    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

    Occasionally, a faraway childhood friend and I meet at Melt for a 4-hour lunch. We have been there three times and have always been thrilled with the food, the drinks, the service, the ambience, and the friendly and accommodating welcome. We have even expanded our small group to include others and all have remarked about how much they enjoyed Melt. It is on the fringe of an outdoor shopping center. Parking is convenient. The hustle and bustle of the shoppers is nowhere near the restaurant's entrance. It's beautiful inside. Chic. Trendy. Love it there. I drive about 1.5 hours to get there as does my friend, but we will continue to lunch there.

    The overall service was lacking in many areas but our server was very good and attentive. Notably they didn't realize we were seated we sat there in a dining room that wasn't busy for at 10 minutes before our presence was acknowledged, the dim lighting that made it almost impossible to read the menu, food runners that don't understand the level of service the restaurant is trying to convey (my appetizer and salad were served at the same time and our ala carte side was served prior to the entrees with side plates and an inquiry of can I get you anything else as if that was to be our meal). Food was great but the Tuna Tartar was overdressed, all I could taste was the vinegar and the Rice Pudding was over cooked and underwhelming at best.

    The $29 set menu is great value for Sun-Thursday dining. Great choice of cocktails too. Priced at 9-12 each was a bit pricey. The quality was good and on my visit a notable celebrity was there, Mario Andretti and his family. Service was ok as they had a mix up and took 30 mins to get our drink order in. Otherwise it was great experience.

    Melt has a pretty big hype around it. But when my boyfriend and I went there for our anniversary, I was pretty disappointed, especially since I'd say I'm a bit of a foodie. I didn't find anything special about the food at all. I would much rather go somewhere that is privately owned. For an Italian restaurant, I thought the olive oil was poor and the pasta unimpressive. It was very loud, I could hear all the other groups around me. My sangria was decent and our server and attendants were lovely but that was about it.

Our table was beautiful (it's a beautiful place in general) and we had the whole area to ourselves since it was only 3:00. They even wrote happy birthday on our dessert plates and put candles in it. The prices were well fit for the service and ambience. It was a celebration to remember, thank you!!

    Melt has come a long way. The room was always beautiful but now the food and services is top notch. Melt is as good, actually better, than any top restaurant in New York. The ambience is spectacular, perhaps the most beautiful restaurant I have ever seen. They are always full with diners and a very vibrant bar scene. When they first opened years ago the service was bad and the food was over-priced. George Paxos had turned things around and now everything is perfect, everytime I go there. And as a result, it is now my favorite spot. Melt is THE hot spot in the Lehigh Valley.

    while the food was good at melt, the service was clunky at best. the server had no appreciation for the flow of conversation and just interrupted whenever suited her. the main course made a run out and quick detour back to the kitchen when they noted we all still had our appetizer dishes. and this all happened a night when the restaurant was half empty. i can't imagine how bad it might have been if our server had more than two tables.
