About The Melting Pot - Nashville

The Melting Pot Restaurant in Nashville is where fun is cooked up fondue style.

Our Historic Second Avenue cellar in downtown Nashville is close to all downtown hotels, Broadway Honky Tonks, Nissan Stadium, Bridgestone Arena, Acsend Amphitheater, TPAC, Schermerhorn, Music City Center, The Country Music Hall of Fame.

The experience is great in a group and romantic for couples. The intimate cellar location provides a casually elegant, intimate atmosphere. The relaxing four-course experience begins with a cheese fondue prepared table side. A fresh salad follows while your entrée pot heats up. You’ll simmer a variety of tantalizing meats, seafood and vegetables. Each morsel is hot, fresh and delicious and all entrées are accompanied by an array of dipping sauces to add to the flavorful fun. Chocolate fondue is the finale.

WORST server ever. Racheal (our server) displayed zero passion or appreciation for our patronage. Her tonality was terribly poor and un enthusiastic. She rushed words, meal courses and displayed the worst attitude when asked questions or to repeat sentences. If management elects to on board reckless servers to abuse it's clientele... it's a pleasure for me to warn all of my 883 FB friends to steer clear Melting Pot.

The food was excellent. Our only complaint was that it took quite a while after we were done and we had to find the waiter and ask for our bill. We were on a timeline with TPAC tickets. Otherwise the service was excellent. The waiter was knowledgeable and friendly.

Have been several times. The food was not great this time. The beef was grisly and fatty. The top of my booth was filthy. Server was good but was new. I won’t be back for a few years. I was disappointed in the quality of the overall experience.

 (New York Area)·Dined on October 29, 2017

We reserved a table, showed up but decided not to stay. This type of dining was not something we wanted. Everything had to be cooked by patron on table. Nice idea, and probably a nice dining experience but for $45-50 pp, I'd rather order and be served the food already cooked.

What I was expecially NOT happy about was that we were using an open table dining reward if we had stayed. As I discovered later-the reward STAYS with the restaurant even though we did not dine there. They also did not CANCEL my reservation, which I did immediately upon leaving the restaurant. Evidently, it didn't matter. The 100 pts went to my account, but the reward was NOT returned to my account. Why not just skip the 100 pts and RETURN the reward to account so it can be used again!

Thought the shredded cheese for the fondu was a little tacky. Shaving it off the block would have been a quality touch. Especially at the prices you charge.
Service was nice.
Didn't like paying all the money to cook my own meat.

Overall I wouldn't recommend it. This was our anniversary and we both were disappointed.

This was our first time dining here and heard a lot of hype about it.
We went for our anniversary and we spent about $130. I knew it was pricey and that was ok, but I just wasn’t blown away with the food or the experience. The table was tiny and not a lot of room to sit our plates.
The waiter we had was phenomenal though.

Smelliest restaurant ever... I mean... It was horrifying and I completely lost my appetite. And the carpet did no one any favors. I boiled my food in Lipton soup. Our waiter opened a screw top wine bottle with a corkscrew which I didn't even think was humanly possible... So maybe I should be impressed.... Literally the worst meal of my whole life. Don't. Go.

We really enjoyed our dining experience at The Melting Pot. The food was amazing as always and our waiter (I believe his name began with an R but can’t think of it at this time) was very attentive and knowledgeable. We have dined at this restaurant a few times and weren’t aware we could substitute meats for others we preferred when getting the Nashville Big Night Out. Our reservation was for 5:00 but they allowed us to be seated early because we arrived about 15 minutes early. Overall we were pleased with the meal and service we received and will be frequenting again. Thank you!!

Everything about the food and drinks was great, as always. However, our waitress was awful. There wasn’t a moment she didn’t seem to not know what she was doing. From not knowing what basic cocktails were, to not knowing who’s entree was who’s when handing out our dishes, she just didn’t seem professional at all.
