    food was excellent all round except for cheese plate which had a $10 upcharge and was very ordinary - chef/owner is probably the best in Naples - waiters and waitresses are very pleasant but have a tendency to fawn over you and ask you after every bite if everything is ok and then disappear once you have been served the main course - I had to chase them down to get dessert and the check and the restaurant was not all that busy - they need to be better trained to equal the quality of the food - upcharges on top of 3 prix fixe variants are sneaky - $15 on foie gras and $50 on a kind of Japanese steak (Miyusaki (?) - the beef equivalent of the highest grade toro) that is supposed to be better than Kobe -

    A gracious welcome ushered in the first impression of Mereday's. The wait staff introduced themselves and explained the menu very clearly. The first course arrived and we had our first aha moment. Then the second and third course proved the same the dessert was definitely a tada! Thank all of you at Mereday's for a great dining experience.

    My husband and I visited Mereday's while visiting Naples for the weekend. We found it on Open Table and were impressed by the good reviews. We had a superb experience. The service and food were incredible. My mouth is watering thinking about my meal. So yummy and unique! The food is expensive, but well worth it for a special night out.

    The seating procedure was a disaster. Although tables near windows were available, the waitress insisted we take seats on a bench covered with pastic sheeting and with a "view" to the kitchen door. The multi-colour light show reminded us more of the Moulin Rouge than of Maison Troigros, where Mr. Mereday says he spent some time.

    Imaginative highest quality ingredients provide a rich, elegant dining experience. The only downside is lack of parking facilities where the valet parking was full at 7 pm! Other parking facility is small, leaving no choice available . If you are not lucky to find a place, you will have to abandon your dinner plans and go elsewhere.

    We went to Mereday's with skepticism since tasting menus and Naples were thought to be mutually exclusive. While didn't pair wines (it was a school night) we did find some great wines by the glass. Our shrimp and grits might have topped those last raved about in South Carolina and the scallops were so perfectly cooked we couldn't remember the last one's we'd had that compared. The portions were ample: she had a two-course and I had a three-course, both of which include a dessert. We left impressed, full, and humbled thinking the chef had try to fool a naïve Naples audience and been proven wrong. The only thing we could say needed improvement was the décor but the tables with a view see the boats and water, not bad.

    Food was amazing. Server was great. It felt like we had the restaurant to ourselves. Because we did! It was nice and also sad since the food was wonderful and wine pairings good too. Tuesday nights might be slow but a good place like this shouldn't go unnoticed.

    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.

    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.
