If you're looking for a quiet, classy lunch atmosphere with excellent food, this is your place. It's not a "cheap date," but quality product and service rarely is.
Food quality and selection was excellent, along with the service and ambiance. Our waiter was knowledgeable about the menu and very professional. We will be back soon.
We enjoy the ambiance and creative menu.
Meridian is consistently good. I had the stuffed pepper and the house salad. The pepper was chock full of quinoa and a little more of other vegetables would have been better. One of our guests ordered the special- pork but it turned out the last one had just been sold so the restaurant comped him another entree which was nice. The server was attentive and we sat at the table we had asked for near the fireplace.
Everything we had was fine. The issue is one of value. At $150 for the two us, I have just had much better.
Already recommended it. Tobias, our waiter was terrific.
Good and service were wonderful! Will definitely return!
I always attend Meridan for business lunches, not in the evening. It's is open concept, but feels like you have privacy to talk. The food and service are both consistently excellent.
This was our second time to Meridian. Our waiter was awesome and the food was excellent.
Dinner was excellant. The guys got Cervena, which is always wonderful. I tried a new fish and it was excellant! Love this restaurant! The ambiance is wonderful. Our server, Larry, is always wonderful. It’s a lovely place to go and relax for a wonderful dinner. AND - the bread, the desserts are AMAZING.
A wonderful place to celebrate a co-worker's upcoming wedding.
Tobias was great
It wasn’t as nice as I expected. The menu was not understandable to a non-foody person. The ambiance was nice however the atmosphere wasn’t diverse enough to my taste.
An old favorite with a very disappointing visit. We hope it’s just a one-off bad day and not a trend.
Meridian has the wow factor that keeps us coming back. Absolutely amazing food and service.
fabulous as usual
Very nice on all fronts, service was great. Just pricey! Hard to justify the cost to go back very often...
Eat with you often and always a wonderful experience
The service was top notch and the Risotto was delicious!
Food quality was unusually poor. Three of the four main dishes we ordered were very spicy without providing any warning or additional information about the amount of spice in the menu. The beet salad was fresh but tasteless. The risotto in the venison main dish was so overcooked it felt like eating mashed potatoes.
Hadn’t been here in years & happy the place is still around. Busy lunch crowd, but not so ridiculous we couldn’t get a table. Food is consistently good. Fish tacos were tasty, but missed the grilled fish tacos, instead of fried fish served today.
The Meridian is an ideal spot for business lunch meetings, which was the reason for this particular meal. Service was efficient, thoughtful and pleasant; the menu always includes many tempting dishes, suitable for a wide range of appetites and preferences; and the ambiance is warm and inviting.
Great food, excellent service. It is a little pricey but the food is wonderful and the portions were reasonable. The skate was amazing. My kale salad could have used some extra massaging but the dressing was delicious. Husband's beet salad was great and so was the bulgogi sweet potato gnocchi.
Our dinner at The Meridian was so good! We love the seasonal selections offered, and the service was wonderful.
We did not dine at the Meridian restaurant in Indianapolis. Please ignore my rating.
You didn't eat at Meridian Restaurant and Bar; we currently are not offering any of the items you mentioned.
Our meals of chicken tikki masala and ribs were divine! Just as if you were esting in chef's home! The charcuterie board was thoughtful and the pairings excellent. Do not under any circumstances skip dessert!
Very good place for business meetings. Servie is excellent and unobtrusive and they always honor my table choice.
What I was first impressed with was the quality of our service. Our waiter, Tobias, gave careful attention and care to almost every aspect of our experience, from excellent wine recommendations to re-folding our napkins as we left the table to wash up (not that the latter was expected). He even learned our names.
The food was well prepared and well presented in general. It's worth noting that we had a late dinner (we ordered our food around probably 9:15, 9:30 pm). We ordered appetizers, salads, entrees, and dessert. All of it was delicious and delightful to eat.
If I save my money, I would love to return. It was very expensive, but it was well worth it.
We went to celebrate a friends dinner and it was absolutely wonderful - they recently added “skatewing” to their Fall menu and it is amazing. My husband enjoyed the ribs—very very tender. Such a lovely venue and such wonderful service. We had a wonderful evening.
Disappointed the server didn’t mention that water was $6.5 a bottle.
I had the most amazing dish “skate wing” it was such a beautiful dish. The description was hard to imagine but our wonderful server, Larry, asked the table next to us if a diner enjoyed hers - the plate was absolutely clean! Sold me. It was fabulous. Perfectly nuanced and lovely. My husband as predicted ordered and throughly enjoyed the Cervena - it was a wonderful “win-win”.
Great food. Marvelous server. Charming venue. One of the best in town.
I have been here twice for lunch during the past few months and both times were wonderful. We enjoyed our meals and the service. If you are in the area, do not hesitate trying this restaurant!
Waiter was excellent
Very professional & thoughtful waiter staff... heads and above any other restaurant in Indianapolis. Great food and ambience as well. Creative chef with seasonally changing menu... Overall, the best restaurant in Indianapolis, in my opinion
The Meridian never fails to impress and please. The food is expertly prepared, the menu provides a variety of options for every taste, servers are appropriately friendly (meaning, they don't try to be your best friend but they are most welcoming and knowledgeable) and the ambience both indoors and on the patio in good weather, is ideal.
Wonderful experience all around.
Our lunch was very good; however, our service was slow. Extremely small serving of soup for $9 dollars. Glad we had kept our lunch reservation for a going away lunch because the food this time was good. We had dinner at Meridian two weeks prior to our lunch to celebrate our anniversary and the good was very disappointing. For an upscale restaurant - the service needs to greatly improve. Wait staff is very mediocre and they are just not very pleasant.
Excellent food, cozy place, friendly staff and servers. $$$
