    Great burger

    Awesome burger! The turkey burger is the best I've ever had! Love the bacon and the french fries. Usually a wait even at lunch time and sometimes the host is a bit rude, but believe me, the burgers are worth tolerating any attitude you might get.

    Best Burger on UE

    Simply the best burger on the Upper East side! Bacon could use improving. Great outside seating during the summer!

    Eh..just okay

    J.G.M. came highly recommended - unsure why! My friend ordered the infamous burger and was not impressed by how small it was! Guys - order two! I opted for the grilled chicken sandwich which was greasy and not worth the money. The fries were yummy however. Not sure what all the hype is about.

    Incredible burger

    First the plus... this is the best burger in NYC. Melon is also crowded and overpriced, with mediocre service and very small portions. But man is that burger good.

    A staple of Upper East Side life!

    I see there are some complaints about the prices and portion sizes at melon's, but one thing cannot be disputed - they have one of the best burgers in New York City. Melon's is an Upper East side staple. Its preppy, yuppy et. al. but it's in the middle of one of the richest neighborhoods in the world. It is the rich person's burger joint. But it's enjoyable no matter who you are, and it's def worth it. So go in with the right expectations, and you wil never be disappointed here.

    Try it once, if you have to

    The food is good, but how hard is it really hard to mess up a burger? Especially if you serve it with nothing except the buns and pickles. The portions are tiny and overpriced and the place is overcrowded. It's all hype...

    Not just burgers

    The chopped steak is the best I've ever had. It's an enormous portion and well worth it at 13 dollars I believe.
