What the Food Critics are Saying

“Mélisse has distinguished itself as the sole top-end French gastronomic experience in Los Angeles.” – Gayot

“The dishes are artfully presented and innovative but not overly intellectual, and ingredients are always fresh, as [chef Josiah] Citrin takes advantage of southern California’s year-round growing season and frequents local farmers’ markets to find the best produce to soothe those Westside foodies’ ravenous appetites. Five stars.” – Forbes Travel Guide

“Mélisse remains one of the few special-occasion restaurants that feels truly special.” – LA Weekly

From the Chef

“My vision has always been to have a celebratory restaurant where people go to create a memory. We provide a service to make them feel like kings and queens, like it’s the best evening of their lives. It’s an experience that lasts forever.” – Chef Josiah Citrin

Ambience

Modern, elegant, and chic, the setting is a fitting backdrop for the flourish-filled presentations of haute menu offerings, attracting neighborhood diners and distinguished celebrities alike.

On the Side

Mélisse is named after an aromatic, calming Mediterranean herb also known as lemon balm.
