There were 8 of us for a special dinner, and we were well taken care of by a personable and knowledgeable waiter. And every one of us raved about the food we had ordered. Would certainly go to Chez Melange again when I'm in Southern California.

Tired place with drunk waiter would have been tolerable. But bad expensive food is not. Had the lamb - not seasoned and bad cut- with sweet cherry sauce almost inedible given the sweetness. Restaurant needs serious update - bad smell and not all that clean. Companion had a veal dish - over breaded and tasteless - with noodles no seasoning... More

The food was terrible. All 60's style food, so tired . Also it was after the World Cup and our waiter was drunk! Which would not be so bad but he was out of every affordable wine and kept pushing for the very expensive one. Worst meal ever!!!! Don't eat here!

Ate in the Bar Comida part of the restaurant and tried dishes from both menus. Loved the small plates and heirloom, locally-grown veggies - food was inventive and very delicious. Our server was a little distracted but all in all a very nice meal in a convivial atmosphere.

Even though the new location is no longer new and is better, I miss the "old location". The food is still good and the service excellent, however. It is great place for lunch as well as dinner. The fried chicken salad will always be my favorite.

Fir a unique dinner party for friends or business, Chez cannot be beat. Call in advance and ask for oibert Bell head chef and owner to make a chefs choice dinner. You will have something special. Service excellent. Quiet room ambiance fine if not spectacular.

I Really enjoy eating outdoors here. Everything I have had has been very good and tasty. I enjoy taking my friends there and it is in the village for shopping and walking at the beach after.

We went to this restaurant for my daughter's birthday and their Sunday brunch - it seemed to be well rated on another site. The waitress, Kelly, was very helpful. The food was quite good and the presentation reasonably good. The dining room itself is not very special and I think that was what was most disappointing. For a special occasion,... More

This is a nicely decorated and cozily lighted place with very attentive service and great food served in generous portions at very affordable prices. I dined alone but was paid much attention by not only my affable server but the hostess, too, who checked back with me a couple-three times and made conversation. The seafood cart offered lovely jumbo shrimp... More
