Great place but found that the back room was a little challenging for a business meeting due to the noise level. Next time I’ll request a table near the front.

Wife & I enjoyed Sunday dinner where the filet and halibut were excellent. Service was superb and the ambiance quite the way we like it. Another great Landry associated restaurant.

Good while good, was not nearly as good as my last visit about three weeks ago. Had the exact same thing and all around not as good.

Ordered the Halibut at $39 and it came so tough and overcooked it was inedible. They offered to make anther one...why would I want what they cannot cook properly. I chose the whitefish instead. They offered apologies but still charged for the entire meal, no offer of a free dessert, compensation, nothing! Really it should have been removed from the bill as it was entirely the kitchens fault.
Not acceptable for a well established place who specialized in fish and my wife and I essentially ate dinner
at two separate times. Also the coconut basmati rice tasted as if it was sitting for a long time warming... it just was "leftover" and not appealing at all.
Sorry but expected so much more from Meriwethers.

Excellent for a special occasion dinner. Service and food are top notch. Noise level was low. Decor a bit dated but very nice. A bit pricy but not over the top, worth it. Teacup bread is outstanding.

My husband and I had prime rib which in the past has been pretty good but this time the quality of meat was not has good. Hopefully just a one time mistake 🙏🏾

We had Prix Fixe selections, which was a factor. She had salmon, which came with some vegetables and rice. She gave it all a thumbs up except the rice, not her favorite starch. My prime rib was tender and tasty, but it came with only some smashed potatoes that were OK. I was surprised there was no vegetable. PF did not allow substitutions, so she couldn't swap out the rice and I couldn't trade potatoes for a vegetable, more healthful for me. The service was superb and the atmosphere pleasant.

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.

Extremely slow service: waited 20 min for waiter to take order; took a very long time for food to arrive; out of 2 main menu items; food wasn’t hot when arrived; took forever to bring the bill. It was a total disaster.

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!

After a 10 year lapse, we returned and were delighted to see no significant change. The same tea cups, excellent menu at reasonable prices and the same decor with tablecloths. We plan on eating there much more often.
