I've been a returning customer to the Melting Pot for years, and honestly, the overall experience is getting worse, not better. During my most recent trip to the Melting Pot, our server was nice, but we hardly saw her. We had to wait entirely too long for drinks and we were done with courses before we would see her for another 20 minutes. The food wasn't at its best quality, either. I'll probably still return to this restaurant, because I can't resist good cheese and chocolate, but I'll definitely be trying out other restaurants for future celebrations.

Melting pot is a great intimate place for a fun creative meal. Be prepared for an experience and at least an hour and a half. You cook your own food which is a lot of fun! The menu is a little confusing so ask your service person who can explain. Other than that, this is a great place for a date or celebration!!!

It was a really nice date night place. I wouldn't eat there every day, but it had a very intimate vibe. Our waitress was also very good. I would go again.

Staff was accommodating and waitress was friendly. We asked to be seated somewhere else because we had a big group and they put us in a private room. The private rooms are awesome when you have a family of 7. I would suggest trying it out if they have one available.

Came here for our anniversary and had a awesome time. Dan explained the menu to us because it was our first time eating at The Melting Pot. Our Waitress Tanasia was really nice and even offer us one of her favorite desserts that wasn't on the menu anymore. It made our night even more special. The atmosphere was cozy. I'm glad we choose The Melting Pot. To celebrate our anniversary.

The Durham location has moved to a new location of HWY 54, in a little shopping area few doors down from Harris Teeter (across the street from Sprouts grocery store). This location has more small intimate sitting areas with privacy for snall groups and couples. The Melting Pit is over priced, staff is nice, food portion size is ok. The grill option is smoky. I didn't like it. Don't go anywhere after dinner, you will smell like dinner. The booth option was not ideal for our party. We had to reach and stand up to cook. It was a fun experience with family.

We drove two hours here to celebrate my birthday. We had reservations and were seated early, which was nice. Our waiter, Josh, was very nice and knowledgeable. He had a great attitude and demeanor. It was my second time to a Melting Pot, and my husband’s first time. The only negative experience we had was out of the control of the staff. The lights went out and power was lost for a few seconds. No biggie. Overall, food and service was good.

This was a new experience for me. It was actually fun after I got the hang of it. Our server was truly a guide who explained the process. Yes, I will do it again but it is an experience to be shared. Don't try to do it alone.

Celebrated Mother's Day at this location and had a Great time with my mom. The 4 course meal was amazing. I would like to try the other locations to compare the experience. Definitely recommend to anyone who's never had the chance to experience.

Had food with my friends in here. and it was a amazing experience. we took 4 course meal and everything was delicious. It took us 2 and half hour for food and fun part was you cook in front of you.

We love the food and the service is impeccable. If you arrive with a family in off hours they give you your own booth with doors as well. Just don’t expect anything to happen quickly, even simple things. As long as you have time this will be a great time.

This place makes eating out fun. Such a fun experience. A little pricey but worth it, especially for special occasions like birthday etc.
