      • I went to the X Melting Pot on Sunset last night. Service was slower than usual and they charge almost double for the food now, everything is ala carte and there is so much less food than you used to get. I thought restaurants tried to attract people during rough economic times? I have been going every 3 - 6 months for the last 15 years but I am so disappointed I don't think I will ever go back.
      • @themeltingpot RUINED my Valentine's day! Was my favorite restaurant but now won't go to @themeltingpot again!! Sad and angry.

        • Do they have a perceived level of high authority?
        • Do they regularly post about a topic related to your company or brand?
