It certainly has changed.
I recently went back to Merge after a few months, and boy has it changed. I went with a small group of friends and we tried 5 different menu items, which were all very poorly made and lacked flavor. I could have had a better meal at Folks!!! The hostess was prompt in seating us, but the service was very poor, and I believe our server was intoxicated. Throughout our evening I saw many of the employees, of age and under age, drinking at the bar. It seems to be under new management and the manager was more interested in partying with the young , unexperienced employees than checking on his customers. It is a pity, because it was so good before. I won't be going back!
