“Very Good Food But Poor Choices For Wine”
Reviewed April 25, 2014

We've eaten many times at Melizana and always get a great meal; the meal however was not as tasty this past week when we went for supper (the garlic chicken breasts were lacking greatly on garlic - very bland tasting). As per other people's reviews, I agree that the establishment is way to dark; they should add provisions for the window blinds to open. The biggest complaint I have is the poor choices of wine; all Mediterranean and nothing from Australia and the USA - although it is a Mediterranean restaurant, I don't see the reason for not having a better variety of wines to include the USA and Australia (the other countries they cater wines for are very different to what we are used to drinking - we have heard the same complaint from many others we know that have eaten at Melizanna.

“Great! ”
Reviewed March 14, 2014 via mobile

As a frequent diner in the city, this is one of my favorites. Everything is good. Always enjoy it although I do find the lighting a little dark and drab but the food and service outshines it!

“Great food Dark Interior”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

The food was great, I just dont sitting in a cave when I eat. The interior is way too dark for me and my family. Depressing. Asked the waitress to open the blinds and she said they were fixed and couldnt be moved. Ugh. Is there a reason you shouldnt see what you are eating? Wont be in a hurry to go back.
