Best staff! Great wine. Fabulous burger
Wonderful service, amazing food. You will not be disappointed.
The reservation was for 6:45; but we arrived a bit early. Never the less, we were seated promptly. After a couple cocktails, our food was served hot and delicious. All in all, it was a great evening, for my wife's birthday.
It was an amazing experience, with a great menu, dedicated waiter, great observation of COVID rules of social distancing and mask wearing, and reasonably priced!
Food and service were great. Music was too loud and distracting.
The patio garden was delightful. Our waitstaff was extremely friendly, professional, and made us feel so welcome! The corn soup is truly amazing and must have as a starter. I Love the chicken enchiladas but my friend had the salmon with asparagus and hers looked amazing also. Must finish the meal with the donuts! Warm yum with mocha sauce and real whipped cream. Such a joy and I highly recommend the meridian! It feel exceptionally clean and good precautions to keep everyone safe and happy. We felt so special!
I feel like I've missed out on this wonderful local gem being open 12 years, but they don't seem to suffer from the lack of advertising. Coincidentally we were celebrating our 12th anniversary and wanted to try a local restaurant. We are so glad we found Meridian. Very cool restaurant with rustic cabin/house vibe. There is ample space for larger parties but also for intimate seating which we prefer. The only issue we had with the seating was we were by one of the windows and A/C vents so it was almost too cold, but when I mentioned it to the hostess she and our waiter went into action to minimize the issue.
The food expertly prepared and the portions adequate. I had the coffee rubbed cervina and I would return for that alone. My wife had the boar bolognese and enjoyed it. This creativity of ingredients was a wonderful break from the norm. I was also considering the duck confit cassoulette and even the grilled halibut. As I understand the menu is seasonal, I am already thinking about a return visit to experience more of this creativity. Compliments to the chef and kitchen staff.
I found the prices to be comparable with other fine dining options, but were quite impressed with the selection of wines that were in the $40 price range. Some restaurants seem to price themselves out of the bottle purchase range, but also lack suitable by the glass options to compensate. The after dinner drink selection was either limited or not advertised. I typically enjoy a scotch when we are out celebrating at similar fine dining offerings, but this limitation did not diminish my experience adversely.
Again, we had a wonderful experience and will certainly recommend Meridian to our friends, and consider returning ourselves.
The food was amazing and the service was perfect.
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.
This is one of my "go to" restaurants when I travel to Indy. We had a party of 4 and we ordered 2 boar bolognese, a grilled halibut and the meridian burger with fries. The flavors in these dishes were incredible. The crowd favorite was the bolognese but the others were equally delicious. The service was excellent, as always, and the atmosphere was warm and inviting.
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!
Thank you for the warm words, Donna! See you again soon! *blushes*
The Meridian never disappoints. We enjoy dining there every time!
Could not have been better
nice place in nice neighborhood. quality food and presentation. just nothing that differentiates it from other" better" restaurants in Indianapolis
if in the area, is worth the visit
Perfect spot for a special lunch with the grown kids visiting from out of town. Great service, delicious food, and quiet enough to enjoy conversation.
The outdoor dining space is especially lovely and inviting at The Meridian, and the service warm and efficient. This is a neighborhood gem!
The Meridian has the ideal outdoor dining spot, with expert service and expertly prepared, creative entrees. We highly recommend it.
We always have great service here, and this trip was no exception. Our waiter was personable, attentive, and gracious. Our food was hot and just what we ordered.
We are always made to feel welcomed.
I recommend this restaurant. Unique menu items, fine wine list, and great staff!
Always a real joy to dine here......everything about the experience defines a definite upscale type of restaurant. From the valet, to the greeter, to the waitstaff is a pleasure to dine here.
Tobias took wonderful care of us. His suggestions from. Cocktails to Desserts were spot on.
We're glad to hear you enjoyed us! We're fond of Toby too!
Overal the experience was great.
Always such a treat!
Wonderful treat! Fabulous service with great food. I recommend the corn purée soup! Even better than I remembered! The patio is really pleasant and felt safe. All servers were wearing masks and took care to protect us during pandemic. We were treated like royalty! I highly recommend!
Thanks for the warm words! You don't have to sacrifice a high level of service to achieve safety.
Had our anniversary dinner on the patio. Food and service were impeccable. We will be back for their fall menu!
Fabulous dinner on the Patio. Meridian is always a great place to dine. Love the food, atmosphere and staff!
The salmon presentation and flavor was excellent.
Meet up with a friend after months away due to pandemic. Love the ambiance, elegance, service, kindness, amazing food- and hand sanitizer on every table. It was a wonderful treat. I highly recommend
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.
Food was amazing!!
Duck entree was fantastic. Peach empanadas were outstanding.
Excellent food, service, wine and outdoor dining.
Food and service is alway impeccable. Never disappointed in our experience.
We enjoy this restaurant, the food is consistently excellent, the service is impeccable, and the ambience is elegant.
Amazing food and service as usual!
Had a fantastic lunch here this week. The chicken enchiladas were fantastic, as well as the cheeseburger. Our server was exceptionally attentive. We sat outside and the ambiance was really great for lunch. Highly recommend!
We set outside on the patio and we had great service and the food was served hot and tasty.
AMAZING experience -- I would recommend this restaurant to absolutely everyone and anyone. The steeper cost was definitely worth it. The food was exceptional, the service was unparalleled, and the aesthetic of the space was great too. We will without a doubt be coming back for special occasions again.
I love visiting this restaurant! I always feel welcomed and dinner is always special.
