Mélange Restaurant & Bar at the Chateau Lake La Quinta
Just beautiful with the freshest of food! We love it here
The view from the terrace was outstanding- extremely pleasant. The portions were very generous- we both took home a lot of leftovers. Overall, a very pleasant lunch.
Birthday evening out with wife
A pleasure having you! Thank you for letting us celebrate with you! Peter Harbur, Chef.
Great service, delicious breakfast, and a lovely view
Thank you for joining us! Peter Harbur, Chef.
Very nice location and great staff. The food is good
Food disappointing. Server tried to cover but I believe they were short handed.
Beautiful place, food was ok, definitely would come back.
Just a perfect evening! Great food, drinks and service.
Thank you for joining us! We hope to see you again soon! Peter Harbur, Chef.
It was such a wonderful surprise when I walked through the doors of Melange to see a serene waterscape overlooking gorgeous homes, boats, ducks, turtles, and scenic panoramic views. Quite the juxtaposition to the desert landscape I had just left. The menu was concise, but not small, with lots of options for varying dietary needs. It was hard to choose because everything looked so delicious! I was there for Sunday brunch, and you couldn't have asked for a better drink menu! Bottomless mimosas of varying flavors and lots of crafted cocktails to choose from. The food was spectacular. Every bite was full of flavor and the dishes were so well put together. I had an egg that was poached to perfection sitting atop my avocado toast featuring pine nuts, sundried tomatoes, peppers, and arugula. The blintzes were the perfect dish to start my brunch experience while I took in the views and enjoyed my pineapple mimosa. Can't wait to go back! Highly recommend to anyone in or visiting the Coachella Valley!
This restaurant has a great setting but the price is completely over priced. Unless you are super rich not worry about your dinner budget then that is fine. but my daughter and I only had one appetizer and one main to share and one cooktail, the bill came to over $150.00 : ( . The food was ok and we ordered the most moderest priced dish as well.
Beautiful patio with great food and drinks. Highly recommend.
Server did not check on the table often enough. The process to order and be served was way too slow. They must have been short staffed ....it is a pandemic! We will try again another time. Location is lovely!
Also, the wine served did not match the year noted in the menu.
Beautiful lake view, delicious food and great service.
The service was very slow. Four of six meals were cold. One burnt. Won’t give back
The setting is fabulous—looking out over the water on a starlit night. Very romantic. Food was well above average, but service was woeful. Have been to the restaurant several times, and assessment of all three factors has not changed. Has lots of potential.
The atmosphere is great. Food is great. But the service is absolutely horrible!! We never even had a Server. The bartender came and helped us and we were there for over two hours. Three of us. Terrible, we will not go back
The atmosphere is wonderful but unfortunately the food is just average. My risotto was chewy but the scallops were perfectly cooked. My husband’s salmon was very good. The Lavender cheesecake was very bland
The service was great, The food was delicious and such a lovely atmosphere. a wonderful place to go for lunch or a special occasion
Great hidden gem for brunch. Good food, great atmosphere. Service is slow and laid back so don't expect to be in any hurry.
This is one of my favorites! Dining by the lake is so peaceful. The menu has many choices and all of them are yummy. It can be a bit difficult to find but worth the trouble.
Enjoyed a lovely breakfast with a friend overlooking the beautiful lake and mountains. Lovely patio dining.
what a fantastic spot !!!!! we went for lunch and had a beautiful view of the lake and mountains.
The salad and Hamburger were delicious and the service was delightful.
It was so nice to feel as they appreciated our business.
Thank you for a wonderful lunch
It is all about the peaceful waterfront location. Staff is friendly but service is soooo slow. Limited food choices and not that great. Our food arrived cold and one of us did not get the dish until we were all done eating. The experience was not worth it.
Our friends had never been to Melange and were very impressed. Overall, the whole evening was great ... we weren't in a hurry ! But the service was very slow ... we ordered a side of bread which the server forgot about, we cancelled it but it came anyway !!! We will returned, just thought you'd want to know.
The food and ambience was wonderful but the service wasn’t so great.
Beautiful surroundings but limited menu, and only kale cesar salad
I,m sorry to say it was an awful experience. It was there 1st night opening from the summer.
I felt sorry for the servers, only 3 and they bartended and served. and it was pretty busy.
The restaurant was not ready for that amount of guests.
A little pricey 34.00 for the 2 scallops 2 shrimp over risotto
Pork chop hard to cut, like cutting into thick cardboard.
Seared Tuna , sent back to cook a little more , came back 20 minutes later.
We were looking forward to coming back , been here many times. too bad..
Great time on the patio. Brunch with friends while enjoying the view of the lake. Thank you to Raquel, for the excellent customer service
Great as always. Took friends who had never been, for brunch. They were very pleased. Next time, back for happy hour.
It was delicious and very reasonably priced
We love this place but there was a wedding going on across the way. Really loud music. We know this is not the restaurants fault but it is an issue FYI. Not sure that they can do anything about it however. Beautiful setting and wonderful staff and food!
The food was truly amazing!!
It was a beautiful night for dinner in the patio overlooking the lake, fountain, and evening lights. The mushroom tart was delicious, as was our split plate of pork chop. The lettuce was a bit tough on our wedge salad, but toppings were delectable. Wine is moderately priced by the glass, and selection decent. It took longer than usual to get a waiter to the table for water and drink orders, but once past that hurdle, service was great.
Windy day so we were unable to sit outside, therefore inside was noisier than usual.
Food was excellent, service a little slow.
We brought 4 new people with us and they loved it and will be back!
Made reservation several days in advance. Upon arrival we were seated right away and given menus, then moved a short distance to a table in the warm sunlight. Waited 10 minutes before receiving our water. (Considering the place was less than half full, this was a surprise). The glasses were dirty and the waiter apologized and brought new ones. Another wait, only to find the menu item (blueberry waffles) my husband wanted was not available. We ordered the lemon cocoanut pancakes and the shrimp omelette, which were very good. While the meal was good and the scenery nice, it’s a long way to drive for the experience.....
Arrived a few minutes before our 7:30 reservation. Manager walked right by us. In 10 minutes we asked a waiter how we could get to our table. Seated and got our beverage order in. Salads took a long time and our diner had not been served by 9:10 so we left. Love the ambiance and dinner in past years but the lack of timely dining experience will kill them. We’ll never be back till we see at least a mediocre review on TripAdvisor. Jeff and friends
I had the halibut I did not think it was that great. My husband had the chicken piccata with mashed potatoes which had no seasoning and the chicken piccata it was dry.
We love going to this restaurant for lunch. The view and ambiance is great. However, had this been our first time at this restaurant, we wouldn’t go back. Very confused wait staff, slow service and food was not provided as we ordered. It was a mess!☹️
We are willing to give it another try. Hope this was a fluke!
MELANGE is a great place to dine.
With beautiful lake views. It can't be beat.
For the 1st time ever tho. I was disappointed that a gratis Birthday cake or dessert wasn't offered to our Birthday celebrant.
In fact, we weren't offered a dessert menu at all.
