We go to TMP several times a year, and as always, tonight was totally spectacular, as was our server Chad, he knew the complete history of how fondue came about, is very knowledgeable about the menu, and even suggests a few of his personal favorites, which are now ours as well. The only complaint I have is none, LOL. Chad... More

Going to the Melting Pot was a great thing to do with a large group. We got a private space, and the decor was exquisite. Everyone loved dipping their food into the fondue pot. My personal favorite was dipping the bananas into milk chocolate. The only real negative was that the price was a little up their.

So Tuesday was ladies night and the service was not that great. Not too busy so I am not sure why. Messed up the checks so I have to wait for a high bill to be taken off. Previously She brought out the wrong food which it was raw was worrisome. It was a comedy of errors. Food was tasting... More

We dined out with friends at the Melting Pot and the night was a blast, it started with the bar tender asking for ID from my friend who is over 70 years old, he loved it. Then the waiter was awesome and informative. the food was fantastic and we spent hours there, had a blast.

I've wanted to go to the Melting Pot for years, so now I've checked that off my bucket list. My husband was apprehensive when I first brought up buying the Groupon to go here. I seized the opportunity to try this place with a discount! It was a fun, unique way to dine. Our server was helpful in guiding us... More

We always have a great experience, here, and this past Sunday afternoon was no exception! There were eight of us, including our two boys and a couple of first-timers at the Melting Pot. As it was Father's Day, there was an "endless meat" entree that we had to participate in, but we all enjoyed it. The cheese fondue was good,... More

We were in Nashville for a bachelorette party and the hostess had reservations at the Melting Pot. Wow, what a treat in their three course meal. We will visit again, just with my husband.

Enjoyed a fun evening as part of a business dinner with 10 colleagues. We enjoyed a 4 course meal. Delicious house salad. No salt or pepper on the table but staff Highly recommended the garlic wine seasoning on most items. Very tasty. Preferred the spinach cheese over the fiesta due to some bitterness of the beer used.

Nashville and Fondue ? Not exactly synonymous but we decided to try the melting pot and we ended up having a really enjoyable and superb meal. Food was excellent however we made a mistake of ordering two separate mains and really one would have been sufficient and then we would have been able to fit in the chocolate fondue desert.... More

Description
The Melting Pot Restaurant is where fun is cooked up fondue style. Whether you're celebrating a birthday, anniversary, long overdue date night or celebrating with a group. We are the premier fondue restaurant, centrally located on Westheimer, providing a casually elegant dining experience and an intimate atmosphere. The relaxing four-course experience begins with a cheese fondue prepared table side and fresh salads while your entrée pot heats up. You'll simmer a variety of meats, seafood and vegetables in the cooking style of your choice. Each morsel is hot, fresh and delicious and all entrées are accompanied by an array of dipping sauces. Chocolate fondue is the finale, served with decadent dippers. Most make reservations for the four-course dining experience but more than a few have stopped by to satisfy that cheese fondue or chocolate craving. The Melting Pot also features a great wine list, specialty cocktails and martinis.
