    Gorgeous restaurant, professional, hospitable staff, excellent food. Don’t miss their chowder or scallops, and if available, the agedashi tofu - so nice to see such a beautifully prepared vegetarian dish. This was our first time dining at Meridian, we can’t wait to return.

    We celebrated our 30th anniversary there and it was wonderful! Everything from the general ambiance to our server to our drinks and meal were exceptional. The Sitka drink is so unique and delicious - I'll order it again. Our appetizers were the right amount and so flavorful - the house chowder wasn't heavy like a typical chowder. It was perfect! My husband ordered the ribeye and he said it was cooked exactly as he ordered and expected. My sturgeon was delightful! Very generous portions, well cooked accompaniments, and again just delicious! Our server, Sam, was fantastic! She wasn't overbearing, but attentive, friendly but not fake. We felt the prices well supported everything we experienced! Thank you, Meridian Restaurant, for a memorable evening to celebrate our 30th!

    Tried almost all the sea food on the menu, everything was great. The developer of this place really should have put the restaurant on the bottom level of the ocean side IMO. Having all guests checking into hotel walking through the restaurant was noisy. Everything else was top notch.

    I feel that they cater to the hotel guests, by seating the locals in less desirable areas. Though I reserved a special anniversary date days in advance,my husband and I were sat in the noisy bar area. The food was good but not superb for the top dollar you are charged. This was our second visit and if we ever return we won’t reserve ahead.

    I had an amazing experience a Meridian Restaurant! Shelly (our server) was so attentive and made me feel very special as I celebrated both a birthday and a babymoon. They went above and beyond to make sure the table we had was romantic and special and that our drinks and food was timed perfectly to the flow of discussion at our table. I highly recommend Meridian for any special occasion.

    It was great both times we ate in Meridian while in Pacific City - large portions of excellent food. They had just opened up for in-restaurant dining and we felt safe. Tables were spaced out, they had plexiglass barriers between tables, and the restaurant has a very high ceiling.

    a wonderful place on the beach, where upscale dining is not so easy to find. Very quiet in December 2020. The menu is somewhat restricted, and it is a bit pricey but otherwise, the service was good and the food excellent. I particularly recommend the Elk.

    We stayed two nights at Headlands so we tried different dishes at the Meridien and as a meat lover I can say their Rib Eye is probably the best I have tried which is above all the great steakhouses in Portland. Pork Chops outstanding as well and the grilled Octopus as well....last but not least the cocktails are amazing ! Worth every penny

    My husband and I had a very lovely dinner the other night. Our server was excellent and friendly. The food and presentation was perfect, as usual. I'm always pleased to be able to eat a well-prepared Petrale Sole which is rarely found on restaurant menus. My husband inhaled the delicious clam chowder and crab cakes. The Meridian's ambiance is never taken for granted, and the outside ocean view is the icing on the cake!

    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

    We loved our time at Meridian Restaurant, though we both found it a bit on the louder side. Know that your meal will be in an energetic atmosphere, as it's attached to the entrance/check in/gift shop, etc that all occur on that floor of the hotel. Come hungry -- the portions are huge! Plating and presentation were pretty to look at, and our window table gave us nice views of the sunset while we ate. Definitely a do-not-miss if you're staying in Pacific City. If we're ever back, we'll definitely visit again.
