We live nearby and love dining close to home. Because Meridian is well reviewed and within walking distance, we have dined here multiple times with...mixed results. We were excited to give it Meridian another try. This most recent time we ordered the trout and grouper with a bottle of wine. The wine list is quite expensive for what it is. Our selection was okay -- at best -- for $33. The grouper was tasty but the serving was tiny...for any adult, male or female. The trout was dry, tough and cold. Service was fine. Overall, we were so disappointed.

We have been here at least a dozen times and have eaten in the restaurant and bar. While the prices in the restaurant may be high for Winston-Salem, they are very reasonable for the excellent food you will enjoy.

The bar area has a neighborhood vibe with a very good bar menu that includes a couple of pizzas and lots of tapa style snacks. The wine and drinks are top notch as is the friendly service.

Great place for a business meal to impress, or a casual night at the bar that will include good drinks - without being limited to hot wings as your food choice.

My veal scaloppini was tough and the flavor was just not good. My husband's lamb was not good either. We paid $135 for this meal for Valentines Day...wow, so disappointing.

Without doubt, Meridian is one of Winston-Salem's best restaurants. At the upper end in terms of price, it is never the less a value because of the quality of food and service. Last night it presented a near perfect French onion soup (broth could have had a bit more depth and flavor) and a lobster and homemade pasta combination in a delicious cream sauce. The sauce was light enough that the delicate pasta smacking of freshness held its own. Hearty serving and a generous amount of lobster. Service by a veteran WS server Calvin Pena who is among the city's most professional. Knew the menu and was helpful with ordering. Enough service and attention without hovering.. Talented chef/owner Mark Groham is always on site and last night was in the open kitchen cooking. His insists on buying local and uses top notch ingredients. A memorable meal..
