I thought are server talked down to us. My friend likes sweet wine, and he was being a wine snob. I asked about soup of the day, and was told no soup of the day but soup is listed on the menu. I was given a dinner menu. I love The Meridian but not so much yesterday. Yes, we stayed a long time, but that is what friends do. Thanks for checking.

Exceptional of course!
Noise level higher than usual - probably all those noisy women coming from Decorators Show House!

The food was good but simply not worth the money. A dinner for 4 cost $55 a plate, before wine, tax and tip. For that price, I would have expected top notch service which was not what I experience.

Food and ambiance was great for one of our first nights out after receiving the vaccines. We went early to ensure distancing and never felt uncomfortable. Boar bolognese was unbelievably good as were the oysters appetizer. Our waiter, Larry did an awesome job.

No one at our favorite restaurant told us the Easter Brunch menu was the only one being served til closing at 7pm. Website said Brunch during the day
and dinner beginning at 4pm. Usually great here but this was a 65th b'day and to be the only duce in the restaurant? The only two patrons in Meridian and being offered eggs benedict? Sorry, Meridian, you're off my list. It was an awful night and ruined the celeb ration. David Vass

Food is always good. Frities are soggy, chose not to make an issue this time because it would have been disruptive to our visit. . Asked for crispy, not eve close. But the rest of the food as always was superb. Thank you for accommodating our extra guest.

It had been a while since I last visited Meridian and it was great. I was there for my sister in law's birthday celebration. It was not busy, which surprised me, but the restaurant had hand sanitizer on every table and parties were placed sufficiently away from each other. The food was good. I had the Duck Confit Mac & Cheese. The duck on its own was a bit salty for my taste, but mixed with the Mac & Cheese, was a perfect blend. My sister in law had the fish tacos, which looked delicious and she said they were! Salads were good as always, and dessert in my opinion, is always the best part of any meal. We ended with the birthday meringue, the donuts, and the everything cookie. A great birthday meal!

Service was just ok. We came in for a birthday celebration but there was no special treatment on the house. I wasn’t expecting a free dessert or anything. We ordered a dessert. I expected a candle since I saw another table getting one. We’ve booked through Open Table noting it was a birthday special. When we got there, we said it was a birthday special. How many more do I have to mention?
Food was bit of disappointment. NY strip steak was too dry. Duck dish was too raw. Boar bolognese and pork shank was good.
We enjoyed it better when we came for a non celebration dinner night.

Service was EXTREMELY slow and lacking. Our table was barely bussed the entire evening and we were stacking dishes to get them out of our way. The cutlery was not exchanged between courses. It was challenging to get drink refills. Shaker still had mix from a previous cocktail and made it into our martini. We typically have excellent service and dine as Meridian often. Was a disappointing visit unfortunately.
