Good for parties of 4 or more. Can order lots of different things and share. Great atmosphere
Great ambiance. Service was great as usual. Their cocktails are incredible!
Best pork ribs I’ve ever had in my life
Always a treat to eat at Meril’s! Good food and good service.
Went 2 days in a row for lunch as we did last year. Just fabulous. Today our server was Charlie, just great service and so h a cute gal, is that politically incorrect?
Delicious food! Excellent service! Fun atmosphere!
Best meal we had in NOLA! We ordered a number of items between all of us and they were all excellent. Very attentive service and the specialty cocktails were top notch.
Service was outstanding. Didn't expect "tapas" style dining, but that was not a problem. Six of us left stuffed with just a few entrees. The cotton candy celebration was over the top.
Great food and atmosphere. Staff friendly but food slow to come out and getting bill took a long time. Couple at table next to us left due to wait and slow service. Group behind us also had delays and issues with orders. Manager helped deliver food. Manager also came by and apologized and paid for our drinks.
Would return because food so good but need change with wait after ordering and staff follow up with customers
Service and food were fantastic. The noise level of the restaurant would be my only complaint. I love the small plates. It's a fun way to try different things and not be stuck to only one choice of entree. I especially loved the pasta dishes.
Wet good restaurant
I would recommend this restaurant to anyone going to visit NOLA, it was incredible. We went for an earlier dinner around 5. We were a large table of 6. We all agreed it was the best service and meal we have ever had. We started with the Mexican corn, burrata salad and deviled eggs. Then we each got a different pasta and then dessert. My cousin loved it so much, she went back the next day for lunch to order the same thing! You will definitely not be sorry if you come here.
The meats were overly salted and dry. Fish special was terrible. Not what I expected from Emeril’s restaurant.
We sampled a number of dishes and they were all fantastic. Unlike many NO restaurants, which over sauce the food, Meril uses sauces to let the underlying quality of the protein and veggies shine through.
Big hits were the chicken under a brick, rock shrimp tacos and upside down cornbread. The chocolate cookie in skillet is worth the calories.
The food was very tasty and the service was great.
It seems everyone knows that this is the place to go on your birthday. They serve up a flaming cotton candy to help you celebrate! Lively atmosphere and excellent food!
What an amazing experience we had for my husband's 60th birthday celebration! From the energy in the place to the amazing food it was a huge success! The service was beyond exceptional! The cotton candy and sparkler celebration for his birthday made for a very special ending for the birthday boy! Will do this again and highly recommend it for groups!
Wonderful surprise! The black fettuccine with crab it’s absolutely delicious and the tuna wraps a simple very fresh and savory starter!
The lobster cannaloni was fabulous!
Food was was fantastic. Tried several small plates and all were very good. The “wise guy” flat bread is a must try.
Service was poor at best, food probably would have been good when it was hot, noise from music was impossible to have a conversation over. Been here before- not going back.
Hosted a sm casual business dinner for 10 menu allowed for a lot of interaction ordering and sharing small plates everyone got to try some of everything high lights included Korean Shortribs, bbq ribs and biscuits. Service was attentive but not intrusive The restaurant is rather loud so if you are looking for a quiet intimate dining experience or to have a business meeting this is probably not the place.
Great venue, eclectic menu and off the charts noise level. Lots of opportunity to try many tasty kitchen dishes. We were disappointed to learn that two red wines we selected were out of stock.
The Service was GREAT, with Santana taking care of us.
We ordered Korean beef short ribs, they were seasoned well but was surprised to get them thin slices which made for a tough entree.
Great drinks also!
For portion size which were small I expected a more reasonable price.
I would try Meril again.
Great food, great vibe. It's loud, so not a place for conversation.
One of Emeril's best! Food is excellent as well as the service. Smaller portions for sharing. Great prices and options. Banana Pudding Ice Cream Cake is to die for!
The food is excellent. The service was Just OK. We had to wait 35 minutes between course. 35! The couple at the next table arrived after we did and left before we did. The servers kept saying, ‘should only be a few minutes.’ The manager ended up comping part of our meal because of the lax service. That said, the food is truly delicious.
This was my first time and my boyfriends first. Both of us were blown away. Food, service, atmosphere was incredible. Best meal we have had in a long time. We will always have to come back when we are in town. Love this place!
Five stars! Great service, food and atmosphere. Would highly recommend!
We really enjoyed our experience at Meril. The staff was very attentive and the food arrived quickly. We loved the snakes fish dip, muffuletta flatbread, fried chicken wedge salad and lobster fettuccine. We took the advice of the waiter and ordered their special, roasted pork over risotto and were disappointed. The risotto was way too salty (and I typically love salt) and the fennel overwhelmed all of the other flavors. Based on the other things we are I expect this was the exception.
Honestly I was very underwhelmed by the food. I loved our apps but I could barely eat my entree. And on top of that the service was super slow. Sad to say I wouldn’t go back
Wonderful restaurant, came here while in town for a conference and I liked it so much I came back two nights later! They have a gluten free menu as well, which is why I looked them up in the first place. The food was SO GOOD! And I had a lot of options. I love the open kitchen concept. You can see right in and watch the action. I'll definitely come back again if I am ever in New Orleans.
Waiter was just very ho-him
All the food, except one starter, came at the same time. The starter came when we were done. We were celebrating a birthday that was not acknowledged by their special presentation.
I have been to Meril several times and this was by far my least enjoyable trip . I do not eat meat and many veggie items have bacon. A few of my favorite items were no longer available or just ok. Thank goodness for the mexican street corn it never disappoints.
Overall a great experience! I had a group here to celebrate a birthday and although I wasn't a fan of our seating location and they were late seating us they made up for it with service and the food was delicious! Our waiter was efficient and the food didn't take long to come out to the table! I'd definitely come again!
Amazing food, great service, such a great dinner! I can't wait to go back.
Excellent food ad service! Fun, lively environment. One of my absolute favorites in Nola!
Lemon Ice Box pie and tuna lettuce wraps were great!
Incredible food. Amazing Service. I can’t wait to go back and try other food.
