Food was ok. I made reservations but still had to wait 15 minutes for a table. Once we were seated and served I didn't feel comfortable. I felt like I wasn't being treated the same as other customers. The host seemed to have an attitude. At the end he came and snatched the payment, not saying one word. Waiter was ok, not very happy. We were celebrating my husband's birthday but I wish I had picked a restaurant.

We had a wonderful time at the Melting Pot. We have always loved the service there and have never had an occasion when the manager comes by to check in that was less than excellent. On this occasion I felt bad because the moderate noise level was do to our party with a bunch of 12 year old girls. The restaurant sat us in a fairly private area and on bathroom runs you could not hear the noise from our party more than a table or 2 away. As always, the food is excellent and the special they were running on endless cheese and chocolate was perfect for a party. We got to try many of their flavors without feeling like we had missed out. They have wonderful small secluded tables that are great for a date or anniversary that I love and have used before. Wonderful experience and great service. I would highly recommend them. Just remember that it is an experience, not just a quick in and out between stops.

We love this Melting Pot location and try to make it in every couple of months. The owner is always in attendance and greets all the guests at the table. The staff is always friendly and professional. The seating allows for privacy and a date-night atmosphere.

We only go to Melting Pot for special occasions due to the price of the menu, but it's always a treat to go. The food is unique and ample if you get the 4 course dinner. Be prepared to pay dearly for a meal of 2 people.

This was our 3rd visit. This year was special, I hit the scary 62 and it was the celebration of the adoption of my daughter, as we joked she is only a year old. She calls it our A and B days. The food is always good and the service is great. It a good value for the money. I know we will be going back.

Outstanding as always. Michael was our server and he provided us with exceptional and very enjoyable service. Will definitely be returning. It must also be said that the food was excellent as well. Thank you so much for a great 30th birthday dinner with my sisters!

This is a very good dinning exp, If your looking for a nice quit place to enjoy your meal. We do this once every year or so. It's not the same old hum-drum type of eating out.
Staff was great, friendly yet professional, almost at your bec-an-call if you will.
Highly recommend to everyone.

The food was very good, and the fondue concept was nice. It was slow and relaxing. The noise level was fair. We were able to speak to one-another without raising our voices. We liked that.
Our waitress, Jessica, was very nice, and very knowledgeable, but not very attentive. Getting her attention, and getting her to refill my wife's wine was pretty difficult. She may have been pretty busy with other tables.
It is very nice, but at $175.00 for two people, before tip, it is not the sort of thing that we'll be able to do very often. It is definitely a 'special occasion' sort of place.
But we'll be back.

I did not check Kid-friendly even though they made us at home with a toddler on this trip. Great staff worked with us, put us in a side room with minimal other diners. I had made reservations and warned them we would need a highchair, so they were prepared. Great server too.

While fondue is a leisurely endeavor and you want your server hovering, our server seemed preoccupied and we seemed to wait a long time between already long courses. Dishes stacked up drinks not refilled. That said we had a great time. Menu should distinguish both gluten free and low carb

We go here for every special occasion we can come up with. We have never had bad service here and the food quality is always amazing. The owner, I forget his name is outstanding. He checks on you several times per visit but he is not intrusive or annoying. This is by far my favorite Melting Pot.

We were celebrating Wife Appreciation Day, which we didn't even know existed until we saw the special. The special included a four course meal, roses, chocolate covered strawberries, and a picture. The evening along with the service was fantastic!

It was a great way to end our vacation as we travelled from the OBX back to Pennsylvania! We overnighted in Fredericksburg with family and gave us a great, quality dining option. You forget about the fact that it's in a strip mall once you enter, so the ambiance is nice and cozy.

Took my family for a birthday celebration and received great food and outstanding service. Our server was awesome preparing the food and meeting our needs throughout the dinner. The manager stopped by two times to check on us. Food was fabulous with each course presenting a variety of options for the entire family. Set aside some time to enjoy the four course meal.

Normally everything at the melting pot is great! But this time something was missing, our server just seemed lost, and disconnected. After we ordered our drinks, it took 12 minuets to bring a coke and a water, plus a juice for our son. And then the server seemed to try to rush us through the meal, with bringing the entree a whole 4 minutes after our salads. We will be back but if we get that server again, I will ask for another table.

The Melting Pot is always a great experience. The entire menu is available Gluten Free which is much better than a few "token" Gluten Free options. This is a perfect place for celebrating something special . This is not a quick meal but something to be enjoyed while connecting with your table mates through conversation and fun. The manager of the restaurant gives the place that personal touch by coming to each table and checking on everything. If you haven't tried out the Fredericskburg, VA Melting Pot, you are truly missing something spectacular!!

Our birthday party of 5 was a hit. The food was good but the service we received from Victoria Spaulding was amazing. She was very attentive as well as to our 5 year old grandson. She went above and beyond to ensure that we were pleased. We did not have to wait for anything. You have to try this place. Ask for the best server ever Victoria Spaulding. Enjoy,Kem
