Melvyn's goes back in time to when dining out was an event. Staff in formal wear - maitre'd, captain, waiter, busboy - all service executed with military precision. It's a smaller, dimly lit room that adds an air of romance to a meal. All the...More

Lunch on the patio, such a charming setting. Food was excellent, waiter was very attentive, service was exceptional. I would have loved to have been able to eat there over the dinner hour, lights thru out the trees twinkling must be magical. Highly recommend this...More
