We have had take-out from Melizana for over 4 years. I LOVE their Moussaka. I think it is the best in town. During Covid, we ordered take-out and they had to change the Moussaka to an individual portion and it was very overcooked and extremely...thin. Needless to say, I was very disappointed. BUT NOT TO STAY THAT WAY!!! I called them and they told me the problem. I ordered again two weeks later; the Moussaka although not the 100% of the big pan creation was certainly 95% of the pre-Covid. They treated me with respect of my complaint. I think this is the BEST restaurant in town for service and food. Bravo!More

Once a year I come and have Mousakka with a Greek salad. Consistently delicious. Portions are very large. I always take half home. The restaurant also serves Halal dishes.

I have previously been to melizzanas before. The service and food was never an issue. However this time I did the create your own pasta meal since I am vegan now. However I got a tomato, mushroom, and green onion mixed Alfredo pasta. I wait...for it and the first bite I just taste straight up manure. Like the smell of vow manure but in your mouth. So I let our waitress know and she said "oh that's weird I don't get why it would taste like that to YOU". Enunciating the "to you" part. I'm like Uhm yeah I'm not sure either. Could I have it remade? (Mind you I am actually a server myself too so I know how the business works) anyways she comes back and says her manager won't have it remade. I ask her why and she didn't really have an answer and I was like okay I get if it was meat or a very pricey item but I literally got pasta with three vegetables in it. Anyways long story short they wouldn't remake it but asked if I would like anything else which I didn't cause there weren't many options for me anyways. All in all, a very dumb choice on their part since I will never ever go back there if that's how they deal with food complaints.More

First off, there is more than ample parking as it backs on a small mall. The food was fair to excellent and reasonably priced for a specialty restaurant. The service was very good, relatively fast and personable. My wife found her Ceasar salad ordinary but...the rest of us were very satisfied with our meal. I had Lamb slouvlakie and it was very good and a decent portion. I will eat here again when in the city.More

Lovely light meal. Very tasty Greek salad dressing! Delicious complimentary crusty bread with garlic butter. They brought taster size glasses of wine when we could not decide. Service was attentive but not in your face

Stopped here for souvlakia, and was not disappointed. I had the chicken and my husband had pork. Both were perfectly done and still juicy and not dry. They start with warm bread, try not to fill up though. Restaurant is very clean with great atmosphere....Easy parking. Customer service is the best.More

Hugh ceiling open concept with a modern which is both cozy and minimalist. Lighting just right. Menu size is the optimum number of authentically prepared dishes - lots of variety but not so much that you can’t decide 🙂. Moussaka, Greek salads, the chicken and...lamb dishes all taste great. Energetic and bubbly staff in this family owned and operated business. Nice wine list, a local craft beer on tap plus the standard choices.More

The meal was great and the server was really great! The large Greek salad and a lamb kabob times two with a lemon soup and three Greek beers were $79.99 plus tip. Not exactly cheap. I do love the Fix Ale Greek beer though. Overall...it has always been a great meal there.More

Every year for 6 years I have order the Mousaaka. It is excellent every time, The Greek Salad with it, is crisp and seasoned with just the right amount of dressing.
