I went last night with two friends. They have a wonderful specialty drink selection as well as craft beers and diverse wines by glass or bottle. My friends were more adventurous than I in the drink department, and they loved everything they got. I had a craft beer recommended by the waiter and he was spot on. The food was... More

Yeah again!! My husband and I have never had anything at meLange that we haven't loved!! With my husbands hectic schedule we are often in a last minute/late night/looking for good food situation and meLange always fits the bill. Their menu is fresh, innovative, and fun! My husband tells me I am a picky eater but I always find at... More

Been there at least 5 times and strongly recommend the chef's tour, the only downside is you have to call in advance. Service is always good and the chef/owner always makes a point of coming out to speak to the patrons

Finally got to experience this quality restaurant last night for a friends birthday. It was a perfect Monday evening for the three of us, quiet & relaxing. The restaurant itself is wonderfully inviting with nice touches of fresh Orchids at every table & cute little tea lights dotted throughout the restaurant. The small staff on hand were very pleasant, attentive... More

I love this place! Food is unique (e.g., rabbit tacos, duck springrolls, ginger crab soup), and the servings are a good size -- not huge, but just right. The service is the friendliest of any place I've ever been. Seriously. Servers are also exceptionally knowledgeable about the food and wine selections. This restaurant is a little hard to find, due... More

My wife and I went late nite after a movie for a lite bite. Everything was so delicious! Our lite bite turned into a not so lite bite because we could not stop ordering small plates, each being as good or better than the last.... Nice drink/wine menu too. Thank you melange, we'll be back.

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
