                          Bonjour, nous avons passé une excellente soirée. Le service était efficace, attentionné et sympathique. Les plats de l’entrée au dessert étaient tous très bons voire excellents. Le seul petit bémol, que nous n’avons pas mentionné sur le coup, est la petitesse de l’unique patte de pieuvre. 2 petites ou une plus grosse aurait été plus apprécié.

                          C'était la première fois pour moi au Mélisse ! Je viens de Québec et je passais le week-end à Montréal. Je suis allée bruncher avec mes amies, votre adresse fera désormais partie de mes incontournables lors de mes visites dans la ville de Montréal ! Excellente service et la nourriture était vraiment très bonne ! Je recommanderai à mes contacts chaudement ! Encore merci.

                          Not enough servers or kitchen staff/capacity to serve clients adequately. Should consider reducing number of tables if restaurant wants to increase return clients. It took 30-45 minutes before our orders were taken, and anothe 45 minutes before we were served. Much too long for brunch. Hope my feedback is helpful.

                          Loved it the minute I walked in. Wonderful greetings from the owner who is just a pearl! She also made sure we were satisfied when we left. This is a wonderful customer experience that makes me feel appreciated by the patron. The food was excellent and healthy. I will go back on my next trip to Montreal. I am from the Outaouais. Bravo au resto Melisse!

                          Food was not overly notable / memorable. Some people at our table didn't eat half their plates of food because of this. Ambience was beautiful. Wouldn't recommend for breakfast but open to trying dinner menu.

                          Food is really good. The staff is friendly and they know their wine and food menu really well. Some items are bit pricey but it has to do with the price market, they arw the add-on plates on the menu, the inspiration of the day. We took 4 plates for 2 persons for the main course and we were full. Beet salad, falafels, beef tartar and octopus are highly recommand. Their cocktails are also outstanding (Gin with cucumber and zaatar...WoW!). Will go back for sure.
