    The food and service were decidedly average. Definitely worse than when we were there last (about 4 years ago). Just "meh" all the way around. In a city with so many other restaurant options, I think it's best to skip Meril. If you really want the Emeril experience, go to one of his other restaurants.

    Everyone in our party enjoyed their dinner very much. The pimiento crab dip, and the upsidedown pineapple cornbread were a big hit. The crispy cauliflower was delicious, although not too crispy. My shrimp and alligator pasta was very tasty too! Nice bourbon list to boot!! And they handled our table of 10 smoothly, without shipping a beat.

    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.
