We have been going here for over a decade and its one of our favorite places to eat in Nashville. It's just perfect for any occasion whether you want a 4 course meal with seafood or if you just want some chocolate fondue for dessert & a drink while downtown. Its wonderful food with a great atmosphere and a perfect... 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.

You cook your own food!!! But that's the fun part. Fondue type cooking. You order the type of food you want, beef, chicken, fish, and shrimp. Then they bring broth for you to cook your food youself. Fun to do.

This is fun place to eat, good choices for everyone (meat, fish, veggie), lots of cheese and chocolate choices to start and finish too. All the staff were friendly; our server - Rosie - was excellent, great sense of humour. Allow 2-3 hours!

My girlfriend and I had dinner, recently, at the Melting Pot, for the first time. The experience was more than we ever imagined it would be. The waitstaff was very attentive, very courteous and everything was done with great efficiency and timeliness. Justin was an incredibly friendly and knowledgeable server. And more great things could said as well about the... More

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.
