“Amazing, huge steaks and...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2007

Amazing, huge steaks and very creative presentation. I love the lamb chop and the tagine. The deserts rock the party, too. Meli Melo is hidden away on Madison Ave. in an interstitial neighborhood so it's my go to place when I want to avoid the weekend madness and overbooking.

“Terrible Food!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2007

After seeing the website for this restaurant, we had high hopes. We were extremely disappointed as soon as the first plate of food hit the table. The crab cake appetizer was inedible, every single side dish was bland, dry or overcooked. The only good thing was the meat on the entree, it was adequate. The desserts were even bad, how can you mess up chocolate??? Please don't go, you will be disappointed and end up paying high prices for terrible food.

“Not even close (don't go!)”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2006

The service was poor, waitstaff never asked how the meal was, asked for our drink orders before giving us menu or winelist, finally got the menus after our wine arrived. The food was poor. For instance: I got the hangar steak, which came with shoestring fries AND mashed potatoes. No green vegetable. And the mashed, which my dining partner also got, seemed to be cooked without butter. Suffice it to say they were terrible. Both dishes are prepared to look ostentatious, but were without flavor. Some elements were inedible. The prices are for a fine manhattan restaurant, but the service and food indicate that they are not up to American standards (we were the only Americans in the place). The room IS pretty, but it CANNOT make up for the unpleasant food, the confused service, and prices. Not even close.
