The new Sea Change restaurant is an amazing concept. Fresh seafood and vegetables locally sourced in stellar menu selections make for an incredible dinning experience. Very well done Chez!

Really enjoyed the new seafood menu at Chez Melange’s Sea Change. Great seafood appetizers including the Lobster Roll we shared. The Scallops, Opa & Cod we shared were all excellent.

I was disappointed that the menu on Open Table showed they had escargots and some french cuisine. I was especially craving for Rack of lamb. Unfortunately, they had changed the menu and offered more seafood. The oysters were good though and we loved our waitress and the service.

Very nice menu for New Years Eve.

Very generous portions.

Chez Melange and Bouzy are among our favorite restaurants. The menu changes nearly every day!

Our evening at Chez Melange was wonderful. We met with some friends we had not seen in a while. We asked for a quiet table, and receive one. We had excellent service, the food was great, the wine was nicely paired with our meals, and we had a very satisfying carrot cake for desert!

Chez Melange is several restaurants in one- and my favorite spot in the South Bay. There is Bouzy pub in the front and Sea Change, the more formal seafood dining in the back. The back bar is also a cozy little spot for cocktails or smaller bites. We ate at Sea Change and we’re treated like royalty by our favorite waiter Gary! I had the monkfish which was buttery and delicious with basmati rice. The menu changes constantly and there is always something new and interesting. The deserts were superb and I can’t wait to go back. Owner Michael is always working hard and greeting his guests. With an owner on premises- it shows great attention to detail. Drew is our favorite bar tender and the whole team is outstanding.

See the change at Sea Change! Formally Chez Melange, Sea Change has made good seafood at affordable prices available in Riviera Village. Finally a place to go for oysters, octopus and a large selection of beautiful fish prepared in an assortment of different cuisines.

Hooray for Sea Change! And of course Bouzy is a must go.

This place is by far the best in the Southbay. Food is amazing, the cocktails and wine list is highly elevated. If your passionate about good food, drinks and service I️ highly recommend Sea Change at Chez Melange. There are 3 great concepts all under one roof. Bouzy’s Gastropub in front for a casual experience, Sea Change in the back for a nicer ambiance and more elevated dishes, and Bar 150 in the very back that offers a beautiful Raw Bar that has an intimate feel with a unique experience to dine with the raw bar Chef. Under Chez Melange’s roof, you can get everything you desire. Highly recommend.

We really enjoyed our lunch. Food and drinks were really good. Loved my “EggSlut” sandwich and the Mimosa flight. We were somewhat taken aback that we were seated way in the back rather than in the front. Kind of isolated and quiet and we were more in a Party mood.

This review is actually for Sea Change, one of 3 restaurants under the Chez Melange umbrella. The dining experience was excellent from start to finish. Artisan bread, super shrimp cocktail with a robust cocktail sauce, tender short rib with accompanying lobster mac&cheese. My wife also enjoyed her Artic Char - all this followed by a delightful apple galette for desert. Server was excellent, knew the menu well and provided wonderful dining recommendations. We’ll definitely be back.
