The Melting Pot - Virginia Beach Ratings and Reviews
I have been to many melting pots before and I was not impressed by this one. Our server was great and friendly. The cheese (spinach artichoke) was great, but the portions of bread were cut in half and replaced with what seems like great value chips. The salad (Caesar) had a whopping 5 candy coated pine nuts, which is why I get that salad, and the lettuce was limp and brown on the ends. The entree was good, but got a side of filet mignon and for $8 I got three pieces of steak that were about 1x1 inches. I paid $50 for the same amount and quality of food I could get for $20-30 elsewhere.
My husband and I went here for date night. Overall, it was a great night. It is a bit expensive, so we can't go very often. The only negative thing about the experience is that I ordered a vegetarian meal and my husband ordered meat. We didn't know our food would be cooked in the same pot. So, it ended up being pointless ordering a vegetarian meal. I don't mind it as much as other strict vegetarians might, though.
My experience at The Melting Pot was phenomenal. The service was outstanding. My server was extremely knowledgeable, thorough and helpful (especially while explaining the process of meal courses to a group of first timers). I plan to return again when I am in the area. If you have never been to The Melting Pot it is a great place to spend time with someone because your courses do take roughly 2 hours to complete but the presentation was fabulous, as well as the atmosphere.
The service was really slow. We sat around 9pm and didn’t leave until midnight due to everything coming really slow. Our waiter didn’t check on us too often to see if we were ready to move on to the next selection. I would recommend it to flow a little faster.
Food was good, the cheese appetizer we had the bourbon cheese. A bit strong, maybe less bourbon mixture. Server was attentive at first, but rarely seen as the meal progressed. She said she’d been there a year, couldn’t tell. Because of her mistake the main course had trouble when the burner turned off in the middle we noticed toward the end when the food was taking longer to cook. The waitress forgot items we requested throughout, but overall we will go again. This just happened to be a blip for us.
We celebrated our one year anniversary on Saturday and could not have been more thrilled with our experience. Samantha was our server and she was absolutely amazing. She explained everything to us and even brought a plate that said “happy anniversary” on it. We left with a full stomach and a huge smile on our faces. We will be back!
The Melting Pot has a great ambiance. The food is mediocre, but the table side service makes up for it. Our cocktail drinks were not worth it at all as they were 99% soda. When we asked whether there was alcohol in the drink, our waiter said we could buy another shot if that was the case.
Brought my girlfriend here for her birthday dinner and it was phenomenal. We were greeted with smiles as soon as we got to the door. Our server was friendly and very patient with our group. Overall I we really enjoyed our time at the Melting Pot and plan on coming back again very soon.
Went earlier to celebrate our 17th Wedding Anniversary. Very disappointed � Started the moment we entered the establishment, nobody out front, people waiting to be seated. Someone did come out and when it was our turn this guy (not sure if manager or supervisor) asked our last name, we told him then few minutes later he looked at us and asked for our last name AGAIN. We were right in front of him the whole time! When we got seated, server seemed bored out his mind to be there. Super slow service. Menu is confusing and didn’t help that server didn’t bother making it easy for us. Overall will never be back and definitely will not recommend.
I loved this restaurant for our 40th anniversary dinner. It was romantic and cozy. The dinner was excellent and fun! We loved cooking our own food. The dinner was delicious and fresh. The waiter was extremely attentive and the whole experience was wonderful. Would totally recommend to anyone.
Great experience. Only one thing I wold change. My wife and I were seated directly behind the kitchen and there was a continual grinding noise we could hear through the walls. We were told by our amazing waitress the sound was from heating water in the kitchen. Our waitress was apologetic and offered to move us after our desert, which we declined. We were cozy and already half way through our meal. Overall great time but there shouldn’t have been noise of that magnitude distracting from the experience and the overall ambiance.
Food was great! We were celebrating my husband's birthday, and they brought out a cute plate at the end that said happy birthday in chocolate. We had a 4 course meal, fondue was very fun and different. I gave them 4 stars because I they had a flight of wine that was supposed to go with each course. The server forgot the glass that went with the salad, and when I mentioned it, he denied one went with the salad (I'm passive so I assumed I was wrong)...next thing you know I'm having a ton of wine at the end to make up for the fact that he did indeed forget a glass. Wasn't able to enjoy the flight like it was ment (a pairing with appetizer, salad, main course then desert), but other than that the experience was excellent.
I have been going to the melting pot for 11 years, never have I walked out hungry, until October 13th. The portions are now so small and not worth the price that is charged. The quality of the food was also questionable and did not have good flavor. The whole experience was poor and I’m highly disappointed.
The food was good, but I think it is overpriced. The waitress added wine to the cheese and we did not like the strong taste of wine. The chocolate was outstanding, but it seemed there wasn't enough to share for our table. I do not have any plans on going back due to the price. The service was outstanding!
It was our first time coming to Melting Pot and it was my boyfriend's birthday. Our waiter's name was Josh, and he was wonderful. Friendly, struck up conversation without being overbearing, and when there was a miscommunication about what I ordered, he went ahead and gave me what I thought I was missing, even though it was my mistake. The food was wonderful, atmosphere was romantic and quiet. Thank you for a great date :)
