Seated right away, waitress was very friendly and attentive. Food was delicious and served hot. We had the special three course meal they were offering to Landry Club Members and each course was brought out with perfect timing between each. We did not feel rushed and were able to have an enjoyable leisurely meal.

Our food was great. We had the Charley's Bucket for two. Our server Marva was phenomenal also. She was funny, attentive, and very courteous. Our food mishap was handled swiftly by the manager when we were missing our shrimp from our meal. Great dining experience from start to finish.

What a disappointment! Could have chosen to eat anywhere in Metro Detroit on a Saturday night and any other Landry's restaurant but chose Meriwethers. I've enjoyed in the past and have been coming here for years. Tonights experience was disgraceful. Apparently a wedding was going on and although the restaurant was relatively empty, they just could not keep up. Brought a family member and had raved about the "teacup bread"- only none was to be found, despite our being in the restaurant for 2 hours- and despite manager stating it is made "several times a night." Waitress apologized for the service in advance, however, had I known the appetizer would come out with the salad, I would have not ordered it. Next time, close the restaurant for a private party if you don't have the manpower. I could have accepted all of the above, however, but when my "healthy" option broiled whitefish was brought smothered in butter and I sent it back to be recooked dry and "blackened"- it literally reappeared not more than 3 minutes later. Sorry Meriwethers, hard to believe it wasn't just dried off and replated. Will never be back!

We were given a table right by the door although we were celebrating a special occasion. The service was extremely inefficient and slow. For example, with an order of crab legs, we weren’t given tools to crack them or get the meat out. We had to ask for them. The waiter said the line was short after we waited over 30 minutes for our entrees. Then we had to wait again for our check. Very disappointed.

We were placed in Mel’s section. He told us he was busy but not too busy to take care of us. He really WAS too busy to take care of us but for some reason when he got slammed we weren’t shifted to one of the other servers who weren’t as busy. As a result, we waited 20 mins for Mel to return to take our order and then, in order to make that happen, we had to get up and walk over to Mel to get his attention to get him to take our order. He was apologetic, overly so. And, he gave us a whole bit about everyone needing to work once as a server to understand the challenges of the job (some of us actually had done that work, but that’s beside the point when the service is below what we’ve come to expect from Meriwether’s). All we wanted to do was to get back to the discussion we had been having the 20 minutes we waited but he kept talking. Finally we had to be blunt. After all of that, he still got one of the orders wrong. Another server brought our food and asked us if we needed something else, we did and asked but she didn’t follow through, it wasn’t her fault since she wasn’t our designated server (I’ve had her before and she’s fantastic). We’d come back, for sure because we really like Meriwether’s and have always had excellent service especially from the female servers, but we’d object to being seated in Mel’s section.

This was a great place to have a group for dinner. They accommodated us well, service was excellent, and food was good too. Especially the prime rib. Great location for people who have family located all around metro Detroit. This is a great central location.

Nice atmosphere. Excellent wine list. I didn’t enjoy the fact that we had to constantly pour our own wine after the first serving.

Food was excellent.

Marvelous, interesting food and the best waiter I've ever had. The prices are high (only getting less than 1/2 a glass of Chardonnay for $12....) but it's really beautiful and delicious. More of a "special occasion" place because dinner cost us $96 for 2 people. (We usually spend about $30-40.) (We don't really drink).

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.

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.

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.
