Melisse is the OG of the Santa Monica white tablecloth fine dining establishments and serves appropriately fancy French food. And by fancy we mean expensive: a four-course meal here will set you back at least $145 and the tasting menu option will put even more of a dent in your pocket. Despite the seeming stuffiness, the food here is both great and interesting, and the vibe is more fun than you'd expect.
