The server was rude when speaking to us. Slamming her tray down and snapping at us. They held us in the darkest part of the restaurant. Food was undercooked, specifically the pasta. The pasta was gummy and sticky to chew. Wouldn’t recommend again

We were disappointed only because they advertise brunch on Sundays we had made a reservation two weeks prior and they did not notify anyone there would be no brunch on Mother's Day and that's what a lot of people I'm sure we're looking forward to

Took my wife here for Mother’s Day brunch only to be told that there were too many reservations so the brunch was canceled and that they would only be serving meals from their dinner menu. Every table around us all asked the same question “where is the brunch menu?”

Food was good just weird that we had to eat dinner at 11:00 am.

Appetizer and the drinks were excellent. The bread was great. We both ordered the special which was bass. I ate mine but my wife only ate a small portion it was very fishy tasting even with multiple lemons when we got home she fed it to our dog. The complimentary dessert for my wife's birthday was fine. Funny thing is my wife asked the waitress if it was fishy before we ordered and she said no. If we go again staying away from the fish.

We returned after our last visit because we found it so enjoyable and the food very good. The noise level was moderate and after months of quiet it was great to hear people chatting and laughing. We will definitely be making another reservation in the near future.

The over priced food was barely OK. For the prices I expected much better food. The waitress seemed annoyed that we did not want to order immediately. It was 4:30 in the afternoon, what was the rush. If fact, after we asked her to come back after her third time coming over in 5 minutes. She then ignored us for the next 15 minutes. Mind you, the restaurant was essentially empty. For the prices, I would not recommend this establishment.

We LOVE Melt!
Service was phenomenal; a very friendly and attentive young man. Our iced teas and waters never dwindled below the half-full mark; this kid was super. The runners were very professional and knowledgeable, as well!
Burrata? To die for. Fresh, lightly dressed rocket and little toasted breads with it were awesome, and it was beautifully and cleanly plated. That was $15, and well worth it.
Seriously: one of the best apps I've had in, well, a long time.
House made chips? Abundant, nice and crunchy, and almost a little dark: the BEST way to enjoy them, IMHO. Yum.
The sandwiches were plated nicely on fresh, tasty bread...BUT the meatballs and the chicken tasted less wonderful than we remembered, as if maybe they were frozen? The outside of the chicken was beautifully done, but it was on the dry side, and kind of fatty. These ever-so-slightly 'off' elements kept us out of the 'clean plate club' this time, but it certainly won't dissuade us from returning ;)
Oh, and their coffee with the those little biscuits...perfectly strong and a nice finish to the meal. I'd love a cup of it right now!
Let's face it: you can't beat Melt for atmosphere, service, and typically high-quality food. We enjoyed a relaxing meal we overall appreciated very much.
*Other visits have introduced us to the top-notch house-made pastas, flatbreads, salads, and apps creatively presented by Melt which we can heartily and unreservedly recommend!*

Few thoughts come to mind ~ there should be an option for smaller size salads; my Mother & I both had the same dish (capellini with shrimp) and both looked entirely different. Mine had maybe 6 tiny shrimp and a ridiculous amount of 'clumped together' pasta. Hers seemed better though we both commented we were incredibly disappointed in the dishes. Hardly seemed worth the price point!

Attentive service, two outstanding entrees and a fresh, crisp caesar salad. One of the two drinks was truly all ice and at $13.50, we expected a little more. Second drink was spot on. Tiramisu was dried out and not on par with the rest of the meal. Server Jessica was helpful, engaging and a delight. Entrees are overpriced but as I mentioned, excellent. The two are not mutually exclusive. We’ll return without hesitation. Host was robotic and disengaged.
