The menu at Bar Melusine changes every single day to take complete advantage of seasonal ingredients. Meals often include oysters in a cucumber and lemon sauce, Manila clams with purple potatoes, smoked leg of lamb and buckwheat crepes filled with smoked ham and camembert. Don't leave without trying the apple butter cake or the canel de Bordeaux with an ounce of dark rum.
Service was attentive yet relaxed. The food was awesome, so were the cocktails. Took my parents, they can’t stop raving about it.
Fantastic service, excellent recommendations, unique menu options, very cool vibe.
Oysters were amazing and varieties were plentiful. Small plates like the frites, peach ricotta crepe, roasted carrots with sheeps cheese and cod cakes were equally as good. Cod cakes could have been a bit bigger for $16.00 for two small cakes. Service was outstanding - we will come back for sure!
Excellent meal and service as always, shared with foodie friends visiting from Tokyo. Wonderful time enjoyed by all.
Great small plate food selection, best time to sample is during one hour happy hour when the fried oysters (4) are $7. The discounts on beverages are minuscule ($1) and the $4 oysters are $3 during HH. The full menu is an interesting read but if you want to order a drink, glass of wine, beer, you must rely on your server to cut through the cute drink copy not to mention a very precious wine list only a sommelier would enjoy (and could interpret). Great smelt dish, very good steak tartare, burger very tasty but almost laughed at the small size, looked like a burger for the children's table. Big flavor though. We'd reorder it at another HH. Pleasant, bright surroundings, Attentive service when we arrived at opening. Hostess very cheerful.
Delicious and unique brunch fare! We shared the salmon rillette, buckwheat crepe with grilled peaches, cod cakes, and croque madame and all were delicious. Plus we had some delicious oysters. Great service, nice ambiance, a great brunch experience!
Our dinner was excellent! Oysters were a highlight, cocktails are pridefully crafted and delicious, and our tapas bites were very enjoyable. Highly recommend!
Everything was wonderful.
We had a great time...excellent food and service...we'll be back!
Amazing service, beautiful atmosphere and delicious food!
This place is a delightful find. The decor is light and airy, and the noise level was reasonable despite the fact that the restaurant was full. All of the flavors were so fresh and interesting. We shared the buckwheat crepe with peaches, the cod cakes, and the octopus. All were fabulous, but I especially liked the crepe. Not cheap, but also didn't feel ripped off. Would love to try their happy hour sometime.
We went for the Monday night Moules-Frites special. $30 for 2 people, plus $20 for a bottle of perfectly drinkable rosé. This is a bargain. We also had delicious cocktails to start, a green salad, and an incredible cherry galette. Good service, we will be back.
We had a wonderful time here! The restaurant is adorable, drinks amazing, and wait staff was kind and friendly! They knew it was our anniversary and went out of their way to make us feel special! We are not from Seattle but will now visit each time we are in town!
We love Bar Melusine and go there often! This time was just not a great experience. They forgot our coffee then never returned to fill it, forgot to bring out the bread and butter that we ordered until we reminded them and finally received it at the end of our meal. The salad that I always order hardly had any bacon and seemed to lack something. The oysters and cod cakes were superb as always. But, having raved about Bar Melusine, we brought friends who were less than impressed. The service is what made the experience so blah. Bummer.
Excellent drinks, food, and service! And such a lovely space!
The food was terrible and it was rather shocking how bad it was, frankly.
Limp old salad greens, slivers of octopus and poorly prepared fried food.
I LOVE Bar Melusine. The staff, the food, the drinks, the vibe...all of it is spot on.
I’m not sure if my first review went through. If so, please ignore this.
Bar Mesuline is my new favorite restaurant! I love the menu especially on Mondays because mussels, fries, and pink wine are on special. The dining room is particularly beautiful in daylight. It shows off the colors and design very well!
Always one of our favorites! Don't miss the cocktail program.
Bar Melusine has such a great casual vibe, servers are attentive and fun but never overbearing. If you want a fantastic drink to be paired with some delicious noshes in a bright, beautiful setting this is your spot!
Delightful and incredible! What an outstanding selection of lovely and unique foods to tickle the palate.
Maddie, our server, was so wonderful!
Very fresh local oysters. The burger is incredible. Best meal in Seattle. Definitely would recommend to others.
The food was sublime!
Direct & informative waitperson, delicious oysters, rich burger, perfectly al dente asparagus, and surprising pot ‘de cream. Highly recommend.
It was great
I would recommend it for drinks and oysters only (before dinner). Our service was slow, drinks came after the appetizer and the portion sizes were so small - even for sharing. Oysters were good and their drink menu looks unique. Atmosphere is cool and décor is fun. Did not like the 20 % gratuity charge for only 2 people! To not have a choice on tipping when the services wasn't that great was frustrating.
Good food and wonderful atmosphere. The service was below what you'd expect. We had three waiters who all were short with us and just wanted to get on with it rather than be helpful. We had to ask to have our table cleared several times. Not a great experience overall because of service.
All was good, constructive feedback: food dishes were small (for the price). If prices are what they are to be, at least would suggest to make guests aware so can anticipate to order more. Amongst our order, we ordered four dishes which we thought we would each eat, and when they arrived, we quickly realized they were more meant to share, and we should order more. Otherwise, had a great time, thanks!
Must try! Service was wonderful and the food outstanding. Believe it or not one of the best things on the menu (and we’ve tried most) is the burger. It is like a slider -you’ll want 2- but fantastic. The lamb pre-sale and the crote madame are great and of course oysters, oysters,oysters! If you have a picky eater don’t be put off. We have one and the burger and fries satisfies allowing the rest of us to play. Enjoy.
Been there a number of times. Always outstanding, this time was no different. A must whether living in or visiting the Seattle area. Fresh oysters are about as legit as it gets. We’ll be back!
Amazing good, beautiful atmosphere and great service. We will definitely be back again!
Bar Melusine remains a favorite restaurant with an excellent selection of raw oysters and seafood.
It was my birthday. When my dessert was brought to the table, they brought a shell with a lit birthday candle. The recommendations were good
Four of us had a great time! Great service and food!
Very delicious oysters and knowledgable staff. We loved the burger as well!
We had some dietary restrictions at our table, an I was disappointed that the staff was not flexible. For example, one person was gluten free and asked for a hamburger patty on a salad. The staff refused. That seemed pretty basic to me. I also had told them it was a birthday before arriving, and they did not acknowledge it. It was disappointing.
Great salmon and oysters!! Wine list pretty good.
aesthetically pleasing space with nice atmosphere that's great for oysters & drinks
