The food here is outstanding. The bread and dip is excellent. The vegetable soup with cilantro was great. Every main course I've had here has been done very well. The service is professional and very attentive. The best part is that you can have a conversation without shouting. There is usually very little wait. All of these make this a... More

Prices are way too high for what you receive. The food was not great. Service was ok. Think that they make their money on the alcohol and they push it. French Onion soup was warm and the cheese wasn't even melted. The portions are small, too

Classy look and service was very good. Bread service was also good. Only thing was I left the restaurant hungry. The portion of the Chicken Picatta was small and there was no salad with the entrée. Also not enough capers or lemon flavor.

We were meeting family in NW Houston and there is something of a dearth of 'better' restaurants up there off NW Freeway. Not that there aren't good choices, but 'special occasion' places are not prevalent among Thai, chain steak houses, etc. So we were delighted to find Merche. Italian/Spanish in theme, they had wonderful empenadas for appetizers, excellent pasta dishes,... More

Just spend our second Valentines day having dinner at Merche. This place is fantastic. The food, drinks, ambience, and staff are top notch. Our server David (who we have had every time we have eaten there) is absolutely the best server we have ever had anywhere. They have a very diverse menu, a great bar and a great wine list.... More

I stayed in Houston for a few days and had a bad meal ordering veal at another establishment the night before eating here. I was reluctant but tried again. The veal scalloping was delicious, all the apps we ordered were great as well. I will definitely eat here again.

We certainly enjoyed our visit the dining experience was exceptional. We were taken care of like family with sterling service. The steaks were cooked to perfection and the flavor was outstanding. Hats off to the bartender as well for making outstanding dirty martinis! Another vice of mine, creme brulee, it was very nice.

Nice dining experience on a Friday night in a restaurant quiet enough to have a conversation. I went with a friend and we had the parmesan-crusted asparagus, salad Merche (spinach, pear, pecans, gorgonzola cheese), filet, mushroom ravioli w/ chicken and bread pudding. The food was all very good. I look forward to dining here again.
