Always a pleasure to dine at the Meridian. Everything was wonderful as always. Only noticeable difference this time was a feeling of wanting our party of four to leave - after 60 minutes - for, one would presume, to prepare for another guest. I would get that except there were plenty of available tables.

The food and service were good as always (we dine here regularly). We were annoyed by the presence of gnats flying around us for the duration of the meal. We were inside, well away from the doors to the patio area and away from the front door. I imagine they can address the problem. The other high end restaurants we frequent seem to have gnats under control. If this kind of thing bothers you, then maybe ask them before making a reservation.

It was a Tuesday night early dinner so restaurant was very quiet. It was the first time dining at The Meridian for me and my friend. We both found the food to be exceptional. Our waiter was outstanding. My only complaint was that I only had one option for Cabernet wine by the glass. We both truly enjoyed the whole experience and will definitely return.

Great food and service. Outdoors was great. Indoor seating is not as spread out as we would like and we did not see any sign of air purifiers or other steps that could make us feel better about indoor dining during Covid. Perhaps they have done such things, but is was not evident.

Loved it. Very inviting and relaxing environment. Terrific waitstaff. Good food but would not recommend the kale salad…they don’t know how to prepare it so that is tender

My only complaint is that I wish it was closer to Fishers so it would be easier to visit more often. You have to start with the smoked corn purée. I had the pork chop, my wife had the halibut, and our friend had the veal carbonara…all were incredibly prepared. Sara was an incredible server yet again, with spot-on suggestions when we couldn’t decide and just great conversation. Can’t wait to go back!!

We dined at Meridian on Sunday evening for the first time. We're glad that we did.
Since we hadn't dined there, Sarah held our hand and recommended some of the house favorites. We took her suggestions and we see why they're restaurant favorites. Food was really good and the service was even better.
Treat yourself!

The food was okay, but nothing great for the price. It was our second time here, and both times I've been underwhelmed. The atmosphere and the service were nice, but ya, the value is not what it could be.

Our food was okay - but not good enough for the price. The server brought our bread after the entrees - too late. The singer was too loud and she had a terrible, grating voice.

I have never come here for a business lunch, but will be back frequently. Excellent food options and a great place to have a conversation with business colleagues.

I love The Meridian for dinner and have had excellent meals here on many evenings.

Not your ordinary restaurant. A thoroughly engaging menu that you, your friends, your clients - anybody would enjoy. A top spot for lunch. Dinner on the patio is very nice. The staff know how and when to provide experienced dining services to your table without interrupting your social experience.
In case all of that isn't enough, you will love the atmosphere.

The server very nice Just two good friends meeting for a drink. We had great corn soup, but the Charcuterie Board not good. Very little cheese, pickles sour and meat too spicy. Disappointing. I will go back, but definitely will pick something else.

We frequent the Meridian. Everything is usually wonderful. My son ordered the Meridian burger and he asked for some sides(lettuce, onion) and it was never brought so he had to go ask for it.
Other than that, it was very nice.

Celebrated my wife’s birthday and even had it in the notes. The host brought it up asking, Who’s birthday is it? But did not wish my wife a happy birthday. Our server didn’t know nor asked if we were out celebrating a special occasion.

We fine dine regularly and the experience and aesthetics felt more like a supper club that was over priced.

Birthday dinner. Noted in reservation. Our server changed when we finished our dinner and a new person delivered our check. No explanation as to why she was delivering our check and made no mention of the birthday. She took our check and payment. While she was gone the table next to us also was celebrating a birthday and their server delivered a complimentary dessert bite with a candle. This added to our disappointment. Small thing but huge over-site. Will think twice before celebrating an occasion at your restaurant again.
