We ate here for a birthday dinner/ date night. We are never disappointed each time we come. The food was high quality and outstanding to say the least. The service was great. The melting pot is a unique dining experience and we love it every time
Thanks so much Katie for doing the survey.
Wonderful “iron” anniversary at the melting pot! Lovely dinner specials made for a delicious surprise
Thanks for the 5 star review and for taking the time to do the survey.
Our family visited Melting Pot on August 19th and had an exceptional experience, the food, ambiance, service, everything from the beginning to the end was exceptional.
Thanks Lucy for the great review.
Great experience and meal. Look forward to the next trip there!
Thanks Lisa for the great review
Awesome service. Attention to details. We were not rushed. Relaxing atmosphere.
Thanks CharlotteB for the great review that you left for us. Our staff does a wonderful job thanks for recognizing them.
It was our 18th wedding anniversary and it was an amazing experience as always. We will be back soon!
Every time we go to UVA hospital we eat at the melting pot (we’re from martinsburg,wv). Always a great experience.
THANKS TINA FOR ALWAYS COMING OVER THE YEARS GLAD YOUR HUSBAND IS DOING WELL. THANKS FOR THE SURVEY TO.
This was so much fun for our family. The kids absolutely loved it. Was delicious. Brandon was delightful. Great service and a night for the memory book!
Thanks for taking the time to give us feedback. So glad that you and your kids had a great time.
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.
Excellent food, service and dining experience!
THANKS A TON FOR THE GREAT REVIEW
Nicole was amazing!
THANKS SO MUCH AND WE LOVE NICOLE SHE HAS BEEN SUCH A GREAT ADDITION TO OUR TEAM.
First time at MP. Menu was a bit confusing with all the options. Once we understood the process and ordered we throughly enjoyed the experience. All entries in our party of 3 were scrumptious. Dessert was our favorite with the dark chocolate fondue. Accommodating with GF options. We will be back.
THANKS FOR TRYING US OUT AND FOR THE FEEDBACK.
Amazing UVA graduation dinner! We were so lucky to get a reservation in Charlottesville this weekend. The food was great as always and Z’s service was even better. Despite being very busy with many other graduation dinners, Z and the rest of their team went out of the way to make our evening very special. Would highly recommend for a special occasion, date night, or just a great dining experience.
THANKS SO MUCH FOR YOUR KIND WORDS. WE ARE REALLY HAPPY EVERYONE HAD A GREAT TIME AND CONGRATULATIONS AGAIN. Z IS GREAT BY THE WAY
I think this experience is best with seven or eight people at an open round table. The food was really good but there were three of us crammed into a booth.
I will definitely do it again, but with a larger party!
Bring your appetite because it’s a lot of food...
Very tasty meal. Always feels like a special occasion to go here!
We had Mother's Day lunch there. Good food and service. We will go back.
THANKS FOR DOING THE SURVEY
Always a pleasure to dine at the Melting Pot, they never disappoint! Wonderful ambiance, service, food quality -can’t wait to return, thank you Sammie and the staff for a wonderful experience 😀❤️🌈
Sammie is a great part of our team thank you for recognizing her.
Restaurant was great. Owner was great and courteous. Waiter didn’t say much- only asked us for our drink order. Kind of like he didn’t want to be there. We all have bad days.
I am very sorry about the service please forgive us but thank you for doing the review and for your feedback.
Was there to celebrate my daughters 20th birthday for the 2nd time w family members. Food was very good and well worth the 1 1/2 drive.
Thanks for the 5 star review that you left.
We were Celebrating my daughters bday at her favorite special occasion restaurant for a late lunch. Was absolutely perfect and one of the only ones in the restaurant was amazing!
THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE AWESOME REVIEW THAT YOU LEFT.
Fun and tasty experience! We will definitely be back again.
THANK YOU FOR DINING WITH US.
Good place for a Monday night dinner. Service was very good.
Great service and friendly staff! Food was delicious and fresh!
THANKS FOR THE GREAT REVIEW AND COMMENTS.
Had an anniversary dinner here. Bwould highly recommend this for a special occasion.
WE ARE SO GLAD THAT YOU HAD A GREAT ANNIVERSARY DINNER
Booked for 2pm on Friday. After paying $ parking garage and walking to restaurant to celebrate wife’s birthday, found out you were closed despite getting a booking confirmation. Not going to bore you with the cascade of events but needless to say I learned my lesson not to trust your restaurant nor OpenTable.
I am very sorry for the confusion but we were open on Friday. Normally we only open on weekend for lunch but had early tables this past Friday. I am so sorry for the confusion. Would love to get another opportunity with you.
good experience but not worth the money. make sure you know what menu is there that night. ended up spending $237 on two people and only expected to spend $150.
HAD A GREAT TIME CELEBRATING VALENTINE DAY WITH MY HUSBAND
Thanks so much for the perfect review that you left for us.
I’ve been to melting pot before but this didn’t reach my memory’s of the past. Food was okay service was great felt quick tho like our server wanted to bring us our food and leave. From my past experiences it was different and in my eyes it wasn’t worth the money.
Wonderful experience & great food. Service was excellent. Our server was so sweet. Thank you for a great first date!
Call me if you’re curious (757)354-6356!
Great food, service, and atmosphere. We will go back.
THANKS FOR THE GREAT COMMENTS.
Excellent experience! Great food and service and was happy they made the cheese and chocolate at the table. The Richmond restaurant has stopped that practice so I would highly recommend traveling to the Charlottesville Melting Pot to get the true experience.
THANKS FOR THE GREAT REVIEW AND FOR DINING WITH US. WE LOVE MAKING CHEESE AT THE TABLE
It was a one year anniversary dinner. Great experience.
HAPPY ANNIVERSARY AGAIN AND THANKS FOR PICKING US
made the reservation last minute and they were able to accommodate us. we’ve been talking about melting pot forever!! service and food were excellent. such a friendly staff. had a really nice evening! thank you melting pot charlottesville!
Thanks SO MUCH FOR THE FEEDBACK AND FOR PICKING US TO DINE WITH.
The server was very knowledgeable helpful attentive and best of all positive and sweet.
Thanks so much for the great review that you left for us.
Ordered two specialty drinks in a row. First one was good, the second one tasted weird and when we mentioned it to the waitress she just laughed it off and did not offer to correct it. Waitress was full of personality but we felt pretty rushed during our experience. Our salads came stacked on top of our cheese course. No one ever asked what kind of broth we wanted to cook in. Burner took forever to get up to temp. The chicken was weirdly tough and rubbery like it had been defrosted in the microwave or something? Also, one of us ordered a water and she offered sparkling water. Did not know we were getting a giant overpriced bottle of Pellegrino. When we come to the melting pot and drop that much money, we are usually there to splurge and be treated well. Honestly feel like I could’ve gotten better quality and service for a quarter of the money at the local burger joint down the road. Definitely did not feel like a $200 experience. Waitress’ personality is the only thing that saved it from being a bust.
Prices are high but it’s a lot of food to enjoy and tastes good. Best to go with a group and share.
Thanks for the feedback
We had a wonderful dinner. Always enjoy the food and service:). Ask for extra green goddess and fill your mushrooms:).
MY WIFE LOVES THAT SAME COMBINATION
We come to this restaurant each year as my husband has appointments at UVA. We are never disappointed in the food or the service. We look forward to this every December. Wish they would open one in Winchester or closer to martinsburg WV.. we’d eat at a Melting Pot more often.
MAYBE ONE DAY BUT THANK YOU FOR MAKING THE TRIP TO SEE US
