The Melting Pot - Knoxville Ratings and Reviews
My mom has never been to a Melting Pot, so my sister and I decided to take her for a Ladies' Night. Not only was the food, ambience, and service exceptional, she had a lot of fun cooking her own food and tasting a variety of options. We had a great night out, and the Melting Pot made it that much more special.
I've heard about the melting pot for years but just recently went for the first time, I had always thought why would I spend the money for me to cook my own food but all I can say is WOW! What a great experience! Great atmosphere! Great service! Definitely worth the money!
Very hands on dining experience with lots of action at the table. Concept requires table help to spend quite a bit of time at each table. Works well when restaurant not very busy but when pace picks up it stretches dining experience out far too long. Food very tasty but pot in middle of table generates quite a bit of heat and smoke.
Aaron was by far the best server we have ever had. He was very attentive, helpful, and upbeat. We had an amazing dining experience. The food was delicious and the drinks were divine. Anyone thinking about dining here should definitely ask for Aaron. He will make any occasion special.
Love the place although this time it seemed especially dark. However the server got us a candle so all was good. I didn't care for the Caesar salad. They added sweet crunchy stuff on top and I'm not talking about the croutons, which made it not an authentic Caesar salad. The cheese fondue was amazing as was the chocolate. I could eat the cheese and chocolate fondue all night long. Our server,Hannah, was very personable and attentive. We love this place!
My husband and I went for our anniversary dinner, the Groupon made the dinner affordable, we added the chocolate fondue to our meal and it was an amazing way to end the dinner. Everything was delicious and our server was awesome! Such a memorable experience.
It had been a while since I was there & my fiancé had never been to a fondue restaurant. It wasn't a normal date night, we were also celebrating finding out that the baby she is carrying is a girl! Our server Danielle was so friendly and helpful, very genuine and personable, and even went out of her way to light a pink candle when she brought our fruits and goodies for our chocolate. We will definitely be back, and the next time we'll bring the kids. I will also be requesting to sit in Danielle's section because she helped make the evening special.
Our server was very helpful in showing us the basics of fondue, given that it was our first time at the Melting Pot. She guided us through the menu and was, throughout the night, very helpful. Furthermore, all of the food was absolutely delicious. Combined with the atmosphere, our experience at the Melting Pot proved to be a very fulfulling night.
I've asked my husband to dine here for several years and he had been hesitant. We received a gift card from our kids and I chose to 'spend' it for my 50th bday. His hesitation at not getting enough to eat doing fondue was not realized because this place was GREAT and we both left completely stuffed!! We had never been to a fondue place and I don't know what we really expected but you guys knocked it out of the park! We had a drink while we waited for our table and the service-and drinks were excellent! We chose the 4 course experience for 2. Our server (I don't remember his name sadly, but he's a new dad!) was so helpful by giving us suggestions and explaining all the options for us. He was very attentive and kept our water glasses full. We have agreed that we will definitely return to the Melting Pot in Knoxville for dinner! Likely even more frequently for just a cheese and/or dessert treat! Thank you!!
Went to the Melting Pot to celebrate a birthday. The service was wonderful from start to finish. The host greeted was very friendly and said "happy birthday ", took us right to our table, and told us our server would be right over. The server was very helpful giving us advise, without over Selling high priced specials or drinks. The food was wonderful, perfect tast and quality. Definitely a special occasion restaurant. However, we did notice half priced wines on Wednesdays with specials cheese and chocolate. Maybe we a great Wednesday night restaurant.
