I cannot lie, this restaurant costs a pretty penny and then some... But it is the most memorable and stunning dinner I have ever had. If you decide to eat here go into it knowing you are going to spend $250+ for only two people and let yourself simply enjoy the food. If you're not a huge foodie and not sure what you should order I highly recommend going with one of the prefixed multi course menus. The food is complex, the ingredients fresh and perfectly cooked, the presentation is beautiful, each dish has so much thought in it down to the smallest detail. No flavor is unplanned and you cannot help but have the highest level of respect for the chef Josiah. Perfection!
wow,I read all the review.. allot of inpatient people. I love this place from the first time I came in. My server was kind helpful and let me not forget the most beautiful flower I have seen. the crapes and salads are delicious too and yes my favorite thing in the restaurant is my server Gem.... lets not mention any names. As I write this bound to NY and eating plane food I really miss my nutella crapes. (OK I also kind of miss her, can you blame a guy). All I can say is the place is most of the time pack so wait your turns and o yes be nice the way you treat people is always the way you get treated.
My 10 year old daughter and I went to Melisse on a whim just before her birthday. I was not dressed appropriately and exhausted. The staff at Melisse made us feel like the most attractive celebrity in the room. My daughter had the best night, tried the duck, and left suggesting that we start a fine dining club! Our wait person helped her with her cutlery and manners and made fine dining a great experience for my child. Could not have been a better experience to teach my daughter to shine in a very grown up and elegant environment and enjoy an amazing meal.
Been here many times....use to be alot better...the manager would recognize you and always give some personal attention....seems to have lost a bit of its touch...the last time I was there, the portion was reduced and service was lacking...I will give it 3 stars, but will probly try it again...the location is right on....
We had our Thanksgiving dinner at Melisse. It was fantastic. The service was attentive, friendly and clearly proud to be part of the experience. In three words, exceeded our expectations!
Excellent food and the best service Iin Los Angeles. Truly a dining experience. Love this place.
Honestly, if this place did not cost and arm and a leg to eat there I would be there every night.
