WRITING A LETTER TO THE MAYOR OF KNOXVILLE.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was great but first timeFood was great but first time we had trouble with ordering.

It is a quiet place to enjoy a dinner together!!6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMInteractive ExperienceThis restaurant offers a unique dining experience that allows you to interact with your food.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved it!We went for dessert only and ordered the Bananas Foster Fondue for Two. The fondue was amaaaaazing. The amount of food for two was a little less than I would have expected; I was hoping for a bit more fruit. They made up for it with the perfectly textured cheesecake and our server Jamie was very sweet. We'll definitely be back to get the full course for our next date night!6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMLove.Celebrated our 2 year wedding anniversary. Food was amazing, Service was great!

I took my mom and dad for my mom's birthday, and he provided a wonderful experience for them.
Also, the manager stopped by our table to see how we were doing. We were quite impressed with the level of customer service.

I highly recommend this Restraunt to anyone seeking a romantic night out!5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMYumalicious!Our annual special dinner marking a family occasion is always observed at the Melting Pot. Our 17 and 19 year old kids have enjoyed the experience since we instituted it 5 years ago. Staff is always great and the food always excellent.

It was plentiful.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, Fun with FamilyWe loved the FOOD!!! Try Veg & fish Trio!!
Server had one comment that made me concerned.
We asked to take soup home. She struggle to pour the soup to container.
Sha said "No one asked me before. We do not have any container for it.
It sounds like we did ask too much & very strange things to ask.
Was it too much to ask if we could take soup?
Your restaurant do not have a container to take soup?5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMAbsolutely amazing!This is one of the best places to eat in Knoxville. Good food, great service, and a peaceful atmosphere.

Go NOW!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMan enjoyable experience, foodan enjoyable experience, food excellent, 4 course more than ample food, service excellent. only complaint for knoxville location was that the seating became very uncomfortable for all quests in party after a while. would still go back but with my own cushion.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMI celebrated my one year anniversarI celebrated my one year anniversary with my girlfriend. I went in expecting it to be a positive experience because of all the reviews I have read and friends who have been before. It actually surpassed my expectations. It was very private and romantic. Good food, wonderful service, and a unique experience made our anniversary end perfectly. The only thing I would suggest is to make sure everyone who answers the phones is familiar with the gift packages. I ordered one to be ay our table. A website advertised that it came with a photo frame. I called before ordering the package and I was told the frame was included. Not only was it not included, the restaurant had none . However, the rest of the night more than made up for it.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMpleased as punchWe had a wonderful time at the Melting Pot. It was our first time and we were not disappointed. The food was so delicious. It is a little expensive, but for a special occasion it is worth the cost. Also prepare to be there a while with a 4-course meal. The service was excellent. We stayed for about 2 hours because we were taking our time and savoring our meal. Plan to go when you don't need to rush to be somewhere else. We highly recommend the Melting Pot.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMMy best friend and I wentMy best friend and I went to eat at Melting Pot as part of our Girls Night out which also included a show at the Bijou Theater! We had the best time! Our waitress was fantastic! She was so much fun and we had a blast talking to her!!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMAll was perfect...exceptthe service was the only thing that took away from this being a perfect night out. After the dinner, I took my wife to "50 Shades-The Musical." When our waitress asked if we had plans for the night, we told her. She went off on a tangent about how the 50 Shades books were terrible and had horrific sentence structure. Okay, thanks for that! She tried to smooth it over, but it was too late. Either way, it left an uncomfortable feel for the rest of the night. At one time, another server came to the table and asked if we needed refills on our drinks. My wife asked for more, hot, coffee just as our waitress walked up and made a funny face. The other guy brought the hot coffee and two minutes later the waitress brought another, smuggly.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMFor special occasions, thisFor special occasions, this was a new treat! The four course meal is very filling and you can have a different experience every time! The staff is so knowledgeable - but the training they go through seems to ensure a great experience. We asked a lot of questions.
As a childless couple, we often have issues going to expensive restaurants, only to have our meal interrupted by loud children. This time was no different. The tall booths make for a wonderful, cozy atmosphere.
While the cheese and chocolate courses are my favorite, they have a wonderful mushroom sacchetti that I love!
Make a reservation early to guarantee a table.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMWe took our daughter and herWe took our daughter and her boyfriend there for her Sweet 16th birthday dinner. It was during the week so it was not extremely busy. The waitress was very nice and attentive. We did the 4 course meal, and everything was delicious! Our favorite part was the dipping chocolate with fruit and cake! Yum!4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was easy for them to accommodateIt was easy for them to accommodate my gluten free diet. The had a special menu. The only thing is that menu did not have the prices on it. Also I felt a bit rushed by the staff. Paying that much and trying to enjoy a special night out we did not want to rush through. But over all it was a great night.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMWe received fast, prompt serviceWe received fast, prompt service with hardly any waiting between courses. The Terriyaki marinated Steak was delicious!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGo for the dessert!Group of 4 went for a birthday dinner. Had reservations. Greeted promptly and seated right away. Server was amazing. First time visit for all of us, so server took the time to explain the menu options to us. We had 3 courses (cheese, entree and dessert) and the meal took us a little over 2 hours to enjoy. Dessert was absolutely delicious - the best part of the meal! Meal was on the pricey side ($$$$), so not a place we would go to every week, but great for a special occasion. Entire table enjoyed the experience.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMAll selections superior, typicallyAll selections superior, typically marinated to make "cooking your own" an added pleasure.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMA little confusing to understandA little confusing to understand the menu concept if you are a first time customer,
The food was excellent and seating is great for privacy.
Definitely a neighbor gem !3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMJust Wnderful!!!!!!Had a wonderful time-staff,food, and time was excellent3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWere only inside so don'tWere only inside so don't know about outside dining. It had been years since I had dined there and everything was beyond perfect. Had a great meal, with a great hostess. Everything was wonderful and my guests were also very very pleased.3/25/2013 12:00:00 AMThe melting pot is reallyThe melting pot is really good and very pricey. Make sure if you are sharing a pot with another couple, make sure you tell waitress if you want the cheese or not and the chocolate or not. This trip I wanted chocolate and the other couple with us did and they got charged for it....3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had such a amazing time.We had such a amazing time. Thank you Melting Pot.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMI love the Melting Pot. II love the Melting Pot. I met one of my best friends for supper. The food was great, I have no complaints in regards to the food. the service was great as well. I dine her often with friends. My husband is not a fan, but I am. My only complaint : I brought my youngest child with me, and there is no changing system in the ladies room. If you want a kid friendly place, at least have somewhere to change a diaper.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMI realize it was a SaturdayI realize it was a Saturday night a s they were busy but we felt rushed by the waiter most of the night. You don't expect to be rushed when your drop $130 on dinner for two. Other than that it is a very nice restaurant. Loved the atmosphere. Great spot to take my lady for her birthday.3/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
