The experience was absolutely perfect. The waiter, food, and environment. It was amazing. You absolutely have to get the flaming turtle as the final course. It's beyond words.

The atmosphere was nice. The food was good but not worth the $80.00 bill. They suckered in another tourist.

My husband took me here for my birthday and it was amazing! The hostess was very nice and acknowledged that it was my birthday first thing, made me feel special. :) Lissa was our server and she was wonderful! Super nice and helpful and funny. It was our first time at the Melting Pot, and she patiently listened to and answered all of our questions and made great recommendations! She also acknowledged it was my birthday several times, which makes me think they would make any occasion there a special one! Amazing overall experience. My hubby did a wonderful job and thanks to the Melting Pot staff for making our night so great! :)

We made reservations here for dinner on the night of our wedding. I made mention of the occasion merely to ensure that my bride had enough room to accommodate her dress in the booth. We were taken aback by the staff immediately, who took every pain to make our night incredible. They showered us with gifts and made us feel like absolute royalty. Far and away the best dining experience I've ever had. These folks are class-act and these words cannot do justice to the level of service and professionalism they demonstrated in this very memorable evening. I'd give them 10 stars if I could. Fantastic.

We celebrated my best friend's bridal bash at The Melting Pot. The food was outstanding! We did the Bride's Toast Package and it was just perfect for our group! Our server, Stephen, was phenomenal--fun, helpful, accommodating, and engaged. One incident not even worth mentioning at this point because the manager made sure he took care of our Bride-to-be!

My first experience was interesting. The wife had been several times and kept recommending we go sometime, so we finally made reservations and got down there. We went in for the long haul, expecting to be there 2 hours or more, as we were not in a hurry and just wanted to enjoy the experience. We were seated quickly and immediately served by a gentleman who spoke so softly and breathy, neither of us could hear him, and he frequently had to repeat himself. After making some recommendations, he departed and we perused the wine list. He came back and recommended a wine that sounded good to us, so ordered a bottle. He came back a while later and expressed that they had run out, and wouldn't be able to serve us that wine. We tried something else, and went with that, but it wasn't what we really wanted. Our cheese fondue was too watery and didn't have good flavor at all. Not to mention that every time our waiter came by, he seemed to want to rush us to the next part of the meal. We hadn't even gotten through 1/2 of our cheese and he'd come by for a 3rd time asking us about our entrees/meats. We finally gave in, but weren't prepared to start making them yet, as we were still enjoying our wine and cheese portion. After just a few minutes, a rather haughty other waitress came by and MOVED OUR CHEESE off the burner! It wasn't good to begin with, but now it started to cool & harden, and we still had quite a bit left to enjoy! We didn't want the meat yet, and were prepared to wait, but were rushed to our second course. When we finally finished what we could of the cheese portion and moved on to the meats, everything was fine. The meat was good, as was the sauce, and sides. However, we were again being RUSHED the entire time we were enjoying our entrees to move on to the dessert course. We finally put our foot down after about the 4th time of being accosted to order desserts and sat the menu aside and told the waiter we would just grab him when we were prepared to order further. We think he got the hint at that point, and left us alone to enjoy our food at our own pace. We did finally order our dessert and left satisfied with all but the service.

The only fondue restaurant in Nashville. There is just nothing else out there, in Nashville, like this restaurant. I get the 4 course experience package, the basic, with no premium add on's like the lobster tail, you won't need it. To start, the cheddar cheese fondue, there are four cheese fondue choices but I like this one the best. Next the mushroom is loaded with fresh sliced mushrooms. Check with them, they may or may not carry this salad anymore. Next, I like cooking in the hot canola oil although others may like the hot broth. Be extremely careful when cooking here, I would not take the kids!!!. Finally we arrive at dessert. Again I am old fashioned with my choices, I go for pure chocolate.
