This was my first time eating here since it always comes so highly recommended. It won't be on my top favorites to come back to, food is decent but I've had way better.

This meal was booked as a birthday treat for my husband. I booked the fantasmic meal package as having been on previous occasions I know how big the queue can get for the seating at the fantasmic show and I wanted to spend the time in the park not queuing ! I asked the sever for the allergy menu and... More

I last visited this restaurant in 2009 and did not enjoy the expperience. I thought that the food was average and the atmosphere was not much better. I decided on my trip to give this restaurant a 2nd try and I am glad I did, The restaurant seems to have a different feel to it and the food was much... More

My wife and I recently dined again at Mama Melrose's at Hollywood Studios. This has become one of our repeat dining visits when we return to WDW. Our server this time was Christopher. He made the evening more enjoyable. It's Cast Members like him that complements your experience. My wife dined on the Shrimp Campanelle, which she thoroughly enjoyed, and... More

We visited here in 2014 & had an amazing meal. We visited again in 2016 & had an amazing meal again. This time we were with Family & every one enjoyed what the had. For me the calamari was absolutely awesome full of flavour & well cooked. Our server was amazing & we never asked for a re-fill as she... More

Mama Melrose is a really tough restaurant to review. Our family of four ate here to get the Fantasmic tickets which were totally worth it. But it wasn't anywhere near as tasty as the Brown Derby, fun as the Sci-Fi Dine-In, or inexpensive as the Backlot Express. And the food was VERY hit or miss. That said... They start you... More

The food and service itself were great, but my complaint is that, with reservations, we still waited and hour to get our table. We rushed across the park to get there on time and that was unnecessary because we didn't get our table until an hour after our reservation.

I loved there food but hated there seating time. This is because mama melroses had our family/friends waiting for 50 minutes and other families waiting an hour or more ( with reservations )So basically what I am trying to say is if you are going to come to this place don't come at 5 to 630 with a reservation.

I had heard very good things about the restaurant but when we actually visited, it was a little bit of a disappointment. The staff seemed to be a little scatty sometimes and it felt like they were quite inexperienced and didn't quite know what they were doing at times. The food was good, but wasn't up to the standard that... More

We stopped her for a big lunch while at Disney Hollywood Studios. It felt so good to sit down and eat. The food was good and quick service. The spaghetti was a hit with the kids. The service was wonderful with the kids.
