First and last time I'll be going to this place. I got engaged 2 months ago and decided to have my fiance's family and my family meet for the first time since they live in opposite areas of the country. This dinner was their first meet. Our waiter was extremely cold and came off annoyed by us as soon as we sat down. We had a party of 9 and he rarely ever looked at us while speaking or taking our orders. His attention was constantly being diverted to other areas of the room. He acted as if there was a bomb in the room he needed to defuse and we were holding him up. When it came time for dessert we were trying to figure out if we all wanted to order different things. Since we all were meeting for the first time, the dessert menu did not get our full attention so when it came time to order we asked each other what would be the best things to get. The look on our waiter's face was of pure annoyance and disdain so much so that his leg began to shake as if saying internally "come OOOON". Everyone noticed his behavior and it was downright insulting to all of us. This is a Sunday before Labor Day and not even half the tables in this restaurant are taken. Calm down, guy.
When the food was brought out we were all shocked at the portion sizes. My salmon was $41 and was a small, thin filet (undercooked, I'll get to that in a second) with a meager side of sliced cherry tomatoes, peanuts, and some other small vegetable I could not identify. This "side" was so small I couldve cupped it in my hand. If I wanted an actual side, that was not included and wouldve been an upcharge. I shouldve looked into this restaurant a bit more because apparently this is one of those type of restaurants that brings out a dinner plate the size of a hub cap but the food itself takes up the real estate that a slice of pizza would. If you're looking to get full do not go here, go to Season's 52 where you can get a salmon meal for half the price that wont make you vomit.
At about 10:30 last night my stomach was so upset from the fish that I spent a good 45 minutes kneeling over my toilet.
Will not be coming back to this place. Myself and my family ended taking a bunch of complimentary mints from the front desk and eating them on the way to our cars so we could at least feel somewhat full and justified for spending a ridiculous amount of money at this place.
Great little place, food was very, very good. Prices were in line with basic locations around Indy but a better quality food.
Find this needle and have a great lunch, or dinner.
It is a house playing dress up as a nice restaurant. Food is very pedestrian. Small for the price and over spiced to hide the taste.
The food here is amazing with many options that leave your mouth wanting more. The Chef has put together some wonderful flavors that you just keep thinking about! I was amazed with the lemon ricotta ravioli appetizer. I felt like I was back in Amalfi! Service was good I just wished we had been given more information about the menu and the dishes before making choices. I heard the waitstaff telling other tables, but felt left out on the descriptions and time for questions. Would like a little slower pace as it felt rather rushed. This is important as you are enjoying the food!
Quiet romantic restaurant
My wife and i went for a special dinner. It was a Tuesday several weeks ago. There were maybe six tables inside and out. Our server might have been new. The service was lackluster. We felt neglected. Food was very very good!
The Meridian Restaurant was a fantastic place to enjoy a great meal and have a delightful conversation. The warm ambiance was comforting and relaxing after a long work day. The staff were extremely friendly, kind, courteous, and helpful. The food was absolutely delicious. We started with the corn purée. I selected the salmon for my main course and was pleased with the decision. My colleagues both had the boar Bolognese. We ended with the donuts. Great location, great atmosphere, great people, great food, provides overall great satisfaction. Thanks Meridian.
Amazing experience with Kaitlyn as our service. The deserts are divine
