So we've narrowed it down to these two for our special occasion and we're leaning towards Melisse but reading the archives on Melisse gives me some pause about going there. There seems to be a history of snooty service, which is what I am trying to avoid.
Our anniversary is a Monday and some of the other places we wanted to go are closed on Mondays. Also one of the negative posts I read on Melisse was specifically about Mondays not being a good time to go because that's usually the chef's day off.
Any further thoughts?
