The Melting Pot - Fredericksburg Ratings and Reviews
We celebrated our anniversary and chose The Melting Pot because they always have had great food, great selections, wonderful atmosphere and terrific service. This time it was no different and we will definitely be back. Hats off to Scott, our server, for outstanding service/
I really enjoyed the fun of eating fondue. The restaurant is really nice to have a private dinner since each booth is seperate from others. It had a nice selection of local wine, since I love Virginia wine. Overall I had a great evening and enjoyed the meal. We also had a very nice and reponsive waitress by the name of Victoria.
Melting Pot Restaurants are my granddaughter's favorites. On her recent visit to Virginia she asked about their location and we found one in Fredericksburg . Although the weather did not cooperate (intense downpours and a tornado alert), the gracious restaurant staff and seasonal fare created a lovely dining experience for us. We are already looking forward to a return on her next visit. Thank you.
Our experience at this melting pot was pleasant for the most part. The server was high energy and nice for the most part. The only problem that I have with dining at melting pot is that I feel like my server has forgotten about us at certain points in the meal. I understand that they want to give us time to enjoy the different courses but the time in between visits are overkill at times. Maybe they could have a timer to let them know that it is time to check on the guests.
The food was fantastic, beyond what I expected. Absolutely loved the energy of the restaurant. Morgan was our server and she was so patient with us. She explained the menu in detail and didn't rush us to make decisions. She was kind, entertaining and kept us hydrated throughout the meal. Will be looking for her next time we go.
Overall I am usually very pleased with all aspects of the melting pot but this time I was not ,took my parents to dinner and made reservations, for 6pm didn't get seated till 6:30 ,they were having a special so I guess that why they were so busy wait time for service was 30minutes or better, So parent's were agitated we didn't leave until almost 9pm ,Wasn't the best experience for first timers
The salad was wilty, the wait was about 30 minutes after our reservation time, the waiter was not very attentive nor did he offer suggestions or information related to choices or specials. I am a frequent visitor to the Charlottesville location, but we are geographically closer to Fredericksburg so my husband and I thought we would try it out. I will continue to go to Charlottesville (even though parking is usually an issue.) Disappointed in light of the cost of what could be a lovely experience.
One of our favorite places to eat! This time we were lucky enough to be there for the Endless Cheese and Chocolate special, which was an awesome deal. We had the quattro formaggio and spinach artichoke cheeses and s'mores and flaming turtle chocolates, all of which were delicious.
Came here with my wife and two children for my wife's birthday. This was our first time. It was a great experience. Service was awesome. Food was good quality and fun. It is a bit pricey; final bill was $280 and that was without any alcoholic bev. Certainly worth it for a special occasion with a small group. The meal was about two and a half hours. All-in-all, we had a fantastic time and will definitely return.
We had a wonderful evening, as we always do when we go to The Melting Pot. The service was wonderful. Victoria was our server and she was attentive at the right times, she knew how to help us select our choices, she was pleasant in every way which made our evening all we could have hoped for. The other people on the service team were also very good. We were not rushed but attended to in a very timely manner. The quality of the food was excellent and the portions were great. The selection of wine included with our meal was great. We cant wait to go back.
This was our first time (Mother's Day) and it was AMAZING! Lived up to and exceeded my expectations. Great atmosphere. Delicious food, A+ for creativity in dining. We were thoroughly schooled on how it all worked by our very knowledgeable and friendly server. It was a lengthy process so don't expect to eat here in a hurry but it is well worth the time. My family was able to take a break from the outside world in this cozy restaurant and just enjoy each other's company. HIGHLY recommend for any special occasion.
Everything was fantastic about this place except the way the menu was explained to us and the reaction of the manager when questioned. The waiter was very nice, but apparently misunderstood what we were asking about in regard to pricing. Upon receiving the check, we questioned the manager who was extremely rude, ill tempered, and quick to cut the conversation short. The food and the ambiance was fantastic, but his foul and less than helpful attitude ruined the experience. I would go back to another Melting Pot, but not that one just because of the manager. Not only was he rude to us, but he was hypercritical of the employees who were doing an exemplary job. Great food, so-so leadership.
We took our Mom to the Melting Pot to celebrate Mothers Day this past weekend and it was perfect! A couple of us had never been but it was a great experience! The food, wine, service, everything was amazing! We ended up spending 3 hours there! Will definitely be back soon!!
Another terrific dining experience! We have made the Fredericksburg restaurant our preferred Melting Pot for several years. They have never - not once - failed to make it a terrific dining experience. Quick service, attentive waiters and waitresses, regular visits from the manager, and of course amazing food. We will continue to return to them again and again.
