I (Monica) have never personally had a bad meal at Mama Melrose. It didn’t blow me away, per se, but I find the food good enough.

However, Kate recently had a horrible experience there. If you want to read her review, check out her post HERE.

Whether you love Mama Melrose or cannot stand it, you may be interested to hear there are new dishes coming. Perhaps it makes your experience even better! Or, maybe it will entice you try it again.
