Meridian Ratings and Reviews
Delicious food with a large variety of options. My husband’s quiche and salad looked amazing! I had the spinach salad and it was very good and fresh. Our server was very attentive and took excellent care of us. The decor was very rustic and it made me feel right at home!
Very disappointed with the menu. My wife is much more of a foodie. Any restaurant that doesn’t have steak on the menu is ignoring diners like myself. My fault for not reviewing the menu before booking a reservation. Have had great steaks there before so I assumed they would have them. Live and learn!
I'd consider myself a serious "foodie." Meridian is quite possibly the very best restaurant experience I've ever had on every level -- service, food, ambiance, atmosphere -- oh, did I mention SERVICE and FOOD??? Absolutely, without question, Indy's best kept culinary secret.
We’ve driven past this place for years when traveling to Indy. We recently moved here so we deceided to finally give it a try. So glad we did. In a nutshell: dine here for the flavors & food preparation. The food is unique & inovated with being too far out. Aubergine(eggplant) soup was amazing. Nice puréed consistency & served at just the right temperature. The roasted & braised vegetables that accompanied the melt in your mouth short ribs could have been a meal on their own. The pumpkin creme brûlée was delicious & definitely big enough to share. I was not a huge fan of the cranberry jam on top but it was easy to move aside. The pumpkin underneath was smooth & creamy. Not too sweet or overspiced either. Ask for Tasoula, she’s an excellent server.
For the first time ever, I had terrible food at lunch with a friend who'd never been there!!!
Corn chowder was like wallpaper paste, and the BLT was on ciabatta bread!! Awful choice of bread for that kind of sandwich!! Why not some great thick sliced whole wheat bread?
Service was good & I normally love dining for lunch or dinner at The Meridian, however, yesterday was not the day!!! Terrible first impression for someone who was looking forward to having lunch there!!!
Celebrated our 15th wedding anniversary with a wonderful meal at Meridian. My wife enjoyed the beet salad and the grouper entree and I enjoyed the caprese salad and duck. I'm not normally a duck guy but I took our waitresses recommendation and I was glad I did. Crispy on the outside, tender on the inside. For dessert we had the Swiss roll and the doughnuts. Both great, but oh, the doughnuts! Charming setting and great service!
We don't live in Indianapolis, but when researching where to redeem our $100 dining check, we were excited to discover Meridian. The atmosphere, ambiance, excellent service and food were all perfect for celebrating our 19th wedding anniversary. My husband had the sweetbread appetizer and grouper. I had the absolutely delicious smoked corn chowder and the duck. All the food was amazing and we look forward to our next visit!
Lovely early Sunday dinner with a friend. Enjoyed the heirloom caprese and the chicken and grits. Good wine selection. Desserts a little disappointing but overall very pleasant experience in a quiet, convenient location. (Didn't order this time but their corn chowder is amazing!)
Meridian is one of my favorite local restaurants. The menu changes based on what is in season and the chef incorporates ingredients sourced from the many area farms and ranches. The food is fresh and flavorful, typically with an unexpected twist. We had the grouper with a smoked tomato beurre blanc, which was spectacular. The wine list is small, but curated. The wait staff are true professionals, very knowledgeable about the entire menu and wine list, able to provide helpful recommendations based on individual preferences. The patio area feels a bit more relaxed than inside, but that may be because I typically visit in the summer and I just really like the patio.
This was a wonderful way to celebrate our anniversary and is located in our neighborhood.
The waiter was friendly and offered great suggestions
I don't believe there is a bad entree choice on the menu.
The presentation was well done and the taste of the salmon and veal were even better.
We will definitely return as I understand they change menu items seasonally.
Had heard a lot about the restaurant. We were downtown for an appointment and stopped for dinner on the way home. In a great area in the middle of the Meridian/ Kessler section of Indianapolis. The food was exceptional . We had an oyster app that was fantastic. The main courses, as well as the service was excellent. Would definitely go back.
