    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.

    We had been wanting to try the igloos for months but could never get anyone at the hotel to call us back to make a reservation. Finally got lucky and found a spot online. Pros: the food was excellent, comfy furnishings, good cocktails, fun atmosphere. Cons: slow and inattentive service, being out of several things on the menu, high prices with surprise service charge, and noise. There was a speaker inside the igloo but we couldn't use it because the general rooftop music the hotel was playing was so loud. We also noticed other people without reservations allowed to go into the empty igloos to take pics while their children jumped on the furniture. The igloos are supposed to be carefully and powerfully sanitized for each use. So that made us wonder how clean our igloo was, and we never saw any be cleaned in the over 2 hours it took them to serve us lunch. This was fun for once but probably won't go back.

    While they appear to want to be gourmet, and present to be that, they need a chef that’s up to par. The food was just not anywhere close to the mark - mediocre at best. Most chains serve better. Our waiters (2) both served courses without silver, and then when requested gave one of our party a rolled napkin with 4 forks in it. So there is no real table service to speak of though they were polite and seemed thoughtful. They just didn't know how to serve. The desserts were even less than mediocre. To add to the experience it was too loud to talk, an environment, though amusing, that was most contrary to finer dining. I would skip the food and have a drink.

    I came to Unscripted for my 39th birthday and I am completely glad that we did. It was a girls night and EVERYONE was awesome. To the 2 beautiful ladies at the front desk, the staff at the patio bar, housekeeping and Sonny/Sunny our bartender. Hotel was beautifully decorated and beds slept fantastic. We will definitely return

    We were super excited to come here! We were unable to come last year so we took advantage this year! The setup, the ambiance, and drinks were fantastic. It felt magical and really what we pictured. The biggest issue we had was the food. We menu sounded amazing and we were all super excited. We were really shocked about how poor of quality all the food was. The main disappointment was the charcuterie board. What The menu described and what was given were not the same at all. The charcuterie board given looked like a lunchable was dumped on the plate with a piece of orange thrown on top. We ordered salads and half the ingredients listed on the menu were not actually given and on the salad. For the price of the food and how poor of quality it was, it was a big disappointment and we decided to not order entrees to be even more disappointed. The final comment was in regards to how the staff person spoke to us and also rushed us out. We were all fully aware of the minimum needed to be there, hence why we were ordering plenty of appetizers and cocktails from the start. Then we were also aware that the rental was for 2hrs. She continued to remind us and almost rushed us to finish when we still have 20-30 minutes left while everyone else that was at their rental when we arrived appeared to be having a grand time with their waitress. It was very disappointing. Overall doing it to see it and experience was great but we will definitely not be pursuing it again next year.

    This was our second trip to the igloos and we had a great time. The food and drinks are great and service was attentive. The igloos themselves are best part! It is such a fun, cozy, private space to hang out. It was especially beautiful with the Durham sunrise. We brought a cake to celebrate our friend’s birthday and they pre-sliced it and brought it to the table!

    It was a surprise 30th birthday dinner for my boyfriend. We absolutely loved the entire experience. We arrived 10 mins early and we were immediately brought to our igloo. The DJ was amazing, played a variety of energetic music. The drinks were delicious. The igloo was surprisingly nice and warm, it was pretty cold that night went from 50 to high 30’s that night. The ambience was cool because as it got darker out and the lights came on, it just became so magically. Our server Brittany was great, her and the other staff members were great on checking in on us. The food was great, I had the land and sea and my bf had the short ribs, we pretty much licked our plates clean. For appetizers we had the bull salsa/guacamole and chips, they were pretty good. Now DESERTS, the bread pudding and the fried Oreos were to DIE FOR!!!!! Definitely order both, we couldn’t believe how good it was. My bf is from England and said the lava cake reminds him of a candy dessert back home, so for him that was a walk down memory lane. The entire experience was absolutely worth every penny. The service was beyond excellent, I’m happy they allow their servers to bundle up, because outside of the igloo it was pretty cold. Being on a roof top just adds more Magic’s during the sunset time. Our reservation was from 530p to 730p which gave us the views of daylight, sunset, and night time. I feel like I will definitely be booking again for a 530p igloo with my bf and some friends. The only thing I feel like they needed was coffee, that was the only thing not available on the menu. I wish I could of had coffee with desert, but their spiced hot chocolate definitely did it’s job in replacing.

    We had such a wonderful experience! So good that we were looking to book again for my husband’s birthday next month! Our server, Janelle, was the sweetest! She was attentive, made nice conversation, got my special order correctly ordered for me, and came back to check on us often! Janelle even took a picture of us when I asked! She went above and beyond to ensure that we had a wonderful night, and we really appreciated that. The food was SO GOOD. We were not expecting the food to be so good! We ordered the house made tortilla chips with guacamole and salsa (I’ve never liked guacamole until I tried this guac 🤩🤩 SO YUMMY), the charcuterie plate (fresh and delish), the potato croquettes, and the coconut shrimp (OMG 🤤😋🤩), we also had the seafood pasta, bread pudding, and lava cake! Everything was fresh and scrumptious! We can’t wait to return next month, hopefully we’ll get Janelle again, but everyone was helpful and I know we’ll be in good hands no matter what!

    My wife and I were celebrating Valentine’s Day a day early due to our busy schedules. The igloos was something we were wanting to do since last year but didn’t have the opportunity to. We are so glad we were finally able to do it. The whole experience completely exceeded our expectations. The food was amazing, the drinks perfect. Not too strong not too light. Tamarin was a great server/host. Her recommendations were spot on. She was personable, gave great conversation and was all around awesome. We need more people like tamarin in the service industry!!! We will definitely be back hopefully soon!
