We had not been to Meril in a couple of years, but we won't wait that long to come back. The food, cocktails and wine were amazing. Try the Korean chicken wings, short ribs and tuna bundles. The burger is also amazing, and we love their fries. I also love the atmosphere. It's so lively and full of energy. the open kitchen was perfect on a cold night here in New Orleans, and who doesn't love champagne, sparklers and cotton candy popping up all over the restaurant for people celebrating anything and everything!!! We had an awesome night!!!
Meril is upbeat and modern style restaurant. They play up to date music and provide a great experience and ambience. The food is great and is priced reasonably. If you have Bday that show you a great experience with a nice desert treat and deliver it in style.
I expected more! Everything was pretty subpar. The service was good enough but the food didn’t seem fresh and wasn’t flavorful. I had been to Meril in 2018 and had a positive experience, but something has changed. Treat yourself to a meal elsewhere.
I appreciated being able to reserve counter seating.
Meril is always good
Birthday! It was great
We are locals and so fortunate to have this fantastic bistro in our Warehouse District neighborhood. We were greeted and seated in a friendly, professional manner and our wait team of Lana and Kevin were very attentive throughout our meal. Our Manhattan and Prosecco cocktails were great, along with small plate appetizers of Meatballs and Deviled Eggs; the Gumbo, Strawberry Salad, Brussels Sprouts and Fish of the Day were all superb, and complemented nicely with a value priced Terrazas Malbec. We enjoyed a seasonal dessert, a King Cake Tres Leches, a wonderful finish to another outstanding dining experience at Meril. Thank you!
Food was good, waiting staff was great, dining room was cold.
Very enjoyable! We had five of our grandchildren... five years old and under and Meril's was very accommodating. The service was great! All of our grandchildren loved their meal...as well as the grownups!!
Had a bachelors dinner for our best friend. The food was amazing, the service was impeccable and the ambience was excellent.
Excellent service and very accommodating! Food incredible, great value overall!
Awesome service! Really good food.
I've been there a few times now, but this time was different , I didn't care for the food at all. The waitress was wonferful.
Matt and Caleb took care of us. We greatly enjoyed our drinks and food. The Korean Chicken Wings were a favorite and I finished my salad for the first time ever. Matt suggested a tasty mocktail for me and made sure it was replaced as needed. :)
A surprise menu and service made for a real pleasure in dining.
Place was very cold and we complained about it and nothing was done. Ate in my winter coat! So was everyone else in the resturaunt.
There were some highs and lows in both the service and the food. Don't go expecting an upscale experience.
The ambiance was very nice! The servers were very nice and pleasant as well. Overall I would definitely come back.
Brunch with family and before Saints. meril has become one of our favorite hang out spots for the atmosphere, drinks and of course the food. Try the Korean Chicken Wings on the snack menu amazing!
Meril was out of two cocktails I wanted and an entree. The place was packed and crazy loud. The desserts were sickeningly sweet, looked good but sweet, not flavor prevailed. The menu has changed and their best items are gone. I'll wait til the pandemic is over to eat there again.
Very nice, great food and service.
Great gluten free menu, waiters are very well educated in gluten allergies!
Pregame for Sugar Bowl! Love the flatbreads! Great service and walkable to the dome
Great place w an awesome vibe
Chris was a fantastic server. The food was spectacular.
Good food and service but very loud it was hard to hear our conversation at the table.
The meal started out well with the melted cheese appetizers. The fish was so overcooked, I was shocked. We asked if they can remake it promptly and the answer was no. Disappointed experience.
In NOLA for Sugar Bowl & wanted to have an Emeril dining experience. Had the richest most flavorful gumbo ever. The gnudi with locally produced mushrooms & delicata squash with truffle ricotta… unbelievable. If more time in town would eat there again for sure!
We had reservations and was seated before the time! Food came out very quickly and was delicious! Our server was great and the atmosphere was fun!
Meril was overall a disappointment. Food was average. The mahi-mahi portion was very small. Collard greens over cooked. Korean ribs over salted. I was looking forward to an Emeril restaurant. So, disappointed.
Meril is always a fan favorite and when I had to pick a spot to have a birthday dinner it was top on my list. You can't go wrong here!
The food and service were awesome. The staff was attentive the food delicious and unique. It was our anniversary and they made us feel special
Family celebration- we tried many of the dishes (shared family style). Lana & Caleb were excellent- catered to all of our requests and the food was perfect! Can’t wait to go back!
Outstanding food and service. The absolute best experience I have had in a while. Thank you
My husband and I absolutely loved everything about our experience. The food and service were amazing!
Great tuna wraps and the “surprise” for our anniversary was super!
Great service, fish special was delicious and the atmosphere was enjoyable. Definitely would revisit.
They forgot my nieces food order so that was a bit of a bummer and it took a while to make it after the fact. Also when they brought out my daughters dessert she didn’t get the fanfare other birthday recipients got. It was quite lackluster and I believe it was because the kitchen was closing and the servers were ready to get out of there.
