My wife and I tried this place for date night. We were seated promptly and had an excellent waitress. She was attentive and nice. The menu had plenty of options and the wine was tasty. My only issue is we ordered carrot cake for dessert. It was a dry as wall plaster. My issue is a place this nice had to know the cake was aged and figured they works get rid of it on us, which was disappointing.. it was a week ending to an otherwise very nice dinner.

We met friends. They expanded their out door dining. We chose them for the outdoor dining. Weather was nice so heaters not needed but they have plenty for colder weather.

What a great place! The food was absolutely fantastic although the presentation could probably be improved a little. Live music on Saturday night was awesome - what a pleasure.

Service & Food were excellent. The yellow room we were seated left a lot to the ambiance. The yellow walls & bright lights really took away from the experience. Table linens would have been nice too. I would recommend, but ask to be seated in the bar or upstairs. Those areas were more romantic and inline with the price point of the place.

the only complaint and it's a small one was our seating. typically wouldn't mind bar seating w/music but we weren't feeling it this particular night. maybe the 1st floor dining was being closed early for some reason but it was not given as an option.

service and food quality was outstanding with the possible exception of the onion soup. it was very tasty but could've been hotter.

The place was nice and cozy comfortable. Covid restrictions were followed. Hostess was not overly welcoming or friendly.

We were less impressed with the food. Appetizer was pricey and just ok. My husband ordered prime rib and loaded potato. Both were cold and the steak was probably 2 ounces of fat. I had the snapper which was very good with the shrimp topping. I was disappointed that only ketchup was served for dipping sweet potato fries. Wine was good. They were out of the beer my husband wanted. Since we came from out of town we probably won’t be back. Lots of room for improvement.

Had an all around wonderful experience at Meritage Resturant last evening. The bar staff David and Sean offered wonderful suggestions of wine and entrées, and were quite entertaining and social. Thank you for sharing and making it a wonderful evening out.

We ate outside for a late lunch and there was only one other couple there. Beautiful outside decor and flowers. Food was delicious and the quaint little surrounding area was great for walking and shopping.

Food and ambience were a 'meh'. Nothing to wow us to want to go back. Put some white tablecloths and a small flowered vase on tables to warm it up a bit. Just too sterile for us.

Enjoyed a nice anniversary dinner at the bar upstairs. All the servers were delightful & accommodating. We both had delicious meals--mussels appetizer (albeit they were small, but plenty) wahoo fish dinner & steak dinner. We also were glad to hear music by Dave Ridenour, which was a pleasant bonus!

The pan seared scallop appetizer used to be the best in the area. Recently, the chef apparently decided to replace the accompanying chopped red peppers with a very spicy red pepper coulis. The scallops's flavor were obliterated by this modification. Return to the original or loose a loyal customer.,
