First visit and will be my last visit. Stuffed chicken was hard and not tasty. Mashed potatoes bland. Lemon drop horrible, dark and dusty decor. Back Stairs iced over and very hazardous and yes staff was aware.. the food was substandard, not as good as even red lobster for 3 times the cost. Blah....I left there hungry for a quality meal.

I always love coming to Meriwether's. I've been going there for over 30 years. I still love the ambiance, the food, and the service. The fish is always fresh. The preparations are varied and delicious.

The food is consistently good, tho I did have a minor issue with my crab cake starter—nothing that affected the taste. I can’t get enough of the teacup bread! And our server was so great. I wish I could remember her name.

I took my dad here for his 90th birthday, he and my mother used to go often when we were younger. The food was good for the most part. The potatoes were cold, the filet was a perfect medium rare. The waitress brought out a birthday dessert for him which was nice. I would go back again.

Dinner was very slow to arrive even though the restaurant was almost empty. Food was very overdone. The wonderful tea cup rolls they used to have are now just white rolls in a tea cup, although the butter spread was very good. Waitress was pleasant, but slow and didn't Costco back to see if we needed anything else. Overall, not a good experience, we won't be back.

Meriwether's is an excellent fine-dining restaurant. I have been going there for many years. I have taken customers for lunch, had birthday lunches and dinners, girlfriend lunches and drinks and appetizers. They have a diverse menu and everything is delicious, especially their "Teacup Bread," which is baked in a tea cup and comes standard at every table. Overall, the atmosphere is very elegant.

The food was good, the service was good, but we were put in an area where they have just varnish the tables and it ruined one of our friends sweater. They said that they would replace it if necessary. So we’re still waiting to see what the outcome was. They did not come up our meal though or do anything special they just said they would try to correct their mistake.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Merriweather's after many years of absence. With our OpenTable reservation, we were seated right away. We sat in the fireplace room which was small and became noisy after filling up. Amy, our server, was engaging and knowledgeable. The food was excellent - they even gave us extra potatoes instead of veggies. We will be back.

Our lunch was perfect, a wonderful balance of amazing food and service. They seated us next to the fireplace, which was perfect because it was a very cold day. Their warm bread, the bronzed salmon and the special of the day, blackened whitefish, were delicious. Everyone loved their food!
I had never been there before, but I will definitely be going back!

Great food and service. However, the $9 Titos and tonics were a bunch of ice and tonic - extremely dissatisfied in the drinks. When you're paying for a nice night out, you expect everything to be top notch; it wasn't.

Very slow moving experience. Server was slow.Sat at the table for 10 minutes before he showed up. Food took forever. Bad ceased salad, no croutons. Buffalo shrimp app and bread very good. Dry prime rib and over cooked filet. No excuse, place was empty. Server blamed wait on kitchen. He probably forgot to enter our order also. Sat down at 2:30, left at 4:30. Much too long for just 3 people. Server terrible. Manager not dressed professionally. Will not visit again even though it's close to my mother's new house.

We visited Meriwether's back in February. It was our first time dining there and my family and I truly enjoyed it. With Christmas quickly approaching, we threw some names around for our Holiday dinner. Meriwether's quickly became a finalist and the overall choice for this year. From the beginning to the dessert , we enjoyed the overall experience.
