We started with the char-grilled octopus. It was perfectly cooked and tender. I ordered the sole which was too salty for me. My husband ordered the ribeye, he enjoyed it. We ended with the sweet potato cheesecake. Our waiter gave great suggestions, I was disappointed in my dish. I think I’ll try the pasta and clams next time

Great service, good food and a beautiful view made our anniversary dinner one to remember. My husband's steak was done perfect. I had the stuffed shrimp special and it was very good.

The ambience is not like anyplace else on the coast - very beautiful and tasteful. They are taking very good covid-19 precautions and were very accommodating to my son and I. Service was impeccable. Presentation of food was beautiful. Everything was delicious. It's quite expensive so if you read the menu ahead of time and understand that before you go, you won't be surprised. I would absolutely go back for another fine dining experience, something that is hard to find on the coast.

We came here for my wife's birthday because we were here in June for mine. We were seated at a nice window seat with the view of the beach. We started with a good Pinot Gris and the farm greens salad. We both ordered the clams and pasta dinner meal and it was very very tasty. We then finished with dessert and the view. Our server, Sam, was prompt, friendly, and professional.

This restaurant in Pacific City is a bit pricey, but we loved every minute. Our server was personable and professional. Dishes were presented very well and although we normally don't take pics before eating - in this instance we did as they were so beautiful. Safety during Covid was good as each table is separated by plexiglass dividers. Lovely atmosphere and really enjoyed our meal.

I had sole and my wife had chowder. Both were very delicious. The kitchen is open so you can see your food prepared and how it’s done. During Covid this is reassuring. Regarding Covid, the restaurant spaces people well apart and the staff is masked. The ambiance is really nice and the restaurant, on warm sunny days, opens up a wall of windows to the outdoors - a nice touch. Service was first rate. We made reservations via OpenTable and this seemed to work without a hitch.

From the complimentary champagne sitting by the fireplace and an ocean view for my husband's birthday, to the grilled octopus and double Pork Chop entree and perfectly cooked mediun rare NY Strip, this is a stellar, and exciting restaurant to visit while road tripping the Oregon Coast!

Menu is not extensive but covers most of the bases. Instead of one of the (relatively overpriced) entrees, you could make do with sharing small plates - we passed around four and were pleased with all. Server was pleasant but we noted she engaged more with her other tables than with us...unsure why.

Everything here is of the highest quality. Ingredients, presentation, technique and especially taste. My advice is that you cannot go wrong here, but the octopus small plate is a must have. Well worth the price and worth traveling for.

We celebrated our 49th wedding anniversary with an appetizer (charcuterie board), dinner (sturgeon and 2-bone pork loin chop), dessert & drinks. All presented as art on a plate and was quite delicious. Our waiter was very courteous and helpful. The view of the beach and ocean was beautiful. Our celebration was made that much more special by dining here.

We had the pleasure of dining once again at one of my very favorite restaurants on the Oregon Coast. As you enter The Meridian with its breathtaking view of the beach and Haystack rock, just know that the best is yet to come. From the greeting, to the appetizers, to the exceptional wait staff (Thank you again SEAN), all the way to dessert our dining experience was flawless. You must visit!

We had a great table location near the fireplace with a view of the open windows. The salmon was delicious and perfectly cooked! We were celebrating our anniversary and appreciated the champagne tasting and pacing of the appetizer, salad/soup, and entrees. Our server, Sean, was attentive and professional. The dining room is only open for dinner at this time but I hope we can try brunch another time as things return to regular operation.
