The Melting Pot - Richmond Ratings and Reviews
The food was good, as is usual. The service was not, which unfortunately seems to be becoming the standard. The last two times we have eaten at the Melting Pot the service has been sub par. On this visit, we had to ask several times for a booster seat, we finally had to hunt down a manager to take our dessert order, and my husband paid the bill at the front hostess stand because we couldn't find our server. For the price of a meal, service should be outstanding and it's just not even close.
My niece selected this as one of her choices to go to eat for her birthday. The food was good and the server, Devon, was great. The lighting was a bit too dark for me to comfortable read the menu, so I had to use my phone be light. We were both impressed that we could order a side of extra shrimp to go with the fondue. It was a very enjoyable night out.
My husband and I have frequented The Melting Pot- Richmond. Unfortunately, this was one of our least favorite visits. Our waitress seemed more concerned with serving everyone else and we had several different team members serve us during our visit. We felt that we had to wait unusually long times between courses.
Our waiter Eli was very efficiant, attentive friendly, funny and sweet. He was very good about suggesting items and was informative about the menu. Our drinks were promptly filled every time someone walked by and we were also acknowledged by management. This was a special night I planned for my sister from out of state. I'm so glad it did not disappoint, she loved it and wishes there was a Melting Pot in her state too!
Went here for the first time for my anniversary. Spent 3 hours here amd it did not feel like it. It was a great experience and something I look forward to doing again. Our waiter was very courteous and friendly and went out of his way to make us feel at home. Ask for Gavin.
We went there to celebrate my daughter's 10th birthday. Our server was fantastic! He was very tolerant of serving two children (4 and 10) and make sure we had everything we needed. He made great suggestions. They staff was friendly and helpful. The food was amazing!
You can never go wrong with the Melting Pot! Definitely a treat but for us it's like going to the spa - except with food. Great each step of the way: service, cheese fondue, main course and of course the chocolate fondue. Enjoy some wine and relax while you indulge in a fantastic meal. I suggest getting a wine flight and the Mojo for the main course.
Excellent service by Shane and the staff at Melting Pot Richmond. We were greeted with "Happy Anniversary" several times and it was great that they went out of their way to ensure my wife and I had an excellent evening celebrating our 16th Wedding Anniversary. I will definitely continue to recommend Melting Pot Richmond to friends and family! Excellent Experience!!! Thank you
The staff was very helpful and knowledgeable. We had a very good waiter. He had the answers to all the questions we had.
If I had to say anything negative..... it would be that we felt slightly rushed a little at the end. We came early, and it was getting quite busy by the time we left.
The last time we went it was bad but my partner wanted to go for her birthday. The bathroom had one open stall with no toilet paper. The wall had blue tape over the outlet. The food was not made at the table but was brought out from the kitchen, cold. The mojito was Sprite with leaves in it. Terrible!
Love this restaurant. It is one of our favorites & we even have a special waiter. Our last one moved on after graduation but it didn't take us long to find the one we love now. We are treated like special people every time & we visit about every 2 months. Would highly recommend.
My wife and I have been there many times over the years, usually a special event. The reason we keep coming back is the obvious, we totally enjoy the experience. We have been to 2 other Melting Pot locations and they were very good, but we prefer this location over them all.
