After driving around Winston/Salem on a Saturday night, trying to find a restaurant that didn't have an hour wait. We came upon the Meridian. The restaurant looked high end and we were surprised we were able to be seated right away. There was a little bit of an aire in the wait staff but service was prompt. My expectations for... More

Have eaten here twice and both times the food was not good. For example, the paella tapa dish is nothing more than a cup of risotto with two shrimp and two undercooked mussels. The small salad consisted of mixed greens and a half roasted Roma tomato. "Fine French, Italian and local cuisine" as advertised on their website? I think not.

Great staff and outstanding food. First stop, and sometimes second stop whenever we are in town. Really like the tapas menu, great tastes at very fair prices. And always interesting dishes on the regular menu. Many things you would/could never fix at home. Beer and cocktail selection is outstanding also. Been stopping here for years.

With a large business group, we occupied a room ourselves. The menu was sufficiently varied. I had the sea bass, which was wonderfully prepared. I asked for a veggie substitution and they were quick to agree. The portion size was sufficient for a large appetite, but not Thanksgiving heavy. The french onion soup appetizer was yummy as well. I'd definitely... More

The Meridian Restaurant is located next to the Brookstown Inn and 1 block from Old Salem, in a restored textile mill. We met the Chef and Owner (Mark Grohman) and he graciously described his cuisine and daily menu. We had a delightful dinner (Recommend the Bistro steak). Good food and a reasonable value. Good wine selection, and the drinks from... More

The wait staff is a four+ Prompt and accommodating. The facts of the case: 1. This is a tapas only review - a nice menu reasonably well executed. Not much excitement in the flavor. So that's a three 2. This is a Wednesday night - that's half price wine night. The wines by the glass are a nice value. And... More

We wanted to take our 92 year old Aunt out to a restaurant. It was important that it had no or few steps, was able to accommodate her walker, and good food. We were please with our choice. One of the entrances to the restaurant is near a parking lot that we were able to get her in with no... More

A half a dozen or so folks suggested this restaurant. On a 1-10, 10 being the best, I would rate the service staff as a 9 (host & waitress were superb), the food quality as a 3; and the customer experience as a whole as a 4. Tasted a clear (burnt) cooking / cleaning chemical in the calamari appetizer, returned... More

Overrated. Price for what you get just not worth it. $11 salad basically lettuce and 3 olives. Service good but food overpriced.

Every single experience I have ever had at Meridian has been outstanding on all levels. From mere drinks at their bar to hosting out of town guests for an adult supper. Superlative selections and preparations. Fine dining, indeed, but worth the time and money spent!
