Now that grills have been added as a cooking option, the whole restaurant is full of thick smoke. There is no ventilation whatsoever.

They were out of many items. For example they did not have the wine we requested, onion rings, edamame, the best aged Port on the menu nor one or two of the desserts. We carried out our dessert and found what was packed for us had very few pieces of fruit, and was mostly cake pieces. And the white chocolate was horrible.

Our waiter did a good job.

The place was full of children and very noisy. Not great for a romantic evening.

So it was my fiancé’s birthday and I was taking her out to dinner and we have been to the melting pot plenty of times before but this time it was subpar the service was great and our waiter was good but the food and the atmosphere was off we had decided to order the wine flights and the bourguignon and we didn’t know that the cooking style was gonna char everything we put into it the waiter probably turned the heat up just a little too much and the cooking times were off by a mile so we settled for char on the outside and raw on the inside foods and you are supposed to get the glass of wine before each dish and we didn’t get the second flight until after we finished our salads and started the main course and to top it all of a fly or fruit fly landed on my plate when I was eating and then into my wine glass idk what happened usually me and my girl have a fantastic night at the melting pot but this night was just a fiasco and now we know what not to order

Joe was my waiter at the Raleigh location. He was great. The table was set up beautifully. I had a great time. Would 100% come back and recommend it to a friend.

We were very disappointed with our recent visit to The Melting Pot. The food was old as there was brown lettuce in our salads and some of our fruit for our dessert course was brown. We were prepared for a long meal as we have dined at The Melting Pot before but this visit was extremely long. This was due to delays either with the kitchen or our server. At one point, we had to wait for vegetables to be prepared by the kitchen. We visited for our daughter's birthday and were very disappointed in the service, food, and lack of concern by the staff.

This was a birthday dinner, and we noted that on the reservation, but there was no mention at all of that at the restaurant, so I wonder why they bother to ask. Otherwise the food was excellent, the pace comfortable and untrusted, the server attentive, and the check large.

Wait staff is very good. Hostess could be friendlier. Food excellent. When cheese is used as an entree, bigger portions would be nice.
Have eaten at about 10 across the USA. Many numerous times. My favorite was Colorado Springs.

Very nice experience. It’s was my son’s birthday and the manger brought him a card. Nice gesture :)

We enjoyed our dinner. Good portions, right amount of food. Some of our party wanted cheese and others salad, so the waiter figured out the best “value” for us to order so as not to overcharge. We appreciated that.

My only feedback, and it’s really not about me, was that the way they designed the booths the lights hang at the one end of the table, causing the poor waiters to either duck around or hit their heads on it. Feel bad for them. Not their fault. Just simply should have been designed better. That’s all.

Overall an enjoyable experience would go back again.

When is The Melting Pit not sublime? We've been customers since 1984, when they were on Creekside by the Longbranch. The food is always marvelous. I could eat nothing but cheese fondue and bread all night, but the dark chocolate fondue is too good to pass up. Definitely a favorite spot for very special occasions.

The Melting Pot is our go to place for special meals when we can afford it. We always have an amazing experience, and this was no exception. For some reason, the proteins this time were even better than normal! We will always recommend The Melting Pot!!

Every time we come here Everyone goes out of their way to ensure that we are happy satisfied with our food and have an enjoyable experience from the hostess all the way to Management there’s not a single person that doesn’t ask if there’s if there’s anything they can do for us The food is absolutely wonderful even though we prepared ourselves the cuts of meat are perfect the salads are fresh the fruit is picked perfectly everything is absolutely top-notch it is well worth the money you spend and if you’re really good at watching your emails if you join their email listings you can go for less than normal when they offer coupons our server this time was extra nice she went above and beyond because my birthday was coming up she suggested some wonderful pairings and was spot on for every need we may of had again I cannot do anything but speak highly of this restaurant and all of their staff if you want to good experience you need to come here the melting pot is a wonderful wonderful experience !

This location is as local to our home as we can get. We go every year for our son's birthday and whenever we can in between!
As our son turned 21 this year, the management and the staff went out of their way to make it the best experience yet! They exceeded our expectations this year.
Our greeting from the hostess was warm and welcoming, the manager and owner coming over to chat and for hugs and the sweet conversations with the rest of the staff is always so appreciated.
Thank you for being our friends and our favorite place to go to. Love you guys!!!!

My girlfriend treated me to dinner in celebration of a recent promotion at work. As per usual, it was such a fun experience. We did the July special they were running which discounted the dinner quite a bit. I would recommend this place to anyone celebrating a birthday, anniversary, engagement, promotion, or other special occasion. A little too pricey for a casual weekend dinner.
