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.
I love this place - best seafood selection - can’t wait to go back
What a great place , very busy. Will return soon, loved it
The reviews told us we were in for a treat, and these wonderful folks exceeded all our expectations! The personal and prompt attention (without hovering), the cheerful and helpful suggestions, the outstanding dishes - all made our date night an absolute delight! It couldn’t have been more perfect!
Thank you and count on our personal recommendation!
Lovely room, nice wait staff, good food, ok prices. Able to talk and hear each other. $15 corkage fee.
I love this place! Great food, service and ambiance!
Outstanding food, great selection of local (California) brewed beers. Dessert was a fresh apple tart with heavy whipped cream and espresso, perfect end to a delicious meal. It was very busy when I arrived at 7:15pm for my 7:30pm reservation, plan accordingly.
I was running a little
Bit late from my reservation time but the staff accommodated is no problem. Service
Was really good.
Sensational - best food and service ,made a reservation to go back next week
A very special restaurant. I love the new seafood menu. Lots of choices at very fair prices . The Zarzuela was great
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.
Great meal, beautiful restaurant and incredibly well priced. Perfect!
A wonderful dinner to celebrate Valentine’s Day . I love the array of seafood choices . Dr’s orders no more meat . My new go to
Chez Melange never disappoints us. We enjoyed the escargot, the shrimp, the prime rib, the duck, the chocolate cake, and the pumpkin cheesecake. In addition, their cocktails are outstanding, as well as their service.
Great Valentines evening -well done. The food was delicious. My girlfriend thought I was brilliant for picking Sea Change
The service was good and the foods were not bad. The grilled octopus appetizer was the smallest starter I'd ever seen.
Menu is innovative. I always love to have Gary (our favorite server) surprise me with the entrée.
My wife’s dinner was undercooked and there was a hair in our dessert. At a fine dining restaurant, one doesn’t expect to have these issues happen.
Always phenomenal. Thank you Michael Franks, for serving delicious meals and making occasions special for so many years. The South Bay is lucky to have you. The Sea Change menu is fantastic. ❤️
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.
Lively dinner . The waiter made our evening. Very knowledgeable . Food sensational
The best experience in the South Bay - great food -great service
Lots of options light or hearty. Great for date night and trying each other's selections.
New menu is an improvement over the previous Chez Melange menu. But the food is unremarkable.
Seafood at its best . My wife and I love what they have done . Bright and exciting. Cool oyster bar
Michael Franks is a long time fixture in Redondo Beach. He has consistently updated his fare and kept Chez Melange new and fresh. The new seafood menu is wide ranging with a few items that you may not find elsewhere. It is also nice when the owner is there to make sure you have a great experience. Above all, the food and service were over and above what one finds here in the South Bay.
Great food and service.
The new Sea Change restaurant is an amazing concept. Fresh seafood and vegetables locally sourced in stellar menu selections make for an incredible dinning experience. Very well done Chez!
Love the Sea Change . Great choices, the opah, octopus, cauliflower all good
Another great experience.
Noisy table in the corner or restaurant. So we moved to bar.
Really enjoyed the new seafood menu at Chez Melange’s Sea Change. Great seafood appetizers including the Lobster Roll we shared. The Scallops, Opa & Cod we shared were all excellent.
Best restaurant in the South Bay area. Classic and original, at once. I love this place. Great service, great owners, great food.
I was disappointed that the menu on Open Table showed they had escargots and some french cuisine. I was especially craving for Rack of lamb. Unfortunately, they had changed the menu and offered more seafood. The oysters were good though and we loved our waitress and the service.
Very nice menu for New Years Eve.
Highlights were the Foie Gras, and the roasted quail!
Very generous portions.
Chez Melange and Bouzy are among our favorite restaurants. The menu changes nearly every day!
Excellent NYE dinner. The pre-fixe menu had excellent choices and the food was delicious. The cocktails are always a healthy pour.
Great restaurant, great service
love, love, love! Jazz brunch is our favorite! Wonderful food
Always reliable after all these years. Have changed to emphasis on fish prepared with their usual creativity. Still have some of old favorites.
Our evening at Chez Melange was wonderful. We met with some friends we had not seen in a while. We asked for a quiet table, and receive one. We had excellent service, the food was great, the wine was nicely paired with our meals, and we had a very satisfying carrot cake for desert!
