Our second time, thoroughly enjoyed the experience...again. a nice surprise Melt was featuring Sea Bass, which was excellent.

I don't claim to be an expert, but I have lived in 9 states including downtown Chicago, Memphis, Northern Jersey and NYC. Melt is right up there among my favs.

Filet was Wegmans quality at best and over salted. Lobster bisque too tomato-y and ZERO lobster. Pappardelle was was 1/3 undercooked tomato pieces.
Dessert cake was at least a day old.

Our waitress Andrea was polite and super friendly. The service she gave was outstanding always making sure our glasses were full and if we needed anything. The food was delicious, we wanted to keep eating but we were so full. Over all i would definitely recommend and have been recommending this restaurant. 10/10

The ambience at Melt is always outstanding. The building and decor are top rate and seating arrangements allow for private and intimate conversation. Service is attentive without the feeling of being overwhelmed. The food- appetizers to entree is always very good to excellent. The one area that is consistently lacking is the deserts. They are not always tasty nor fresh. If they are brought in from outside, I suggest they seek another source. This is the only area needing attention.

My brother took us to Melt to celebrate my birthday, which we indicated in the reservation. I also received an email saying that I would receive a dessert on my birthday and mentioned it to our waiter. This was totally ignored, which wasn’t the thing that was most upsetting. We brought a bottle of wine that was our favorite but was not on the wine list at Melt. They charged us a $35 corking fee and didn’t even mention how much it would be. We have been to restaurants all around the Country and the highest corking fee we’ve ever had was $20. We all ordered the catch of the day fish and it was terrible. It did not taste fresh and we mentioned it to the waiter. My Sister-in-law couldn’t even eat hers and sent the whole plate back without being touched. I have been a good and frequent customer at Melt for many years. They really dropped the ball on this one. We were dissatisfied and disappointed and I feel bad that I suggested this restaurant to my brother. Melt is no longer my favorite restaurant.

The restaurant ambiance (as always) was pleasant . Surprisingly the food was not as tasty as it has been in the past. My wife LOVES the restaurant so I made the reservation to have dinner with a business colleague and I was a bit surprised. The service was quite good, but we were seated next to a large party which made having a conversation a bit difficult as it was a bit loud.

Melt is usually better than this. We three ordered from the prix-fixed menu; fish a bit dry and uninteresting. Slaw salad just ok. Everything just ok, mediocre.

Overall it was very good but expensive with no sides for what you pay for the entrees. They have such a high mark up it would have been nice to have one side or a salad

Unfortunately the dining experience is not worth the cost. Pasta dishes were drowning in water and bland. Service was abrupt and impersonal. It’s a pretty space but the food is mediocre and the prices are not commensurate with the overall experience.

Our dinner was simple, as we were grabbing a quick bite before a movie, but our server was excellent and took great care of us. The layout and design of the restaurant felt like we were in a high end restaurant in NYC. It was a great experience. Thank you, we will dine at Melt again!

Very disappointed with the management team as we were just being seated and a waitress came walking extremely fast down the isle, bumped into my husband and spoiled the tray of drinks all over me, my coat, purse, top, and jeans. I basically got soaked! The waitress continued on her way. Later she finally came back and said sorry but she still continued practically running up and down the isle.
Someone brought some napkins for me to soak up the alcohol. Then she brought rubbing alcohol to try to get the smell out of everything which was nice.
No other amends were made to compensate for having to dry clean coat etc. Pretty sad!
The manager came later and ask if I was ok, No I wasn’t , I was freezing and smelled like the mixed drink.
Extremely disappointed in that class restaurant to treat repeat guest of the chain that way.

Melt always provides great ambiance, outstanding customer service and inventive, delicious Italian food. The Cioppino was recommended by the server and was spicy, full of perfectly seafood and satisfied on a cold winter night. My husband had the ribeye (Bistecca) and said it was cooked perfectly and the potatoes were a perfect complement. Capprese for appetizer - yummy, fresh and light. Hazelnut cheesecake for dessert for a birthday celebration - decadent, sweet and beautifully presented with Happy Birthday written in chocolate. We go back again and again for all of these reasons. Dinner for 4, with apps and drinks was a treat, but affordable at approx. $65 per person.
