I'm always so surprised when I see a negative review for a place I consider to be excellent. It is always possible that any restaurant can have an off night, but more likely there are just certain people who you just cannot satisfy.
This was our 2nd meal at Merge, our first being 3 years ago. At that meal, all six of us agreed it was excellent. At our meal last night, all three of us again agreed that the food was impeccable. My companions had the salmon (natural Alaskan, be forewarned -- they are about t change their salmon preparation to another recipe) and I had the crab nudi (unbelievably good broth, tons of accompanying mussels). Wonderful service, excellent sound track, modern artistic surroundings. Next time you're in Fernandina Beach GO FOR IT !!
