Great place for an anniversary dinner. Steaks and seafood are wonderful. Attentive service and extensive wine list. Outdoor searing is available. Only mild disappointment was no chocolate items on dessert menu. The waiter made up for that by making a nice hot chocolate sundae.

If you’re in Broad Ripple, just drive a little south to Meridian Restaurant and Bar for an expertly prepared and delicious meal!!! Each time we’ve gone there we have not been disappointed!! The chef, servers (especially Sam!) and General Manager all work as a team to give each table of diners the best experience possible!! Don’t be left out…go there and experience it for yourself!!!

There's a good reason the boar bolognese never leaves the menu -- it's an outstanding dish, matched last evening by the impeccable service and ideal ambience. This neighborhood gem of a restaurant always shines.

Food was great. The server dumped an entire glass of wine on my wife and I. All down her dress, my jeans and fill my shoes. Mistakes happen. We are all human but they did not take any $ off of the bill or offer to dry clean all of our clothes. We were soaked and sticky all throughout dinner and had to cancel the show afterwards.

The location of Meridian is ideal if you have friends coming from the north and the south. On a summer day, there's no better place than the patio to sit. I had a delightful lunch with a friend. Their corn puree is a go-to, even on a hot summer day! Had a wonderful salad. Great experience overall!
