My wife and I celebrated an anniversary and had a wonderful meal and evening. We still don’t quite understand why many chefs are compelled to squeeze lemon over delicate seafood dishes like the grilled octopus appetizer we shared, but it was still quite delicious despite this. Next time we’ll remember to ask for it without lemon.

The main entrees, pappardelles with braised beef and my grilled scallops, were excellent and perfectly cooked. A pleasant surprise was the complimentary milk chocolate cheesecake to celebrate our anniversary - a thoughtful and welcome treat to end the meal.

Our server, Grant, was pleasant and attentive the entire time, which made the whole meal that much more special.

There’s a reason we return here every year after that first meeting for lunch 13 years ago - sentimental reasons aside, the excellent food and fantastic service are something we can always count on at Melt.

I wasn't impressed with the food. My chicken parm was served with a side of buttery garlic sauce topped pasta. This just didn't go well along side of chicken parm with spaghetti sauce on the same plate. While the chicken itself was good, the cheese was barely melted on top. I also found the meatballs to be lacking taste.

Because it was my birthday, I got free pie which was nice; however, they forgot to include it in the bag. 😕

Thanksgiving Dinner Menu. Food was excellent and plentiful. Service, however, left a lot to be desired. Many people seated after us received their drinks, food much faster than we did, and were done with dinner and left the restaurant before our dinner plates were cleaned from the table. Then our wait for the dessert course was very lengthy as well. Our server, Janie was friendly and very nice but was not able to handle her clients tables near as efficiently as the other servers were at adjoining tables

The service was great; your usual. The food was mostly very good, but many of the items were a bit cool (not hot) and the turkey was rather dry and lacked flavor. The turkey-noodle soup was excellent, as was the sausage filling and the mushroom gravy. Desserts were delicious. My pumpkin martini was outstanding. Since I know how difficult it is to tackle a seating like Thanksgiving, I'm inclined to be a bit more understanding of the things that weren't quite up to par. Overall, great job! See you again, soon. :-)

I've been to Melt many times but never for Thanksgiving. Kudos to the chefs and wait staff for a very enjoyable Thanksgiving meal. While the food could have been a tad warmer, the family style presentation was done beautifully and it was delicious. Even though the restaurant was very busy we didn't feel rushed. Very nicely done!

Had a wonderful time on Thanksgiving. Our server was very personable and took the time to chat with us during each serving of our lunch/dinner. The food was delicious and plentiful. Will definitely dine here again on future holidays, if open.

We had the last reservation. You could tell it was not well received by the staff. Somewhat understandable.
Service was as good as could be expected. Food was very good.
I'll go back at a more reasonable hour.

The crab cake was delicious, but the meal went down hill from there. Our Caesar salad came out without dressing. Then the main courses were ok. I had rack of lamb that was smothered in a brown sauce. It was tasty but it didn't seem like quality meat. The veal Bolognese pasta was very soupy, I've never seen it like that.

Nice early dinner at Melt before an early movie. Pleasant evening, low crowds, good service, simple but well plated food selections. I had a nice arugula salad with shrimp and hubby , skewered fish with broccolini. Both satisfying portions, not obnoxious. Price was also not obnoxious, very reasonable. Will definitely return.

I think the food was delicious and it was a lovely night out, but the experience was a little awkward because of our ordering process. We decided to just order entrees and our waiter did not seem too pleased with this decision. It was a lovely restaurant and our waiter was still extremely professional and attendant.
