Greek

Merakia, a word that modern Greeks often use to describe doing something with soul, creativity, and love, is a restaurant that celebrates this rustic style of cooking, known in Greece as a Psistaria, where meats are either grilled or cooked on a spit. Owners Andreas and Renee Typaldos, with their dedicated team, feature items that would make the starving armatoloi freedom fighters proud. Steaks will be well represented and served with Greek accompaniments, while lamb, goat, chicken and other meats and fish will be roasted on the spit with a selection of Greek inspired wines, appetizers, salads and desserts.

We had a booth that was nice and intimate, the food was delicious, and the service great. While the main dishes are expensive, it’s actually more fun to split small plates, sides and salads anyway! The tuna tartare comes out in dry ice which is always fun and is delicious.

Ambiance was nice , dim lit, romantic. But the server kept coming up asking us if we were done. Our plates weren’t even halfway through. At one point while we were having dessert one of us got up and the waiter came back and literally took his plate away. Half of the baklava was still on there. We had to request him to put it back on the table!! Not sure what the rush was for. Restaurant was not full and there were plenty of tables. We were quite disappointed with the service. Place is expensive so it shouldn’t be rushed.

In regards of deserts, I do not know if we made wrong choice but were not apetizing and sprinkled with to much cinnamon. One of the the deserts looked more like two pieces of cookies and was stale. That is why I took off one star. Overall it is a great place.

However, we had an 8 p.m. reservation on Friday night, and the place felt more like a club than a restaurant; they were setting up "red velvet ropes" and there was a SMOKE MACHINE and cheese DJ. we were trying to tough it out at the bar, but the bartender literally ignored us for over 15 minutes. When they set the smoke machine off again, we decided to hightail it out of there and go somewhere else. I have no idea if the food is any good - we didn't get that far. I would say, try this place out if you're >35 and like cheesy upscale clubs. Otherwise, not what you're looking for.

I loved the appetizers: I ordered meatballs and my friends lobster soup and that was very tasty, as a main dish I ordered lamb and I didn't like it at all but I think it's a matter of taste. the overall experience was good and me and my friends had a good time.

The wait staff was very friendly and the food was good, but they did not know a pine nut allergy meant pesto allergy since pesto contains pine nuts. The drinks also took forever to be made... like 15 minutes! Very slow service and ok food.

Side of Tsatsiki and other "spicy" sauce was bland. Creamed Spinach: whole spinach leaves wilted under 1%milk and topped with fat cheese layer was not my perception of creamed spinach Ambience: Beautiful decor, nice sections of tables and booths, lighting. Service: Good, attentive Would I go back? Unlikely, for the price there's better restaurants

It was delicious, and tastefully paired with the right vegetables, pitas and spreads. We highly recommend it. It’s a little pricey, but you get every penny’s worth.

Meal was a frustrating, needless disappointment. Says it is most romantic spot in town. guess if darkness equals romantic OK. Started with what they call Lobster Soup. It was room temperature. Not being a send it back type I ate an otherwise decent soup. Lamb entree was right out of the fridge. Took 10 minutes to get waiter who exclaimed with wonderment that the dish was freezing cold and that he would summon the manager. Returned, the dish was barely room temp. Perhaps Merakia is at the vanguard of a new energy saving trend: cold food. Baklava was very tasty. A Greek wine was fine.Service friendly, if invisible for stretches. On the way out spotted a fellow who looked like a manager. He said indeed he was. Told the story, his dopy response was: we're just getting back after pandemic closing. Next time, any problems ask for him. Despite many fine meals, doubt if I'll be taking him up on his "offer". Have never before said I would not recommend a restaurant, but a first for everything I guess. Too bad. Could easily be restored to its former state if care replace sloth.
