    Really enjoyed a recent dinner at Melt. The food was excellent. What I loved most was the quality wine list. It is pricey though... We had excellent service and an overall good time (as evidenced by eating until we were too full!)

    Melt is local - we have been to the bar on the upper floor many times and regard the place as "trendy and arrogant", but I dont recall ever eating there since it opened years ago. We were VERY surprised Saturday night however! Excellent service, fantastic food (made to order off the menu) and a really great evening. It was our anniversary and we were treated to a couple extras that we didn't expect but really enjoyed. After our experience I can assure Melt that we WILL be back again very soon.

    This was my 4th time dining at Melt, and my 2nd time for lunch. There is a diverse selection of items. Everything tasted great. The service was excellent as well. I actually left my cell phone at the table, and since the reservation was through Open Table, they had a contact number to notify us (since it was my number, it didn't do me any good, but they made an effort to help nonetheless). We will definitely return for lunch and dinner.

  • Birthday dinner
    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 8/22/2014
    Last week I had been looking online for a place to have dinner out of the area ( I live in Berks ) for my birthday. I had wanted to find a restaurant that would be romantic, had an ambient setting, good food, and offered a spectacular glass of wine. We both had an excellent night at Melt and it offered everything I was looking for. My own plate, the salmon was delicious and my boyfriend also enjoyed the swordfish. I loved the lighting hanging from the 2nd floor but my only disappointment was that since this was my first time, I hadn't known there was an upstairs, outdoor seating area. Our server did not mention it nor how to get up there. I would defintely recommend this place to others and would love to come back for drinks upstairs.

    The quality of the fish and vegetables was very good, but I found the preparation to be rather heavy for summer....too much butter, cheese, dressings, etc Portion sizes were generous. Dim lighting - difficult to read the menu - saw people using the light from their cell phones. Service was fair - forgot to bring a side dish....arrived when we were almost finished our meal.

    Dined on 8/14/2014
    I took my wife to Melt for her birthday and a date night, we book on-line and they called to confirm our 8pm booking the day of. ON arrival we were sat next a large family with several young kids (#kidsinbedby8pmnot?)...not exactly the romantic night we had in mind since we have 3 young kids ourselves and wanted some alone time. However, they were very good and moved us to a table that was more discrete. As it was my wife's birthday they gave her a glass of complimentary champagne (very nice). The food was excellent quality as always. She had their crab cakes and I tried one of them...very fresh crab meat and great quality. I had their fillet (perfect). They brought out a complimentary birthday cheesecake for my wife...very nice.

    When my girlfriend and I arrived for our 9:15 reservation, I requested a table on the roof. Melt was incredibly friendly and accommodating in getting us, what I felt was, the best seat in the house. Sure, the full moon didn't hurt their cause, but the food was incredible, as well. Great appetizers, delicious entrees, beautifully prepared and finished with a couple innovative cocktails and a bottle of wine. I definitely recommend.

    Ambience is elegant, wonderful for a quiet dinner and conducive to dinner conversation. The lack of huge TVs makes for a dining experience the way it's meant to be...just great food, great company, and great conversation! It was a very enjoyable evening! The food was fantastic and served by extremely attentive and pleasant people. Hats off to a terrific restaurant!

    Dined on 8/2/2014
    Everything was great except the lack of a dress code. The food and service were excellent as was the attention to detail. We even received a free glass of champagne and a dessert for our anniversary. But, people walking around and sitting close to us in tee shirts, denim cut of shorts and flip flops, really did not cut it. This is not a MacDonalds or Burger King. If people can afford to eat at the Melt they should at least have enough respect to dress properly. I would never see those type of outfits at Grill 3501, so why should I see it here. Again, that is my only complaint, lack of a dress code everything else was top shelf.

    Our first time at Melt was a great experience for food & drink (the Bees Knees Martini was fabulous) but the service left much to be desired. Our waiter was great in the beginning but once dinner was served he disappeared. We had to find a manager to give our dessert order to and of course complain about our waiter. We opted to give Melt a second chance. AND as luck would have it, we had the same waiter from our first visit. We figured that he would be mindful of his service to our table since he knew of our complaint on our last visit. Unfortunately the same exact thing happened. Great service in the beginning but once dinner was served, he was no where to be found. We had to find a manager AGAIN! This time, no dessert, just the check.

    We had a late lunch today a Melt for the first time in while. My wife and I were very pleased with the spaghetti and meatballs and ravioli paired with the mixed and caesar side salads. Well worth the price and portions were large for lunch, too. This is one of the few places in the Lehigh Valley that reminds us of the great restaurants in Las Vegas. We will return for sure.

    The decor was beautiful, the lounge was comfy, the staff was accommodating and pleasant and every items on our table was delicious. The portion sizes were perfect. Only downfall is that the ambiance, although romantic, was a bit too dark when trying to read the menu. For those who wear glasses you'll need to use the flash light on your phone. But once we got past that it was awesome.

    We ate on the patio and it was very nice there. Service was quick friendly and efficient. There were many varieties of food to chose from and the Italian food was excellent and the quantity was very good as well. We were unable to eat it all so they packaged up very very nicely making it easy to bring home. We plan to return to try out some of their other delicacies very soon.

    I came to melt for the first time last week to celebrate my birthday. I had dinner first in a very romantic setting with my boyfriend. On a side note, I am gluten free, and the server and chefs accommodated to my dietary needs very well! They have gluten free pasta and are able to make other things GF too. They even brought out a gluten free birthday dessert with a candle in it! So sweet! We then met up with several of my friends and went to the level 3 rooftop bar. Both settings were beautiful! My friends and I had an amazing time, with the help of Kelly, that is. I hadn't made any reservations for a table or cabana.. However Kelly was able to accommodate(again) my requests profoundly! Drinks, food, staff, atmosphere, etc = five thumbs up
