    Two of our group of six split a special of the evening, halibut w/roasted potatoes in a delightful, light sauce. We also split the entree avocado crab salad and a side of crisp, perfectly cooked spinach with garlic. Others ordered Steak au Poivre, the bone-in Veal and lamb chops. Some had Caesar salad sides (beautiful anchovies were provided upon request). There were multiple baskets of delicious French bread. Everyone raved about the fresh, high quality. Our server, Sergio, was great too! A lovely evening in every way. The only drawback was out of La Merise's control: one couple in a group had a hard time finding parking on a early Saturday night.

    I was really looking forward to eating here. I love French cuisine. But I was disappointed. The things that I love about their food - the quality and texture of their sauces, the unique spices and wines that they use to create flavors, and the presentation of the meal were missing. The meal was good, but it was Americanized. I would eat there again, but with a different expectation. I was treated to this meal, so I cannot comment on the value for the dollar spent.

    Nice table in a corner near the back of the restaurant. Was nice for working while enjoying some Sunday champagne, oysters, and tartiflette. An opera cake to finish is off was just perfect. Some loud talking from a nearby table was the only distraction.

    Really enjoyed our dinner at La Merise. Welcoming staff, nice European atmosphere and a wonderful menu. The bread, escargot, steak au poise and red snapper were excellent. Background music was appropriate to the style of the restaurant. DIN level eventually drowned it out as the tables filled, but it was not too loud to enjoy the meal. Will definitely return.

    We normally love this place but last night (Sunday) was a huge disappointment. The place was extremely busy, which is great for them, but too many things were not up to their usual standards and service was severely lacking (and not very friendly or attentive) as a result. We both had the Mahi Mahi special which was overcooked, extremely dry and salty and the mashed potatoes it was served on were equally dry. We planned on ordering dessert but the server took so long in getting back to us to take our order that we simply asked for our check and left. Very disappointing. Also, while not the fault of the restaurant, the new normal for patrons to talk loudly, like they might in their own homes, makes it extremely difficult for others desiring a more quiet, intimate atmosphere in order to carry on their own conversation rather than being drowned out by adjoining tables. Please enjoy you evening out with friends/family, but please be considerate of others.

    I and my lunch date both had a terrible time finding parking. N Cherry Creek is impossible unless you go to one of the few restaurants that have their own parking. Then, even though there were only 5 tables taken in the entire rather large space, we were all crammed together in the small area at the front. Because of this the noise of the diners was terrible; we could hardly hear each other because of the loud diners sitting next to us, practically in our laps. Half of our meals (we had the same thing) were good, the other half mediocre. The chocolate mousse was good, the opera cake very mediocre. Altogether a disappointing and very expensive lunch.

    La Merise is my go-to destination. It offers genuine European atmosphere. The food can only be described as très bien! The staff is from out of the past: focused, devoted, dedicated, knowledgeable and friendly. For business, it highlights your personal success. For movie night, it is where to go after seeing a five-out-of-five film. For dating, it is the final stop before a great night.

    The restaurant has the ambience of a French restaurant like it should! The menu wasn't extensive but had enough interesting choices. We ate there for lunch and it was moderately crowded after noon. Some items on the menu seemed a bit high in price.
