I’d suggest Meyhouse to anyone looking for a terrific dining experience. My family would definitely come again.

    We’ve been introducing visiting family and local friends to Meyhouse’s two locations for months now. Haven’t had anything we didn’t like. Very pleasant, helpful wait staff and ambiance also. We tried the Little in the Middle dinners for the first time and were thrilled by the experience. Lots of variety, and very good portions…and again, NOTHING we didn’t like. Bravo, and rest assured that we’ll be back again…soon!

    We are repeat customer but this was Valentine's day .... At over $400 for 2 with prix fix menu and just 3 glasses of wine in total (not each), that was excessive. Other that that: good food, service, ambiance, etc...

    Meyhouse is a buzzy, festive, restaurant that tries to be elegant however the service is struggling to keep up with its vibe. We ordered a bottle of white wine that was brought to us at room temperature in an ice bucket so the first pour was both surprising and disappointing. Service was delivered pleasantly, but the table sat crowded with empty dishes during the mezze course. We also were seated next to the order input station with its broken trim that threatened to fall off during the meal if knocked. The food happily was very good, but for the price point the restaurant needs to deliver on ambiance and service as well.

    This was our first time here on the recommendation of a friend. Our server Ayse was excellent, She was very knowledgeable of the food and gave us great suggestions. We were very happy with everything. We had the a few cold and hot smaller items and split the main entre. Everything tasted delicious. The staff was super attentive, everything from water refills to taking away empty plates to bringing new silverware for our next courses. We will definately be back

    I never go out anymore because I’m always underwhelmed or disappointed…Meyhouse is on the top of my recommendations list and we will definitely be back. I can’t remember the last time I had such a great meal in a local restaurant! And such great service! Randy was our server. His menu suggestions and drink pairings were spot on. Every drink, dish, and portion sizes were perfection. I can’t wait to go back.

    The food was excellent but the service was very lacking. Our server took forever to take our order, seemed to run around in circles and forgot our drinks until we reminded him half way through our meal. The food was good and all dishes were amazing but the service and ambiance didn’t add up to the price.

    I was so excited to see a new jazz club in downtown Palo Alto. The music with Michael O'Neil and Friends was outstanding. The vibe was great! The food was quite good. The service was spotty. They have too many tables crammed into too small a space and staff could not get around and there were not enough. I hope they will fix this because it has such potential! Check it out and give them your feedback! Let's help them survive!
