Always a fun place to go. Good and ambiance after great and the food is unique. Great for a date night!
Delicious as always
For my mom’s Birthday we came here. I loved that they have vegetarian friendly options, and the Classic alpine cheese fondue was amazing. Our waitress was very friendly and I appreciated that she never forgot anything but dinner moved at a snail crawl pace. Wonderful atmosphere and overall great experience!
Excellent variety of tastes. Your complete pallet gets
The Melting Pot is a great place to enjoy a nice dinner with someone special. My date and I missed an appointment in New York because of the Nor'easter, so we decided to make the most of our time dining at special venues in Raleigh (no New York, but still...) Our server, Alexis made the night wonderful. Perfect timing, great recommendations, wonderful demeanor — we couldn't have asked for a better experience (in Raleigh, that is). We did have to wait a bit after our reservation time to be seated; unfortunately, that has been our norm with TMP (if you're reading this, Management, please fix that issue). Otherwise, great night and great service.
Our server was amazing. The food was great and atmosphere but he really made it a great experience
I had my first dinner at the Melting Pot 15 years ago and was very impressed. For our special occasion, we ate here again. The food was very disappointing this time. The baked potato fondue was too thick, making it challenging to spear the items. The batters for our entrees did not stick to our fondue items when cooking for the allotted cooking times. Eating food fried in oil was not the dining experience we wanted. It was overpriced for the poor experience. I won't be returning, nor will I recommend this restaurant to anyone.
Dining at the Melting Pot is always an enjoyable experience.
The whole experience was incredible. Hailey was our server. She was awesome. It was our first time there and she explained everything and made sure we understood. Definatly a special occasion establishment. For two couples we went all out and enjoyed drinks and got lobster upgrades and spent $298 not including a tip.
I love this place and try really hard to visit once every so many months. I take advantage of my fondue goers specials that come through my email.
Overall experience was good. Server was very helpful as the menu was a bit overwhelming for a first timer. The fondue experience was very fun. My only complaint is that the inside of the restaurant was pretty dirty. Lots of old dirt and crud in the window sills. Made me afraid to touch anything.
Service was attentive and wonderful despite how busy they were. It's really too much food, so we almost never go, but it's very tasty and good for a splurge. My preschooler had been begging to try it and we felt he was about to the age where he could pay enough attention to be safe around the hot food and cooktop. He did very well with some reminders and kept proclaiming it the best dinner ever and telling us how fun it was. It takes a long time to have a fondue dinner just by its nature, so we were pleased he was able to remain patient - we were there a bit under 2 hours.
My husband had called ahead to make some arrangement for flowers to be at the table for my birthday and that portion got forgotten, but we also weren't charged for it, so it was fine.
Our server was very knowledgable and friendly - and also engaging and patient with the 4 1/2 year old, which we greatly appreciated. We really enjoyed all of the food, and left feeling a little overly full but not too bad. Definitely a good spot for special occasions.
Food is great. Took niece for the first time and she loved it!!!
This was my first time going and I absolutely loved it!
The food was great as always, but we had a very disinterested waitress.
Neither my husband or I had ever been before so we weren’t super sure what to expect. Our waiter didn’t seem to know what he was talking about. Never really answered our questions. Just talked in a round about way and then asked if we had any questions....after we had asked a question. I’m not a fan of just boiling meat and that’s it. If there was a little flat top to sear he meat as well, that would be so much better. Dessert was the only decent part of the meal and even then I’m pretty sure our waiter left out part of what was supposed to be melted into our chocolate, which definitely wasn’t the milk chocolate we were supposed to get. All in all, probably will never go again.
The overall expierence was excellent!! Our server was named Leah and she done a great job at explaining to us what the meal was and breaking it down for anyone to understand. It was me and my dates first time going so it was a rather pleasent expierence. We will defiantly be going back in the near future! Great food, waitress, and scenery.
The food and staff was AWESOME. Our waitress was very friendly. All the questions we had about different things on the menu, he could answer.
We love this place the food is awesome and so is the service. It is a place we love to go to for special occasions.
I was really excited to try this place because I’ve never had fondue before but was very disappointed when it came down to the fondue. All I tasted was wine I know fondue is supposed to be made with wine but I didn’t think that’s all I would taste. Also I was expecting to be able to dip my entree into the fondue but instead you cook your meat or seafood whatever you get into a boiling pot of water with herbs which was weird since it isn’t a fondue place the only good thing there was the dessert but other than that it’s way to over priced spent 130$ that day.
My first time dining at the at The Melting Pot and it was the best experience I can recall having. Most definitely will be back.
Mary did a great job serving us and answering all of our questions! It was a great lunch!
Good food and great for a special date but a once in a while thing cause of price.
A Great time with Great service and a Great experience!!!!
Birthday dinner for my daughter.
Hailey was great! She took the time to explain the process and made it so enjoyable! Thank you!
I absolutely love the melting pot. I never have a bad experience and if something is wrong with the food, the waiters and waitresses are always so willing to fix it. Thank you for making my 2tth birthday so amazing.
If you want a special treat, then this is the place to go. Be prepared to spend some money but it is worth it. If you have a sweet tooth, the dessert chocolate menu has something for every chocoholic! We had white chocolate with Baileys, and it was amazing. My other favorite was the cheese fondue. We had the cheese which had tomatoes and pesto. Fabulous! I could have eaten more of this and called it a meal! The seafood and accompanying dipping sauces were a nice plus to the sampler platter as an entrée. The only negative is the cost; however, you do get what you pay for! Our waiter, JT, had perfect timing and was outstanding. He would appear with the next course at just the right time.
Early Valentines Celebration. Our server Sam was excellent!
Was our first time eating and was a wonderful experience. Fast & friendly service. Food was fresh and tasted very good.
Come ready to eat if you plan on dining at a Melting Pot! They do not play around with ordering options serving typically 3-4 courses. The plan they seem to push the most is a set price for a cheese fondue appetizer, individual side salads, main course proteins, and dessert fondue. I had to tap out after a few pieces into the main entrée of proteins. Since we were not able to eat the dessert, they gave us a coupon to come back at any time to eat our dessert fondue at the bar. It is not worth busting your gut to eat it when so full, it is not enjoyable.
Go here for the experience and eat slowly to enjoy each bite.
Our server for the evening was Mary. She was very knowledgeable about the menu and her explanation of the condiments was very helpful. we explained that we were in a bit of a rush and she always had the next course on the table when one was finished. We couldn't have asked for a server with a better attitude and personality.
We loved our server and enjoyed the night very much. Thank you for a great experience.
I had not eaten here in ages but it made for a great date night. The meal was not fast, which is good, you don't feel rushed and can just enjoy the conversation.
Had a great dinner with a friend and we both we very happy with the dinner
Tried here for the first time for my wifes birthday.would definitely recommend.the food was absolutely delicious and our server went through every step of ordering and how to cook it.would definitely go back for a second time
The Melting Pot is always a pleasure to go to. Raleigh's location has a very romantic and cozy atmosphere, perfect for an anniversary.
I went for restaurant week and it was amazing! I went last year in Durham for restaurant week and i love the food and my waitress was amazing. I wish i remembered her name
It’s a lot of food. With 4 people and only 1 pot you have to agree on 1 course. Meat was excellent, Shrimp and salmon very good but ahi tuna was fishy. Chocolate fondue is always great. They had some special treats for gluten free eaters. It took us 2 1/2 hours and that made all worth it.
It was my first time going and our waitress was very helpful and friendly. Very fun and great experience, will definitely go again
