    The food and service were wonderful. Not the place to come if you’re in a hurry. It also got very loud so if you were in a large group, it is hard to hear most of the people at the table except for the person right next to you.

    The food was excellent, the atmosphere was perfect for a couple to have a conversation or to people watch. The menu selection was very diverse but our waiter was not very enthusiastic and honestly kind of intimidating. Would definately go back for the food!!

    I'm not sure how you undercook a crawfish flatbread, but ours was very doughy. Kinda ruined our dinner being it was one of our entrees. All other dishes and drinks were good. Great waiter.

    The food was excellent. There was four of us so we each picked a shareable for the table and then each got a different flatbread for dinner. The service was also fantastic, very attentive and friendly. The restaurant is lovely with lots of floor to ceiling windows.

    Meril’s was an excellent choice for our special occasion. Upon arrival I was told I was seated near the kitchen. I was a little unsure about sitting near the kitchen. As the host walked us over my eyes lit up. The kitchen was beautiful. Sitting there watching so many beautiful, colorful, well organized plates be brought out one after the other. It was a beautiful evening. The food was delicious, the drinks were great. The service was superb. It was Valentine’s Day and there was a menu for two, we were told about the dishes and even given suggestions.The music was great. I truly truly loved my experience. I am a local and I am now infatuated with this restaurant 10k/10 strongly recommend. Very accommodating.

    The food was excellent, every dish was delicious. The candied pork ribs were melt in your mouth tender. The veggie side dishes (Brussels sprouts, roasted carrots) were outstanding. We also had grilled octopus as appetizer. The taste was delicious but my husband preferred a more crispy texture like the one we had in Athens, Greece. Now the not so good: the service was pretty slow which is somewhat understandable with full house on Valentine’s Day. However getting our drinks was a real challenge, we had to remind our waitress (and other servers who were around) at least 3 times before we got our cocktails and later on our bottle of champagne. This was very annoying and somewhat dampened our enjoyment of the dinner experience.

    We celebrated our anniversary at Meril and the entire staff made it such a special occasion. The service was the best from the moment we walked through the door -- everyone so attentive and friendly. And, the food was spectacular -- we choose to share a number of dishes and each one was delicious. Thanks Meril's for making a memorable night for us!!

    Very good experience with a party of 7. Great service. All but one dish was delicious (we had a large variety of shareable dishes). The exception was the octopus, which was cooked well, but too much sauce that didn't really complement the dish well.

    My family and I had the best time at your restaurant! The service was outstanding, the food was so delicious, the atmosphere was so festive and fun. We had two children at the table, and they loved their food and especially the cotton candy sparklers desserts. Your restaurant really brought some incredible Mardi Gras magic to the evening!

    we had a reservation at Meril tonight for 615 for 10 people made months ago. I called Tuesday to see if we could increase the party size to 14. I was advised that I needed to speak to a manager and he/she would call me back. As of Thursday I had not heard back so I called again and spoke to Kayla. She told me that you could not accommodate us at the original time but if we were willing to come at 5 PM she could split the part to 8/6 and we could be seated to dine. This was great news. We unfortunately were running behind because the hotel lost our luggage, I called to notify and was told not a problem because our reservation was at 615 which was a little confusing but ok. We arrived as soon as possible ( just after 5). I was told again that we had a reservation at 615 BUT it was for 10. I advised the reception that I had spoken to Kayla and explained what had transpired, Marcus Benoit came to the desk and told me that the conversation never happened because ANY conversation with Kayla would have been in the office WITH him present and we could not be accommodated. I explained that I had called Tuesday, called back Thursday and if we would have known in advance we could have gone to Antoines or somewhere else (but we were avoiding crossing Canal) and his exact works “well you should have”. He also said “I am not saying that you did not to to Kayla but a you did not talk to Kayla.” I have NEVER in my life been spoken to in this manner. This man called me a liar. Why would I even make this up? We were trying to have a nice dinner with family to kick off the MARDIS GRAS weekend. If this would have been managed properly from the beginning we could have made other arrangements. Furthermore you NEVER speak to a paying customer in this manner. I walked around to Emerils to try to speak to a manager over there an let them know what transpired and I hope that this is handled internally with retraining of your front of house.

    It was Mardi Gras so I expected it to be loud and longer for service. It took over 80 minutes to get scaled down entrees. The alligator app was not good. Should have been bite sized pieces. Again, it was Mardi Gras Friday, so expectations should be accordingly. $270 for 5 including tip, only 2 alcoholic beverages, was a lot for nothing spectacular.

    Meril was great!! Exceptional Food! I was in New Orleans for 6 nights and ate at Meril TWICE! I tried different appetizers and entrees at each meal and was so impressed! We had the redfish special and the gnudi-- both were outstanding! And I loved the pocket bread-- took me back to eating at NOLA ! Highly recomend!
