Went here with my fiancé and daughter for their all you can eat cheese and chocolate for $22. It sure didn’t disappoint. We were able to put away a few cheese pots before doing 4 chocolate pots. I always like coming here (especially for dessert) but the prices have been creeping up and the portions a tad smaller.

However the management here is amazing. We always see the owner when we come and he is so friendly; remembers us and always makes sure to talk to us. He alone can make the trip worth while because you know how much he loved his business. Just how amazing this guy is he has personally taken care of us on numerous occasions because his wait staff was backed up and made had us waiting. After a few minutes he would come himself; take our order and get our station ready. A+ for management

We had 8 people for a 50th anniversary lunch for my parent in-laws. It was their first visit and had a great time. The brother and sister in-laws had been before and enjoyed as well.

We’ve been to the Reston location a couple times and always enjoy the visits. Lots of food and a different atmosphere than the normal restaurant.

Our server was great, knowledgeable, helpful, and attentive. The food was great as well. The cheese fondue we start with is always my favorite. The desert was the favorite of some of our party.

The prices are not cheap, but it’s a great time and the kids always want to return....of course so do we.

The Fredericksburg location was just as good as the Reston location. We definitely recommend a visit. It really makes a good spot for a special occasion.

There is a full bar and they do specialty coffees as well. My cappuccino was great.

Make sure to make reservations.

Went here for New Year's Eve with 2 kids, although quite early-5 PM. Price fixed special menu which was expensive $70 for adults, $25 for kids. We all enjoyed our meal and the service was fabulous and generous with offering extra food often and very accommodating to substitutions. The kids said this was their new favorite restaurant, next to Red Robin and Salsaritas. Vast difference between the 3. They loved cooking their own food which kept them busy and the conversation lively.
I would definitely come back again and recommend it to all.

Our family tradition is to visit the Melting Pot every birthday (6 times a year) and our anniversary. We love this restaurant for our special occasions because of the atmosphere and the food.
The low lighting, and cozy booths provide a sense of privacy and comfort. There are options to elect flowers waiting for the birthday person and a photo option. We our family to feel special and document the occasion so we always add this.

The wait staff is ALWAYS amazing. The set up your cheese selections bring all the sides for dipping and check on you frequently. They attend to your main fondue and make sure that you have the meat and vegetables that you ordered. The wait staff engages in conversation and constantly make sure drinks are offered and that you are happy with your service. The manager also makes a visit to your table (every time we have visited) to ensure that you have had a good experience.
The Fredericksburg location is by far the best. We have visited 3 other sites but always return.
