"Great meal on my first visit there. Had the Carte Blanche option and it was one of the best meals I've ever had. Lived up to the expectations, which is sometimes difficult.
Service was impeccable, attentive but not overbearing. Wine list was fantastic, great recommendations from sommelier (stay French, long list, went with bottle of Chablis and a bottle from Cote Rotie). A very balanced, exciting meal.

"This restaurant well deserves its two star rating and clearly caters to people who enjoy . exquisite food, exquisitely prepared, served by well- informed, but unpretentious staff. Unlike most of LA's restaurants, we were able to enjoy our 4 course dinner without shouting. What a novelty.
Thank you for the elegance.

"It was a BIG birthday for the Mrs., to be shared only with her Brother and Partner and me- we opted for the 10 Course tasting menu- it was fabulous! What creative foods- and flavors. It was beautifully presented by an excellent and attentive staff- yet never overbearing or intrusive. I have heard otherwise, and some reviews complained about lengthy delays between courses. Perhaps it was a night when the restaurant was full or too many arrived at the same time- or a weekend. For us- we came early on a Wed. night, 3 hours later is was 75% occupied- perfect service all night. Its expensive- but for a big occasion, well worth it !"

"Our 20th anniversary dinner at Melisse was all good. The deconstructed grape amuse bouches, amused. The basil brioche was very clever, and the French rolls were á point, with excellent Beurre de Barratte.
The Stonington scallops with perigourdine were nicely sweet, and the truffle crust on the asparagus was as agreeable as it was clever.
Still, we had to go for a fish course, and the lemon-crusted Dover sole was too hard to resist. What a classic presentation, what a tasty dish. Meuniére was superior, boning was well done, little gnocchi were a nice touch.
And then the superb roast chicken, truffle-stuffed and in two services, with the excellent sauce Albufera and the morilles (my favorites) and the potato mousseline.
This was already a lot of food, but since Melisse has a proper chariot de fromages, we had to!
We finished with a souffle of chocolate, and one of tangerine.
We brought a couple of special bottles, but the wine list is quite thoughtfully chosen, and we added some half bottles of Champagne Jose Dhondt and of a very good Savennieres from Baumard, as well as glasses of Quarts de Chaume and Bual. (Corkage is a bit steep at $100 per, but the restaurant kindly forgave the charges.) Kitchen, waitstaff & sommelier were all on their game. Could not have asked for a better celebration! LA is lucky to have a restaurant of the caliber of Melisse.

"Melisse was a very refreshing experience from the usual LA restaurants. The food was unique, fresh, and very tasty. The wine selection was great and our server was very knowledgeable about the ingredients and had a great recommendations. The desserts were just amazing! I did the vegetarian tasting menu and I was delighted that they had great food that I could feel happy about. My friends did the regular tasting menu and they said it was some of the best foods they have ever had. But is it definitely expensive so something to consider..."

"Amazing fare. Knowledgeable staff. Only comments: tempo of service was off. Too fast then delays. Then, wine should not be removed when the bottle is not quite finished! Great experience overall."

"I've eaten at some high-end restaurants, plenty of one and two star Michelin restaurants and Melisse has the best food I’ve ever tasted. My fiancé and I opted for the four course tasting menu and brought our own bottle of wine (they’ll waive the corkage fee if you buy a half bottle from their restaurant). The service and our waiter were also incredible and had great suggestions and descriptions of the food. The food plus the incredible service made this one of the best dining experiences I’ve ever had, if you don’t mind spending some coin (our bill was still $450 before tip), this is a must-do for your list."
