Recommend installing gaslight or something outside as restaurant looks closed during daytime hours.

What a delightful surprise this hidden gem was! It took me a few minutes to find the restaurant (lower level on the corner of Clayton and 3rd) but wa so happy when I did. The lunch Crepes were amazingly yummy! And Alex, our server, was very nice and helpful and accommodated our having to rush. Unfortunately we started out, in a hurry so we couldn't enjoy everything slowly and had to be fast so we're now going back soon to enjoy a more leisurely and DELICIOUS lunch!

Was quite pleased until I pointed out that there was a $15.00 price difference between the in restaurant menu wine list and the on-line price. $125.00 vs $110.00. I was willing to accept the price even though most restaurants would probably adjust to website pricing.
It was the owner’s or manager’s attitude that really turned this situation. “Your dining in the restaurant not at the website”
Had we not received this attitude we would have ordered a second bottle and would have returned in the future.

Service was spot on, timing measured between courses. Food was delicious. We started with the foie gras with a spray of lettuce and toasted rounds of bread. My husband and I had the steak frites — we both agreed next time we order medium rare. Our son had the beef bourguignon served over mash potatoes. He enjoyed it immensely. Beef was tender, just as it should be. He finished off his meal with a Nutella crepe with vanilla ice cream. No complaints at all. My husband and I shared a creme brûlée which was smooth and light. The sugar crust was toasted to a light golden crisp.

Comfy French bistro in Cherry Creek. Food was tasty and reasonably priced. Affordable house wines by the glass as well as other glasses and bottles. Service was pleasant but perfunctory.

The food was delicious & the server very nice. This is a small restaurant so a noisy party of 4 can disrupt others, which it did this time. We still love this restaurant!!

I love the food at La Merise and eat eat quite frequently. The food was still wonderful and is very reasonably priced but it took about 40 minutes for the waiter to take our order, which was too long on a week night. Once we ordered the food arrived fairly quickly but that long wait to order was s frustrating.

Overall La Merise is French done well. I have the Lamb Chops, done perfect, with an excellent butter sauce. My wife had classic Beef Bourguinon, well done, with a rich sauce. Bacon Lardons are a nice touch. The only downside is the loudness of the restaurant, just have to deal with it, as it a smaller restaurant. Overall, we enjoyed ourselves, a very solid French restaurant for Denver.

La Merise is our restaurant of choice for birthdays, anniversaries, and just about any other excuse. The wine list is exceptional, especially pertaining to Rhone, Burgundy, and Bordeaux. Prices are very reasonable.

La Merise is my go to brunch spot. I brought a friend along who has never brunched at La Merise, and she regrets never having been before today, as she loved it! Thanks again, La Merise, for a lovely Sunday dining experience with friends!

Fun venue slightly off rush hour for lunch so nice and peaceful. Meals were overall quite good. The only downside was the potato leek soup was very bland. Lunch was filling so we skipped dessert.

Being gluten free, I found only a few items on the menu for me. In many french restaurants I have enjoyed galettes with buckwheat. That would be a wonderful addition to your menu.

So I would have given a full five stars all around - my fisherman’s stew was wonderful but my husband said the beef bourguignon was good but not great. The wine list was outstanding. Service was excellent. I would go again.
