Romantic, cozy ambience. Prompt service. High-quality and flavorful (shoutout to the cream of asparagus soup and the salmon puff pastry).

miss going to Paris? go to La Merise it's the next best thing. exceptional friendly service combined with the best French bistro cooking in Denver makes this a compelling spot. Also. the food and wine are fairly reasonable by French standards.

I do love dining here, however the owner (I think) was a little terse with me as the other party was running late. We were out of there in 90 minutes even though she was 15 minutes late. I was on time and found out the person I was meeting got held up right as I sat down. If there is a time restriction for the table, that should be communicated at the outset, not once you've been seated.

We have eaten here many, many times over the years, but the restaurant seemed slammed and the service suffered greatly; we did not see our server for long stretches; wine glasses went empty for long periods, and the staff seemed stressed and ill-tempered, which is not our usual experience. Finally, the patio needs more heaters, please!

I have been coming to La Merise for years with no problem and have had great experiences. However, this time our server was a young lady, inexperienced, and non-caring whom I had seen for the first time. Since we were dining outside, we asked for a heater. We were told one was broken, the other one was for a reserved table!!! So we had to brave the very cool night. So, the restaurant was not prepared for satisfying its customers. Our server wasn’t helpful either. After serving the food, she totally disappeared until I had to go inside and find her for some more bread. This was not a good experience, and I am hoping the restaurant management is smart enough and bring back their reputation to where it was.

We were there for our wedding anniversary. The food overall was very good. The service, not so much. No hostess stand. We were confused how to check in. No employee at the entrance to help. Some other customers seemed confused by this too. Our server was consistent slow with our drinks throughout the entire meal. Food was good and prompt, but bar was slow. I had an empty bottomless mimosas glass at my table and was waiting for her to notice. I look over and see my server busing tables with no guest seated or even waiting for a table. This shouldn’t happen. We didn’t feel like a priority at all. The ambiance was lovely, but the entire restaurant seemed understaffed for brunch. It was busy but not crazy busy.

Lastly, there were no paper towels in the ladies room. I informed our server of this, however when I went to use the bathroom again, still no paper towels.

The food was outstanding and the presentation was beautiful. Although they were very busy our food arrived quickly. The quantity of the food was generous and the quality was excellent. We will definitely make this a place to eat whenever visiting Denver.

Our servers and the pleasant ambience helped make for a very nice dining expererience. And while the food was tasty and attractively served, it did not warrant the price charged.

La Merise always delivers with delicious food and a great atmosphere! We’ve been countless times for breakfast (you HAVE to try the pancakes!) but only recently went for dinner. It was amazing! Everything was exceptionally tasty, and the restaurant is very charming. I cannot recommend La Merise enough!

I am hopeful that Covid has temporarily affected what is normally a great experience. The service was absolutely terrible. We had a reservation, wasn’t that crowded and they sat us within a few minutes then didn’t return for more than 15 minutes while continuing to scurry around us with no acknowledgement. Prosecco was ordered and never delivered. We were told it was sitting behind the bar but she wasn’t allowed to get it herself and the bartender was very protective. That was a new one and it never did arrive.

Food all showed up at once. While the food was okay it wasn’t enjoyable at the same time. One of our guests asked for a take away cup for her hot tea. Server advised she didn’t think they had any but she would check. Last we saw of anyone. Disappointing at best.

We loved this bistro. Great menu and superb service. The food was good, however, everything we had was over salted, with the exception of our salads. The creme brûlée was a nice way to offset all that salt.

I enjoyed lunch there are a couple of weeks ago outdoor. Unfortunately there were no outdoor tables available for evening. However sitting inside was fine. The cocktail menu was festive and elegant, the French onion soup was good but could have been a little richer. The duck A L’orange was minuscule. It was barely a few ounces of duck breast for $31. And a better side than mashed potatoes could have been selected, maybe a risotto, spaghetti squash or something more savory. When asked about the desert of the evening, our server had a difficult time describing whatParisian cake was. He kept saying things were very light with a thin layer of chocolate. We passed. we also had to repeatedly asked to have a water glasses filled. I will, however, give it a third try just because the ambience outdoors is lovely and I hope I can get an outdoor table next time.

As always, this restaurant is a must if you are in North Cherry Creek. The food, presentation, service and wine selections are impeccable. We had reservations at 7:30 and our table was available and ready for our party to enjoy the evening. It's simply magnifique!
