Really a nice choice when you're in the mood for something different. The location is off the beaten path and the food is unique and in a relaxing atmosphere. My family enjoys fondue and Melting Pot does a great job at it. A bit pricey for what you get but we'll go back.

I've been here 2 or 3 times for special dates. Budget lots of time to enjoy and fondue all the courses! The staff is older and more mature than most chain type places. Nice wine list too.

Went w. my husband for an anniversary celebration. We sat in Lover's Lane which was awesome but wow...you pay a lot of money for a lot of chunks of food that you cook and season and sauce up yourself. I realize it's a fondue place and maybe it's fun with a group of NON-hungry buddies but to take 20 minutes explaining how long YOU need to cook the pork, chicken, shrimp and beef? Really? Novelty wore off after the bread and the melted cheese. I recommend restaurants where someone cooks the food for you.

Recently dined there with wife. Server was Tony. Very helpful, very nice, very conversational. Even when we asked him something he wasn't quite sure of, he promptly found the answer. Very helpful with wine selection. We wanted a wine for dinner and his selection was perfect. We ordered a port for dessert and, again, it was perfect. On top of that, his selections - from dinner to drinks - weren't the most expensive suggestions (as we've run into in the past). He explained to us that cost of wine doesn't mean it's the best, and he was right. Can only assume that most of the staff is that helpful.
Great atmosphere, romantic, relaxing, and well worth the money and time spent. Looking forward to our next visit.

I have been to the MeltingPot multiple times and have enjoyed every experience! I went to the Durham location last Saturday with my husband for his birthday. The host staff was wonderful, we were promptly seated with a smile. Our waitress was informative, sweet and truly seemed to enjoy waiting on us. We had the Big Night Out with Cheddar cheese and the flaming turtle for chocolate. The food was great, but it does take 2 hours to have all four courses so make sure you give ample time for dinner. Overall food, and service was tops and we enjoyed our night.

I agree with the previous reviewer about the waitstaff. We sat in the "lovers lane" section and our waitress was bad. I could hear other employees and they were great. It started off poorly as the waitress took 20 minutes to even come to our table. She almost seemed like she didn't know how to use the equipment. My companion was given the wrong salad and it took her awhile to get a new one. However, the new one had dressing on it and she clearly asked for dressing on the side. The waitress then said that the kitchen staff doesn't speak great English so they can't put dressing on the side. Have you ever heard anything so crazy. When we got the chocolate, there was a cherry stem in there. Did we get a used one? However, we talked to the owner after the meal and he did a VERY good job of handling it. He was shocked to hear our claims but verified it with her. He was awesome and we really appreciate that. The food--as always--was delicious. It's a place to definitely check out but I hope you get a good waiter/waitress.

I have dined the MeltingPot restaurants in Raleigh and Myrtle Beach. I was excited to see one open closer to my home in Durham. It is expensive, but worth the experience. The food is great, the atmosphere is relaxing, romantic and fun. We sat in Lovers Lane, a table for 2 with a privacy curtain.
-VERY romantic.

The one slightly odd part of our evening was that our service was a bit off. Our waitress was rather overenthusiastic and almost hyper when explaining the menu to us, but then repeatedly made jokes about wanting to quit her job throughout the evening because of the owner. We asked for a wine recommendation, but she knew little about the wine selection. She was a capable server and very helpful, but her comments to us were a bit bizarre.

We enjoyed our meal, I just think that a restaurant that expensive, should be a little more selective when hiring servers.
