Decided to take my dad to the Melting Pot in Nashville for his birthday since we were in town. We were not disappointed one bit with the experience, service, or food.

Great private atmosephere, treated perfectly, fun service. Its interactive since you get to cook your own food/fondue style. There was plenty of guidence and it tasted wonderful. This is top price range for us-once a year deal...well worth it. Very memorable.

Took My wife of 8 years as of yesterday here to surprise her. The service was outstanding. We had everyone from management to the cook come and check with us if everything was ok and if they could do anything for us to make the night better. The food was just outstanding. If you get the chocolate make sure to... More

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... 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

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.

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