Really great experience - amazing food and wine was great! Bathrooms were super clean. Will definitely return here again!
Meril is great and casual and a new twist on what we typically find at Emerils restaurants. We loved it!
Food was ok, nothing to write home about. French fries came out cold. Cheese for dipping sourdough is Brie ???
Ugh so annoyed!!!! Went on Paella Night and they were OUT of Paella! Came all the way across town for nothing. Stayed and ate food was overall good just was not what I wanted. If you are going to have a themed night you should insure that you can make it through the day. They were also out of about 5 other items on their menu.
Sound level was outrageous....this coupled with the masks made it virtually impossible to hear the waiter or for him to hear us. Spent the night pointing and making big gestures.
I would recommend but not to someone trying to have nice date or evening out at a restaurant. This is more like a loud bustling place to go for dinner with friends to catch up. I have been here before during the day and enjoyed it going in the evening is something completely different.
The food, drinks and service were very good but it was so loud that it was difficult to speak to people at your table.
Delicious. Everything was yummy. The restaurant was well spaced out and felt comfortable. It was a little loud, but overall, great restaurant.
Eclectic menu typical of Emeril; element of surprise in every visit to his restaurants. Would recommend
Great food. Nice people. Loud. Some delay at getting entre. Food worth it.
Great food and staff definitely going back.
Our Mother’s Day dinner was amazing. The food was excellent Ans the staff was outstanding, they went above and beyond to accommodate our needs and made our mother’s day very special.
Mother’s Day brunch...After waiting quite some time for the food to arrive neither the soup or fries were hot. I expressed my displeasure to the waiter who immediately returned with replacements. I greatly appreciate his quick response to our issue. He did not seem bothered by it (as some might) but only apologetic for the problem.
The atmosphere was great for a night out. The food and drinks were great. If your celebrating a birthday, the cotton candy and sparkler will top your celebration off!
In town to see friends and celebrate graduation from LSU
We'll definitely be coming back to Meril next time we're in the city! They made my friend's birthday very special, the food and drinks were all top-notch.
The service was wonderful but the food is a tremendous letdown from the usual Emeril standard.
Excellent as always! Food was delicious and service was outstanding.
Amazing restaurant!!!!! Damian, our waiter at the bar was exceptional. Food was excellent and the ambiance was alive.
Can’t wait to go back!!
Everything we ordered was delicious. The atmosphere and service were also great. Will definitely be going back on our next trip to New Orleans.
Servers were very professional and friendly. Food was great. Table spacing was good.
Food and service was excellent, however the restaurant was so loud we were basically shouting at eat other to talk. Would not recommend for a date night.
I always love dining at Meril's. This was my first time outside on patio. I really enjoyed being outside on patio.
Presentation, flavor, service—all were outstanding!
Great place - always exceptional tasty food / friendly staff - service never disappoints!!
Awesome & will definitely return when in New Orleans
Very happening place! Food was good and our service was great. I would definitely recommend if in New Orleans
Food quality was poor. Service was slow. Food orders wrong. Dessert came at 4 different times for 8 people.
Food was wonderful and inventive. Service was exceptional. A great experience!
Limited menu. Good, just not a memorial experience. Clean, nice ambiance.
The paella was exceptional, so were the oysters and the corn bread!
We did 3 little plates First tomato & strawberries, then we ordered crawfish flatbread & 5 red shrimp in a delicious sauce We told our waitress that the sauce & loaf of bread would be delicious too. You got 4 small pieces of bread with the 5 shrimp. She asked if we like a little more bread to enjoy the sauce. We were so appreciative until it arrived. Different bread & almost burned. Then to top it off we were charged additional for the 3 pieces of bread Very surprising for sure. We had dessert & hubby had coffee We look forward to our visits to Merils I’ve also learned that staff has been taught to grab plates & glasses before you are done enjoying. I did request to leave our plate for another minute. Food was delicious. Can’t wait to return. We refer folks to come see y’all too. Thanks
Always my favorite for gatherings with friends. Lots of options, perfect portion sizes, great service. I’m a big fan of Meril’s.
Food and service wonderful as always. Delicious Crawfish Boil omelette!!
I made my reservations for 1:00 and our table wasn’t ready until 1:20. Our server didn’t come by the table to take our drink order until 1:30. We didn’t get our meal until 2:10. We were never offered refill for our soft drinks. The food was mediocre. With soooo many great restaurants in our city, You cannot afford to be mediocre. T felt very touristy ( trap) type of place. No thank you.
The restaurant was extremely loud. We waited over an hour for our food, and it was cold.
Always one of our favorite restaurants!! Didn’t disappoint!!!
Great atmosphere... thoroughly enjoyed crunching with friends...will definitely be back...loved the strawberry sangria
Always a great meal here at MERIL. Leaders were all jumping in to assist front line workers. Nicely done!!
Our first visit to Meril and we were totally impressed. I had a 9:45pm reservation and arrived 1 1/2 hours early, hoping to catch an open seat at the bar. The bar was being used for reservations that evening. However, after waiting for about 5 minutes, they offered us outdoor seating. The waitstaff was exceptional. I wish I remembered the young lady’s name that led the service at our table. Everything from cocktails to appetizers to entrees were spectacular. We were interrupted by a several block power outage before we were able to order dessert. Our credit card information was taken and our tab cleared the following day. We will return to Meril at every visit opportunity.
Power went for 20 block area just as we were being served. Wait team of Cooper and Christopher were great.
