    Forbes was a wonderful server. We always enjoy our Melting Pot experience. We have watched over the last year to two at how Aaron has turned the dining experience around and appreciates his customer base.

    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.

    We had two large tables and one waitress for each. One table completely finished our meal and paid prior to the second table getting their chocolate course. When we asked for extra vegetables that took a while because the focus throughout the meal seemed to be more on clearing the table. When our chocolate was delivered prior to us taking the first bite, our waitress one by one verified our orders to prepare the bill..,.

    The server was very young, would ask how we were doing every other bite, we couldn’t enjoy our meal she was to much! Then we told our little onw she had to wait for chocolate until after the meal ans she undermined us and brought her marshmallows while we had meat. I was livid. After this 3 year old that didn’t eat a bit of anything (except the marshmallows we did ask for) was charged $29.95 for her chocolate helping. SHE DIDNT EAT! we had to leave to talk so we weren’t Interupted every other bite. Special occasion and we couldn’t wait to get out of their so she would leave us alone. $300! So sad it was my 3 girls first time at fondue and memorable, not at all. I’m so disappointed.

    We enjoyed the 4 course meal very much. The appetizers with cheese all tasted great, and paired perfectly. The meats were amazing too. My favorite meats were the filet and chicken. Sauces I loved were curry, teriyaki, and green goddess. All the desserts were good. Service was top notch too.

    Our waiter was obnoxious and rude. Too pushy and ruined the graduation celebration we had we our son. Drink and food orders were inconsistent. Lastly, he over rushed us through the entire meal. Very disappointed. We love Melting Pot but doubt we’ll go back to this location.
