    This is the 2nd time we tried The Melt and the 2nd time we have left somewhat disappointed. Food quality is just okay and portions are small and overpriced. Service was good. Place is loud, trendy and energetic. Not a place for a quiet, intimate occasion.

    Have been to Melt many times...Do not love the front desk staff they are not very accommodating and act as if you are bothering them when you want to make a reservation...NOT very friendly...BUT the wait staff is amazing and the food is delicious.. I love coming here but hate making a reservation...unless I use open table... On one particular night I asked to add two chairs to a fairly large round table and to increase my reservation from 6 to 8...IT WAS A GREAT FAT NO!... There was plenty of room at the table and it would have increased our bill by at least 100 dollars.. I would still recommend the restaurant.. The bar drinks are delicious and the bartender made my Cosmo exactly how I ordered it...

    I have had the pleasure of talking with the Chef and staff at the Melt restaurant. The cuisine prepared for you at the Melt equally compares to the quality presented to you at the finest 5-Star restaurants in NYC ! The ambience comes within 98 percent of these fine restaurants in which celebrities dine. You will NOT be disappoinyed. Bon Appetit !

    I love restaurant week to try new restaurants in our area. Last year we went to Shula's and this year we decided on Melt. My husband made his selection from the regular menu specials: Melt's Surf and Turf, 2 filets over butternut squash mash with 3 grilled jumbo shrimp. I went with the 3 course meal for $30 splitting my appetizer and dessert with my husband: calamari, chicken marsala, and lemon ricotta pound cake. I must say everything was delicious. The service terrific. 5 stars all the way.

    I took my mother for her 87th Birthday Lunch treat. We totally enjoyed ourselves, extending our visit for several hours. From the surprise birthday glass of champagne, through the apps and the bottle of wine with our lunch entrees, our day was fabulous! We weren't rushed or ignored. We had the perfect blend of attention and alone time. Thanks Melt!

    There were 6 of us including 2 kids. We each enjoyed our delectable entrees. Well prepared meals were beautifully presented and delicate flavors were not over the top, but complemented the excellent quality of the food. Among the top eating experiences of my long life. I will look forward to returning and recommending it to others. Will not wait so long before my next visit either.

    Tried for the first time....very impressed....The food was excellent and the servers were very attentive to our needs and friendly. The ambiance was outstanding, clean and beautifully decorated. Would recommend this restaurant highly especially for special occasions. The only complaint I had was the dessert wasn't really up to par with the rest of the meal. I had the lemon pound cake, it was just okay and my husband had some sort of chocolate dessert that was more on the order of gelatin/pudding type (not a whole lot of taste to it) so we wouldnt order that again.

    Service was poor and inexperienced. Food was average and appeared to sit prior to serving. Ordered white wine and it was served room temp. Asked if they had chilled bottle was told to wait until ice bucket chilled. Waitress was not attentive (had to pour my own wine). Ordered calamari and it was cold. Manager removed from bill. However waitress catagorized that as "the calamari was on us". Ordered scallops and they were served luke warm. For the price it was incredibily average. Travel alot visit many restaurants. This one is a no return.

    Ever since this restaurant has opened, it has remained the Lehigh Valley's finest architectural space. The food however is so uninspired and sometime just terrible (pizza). We generally son't even consider going but a friend invited us as she had a dine out coupon as part of a charity package given her for a donation. We were all of the same opinion. Understanding sensibilities of how food is to be made and presented just escapes these people. Any ther town but a restaurant starved area and they are out of business.

    This restaurant had great atmosphere. We dined indoors which was very nice but they also had tables outside. Great martini's and everyone liked their food. Good choice of food from pasta, seafood, steak, lamb and veal. The sides which are a la carte were very large portions so you can share which is what we did. Our waitress was extremely nice and upbeat. You can find something on the menu from $18 up to mid $30's. This restaurant was a very nice find.

    Service was decent for a busy night. Very noisy. Food was ok but should be better for the price. Biggest turnoff - NO parking. No valet and due to the proximity to movie theaters, Fruday night at 7 pm seems like we parked a mile away. Tough walk in heels.

    My husband and I went for our 5 year anniversary and the staff didn't disappoint from the start. We were promptly seated and greeted by our server. Dinner & drink specials sounded wonderful and our server was VERY knowledgeable on the menu and answered all of our questions. Dinner was fantastic and everything was cooked perfectly. We even celebrated with champagne and special dessert at the end of our meal. I'd highly recommend for anyone who wants something more than casual dining.

    After my fifth visit to Melt, I'm pleased to find that the service, food and ambiance are still excellent. Dinner prices are rather high but the quality of the food, in a courses, is top notch. My guest this last visit was extremely impressed, this being her first time dining at Melt, with the whole experience and would definitely visit again. Our server was polite, attentive, personable and professional. I would recommend Melt to anyone who enjoys great food and wonderful atmosphere.
