    This was our first time there. We had no clue as to what to expect. There was some guidance given by the wait staff, but lots of questions. It was a decent experience, but we’ll not come back. We paid about $200 for three people (no alcohol). Dessert was the best part. I can melt cheese and dip bread at home. And boiling my meat myself started out fun, but the cool factor died quickly. Again, we’ll no go back.

    I was excited to dine at this restaurant, I have not been to a Melting Pot in years. The Melting Pot was a huge disappointment. The Restaurant lobby appears disheveled, fabric bench had a large stain that looked like someone had an accident on it. The hostess station was cluttered with various cleaning bottles and rags. While waiting for our table, we observed several wait staff touching their noses, faces and hair while carrying food and drinks. I would have preferred to leave, but we were dining with others in our party who wanted to stay. I will not return to this location. The entire restaurant needs a “Deep Clean” and staff needs retraining on food safety. The health department should pay a surprise visit. Don’t waste your money, Raleigh has so many other great dining choices and this is not one of them.

    My first trip to the Melting Pot was on New Years Eve. I really enjoyed the experience and “complimentary” champagne. The decor and ambiance was a little underwhelming, especially for a place people consider to be on the nicer side and/or a date night spot. However, it was contemporary so you can’t go wrong with that. I would definitely go back but not on a holiday. The holiday menu was a tad bit over-priced in my opinion. The drink prices were typical though and the bar tender made our drinks strong :) Great staff all around. They were really friendly.

    It's an experience (and the 1st time we brought the kids with us) but it's not something to do frequently. The cheese fondue and the dessert fondue is delicious but the entrée course is only decent at best. Go for the experience.

    The food was great and the atmosphere as well. Unfortunately we had horrible service. Our waitress disappeared for long stretches in between, we had to flag down other servers to get waters refilled, so not pleasant considering the price paid. What should have been 2 hours turned into 3+hours. Will go back but won’t have the same server. Such a shame.

    They have changed some of the favorite food recipes…and staff and management were denying the fact. One of the managers look at us and flat out lied. Finally, the general manage told us the truth, recipes have been changed. Hoping that enough backlash will get them to reconsider the change in quality.

    The atmosphere, service, and experience are second to none. The food was really good overall, but there were a couple of items that were disappointing. We got the bigger night out, which includes a lobster tail. The lobster tail wasn't cleaned, so it still had the digestive tract in it, which made it really offputting. Second, the Caesar salad had parmesan dusted pine nuts on it, which sounded good, but they were very sweet, as if the parmesan dust was adhered with a sugar syrup, which didn't mix well with the savory flavors of a Caesar.

    This was our first time eating at Melting Pot. The hostess and waitress were very good. The food, for the price? Very disappointing. I have eaten at equally high priced restaurants (where I did not have to cook it myself), and I was actually shocked at the poor quality, and lack of 'vivre' of the entrees. (A salad should be included in the price...not an extra $8.) We ordered the chocolate fondue for dessert. The tray of dippables was stale poundcake, brownies and rice Krispy treats, and unimpressive. The strawberries were not ripe. The chocolate took forever to heat up. We were there for a Birthday celebration. The waitress was kind enough to write 'Happy Birthday' in chocolate sauce on a plate which was appreciated...but other than that, the meal was nothing special. There is a lot of 'hype' around The melting Pot. I personally don't see what the 'big deal' is about it. It is way too expensive for what it is. I would have rather spent the $125 (for 3 people, no cocktails ...just entree and dessert) somewhere else. We will not be back.

    The Melting Pot is our go to place for special occasions. We go 2-6 times a year and its always fun. Our server was Flower this visit, and she was amazing! Fun, professional, knowledgeable, everything you want in a great server. Seating always awkward and unpleasant. I wish they would train the front door staff. Its so easy to do, and it does set the tone for the visit. Yay Flower, Not yay front desk.

    We went to the melting pot last night to celebrate my mothers 87th birthday. As we have severe allergies in the family, I had specified in my booking reservation that we needed at least 3 burners for our party of 8. We also called 3 times to confirm and they called us back to also yet confirm. When we got there, we had a table with only 2 burners which would not allow us to cook food separately for the allergies we needed to manage. They had no other table to sit us together so we were out at two tables. It was infuriating given the precautions and communication prior to our event and the cost of the meal. To top that off, there was no special attention given to my mother for her birthday even though the waiter and hostess staff knew and even confirmed it with me before we were seated at our separate tables. Although the food was good, I’m so very disappointed with how they managed our reservation. We had family from out of state with us and it was frustrating and embarrassing. You need to do better!

    Really enjoyed our time at Melting Pot. Our intention was to only have dessert so we got Milk Chocolate Fondue but ended up also getting the Cheese Fondue. Dyani was an amazing host and truly added to our experience.
