    We love La Merise! We stop by maybe once a month. The menu is a bit more extensive than their sister restaurant, Bon Ami, and the food is just as good. My wife usually opts for the trout and I for the Beef bourguignon. but this trip we had the seafood salad and the crab salad and they were wonderful. I always get the beet salad as a starter when it is available and it always starts the meal off right. One of our favorite places in Denver. Some days, street parking can be an issue but there is a parking garage right next door.

    When I worked in Cherry Creek, I was one of the first people to discover Le Merise and the 2 ladies who created this traditional bistro with a marvelous atmosphere and consistent delicious food. I had many client lunches there until 2016 retirement. My wife a Francophile has been a big fan all along. Our friends the Robinsons are also big fans but we have not been in for a year. We had a great meal and fine service - so glad to see there has been no let up in the quality product .

    We always enjoy dining at La Merise and are so glad they survived Covid closures! The staff remains attentive, friendly, and accommodating...and the give you space to enjoy your meal without feeling rushed to leave. The quality, value, and portion sizes of the food - from appetizers and salads to main courses - are spot on. And the wine list fits perfectly with the quality and variety of entrees. We highly recommend the mussels with white wine sauce! While La Merise may not be considered a "trendy" or "hip" restaurant, it's for the better. La Merise are reliable and consistent, and have certainly outlasted many in Cherry Creek North. We highly recommend!

    My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at La Merise. The space is cozy and comfortable, simple elegance. Our server, Sergio, was warm, friendly, attentive, and generally very pleasant and helpful. The menu is varied, and though there’s no kids’ menu, both of our elementary aged children found dishes they liked. The baguette was delicious, food arrived in a reasonable amount of time. Salads were generous, colorful, and fresh. The chicken croquettes were flavorful without being too rich/heavy. The potato soup was simply delicious. Don’t miss the dessert crepes! We tried the Nutella crepe (what our daughter would allow us to sample ;) ), and it was perfect—creme anglaise was just right. Our son had assorted sorbets, and the lemon, in particular, was so refreshing. My husband and I sipped decaf lattes. It’s easy to overdo French-style food, but this meal was beautifully balanced. In all, a WONDERFUL experience, start to finish.

    Haven't been to lunch here in a few months. It was fab - lots of choices for all the picky eaters we had in our party. Even tho smoking hot outside, we sat on the outdoor patio under the umbrellas and were totally comfortable. Server was happy too - some times in the past the servers were a bit too "European" - not very smile-y and pretty brusque. Love this place!
