ever dined there besides me, the experience and our server did not disappoint.
We eat at this location probably once every two weeks and the servers are always on point and the managers are excellent.
Great every time we go! Kids love it!!! Server, Andy, was amazing!
Everthing was amazing! The only thing that I was a little upset about was that I wrote in the reservation box that it was my boyfriends birthday, and they didn't mention it or bring out the little cheesecake. Other than that, Melting Pot remains my favorite fine dining and special occasion establishment!
Billy was awesome. Great birthday for my husband!!
Excellent service, the food was great!! It’s a great place to get away, relax and enjoy each other’s company.
Brandon was great! He did all we asked and more. we and our grandchild was very happy with Brandon. We ordered the cheese and chocolate fondues. We spend $100 and ordered no meat. Thought that was too much.
Celebrated my boyfriend’s birthday. Had a great time. They even made a Vesper martini...something no longer in their menu.
Very enjoyable, intimate and cozy table for two. We will be back!
Our group of 8 experienced the dining experience of "The Melting Pot". Food options for the entrees were diverse and very good. The experience of patrons cooking entrees at the table was satisfying and rewarding. Great special occasion spot.
Great time for our whole party! Server was awesome!
Great! We had a great time.
Service was terrible. I’m not sure if the waiter had any experience. He was nice but very inexperienced for a upscale restaurant.
Still think the price point of melting pot is high considering the meat you get always seems tough and low quality. Never the less it’s always good for a date night as the vibe is more intimate and a change up from traditional dining.
It was amazing, it was my husband's birthday and we'd never been here before. Our server Cam was great and very helpful. All of the servers were really professional and polite. The food was better than described...only quip is there should be more of the chocolate fondue when served.
Is very Gluten-free friendly, my granddaughter really enjoyed the G-free bread, brownie, & cake. Background music a little too loud for intimate conversation. Greatly enjoyed the different fondues & varieties of foods. Server Taylor excellent!
Tori was our waitress and brought us everything we needed right away. She wasn’t too chatty but chatty enough. The food was delicious and we enjoyed everything we had. We will definitely come back. Thank you Tori for maki our night special.
Service was incredibly slow. Over 2 and a half hours for a dinner service. Refills, water no where to be found. At the price they are asking your service should be excellent. Won’t be back anytime soon.
Food is very good as well as service.
The price continues to be quite high.
Everything was absolutely wonderful! My fiancé and I loved it, can't wait come back!
I would recommend this for people having a special occasion get together or a special night out.
The service was great - even the manager came over to see how we were doing! Fun way to enjoy dinner. On the expensive side so can't go here very often at all.
Great food, Great service, overall Great experience!
