11/08/2010 – "Merche is easily the best restaurant in the neighborhood. The food is well made from high quality ingredients, the service is friendly and accomodating and the atmosphere is very pleasant. There's plenty of room between tables, the noise level is low enough to allow for easy conversation and the lighting is relaxing without being too dim to read the menu. The menu has a lot of variety and prices are low for the quality, i.e. a good value. Whereas I would save the word "excellent" for the food and service at DaMarco's or Mark's, Merche is very good for when you don't want to drive into town and spend a couple hundred $$s per person. If you live in the neighborhood, this will become your regular spot." — MM

10/03/2010 – "Last night we had an engagement party on the patio at Merche. It was great.

Everything about the restaurant rings class. We had Hors d'oeuves, red and white wines, beer and champagne. The food was superb, was well as the wines, beer and champagne. The wait staff was the best I seen and music also was great.

We have also visited this restaurant 4 times before and everytime it has been great. I can say that we have never left disappointed." — MKW

3/17/2010 – "Great restaurant and great staff. We were greeted by a well dressed and very polite hostess who sat us at a nice corner table. The menu is very nice, with options for anyone in your party which is great. We also had the asparagus tapas and the dates (recommended by our server) They were FABULOUS.

My wife had the snapper which was terrific, a wonderful sauce and lots of lump crab to compliment the fish. I had the pork chop which is right up there with Perry's (though not as expensive). Our server carved it tableside and we had plenty to take home.

We had the flourless chocolate cake and although it appeared small at first, it is rich and decadent and plenty, even to share. I'm not sure what the previous review is all about, our service was great from beginning to end and every restaurant has it's policies about checks. It seems like the issue was checks and not food. If you want great food, check this restaurant out. Great addition to the Cypress area." — D. Edwards

3/3/2010 – "I am blown away by this restaurant. I had the fish with lump crab meat.The sauce was delicious.This is the best meal I have had in a year. My guest had the Tuna salad and squash soup. Beautiful and so tasty! I don't live in the area but would drive a great distance for this food. The decor is high end, the staff very friendly and everything that came out of the kitchen looked amazing. So Creative!!!! Hats off to Chef St John." — Babs

1/14/2010 – "This restaurant is a great addition to this area. We have been in twice now and each time we were impressed with the food and service.

On our last visit we asked for recommendations from our server. She knew the menu well and recommended we try the Shrimp Merche, which we loved. We had the buttered snapper which was to die for, and the mole chicken which was equally as good. For dessert our server recommended the flourless chocolate espresso cake and the bread pudding, both excellent choices.

This restaurant really shines with its unique menu and excellent service. Don't let the hospital location fool you, this is a true gem. Only downsides: No lunch menu, making it a pricey option for lunch,(although both times we have been told that a lunch menu is coming); as well as no liquor license.(which is also supposed to be in the works according to signage around the restaurant) Give it a try, you won't be disappointed." — srgordon

12/17/2009 – "The food is great and service is outstanding. I had the butternut squash soup and wood fired filet mignon. We were able to have a conversation without having to yell. Prices were comparable to the quality of the food. When they get their liquor license in 2 weeks, I'll certainly be back. This looks to be a jewel of a restaurant in an area where there is not much fine dining." — bpkat16/24/2012 – "Everything is always presented beautifully and is always so delicious.
