The Melting Pot was a great experience. The food was very good and the atmosphere was incredible. We had a great waitress and a great night. I would recommend the Melting Pot to anyone looking for somewhere to spend a romantic dinner. *** The Wine & Garlic seasoning is incredible!! Put it on everything!!!!***

Two of us were first time visitors. Our waiter, Steven, explained everything to us, and was very helpful and attentive. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience and would recommend it to others. They have valet parking available. The place was just remodeled and it is beautiful.

Great atmosphere, neat feel, and great desert. You cook everything yourself in the pot at your table and pay pretty high for it. Over all its a experience not just a meal. We go to melting pot at least once a year if possible when in a city with one. Leave plenty of time to eat as it takes a... More

We were in Nashville for 1 day and never had fondue, score! This basement restaurant was super! The hostess fit us in without reservations and our server, Jay, was fantastic. Food was tasty, overflowing and encouraged a real date night atmosphere. Leave your cell phones at home, lots to talk about while dining. Enjoy!

With Groupons in hand, we (2 couples) headed out for our anniversaries. Somewhere in the reservation process online information regarding table setup needs to be shared. We arrived to find that there would be one fondue pot for the 4 of us, but noticed tables with 2 pot burners. It took a bit of discussion to have our reserved table... More

A family member has been wanting to go and I was dragging my feet. I felt it was over-priced for the food received. However, I must say it was a very good (and fun) meal. I look forward to another visit.
