The menu is very descriptive and makes you want it all! We were a party of 7. The wait staff was very attentive and helpful. I noticed the owner standing to the side as if in anticipation of any diners need. They truly made us feel welcome and that they appreciate their clientele. The food was delicious and prepared to...

We were visitors and our friends took us to this quaint restaurant. We had wonderful service...everyone was so enthusiastic and caring! Two of us had the rack of lamb with pesto...two of my favorite foods. It was wonderful, but, IMHO, the pesto wasn't necessary. Wine recommendations were excellent and they brought out extra glasses so we could taste before ordering.... More

I knew of the "old" Chez Melange, but I had never visited the new location since they established themselves in their new digs 6 years ago. Boy did we miss out!!!! We were celebrating our anniversary and from the reservation process to the moment we were greeted it was just phenomenal. The owner graciously greeted us and took us to... More

Excellent food great presentation in a quiet atmosphere. I visit every couple years and it remains a favorite. From Michael the owner to Christina the hostess to the water ice staff. They are interested in exceeding your expectations and they do. A nice wine list with something for everyone regardless of your price range you will find a great wine... More

We didn't have the burger with the green chile that our friends love here (we tasted theirs and agreed that it was great). Instead, we went for the fish and chips - what a mistake! So disappointed! The fish inside the two large rolls was wet, the coating was overcooked and soggy, the chips were also overcooked, very dark and... More

Delicious Margaritas and small plates and appetizers. Try the bacon croquettes and the cocktail shrimp are massive and delicious. Big thumbs up!

It was getting late, and I was starving when my daughter and son-in-law suggested we go to the “village” to eat. They live in Redondo Beach, Calif., and the village boasts a number of good restaurants. Bouzy Gastropub at Chez Melange on South Catalina Avenue turned out to be especially pleasing….almost enchanting. Attractive and intimate outside seating was available, but... More

We have dined at Chez Melange for many years now, but they consistently amaze me with the warmth of their staff as well as the quality and variety of their food and drink offerings. The menu changes frequently at Chez, reflecting local, seasonal offerings. We enjoyed 2 different types of toast with marvelous cheese and toppings! Entrees are varied to... More

Good food, nice selections. The house Frank and Bell wines were good. The Sweetbreads were great. Almost everything was delicious. You can forget the house salad, it was bland and boring. The Lamb was excellent both with currey and Pesto. The pesto was ok, but the lamb great. Definitely worth another visit. Gary was a great waiter and very efficient.
