    Consistently great food, service! Love meeting friends there- quiet enough (usually) to talk; nice ambience. For us, this is a win-win; we knew/ came to this restaurant years ago, for special occasions, and it's nice to see Meritage is maintaining a quality restaurant.

    Meritage is by far, one of my favorite restaurants. The food is fantastic, and the menu has such great offerings. Even the appetizers are amazing! I'm sure it being a Friday evening slowed our experience down a little. We found our waitress to be a tad slow, and not very attainable. I've never had an issue on any other visit, though. Overall, I would definitely recommend this restaurant!

    This was a spur of the moment decision to take my girlfriend out to dinner. some work colleagues eat here regularly, and we were in the area, so decided to try. The menu has something for everyone. the wine and drink selection is quite adequate and the service is just right. I will certainly dine here again, and recommend it to others.

    Food was excellent, if a little pricey. My cousin was slightly disappointed in the pizza. She would have preferred a less-crackery crust and tomato sauce. I had the antipasto, which was delicious - had enough to get two meals out of it.

    Food was far from outstanding. Meals were not served exactly as ordered and the overall quality of the food was only fair. Nothing special at all. Atmosphere was very bar-based. Not a good place for kids. Better for the other, wealthier crowd. However, the waitress was outstanding, but I cant recall her name.

    The food was very good, but our seat placement wasn't ideal. I had requested through OpenTable a curved booth toward the back of the restaurant, but we were led to an uninviting, noisy room. It was our anniversary and I wanted to sit in the same curved booths we sat in the previous 2 years. The room we sat in wasn't very cozy and was, in fact, cold (temperature-wise). In addition, our waitress wasn't overly pleasant, but very efficient and got our orders correct.

    The drink menu is great! I had a cucumber martini which was out of this world and the zippy shrimp app was wonderful along with our pear Gorgonzola salads. The waiter, on the other hand was not so great. It took forever for him to take our order and the drinks were not replenished promptly. It was a busy night because of restaurant week so I would go back to give the service another shot but with all of the competition in east greenwich, they should step it up.

    The only reason I go; the "girls" birthday group, otherwise I wouldn't bother. It's a convenient location for all of us to meet...3x/year (more than I want to go!). Was NOT impressed with our server, had to ask the hostess (because she was the ONLY one walking through the dining area at that time) to have our girl come over as it had been at least 20 minutes since we saw ANYONE in the dining room to ask. Food is average. Plenty of other places to spend my money.

    Normally our dining experience @ Meritage (average one visit with another couple per month) is very good. However...last Saturday night when the server brought me the wrong wine there was no apology or acknowledgement of her oversight and the wait for the replacement felt too long... Our friend's soup was too cold and was sent back, again no apology or acknowledgement...I ordered a caesar salad with shrimp...the salad portion was pitifully meager and too salty. I did not send it back...We were fairly regular customers but this experience prompted our plans to go to Spain restaurant next week. I do have a dinner date this Tuesday at Meritage that I will not cancel as I am hoping Saturday night was a fluke?

    We love Meritage. We have been there many times, and the food has always been delicious-and has always been served hot and fresh. We have never had a complaint. Our table for 6 was set as requested including the specific location, in the dining room near the fireplace. Service is always excellent- the wait staff are cordial, friendly, helpful, and accurate. Meritage's menu has much variety- something for everyone.

    We're new to RI, and when we moved to our new home, Meritage sent us a "welcome to the neighborhood" note and a coupon. To celebrate a birthday, we decided to try the restaurant, and it was well worth it. We found the Meritage staff to be delightful, the food most excellent, and the overall experience extremely pleasant. Prices were very reasonable, and portion sizes were excellent. We were impressed with the quality of the food: our entree was perfectly cooked and seasoned, the veggies were tender crisp and lightly dressed, and the garlic mashed potatoes were spectacular. The PB&C dessert was off the page! Will we return to Meritage? Absolutely, and not just to celebrate a special event. It's a great experience.

    Upbeat elegant yet comfortable ambiance. The restaurant is set back behind trees and we went up and down the road trying to find. A larger, brighter sign would help. Food and alcohol was disappointing. My scotch and soda was watered down, shrimp scampi pizza tasted like grilled cheese- not enough sauce. The dessert pizza that I have had in the past was sweet but not as attractive and filled with fruit as it used to be. It was as though they were skimping on everything. The marzipan was lightly smeared and only a few blueberries and 1/8 of a banana were sprinkled on. I noticed that the appetizers were as expensive as a meal but heard that on Sunday they are half price. Server did not tell us about specials until I asked.
