Fun fondue experience

Our waiter was very patient with us describing all of our options to us. I was the only one in the group of 6 who had been to a Melting Pot before. Because we had 6 in or group, we had 2 fondue pots on our table. We were able to come to agreement on cheeses, cooking broths and dessert... read more

I must admit - I love going to the Melting Pot in my home town (which is not Nashville). It has always been a fun and relaxing experience. That is one of the reasons I chose to have a celebratory dinner at the one in Nashville while there with friends and family for my graduation. Another reason was due to... More

We appreciate you "Fondueing" with us in Nashville. Though all of our restaurants are individually owned and operated, we all share a common goal of providing a "Perfect Night Out" for our guests. Thank you for recognizing the effort. Your review has already been shared with the staff and management and will no doubt be further motivation to give 110%. More

While in Nashville, my girlfriend and I stopped in for dinner at the wonderful Melting Pot. We had both been to the restaurant before, but not in this location. Something that struck me right away was how cold it was inside; I think that was partially because it was more under ground than above it. Now let’s move on to... More

So happy that you you an your girlfriend enjoyed yourselves during your recent visit You are correct the restaurant was a little chilly that day. We do keep it cool to offset the heat generated by all the fondue pots - but were caught by surprise by late may cold front that and not so many in use that night.... More

I've been to a couple Melting Pots before and am never dissappointed. This was an excellent romantic dinner for my wife and I. The four courses leave you full, but not over stuffed. The food is good but, considering the cost, the value may be a little low. Service is what really sets the experience apart though. Our waiter, wish... More

I took my husband here for his birthday and we both got the 4 course meal. First a selection of cheese fondue with breads, next a wonderful salad, then on to the meats with broth. We got a mix of surf and turf with dipping sauces and it was a-mazing! Then as if you aren't stuffed enough- on to the... More

Overpriced restaurant. The quality and quantity of the food were not equal to the cost. Quaint setting. Would not return, sorry.

Wait staff a plus. Wine and fondus are all wonderful. Quiet corners available to allow quiet chatting or boisterous laughter :)

My kids love fondue so we went in at 4:30 just for the cheese course. Our server was friendly and knowledgeable. We chose cheddar cheese, but the melting pot would have accommodated us with 2 pots if we wanted to have 2 different types of cheese. Our entire experience was great.

I'd heard about the Melting Pot for years but had never been there. A dear friend was celebrating her 60th birthday and she inexplicably loves the place so that's where we took her. When we walked in the hostess asked, "Cheese and chocolate?" My friend said yes and we were shown to a table. I assumed from that exchange that... More

At the Melting Pot we offer four courses. Cheese fondues prepared table side, fresh salads, entrees prepared table side with fresh vegetables and an array of dipping sauces and chocolate fondues with a variety of decadent dippers. We never want anybody to leave hungry and portion the experience with the intent of that not happening. If a guest needs extra... More
