Excellent service. Everyone enjoyed their meal. Definitely want to return abs try more.
Love the wise guy pizza
I have long anticipated dining at Meril. Unfortunately, it was not like I expected at all. The baked cheese appetizer was decent and my friends seemed to enjoy the Korean wings they ordered as a starter. My entree, however, was not good. I had the half chicken under a brick and it was "meh". I tried a little piece of my friend's "Wise Guy" flatbread and it was good.
My bit of satisfaction came from the lushie. If you choose to go here, definitely get one (or two). As for the food, I have no solid recommendation because most of it was subpar.
Birthdays are the best at Meril!
Merils had delicious food, impeccable service, and a comfortable environment. This restaurant did a fabulous job of reflecting the values and qualities of Emeril Lagasse himself: refined comfort food surrounded by good company in a beautiful restaurant.
I’ve been a few times and I’ll definitely be back. The food, service, ambiance, and music were all on point.
The place was nice and food was good but from Emeril I expected a little more. The portions are just tiny .
Very professional service. Nice atmosphere with open kitchen.
Well we are there three times in two days. That should say something!!!! Truly outstanding experience from stepping in the door the first time to the very last bite of Banana Creme Pie! The entire staff made us feel so special, the food was excellent…again we went three times in two days. On top of the excellent food and service, the pricing was very reasonable.
Kaleb the server was excellent. Food was great. Going back on Wednesday for the bbq shrimp.
The food was great, the music was excellent, the service has room for improvement, but overall it was an awesome experience. I’ll definitely be back!
Whole experience was really good. Booked for a table of 6 about 2 hrs prior to reservation time. They got us right in, food was excellent. Watched the end of the nba finals game in the bar right after dinner.
Awesome food, environment, and service! Will definitely be back!!
WOW! Didn't really know what to expect, but Meril was pretty perfect. They managed to pull off a very come as you are atmosphere with fine-dining food and service. It feels light and fun yet the dishes are seriously creative and delicious. Really enjoyed our experience!
Another great meal from an Emeril restaurant
All I can say is OMG!!!! Amazing from beginning to end!!! They made our anniversary so special for us. The food was outstanding. The appetizer was AMAZING! Dinner was AMAZING! And the reason we went, Banana Cream Pie!!!! I have died and gone to food heaven! Thank you Chef Bergon and staff. Truly the best meal ever!
Fantastic for a moms night out!
Our food and service was fabulous! The drinks were yummy too!!
Service was great. The food was amazing. I highly recommend.
Wonderful experience. The food and service was great.
Sandy Odom was excellent in helping us get our reservation. Our servers were excellen. Thanks!
The evening was great! We celebrated a dear friend's birthday and everything was prefect! The staff made great suggestions on meal & drink selections. I have a gluten intolerance which was easily accommodated as well.
Horrible experience, where do I start. Here's the shirt version....
Our Waiter, Allen, was not attentive at all. We literally watched him as he was much more attentive to other guests. Took forever before he took our order, brought us water, we never received straws even though we asked twice, so we had to ask another server.
I watched as my cocktail sat on the counter for about 10 mins before it was brought to our table. We attempted to order the chicken special but he told us they were out. However, a table of 6 people was seated after us and ordered several plates of chicken.
Took forever to receive our food, which we were not impressed, the steak frites were the exception. Alan never checked on us, and this is not an exaggeration, we literally had to wave him down when needed. We of course shared our experience with the Mgr, Marcus, and he apologized while giving us our bill, stating that he will use this as a training experience for Allen. Now why should we have to pay for a training experience????
We flew to NO for the night, just to dine here for our 27th anniversary as this place came recommended. So, we are beyond frustrated! We visit NO all the time and know for certain we can get a better experience at so many other restaurants. What a horrible experience! You must do better. I entertain clients over dinner and so glad this was not a business meal. I would've been so embarrassed.
Great food. The fried chicken entree was spectacular and enough for two.
We had an amazing time. We made our reservation for 5:30, and took our 3 boys. The restaurant was energetic and lively. The staff was so nice. Our boys had an amazing time trying new foods. Overall it was great.
Cooper was so fun & great for putting up with our rambunctious crew! The food was delicious & the atmosphere was perfect
Stopped by for Sunday Brunch. Had a delicious Spanish Omelette and biscuits. Great service as always.
We had an amazing baby shower brunch here! The staff was so accommodating and went above and beyond to make sure we were happy with our table. The food was amazing and the service was top notch.
They had nothing we asked for and they weren’t very accommodating. The food we had to settle for was so-so.
Best overall meal in New Orleans
Excellent food and service. One of our favorites when we visit the City.
Great food and atmosphere. Never had a bad server at Meril’s and Lauren was top notch!
We’ve been to Meril many times and always enjoy the food and the ambiance. The service was great as well. The only complaint I had this this time was the portion size of my meal. I ordered the linguini and clams (which were listed on the menu at $17 but was $18 on the bill) and for that price I received what looked like a small soup bowl with about five or six bites of food - that’s it! My family and I really like this place but they need to do a much better job with their portion sizes. It is, after all, an Emeril restaurant and his reputation is on the line.
Our server, Kee was amazing! She really made our experience the best! Will definitely request her next time we visit :)
Excellent food and service. Wonderful sense of community among the staff, everyone seemed happy to be working there
Everything was outstanding both waitstaff and food was 10 out of 10 stars
Excellent food and service, fun birthday experience
It was my granddaughter’s birthday. Although a special desert was provided, a cake would have been better appreciated even at extra cost. That way the entire party could have enjoyed it.
Great service, think tapas bar type food…. wait staff was very knowledgeable of the menu… my husband and I are not big fans of salmon but our waiter recommended it and we went for it… it was awesome!!! We told them
It was our anniversary and they brought us a sparkling cotton candy tray!!! We will be back!!!!
Fantastic service and a great meal.
