    Very happy with the experience. Had heard the portions were small so ordered the 4 course fixed price, could easily have been satisfied with 2, 3 tops. Good selection of items from escargot to risotto to filet. Four of us had wide assortment & were all pleased with each selection. Wine pairings may not have been the absolute best selections, but decent & good pours.

    Beautiful presentations, great food, and friendly-efficient service. Scenic setting in the middle of a marina with water on 2 sides. The wine list is eclectic, with relatively high prices. I would have preferred to see a few more recognizable producers to get a point of reference on price. We had the wine pairing for $50, which seemed reasonable. One word of caution, if you are a 1st timer like us. Call them to get instruction of how to get into the garage, especially if there is inclement weather. If I was a local, this would definitely be a place that I would frequent.

    The difference between dining and eating out was defined by our experience on Thursday evening at Mereday's. The food was delicious and presented beautifully. Our waitstaff was very professional. I loved the decor, the colors and textures makes the room feel elegant, comfortable and welcoming. We will be back again soon.

    We're told by some that Mereday's location and prices are not competitive with other 5th Ave establishments. They have a point on the location - not the easiest in or out, a bit confusing once in the underground garage, but a very attractive space and setting once there - but all-in prices are competitive with the best on 5th and beyond (i.e., $$$+), and the food and service excel. We haven't tried them all yet, but the best food we've found in Naples so far. We opted for wine pairings with each course and regretted no choices among the 5 dishes served between us(+dessert) but the escargot and creole shrimp were especially good. Only negative: the cheese plate dessert was lovely but I'm not sure it was worthy of a supplementary charge.

    Meredays is an interesting restaurant. There are rules to dining here and you won't like this place if you hate that. For example, you must have dessert. Originally, they called this a three four or five course menu, but now I believe it is two three or four courses because they have disguised the fact that dessert is a required course by stating it is complementary. So two courses (really three) is $55, and unless you choose to eat at the bar, that is the least you can spend per person even if one of those people is a seven year old. Perhaps because of all these extra rules, Mereday's isn't nearly as busy or crowded as one would expect with the caliber of food offered. Still, the food is stellar overall and the shrimp and grits superb.

    Chef Mereday has created a great dining experience in SWFla. The food is outstanding, young servers attentive and the water-front setting very attractive. Both indoor and outdoor seating options are available. Extensive menu features classis haute cuisine selections (e.g., foie gras) to downhome southern classics (shrimp and cheese grits). Of course this being Florida, the freshest fish is available. Our favorite is still on the menu as they can't take if off: their chicken. For eonophiles the wine list is thankfully not over long, but a well selected spectrum of wines for all tastes. There is a wine pairing option available, too. No bargain 2-fer off-season pricing as here - folks come for fine dining. Yes, Mereday's is that good!

    Wonderful, innovative food. Menu somewhat limiting, but overall a great experience. Service was impeccable although a bit of a tag team with two waiters for 3 diners! Wine list was expensive as can be expected in such a high end restaurant. But wines by the glass allowed us to sample a nice variety of wines. We did not select the food and wine pairing menu. I liked my selections better. Welcoming Maitre D'. I would go back there and would highly recommend it to all.

    Outstanding roasted beets salad, visually very appealing with a superb mixture of flavored textures ! Shrimp dish was powerful in flavor. Dessert was not up to par, with a somewhat dry carrot cake, though flavor was nice. Service was very good with good recommendations by Thomas. Unclear why I was seated at a corner table without a view as the restaurant was essentially empty throught my dinner. Overall very good dining! I would definitely return.

    Exquisite food, and comparable prices. Every dish was distinctive and delicious. It's hard to finish three courses, and then be presented with an incredibly rich dessert. Service was very attentive but not overbearing. I would strongly recommend they scallops and the pappardle carbonara. Personally we did not enjoy the complex in which the restaurant is located but thats a subjective observation

    Our group was excited to try this restaurant after reading the cover story on Charles Mereday in Gulfshore Life Magazine. The food- some of the best we have had in Naples and we eat out A LOT. But the waiter - one of the worst. Inattentive and sarcastic. We had brought a special bottle of wine & he made a flip comment about it, then failed to open it and disappeared. The bartender saw us trying to find him so he came over and opened the wine and went through the menu with us (A Prix Fixe) since our waiter had failed to do that as well. Later when we had ordered another bottle of wine, the waiter told us if we needed more glasses, we could take them from the empty tables around us! We will definitely be back, but will ask for another server.

    By far the best overall dining experience in Naples, FL. From the ease of reservations on Open Table to Madison the waiter and both chefs who prepared all courses of the meal perfectly and with several adjustments due to medical restrictions. Will definitely go again and again. Bar looks nice enough to stop by on a weekend afternoon for food and beverage.

    I found the pricing to be very strange. There are 5 courses on the menu. You pay based upon the number of courses. Courses 1 and 2 are appetizers, course 3 is slightly larger than an appetizer portion, course 4 is a very small entree portion and course 5 is dessert. You get charged based on the number of courses that you have, whether they are an appetizer or entree or dessert. It comes out to $20 for dessert. It seems a little outrageous. The food was excellent but the service was just ok.

    Mereday's is able to combine the best in imaginative and quality food, all in a beautiful, scenic atmosphere with spot on service. Attention to detail is evident in all aspects of this gem of a place. The kitchen is open so you can view the creator-chef Charles Mereday. The menu is eclectic with possibly a lean to French cuisine. The wine list shows a moderate breath of old and new world wines. The desserts, included in your choice of 2, 3 or 4 course selections are fantastic. Also, the quality to cost ratio is excellent. A must for fine dining in Naples.
