    Our server, Julian, was outstanding. I requested the whipped sweet potato dish to be served separately (it was: a very small portion, in a condiment cup.) There seemed to be a residual sweet sauce from the sweet potatoes remaining though; which, in my opinion, detracted from both the savory duck breast and mashed potatoes upon which it was served (again, would have preferred them to be more separate…) Otherwise, a wonderful dining experience.

    As usual, a great experience, from the service, the food, the atmosphere, attentive servers, to the lady who valet parked our car, this place is in our top 2-3. Great job! And they have half price wine on Wednesdays.

    This is one of our favorite restaurants. We don't visit often as we live some distance, but it is always worth the trip! The wait staff is exceptional. Very friendly but not intrusive. The food never fails to satisfy. It really is an upscale restaurant in an upscale neighborhood. And people come in sweatshirts and jeans. Also, dressed up a bit. Real mix of diners. Sometimes the prices are ridiculous, like $25 for a hamburger, but there is good variety. We will keep going there and recommend it to others!

    Vegetarian Wellington was under cooked and missing the cheese, pretty bland. Our server was a real downer and really ruined the experience. It was a great venue, but very poor execution overall. Won't be going back.

    It was good. The service was very engaging and kept on top of table needs. I was not overly excited by the taste of the meal. You could tell that it was made with quality, but the seasonings and flavor profile were just not to my liking. We will try it again because I think this restaurant has some potential.

    We had Christmas Eve dinner at Meridian. It was a festive and happy occasion. We had the scallops and the pork chop - both were outstanding. The service is always excellent at Meridian - one of the few places where it is consistently great. It was a wonderful evening.

    I would go back. The food was very good and our server was efficient and very kind. My only complaint would come from the second half of our meal. I made a reservation online for 9:30. I didn’t look at the closing time for the restaurant but it was clearly 10:30. We were the last ones in the place and it was very clear that all the employees were ready for us to leave. We weren’t even asked about dessert. Still, I enjoyed the experience and would go back. Maybe a bit earlier next time.

    Beautiful lodge-like dining room. Good and very well-made cocktail choices - lemon drop, vodka martini, wines by the glass. Salads were delicious and ample. Unfortunately, halibut was dry. Although pre-informed about the deconstructed chicken ot pie (ie. not in a pot, and no crust), we attempted to try it - definitely a surprise dish. Good dessert of apple purse. Service was friendly and attentive.
