Amazing food- really, anything on their versatile menu is more than memorable. They also offer a variety of wines and cocktails which are all done to perfection. Do not pass this by!

GNO & looking for unique environment with chef prepared food that won't break the budget! This was IT! Read reviews, but nothing speaks OMG loudly enough. Between 3of US we shared the Pork Steamed Buns & Crispy Duck Springrolls! Extremely flavorful with great edible herbal garnishes. Our entrees were the chicken, cheeseburger, & ribs! We shared each as this is... More

I really liked this place. We started off with two of their many interesting Champagne cocktails. For dinner I had the veal sweetbreads with potato and bacon hash and BBQ sauce ($12). I've never seen sweetbreads on a restaurant menu in the US. I don't know why not; they were delicious. They have other unusual entrees such as rabbit, bone... More

My friend and I had an excellent meal at Melange yesterday evening. The dining room is delightfully decorated. The service, by Lan herself, was outstanding, she is a delightful, low key and wonderful person. We had the trout, sweetbreads, fried calamari, and heirloom tomato salad. The food was excellent, nicely but subtly spiced, only to enhance the dining experience and... More

Started off with cocktails taking recommendations from the attentive servers – "en Vogue" has Lychee Liquor, Elderflower and a Sparkling Riesling, it is quite refreshing, sweet and smooth. Of course I had to try the "Blue Mule" which is their take on a Moscow Mule – Vodka, fresh Lime Juice, Simple Syrup and Ginger Beer plus a fun twist w/Blueberry... More

Though Melange has apparently been around for a while, I inexplicably never had the chance to eat there until now. Fantastic menu, different rooms with very different ambiences from loud and social, to intimate and relaxed. Great sevice too! Sure to be my go to late night spot from now on. Congrats!

Thank you for being a great customer. My cooks will be happy to hear that you enjoyed the cheeseburger. They make everything from the bread to the smoked cheese in house, so I'm sure they will like to hear that their hard work has paid off! More

4 of us went and shared everything. Had a great time. The food was excellent and they kept the orders coming one right after the other. Our first time and we will go back.

We've walked by this restaurant many times and I wish we had ventured in sooner. Fabulous cocktails, tapas and eclectic menu.

My friend and I enjoyed one of the best meals we’ve had in a long time on a Monday evening. We’re both fans of small plates because it’s fun to share dishes, and meLange certainly obliged with some inspired choices. We started with the Ginger Crab Soup (one bowl, two spoons), followed by the Pork Steamed Buns (three buns that... More
