The Side Room

The Side Room is our room for private parties
Seats up to 32
Available for lunch or dinner

The Side Room is a private area where the cuisine and ambiance reflect the seasons- you may request a special menu or a more traditional party menu. Each evening is individually shaped and has a unique menu representing the ingredients the farmers make available to us that day.

We use only the finest ingredients with a strong emphasis on locally produced, seasonal, and organic foods. This insistence on freshness is not usually found outside of the finest restaurants. Chez Mélange prepares all their foods from scratch.

Open table wa misleading it had open slot for lunch at 12:39, but when we got there, the restruant is closed and we were told it only opens for dinner.
I booked for my friends birthday celebration. So it was very disappointing!!!

This restaurant is an excellent combination of outstanding food, excellent service and reasonable prices. It is a true neighborhood gem. I have been to few restaurants where the staff is more engaged throughout your visit. We were greeted warmly coming through the door and were consistently thanked or otherwise shown appreciation throughout the evening. The staff is very knowledgeable about the items on their menu and more than willing to assist with recommendations on both food and wine. The menu features a broad diversity of options, all done well and the raw bar offerings could not be more fresh. I am not one that typically writes reviews based on a single dining experience, but I have now been to this restaurant 4 times over a period of 6 months and it has consistently delivered an excellent dining experience. I highly recommend that you give it a try - you will not be disappointed.

Disappointed because the reviews gave me high hopes. Service was awful. I asked the waitress if someone called in sick; they did not. Food was good but not great. Ambience was lacking.

This is a wonderful restaurant and certainly one of the best in the South Bay. I love their new seafood menu format and would also note that they have other options for those who want something else. Very friendly, welcoming staff and casual yet smartly sophisticated setting.

The new seafood-focused menu still accommodates carnivores and vegetarians. Wonderful selection of seafood, some of which is rarely available in most establishments. Nice, fairly priced, wine selection. We had moose cake for dessert- outstanding. We understand the great pastry chef once associated with the restaurant has now returned. Nice elegant atmosphere for "grown-ups", not trying to be overly trendy and noisy. Thankfully, most patrons have the good sense to leave their electronic devices where they should be while dining- out of sight.

Although the food and service were good this visit was a bit disappointing. The restaurant is one of my favorites in South Bay and we have been patrons for many years. This time, however, I found the selection limited and significantly increased prices. The quality of food is still good but not exceptional and creative as we learned to expect from this place. Perhaps after the Valentines day the chef took some time off, or we were just unlucky that several dishes we wanted ran out, not sure but the experience was just ok. Hoping this was a one-off experience and will be back in a while to see if it is back to par.

With a new menu with additional seafood and fish dishes, this restaurant is perfect for a pescatarian. Their small plates, veggies, and salads are perfect for 4 or more who want several appetizers to share. In fact, you may want to get 4 or 5 small plates (for 2 people) and make a meal out of them. The service is friendly and wine list is great. Even though there was a music duo playing in the pub in front, we could not hear it in the restaurant in the back. Perfect atmosphere for a special occasion or just a friends' dinner.
