Always a great meal at the Meritage
Tip: Make time for a pre-dinner cocktails. The Meritage is one of the few places where the 'art of the cocktail' has not been lost. Martinis and specialty drinks made to perfection.

Meritage Cafe does a good job of trying to provide Columbus with a fine dining opportunity. Have been numerous times and overall the food has been good. Looking forward to the new location downtown by the Rivercenter! A bit pricey but overall good effort by local folks to do good. Have had numerous business dinners there with guests from overseas as well as from up north.

Was searching for a dinner spot in Columbus, GA that was different than the ordinary food chains for a romantic dinner for the wife and I. The Meritage Cafe came across my screen with great reviews and now I see why. The website allowed me to make reservations online and then sent me a confirmation. It also had an option to put gifts / flowers on the tables which I chose. This gesture turned out to be a great surprise for my wife. The food was outstanding (duck and filet mignon) and the owner coming to each table to personally open up the first bottle of wine was very classy. I would recommend this spot to everyone. Men take your ladies here... you cant go wrong!!!!

I had the foie gras app, and Wellington entree. Both were delicious. My fiancée had the duck breast which was also excellent. I've wanted a place like this in Columbus to eat at and now I have it. Worth every penny.

Do NOT miss this restaurant
I read many reviews on this restaurant and all were very favorable. My wife and I were headed to Columbus for the weekend. I also planned on surprising her with a re-engagment of our marriage so I booked a reservation. On Friday afternoon I had forgotten to order flowers and I called the restaurant and spoke with Faye, the owner and explained my delima. She went above and beyond by having a dozen red roses waiting on my wife. The food was wonderful, portions were perfect and the wine list was unbelievable. we cant wait to go back to Columbus just to eat here. We travel all over the world and have eaten at some very nice restaurants and I have to say that Meritage is a hidden gem that would make it in any big city. DONT MISS THIS RESTAURANT!

Arrived in Columbus the night before a business function, and had no idea where to eat. Fortunately, OpenTable was available, and we found Meritage. What a great find. Concise, well thought out (and reasonable) wine list, and genuinely excellent food. The owner (Faye) came out and visited with us as well. Overall.... a very pleasant experience. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Very high tech
I was impressed that the experience included mobile devices. A tablet checked us in to our reservation (made on Opentable), and an ipod with custom app was used to order from the menu. The food was great and the portions were fair. The wine list had a large selection but having to pay for 1 oz samplers is ridiculous when you are trying to figure out if you like it. The ambience of the restaurant was cozy with moderate noise level (not too loud, not too quiet).

This was our first visit to the new downtown location! Huge improvement from the previous location! The atmosphere was buzzing and festive. The food was excellent. The service was prompt and accommodating. The decor is very sophisticated and cosmopolitan. Highly recommend. We will definitely be dining at Meritage again!

A wonderful surprise for the small market area.

Location is great, food excellent
The new location is a significant improvement. We requested a quiet location and were seated in a corner space with a low ceiling covered with an attractive sound absorbing facade.
The food was excellent. I had Lamb chops, medium well, cooked to perfection, juicy, tender and delicious. My wife ordered the sea bass as her entree. She ordered the small serving, but said it was so good she wished she had asked for the larger serving. Service was attentive, but not intrusive.
The Meritage is known for its extensive wine selection. We didn't order a bottle, but all had the "by the glass" selection. The chardonnay, pinot grigio and pinot noir were excellent. The "by the glass" selection is strong, perfect when a bottle is too much.

Good food but menu was limited
Good food but menu was limited and 2 of 3 items I ordered were out of stock

My fiancé and I went to dinner there was incredible. I had one of the best Manhattan's I've ever had along with A rack of lamb that was delicious. My fiancé had the scallops which were very good. The wine glass and drink list or spot on; along with desserts. The service is beyond the best I've had since I've been here in Columbus and I would go back here anytime. Be sure to make reservations and asked for a corner table you will not be disappointed. Definitely five stars.

Meritage was a great find
Meritage was a great find in uptown Columbus.
Food was great, excellent wine list and the owner who is the sommelier was a great resource.
I plan to go back the next time I visit Columbus.
