Absolutely horrible experience. No clue we couldn't order from regular menu. Neither of us wanted anything but chicken and it was $250 for a dinner we didn't even eat. Nothing was good. Totally horrible new years experience. Will never go back. Will make sure everyone I know hears of this experience.

Our grandkids love this restaurant so we only dine there with them (10 and 12). We dined on Nee Year’s Eve and we were unaware that there would be a. Special menu. The cost was $89 per person! Kids were able to dine off the kids! Menu, luckily. Menu was no different than other menus except for a small shrimp cocktail and small glass of champagne. The main course is very heavy on proteins and light on veggies and potatoes. Service was slow and the dinner dragged on for 2/ 1/2 hours. Fondue cheese and dessert sauces were very good. The wealth of great dining places abound here so I would put this place near the bottom.

This was our first time eating at a Melting Pot restaurant. Yes, it is costly but worth every penny if you have the funds. The owner greeted us and checked on us about halfway through the dinner. Matthew, our waiter, was very knowledgeable and very attentive to the needs of our table. We were celebrating my son's B-day and they had a B-day card waiting for him at the table when we arrived.
Also, their restrooms were the cleanest I have seen in a restaurant facility in a long time. Way to go cleaning staff!
And I have to mention the staff person, Clay, that answered the phone when I called for information prior to making our reservation. He was very courteous and answered all my questions with extreme professionalism.
Thanks to all the staff at the Charlottesville-The Melting Pot for great food and service!!!

I had a build-your-own fondue. The veggie pasta sack was good; the shrimp and chicken less so - but ok. The vegetables that are put in to cook stayed hard for a long time - including cut potatoes. The broccoli got overcooked but was still hard. The mushrooms were good as was the flavor of the coq au vin broth.
Also had a chocolate fondue (dark chocolate). Way too sweet. Fruit dippers were good; I would skip the 'sweet treats' like brownies unless you have a heavy-duty sweet tooth. Would be nice if one could just order fruit for this.
Staff was pleasant as it the ambiance.

We were rushed by the guy at the front desk. He would made rounds obviously checking in to see how far we were with dinner. He, not our waitress, gave us our check and waited their until I could get my credit card out. Additionally they said they would validate for the parking garage ... and as we left, we still had to pay for parking.
For $150 check, I feel like we could eat without being watched or rushed.
We have been there many times prior with a much better experience.
