It's a quiet place, old fashioned looking, but good for a business conversation, with tasty food, though a rather limited selection, and rather expensive for lunch entrees. I had the salmon with vegetables, and that was excellent.
The service was somewhat slow; had to ask another waiter for water, ask for the check, after waiting a while. But our server was also friendly and knowledgeable when she was there. So a mixed review, but knowing all that, it worked well for this lunch business meeting.

The food and drinks here are truly delicious and our server was super friendly and helpful. It did take quite a while to get our drinks and food, though, so if you want a quick dinner this isn't the place. We were truly impressed overall.

The food was very good and so was the atmosphere but our server sucked. She kept coming back to the table for us to fill out the bill with the tip. I usually RIP very well but not on my card. I was going to leave her a tip in cash , in addition to me rounding the bill up. But after she got an attitude, I didnt and I will never go back. Thst was very unprofessional

Everything about this experience was nothing less than amazing!!!! The door was opened for me as I walked in. The host greeted me immediately and was very polite. My waiters never left me needing anything. The food 😩. I don’t even have words to describe. I ate everything on that plate 😂. It was my first time visiting and I’ll definitely be back plenty more times ❤️

Had a business dinner with four people total and it was a good experience. Lots of fish and steak options. We liked the calamari appetizer and the key lime pie which I find disappointing at many restaurants is very good... I would give it a 9 out of 10. I will definitely visit this restaurant again when I am in town.

The food was great. The host staff was friendly. The servers, however were inattentive. We were not greeted when we sat down. Another server eventually saw us and provided water. Our real server did apologize, but the service did not improve. Our food took too long and was partially incorrect. I ordered a steak, but was never given a steak knife. I asked for more butter. By the time it arrived, I had completed my meal. My husband ordered potatoes and received rice. When the bill arrived, the server automatically included a tip. We had somewhere else to be so we just left.

The atmosphere is nice. The service was good. The food was overpriced for the quantity and quality. Our fish was dry and I had literally two stalks of asparagus on my plate to go with my bit of rice. I thought it was just me but our whole table was still hungry after lunch.

We had a table of 11 for dinner on a Wednesday night. Our table was set in a separate space and was just perfect! The dinner was for a family get together with out of town family and we had a LOVELY time. We had been looking for a more quiet restaurant where we could talk and not be rushed out the door. Meriwethers filled the bill! The food was delicious - everyone commented on their dinners - and our service was outstanding! Highly recommended!

I took my mother and sister for Mother's Day this past Monday. Our reservation was at 12:30, which I imagine was the lunch rush. While our server was great (very personable), the actual service was very slow. It took a good 20 minutes to even get water! I love the 80s music that played in the background. The bread is AMAZING!!!! We could've filled up on just that. I had the jamabalya. Won't order it again. Not a fan of okra, which isn't even supposed to be in jambalaya. I think they confused jamabalya with gumbo. Anyway, I had a good enough experience to probably go back

Sorry; we have been to this restaurant several times over the years and this was not a satisfactory visit.

Our server was very slow; while other servers were really hustling. We got our bread at the end of the meal, after we asked for it, and others who were there after us had theirs.

Food was good, but very overpriced. My husbands piece of swordfish was very small, although flavorful.

Sad to say, probably won’t return.

We were here on Mother's day, I know it was busy, but I figured a restaurant with a reputation and being around as long as they have, they would breeze through a day like this. We were seated pretty close to our reservation time which I was happy about, but after ordering, it took an hour for our food to arrive. My wife wanted asparagus so for a $1 upcharge she got two spears. It was kind of measly on the plate as the vegetable. My son ordered a bowl of Clam Chowder and requested to get it before the meal, the meal arrived but we had to remind the waiter that he wanted his soup. In a few minutes his soup did arrive (it was quite skimpy for a $7 bowl of soup, we showed the waiter and he brought a small cup of additional soup), buy it tasted bad, like it was from the bottom of a burnt pot. The waiter took it, brought a second bowl and it tasted bad too. They must've added too much liquid smoke to it, my son didn't care for it. Our waiter was nice enough to take the soups off the bill. My Prime Rib was very good.

The date that I was there was Mother's Day (which was a very busy day). We were greeted with complementary valet parking and the doors were opened for us both entering and exiting. We had reservations and were promptly seated and served in a timely method by the welcoming staff. The food was very good and the atmosphere was warm and pleasant. I will definitely return again in the future to enjoy the pleasantries of this restaurant. Thank you for Meriweather's of Southfield for making my Mother's Day pleasurable.

I would recommend Meriwether's based on past visits and on the food which was excellent. However, with the price of the product comes an expected level of service which was sorely lacking. The entire dining experience went on way too long with very long periods where no one was checking on our status or providing an update or explanation for the delay. Based on the expressions at tables that were near ours I believe it was an overall concensus. Mother's Day is a very busy restaurant day but it is not enough reason for the service we did, or in this case did not, receive.

Sometimes even the best restaurants struggle on special days. This was mother's day. We were seated promptly with a reservation, but he wait was very long for our food. The worst part was our server misplaced my credit card & we had to wait almost an hour after eating before it was found. He didn't tell us at first & kept avoiding our table. When I finally got his attention he admitted what was going on. The manager came to our table eventually & was pleasant & apologetic but offered us nothing for the inconveience.

The table next to us saw how we were looking and the lady leaned over and said they could’ve taken her to red lobster instead for mother’s day at least the food is good.
