After a very long trip, the hotel was overbooked when I tried to check in. I went to the restaurant to figure out next steps, and my server Sofiane could tell I was out of sorts. He made sure I got something to eat, coffee to drink - he turned my entire day around. Highly recommend a visit.
I can only confirm some of the other reviews listed. Upon my recent stay, I had just arrived from a very long business flight, and very jet-lagged. Having lunch in the Jardenea Restaurant turned into a great pleasure for me. It is a stand alone restaurant that happens to be "in" the Melrose Hotel. The menu is not large, but the quality of the food was astounding, and the attention to service by Sofiane was the rarest of the rare.
He saw that I needed some privacy, and suggested seating away from another party that would be arriving. The food was excellent, the coffee strong as I needed, and he was able to fulfill my needs with a few items off the menu.
This is definitely a restaurant worth coming to even if you are not staying in the Melrose.
I should not slight the staff at the Melrose, however, as they were very prompt and helpful to all the needs of the business traveler. Highest praise!
