Great place for brunch, but the menu could get a revamp..even just having an option for basic breakfast would be welcome. Still, great space, good food, and fun people watching. Great neighborhood pick—just make sure to make a reservation during the weekend!

Very reasonably priced. We ordered the fixed price 2 course special. We had a tortilla soup that came out warm , and had to send back. Everything else was ok. Not the most memorable gastronomic experience but well priced.

This time it wasn't as good as last. The happy hour menu of wine was the same price as regular. The fish was all skin. The lettuce wraps are my favorite.

The food was bland and the service was not that great. The restless too cold and there were too many people walking past us while we were eating. I tried to enjoy myself but definitely didn’t.

Always a fantastic experience at Taste on Melrose. I always appreciate the consistency in phenomenal food and service each and every time I visit. It’s never a let down spot when I have friends and family visiting from out of town, def. A staple! I love the food selection, something to satisfy all visitors with various dietary restrictions and taste preferences.

Delicious food. Nice ambiance. However the waitress was very unavailable. She came over once just to take our orders. We had to leave our table to locate a waiter for water. We had to look for our waitress for our drink orders. We had to look for our waitress for the check. The waitress was essentially unavailable. Poor service. And when we paid the bill she was standing over looking as we wrote the tip. Made for a very uncomfortable situation.

Sat in the back Garden area with my two girlfriends for brunch. Was empty when we arrived at 12N - but filled up pretty quickly. Had the breakfast burrito and basil sangria- both hit the spot.

Lovely, friendly atmosphere. You can actually have a conversation!
Creative menu- very tasty. Waldorf salad. And blackened salmon on soft tortillas- yummy.
Several choices for seating- indoor near bar
Outdoor patio or Atrium
Jost go and see for yourself- Celebrate or quiet twosome
