Excellent restaurant they always accommodate my special requests. I just don’t understand why they have is stand around for 10 minutes when we already have reservations, normally when restaurants have this as part of their “process” theres a waiting area with chairs or a bar option.
Other than the awkward wait... is an excellent restaurant no questions asked.

We’ve been to many melting pots and this one was awesome. Our server, Dillon, did a fantastic job and was always courteous and professional. We definitely recommend this location.

First time having fondue and it was a lot of fun. The table was a little small and crowded for the two of us but it was cozy, we enjoyed the jazz music, our waiter was extremely pleasant and the food was good. I feel a more diverse selection of veggies would have been nice for the cheese fondue and entree but we enjoyed our experience immensely.

It was my fiancé’s birthday and our first time coming to the restaurant. The server was extremely helpful at explaining how the dinning experience worked and was very patient with our questions. Since it was a special occasion, we had all four courses and the food was excellent. Each course was fresh and delightfully delicious.

Our server was fantastic! I wish I’d remembered to grab his card and complete the survey. We were dining with a 5 year old and a 1 year old and he was AMAZING! But the kids were at the end of their rope towards the end of the 3rd course so we quickly ate dessert and scooted out. Amazing food, great service!

I forgot our card so i could fill out for the waitress and what a great job she did. I had questions and she got the answers for my table. She greeted my 3 kids and myself. She made the experience fornthe kids first time awesome. Very thankful for The melting Pot being open on Easter as my husband the our 3 kiddos father was away for a job with the Navy and Easter wasnt the same for them but thus made there day.

The food was excellent though a bit expensive for how little food there is. However, the service was appallingly poor. I'll first say that the waitress was attentive, polite, and I have absolutely nothing negative to say about her. However, we were seated forty minutes past our reservation time. We did not receive an apology or explanation for this delay. The two hostesses were incredibly rude to everyone who came through the door and acted like they were doing us a favor by speaking to us. We asked once (about twenty minutes past our reservation time) for a time estimate and the hostess just rolled her eyes and said "five minutes." For what it's worth, we waited another twenty. The food was good, but not good enough to put up with that. I won't be returning.

The three of us enjoyed our evening at The Melting Pot in Virginia Beach. I've been to other locations, but new to this one. The service was great, and the food was very good. My sister is gluten intolerant, so she was over the moon thrilled with the gluten free options for every course.

We had a reservation for 5 people, on a wednesday evening, and had ordered a box of chocolate covered strawberries with an email coupon from the restaurant. I tried to make the reservation for 7pm, but they told me the only reservation available for 5 guests was at 6:30, so we took that. (I still cant figure out how that makes sense though) An accident on the interstate shut two lanes and caused us to be 15 minutes late. I called to tell them about it while we were crawling through traffic and they said theyd just mark that we would be a bit late. We were in the building by 6:45, the restaurant was not crowded, and the manager (I assume) was not happy that 2 members of our group would be a bit further behind, and suggested we wait to be seated (?) because we couldn’t start without them but i said no. They seated us at a 4 seat, single pot table. When i asked how 5 would fit, the waitress said she would pull a chair up to the end, and left. We all looked at the small table, the narrow aisle, and when she returned i said the table would not work, we’d need a table which accommodated 5 adults. She had to get the manager, who asked why the table wouldn’t work, then was surprised to hear the other two guests also expected to eat dinner. (???) He left and the watress returned and escorted us to a table which had two pots and would seat 6. We ordered our salads, the other two arrived a few minutes later, and we had cheese and the main course. I asked about the strawberries, which i had confirmed on the phone, and the waitress said I’d need to email the coupon to the manager and she’d see if they could get them done because they need 24 hrs notice, and i told her they had been confirmed on the reservation days ago. In the end, the waitress was nice, but not as cordial and friendly as im used to at the melting pot, the food was very good, as usual, but the birthday event i had so highly recommended to my friends was a disappointment, because we felt unwelcome.

Overall we had an amazing experience. There was a minor issue with having to wait 30 minutes even with having reservations due to previous guests taking longer than the staff had expected but otherwise it was fantastic. Our server, Joshua, was phenomenal and made the whole experience memorable.
