I went to Melba's with my boyfriend to celebrate his birthday. Melba greeted us and sat us at our table. She was very friendly but the service went down hill from there. Our server didn't come to our table until we had been sitting there for 3 minutes. It took 10 minutes after that to get our drink and food orders. We never got refills and our server didn't come back to the table until 20 minutes after we finished eating to ask if we wanted dessert. The food at Melba's is great but the service really needs improvement.

Is on your list of favorite dishes, then don't miss the fried catfish and 3 egg nog waffles at Melba's. The place is small and packed most nights (a sign of a good food spot). Must try the Red Sangria!

Love Melba's but can't believe that I've been here 4 times and 3 out of the four (all during brunch) the same waiter is just so bad at being a waiter. The food is very good here, but the service is going to cause it to lose customers. Must say, the bartender and hostess were fine.

I have been there twice and the food is very good and so are the drinks, and as far as the service it was okay but i felt like my girlfriend and i were being rushed out

I had the misfortune of going to this restaurant for pancakes. They were swimming in frying oil, all shiny. They were very very disgusting. I ordered tea, which meant Lipton in lukewarm water. Before ordering pancakes, I asked for eggs but changed my mind when I found out that they do not have whole wheat toast. What kind of breakfast place only has white bread? My server was nice. The ambiance was stuck up and pretentious. With nothing good to show for it. I live above this place, and I'm never going back.

When we called to make a reservation for Sunday Brunch we were told that was the smart thing to do. But when we arrived (and on time) the hostess told us that our table wasn't available and that they don't take reservations after 12. She then said, she would accommodate us quickly but then proceeded to seat people who arrived after us. After 40 minutes of waiting, she was still making excuses and seating her friends. So we left, hungry and angry.

Melba's is the best "southern" food I've been able to find in Harlem so far. I like that the menu features a healthy spin on common item found at this type of restaurant. All in all the food is good, the service is good, and I have never been disappointed. Very consistent.
