Voted one of the best restaurants in Charlottesville by OpenTable, The Melting Pot is located on historic 5th and Water Streets in the Downtown Mall area. We're the perfect stop after a day of shopping along beautiful tree-lined streets or after seeing a show at the nearby Paramount Theater, Pavilion, or John Paul Jones Arena. Your meal starts with a flavorful cheese fondue prepared tableside and served with seasonal fruits and vegetables as well as artisan breads. If you choose to indulge in the full 4-Course Experience, a fresh salad with signature dressings follows while your entree pot heats up. Then, you'll simmer a variety of tantalizing meats, seafood, and vegetables, each of which is hot, fresh, delicious, and accompanied by an array of dipping sauces. Chocolate fondue is the finale, and is served with an array of decadent dippers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We were celebrating our 42nd anniversary and we were seated at a very private table which happens to be #42. Awaiting us was a balloon attached to an attractive photo frame accompanied by a card signed by the staff. Our server, Austin, was wonderfully attentive the entire evening. The manager, Cottie, paid us a pleasant visit and contributed to what became a memorable visit. All the food and beverage was wonderful. The salad we enjoyed was the house salad and it was great. That was preceded by the cheddar fondue and followed by our entrees. You cannot go wrong with any of the choices. My favorite course is the dessert. We chose the dark chocolate, which is not at all bitter, just divine. The sauces and presentation were all outstanding.
