I disagree with the review below. To me, Molten is a fantastic place for really special moments where you can pamper yourself with exquisite food and efficient service. Price range a bit high, yes, but you will have to agree when you taste their delicious food and the whole dining experience. Just amazing!!

Sadly we were disappointed. We had tried to get a table a few times last minute but never avail. Assuming popular means good I guess out expectations were high. Inattentive service and the food lacking. We've been spoiled w the likes of Merediths.
