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.

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!

The meridian is still AMAZING! We felt safe with servers wearing masks, sanitizer on each distanced table, and minimal contact. The service was professional, friendly, welcoming. The good is fantastic as ever. It was such a relaxing, enjoyable meal. I highly recommend going back to the meridian!

Absolutely perfect dining experience. The precautions they’re taking during COVID are impressive, and we felt safe and taken care of. The staff all worked together, we never had to wait long for water, our food or anything. The meal was delicious and I’d 100% return. The Meridian is top notch.

This was a second visit back since the stay-at-home order lifted. We felt well distanced from other tables. Christian, our server, was attentive and knowledgeable without being too present. He was perfect.
The food was amazing. We always get the fried oysters. We recommend the beet salad, the duck, and the luxe old fashioned.

Hands down my favorite place to eat in Indy. They almost always serve a duck entree and it's always delicious. Any meat you order is served to perfection and the other entrees are incredible as well. Homemade donuts for dessert is my favorite!

I was satisfied with the restaurant. However, becoming very disappointed with Open. It has been over a week and have yet to reply to my e-mails to resolve my account. They will not send me my reward e-mails and refuse to give me points for my last 2 reservations. Which includes this one.

We celebrated our anniversary with dinner at Meridian. It was quiet and the food recommendations from our server were excellent. My husband's filet was cooked perfectly and the fried oysters made for a delicious appetizer. During this time of social distancing, the restaurant was very clean, all staff wore masks and tables were adequately spaced. Overall, our experience was very positive and they helped make our evening very special.

We had a beautiful and delicious dinner this past Saturday with some friends- everything was perfect and our server and the staff was superb and so kind. All precautions were taken and it felt very comfortable and safe. The food was delectable as was the bottle of wine we all shared. The Meridian is a perfect place to dine and so beautiful and relaxing inside. What a incredible venu we have here in the City!

We like coming here, and we like eating here. My main complaint, again, has to do with the obtuseness of the host staff. The restaurant was mostly empty, and yet the hostess -- despite the COVID-19 panic -- put all the tables literally proximate to one another when she could've easily spread us out with tables in between every party. The last time we were here the host staff seated the ONLY black couple in the entire restaurant in the far corner, in the way back by the staircase. The food is fine, the ambiance is nice. The host staff needs to all go to a situational awareness training...

The food was a major disappointment. I ordered a lobster and mussel pasta dish and it sadly had one lobster claw cut into pieces and about 10 mussels for $37. It wasn't very flavorful either and the lobster was very salty. The beet salad was a messy plate of overcooked beets sliced and torn with the smallest smear of goat cheese on the plate. My husband did enjoy his corn puree soup. It was the best thing we had .

Joe and Company get it right. The food tonight was spot on and delicious. Joe selected the wine pairing and we had a great time all around. The beauty of this restaurant is it’s warmth and casual elegance. Not to mention free or better valet parking. Love this place.
