The melting pot is our favorite restaurant as they cater to our need for gluten-free and dairy-free dining.

Went for our 1-year anniversary. Nice, quiet table for 2. We shared the Big Night Out and had 2 bar drinks. The food and drinks were VERY good. Waitress was very personable and was very attentive to our table, making sure we had everything we needed without being overbearing. We were not in a hurry at all, but I would suggest blocking out a 2 hour block of time to enjoy your meal, perhaps 2.5 hours if you go with a larger group. Also a good spot if you're just looking to get one course, such as a stop in for a chocolate fondue and a drink. We will definitely be back!

Food: not worth the price
Experience: mediocre
Service: deplorable
Price: overrated

The timing between courses was lacking. We found ourselves waiting on our server for each section of the meal -- including the beginning when they are supposed to acknowledge you. Drink refills and the courses were very far between.

A manager had to fill my water glass himself twice because our server disappeared. We even had to wait for the server just to pay so we can leave. In the end, he extended his fist to me expecting me to give him a fist bump. Is that common practice for a server even in these COVID times? Very weird and uncalled for.

We were excited to come here and left very disappointed with the experience. This was our first time to any Melting Pot Restaurant and this is also the last.

Been here many times. Always a birthday spot for my wife. We just do the cheese course and chocolate and it is always great. Service was fantastic as always. We tried the Cookie Butter Crunch for our dessert course and it didn't disappoint. Something a "little" bit different than a typical chocolate and it was awesome.

Was our first time. We went for my daughters birthday. Did not know what to expect. She loved it Food was meager but the experience was fun for her.

The price point was that of fine dining. So I was a little surprised. Service was great.

The Melting Pot is my wife and I's favorite restaurant in the Virginia Beach area. We try and go as often as we can for any reason we can find. Birthdays, anniversary, baby moon before the baby arrived and just about any reason we can find to go. Yes the food is a bit expensive but its completely worth every penny. We practically roll out of the restaurant, and the staff is always very friendly, very attentive, and always provide 5 star service, Ashley and Demetrius are our waitress and waiter of choice. But regardless highly highly recommended!!!!!

Dinner was awesome, first time out since March, felt very safe, prices seemed to be up and portions seemed down, but given the current climate we understood. Waiter got a few things wrong, but overall we had a great night out and certainly recommend this place.

With separate booths and limited capacity due the virus, it was very quiet in the restaurant which made it great for talking to each other. The service was excellent and the food was great as always. And they didn't mind strange requests (my guest was allergic to chocolate, so he had just strawberries for his dessert which he loves!).

I love the melting pot. Took my friend here for her birthday and she loved it as well. This location is not the best though. Our table was quite small for all the food to fit and for us to be comfortable. I have been to a couple nicer melting pot locations where it gives you more of a 5 star experience.

We arrived early and were seated almost immediately. We had the most attentive server who even remembered it was our third anniversary. He brought out a small little treat after our meal with Happy 3rd Anniversary written in chocolate.
