    We had a big party and the service was not the best. We had to ask for essential things for the grill like tongs and spoons for getting out potatoes etc. as well as seasonings and then the wrong meats came out for my daughter. For $277 meal it could have been better.

    As always, it was fabulous! Our server, Matt, was very attentive. He did a great job explaining a new main meal we had not tried before. Our drinks were filled promptly, our food served at appropriate time intervals. We are always so very grateful for Chris, Matt and their team for all they do for us and everyone else that goes there!

    We booked a reservation at the Melting Pot in Raleigh as a celebration of our wedding earlier that day. I made a note in the comments on open table when making the reservation and even brought it up to the waiter when he didn’t initially say anything. While the food and overall service were good, I’m disappointed that no one made us feel special in light of our very special celebration. I come from the industry and it was disheartening to have been so excited to celebrate our marriage at this establishment and not a single person made any kind of acknowledgment of the note or comment I shared. Not even looking for something free, but at least well wishes when we arrived and were seated or a drop in from the manager. Just something to make us feel special. After I told the waiter, he never even said congratulations, just kind of smiled and nodded. Overall, not a poor experience, but not the welcome we were hoping for.

    This was a restaurant that has been on our bucket list for a while, but unfortunately we were very disappointed. We made reservations for a party of 6, but were sat at a table with 2 burners even though they had a table available with 3 burners that would better accommodate our party. We asked to be moved and staff was great with our request. The cheese fondue was excellent, as was the dessert. The main course was very sub-par and most of us didn't even eat 10% of the meat we had to choose from. Ambience wasn't great; lighting was overall dim, but bright lights shown down onto us making it very uncomfortable, and there was no music or background noise other than the few parties seated around us. The restaurant felt like it needed updated and cleaned, and the women's bathrooms were pretty gross. At the end of our dinner, 6/6 agreed we would never come back, our 4 course meal was not near worth the money we paid, and this place is more for the "experience," even though our experience wasn't anything of significance.

    Underwhelmed from the moment we entered the restaurant. The floors were dirty. Many tables were not cleared from previous guests and the salad had to be returned based on poor food quality. Service was fine. Food quality was fine. We were disappointed .

    We went to celebrate my daughter's birthday and our anniversary. We had a very knowledgeable server, Riley, who was very attentive and friendly. We were impressed with both him and the manager, who came and cleared our table off and asked about our experience. I could tell that he ran the restaurant well and was respected by his employees. Thank you for a great night!

    Speedy for everyday dining, very nice for special occasions. On this particular occasion we rated service as poor because our server, who was not new, after delivering the main course, said just let him know if we needed more sauces or vegetables or drinks… then disappeared. We ultimately had to go find the hostess and ask that she track down our server. When he finally came back there was not even a hint from him that he recognized that he had had abandoned us for nearly half an hour. Otherwise we always enjoy the melting pot.

    We usually go as a couple and always had an outstanding time. But our daughter wanted to go to Melting Pot for her 18th birthday - so we had a party of six. With two fondue pots there wasn't any problems with access/cooking and the table was cozy enough to hear the conversation. Service was top notch as always and the food was wonderful as expected. But the best part was the fun we all had.

    We were celebrating our son‘s 16th birthday. Food was awesome and the service was great. We were very surprised at the cost of the meal after it was all said and done… Super expensive. But I do think we over ordered for the size of our party. It might’ve been nice if the server would have guided us on how much we should order. It was hard to know. But overall, it was a good time. Keep in mind, this is not a quick experience. For all three courses, you will be at the restaurant well over two hours.

    This restaurant is more for the experience than it is for amazing food. The multi step meal is fun for all but really expensive. For perspective, meal for 7, without drinks was over 350 dollars.

    We were put at a very small table when they had larger tables available. Stinks for them because we ordered less items instead of ordering a larger amount since we were in a small booth with only two burners. Food was good and our server was nice.
