Tryed it once.

This was my 1st experience at this type of restaurant. I did like the meal and the experience but for the price I would rather do something else.

On our second last night in Nashville we wanted to head somewhere a little more fancy and quiet to relax for a meal, this place was awesome and delivered! Staff was so friendly, our waiter Steven was terrific and knowledgeable, all aspects of the meals were amazing. We left feeling full and satisfied which is what matters. So happy we... More

Bad quality cheese. Since I'm Fench, I don't know what I expected going in this chain, but the cheese is really not good. This makes this whole experience be really expensive for what you get in your plates. Count $40 per person for a complete meal and for this price you can get so much better in Nashville. The only...

This was my first time to a Melting Pot. It was better than I could have imagined. Every bite was delicious. Everyone at my table ordered the 4 course meal. With laughter and talking, it took us 3 hours to get through all 4 courses. It's a little pricey, my total $65 with the 4 courses, one specialty drink, and... More

The food was quite excellent! The dining experience took 2.5 to 3 hours though so it was really long if you were planning on doing something else anytime soon. We totally enjoyed all of the food, the cheese, cooking the food on the table and the wine. One must be prepared to pay though for this experience. You even have... More

My husband took me to the melting pot for our anniversary. Once you get downstairs and inside the restaurant, you and your table are like your own little world. Our server, karen, was brand new and we couldn't even tell. She explained everything carefully and gave us tons of choices and answered our questions. For the anniversary, there were roses... More

Our group of 16 was well received at this restaurant and efficiently served (as we had the night concert at CMA Music Festival) to attend...delicious! I would say probably even more enjoyable when one does not have an agenda to pursue.. Great for a long slow meal sipping a cocktail or glass of wine.

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.
