We were seated near the kitchen and it was fun to see all the stations at work. Wonderful food and great service.
Wonderful food that felt local but elevated. Incredible service from the moment you walk through the door.
Food and staff was outstanding!! I will be back!
Great food , presentation and service! From the minute we stepped in, we were welcomed with smiles. It was refreshing when all staff were kind and ready to help us find a good pick for lunch. The meatball was just about the best I ever tasted .
You desparately need VALET parking!!!!! The service was sort of slow at the begiining. Noisy as hell
Loved the tuna lettuce wraps - crunch & sweetness and such tender fish with the lettuce. Soft shell crab and shrimp taco both incredible and upside down cornbread was a terrific treat. Small plates were wonderful.
I really love this restaurant, but my last visit was disappointing. Mainly, the service was not good. We waited a long time before getting our food, and the server was super busy and not very attentive. And a dish I ordered and enjoyed just a week before (Brussels sprouts) was covered with some cream sauce this time.
One of the best dates my husband and I have been on. Our server was amazing and very attentive, he made sure we were always happy. The food was wonderful! We got a cheese platter and enjoyed trying new cheeses along with some amazing choices of wine
Ryan and Jenae were very pleasant and helpful. We had our 4-year old granddaughter with us, and they made it enjoyable for her.
We ate at the bar but it took forever to get our drink and food orders taken. However the food was outstanding! And our bartender felt really bad once I mentioned that my girlfriend has run a bar in Dallas for 10 years. :)
We were staying in the Central Business / Warehouse District during our first visit to New Orleans. Meril was one of our favorite meals during our stay. The atmosphere was fun, the service was terrific and the food was delicious.
The vegetable side dishes were great. Fun birthday surprise dessert. And loved the chicken andouille gumbo!
Always love Meril! My dad came with us this time, and he can be very picky in what he eats, but our waiter was SO patient and gave him some great options. She deserves a lot of credit!!! Thanks for a great meal.
The food was simply outstanding, but it was so loud we could barely carry on a conversation.
The food was outrageously good. And though they are considered small plates, they weren't so small. The veggie flatbread was probably the best flatbread I've ever had. Meatballs, lasagna and salad were all excellent. The only thing that wasn't amazing was the roasted cauliflower. It was good, just not as amazing as everything else.
Service was good and the prices are reasonable. Highly recommended.
We’ve been to Meril’s many times before and have always had great service and great food. This must have been a off night. The food took almost an hour to come out and was just warm, not hot at all. We were hungry so we ate the food and didn’t say anything. Service was mediocre. One of the waiters seemed exhausted. We will be back, hopefully this was just a one off.
Excellent on all counts. Small plates let you mix and match your whole meal.
We enjoyed our tapas dishes. Only problem was that the breading on the oysters was thick and a bit too salty. Breading needs to be very light on oysters.
Our waiters were excellent and the service was superb.
Amazing food and even better service!
Pasta NERO with lump crabmeat was exceptional!
Very disappointed in our experience. My tuna came out almost frozen. After our waiter took our order, we didn’t see him until he cleared our plates.
Everything we had was delicious! And service was great. Just a little pricy for portion size.
The food was great, the service good but it was so so loud we could not even talk to each other.
Some of the best gluten free eating I’ve ever experienced! Wonderful food, phenomenal service and creative cocktails.
Fabulous food and service. “Small plates” but plenty of food.
Great tapas menu. Lots of variety. We had a very lively, fun waiter who gave us recommendations for other places to see in New Orleans. Would go back in a heartbeat.
Great food ruined by poor service, was extremely slow. Had a reservation... sat 20 mins late and then took an additional 15 minutes to get drinks to the table. (I want to like it but I don't go out to spend nearly 40 minutes waiting to get a drink and seated!!)
Very impressive first visit—attentive service, exciting menu, and spectacular wine pairings. Highly recommend.
Service was very good. Glad that we were warned about many things being "small plates". I was disappointed that my fish was overcooked and somewhat dry.
Nice array of tasty tapas style dishes that served well as appetizers and could have had full dinner just with those. The dinner entree options that we had were unfortunately over/under cooked and over/under seasoned, which was a let down after the fantastic appetizers, but the ambiance and service made it an overall nice time. $$ I expected better quality food for the cost/reputation.
Wonderful experience! We enjoyed the buttermilk biscuit and Spanish shrimp.
This was my first time to New Orleans and this place how the New Orleans upscale feel, look, and food. I will be coming back for round 2.
Small plates shared by the table were fabulous! Yellowfin tuna wraps, smoked fish dip, Flatbread pizza , Korean fried chicken as well as cocktails!
I was extremely please that they did not hesitate to seat our party even though we were missing one, unlike Peche, whose host would not seat us until everyone was present.
Will definitely return!!
I had amazing experience and everyone was so helpful and attentive!! Food was outstanding as well!!
First time here. The front staff and the wait staff were excellent. The food was good, but not memorable. I hate to say it that way, but it just seemed like another “small plate”, over charge establishment. I would still recommend it though
New Orleans has a lot of great restaurant options, Meril is not one of them. Food was awful, service was horrible. The decor and restaurant was nice laid out and decorated. Save your money and go to a better restaurant.
One of favorite restaurants! Staff and food are outstanding
My only problem with our evening was that this was a special occasion... birthday. This was indicated on the reservation as well as at the hostess station, but our server knew nothing about it. It had to be mentioned to our server at the table (surprise spoiler). The food and atmosphere were wonderful.
The food and service was outstanding! We chose dishes from the shareable side, and every dish was amazing! Desserts too! Try the lemon ice box pie-yum!
we come to new orleans every fall. discovered meril last year. had to come back again this year. will eat here everytime we visit new orleans
Typical Emeril’s experience - excellent service with constant attention, delicious food and creative surprises. Great, great wine list and extensive menu. It’ll take quite a few visits to sample them all. A sacrifice we’ll gladly make!
