Service was incredibly slow. Not our first time going here and we know what to expect. We were seated for 20 minutes before we were seen by anybody and it took us two hours to have our 4 course meal. Way too little attention was shown to us by the server on a night where the place was 75% empty

The food was not good and very expensive, for what it was. The server and owner kept pushing us to order more. Very uncomfortable in that and I finally more or less demanded that we’d ordered enough. There was no recognition of the birthdays we were celebrating even though we’d notified them when making our reservation. The waiter prepared the first dish incorrectly, which he admitted, so the garlic was raw. We kept asking how to order to know what we were getting and only got answers that we needed to order more. So we ended up with boiled beef, which we would never have ordered. They kept trying to get us to order more drinks, which we said each time we didn’t want. We asked three times for water before it was finally delivered. Then we almost choked on the bill. It was impossible to tell what items cost. Terrible experience.

Fondue is as much about a leisurely event with friends and loved ones as it is about the food. The dining experience at the Melting Pot is superb in all aspects, including a hospitality team that knows how to best support diners without rushing their experience, fresh and diverse ingredients, and an atmosphere/environment that enhances the dining experience. Fondue is not for everyone, but for those families, groups, and couples that want to come together through the shared experience of fooding, the Melting Pot of Fredericksburg is THE place to go!

My family loves to go to the Melting Pot. It is our favorite destination for celebrations - birthdays, SAT scores, etc. Our most recent visit was on their Wizard and Witch Day and we had a blast. There was a special menu with wizarding options and pricing. The kids even got a chocolate frog and pretzel wand. There were fun photo ops too. We highly recommend it for special occasions. It is too expensive for weekly visits but it is a good value for the food and service that you receive.

Really enjoyed most of the evening. It was a little to dim so it made it hard to see if food was cooked adequately, the broth was spicier then at other locations ive visited, and i wish there was a little more cheese and chocolate during their respective courses.

Our waitress didn’t know how to use the wine opener for the bottle we ordered and just awkwardly stood there until someone finally came to help her. We also asked for additional dippers durning our cheese course and didn’t get them. Also during our desert we waited an overly long time for her to check on us and ask if we wanted any additional dippers. Overall the food was good as always and the atmosphere was nice. Just not the amazing service we have grown use to getting from our servers.

The Melting Pot is our favorite date night dinner choice! My husband and I have been going to the Melting Pot in Fredericksburg, VA since we were in high school! We went for dinner before prom twice! We love the four course experience even though we never get the salads. We normally always get something extra to replace our salads complimentary to from the boss and it’s normally the extra desert plate which is delicious! I will always recommend the Melting Pot to friends and family.

We found the restaurant’s management to be accommodating, they were very busy but our waiter, Seth did a good job of informing us how the menu and food prep worked. Service was a bit slow but we were having a good time so it was ok.

Our waitress Morgan was great. She zeroed I’m on my food intolerances and ensured no part of my meal would poison me. I appreciate the extra work she put in. The manager (I assume because he didn’t introduce himself) was frequently at our table checking up on things. The only thing I didn’t really enjoy was the food itself. My husband like the food just fine. The bread seemed stale. The marinades for the meats were too strong for my taste, but that can’t be helped. Overall it was a good experience.

We came at noon on the Sunday after Valentines weekend just as the restaurant opened. Service was fantastic. Only complaint was the meat we were served. The scallops were very fishy, the chicken was dried out and tough.... Also the angus beef came with 2 TINY slices of meat. The filet mignon came with 5 times that amount! And the angus was coated in some seasoning that was not mentioned on the menu - even though the menu is very discriptive of everything else!??
We were guessing that we were served some items that had been prepared for the weekend rush and were leftover. 😕 at $50+ each for lunch that is unacceptable.

We went to celebrate two birthdays and it was the first time for my friend from New York. Absolutely everything was delicious, and no matter which choices you pick, everyone will totally enjoy this four course meal! My friend is already planning to take her family out to eat at a Melting Pot Restaurant in New York when she gets back?

We thoroughly enjoyed our wedding anniversary at the Fredericksburg Melting Pot. Our wait staff was attentive and knowledgeable. We were able to engage in meaningful conversation with little to no distraction from other tables. Our experience was amazing from the ease of scheduling a reservation, the wonderful food and drinks, to the special anniversary package. A night we will cherish always.
