Always amazing. Food never disappoints. Service and staff are impeccable.
Creative dishes and nice presentation on the 10, but not as tasty as I thought. Risotto rice was undercooked.
For an European, Michelin starred restaurants in the USA often seem overvalued in respect to Italian or French standards, but Melisse is worth the two stars. Excellent quality ingredients treated with care and love.
Exceeded expectations. Fantastic dinner in all aspects - fantastic meal, highly-attentive service and beautiful environment.
An exceptional dining experience with every aspect of the meal perfectly executed.
Exceptional food and exceptional service. The only suggestion I have is that they clarify their corkage policy somewhere on their website (I could not find it there, and upon searching on Google, I found a policy that seems outdated; that is, we were still charged a corkage fee of $50 for bringing a bottle, even after ordering one of their finer Burgundy wines).
Everything about our dining experience was fantastic. Everyone we interacted with was kind and helpful and every dish on the menu (as well as the little surprises along the way) was beyond delicious. I'm so happy we chose to go here for our anniversary!
We did the ten course menu and it was fantastic. Food allergies accommodated with care.
My worse experience of restaurant. Hard to digest. Food quality worse:
Melisse offers a dining experience that excites the senses: a chic ambiance, gracious service and delectable menu in the heart of Santa Monica.View Private Dining Details
