This is cheaper than a lot of the restaurants in the immediate area but obviously you get what you pay for. Food was very disappointing, crab cakes starter was very overcooked. We both had pasta mains, low quality dried pasta in non descriptive sauces, you could cook better at home. We weren't asked if we were satisfied with despite leaving over half of it. To be honest Service was ok, think they know how bad the food is! this was the only place in NY where tip was automatically added to bill but had to feel sorry for the young waitresses as the food is so poor they probably take what they can get.

Highly experienced owner Bernard has recently renovated this wonderful find and works diligently to keep the menu interesting and the prices fair. Relaxing bar and great menu with excellent wine list. Filet of sole was beautifully presented and done to perfection, but other visits give dishes as simple as grilled chicken caesar salad the same high praise. Complimentary caviar sliders were to die for. Ambiance is wonderful for both group or romantic setting. If I had one place to choose for dinner, this would be the one every time.

I had the cod which was served in a bed of tomatoes, spinach and capers. The fish was very fresh and the sauce delicious. The presentation was pleasing. The service was very courteous. I thought this a charming and very good restaurant in mid-town. Excellent value.

not really interesting. Be aware of the very greasy floor near the restrooms.

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.
