    My girlfriend and I had never been, so I decided to surprise her and take her out on a date and the melting pot did not disappoint. We did the full experience and it was amazing. The food was amazing the service was amazing the atmosphere was perfect. 10 out of 10 would definitely recommend and definitely plan on going back.

    The Melting Pot in Knoxville is a place to take family and make precious memories! This restaurant is so different, so unique, that my daughter ignored her cell phone the entire time we were there! We both enjoyed ourselves so much, that we will definitely be back, and agree it is worth every penny spent for such wonderful memories and a great experience to talk about to our friends!

    The dessert was yummy, as was the Land & Sea entree, but everything else was below average. The appetizers to dip in the cheese were very bland and very cold. The cheese was clumpy and bland. The entree didn’t come with anything aside from a couple onions and stalks of asparagus, and the service was below average with our particular waitress. She also forgot to give us our to-go salad, which we paid for, and overall the portions were small compared to the cost. Won’t be back.

    Every visit to the Melting Pot, regardless the location, is a dining pleasure. This visit was no exception. The food was fresh and delicious, as usual. The service was impeccable. As I celebrated another year with my beautiful bride, I'm thankful the Melting Pot makes such celebrations effortless. You guys are awesome! See you next time.

    Terribly slow and unattended service. Second glass of wine delivered after meal finished. No contact from server during meal. Only to take order and bring food. Will not visit there again. The price was too much for this service and meager amount of food.

    Only one in our party of 5 had been to the Melting Pot before so we asked for suggestions. First we order a cheese fondue and the server brought out the wrong cheese, we told him before he poured it and never offered to get the correct one. He just proceeded on and said he thought we were kidding. What?!? What’s funny about Wisconsin? We inquired about al a cart vs the four course meals and we settled, per his advice, that Al a cart would be more expensive. When we started ordering…he was suggesting we order Al a cart vs the experience despite we had just gone over this in great detail. The entire night was so strange. He didn’t even let us pick the 2nd option how to cook our protein/meats. It was awful service and experience to say the least for a $300 tab. As a side note, the steak lovers meats were the worst steaks we’ve ever had between 5 adults.

    I loved the dim lighting, the food and the timing and consistency of the waitress. She wasn’t overbearing with the “check-ins,” which allowed privacy for an intimate and affectionate evening with my love. She also checked in to prepare the next “meal” almost perfect at times!

    As usual, the food was amazing! We love every visit we have with the Melting Pot in Knoxville. The visit, however, our server was a bit too hurried. He removed items before we'd finished with them and didn't ask before removing them. He also seemed distracted and would forget to bring refills for drinks. Still, all in all, we had a wonderful time -- and even had a chance to show off one of our fav restaurants to new friends.

    Anniversary dinner with my husband. Excellent service. Knowledgeable staff. You have to make several choices and the menu can be confusing. Our server was very patient and helpful but I do recommend reviewing the menu before you go.
