over Night Hawaiian Fish from Hawaii.
All of our seafood are from Hawaii
(overnight shipping), North America, Europe, and South America and only one fish from Japan.
Our North American jumbo sea scallops are hand-picked scallops.
Really good food. A little pricey but good. Very good fish selection
Food was great and the service impeccable. Enjoyed a relaxed atmosphere and attentive owner and waitstaff. A go to restaurant for any occasion!
Always love coming here. The staff is so lovely and always come by to chat. The food is delicious. One of my favorite places to come for luxury seafood in a laid back atmosphere.
Delicious fresh food. Attentive service from dedicated owners.
The hospitality here is wonderful but service is a little slow (they might have been understaffed due to the holiday). The entire staff is passionate about providing fresh, quality food. There are so many amazing selections and the menu is vast...definitely something for everyone.
food was excellent. owner was very personable with terrific story on history of restaurant and new approach.
Fantastic seafood and pasta with great salads and a very nice wine list. Simple but beautiful presentation. Very friendly.
As always warm and excellent service, great wine recommendation and my favorite lobster ravioli!
The over all experience was great! The owner and all his staff were warm and welcoming, food didNOT disappoint, and the value for money was awesome!
We will definitely come back and keep referring this place to our friends
Mele is one of our favorite restaurants in DC. It’s hands down just so good. From the exceptionally warm service to the fantastic dining, it’s an Arlington staple. I’m beyond happy to see Mele doing so well.
The food was good, the service was a bit slow and we think they brought one person in our party the wrong glass of wine. The old fashioneds we ordered were also not very good.
We loved the food and the wide menu at Mele Bistro. Large selection of seafood and the steak au poivre was also delicious. They were able to make the outdoor dining “patio” charming and inviting despite that it was on a parking lot. Service was slow at times but pleasant server. First time there and we plan to go back!
This is one of my favorite restaurants. My boyfriend and I have been coming for years and it never disappoints. The food, ambiance, and service are consistently good. This was the perfect place for us to celebrate my mom's birthday as a family.
Incredible fresh seafood and fish flown I and responsibly sourced. Incredible attention to detail with flavors and presentation. Staff are friendly and inviting.
Hidden gem of Rosslyn!
Besides the fantastic hand made pasta, we love the owner and would miss him if he wasn’t there!
Wonderful food. Wonderful service. Menu for everyone. Friendly owner. Great place.
One of our local favorites. Even though I now live in NYC, love to eat at Mele whenever in town. The owner is charming and the food is always excellent. Love their fresh seafood!!
Food was good. Service was great. The only thing that was bothersome was they had a large dining room area and they insisted on putting everyone right next to each other. There was only 5 tables sat but they were all placed within 5-6 feet of each other with an entire side of the restaurant wide open
A nice little date night spot. Amazing service for the price!
Mele never disappoints. Great food and service.
We spent 2 nights at Mele. I wrote a review from first visit. We like the food, service
and venue so much we returned for our 2nd night in Arlington. Both visits were just
excellent. You will enjoy this bistro very much. We certainly did.
We went from Georgia for a funeral for our Brigadier General family member at Arlington National Cemetery so we stayed nearby. After researching restaurants
with Covid policy, menu choices we liked and the reviews, I made reservations for
Mele. What a wonderful find. The owner and his staff are attentive and the food
was excellent! The lamb serloin was delicious and one of the party had seafood
pasta. To emphasize how pleasant was our experience we returned the next night.
The calamari appetizer was delicious and we remarked delicate and not rubbery.
I am from Athens Georgia known for gourmet dining. I wish this restaurant were
here for me to go often. I highly recommend Mele Bistro.
I LOVE this place. Very intimate and home like setting. The staff are very personable and make you feel like you've known them for years. I will always come back to support this business.
great local spot that looks like it's family owned. the owner Jack tends to his customers.
Love this place. Consistently enjoyable experience from food to ambiance.
Cozy fu my abd friendly. We had oysters from chincoteague which was done of the edd see t I ever had. The lender frank is very proud of the the selection of fish and meat.
Forgot my anniversary instructions
Outstanding food quality and cozy vibes! Perfect for a date night.
Food was good - service was poor - waaay overcrowded for social restrictions! Even people waiting for tables (hovering) not wearing masks. Too close for comfort for me.
Had a great time!
It is a charming Arlington restaurant with an ebullience owner and attentive staff. The food is delicious and moderately priced. The wine list is perfect for the restaurant. I am looking forward to returning as soon as I can.
We were very, very pleased with the entire experience. The food was delicious, the service was great. They went out of their way to make us feel welcome. Everyone in my party decided to return the next evening. We later had to cancel our reservation because of the curfew in DC but I hope to be back soon.
The food was fresh and the wine was good. You could tell nothing was frozen and everything was of high quality. The service was wonderful and everything was reasonably priced for the sheer quality. I would highly recommend Mele to anyone visiting DC/Arlington and the surrounding area.
Everything was amazing. I had the seafood fettuccine and every bit of it was perfectly cooked. I will definitely be dining here again!!!
I had been at Mele 3 years ago with good memories of a great menu, food, service and experience. Should of have repeated the visit long time ago.
Great food on NYE but the service and timeliness of of reservation was very disappointing. We arrived at 7:50 for a 8PM reservation and had to wait outside in the cold until 8:55PM to sit down as there were no tables available. The waiter / manager offered us wine and calamari outside but ended up charging us for the two bottles and appetizer for our group of 6 people. The food here was great but was underwhelmed with the service / accommodations for a very lately seated table we reserved for NYE a month or so prior. Wanted to go back but will likely be trying many other Italian / seafood restaurants before thinking of going back.
The service was very attentive and personal. The food is very fresh, farm to table or fresh catch.. There is a variety of pasta seafood and beef. The dining room is small But there is additional seating outside weather permitting.
This restaurant is a hidden Jewell! Never fails to deliver — great good, great staff!
The wine list was fantastic.... I recommend the red.... the food is wonderful and the ambiance is terrific... this was my first time at Mele and I will definitely go back...!!
