    Everything was fantastic! We were here to celebrate my promotion at work, and it was my family's first time coming to Melting Pot. The staff made us feel so welcome, and it was truly special to celebrate with them. I've been here a few times before, and everything is always excellent. Thank you!

    This is the first time I visited The Melting Pot and I was joined by three other guests. Service was very good as was the food. My main complaint was with the seating. When we arrived, we were seated at a small table with a single burner. This meant the four diners had to agree on all courses (type of cheese fondue, entree cooking style and dessert fondue) instead of being able to sample different dishes. We asked for a larger table with two burners, but none were available. Since this was my first visit to The Melting Pot, I'm disappointed that I had no way of knowing that I could have requested more burners.
    The Melting Pot - CharlottesvilleResponded on February 3, 2024
    MikeE, Thank you for your review. We appreciate you leaving us your feedback. Yes you may ask for more than one burner when you make a reservation. We try to accommodate 4 tables with 2 burners if possible. 2 burner tables are usually for 5 guests or more or for guests that are dining with someone who has a severe food allergy. For the future we will try any way possible to make that happen. You can also request more than one cheese or chocolate at a one burner table and we can cook the other cheese or chocolate after you are finished with your first option. I hope this is helpful for a future visit. If you ask for me, I will make sure next time you are in, to get a double burner table so you can try more options. Thank you again for your review. Cheers, Samantha C General Manager

    The staff and food were excellent, but the whole experience felt rushed. We've been to many Melting Pot locations over the last 30 years, and every time we visit, it feels like less of an experience and more of an exercise in turning over tables. This was the first time our salads showed up along with our cheese course, and we were never offered after dinner drinks or coffee. Again, we don't blame the staff; this feels more like a corporate decision, which is sad. (Also, they no longer have cocktail sauce for the shrimp???? Is this the case at all locations? Seems odd, as the stuff was like crack.)
    The Melting Pot - CharlottesvilleResponded on January 23, 2024
    MarkH, Thank you for your review. I do want to apologize for your experience and that fact you felt rushed. This is never our intention to make a guest not enjoy their experience. The salads should have not been delivered right with the cheese so I will look into that, thank you very much for this information. Sadly, we were just out of cocktail sauce for that day, but we will have it back for the next time you visit. Thank you again for your review. I will use this for our daily training. Hope to have you again soon Mark. Cheers, Samantha Craun General Manager

    We had Laii as a server and she was nicely vivacious and welcoming. We felt a little rushed- still finishing our cheese course and salads came. We waited a long time for ice water. We might have ordered another drink if asked. During the dessert course we got our bill- again rushed. All in all we dined in a little over an hour!

    I would not recommend The Melting Pot. The cheese were bland and they were not hot, even though they were in pots on the table. The sides of bread, fruit and vegetables were mainly just chunks of bread and very few veggies. Not worth going for a decent meal.

    It began great, until our server made multiple rude comments on our eating. We were fully annoyed by dessert so we requested to have it packed up for take out. Upon, returning home we opened it to find a small layer of chocolate and a few banana slices covering the bottom on a small container. I am assuming this is why the general manager who scanned my husband’s birthday email like we were trying to rob the place of 6 strawberries, threw a cheese fondue coupon in our bag. Completely regret bringing my husband there for his birthday.

    Our waitress was amazing! The ability to substitute most things is appreciated. However, the portion sizes were noticeably smaller with the meat. The white chocolate was definitely not up to par. Some of the steak options weren’t available or are now an up charge. For an almost empty restaurant, we were shocked that our meal took twice as long as usual based on previous visits. 3 hours is just too long. Especially when you have to pay for parking. For a group that was 3x bigger than our usual visits here, we didn’t feel like we had triple amounts of cheese or chocolate.

    I ordered the dirty martini that the menu stated came with Gorgonzola stuffed olives. The drink had way to much olive juice and no stuffed olives. They said I had to request them even though it was listed as part of the drink on the menu. My daughter ordered the bacon salad because she loves bacon. They brought the salad with the wrong dressing and no bacon but did fix it when we asked. We did not get steak knives with our entree so meat was hard to cut. They were out of the wine we ordered but did comp us for that. After entrees we’re delivered we did not see our server for a while and needed water. Our sever was very friendly, passionate and knowledgeable. I guess it was just lots of little things that didn’t make for a “great” experience. When you are charging the prices they have, everything should be close to perfect and it wasn’t. That being said the servers friendliness and comped wine made up for it.
    The Melting Pot - CharlottesvilleResponded on November 11, 2023
    KaraC, I apologize that you did not receive the Perfect night out last night on your visit. I will be making sure all drinks do come out with stuffed olives, like they should have the first time. I am pleased to hear you did enjoy your server Z. He definitely has a charming personality. I do hope you come back soon to enjoy a perfect night out that you should have received the first time. I appreciate your review so I can train the staff so nights like this dont happen again. Thank you Samantha Craun General Manager

    Overall real nice, not much meat for a “ big dinner for two”.
    The Melting Pot - CharlottesvilleResponded on September 20, 2023
    AnthonyM, Thank you for the 4 star review! With our Big Night Out, it is a portion and a half more meat for that order, but we can always add more meat if you prefer. Next time you dine with us, please ask for me, Samantha, and I will happily get you that perfect meal! We appreciate you taking the time to leave a review. Hope to have you back dining with us soon. Cheers, Samantha Craun General Manager

    I enjoyed a fabulous dinner with 7 of my college roommates for a 45 year reunion of us meeting our freshman year. James was a spectacular server and happily accommodated every need & want during our entire dining experience. Couldn’t have asked for a more wonderful dining experience!!!!

    RandiM, It was a pleasure getting to speak with you all during your visit on Saturday night. We enjoyed having all of you ladies and I am thrilled you all had fun!!! Such a treat watching all 7 of you ladies talk and enjoy your meal and get to catch up with each other. We do hope your next gathering can be back with us! Safe travels and thank you so much for the fantastic review! I know James will be happy to see this review as well!! Cheers, Samantha Craun General Manager

    This was our first Melting Pot dinner (Altho we are fondue lovers) and we had the experience for two. It was amazing! What really made our experience special was Mya, our server. She knew everything about everything, and she was so helpful. When it came time for chocolate fondue, we were pretty full and she showed us exactly how to capture some of that goodness and bring it home. Mya is outstanding and so is the food and ambience!

    The food is uninspired, bad sauces, not fresh vegetables and poor quality meat. There are many sauces, but none of them have any character. The fruit was awful, bitter and soft and heavily soaked in some sort of preservative. All of this might have been slightly more acceptable, if the cost was not so high. Very poor to average food, that is very expensive. I do not review very often, but feel people should be warned
