A word from Melao Latin Cuisine
Authentic Columbian cuisine. Choose from a wide variety of regional small plates, great to share with friends! The house special is Parrillada, grilled striploin and chicken breast with yucca and sweet plantain.

Great food served fresh and hot -
one of our party had a shrimp dish with a very ample serving of medium sized shrimp. Arroz con pollo had huge chunks of chicken. Only complaint - not enough plantains on the side! Next time will order an extra side."

Colombian cuisine: unique, tasty,
plentiful. The atmosphere is more like a diner than a restaurant; tables, settings and presentations are very functional. It's also BYOB. But the food itself is a delight, very unusual (I would guess, for someone who's not been to Colombia). All-in-all, an experience worth repeating."

Melao is the best. I cannot
believe the restaurant is empty, the food is fantastic. The flavors are wonderful and it is a nice place to catch up with friends. I recommend it to anyone looking for a reasonably priced dining experience wanting to WOW your taste buds"

Loved Melao. Started with plantain
balls, chorizo, fried plantain and an empanada. Got the pork plate, steak and chicken and the flank steak. Fantastic flavors and be sure not to miss out on the onion and tomato house sauce!! I could not believe there were not more diners in there Saturday night. This place is a hidden gem. I cannot wait to go back! Service was excellent. I really enjoy Latin food. "

Had a delicious and very filling
meal at Melao Latin. Servers were very attentive and service was quick. Loved that they played Spanish music! Place is small, so get in there quick. It's also BYOB!"

Came here for an early NYE dinner
(they were closing at 8pm). Brought our own champagne as it's BYOB and enjoyed a delicious meal. The picture window allowed for a nice view of the snow falling outside on Lincoln Ave."

Very nice little restaurant. Not
fancy, but interesting and good food at an extremely reasonable price. The empanada appetizers were particularly nice. Three of us ate there the other night; two of us split a dish with plenty of food and out the door for $30!"

Really delicious food - churrasco,
arepas, empanadas. And all at great prices! Perfect for lunch or just easy dinner night. Unfortunately we were the only ones dining, so ambiance was quiet. But it's still a beautiful and warm restaurant!"

This was my second visit to the
restaurant and I loved it. The food is outstanding - I had the big steak and it was delish! The staff is super friendly and the ambience was fun."
