The Melting Pot - Fredericksburg Ratings and Reviews
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.
My husband and I have been here multiple times for special occasions and date nights. The food and service are always great and the manager knows us since we go there so often. He checks to make sure everyone is satisfied with their melting pot experience. Bring an appetite for the four course meal (cheese fondue, salad, entree, dessert). I love the dessert chocolate with peanut butter!! Definitely will be returning.
Hadn't been to MP in a while, so was looking forward to the experience. The food, as usual, was great, but I couldn't help but notice that the portion sizes had gotten noticeably smaller -
but the prices had gone up!
Dippers are "unlimited" but it felt like they were skimping on those as well. I'm not sure if this is specific to this location (my first time at Fredericksburg location).
Our server was very nice, but took almost 10 minutes from when we sat down, to be visited by her.
Overall, we had a great time. But definitely some areas for improvement.
We had a wonderful evening celebrating Saint Patrick's Day! The food was wonderful and satisfying. The ambience was quiet, yet active. And Tori was the best wait staff we have experienced in a long time. We will certainly be back for our next special occasion.
Great food, seated immediately, and the manager and our waitress were so nice! She read my mind on what drinks I wanted, the manager brought me my own sauces and I didn't even ask...it was just a lot of fun and a pleasant experience. The best customer service I have had in a long time, too. Good job, Melting Pot!
Service was excellent and everything came in a timely manner. Our waiter, Michael, was very personable and made sure everything was perfect. I took my boyfriend here for the first time ans he absolutely loved it. He's normally a more comfort food eater, but he loved everything we got.
My wife and I enjoy going to the Melting Pot for special occasions. Since she is gluten free and has to be as an allergy this is one of the few restaurants in the area that she can actually eat at and not get sick. it is nice to come back and see the same management. They take pride in the service they provide and it shows.
We took my mother and our eldest son, both visiting for the first time, and they absolutely loved it. The endless cheese and chocolate special was amazing (if a bit much, we realized later) and the service was spectacular. Our waiter was very friendly and even the manager came to apologize for a 'slow' night due to low wait staff. We did not notice in the least and were extremely pleased with everything.
We will definitely be going back in the future.
