Having lived in New York City for over 30 years ( dining out frequently) and dining out many times in Paris and Italy last summer my wife and I find MeLange to be one the most eclectic fine dining experiences we have had. The menu is unusual and every course is absolutely delicious, carefully prepared and served with care and... More

I'm only in Sarasota once, maybe twice each year and with every visit I make meLange a priority when dining out. The evolution of their business and concept impresses me every year. The staff and owners obviously work diligently to be creative with not only their dishes but also their cocktail menu & service is ALWAYS of a high caliber.... More

Last night, I arrived at MeLange with 8 other fellow Sarasota Orchestra musicians but almost as soon as we sat down, we were told to leave because we had one too many people in our group; they would not serve parties larger than 8. We were the only customers there and when our visiting conductor asked why we had to... More

The menu is online and after two visits a few weeks ago we feel is very diversified and everything we had was very well executed and mostly very tasty. The continental inspired dishes are not expensively priced for what they are. The portions are moderate so we left feeling satisfied but not bloated. The appetizers, soups and entrees seem the...

We went to dinner on a Saturday evening downtown. The weather has cooled off a little and we wanted to see outside on Main Street. meLange caught our eye as we'd eaten there when it was called Lan. The seating area is a comfortable space with an appropriate number of tables, we didn't feel crowded. But the table was quite... More

This was our third time eating here and as usual it was terrific. The food is prepared with love and it shows in the quality and presentation. Service was low key and professional. Will be back again and again.

We had heard such great things about this place but then were very disappointed. When we walked in there was a very foul odor that smelled like rotten food. Was a little uneasy but decided to stay anyway. Our service was ok but nothing to speak of. The server was very knowledgeable about the menu and told us they are... More

We love this hidden gem, right on Main Street in Sarasota. The small plates are perfect to snack on for late night food cravings. Lan should be on Top Chef, representing Sarasota. We dine out often in downtown, and have been disappointed before by places we love and have seen evolve to popular eateries like Epicure. Then we discovered MeLange,... More

I have walked by this place a gazillion times without noticing it. The Sarasota Herald-Tribune included it in an article titled "Sarasota's Twenty Best-Kept Secrets," so I set out to try it. It was fabulous. The co-owner concocted a cocktail that had won an award last year, and even though I usually stick with wine, I gave it a try,... More
