The Melting Pot - Virginia Beach
Went for my daughters birthday. Had reservations. We scheduled an early dinner (5:15 pm). When we were sat, it seemed they sat us at the smallest booth they could. The restaurant was empty. My wife has an issue with dairy so I asked if we could move to a table with two pots. I realize that my wife’s issue doesn’t mean everyone else has to move heaven and earth. The hostess didn’t even try. Our waitress Mia was fantastic! However, when I asked for further explanation , the hostess didn’t even bother to come over. She just would walk by and try to not look at you.
I have a lot of respect for people who are actually working right now. However, the lack of communication and the indifference from the hostess will keep me from visiting this restaurant anytime in the near future. Won’t return, won’t recommend .
Great place for Christmas Eve dinner.
Wonderful date night! Highly recommend :)
It was amazing!! Our waitress was so fantastic!!
Very disappointed. We asked the waitress what was best for us to order and didn’t help suggest anything. We realized after we ate that we could have done a dinner for 2 and gotten way more food for less money. I literally left hungry. Not coming back for dinner . Dessert was delicious
Our waitress was inexperienced and missed a few things like turning on burner and ingredients.
The food was great and our server Ashley was amazing! Great experience!
We have been there many times and have always been happy. This time we were there as a group of 6. We got two different chocolates for desert . The amount of chocolate was 1/2 of what we usually get. We ended up leaving 1/2 the desert dippers because we ran out of the chocolate. Very disappointed especially since this was a birthday celebration. Finally, there was no recognition that it was a birthday celebration. Why do they bother asking if you’re here for a special occasion such as a birthday.
For a new experience, it was great! Definitely plan on coming back but probably as another special occasion.
Got there on time for the dinner and was promptly seated,orders taken, and served. 100% recommended!
Server was knowledgeable and accommodating
My daughter had an amazing birthday dinner. We love The Melting Pot.
We had a great time, it definitely is something you’ll want to plan a couple hours for. Mia was great and made our dinner even better!
We went in for our anniversary tonight. The food was good along with the bar drinks. There were a few little service mistakes bit nothing bad.
Halloween special at MP. Always good service, food and fun
Two can dine Dinner is always delicious and plenty of food!
Excellent service! Was dining in the first room with a full seating setting. The lighting is a bit hard to work taking pictures but the ambience of the table and furniture is pleasant.
I tried the whiskey business cocktail they had and I loved it! Would definitely come back the next time I’m looking for a lax night out
The experience was great; food, service, etc. - it just seems like more of a rushed experience. Not as intimate as it once was.
Always amazing and romantic place to go eat. We got sat in a different area of the restaurant than we normally get seated so the noise was a good bit higher. Not a big deal though as there were other folks celebrating too. Our waiter was the owners son and he was waiting on a few other tables as well. Service was good, but my wife and I were out of our drinks before the entree and we had to get our waiters attention to get our drinks refreshed and waters refilled. We have been coming here to celebrate our wedding anniversary since 2017. I know the current economy and struggles places are having to recruit and keep people, so I will just say they did the best with the folks they have. Experience was just a little different this time.
The food was excellent, the service was beyond slow. Over three hours!
I loved it
Very unique experience. Great for date night!
Gabrielle was amazing.
It was so beautiful and private and fun .. went for
My birthday with my husband ♥️.. and we had a good time
Great food and an attentive server. Just enough noise but not over the top where you couldn’t have a conversation.
We have been to this location multiple times - never disappointed! Last night was extremely noisy though. We had a hard time hearing others at our own table.
Food was fantastic! Service was terrific!! Thank you!
This was a going away dinner for two children leaving for college tomorrow. There was group of 8 next to us that was so noisy we could not talk to each other
Food was great as always. Service was slow compared to normal and was very loud due to family nearby with crying child and noisy other child. Not usually the case at Melting Pot.
My waitress Ellie was great! It was my first time having fondue so I was a little confused. My favorite part was the chocolate. Overall good first experience.
First off - have been before and this was the worst experience and will not be going back. Went for a birthday outing with our toddler and infant - asked right away for a cup of hot water to warm the bottle in, which took them 35mins to bring us (has only ever taken 5mins tops in many other restaurants). The waiter was never at our table and when he was - he would forget what we asked and would have to ask again. Ordered drinks and cheese (for 3 people) - brought out minimal dippers for 2 people and for reference (the table that sat next to us had ordered cheese for 3 people and they had a mountain of bread dippers and we were given 10 pieces). My drink came out, brought by another waiter, finished my drink and then the empty glass was taken by another waiter, before our waiter came to the table asking if I received my drink. Then asked for a few more dippers and waited so long we just asked to have the chocolate. Then waited for them to flambé the chocolate (husband stepped away for a minute) and we waited so long for the waiter to come back - the utensils to flambé it were taken away by another waiter. Asked for the sweet additions that come with macrons (listed on the menu provided at the restaurant- was why we ordered it) - didn’t even bring it out and was charging us for it, then brought them out WITHOUT the macrons. When asked about it- was told they don’t have those at the restaurant! Then why is it on the menu?! Then we had just had enough and asked for it to-go, was given small cups for everything and lids that didn’t fit and had to ask 4 times for lids that fit. The owner came over and asked why we had a bad experience and when my husband stated (calmly, did not raise his voice) that the pending frustration was we have asked for lids 4 times and still have not received them and … then before he could say anything further the owner WALKED AWAY and didn’t come back!! I also had a birthday coupon to redeem and they didn’t want to honor at first. Just bad!
My husband and I decided to try The Melting Pot in our area and we are glad we did! Our server Chase, was wonderful and helped us out in our for our first visit. We decided to do the Apline fondue dip, Ceasar salads, Land and Sea and Pacific rim for our entrees and had the cookie buttercrunch for our dessert fondue choice. Everything was wonderful in the food choices and the overall experience was just great. Looking forward to another visit here and when we have visitors we will take them here.
Been coming to this location for years, it’s always good. Definitely recommend!
It was great for our first time. I forgot the servers name, but he had black curly hair and was very open and helpful throughout the time.
Very confusing menu and pricing. In the end great for one time to experience, but a $450 bill for 6 people and not enough food served tells me this chain will not last, have no plans to ever return not worth the money nice idea poor execution don’t expect the chain to survive if they don’t make changes.
It was a touch too dark in our little nook. It made it a bit difficult for either of us to read. I noise from the people in the adjoining nook was a bit much making it difficult to hear each other. The food was excellent.
Birthday for 7 yr old son and they loved it
Never been before wanted to try it out. By far an amazing experience my server was so helpful and polite and he was very quick to help with what was needed.
