My first attempt to use my groupon voucher was denied because the manager was not there. The young worker did not get the order right and took a 10 minute break while preparing it.

The only downer is that the "owner/manager (?)" berated the young man who was waiting on us telling him he didn't know what he was doing from trying to put our order into the computer to scooping her "correct" amount of gelato. Where she didn't explain things to him, another younger employee did in a much nicer manner. This should not have been done in front of customers. The food is good and reasonably priced.

Food is ok but service is kind of slow and unfriendly when I used Groupon.

You don't get any ice cream for such a high price!

I was disappointed by the level of customer service that I experienced in Melt Cafe and Gelato Bar. The food was certainly decent enough to return and warranted no complaints, but I was not only was I left at the cash register without a greeting for 5 minutes, but when I said hello I was ignored. I'm not sure if it was because I was using a Groupon to pay or that was just common practice there to not greet customers. I would have happily waited if something to this affect would have been said, " I'm short staffed at the moment and need to make this sandwhich, but I'll be right back as soon as I can." This would have made me a returning customer. However, I used the two coupons on separate days (as required) and was met with the same hostility when the coupon was grabbed from my hand. Everyone has a bad day, but two visits of the same experience is not worth the cost of the discount. Some people are better left to manage the back office while allowing others of cheerier dispositions to run the front and interact with customers.

Gelato is great! Service was horrible, they just had one other customer in the restaurant, but the two people that were attending made us feel so unwelcomed. I presented the groupon at the register after picking our gelato, but the cashier was really upset and suggthat we present the groupon before we get served.

Food was tasty & free water a nice touch, but totally lacking in any visual charm. There was nothing about the decor or place itself that seemed special enough to choose Melt over another food place. Service was also fine but not very friendly; even a smile is a good start. As for the Groupon deal, read thoroughly before purchasing and thought two Groupons could be used by two different people from one account if one was a gift. Not bad but sorry I purchased the deals at all!
