The food is consistently good and the service excellent. A bit short handed on our recent visit, but generally one can count on good service. Pleasant place to dine, usually quiet and comfortable. One pays a goodly price for the service and food.

The Meridian continues to deliver friendly, efficient and knowledgeable service and excellent food in a warm and inviting atmosphere. Having one of the most picturesque outdoor dining spots in the city, they have taken excellent measures to make al fresco dining tolerable well into the chilly months. Applause for this gem!

We had a delightful meal in the bar. The fried oysters were crispy with three yummy sauces drizzled on the plate. The artisan greens were fresh with a nice vinaigrette. For our entrees we had the boar bolognese and a pork tenderloin special. Both were spot on. Donuts for desert were delicious. Light and fluffy.

Had the most exceptional meal on a Sunday evening at Meridian. Went at 4 PM and had the whole restaurant to myself. Sarah took impeccable care of me. Everything I ate and drank was exceptional... from the glass of Cabernet Sauvignon to the perfectly cooked duck to the peach empanadas. Would gladly return for a special occasion dinner. Interested to try their lighter fare for lunch as well. Also, they were very attentive to safety precautions due to COVID. All the staff were in mask. Complimentary hand sanitizer at each table. Tables 6 ft. apart. Felt very safe.

We asked to sit outside because of the Covid situation. One of our lunch attendees is above 80 and was concerned about eating inside. Problem being, the outside seating was so crowded. There was very little distance between tables and people. In addition, a mowing crew was there during lunch and we all had to yell over them. I couldn’t believe Meridian allowed that.

So happy this restaurant has reopened, as good as ever. It’s such an island of tranquility and social amiability even with physical distancing. I suspect lunch, for which this place is the go to place for people asking others for money, is quiet, if not dead. All the more reason to enjoy dinner there.

Meridian

Thank you so very much! And you're right - lunch is very quiet right now....but when people start feeling more comfortable having in-person lunch meetings we'll back to gangbusters!
