Your first introduction to Melange is a fairly long staircase leading from the street to this underground restaurant. I did not see the whole restaurant, but the bar was rather dark. We then went to a private room which probably held about 30 people. The Decour in that room was probably pretty trendy in the 1970s. The walls were truly... More

My wife and I celebrated Valentines day at Melange last night. The service was outstanding and overall the food was very good. We started with the bacon wrapped shrimp, my wife then had the seafood bisque that was a special for the night, I had the beet/goat cheese salad. My wife loved the bisque and I thought the beet combination... More

It is a warm, cozy downstairs restaurant with perfect lighting and noise level. Great bar area with tall tables and tvs if that's for you. We had dinner there the other night and although the waitress was new she did a fine job. The menu has changed a bit but everything we had was wonderful...from the chickpeas to the sushi... More

We dined last night with another couple in honor of my husband's birthday. It was our first visit to Melange. We waited for over ten minutes for a server to attend to our table and twenty before our first cocktail arrived. A restaurant like this makes a good portion on alcohol and they missed it with us. We mentioned to... More

On the waitress' recommendation we ordered the duck nachos. They were delicious. Duck meat on a nacho chip with guacamole and a pickled onion and other ingredients that melted in your mouth with a blend of flavors. Dinner was lamb loin chops with a berry soy sauce, Swiss chard and potatoes. Delicious as well. Salmon on mushroom risotto with wilted... More

There had to have been a change in ownership here because it has changed and not for the better. Their sushi is becoming more and more inconsistent. Some nights they don't even have sushi and have to scramble around to make up for it during their happy hour. And WORST OF ALL? Some of the servers sneak an 18 percent... More

Excellent, interesting, eclectic foods with substitutions welcome. My friends are vegans and vegetarians, and the chef is willing to adapt any dish accordingly, and in many cases the result is even better. This restaurant is easy to miss. There is a sign for it on Main Street, right next door to The Ark. However, you immediately go down stairs; the... More

We have eaten at Melange numerous times and always have a great meal. The sea bass is awesome and drinks really good. We typical get a BOGO, but have not seen any in a while (little spoiled with the BOGO). The bar area is great, tends to cater to a younger crowd later in the evening.

I was our first visit and we had a light dinner in the lounge. It was about 6:30 and we did not have reservations but the lounge offered first come first serve seating and there were several tables available. My friend had their sushi which was 1/2 off during Happy Hour and I had their Duck Nachos. Both dishes were... More
