    We understood the slow service as it's a problem everywhere, but the server was responsive despite being very busy. We went for the escargot and were disappointed with the (ground parsley?) that covered the whole dish, and the buttery garlic flavor we hoped for was missing. The seafood crepe had plenty of crab, but lacked flavor. We sat outside on a beautiful day and the atmosphere was wonderful.

    Food was so good - Husband had Beef bourginon (pretty sure I misspelled that) and I had the Filet au poivre. Both were excellent! The service was also perfect and their wine pours are the best. Love this restaurant!

    Sadly, it appears a worker shortage is affecting this once reliably great place. Friendly server but it took an hour and a half to get our food. Avoid dining room to the left side of entrance. It is very loud.

    The Chardonnay on the daily menu was excellent in taste, chilled just right, and a generous pour. The east coast wellfleet oysters were good as was the soup de jour. service was spotty waiter brought oysters and soup out together when we asked for soup as a second course. They took it away when asked. The entrees of beef tips and chicken croquettes recommended by the waiter were not good. My dining companion kept her beef but when asked I said I did not like the chicken at all and it was removed from the table and the bill. We didn’t stay for dessert even though we were celebrating a birthday. I would go back but I would stay away from the entrees and make a meal of starters and salad and especially the wine options.

    Food was good, presentation was excellent, however, service left much to be desired. The salad arrived along with the appetizer. Somebody, not our waiter, delivers the mains with who got the beef, the staff were more like "hashers" rather than waiters in a high end restaurant.

    This is frankly our favorite spot in cherry creek. It is nothing short of spectacular. We bring all of our out of town guests here (as well as many in-town friends) as it always excels. Great food. Terrific staff. Fantastic atmosphere. What more could any customer want? 10/10. Perfect.

    We went to La Merise for our anniversary dinner and it did not disappoint! The food and wine were fantastic! It was a very comfortable place to eat, although the tables were a little close together for a private conversation. The staff was friendly and helpful and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit!

    We enjoyed having a birthday dinner at La Merise. The ambience (sitting on patio) was nice. Our server did a good job of recommending items on the menu and being attentive. The drinks were all good and I enjoyed my meal. It would have been nice if they had offered a free desert for our birthdays but they did not.

    La Merise is delightful! We dined outside and it was lovely. No traffic noise from Third Avenue. The space was very comfortable and pleasant. The food was excellent! A good, normal quantity for a fair price. The staff was wonderful, even letting us linger beyond closing time because we weren't in the way. Friendly, well-timed attention. Nothing made us uncomfortable. We definitely will go back!
