The food was imaginative and yet still homey enough to be recognizable.
We enjoyed our meal immensely. The wine prices are a bit high for a 1/3 of a glass, but other than that, the service was impeccable and the meal one worth returning for in the future.

Always such a personable and fabulous experience, you truly feel like you are the only customer in the whole restaurant! Food is superb, hands down the best filet I’ve ever had, both times!

We were in from out of town visiting friends and they recommended Mtg. Place. The outside of the restaurant is super cute and reminds me of a brasserie you'd find in France. Our group started off by sharing a couple of small plates. The tartare was very flavorful but the goat cheese fritters were the real winner. I could have ordered 3 more of those! For entrees, my husband got the steak frites with truffle fries. The porkchop was cooked appropriately and the truffle fries were super tasty. I ordered the duck tacos (which are another small plate) and they were delicious! The combination of the sweet strawberry salsa balanced nicely with the jalapeno crema. My friend ordered the patty melt and the one bite I had was super flavorful. All in all, it was a great meal!

Service was not very good at all. The ticket ran long. The sever was not as friendly as she could of been or should have been. Expensive for the amount of food you received. Extremely loud last night. However the food did taste good. But was expecting a larger serving per the menu than what was received.

We had a 6:30 reservation and arrived on time. Our server, and the restaurant in general seemed overwhelmed. We had to rush through our dinner to get to a 8 pm show.

Jake was an awesome server! He was prompt and attentive when necessary but not bothersome. He was very knowledgeable and helpful. Food was outstanding. Everything came as ordered even with menu changes/substitutions. For me the only drawback was the noise level with loud conversations driven by the music. But that’s the desired atmosphere for the Meeting Place. It was a great experience and I will go back again.

As always, we were not disappointed with our dinner at St. John's Meeting Place.
From the appetizer, two different entrees, a shared dessert, and bottle of wine
everything was delicious. Our server was very attentive.

Seasonal dishes were delicious. Try the beet salad. The filet was cooked perfect and a nice cut. Trout was good. Service was good...not great, but blame that on our waiter getting triple seated. We tried both Meeting place and St Johns restaurant. Our meal at Meeting Place was half the price and food was just as good.

The Meeting Place offers Small Plates and Large Plates. One can choose as many as they wish. We chose one of each and it was plenty of food for us. We ordered a dessert board for two and it was the right amount for the two of us. The coffee was particularly good and we learned it was from a local company.
We’ll definitely return to the Meeting Place.

Enjoyable dinner with several business colleagues. We didn't know that there would be fairly loud live music, so we weren't able to have the conversations we'd hoped for (there were eight of us, and we could only hear one person away). But food was good, and service appropriately attentive.

We always love The Meeting Place.. . It was our first date restaurant before we married. We invited our friends to join us last Saturday. We also go to ST. John's next door a lot for fancier special occasions.
The atmosphere and food was terrific. I suggest making reservations, like we did, because the place is almost always busy.

The food was tasty and several gluten free items made the menu varied. My friend and I ordered two small plate options and shared a large plate for our dinner, which made for a satisfactory and filling meal. A plus...the large plate was divided in the kitchen and brought on separate plates to us. Waiter was friendly and knowledgeable, but as room filled it appeared to be shy of sufficient wait-help. We had to wait longer than typical for our bill and take home carton. I don’t fault the waiter. He had multiple tables and a full house. We arrived at 6:15, and by 7:15, the place was packed, and noisy which made conversation difficult across our small table. Still, I would recommend the restaurant to friends, but add that’s it’s best to get there early.
