Loved the Melting Pot. Went with a friend and we both took our teen girls here for their first time. Loved the food And explanations of menu. Service was lacking in timing; took so long from time she said she'd be back to time she actually came back to table. If our husbands had been with us, they definitely would... More

My hubby surprised me on our anniversary & immediately I was awed by the aroma and ambiance as soon as we went inside. We had a quiet booth, not out in the open like other restaurants - a plus by itself! We had a great waitress who was very patient with us as she explained the menu and offer suggestions.... More

It was my grandsons idea to eat here and it was a wonderful experience for all. We started with a spinach/ artichoke cheese fondue appetizer, we all had salads of different kinds we took home. Then moved on to our entrees, lobster, steak, chicken and mushrooms. For dessert it was chocolate fondue. So very tasty and a really neat experience... More

I love fondue as it reminds me of the French Alps so the fact that the Melting Pot is the only proper fondue place in the Hampton Roads area immediately biases this review. I go for the four course option so that I get the European length meal which is great for a date night. Takes about 2 hours so... More

A birthday visit to the Melting Pot on a wet and windy Tuesday. The restaurant was moderately busy, warm and welcoming. A friendly greeting at the door and promptly shown to comfortable booth. Having never "fondued" before our waiter was patient friendly and helpful. We opted for the full 4 course menu. The cheese menu was unctious and creamy. The... More

Very good bonding experience for my Husband & I; if it's your first time I will warn you it's a little confusing, also plan around 2 hours for your meal (sounds like a long time but it flies by!) the waitresses or waiters make the fondue right in front of you & you actually cook your own meal in a...

First off, reservations are highly recommended. My Wife and I had a great time. It was nice, cozy, and comfortable. Our service person was very good...Thank you Josh for that. The food was wonderful, although they had a small problem with one of the burners. It really was nice all in all.

This place blows the doors off any typical restaurant experience. The staff goes through rigorous training to literally become experts on the menu. Every time we go, we reserve a table in the two booth private room away from the main dining hall. It makes for the best atmosphere in my opinion. The fondue entrees from the Japanese Tiger shrimp...

We came here two years ago after our wedding and it was great. We had to come back again and it was just as amazing!! We got the fondue for two and it was perfect portions.

Fondue done right, that is all I can say. The cheese was excellent, the meats and shrimp of the main course were good quality, though you are left to figure out your own flavor, this is the weak point in my opinion, and the desert (chocolate) fondue was also excellent. My family all agree, it was actually too much food,... More
