Enjoyed Sunday brunch with Saints game on, great specials!
I've been talking up this restaurant for a while to my husband. Meril's definitely did not disappoint. Cocktails were perfect and the food was delicious. Service was spot on! Social distancing was maintained throughout. Can't wait to come back!!!
Most of the food was outstanding, the pasta left a bit to be desired, not much flavor, not much crab. It’s fairly loud inside even though they have some curtains to absorb sound. The service was fantastic! I’d definitely again!
We sat outside and it was delightful. Beautiful evening!
A great place for a casual evening. Glad to see it reopened. Our server does a great jog and the food is excellent.
Always great ! One of New Orleans finest !
Ambience, service, personnel was truly wonderful as we celebrated our engagement. They and patrons at the restaurant celebrated us. It was truly an awesome night and as usual an awesome evening at a restaurant that is fast becoming a favorite.
Great Saints Pregame lunch. Highly recommended as usual.
Great food and outstanding service! And we loved the decor!
The food was the best I have had in New Orleans and I've been coming there for years. I don't know how I missed it for the last 4 years. Had the gumbo, roasted oysters and flounder. My wife and I really enjoyed the experience even in this difficult time.
Awesome food and service.
It was my first time eating here and it was very nice.
The service was great. The servers were friendly. Good and drinks were delicious. Music was great! Love it!
Service and food were excellent. Everything Ms “Key”suggested was presented with style and tasted perfect. From the potato salad to the oysters to the banana pie, not a morsel left behind. Thanks so much Meril’s!
Wonderful as always. I LOVE Texas and Lisa was also great BUT no one is better than TEXAS!
Hits, Misses and Passes! Worked through 8 menu items. Hits were the drinks, octopus salad (fresh, good flavors, incredible olive oil) and gnudi with butternut squash, mushrooms and sage (incredible mushrooms with butternut squash and sage as the back notes). I was expecting stronger butternut squash and sage but was very pleased. Misses were the Korean beef & kimchi (not tender until we cooked leftovers more at home, potato kimchi was underwhelming) and lobster ramen (soft egg was over cooked, broth was great but not enough quantity). Pass on desserts- salted caramel ice cream with cookie was too salty with little caramel flavor, key lime pie was bland and served too cold, banana cream pie was just OK and was served at wrong temperature for flavors to pop.
I have to say I was underwhelmed. Portion sizes for dinner pasta dishes were about lunch size portions, and you get NOTHING else with them. I had the ribs that the waitress described as "fall of the bone tender." They were fairly tough actually, and the overall flavor left me saying, "Meh..." The banana cream pie for dessert was delicious, however.
I had eaten at NOLA about 10 years ago (the last time I was in New Orleans), and I remembered it fondly. I had hoped this would live up to that experience. Sadly, it did not, and NOLA was closed.
Our party of 5 thoroughly enjoyed our Coolinary Encore dinner at Meril. The servers were attentive, and the food was delicious. We didn't feel rushed and felt as if we could enjoy the evening together.
I always go to Meril. Service is pleasant. Drinks are good. Food is cool, depending on what you get.
The food was fantastic we had two waiters loved one of them which I guess was a helper wasn’t very fond of the main waitress
I have never had a bad experience at this restaurant. The food and service is always excellent.
The atmosphere is very laid back and welcoming. I enjoyed sides they were prepared to perfection and the old fashioned had a unique blend of bourbon and rye.
Food was great and atmosphere was cool. Would definitely recommend Meril’s. :)
I expected for from the food. Ordered the Moules & Frites. 30% did not open. One of the salt cooked shrimp was still bloody inside,
Excellent, would return over and over. Food was amazing, service was impeccable.
It was our first time visiting and it was a Great Experience!!! We went for my daughters birthday and the staff made her feel so special! Highly recommend.
Food and service excellent! Took our daughter and granddaughter and had a WONDERFUL experience! Expected to be outside dining and we were inside otherwise a PERFECT night!!!!
I miss the original menu but the food is always good!
Food and atmosphere was fantastic! Will be back
Always a great atmosphere and great for a big group or just a date, either one you will enjoy the food and the drinks!
Everything was amazing. Only complaint was that the steak au poivre was “market price”. Market price turned out to be $60 which seemed excessive.
Food was mediocre
Excellent service and food selections as always from Emeril's establishments.
We ultimately chose Meril because it was a friend’s 30th bday week and after so many rescheduled issues with cruise canceled, beach trip moved due to hurricanes and car break down, I was hoping the cotton candy would cheer her up a little since we could no longer walk around the quarter for her first time to nola (wind and rain from Delta.) Apparently since we didn’t lie and say it was her actual bday there is no cotton candy. Just one more thing gone wrong. Too bad, was going to post all over. This was my third time at Meril, food was good but won’t go out of my way to go again.
It’s was good as usual.
The food was delicious and unique - loved all the mixed drinks and Malbec I ordered!
Wonderful experience! Server was very pleasant and food was delicious!
Meril's always has the best service. Food is consistently good.
Molten cake was AMAZING!!!
