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!!!
The food was fantastic like always!!!!!! My pasta was to die for.
Our servers were fantastic and very knowledgable about the menu with dietary restrictions.
The service was outstanding! The food was impeccable. Great experience overall!
Perfect every time.
Need some lighting or way to see the menu outside.
It was my daughters birthday. The chocolate molten peanut butter cake did not taste well or fresh. Two of us had the ribs. They were not good. I could have made easily. Simply baked in the oven and jar bbq sauce slapped on the top. My experiences with Meril before COVID were amazing. This time it was not good. My children had the flatbread pizza which did not have much cheese and sauce on it. It was a little dry. Maybe I just like my cooking better now since I’ve done a lot of it. My husband is an ex-cook at The Palace back in the day. Maybe I am a little judgmental but for an Emerald restaurant it was not good. Love Destin’s Coastal Italian and Dominica. The pasta with blue crab ...that’s amazing. Sorry I can’t review better.
Great place to watch the Saints Game!!
Absolutely a delightful experience especially while watching the Saints game! The food was exceptional as we treated ourselves to the fries, fettuccine nero, the daily gumbo (which was shrimp and andouille), the charred octopus salad, and from the specials, we had gotten the Emeril’s BBQ shrimp, the chilled Murder Point oysters, and the banana cream pie.
BONUS to an already extraordinary meal: On my fettuccini nero, Chef offered to make some scallops to go along with my pasta. So excellently seasoned and cooked. Such a pleasant addition!
Our servers were extremely friendly, and they left us in a happier mood every time they came to the table. I wish I remembered their names to give them the praise they truly deserve.
Just an overall wonderful time, and happy to be back at Meril’s again!
Nice atmosphere, great food
Always an excellent time! We always make the time to have at least one dinner there when we visit New Orleans.
The food was delicious. The corn was the best that I have had in my whole life.
It was a great spot hit a bday dinner enthusiastic
Meril’s was so noisy that I could not hear my husband speak. We could not hear our server.
We both were so tense from the noise and chaos, that we couldn’t enjoy our meal or each other’s company.
You need to put carpeting on the floor, sound proof the walls and ceiling, at the bare minimum.
Everything is great!
We went there to celebrate my niece's birthday and we had a great time. The staff were very attentive to our needs and suggested wonderful dishes to try. The birthday treat was spectacular. The Frozen Hound Dog was the best. The precautions taken to keep us safe was well thought out and implemented.
This was a terrific experience from start to finish. The wait staff was fabulous. They were friendly, attentive and efficient. The dining room was set nicely for social distancing, yet I didn’t feel like we were in a crisis. The restaurant was clean and the floors were gorgeous!
My friend and I had the redfish. I had mine with crab. It came with sautéed spinach and a cream sauce. It was scrumptious. For desert I had the banana pudding. Felt like I was eating bananas and clouds. It tasted a bit more healthy than I like deserts to be ;-) until I got to the crust. Oh. My. God! Not sure I would order it again, but I was having such a pleasurable experience, I ate the entire thing.
This restaurant is definitely on my list of faves!
Everything was amazing!!!
We really appreciate the special attention provided by our host - Dave!
Bday dinner was great.
