    We live in PacificCity and the Meridian is our go to for apps and craft cocktails. We love the people working the Meridian, seriously, each and every time without exception, the service and staff are fabulous! We recently had Valentine's Day dinner at the bar and once again we had a great time, drinks and meal! Thanks!

    View is wonderful, go before dark! Food is top tier. Service was well informed, friendly, and nicely attentive. We've had several entries - all wonderful. Salads, steak, halibut, scallops, soup. Each was delightful. Not inexpensive, but not too pricey. That view ....

    Oysters on the half shell- 6 tiny oysters in a weird presentation. All we tasted was raw vinegar and onions. $29. Was told local up the street? Salmon - cooked well and flavor was on point. Land & Sea - beef tenderloin was incredibly difficult to eat. I could barely cut it and the chew was like rubber. No flavor either. Scallops were small, sparse and lost in the plate. For $68, no. Cocktails were on point. Flavorful and refreshing. Sean was a wonderful host but visibly overwhelmed. It did not seem particularly busy but he was also the only host. I am positive if we got him on a better evening our experience with him would have been much better. There was absolutely no music or any type of ambience. The room was extremely dark and quiet- aside from listening to the kitchen cooking the food and the soft murmurs of guests conversing. A very odd experience. We came here for my partner’s birthday because she was excited to get some fresh seafood. I am glad she got some good fish. Other than that, pretty disappointed. BJ’s Tacos & Burgers, Pelican Brewery, PC Wine, and Stimulus Bakery all had far superior food, service and ambience to price. I would return to the Tidepools Spa for another phenomenal experience, but can’t say I would return to Meridian. Sorry.

    Beautiful Oceanside restaurant. To have the ultimate experience go for lunch so the views can be appreciated. Friendly staff open to suggestions. My daughter asked for a huckleberry Moscow Mule which they promptly made and it was delicious. You may see it added to the menu! I highly recommend this restaurant if you are near Pacific City!

    Brandon made our experience exceptional. He is a total professional and made us feel welcomed, cared for; and we left feeling like we met a new friend . The Chef and kitchen staff created (5-star) Halibut and Crab Cake dishes. The Halibut was the best I have ever had. Remarkable culinary team. The Meridian Restaurant is located inside the Headlands Lodge and has stunning views of the Pacific. Conveniently located across the street from the Inn at Cape Kiwanda. Top - notch coastal dining experience.

    The menu is upscale but the ambience is "beach casual". Food and service were both outstanding. Expect to spend $100 per person for dinner, drinks and gratuity, but for a special meal, certainly worth it.

    My only real issue with the food was the salmon I requested well done… it was not cooked through in the center so I only ate about half of it from the ends. I didn’t mention it to our server so in all fairness they might have corrected it for me if I had asked. The rest of our food was good and our server was good too despite being very busy. We enjoyed the experience and would go again.

    What a great experience! The space is beyond beautiful, food was absolutely delicious, and the service (Lilly) was more than we could have asked for. Great views of the ocean and modern decor. No complaints on any of the apps or entrees - lots to pick from and all fantastic. Drinks were also perfect. Loved it and would absolutely recommend it. Prices were more upscale, but it was worth it.
