Meridian Restaurant & Bar
Very very pleasant service - they absolutely took care of us. Sean was a delight and convinced us to try something new that we weren't expecting, and we were both happy for it. We had marvelous cocktails and a wonderful meal. We also were apparently the first to try the butterscotch pudding with shortbread cookies and it was DIVINE. We had a wonderful evening and would absolutely come back at any opportunity!
We enjoyed Thanksgiving dinner here this year. It was outstanding, everything was simply amazing. Our server suggested a quiet spot to watch the sunset, it was the perfect beginning to our dinner. We will be back!
Great food, great ambiance, and definitely will be back!!
Beautiful dining room/bar area and a great view. Service started out a bit on the sparse side but once remedied, service was excellent. This is a great restaurant to celebrate a special day or just to treat yourself to a solid and very pleasing experience.
I would recommend for breakfast or lunch perhaps. Dinner food, although beautiful, needed more seasoning. There's only a view of a parking lot and the noise level was a little high. Desserts were fabulous.
Food was great, wanted a window table for Anniversary, but they failed there. Waiter was outstanding.
We met friends celebrating an anniversary. The restaurant has spectacular ocean/beach views & a very friendly staff. There is a focus on fresh fish sold by the local doreymen & fishermen and locally sourced food. Our meals were tasty & uniquely & creatively prepared. A special place.
This is a very nice restaurant with a great view of the beach and a good menu selection. We started with a bottle of wine and the farm greens salad as the appetizer. My wife ordered the octopus and I ordered the clam linguine and both were excellent. A first time order of octopus which she would order again. We finished our dinner with the S'mores, what a treat. Our server, Shelley, was the best!
We brought our 13 year old Goodledoodle to the beach for the last time. Our server asked what was the special occasion so we told her. She told us to go get the dog as they would seat us closer to the lobby so he could enjoy a meal with us! They brought him a towel and water dish. Then the Chef heard about it and brought him our Liver Pate. The entire restaurant staff were so incredibly thoughtful and kind and the sting of the trip a little gentler. I will forever be grateful 🙏🏻💯❤️😢
An interesting menu with share plates and more traditional starters and mains, all beautifully executed. Friendly staff, stunning environment. $273 for four, including a terrific wine.
Delicious food and wonderful service. Great views of the ocean. Drinks were awesome!
My partner and I enjoyed one of the best meals we've ever had. Service by Sean was just right- warm, friendly, informative, and professional. Thank you for a memorable dining experience.
Located in the Headlands Resort and Spa, Headwaters is the best dining experience we've had on the Oregon coast. The vibe is super lo-key (can even have dogs at a few tables) but beautiful laid back decor. The staff at Headlands and Headwaters clearly care about the company they work for and delight in making sure every guest has a great experience. They truly care about service and getting things right. I only gave the food 4 stars as I tend to compare across different regions. For the Coast, it is five star. The menu is brass enough to give everyone something they will like but small enough to guarantee fresh local ingredients and thoughtful presentation of what is in season.
The pork chop for dinner is a must! The berry glaze was phenomenal. Our service was very sincere and polite, we were celebrating our anniversary and received a glass of champagne upon sitting. Recommend this restaurant for anyone staying around the Pacific City area and we will definitely be back.
We ate dinner and breakfast here during our stay at the hotel. Everything we had was fantastic! You can't beat the views!
Love this place! Never disappointed:)
Great service from everyone we encountered. The food was delicious and the view is outstanding!
The views are outstanding if you can get a window table. However, I wasn't very impressed with the food, especially considering the price.
Staff was personable and knowledgeable about the menu.
Great view, friendly service, food was tasty! Happened upon a noisy night, but will definitely try again.
Food and service were fantastic. The portions were a bit small for the price but it is the only upscale dining on the beach in the area (as far as I'm aware) so that is expected. Get the s'mores desert. It's delicious!
This was our first time there, food was amazing, service was perfect thank you Sam. The desserts were to die for. We will make it a regular.
Terrific food and great service in a beautiful setting overlooking the Pacific Ocean
The cook is spot on! Wow!! Clam chowder is best on the coast and the ribeye was served with chimichurri sauce! So robust and flavorful! Went back for round two! Excellent service and spectacular views. Thank you for the wonderful experience!
My family and I didn't have a great experience. Dinner was almost an hour and half long and most of that time was spent waiting for food or a beverage. Maybe the experience would be better if the food was memorable but I can't even remember what I ordered. I most likely will not recommend this restaurant.
We just popped in from Chicago on a log road trip and was blown away by the food. Excellent!
Food was delicious. However, for the prices, we expected it to be a little more romantic and laid back.
We could hear the kitchen and the bar smashing ice, clinking dishes, speaking loudly.
We would recommend eating here, but go in expecting more of an energetic bar feeling versus a place to enjoy a romantic anniversary dinner.
Great seat looking out at the ocean and food was amazing
Great meal while staying at Headlands Lodge. Service was great and there was a beautiful view. Save room for the Milk and Cookies dessert!
As guests of the lodge in Pacific City, we decided to celebrate my husband’s birthday in the restaurant. Our salads were uniquely flavorful. The sole’ entrees were amazing. The wine was a fine pairing. But the view was even more spectacular.
Mostly everything was very enjoyable. The food, the drinks and the service was wonderful. The view was spectacular would have like to see more ocean but loved the experience.
The only off thing was that there was way too much butter in the risottto. All three of us tried it and agreed the butter overwhelmed the dish.
We will come back again and try the tappas so not all is not a loss. But we will remember to inquire about the risottto to see how that is doing?
We had a great breakfast! Wonderful food and service!
Our first visit to this restaurant. Very nice atmosphere. Excellent service. Outstanding food. Perfect for a birthday celebration.
Good service and atmosphere. Love this place!
Waited for someone to come by our table for 15 minutes, while there was only one other busy table. Just left without hesitation
i have been to the Meridian several times and have never been disappointed. The service staff is friendly with good recommendations. The wine selection is good. The menu and specials will accommodate a diverse audience. Will be back!
Service is good! Staff cares about what they do.
Super noisy with little fabric to absorb sound. Booth height is low, so you’re sitting at a pretty high table.
Food was disappointing: pasta very dry - sent it back (rare for us to do!) salad over dressed, with most on the bottom of the plate. Chowder was good! Crab dip not very moist; the crostini was perfect. Wine options were a good value. Sorbets were okay, with the Marion berry being the best.
In all, it was underwhelming given the level of detail to the rest of the Headlands facility.
Restaurant is in this beautiful headlands resort. Lots of windows to see the ocean and the moon.
The server and the bread guy were great. Food good. Wine great.
Fabulous venue with beautiful ocean & beach view. Seafood fresh. The Dungeness Crab Dip and the Seafood Chowder were delicious! The Service was impeccable and there was no wait with “open table” reservation! Great “last night” dinner celebrating our Oregon vacation that we didn’t want to end!
