We had a most wonderful evening. At first we were sorry we couldn’t sit outside because it had just rained and the furniture was wet. But, because the rain had kept people away, we were able to have a lovely indoor table by the fire side. When the other couple left, we had the area to ourselves. Since it was an anniversary celebration, we really lucked out and had a most special experience. Our server was Jose and he was wonderful. The outdoors patio area on the water and the setting of this restaurant is very special and we hope to go back and enjoy it soon under normal circumstances
We thought we would go back for a quiet dinner with friends. Being early in the season we expected a great meal, unfortunately, the menu was very limited, it was difficult to find an appetizer and an entry. We decided to order one appetizer to share and an entry each. The appetizer came out just barely hot. Our entries were warm at best, and this is from a restaurant with less than 10 people dining that night. We can just imagine what the food will be when they are busy. Shameful, since its such a beautiful spot.
Probably to do it again in the summer around the lake.
Thanksgiving dinner here was an incredible taste treat. We dine out frequently, and I have to say that this experience was one of the best, if not, the best in the entire Coachella Valley. The food was excellent as was the service. Rain kept us indoors, but the ambience was good nonetheless. I guess there's not much to be done about rude diners who raise their voices to be heard over other's, but other than that, the noise level was acceptable. We will go back here again and again. Thank you Melange for a wonderful Thanksgiving.
We have enjoyed Melange in the past but this recent visit was below previous standards. The tables were not ready, the music was too loud, and the service was sub-par. The waiter did not offer menus to the ladies first, he did not serve the ladies first, and the bread was not delivered until we were beginning our main course. This was not on par with the reputation or the cost.
Delightful ambiance, excellent food and attentive wait staff
Been here several times and will continue to return.. it all works!!!! Tnx
Sunday brunch- we had the Blueberry and Strawberry bilntzes with a glass of proseco. The weather was perfect to enjoy the lake. The service was excellent.
The patio is always worth the trip. The menu seemed a bit limited since last year hopefully they expand it as the season progresses.
Walked out after waiting 15 min for our glasses of wine! We were there for lunch on a Thursday Nov 7. There were three of us and we were seated outside on their beautiful patio with two other occupied tables (by the way, they had no food or drink either). They took the wine order from two of us as we waited for the third person. She arrived and after 5 min asked where are the waiters because she wanted to order wine too. No on came out to take anyones order much less to explain why our original wine order had not arrived. So 15 min into waiting with no waiter/waitress in sight, we got up and left. Went to another restaurant with much better service.
Great ambiance and not noisy😊
Food and service were very good, as usual. Love this spot and looking forward to going back more often.
Very disappointed. Beautiful day and looking forward to patio seating and was told the patio was closed. They seated us inside. ordered the hamburger and was too over cooked. By the time the server returned did not want to have it recooked - he did offer. Half-way through the meal people went out to the patio any way and were served. The major draw is the patio sitting overlooking the lake.
Lunch menu is limited-mainly sandwich, flatbread and salad choices. Club sandwich was dry and not very tasteful. Beautiful setting and service was outstanding.
Excellent food, service and views. will definitely recommend this restaurant.
Beautiful location by the lake
Food server very friendly
Food took some time but was good
Bonne nourriture mais trop de produits manquants sur la carte
Dinner on the patio with friends. Very nice atmosphere
Great outdoor dining right on Lake La Quinta. Nice place for Sunday Brunch, a relaxing lunch, or memorable dinner.
Lovely ambiance, delicious food, excellent service.
Great food & service was impeccable
What a gem of a restaurant and location! Best scallops and rib that cut with a fork it was so tender.
Set on Lake La Quinta. Nice music indoors and a large fountain in the lake.
Definitely going back.
Great environment with comedy of errors:
We asked for mineral water and were told only one bottle was chilled.
We asked for the date appetizer and we were told they ran out.
We asked for the grilled octopus and we were told they ran out
We ordered the shrimp and scallop risotto and both plates came out cold. We were told that the heating lamps were not working.
After they remade our entrees they were excellent.
Romantic environment ruined by the service. The restaurant was only 1/4 full. I'm not sure why we had such a bad experience.
Birthday. Fabulous cheesecake!
Was truly great. First time dining here and will definitely go back!!
I love this restaurant, food is great and the venue feels like your own dining room
Our first time at Mélange and it was a fantastic experience for brunch. I had the Avocado toast with chorizo and it was probably the best breakfast I’ve ever had. Wife had two eggs with bacon and the bacon was to die for, slobs with the rest of her order. We will definitely be back for brunch. Can’t wait to try out the outdoor seating and enjoy the view if the lake in the evening
Nice place to relax. Pool is open 24 hours which is a deal breaker.
Amazing view !!!! Food was good really good service and really attentive to needs
This place was amazing, great service, food, and view. We will definitively be back.
Great food and service.
Excellent menu and range in portions. Bacon wrapped dates were divine. But the best was the scallops and prawns on risotto! Definitely will be back...
Amazing Service, attention to detail and great food!
Very nice place to eat. The next time our group get together, hopefully we will be able to sit outside and enjoy the view of the lake. I was very please with the luncheon. Now I'm looking forward to trying your breakfast, dinner, and your Sunday Brunch.
generous portion of fish and good hot bread is about the only good things I can say aboit the foos
Waiter was great guy 100% very nice very friendly
First time for us and what a nice afternoon we had. The atmosphere is wonderful - sat right on the water under a shade so the temperature was fine for a late lunch - not too hot. Our server, Johnni, was delightful - very attentive, friendly, responsive and treated us like we were special. She went out of her way to ensure everything was just right. Our greeter at the desk was also superb in attitude and service. Could not have been a nicer afternoon - we will definitely return.
Melange Restaurant is a sleeper particularly this time of year (summer). We were the only diners, sat lakeside enjoying the fountain. Service was exemplary, food equally as good. Staff friendly and most attentive. Definitely a return is on the list!
Service awful. Not enough help. Waited an hour for food. Waited at least 20 minutes for bread. Basically I won’t recommend or return.
Jose our waiter is the greatest asset to the restaurant! He is the big reason l would return. He was so attentive, and do to our every need. If I was opening a restaurant l would try to steal him away in a minute.
