    Server was very negative. Talked about how he had a horrible day, didn’t like the food at the melting pot and only got a job there because the “money was good”. Requested rose petals on the table and there were none. There was a vase with flowers they tried to charge me $20 for that I had to request off. When I requested off, our rude server tried to tell me I asked for it and tried to fight me on taking it off the bill. The serving sizes for the cheese and chocolate was incredibly low. Server also would pre-bus the table while we were still eating. Even took out pot away while we still had meat cooking in it. Very upsetting and was an awful experience for our first date.

    My waitress name was Ivory, I do believe! She was absolutely amazing . It was mine and my daughters first time eating there a and she thoroughly explained everything, step by step! The waitress made the experience well worth it! We will definitely be going back! And you get a 4 course menu with a lot of food! It was great!

    Food as always was excellence. Being that it takes about 2 hrs to complete a meal, i understand why prices are what they are compared to higher table turnover restaurants. Only complaints i have is the runnier green goddess sauce compared to previous versions. Harder to keep that gg sauce in a mushroom cap. Also the restaurant vibe and price doesn’t match the music choice. Imo the dinner music should be some low-key jazz dinner vibe vs pop hits.

    Overall decent experience but the website and the prices are VERY misleading. The website & the email I received after booking the reservation both clearly stated 2 for $95. When we got there for Valentines day they had a fixed menu which was 2 for $190. Definitely wayyy off from what the website stated. The website should have at least stated something along the lines of holiday price exceptions. If we knew it was THAT expensive we would have gone somewhere else. We’ve had better food at Ruth’s Chris for cheaper.

    I will never go for Valentine’s again! $300 for a pre fixed menu after tax and a 20% tip they automatically added even being a party of 2! Definitely was not worth the money. I couldn’t even get all 5 courses because of a shellfish allergy that they didn’t even offer a substitution or change the price for not being able to have it. Such a waste.

    This was so disappointing. It was supposed to be a romantic dinner and we ended up in a room with a bunch of kids, seated at a table with other couples separated by a paper folding divider, with so much noise we couldn’t carry on a conversation. The meal and wine was $350, and it would have been more romantic at a Sonic drive in eating coneys. We have been to Melting Pot/Durham at Valentines also and that was a spectacular affair. So disappointed Wilmington couldn’t keep it classy instead of trying to pack in every reservation they could get. Who splits tables with paper dividers??? Who would seat a professional couple dressed in evening attire in a room full of 7-10 yr olds for a Valentine dinner. When we asked about moving to a booth or quieter location we were told they were booked out all night… That was our last trip to Melting Pot Wilmington. We will drive to Durham or simply find another restaurant from now on.

    For Valentines day they have a set menu. This was not advertised well at all. Saw many people come in and once the menu situation was explained to them they got up and left. 195$ per couple seems like a stretch for this menu. We only wanted the cheese fondue and chocolate fondue. We ended up staying for the whole meal, the cheese is always great, salad was okay, the meats they gave us were alright but I think it was the cook style that may have hindered it. The Chocolate was the kicker, it was delicious. Overall, the melting pot is a good place to eat if they aren't doing a special on the menu. However it's usually not ridiculously expensive, but with the valentines day menu, we feel as though it was overpriced. We'll still probably go back, just not when there's a special going on. The staff was friendly as usual.

    We have been to the melting pot numerous times, but this visit was during the Valentine’s weekend menu. I can 100% recommend to visit a different restaurant where the amount of food and quality for $190 (pre taxes and gratuity, no cocktails, small portions) would be much better spent. Overall highly disappointed. Salads were smaller portions than normal. The included appetizer was 4 shrimp. We got our chocolate togo and received half the usual dippers and chocolate. I had a tea and my husband had one cocktail and the bill was $289…..never again.

    We purchased the birthday package which was supposed to include a picture that was framed for us. We never got that. We were enjoying our night so we forgot to ask about it but it seems like that is something they should have remembered and done for us considering they advertised it to me and we payed for it.
