My wife and I found the food to be excellent. Our waiter had a friendly, charming demeanor, and everything we ordered was served promptly, with a small wait between each service. The only thing we found odd was that the waiters were also bussing tables while taking orders and serving food. The atmosphere inside was pleasant, and had a diverse mix of families, date night, and general dining patrons.

If you like crepes then this is the place for you. There were other choices on the menu but the majority of the choices were for savory crepes (as a meal) and desert crepes. Everything was delicious but I would have preferred more meal non-crepe based choices. The service was excellent!

One of the worst nights ever. My appetizer was a complete disappointment! Escargot overly seasoned with parsley.
I ordered the lamb chop medium rare they were grey to barely pink. The waitress tried but they didn’t charge us for our main course and we left. Very disappointing. Especially now when it so hard .to get a reservation on a Saturday night.

Our 1st visit. Very accommodating front-desk staff. Lovely table inside. Charming place. Music could have been a lot better (it wasn't French). Fabulous food--our group of 4 enjoyed oysters, escargot, French onion soup and salad; entrees were bison ribs, lamb, risotto and salmon. Good warm sourdough bread, and also good wine at decent prices. We did not have dessert. The weak link was the waiter. He was OK, but didn't keep us well informed, and he turned noticeably surly for some reason at the end of the evening. Also, altho' it was nice to NOT be rushed, our dinner took 2 hrs., which was about 30 minutes too long. Street parking was available after 20 minutes of driving around, a strong negative. The good news is that parking meters don't charge after 7 p.m.

Overall, a very pleasant dining experience. Our waiter was knowledgeable, friendly, and efficient. The menu was not extensive but it did have a variety of options such that most people would certainly be able to find something they like. It could benefit from a few more vegetarian options. The wine list was longer than my attention span. The quality of the food was excellent and the portion size was just right. I would certainly recommend this restaurant to a friend.

This was our third time in and we were so disappointed the service was terrible compared to three months ago. We were rushed and they didn’t even bother to show us a desert menu. It will be a while before we return.

Dinner was lovely! We dined with friends on a Sunday in the very traditionally French atmosphere of La Merise. We had a variety of starters -- the mussels, fois gras, house salad and pate -- all were absolutely delicious! As I have a gluten allergy, our server brought out some lovely gluten free bread to accompany our starters. For entrees, we had the double lamb chops and the Tuna Nicoise, both excellent! An added delight was our bottle of Sancerre which was 1/2 price -- all wines 1/2 price on Sunday! A perfect night. Really looking forward to going back!

I loved loved loved it the first time so I brought my Swiss husband and foodie children. We sat and waited for over an hour for our food. My son in law said they were the best mussels he ever had. We will be back. so many other things we saw on the menu we’re excited to try. It was just a bad day for service, unfortunately.

I was visiting from California and La Merise was recommended as a great place for brunch. I was meeting cousins for the first time and I wanted everything to be nice.
It got very busy, but we didn’t feel rushed. We all had a very nice time. The food was delicious!

We realize times like these require patience. The service was very slow. The kitchen must have been backed up. My husband had crab asparagus bisque that was just ok. It was puréed asparagus with crab sprinkled on top. His veal chop was dried out. I had the steak frites. The steak was cooked perfectly but I had a hard time cutting and chewing it. This is the 1st time we were ever disappointed in our meal at Le Merise.
