    The food is always great at Meritage, but the specials this weekend were outstanding. The trio of filet and risotto with scallops were unbelievable, and the service was great as usual.

    Had the Red Sangria with one free nacho tapas. Split the Pork Chop special, very good . Pork had a sweet demi glaze which complimented the chop very well. Had the dessert pizza to finish off a wonderful night. The combination of the mascarpone cheese with the sweet blueberries and bananas are wonderful. A must try!

    Very good food and a large selection. Big rooms and a lot of people. If your looking for quiet, go somewhere else. Service was a little slow at the beginning however, once the drinks came, all fell into place quickly. I will suggest to friends and associates.

    This restaurant is a must try! My husband and I chose this place to celebrate our 11th anniversary and were pleased that we were able to reserve a table for two online. We arrived a bit early (wanting to have a drink at the bar beforehand) and were please to find that our table was ready for us. And, when we informed them that we wished to have a drink first, they HELD THE TABLE FOR US!! Not only that but upon learning that it was our anniversary and first time there, they gave us our first round of drinks free! Food and service are top notch and the ambiance is very inviting and soothing. Noise level was good and my husband and I were able to converse. Highly recommended!

  • Nice Birthday Dinner
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 11/1/2014
    I have driven by here many times and never realized this was a restaurant, until I saw it favorably reviewed online. We brought my mother here for dinner on her birthday. The menu had many choices for meat and non-meat eaters. I can recommend the fish tacos and the tuna entree. When I made the reservation online, I asked if they could do something for her birthday, but I didn't know if they even read those comments. They do! After the delicious meal, they said her dessert was on the house, and they brought it out with a lit candle. Then we took home some leftovers, and they were very carefully packaged in the kitchen - not like those places that give you a box and you have to do it yourself. We will definitely come back.

    A little too noisy in the dining room. The bar is gargantuan, energetic and totally eclipses the dining room. Food seems to have been very good. Drinks are huge. This is a bar with a dining room appendage. It would be great if they could have a quieter place for some of their customers.

    I met 3 friend for dinner & As a local for some reason I haven't been there in years. I think because of location it's not in a populated area & i just never think about it however food & service was excellent & I would absolutely go back again. At the end of the evening we sat drinking water while still chatting practically closing the place & no one was rushing us out which was nice!

    Meritage is usually our special occasion place but when we saw East Greenwich Restaurant Week we thought we'd give it a try. We were impressed at the selection and portion size! Very happy that they participated in Restaurant Week and served the same great food.

    Open table - you confirmed my reservation to me for the correct time date and number of people To the restaurant - you assigned a different time ( one hour later) Could have been very unpleasant. After reviewing the confirmation email you sent to me, the manager was very gracious to find a table for us. We were thrilled with the restaurant - not so much faith in Open Table however. This is not the first time Open Table has screwed up timing and or date on reservations I have made through Open Table.

    Had a great first experience at Meritage. We were seated at our reservation time. Our server was terrific - friendly, knowledgable, and attentive without hovering. All three of us loved our meals. Wedge salad was great, as were the chicken meatballs appetizer. Nice wine list. Prices and portions were reasonable. We'll definitely be back! Recommended restaurant.

    The tuesday nite $22 special, appetizer, salad and entree was great. usually those deals have very basic and limited menu choices at other restaurants but this was very diverse. food was great and you can't beat their dessert pizza which is plenty for the whole table. Likes that you could go their for apps and drinks, pizza and salad or a full dinner. Nicely done!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011VIP
    Dined on 7/29/2014
    DON'T bother to go to Meritage. I cringe every time someone wants to go; the food is AWFUL. "Bulkie Roll" is something I have never seen, old and dry. Chicken was dry, mayo/ tomato didn't even help. Someone ordered a burger med-well, came out raw, sent back, came back too overdone! NEVER had anything good here. Huge margarita glass filled with that or sangria, obviously they drink these huge things so they can't taste the terrible food! So dark inside you can't tell what's in front of you, then you eat it and you really are depressed. Waitress was OK, she was embarrassed, rightfully so, kid helping her was useless. Maybe the chef/owner/staff should eat that horrible food. They NEED Gordon Ramsey! NEVER AGAIN WILL I WASTE MY MONEY!

    We've enjoyed dining here for many years but upon a recent visit realized it was Restaurant Week in East Greenwich. We were so impressed with their extensive Restaurant Week menu, rather than the few skimpy selections most restaurants offer, that our party of 4 became a party of 6 the following week! Their meals are always thoughtfully prepared with beautiful presentation. While we've always enjoyed great service, the past 2 weeks we've been especially pleased with our waiter, Kao! Great job everyone - we'll be back often!

    We went to celebrate an anniversary and an added plus it was restaurant week. Most restaurants give you 3 or 4 choices at most. Here, there were at least 8 entrees to choose from and then specials. The speciality drinks (Sangira) come in BIG glasses... not for the fear of heart. Appetizer (Calamari) was enough for 4 people to eat from. The entrees were well prepared and just enough portions. The desserts, well lets just say you would love to try them all. Good portions and well worth it.
