    They are closed. Do not book a reservation. The reservation will be accepted but this restaurant is closed. When it was open, it was delicious. Unfortunately, it’s closed. Hopefully, they will reopen somewhere else.

    The restaurant was CLOSED when are group arrived. Not for the day or opening later, but permanently CLOSED, with a “We’re Moving” sign on the door. The reservation was repeatedly confirmed, even the day before the scheduled reservation. It was embarrassing and inconvenient, and angered me. I’m not sure how that happened. The owner needs to be banned from further participation in Open Table.

    This restaurant is permanently closed, so I don’t know why I was able to make a reservation on open table for it.

    You can’t use my number ratings, Melba’s wasn’t open. Not sure if they have moved or closed. Hopefully, they have just moved, or closed temporarily.

    My husband and I enjoyed our lunch so very much. Nice choices on the menu and very reasonably priced. The desserts displayed were works of art. We came back after our appointment to each enjoy one: a strawberry tart and pistachio eclair. Delicious. Can't wait to return.

    Staff was very friendly and engaged. I enjoy options of pastries and candy. Wife loved pink rose made out of hard candy. I had eggs benediction with potatoes and avocados Flavors where there if I had to be picky I would say add salt and pepper to potatoes. Definitely be back
