    Lucked up on a reservation after my friend had suggested we try. When we initially looked, there was nothing available for another month. Needless to say, it was meant to be and it all happened during Triangle Restaurant Week. Our server J'Colby was phenomenal and very upfront which is what I like. He made sure we were well taking care of and had a good night. The apps were tasty: crabs cakes and shaved brussel sprouts. For dinner, we went with the Igloo Wagyu Burger that came with truffle fries and the Rosemary Chicken with Mushroom Risotto. On the plus side, the drinks were made to perfection. I just wish had room for dessert!

    Eating dinner in an Igloo on a rooftop patio? Why yes, that is exactly what this is. Good food, excellent surroundings. Comfortable seating. Igloos are heated but your toes may get a bit chilly. Highly recommend wearing layers, or better yet, bring a blanket to put on your lap. I suppose they should offer blankets to their guests (especially since this a hotel-associated restaurant!) Bring cards or a game - service is slow but once they get organized all is good. Food is good - you must order the fries (trust me!). Have fun. ;-)

    I haven’t been able to book this experience since it premiered, but it did not disappoint. Yes, you are in a covered igloo with an electric heater. There was plenty of room for our group of 7, just make sure the folks who get cold are near the heater. Everything everyone ordered from the fun menu was great and not cold, even though we were there on a cold, very rainy day. Staff was great as well, in spite of the weather.

    The food was great. We were disappointed with the service. Food was cold at times due to waiting for plates and silverware. We waited for water for over an hour and had to ask several times. I recommend the dress code be revised. The venue cost one amount and the overall ambiance didn't match that. I would order the food to go but we will not returning

    Great setting, wish the bottom of the igloos were secured tighter wax not allow so much cold air in. Our server/hostess kept leaving the zipper entrance partially open as well that we had to keep adjusting so that did not help either. Nice atmosphere and decor. Food very good, bit on the expensive side as it isn’t anything too extravagant.

    Very cute idea! Staff was not dressed appropriately for a restaurant ( sweats, sweatshirts street clothes) but they were friendly. Food was okay, but expensive. We only had 2 hours reserved but food took about 45 minutes to arrive (burgers and chicken sandwiches ), so dessert was rushed.

    I was very disappointed in the igloo experience compared to December of 2020. They removed the blue tooth speakers which added to the experience. We were able to play our own Christmas music in 2020. Instead they had a large speaker playing music that I didn’t even recognize. It was very loud and definitely not holiday oriented. They did NOT make it snow during the 2 hour experience. When I asked about it, they told me they only do it on the weekends. I was there on a Thursday night in 2020 and the night was magical. They did make it snow. It’s part of the experience. Overall I was disappointed for the amount of money we spent for a mediocre experience.

    Although food was very quick and tasty, the portions were a bit small for the price. I loved how private it was. You could only hear the people in your igloo. The heater is a nice touch. We brought a deck of cards and next time we will bring a Bluetooth speaker, too. A couple heads up: 1) it may be difficult for anyone with limited mobility to duck in and out of the igloo, navigate around the (uncovered) pool, and head back inside to the closest bathroom 2) there was a 20%service charge 3) you will have to pay hourly deck parking if not a hotel guest. I would do this again.

    The ambience is amazing but that's pretty much where the charm ends. The drinks are delicious and mostly served in the correct glassware. The food is definitely not great so maybe eat some place else before you arrive. Also, the small heaters inside the igloo do very little to keep you warm. It was nice to experience the first time but I probably wouldn't go back. People staying at the hotel are super loud as well.

    Our reservation was for noon, which is right when they open. They were short-staffed, so our drinks and food took longer than expected. I would recommend it for the ambiance, the igloos were cool. The music could've been turned down a bit.

    Birthday dinner with close friends. Our server was amazing, she heard us playing music from our phone and gave a speaker to play music from! She took out picture and was so nice and energetic. Our entree’s were not as tasty as we would’ve hoped but the appetizers were good and the drinks were great!

    Ambiance is excellent, food is horrible and overpriced! 3rd time here, but by far worst experience. I ordered a hot toddy, it was room temperature. Ordered the croquette appetizer, the inside was not only cold, it was actually frozen/ice! I let the server know nicely that just FYI it is frozen on the inside, she apologized and said she would heat it up more. After about 15 minutes she came back and said sorry the chef apologizes but they can't heat the remaining ones (we hadn't touched) and the Chef would have to remake from scratch if we still wanted it- which is odd as these were frozen so nothing was made from scratch. At this point we said we'll just order our dinner. We ordered 2 entrees and a side, the entrees took 30 min the come, the side never came. We let them know and they came 15 minutes later with the side saying sorry we forgot to make it. For all of. that, they of course gave the original app we couldn't eat free, but that was their only compensation for such a poor experience! It wasn't that they were even busy, it was a random weeknight and most of the igloos were empty! Even when seating us, we were waiting in the cold for 5 minutes while our server was trying to seat us, but another worker kept asking her questions about other reservations, like come on let us sit d own and then you can ask about other reservations. The entree quality was average, nothing spectacular. $188 later, I am not impressed and would not recommend, or if you want to go for the environment, get the cheapest thing on the menu!

    Igloos at UnscriptedResponded on December 5, 2022Thanks for your feedback Resh. I apologize that your potato croquettes were not as you ordered. I did talk with the kitchen staff about this. I do want to let you know that everything we make is made in-house, not frozen. We do hope you come back and let us show you the quality and service that thousands of guests have enjoyed.

    The food is probably the saving grace… the wait staff is so nice, but the service is really slow. It’s not the kind of place you go to in a hurry so it wasn’t a huge deal, but waiting 30 minutes for your first drink is less than desirable. Great idea but poorly executed.

    We would suggest warning people that the "heated" igloos aren't that warm, especially on a night like last night, and it's only getting colder. The server was great but the food was not good and overpriced for what it was.

    The scenery and igloos were great. The appetizer was very good. Entrees weren’t great at all, they were very dry. No cheese, no Alfredo’s sauce, and chicken was dry as well. If I recommend this to anyone, I would tell them to just do the appetizer cause everything isn’t worth it. Fried Oreos were good too ,maybe two scoops of ice cream

    Our group had a terrible experience here. We came from Raleigh to celebrate a friends 40th birthday. We were stuck there for 3 hours and never received half of our orders. We felt like prisoners that couldn’t get help, or even get our check so we could get the heck out of there. Apparently they were having kitchen issues, but we ordered a charcuterie board at 8:30 and reminded the server multiple times, and at 10:30 still hadn’t gotten it yet. The manager came over multiple times trying to figure out what was going on, and offered us drinks for the trouble. Besides that every server/host were confused, overwhelmed, and had no idea what was going on. It was just a terrible time. They need to figure out some things before charging people a $50 minimum “experience.” -it’s also surprisingly hard to hit the $50 min per person bc they were out of everything.
