    The food was amazing. We got escargot and the chicken pate for apps which were delicious, and then got the lamb and the beef bourginon and they were both so good. The server was attentive and sweet. All around great experience, will definitely be back!

    It was our second time at La Merise and was as enjoyable as the first. For my wife's father and his wife it was their first visit and they thoroughly enjoyed it. The food was great as was the service and overall experience. Highly recommend.

    As always, the food at La Merise was excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed our meal. We started,as we always do, with the mussels in cream sauce. They were delicious and the portion was quite generous. I have had mussels at many restaurants in the Denver Metro area and judge La Merise’s to be the best! Our entrees, the trout and the chicken croquettes, were delicious. Finally our server and all of the other staff were great and made our dining experience even more enjoyable. Thanks to all for an enjoyable evening.

    Lunch was delicious, as usual! I had the avocado crab salad which is my all time favorite. The portion was very generous and very fresh. On the side was a light and wonderful salad. My husband had the Reuben. He loved it. There was plenty of corned beef and the cheese oozed out of the sandwich. Of course, there were plenty of excellent French fries. The waitress was attentive and knew the menu and ingredients well. We had a lovely lunch. We left very happy.

    A beautiful place to have a quiet romantic brunch. With many options, amazing fresh orange juice and the best service a girl could ask for. The food was perfect, timing of service couldn't be better. Bathrooms neat and clean without being overly scented.

    We had a fabulous Valentines dinner at La Merise. It's a very cozy restaurant. The staff is attentive but doesn't rush you. Elizabeth was delightful. The beet salad and Gorgonzola salad were beautiful and delicious. As was the pâté maison. The star of the evening was the beef bourguignon. Tender beef with a gorgeous, rich, flavorful demi glace. Most dishes on the menu were, or could be prepared, gluten free. The entire experience was pleasant, perfectly timed, and absolutely enjoyable.

    Despite dining here on Valentine’s Day, service was prompt, the dining room was quiet enough to have a conversation and the food was superb. We tried several items from the specials menu and mixed in others from the regular menu. The oysters were a nice mix of east coast varietals, salads were nicely plated and quite fresh and our fish entrees were both delicious. It was a lovely romantic weeknight dinner and we definitely will be back.

    Went for a Valentine's Day lunch. The place was moderately busy but we were sat right away. However, the server was not on top of things I guess. It took awhile to order a drink (we waited and waited for the server to come back after the initial welcome to the restaurant and have you dined with us before checkin) and when the drinks arrived we enjoyed them. But once we ordered our food it took a really long time for my starter (soup) to arrive. Finished the drinks and finished the soup. Waitress was MIA. It was so long that another employee came by and asked us if we wanted another round and if we were waiting for entrees (yes, we are waiting for our food!). My husband ordered another drink and finished that one then our entrees (crepes) finally arrived. At that point it was around 1:50 in the afternoon and most other patrons had gone (we arrived at 1). Food was delish, but service was slow. Luckily we were not in a hurry.

    Le Merise is a Cherry Creek gem! The menu is extenstive and every entree we have ever ordered has been excellent. The ambiance is wonderful-- a real throw-back to a quaint French restaurant in a Parisian suburb. We've always had exceptional service and have experienced some of our very best dining memoires there. Just lovely and cozy!

    We enjoyed another fabulous meal at La Merise. The beef bourguignon may be the best we've ever had! The flavors - OMG! Also we shared the mussels appetizer, which is always yummy. We weren't able to get our favorite server; the other server was OK. In her defense they were SUPER busy. We always like seeing good restaurants being recognized & appreciated.

    Celebrated a 90th birthday here with brunch. First off - the pancakes are amazing. Truly. If you're thinking of ordering the pancakes, just do it. The service was great: three of us arrived a little early and our server kept us well stocked up on coffee and bread while we waited for everyone else. By the way, I'm not often a fan of restaurant coffee, but theirs was full and robust. Here's a run-down on the other meals: 2 people ordered Breakfast Pancakes - they were the hit of the entire table. If I could have re-ordered after tasting them, I would have. Comes with whipped cream, syrup, and jam - all on the side. 3 people had the Crepe Florentine. Word from all that it was delicious. On all the plates, the bacon was very crispy (just the way I like it). Same with the bacon on the pancake plates. Nothing worse than limp bacon... 1 person ordered the Chef's Omelette - this lucky person also got the hash browns. Which were so good, I ordered a side of them for myself after tasting his. 1 person ordered Eggs Benedict - perfectly cooked poached eggs (runny yolk, whites fully cooked), and plenty of Ham. I ordered the Crab Benedict Crepe. It was the only one that was slightly disappointing. Full disclosure: it comes with a creamy garlic tomato wine sauce, and I asked to substitute hollandaise. The was probably a mistake, because the overall dish was a little bland. There was as TON of crab meat on it and the eggs were perfectly cooked - but it needed a little more flavor overall. If the hollandaise had more lemon that might have helped. Or - just don't ask for a different sauce on top. After mentioning this to my husband, he pointed out that my sister had asked for a recommendation between the Crepe Florentine and the Crab Benedict Crepe, and the waiter steered her toward the Crepe Florentine. I missed that conversation, or I might have gone with my second choice. All around, great food, great service, and a fun time!

    Haven't had steak au poivre for years. My partner had lamb chops - again - had not ordered for years. Wow. We could not have been happier - expertly cooked and dang tasty! Sat at the bar and chatted, watched the NFL playoff game, and indulged in the food. Perfect!
