Really excited about the fried chicken special but found the $40 to be a little steep for just chicken. Nonetheless, ordered 2 for the table because i really talked up the restaurant and kids were excited to eat fried chicken. Nice, crispy and flavorful. Potatoe salad was also very good. I did have to return a thigh because it was bloody :(
Outstanding!! Definitely a favorite
Heard good things about the place which two different friends recommended. Thought the menu would please the entire family. It did! Drinks and appetizers came out quickly. We had a little bit of a wait for the entrees to come to the table and mine was not super hot so that was disappointing. All five of us enjoyed our choices from the pineapple upside down cornbread to the bbq short ribs and chicken and waffles.
This a GREAT place to celebrate birthdays and special events with those you love. The menu serves delicious food but not a large selection. If you have a persnickety guest, be and wise and have them check the menu beforehand. I found the noise level too high to hold a conversation with anyone across the table.
We love Meril and have been since it reopened following the Pandemic. But last night the value just wasn't what it has been in the past. Small portions for the price, particularly the daily lamb chop special. Don't expect to share the pineapple upside down cornbread with more than 2 people for sure.
Wonderful family time before kids leave for college. Amazing food and service
The service was impeccable. There was a team of people waiting on us which made our visit to the restaurant pleasant. The lamb chops were extremely tender, the best I have ever tasted. Our small plates of trout deviled eggs with caviar, spinach and artichoke flatbread, and Korean BBQ wings were delicious. The coconut rum punch had just the right amount of fruitiness and not too sweet. The wine choices were very good and there were plenty of reasonably priced choices.
Our party of four was very impressed and we will return again the next time we visit NOLA.
My husband and I went to Meril during the Coolinary event. Everything tasted good but the portions were small. We left hungry and made food when we got home. Our servers were prompt with filling waters and clearing plates but seemed disengaged. I can buy a weeks worth of groceries and alcohol for what I spent on one meal.
The food was great and the service was excellent. I would definitely return when I'm in New Orleans again.
Awesome experience! I went for my blueberry dinner and was so pleased with the service, as well as the ambience!
First time at Meril. Excellent dinner for four ppl. We ordered devil eggs and octopus for appetizers, main course - burger, chicken, and pasta special...all outstanding and well seasoned. We ended the night with key lime tart, ice cream and a salt iron skillet cookie and ice cream. excellent service.
Absolutely amazing! Per usual! We sat at the kitchen bar and it was an amazing experience.
Great experience! Highly recommend. Baked Oysters and Baked cheese with capanota were my favorites. Husband had Swordfish, said it was perfect. Fish taco was okay. Not great, get something else. Happy Hour Old Fashions did not disappoint! :) And our server, Lauren, was fantastic.
Staff is always friendly and attentive. Food is delicious!
Always a fun setting and great service by the staff!
Very nice. Food and drinks are very good. Enjoyed the whole experience
We really enjoyed our visit. Food was excellent,,,loved the oysters. Service staff great. Best dinner we had this whole week.
The hospitality of the staff was on point. Everyone gave a welcoming greeting. Our server Sadiki was helpful to us when we needed suggestions for our meal as tourists. I came for my birthday dinner and I enjoyed everything we ate.
There was something special about that cotton candy. I want their secret.
Excellent service. Everyone enjoyed their meal. Definitely want to return abs try more.
Love the wise guy pizza
Although the state mask mandate has been lifted, Meril required us to wear one while we waited in the empty restaurant for them to very slowly set our table. Once we were sat directly behind the host stan we were allowed to remove it. Seems very silly to have us wear one when we all rode together and work together and there were no other patrons in the building. I didn't even have to put it on when I was leaving the building. I won't be returning until they acknowledge masks should be optional to the human being.
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.
Terrific and our waiter was amazing! The mask requirement was annoying, however. The mayor is not requiring it by law.
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!
