Food was great, as always. Live music upstairs was nice.

Service was not up to usual standards... maybe it was because of the crowd on Valentine's Day. They sent us to the bar because a table was not available for our 7:30 reservation, and then 'forgot' about us until I inquired 25 minutes later.

My husband and I ate at the Meritage for Valentines Day. It was quite busy, but they immediately found our reservation and took us directly to our table. The server was attentive without being hovering and all of the staff did a wonderful job. The atmosphere was charming and the live music was the perfect addition to the mood. We would absolutely go back for a special occasion. The surrounding town of Glendale was a delight as well!

We had a group of 14 people to celebrate Valentine’s Day. The food was superb, but for a party this size wish we would’ve had two people waiting on our table. While she did a great job, it was slow service. The food couldn’t have been better though and the live music was very enjoyable! Overall, a great time.

My family and I almost always choose the Meritage for special week night dining. The atmosphere is quiet and cozy, classy but not snobby. The food and service is excellent.

Everything was good but not great. Service could have been much better. Waiter was very nice just not on the ball. Walked away without taking a drink order when we sat down. We had to call him back.

The service was ok, the menu is limited, but, you do have to pick your menu item correctly or you might not like what you get.

A group of us met on a wintery Monday and had a delicious lunch. I ordered a BLT on delicious sourdough bread. This menu item came with a side, so I ordered their soup of the day. Our waiter was very accommodating, as was the front entrance host.

Wonderful experience with acoustic guitar playing in the background while we enjoyed table conversation with our meal. Great appetizers and main courses .... I favor the stuffed mushroom appetizer and the ribeye steak dinner..... Superb !!!

This was our first time to Meritage and it definitely won't be our last. The appetizers and menu selections were great. We enjoy frequenting restaurants with ambience and a place where you can have a conversation without talking over the noise. It was wonderful and all four of us enjoyed our meals.

The stuffed mushroom appetizer is excellent. We have had it on every visit. Meritage salad was quite good with an excellent vinaigrette dressing. The steak and fish we had were also excellent. Good craft beer selection on tap.

We went to celebrate New Years Eve. We requested to sit upstairs when we arrived and our request was never acknowledged. We were seated in the main dining area near the kitchen. Our server was slow to our table and failed to share dinner specials with us (he shared them with other tables). My spouse has a dairy allergy which was shared with the server who assured us that the meal he selected could be prepared without dairy however it came out with shredded parmesan cheese on it. We were never asked if we wanted another drink. Unfortunately, this experience and level of service is not what we are accustomed to when we go to Meritage.
