The cozy fireplace and historic atmosphere make this a lovely spot for winter brunch. We both enjoyed our food, although we couldn't help but notice that the prices were considerably higher here than at most of our other favorite and equally delicious brunch spots. We had to wave down our server to ask for everything, i.e. condiments, a glass of water, and a coffee refill, rather than being offered.

Beautiful venue. Excellent ambience.
Charcuterie board was generous and very good. The focaccia was also excellent.

The highlight of the meal was the winter risotto with crab. This was prepared perfectly and was a glorious, delicate balance of subtle flavors.

Unfortunately, the pork chop was overdone, dry, and a real disappointment. The scallops were good but slightly undercooked.
A side order of grits was absolutely inedible.

Overall a good night but with very disappointing main courses and don’t even think about the grits!!

Second year in a row we have dined at this restaurant for Valentine’s Day. Also the second year in a row the food was subpar. The steak was between mildly warm and cool. I even asked for mine to se sent back and warmed up and it still came back cool. We also felt rushed. Our salad came out when we were still eating the appetizer and then the main course came out when we were still eating salads. A meal for two was almost $300!! Will not be dining here again on Valentine’s Day. Normal dinners have always been solid.

We came the day before Valentine's day, and it was exactly what we wanted. Cozy, intimate, beautiful and relaxed. A New menu with unique dishes that kept us wanting more. So we ordered an appetizer, main course and dessert. We can't wait to come back! I Love how fresh and local the produce and meat were too!!!

Been here many times and always a great experience. The seasonal menu does wonders even in the winter. We tend to go early in the dinner hour so it is quieter and less crowded for romantic dinners. Highly recommended and consistently A+

Meriwether’s is a great place for a beautiful evening with friends/family, to celebrate an occasion, to meet a client. The food is always special, particularly as they have their own farm for fresh ingredients. Ambiance is really enjoyable, several rooms each with a different feel and outdoor dining when the weather is good.

Great service ambiance and food. They made me a custom vegan dinner and it was delicious. I was not vey impressed with the cocktails. We had lemon drops and they were very small didn’t fill the martini glass and weak on alcohol. Otherwise a wonderful dining experience.

Outstanding food for a Sunday brunch! Freshly prepared and good size portions, with very good service! It was rather crowded with a waiting list when we got there (that right there speaks volumes), so I'm glad I made a reservation!

I was given gift certificate to Meriwether's for Christmas. So a friend and I came for lunch. It is a beautiful venue, and smelled awesome when we walked in. We were seated right away and a waitress took our order for coffee & water within a few minutes. Our waitress also was the waitress for the bar which was right next to our booth.
For the price of the food we expected amazing quality. My friend had the quiche which she really enjoyed. The salad that went with it was fresh, crisp and had new veggies (I believe one was a watermelon radish).
I have food issues so I chose the hamburger. The pepper sauce was good - it had a bite but didn't build. That's the best I can say for it. It wasn't temperature hot, nor were the fries. The few fries I was able to eat before they got cold were tasty, but cold fries - ick.
On to dessert. My friend had creme brule and I had the apple pie. She said hers was "good", but it didn't live up to the image Meriwether's portrays. My pie was tasty. But the crust was tough - I wasn't able to cut it with my fork. BUT the caramel sauce was AWESOME!
I had $$ left on the gift cert so I got 3 batches of cookies. What a disappointment! The brownies are rock hard and the other 4 are extremely small for costing almost $2 each.
We had a great time, despite the lacking in the food and our waitress was so busy elsewhere . . .
Oh, the coffee was good.

We had a late lunch on a weekday. The Kale salad with chicken was fantastic and my friend had bolognese sauce and meatballs. The food and service was fantastic but I would say the prices are a little high. My salad was $24 I think and there wasn’t that much chicken on it. But it was delicious!

Going in winter probably isn’t the best way to get farm to table fare, so maybe take this with a grain of salt. Speaking of salt, there was a LOT of it on the kale. It was about the level of a potato chip. The scallops were excellent and the salad was nice too. The price point was high enough to make one expect something pretty exceptional. I didn’t really find this to be the case given the stiff competition for creative awesome dining in Portland.

Seems like the service at this once great restaurant is no longer excellent - it’s not terrible - just not great. There seemed to be an attitude that we were an inconvenience. Also, no water was ever brought to the table, and while coffee was refilled there was an unawareness that we would also need to be more cream (one of my pet peeves: if 3 people say they’d like coffee with cream and you bring one tiny container of cream your guests shouldn’t have to proactively ask for and wait for more cream - instead wait staff should either automatically bring more or at least offer it).

Food was great as always. One of my favorite restaurants in general, especially in nice weather when you can sit outside. Today's experience was not a success though. Despite having had a reservation for months on OpenTable, we were told a party of 5 could not be accommodated in the dining room (ever??). We were given a combo booth/table in the bar that would have been fine except that one seat was facing blaring sunlight from the window, so we ended up crowding in together on the banquette. It was not comfortable or enjoyable. I'm surprised they didn't advise us of this problem in advance. In the past they've been very good about calling or texting when I had requested outside seating and it wasn't available, for example.

We had brunch here on New Year's eve and were absolutely thrilled with the food, service and ambiance. We sat downstairs near the fireplace. The waiter was attentive but not intrusive. We had Biscuits and Gravy, Steak and Eggs, Corn Beef Hash and the basic breakfast. All were perfect and tasty - particularly the Corn Beef Hash which sometimes can be very salty. We also had Bloody Marys which were prepared deliciously and a cranberry infused cocktail which in it's delivery was like performance art. Highly recommend.
