Our Story

At Melrose Steakhouse our philosophy is simple: Treat guests like family, serve great food, and always exceed expectations. 


That philosophy was born in 1957, when Louie Ford and Dennis DeMilio opened their first Steakhouse on Melrose Ave in Los Angeles, CA. From day one, Louie and Dennis shared their commitment to quality and generosity of spirit with every guest who walked through their doors. What began as a restaurant became a legend – a place to not only enjoy an excellent meal but also catch up with old friends, meet new ones, close business deals, and celebrate family milestones.


Still owned and operated by members of the Ford and DeMilio families, Melrose Steakhouse continues to serve as a second home for countless patrons, thanks to the exceptional standard of hospitality established by our founders.
