Our first visit and won’t be our last. Very friendly welcome & attentive server. Our food was delicious. Tomato soup & pureed smoked corn soup. Both tasty.
Hubby had the pork shank. It was enormous & delicious. I had the chicken masala, spice was perfect.
We had no space for desserts. Enjoyed a glass of Malbec. Loved the warm interior & great ambience.

Service was very slow today. My meal was very good, but one of my guests was a vegan and there weren't many options for her. She ended up eating a bowl of potato chips. I felt badly.

Nice July night so we sat outside and had a very casual and non rushed dinner. Waiter suggested a really nice Pinot Noir we had not had before and the Wagu tartar was amazing. The scallops and the summer salads with the usual creativity were excellent as well. Once again The Meridian did not disappoint and we left asking we don’t we come here more often?

All of the food was delicious. They need to rename the wedge salad. It's not a wedge. And it's much smaller than a standard wedge salad.

The fried oysters are my go-to appetizer, with just the right amount of batter to ensure the flavor of the oyster remains dominant. Wasn’t crazy about the tang of wedge salad dressing; loved the lamb lollipop, cooked just right with a tinge of red in a mild barbecue style marinade.

A burger for $24 is way too expensive. No one at our table for 4 enjoyed our food. The only thing we liked was our beet salad. Waiter was helpful but still brought the wrong food to one guest.

The waiters were outstanding and very informative and friendly. The food presentation was spectacular and unique: squash blossoms stuffed! Amazing!

I really like the friendly and rich dark wood ambience without the stuffy feeling. It’s a great restaurant that keeps advancing its menu. I’d put it up there with the top downtown restaurants in Indy if not even better

3 met for dinner May 1, 2018, and enjoyed our mealtime on the outdoor patio. Unfortunately the quality of the food matched neither the environment nor expectations. What's happened at Meridian? I began with a cocktail which set a positive tone. Then we shared Nori Asparagus appetizer which, though attractive, lacked any flavor. Bland. My pricey Spring Chicken was good but I would prefer more green peas and less chickpea. Each of us ordered desserts. No raves there. My biscuit with rhubarb and strawberries was dry and generally unattractive. Because I love the atmosphere at Meridian, I may forget this unfortunate experience and try again. If so and if the situation has changed, I will write another review.

Dined here for 10th anniversary. Service was attentive. Realized immediately it was prom season and felt underdressed in biz casual by comparison. Nori-wrapped asparagus appetizer was delectable and smoked corn purée was smooth with just the right balance of bacon. I was mildly disappointed with the prime strip. The strip seasoning was good but ordinary while the asparagus (yes, more) held all the flavor. My wife had the Brussel salad and black bean acara ‪and we agreed the Nori-wrapped asparagus was the highlight for us. Went elsewhere for dessert for unrelated reasons. Would try again.
