The Melting Pot - Charlottesville
Our server Scott needs to be acknowledged. He was extremely personable and professional. He gave us a wonderful special experience and we will be back soon.
We had a wonderful time. Our waiter, Clay, was great- very attentive and helpful. Excellent service. Food was delicious as always.
Amazing place to eat!! Food was perfect!
Go hungry. The four course option is a lot of food. The waiter was friendly and helpful. Very fun and different
This is the favorite restaurant of our children...they love the idea of cooking their own food and setting a timer for it to be done. It is delicious and fun.
Great experience as always!!!!
We eat here frequently and are never disappointed. Had a newer waiter and he was very personable and friendly. Always great food.
Great experience! Waiter Tim was awesome! We would definitely recommend.
The Melting Pot is our favorite place to go for special occasions! Melted cheese, a large selections of meats and pastas to choose from and cook yourself in the type of broth or oil that you decide, and the meal ends with melted chocolate! What is not to love?
It was fantastic!
First time and it was awesome, great food best waiter, great service
We celebrated our "second" first date and couldn't have picked a better place. Giving credit where credit is due, it was his decision. The fondue was amazing! Received great value for our money (his 😁) and the service was outstanding! Thank you to our server for making it a very special evening. We'll be back!
The food is always exceptional and the service is great and friendly. We enjoy coming here for special occasions! By far my favorite restaurant.
It was great! Love the atmosphere. Will definitely be coming back!
First, I want to say that I understand that a dinner at The Melting Pot is about the fun experience. I get it. It’s also important to point out that the service was fantastic - had a great server and the restaurant is clean and well done from a decorating perspective. The reason for the lower rating is simply that the food is average at best and the price, in relation to the quality of the food, is above average. However, if you want a fun experience and that is more important than the quality and price of the meal, this is probably a great place for you to visit.
We celebrated UVA graduation here. It was a lot of fun and the food was good. We opted for the 4 course meal so it took awhile - but we enjoyed it. The cheese and chocolate fondues were our favorites. We consistently under- or over-cooked the meats despite the directions given to us.
The food was good but the experience topped it off. We had such a great time! Our server was very helpful and the food was very good. Loved it. Would go back in a heartbeat.
Amazing as always. We love coming to the melting pot.
We celebrated my daughter’s first communion here and had the best time! I was surprised to find how much better it was than other Melting Pot restaurants we have been to and every one was blown away by the delicious variety of sauces that accompanied the already awesome fondue. Clay was our server and he was great! All servers were attentive and it was a great atmosphere.
Had a very enjoyable dinner for our 25th anniversary. Friendly staff. Great food
Very nice server and food. We had great time, new experience. We went for four course meal and definitely sea food is best in this form. Best part is chocolate fondue.
The type of food offered here is different than most places. Its interesting, fun, and helps you connect with the people you’re eating with and with your server. The staff is very nice and helpful. The food is really good, but I think it’s a bit overpriced. You’re mostly paying for the atmosphere and the experience in general.
Every time we go there are new things to try! It's now a tradition to celebrate our wedding anniversary (5 years and running) at the Melting Pot in Charlottesville, VA. Everything is always delicious and the staff is always very polite and accommodating..
It was a really neat experience! My husband and I enjoyed it a lot. I do wish the bathrooms were in a different location, I got hit in the face by a tray full of food while waiting to use it. The server did apologize and was sincere, it just hurt. We still will come here again. The service was great, wonderful staff!
Had a great time. There was one small issue with a sauce that was bad and had to be sent back, but overall everything was good.
We went to celebrate our anniversary and the service staff greeted us with a "HAPPY ANNIVERSARY" then there was a card at our table signed by the staff. Very touching!
The food was excellent and the atmosphere was very cozy and romantic. We had a fantastic time.
Just stopped in for Cheese Fondue and Salads. Food was wonderful and the service was great
I've never eaten at a Melting Pot before, and might be 35-40 years away from my last fondue, but this provided a generous and lovely Easter Dinner. We both shared the Land and Sea mix, and the Quattro Formaggio cheese. It was all fine, service was good, there was more than we could eat. The coq au vin cooking 'medium' smelled and tasted great, and the chocolate fondue at the end (flaming turtle) was a brilliant ending. It's pricey but it's a long patient meal, which felt gracious and comfortable.
We felt pressured to purchase a bigger, more expensive meal than we wanted. Also we were charged incorrectly. The special promo we came for was left off the bill. They promptly fixed the problem, but it wasn't relaxing feeling pressured during our visit.
Our server Amy was so sweet! She was new and it showed a little but she was super down to earth and did a really good job explaining the menu to us.
The fondue was great but we weren’t a huge fan of the meats. Our cooking broth overtook the flavor of most of the entree.
Dessert was absolutely amazing.
Have a wonderful evening with my date. Ordered flowers that were there upon arrival. Wonderful evening.
Unforgettable experience, great service and very romantic
This was our first time going and we had a wonderful time. Our waiter Clay was fabulous and we will be going back again!
Great service by new server Alexix. Very knowledgeable. Great atmosphere. Wonderful evening.
The restaurant seems to be after the higher end customers. There was a large selection of wine and alcohol. The meals were great with the exception of small meat portions.
Clay was an amazing server and made the experience awesome!
Wonderful evening celebrating our birthdays (mine and my best girlfriend). Kat was our server and she was lovely - very personable and made recommendations that were perfect for our tastes and the occasion. Zale also helped serve us (refiled our water glasses and worked in the kitchen - made our chocolate fondu) and was absolutely a delight. We had an absolutely positive experience. This was the second year that we drove 1.5 hours to C'ville for this "experience" to celebrate our birthdays and will make it an annual tradition. Thanks, Melting Pot, and especially thanks to Kat and Zale who made our evening exceptionally enjoyable and worth the drive up!
Super waiter, outstanding service!
The Melting Pot is perfect for a night out. The service was amazing and the whole eating experience is super fun and tasty. Because it is a bit pricey, the Melting Pot is perfect for special occasions.
