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

Excellent food and superb service. Come hungry and leave completely full! The four course meal is enough to fill you to the brim, so be sure you're hungry when you arrive. Bring a friend or two and make a fun time of it.

First time at a restaurant specializing in fondue. Ot was an interesting experience which I would try again. As for the first course, the cheese fondue, I would like to see more vegetable than bread. I thought the main course was done very well.

Sean was one of the best servers I've ever had! Very knowledgeable about the menu and his recommendations on certain items were so wonderful! He definitely made our date night wonderful, looking forward to more dinners at The Melting Pot 🙂

My husband and I enjoy this place very much! A bit pricy but very worth it. It's a place where you can actually sit down and talk with your companions and enjoy a meal. My husband and I usually go here for special occasions (anniversary, birthdays, etc.) I would definitely recommend. Plus the food is amazing!

Reservation booked through Open Table and we were taken to our table as soon as we walked in. Service was great with the exception of a more comprehensive wine list needed. Items and menu were explained very well and our server was prompt and at the same time allowed us to have enough conversation time without being interrupted. Desert Menu was fantastic.

They took great care of us. The four-course was a great fit for our special occasion. The only reason I marked the noise level is because, while it was a nice secluded corner, there was some sort of droning buzz coming from nearby which was slightly annoying. Everything else was top-notch.

The Melting Pot staff went out of their way to ensure we had everything we needed. They were extremely polite and very responsive to our needs. It being my wife's surprise Birthday Party, she was extremely pleased with the outcome.

This is our favorite spot for celebrating or anniversary. Great for a date night for just the two of us or with a few friends. Variety of choices to appease all tastes. This is one place you will never leave hungry. Staff is friendly and courteous and service is outstanding. Looking forward to our next visit.

I did not realize The Melting Pot was a franchise; if I had that would have been a red flag for me that the quality of the meal wasn't going to be what I was looking for. This restaurant was very highly rated on Open Table and so I thought since we were passing through the area that it would be fun to try given we love fondue. The service from the staff was great, even the owner stopped by our table to ask us how it was going, but I have to say that they charge a lot of money for just ok food. Firstly and importantly, I really don't like the way the menu is broken down in terms of only being able to order cheese fondue as an appetizer and then a broth or oil based fondue as the entrée which has to be shared by the entire table. We ordered a cheese fondue starter that came with bread, granny smith apples and some veggies. The bread was good but the veggies were not of great quality. This is very important for fondue that the veggies be fresh and crisp. The cheese fondue was too garlicky and was a bit fake cheese tasting to me. We ordered a traditional oil fondue for our entrée that came with sirloin, marinated chicken and shrimp. I would say the quality of the meats was very good, but the sauces were just ok in my opinion. In any event, I just was expecting so much better given the rave reviews this place gets and I felt the food overall was just ok and on the very expensive side for food that really shouldn't be expensive.

Another wonderful evening at the Fredericksburg favorite. A quiet Thursday evening with my wife and an always enjoyable meal. Top notch service and attention to detail. Everything from beginning to end was perfect. Highly recommend for a quiet date night, romantic evening or just a great dinner.

Everything was great. We go to the melting pot once or twice a year. The food is always great. This time though The New York cheese chocolate was not great and the Chicago deep dish cheese could not go the distance ( we ran out of cheese before dippers). The Louisiana gumbo was great though.

Tori (our server/waitress) was excellent. She was VERY knowledgeable about all options. (We went for the Cheese and Chocolate Special.) She also had wonderful attitude along with a displaying a "quirky" disposition (which fitted was to a tee) as we were talking to her.
We have never had a bad experience at this restaurant.
great service, wonderful food
We were a party of 10 including 2 small children. I made reservations for a Sat. lunch following a graduation. Reservations were a snap, and later when I added 4 more people they had no problem accomodating us. We had a private dining area set off from the rest of t he restaurant which was perfect. Our server, Tori, could not have been better in her suggestions, interactions with us, and checking back to see if we needed anything else. The manager also stopped by several times to see how things were going. We ordered 3 cheese fondues, and one in the party ordered steak. We ended with 2 chocolate fondues that were wonderful. No one went away hungery and sitting around a big table made for fun conversation. I would definitely come here again!
