If you have never been to a fondue restaurant--you are in for a treat. It is best to go with some friends--so you can get a larger table and get a chance to try 2 different cheeses or chocolates. The concept is really cool. You start off with breads and fruits that you dip in to cheese or chocolate. Then... More

We were first timers so the whole process was intriguing, but at the end of the day..it is more about the process than the food...Go back every 5 years,

Food: Beyond gorgeously amazing Favorite: Scrumptious salmon dipped in yogurt curry sauce; To die for rice crispies dipped in chocolate Waitress: Heather was excellent Downsides: Parking; Confusing menu for a beginner; Website for making reservations doesn't actually show free time slots--you have to just try one (trial and error method) Overall experience: Unforgettably enthralling

We heard a lot of good things about this place but what we heard exceeded our experience. Yes, we did arrive late but that should not be an excuse for lousy service. We had two kids (2 & 7) with us. To make our kids wait as long as they did for food is absurd! Once we were served the... More

We dined at The Melting Pot before attending a performance at The Ryman, it was the first time either of us had been to a Melting Pot and it won't be the last! We had so much fun, it was a unique, different way to enjoy a meal.The food was excellent and we left very happy.

During the CMA Festival we stumbled upon the Melting Pot and ended up eating there 3 out of 5 nights. Two of those nights we ate at the bar and had a fabulous meal and great time, thanks to the bartender Micha. He helped us with our choices and we loved his company. But we wanted to try more than...

This was our first time to the melting pot and enjoyed every minute of it. Our waitress Carissa was wonderful. She explained the process and prepared our food. Give yourself at least two hrs if you get the 4 course meal like we did. I think next time we will skip one of the courses because we were so so... More

While visiting Nashville, for the CMA festival, we had a delightful experience at the Melting Pot. We chose to sit at the bar and have cheese and chocolate fondue. To our delight, our meal was enhanced due to the recommendations of the well informed, competent and personable bartender, Micha.

Love this place. Try to visit once or twice a year. Service is always good and the food is great. You need to go hungry and be prepared to eat a lot of food if you go with the whole dining experience, which includes a cheese with veggies and apples to dip, then a salad, followed by meat selections to...

The Melting Pot was, for me, more about the novelty of all course fondue than excellent food. That said, my food was tasty. The confusing menu has been somewhat simplified, which is a plus. The communal pot used by everyone at the table was fine in my party, we were all family. I would not want to use this venue... More
