    The short ribs were extremely tender and flavorful. My wife's prime rib was also delicious. The carrot and chocolate cake are to die for. Probably the best carrot cake I have ever had.

    Awesome table staff service , just like always at Mere Bulles Truly attentive and helpful Wait staff. Took food allergies seriously which was greatly appreciated. The lunch menu, seemed limited. 3 of the four of us had fish tacos. They were ok. Nice amount of fish in each of the two tacos but bland tasting tacos. Thank heavens for the lime to squeeze on a little flavor. Large portion of rice with a few black beans on top. Pretty simple Our forty member of the party ordered a gluten free little sandwich option. I noticed that she ate very, very little of her lunch. Really don’t know what that meant maybe she wasn’t hungry? Although in previous outings for breakfast or lunch she has normally decent appetite. Certainly not a bad lunch . Atmosphere and service were terrific! And highly recommend M B for that!

    Front desk a little disorganized - we sat, then had to be moved. Our server was very nice. Food was good but overpriced. Ambiance was "meh" but we were in a strange room. We didn't get to see the main part of the restaurant, it might have been lovely.

    We were seated in a small room. Noise level very low compared to almost any restaurant and could have been lower if the piped in music had been turned off. Great for the hard of hearing. Waiter was excellent. The food arrived hot and was very good. We would definitely go back.

    We attended brunch for a special occasion. I haven't been for over a year. Overall, I did not feel the price matched the food, this is the first time I felt this way. I I have always felt it was a reasonably priced buffet because the food was outstanding. For the breakfast food- the sausage was overcooked, the patties were dry. The hashbrown casserole was a bit "mushy" Highlights- the omelet station, the blackened mahi. There were some things that I missed, for example, eggs benedict, bagels, danish. The desert bar was lacking. Our server was outstanding. He was attentive and gave great service. I was a little disappointed. It will be awhile before I go back.

    What a great setting for dinner and we found out they do a mega brunch too. They have private dining rooms which would be great for small groups who want that privacy. I had the Shrimp and Grits. Was reluctant to try it by cause Red Pony makes the best. But, since they do the grits different, I gave it a try. WOW! fantastic sauce! Great dish.-----------------

    I was very disappointed in the fish special. Took over 30 minutes from time we ordered til we got the food. The fish was over cooked and the whole serving was quite small for the price of $35! Fish came over what was called a “salad” of quinoa and some chopped up Vegetables but very little of it. Although I asked for no extra salt it tasted like there was no salt on it at all. And no salt on the table. I had to get to work so went ahead and ate some of it and took the rest to my office. The server was very nice and offered free dessert which I also took with me. But that did not make up for a $35 lunch which was not up to Mere Bulles standards.

    Mere Bulls is consistently very good. We have dined there many times over the years and the restaurant just performs very well time and time again. We had guests in from out of state and wanted to treat them to a wonderful meal in a uniquely Southern setting. They thoroughly enjoyed the food and the experience.
