    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 9/22/2012
    For it being my first time dining at the melting pot I could not be more satisfied with everything. Me and my date were seated in a wonderful private section, just for two. Our server was wonderful, very patient with us being as I knew nothing about fondue. She even kindly threw in some suggestions that we went ahead and tried. Amazing choice. Would I dine at the chattanooga melting pot again... Absolutely. I loved everything about my experience. Phenominal.

    We had a small group for lunch to celebrate two birthdays and were seated in a private room. Four of the guests had never dined at The Melting Pot (one was unsure of location). Our server was very knowledgeable and attentive. Once the orderng process was explained and food served, the newcomers raved! They understood immediately why I suggested The Melting Pot for our event. Before we left, two guests made plans to host events at the restaurant. The whole experience was top-knotch.

    The second time I have been to a Melting Pot, the first to this location. The experience was excellent. The food was great with a large variety. The server was knowledgeable and very personable and gave excellent service. Although there seemed to be quite a few people the boths were well designed with very little noise from adjacent tables. The ambiance was very nice for a romantic dinner for two.

    The food was amazing. But the service wasn't anything like I had expected it to be. Our waitor took entirely too long at bringing drinks and refills out. It was like he had something better to do. I recommend the melting pot to people just not the Chattanooga one.

    I treated my girlfriend and her granddaughter to the "Enchanted Princess" lunch on Saturday, 8/11. It was absolutely "enchanting" for the granddaughter, age 7. She had never been to The Melting Pot and loved the fondue and dessert. Prince William and Princess Alexis (in royal dress) completed the event! Outstanding treat!

    our waitress was outstanding and that made a world of differenct. But: I understand the problems with equipment and the burner not functioning, with that, we had to be moved from a cozy area for two, to out onto the main floor area where there was no privacy.

    This was the second time going to the Melting Pot. Both times were a real enjoyable time. The food is outstanding and the customer service is top notch. I really recommend the Melting Pot for special occasions and romantic dinners. I called ahead and they had a dozen roses waiting for my wife when we got there.

    I knew that this would be an expensive meal, however I wanted to have the fondue experience, and decided to take the risk. I was not disappointed! The service was top notch, very solicitous but not overly so. As an official cheese-aholic, the 1st course of cheese fondue was absolutely delicious. The salad (California Salad)was overly sweet with the candied walnuts, but still refreshing. The main dish was nicely varied, providing enough for both our tastes. The dessert was to die for, dark chocolate & raspberry (not on the menu but you can ask for it). This is not a place for a foodie, as I've had better tasting food, but the experience & ambiance made up for it. Only complaint: staff saying "Corner!" attempting to prevent head on collisions

    It was a horrible experience, my daughter had several glasses of water spilt on her within minutes of arriving. The waiter was terrible not clearing our dishes in a timely manner, not getting the next step in the meal going as we went along, very unknowlegablle of the process, we allowed ourselves 3 hours to eat before going to a movie, we were late to movie even though we kept telling him, we had a movie to get to. Took almost 20 minutes just to get our checks it is doubtful we will return.

    I would recommend this reataurant because of the menu and the quality of the food. However, as a total dining experience The Melting Pot left a lot to be desired due to the miserable quality of service. The bar was terrible and the servers were inexperienced, poorly trained and were inattentive. Maybe we just went on the wrong night!

    We are glad we tried the Melting Pot. It was fun and our waiter did a good job in describing how everything worked with the fondues. Although other reviews said the dessert course was best, we actually liked the main course the most. Meats were tasty and very tender. Dessert was really good but very sweet and rich. We may go again, but not on a frequent basis because it is rather expensive. If we do, we will order fewer courses to avoid overeating and reduce expense.

    While our group of 4 enjoyed the foodl, our server seemed overwhelmed by the number of tables he had. There was an extreme delay in ordering, And between courses; we were constantly asking for drink refills, and having to remind him to bring things that he forgot like the vegetables, and a plate! We finally, after numerous attempts, flagged down another server for veggies and drinks. Service seemed to improve at that point but it was too little too late. I was a little embarrassed that I had recommended this restaurant after enjoying ladies night with my girlfriend, that this experience was subpar. I doubt I'll ever get my husband to take me back.

    This was the perfect choice for us to walk down memory lane through the ups, downs and "I can't believe that happened to us" as we celebrated our 20 year wedding anniversary at The Melting Pot - Chattanooga. I was able to make the reservation online during closed hours and that was very convenient. I appreciate the special touch of associates congratulating us on our special event and taking a picture then putting in a frame with the Melting Pot Logo on it. Thank you for a new memory we will talk about for the next 20 years.

    I love Melting Pot restaurants and this one lived up to my expectations! I took my sister here to celebrate her birthday, and we had a wonderful experience! We were first taken to a table that was not really where we wanted to sit, and the hosts quickly found us a more suitable table. Our server was very knowledgeable about the menu and was very attentive to us. The food was excellent. It was a perfect situation for two middle-aged sisters to spend a fun evening, enjoying good food and drink.

    My experience at the melting pot was just great my only complaint is not a huge one. To cook food they tell people that others use their cell phone alarms as timers, trying to have a romantic dinner is.hard with alarms going off I might suggest digital timers at the tables to allow others to enjoy without hearing alarms every 2 min.
