“Average to Poor”
Reviewed September 20, 2012

It may have been good at one time, but I cannot say it was that great. Waiter was brisk, food was over cooked and wine was hugely marked up. Gilbert's Malbec next door in the their wine tasting room $26.00 but $66 in Cafe Melange.

We have past it the last two nights and it has been all but empty perhaps there is some merit to my comments.

“Nice Experience”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

Walked into this restaurant without a reservation and we were treated to a very nice meal in a cozy setting (not a large restaurant). Other reviewers mentioned the cost, but unless you're totally clueless, you know going in that it is going to be more expensive than other destinations. Our food quality was excellent and worth the extra cost for that special occasion. The staff is attentive and eager to please. We enjoyed our evening.

“Restaurant Has Slipped”
Reviewed August 25, 2012

I can no longer recommend this restaurant. The last time we were there it was definitely a below average experience. The dishes we had were not properly executed and the plating was subpar. Gasperetti's might be a better bet.

“The Name says It All”
Reviewed August 17, 2012

Melange or cornucopia of awesome service, food, and WA wine selections. Don't be put off by the small number of tables or other diners; it means you will experience a private dining experience with more personal attention from the wait staff and the chef!

“Great hole in the wall”
Reviewed August 8, 2012

Went here after reading a couple reviews here and on Yelp. Very quaint restaurant, very comfortable. We ended up having the lunch special, which was a crab, red bell pepper and Alfredo personal size pizza with a side salad; was amazing!
