    Meril provided a fun atmosphere to dine during our visit to NOLA. Our group ordered an assortment of shareables and cocktails to start the meal - the pineapple upside down cornbread was exceptionally good.

    The food was lacking in flavor and underwhelming (ordered the gumbo, Nero pasta, mango cheesecake). The service was rushed, it was busy and they were attempting to get diners out in 30/40 min. Overhyped would not return.

    What an amazing Dinner experience. The staff was welcoming and friendly. Our server Lauren and her assistant Joe were incredible. Both very friendly and attentive. Lauren was great about making reccomendations for food and drinks. We had the fettuccine Neru and the korean BBQ ribs as main courses. What AMAZING food! Meril was outstanding and did not disappoint. It was the perfect restaurant to celebrate our anniversary. From the appetizers, to the dessert we were satisfied. We even loved the cotton candy surprise we got for our anniversary celebration as well totally unexpected.

    We had a table of 10 at 7:45pm on a Sunday…they were ready for us to leave…the restaurant was also out of a lot of menu items. The service was good, but I thought the food wasn’t as good as the first time I’ve been there

    Food was ok, atmosphere was nice, service was good. For the price and the reputation, I expected the food to be better. Portions were really small, too, if you don’t order appetizers and additional sides, you may leave hungry.

    The food was not prepared well. It lacks basic seasoning. The customer service is excellent. I was asked if I enjoyed my food, and after explaining that I did not enjoy my food, they removed the items from my ticket and brought me a complimentary cocktail. So my poor review is for the Chef and culinary staff.

    It was actually the 2nd time we went in a 3 day period because our kids loves the chicken tenders so much and on a Monday night some of the options are limited with kids in NO. Tenders were great again (literally the best any of our group had ever tasted) but I ordered the burger cooked medium and it was dry as a bone. I honestly didn’t send it back because all the food took so long I was really hungry. Service was considerably worse on a Monday vs a Saturday night as well - felt like the C crew working (server was not super friendly or observant). Mexican corn as a side was excellent. Just a little disappointed with the meal and service overall. Our experience on Saturday night was, however, better.
