    My group of four had an amazing time dining. All of the food was incredible, but the pineapple upside down cornbread was to die for. The seafood gumbo had just the right amount of spice, and everyone was pleased with their entrees and desserts. While the food alone was incredible, Rashid’s service was fantastic. He was incredibly helpful with recommendations, knowledgeable about the menu, and mastered the balance of making sure our group was pleased while not being overwhelming.

    The food was good to very good. In some cases the things we chose were outstanding—but in a few cases it seemed like things were not as wonderful as we expected that they would be. We got a great table in the corner, but even still it was quite a noisy room. The decor was very cohesive and comfortable. Not overly done, but showed thought and consistency in design. The staff was very good.

    Hostess and manager could not problem solve for a unique situation due to weather delays. Refused to seat reservation unless 'majority' was present. Wish they could of allowed people who were on time to be seated and order while those late due to rain delays held up reservation. Made a 12:15 reservation and should have been allowed to sit for our hour, not delayed.

    Had a disappointing experience with 1 of the hostesses (I think her name was Gwen), but the managers (sorry, can’t remember their names) and servers more than made up for it, especially since it was my wife’s birthday. Our servers, Shelly and Alan, were extremely pleasant and helpful, which made our visit an enjoyable one overall. And the food was fantastic! We can’t wait for our next trip to NOLA and definitely will be dining at Meril again!
