We went to Melizana for a light dinner after a long drive. The menu is definitely Greek. The service is excellent. The decor is subdued but classy and intimate. I enjoyed an excellent Greek salad with a chicken souvlaki and my friend had a "twisted" spanakopita . Our choices were perfect! Everything on the menu looked tempting and I would... More

Recently had a delicious lunch at the Melizana with three others. I had the pork Pita Wrap which was very good and my friends had other appetizers and salad. Everyone was very pleased with the amount of food and the good taste of it

Only been here once for dinner but it was great. I love the classy and romantic atmosphere. I got the pork souvlaki dinner and it was phenomenal! My boyfriend got the chicken parm and he thought it was very plain unfortunately. We shared the baklava for dessert and it was soo delicious! They also had yummy cocktails. I will definitely...

Had a couple of their valentine specials. Steak and shrimp were excellent and the mushroom risotto is always good. Did not have the bean soup today, settled with beef barley. All in all was another good supper here. All four times I have been there have always been good service and good food. Would recommend.

We took my Mother in Law to Melizana's for her Birthday last week and we loved our experience. The decor is lovely and understated. We had Saganaki (flaming cheese!) and calamari to start - both were excellent! I enjoyed the chicken souvlaki platter, my partner had the pasta special and MIL had the lambchops! We were all very happy with... More

Went to Melizana on short notice with the intent of a nice intimate meal. Was not disappointed. Casual but classy atmosphere, knowledgeable wait staff who handled our table properly. Our meals were prepared and served in just the right manner.

Met some friends for dinner. Reservation had been made for 6 pm on a Saturday night. Reservation would not have been required. Apps, entrees and drinks were served pleasantly by the waitress who answered all inquiries knowledgably. All food items were paced well. No real complaints about food, although I found some items heavy like the spanakopita twisters for example.... More

We drove back into the edge of Thunder Bay from our B&B to try this recommended restaurant. It was worth the drive. Wed were seated quickly in a moderately busy dining room with a nice atmosphere. The waiter asked a few questions of us to determine our interest in the cuisine. He was a big help to us to decide... More

Disinterested owner when a food handling safety issue was brought up. We were served raw chicken with no insight as to the public health risk this posed for the patrons. would advise staying away!
