We love going to Mere Bulles for brunch on Sunday. It is a little different with covid restrictions. We'll wait until things are back to normal before we go back again.

Have been going for years here. Went to brunch yesterday, what a disappointment. They really need fresh paint and some deep cleaning. Why that was not done during the slow time. The Caesar salad was sloppy like soup and wilted. Sausage was shriveled up and over cooked. Bacon was burnt. Gravy was horrible made out of a bag or made without care. It tasted like paste, not pepper or sausage try harder. The artichoke chicken was so thick the server couldn't even get a spoonful of sauce. The prime rib was good and seasoned well. My over medium eggs were over easy but were fine. My wife's omelette was huge when she asked for small. The flavor was good on the eggs. My wife also ordered a waffle. well our server was not very good and not a asset to the restaurant. brought the check and the waffle came 10 minutes after we were done eating. We have eaten there 30 times and this visit tells me not to return.

Hi Jay, I am so sorry you had that experience with us! As you know, that is absolutely not our standard - for cleanliness, food or service. I am glad to hear the prime rib was still a standout for you and that a couple of other dishes were to your liking. We would like to speak with you further about your visit as we would love to have you back in and try again. What's a good email or phone number to reach you? Our manager, Laurel, wants to get in touch!

The food and service was phenomenal. My parents are retiring and looking at the area, and we decided to bring them here. Our only complaint was the temperature (frigid, and neighboring tables complained, too) but the manager came over and turned on the fireplace for us which helped. Otherwise, everything is exceptional as always.

Hi Natalie, Thank you so much for your review! We can't get enough of the fireplace, it's our most requested seating area - I'm so glad we were able to turn it on and warm you and your folks up! Brentwood is a lovely little city, we hope they end up moving here and we see you all again soon!

The she crab bisque was excellent, but the crab cake had too much filler for a restaurant of this level. The fish of the day was good but not outstanding. Service was pleasant but slow. Sitting outside on a great weather was nice.

Let me tell you about my worst Marriage Anniversary celebration ever. Thanks to Mere Bulles restaurant! Cringe
I made a reservation for Mere Bulles because I thought we will have an amazing experience at this "upscale restaurant" I was wrong.
Service needs a lot of work. We got to our table, ordered, and then we wait for our drink and food to come in more than 15 minutes. It was loud and dark. The dining room was filled with beautiful oil paintings and a fireplace and the music choice of this restaurant was TECHNO. Lol but I'm not kidding. Very appropriate. (no).
We had a private ballroom dancing class scheduled followed by the restaurant to complete our beautiful Anniversary celebration. So after we waited more than 15 minutes my husband decided to go and ask them to please provide the service a little bit faster. In the beginning, we stated what starters and entrees we want in which order. They brought us ALL the food at the same time. And then our server brought us a check, slap it on the table, and said "by the way, no rush at all but do you want any dessert?" Once again, we made a reservation and stated that we are celebrating our ANNIVERSARY. Do you think we want dessert? And it's not about dessert at all. How would you feel, if you would wait for more than 15 minutes, then all your food arrives at the same time with the check and your waitress said to you: "no pressure, here's your check but do you want any dessert?" That was so rude. If I would want to have a "diner" experience I would choose a Waffle House. Because that's how the service feels in Mere Bulles. I was in tears. Never again I will go to this restaurant. Thanks for our unforgettable Anniversary.

Celebrating Easter plus birthday. Waitress told us she was new but she was very pleasant and attentive. Food came out quickly and was cooked perfectly ( i thought my 8oz filet looked closer to the 6oz). You can’t beat 1/2 price wine and the free desert for the birthday girl was a nice touch. Overall a great experience

Went with our daughter for a special dinner. We found the appetizers were delicious (crab cake and pesto bruschetta). The main meals were average at best. We had two filets and the short ribs. The green beans were very mushy and steak was simply ok. Really nothing special. Probably will not return.

Our server Bill aka Woody was amazing!! My kids loved him and even asked to take a photo with him. He might have been our favorite server ever!!!! Everyone there was so beyond kind and fantastic. The calamari was the best I’ve ever had. The artichokes were very good. I got prime rib with the blue cheese and brussel sprouts. Holy cow! So good! My kids ate all their mac n cheese and fish tacos. Might be our new fav restaurant. Too bad it’s 7 hours from home or we would be regulars.
