Meritage Restaurant + Wine Bar takes the unique approach of matching wine and food with a dynamic, sensory-evoking menu that offers guests a memorable culinary experience while simplifying the art of pairing. Led by Chef Daniel Bruce and created by Chef de Cuisine Keith Bombaugh, the new Meritage menu features Contemporary American cuisine and highly creative dishes that are seasonally driven, artistic in nature and tell a story.
The new menu honors the restaurant’s hallmark of matching wine to food, an art that Chef Bruce is well known for, and showcases Chef Bombaugh’s whimsical culinary approach. Chef Bruce and Chef Bombaugh base the Meritage menu on ingredients at the peak of freshness and flavor. Working with unusual and varied ingredients allows each dish on the menu to be unique while simultaneously enhancing the wine’s flavor

Food and service was very good. Asked waiter to pair wines with each course and wines were very good. It WAS very expensive.

This was Christmas Eve four course dinner for two with wine pairings optional. Service was perfect. A class act. (The customer is always right at this establishment.) The waiter was extremely knowledgeable about all the wines and dishes. The only part of the entire meal that was not excellent was the bread. Three kinds were offered; the Boston brown bread was dry and cold, the others were fresh and warm. All of the four courses, for both of us, were delicious, wonderfully prepared, visually appealing. Tables far apart, quiet, and optimal for private conversation. Expensive and worth it. We have been here many times for special occasions and will return soon.

There are few places in Boston where you can have an exceptional, leisurely meal and feel that you have a privacy in the middle of a restaurant. The food and the ambiance are top notch, and the service should be considered the benchmark for a fine dining experience. Bravo!

We are disappointed that Meritage changed their menu format from a small plate / large plate option for all menu items to the traditional appetizer / main setup. Their creative chef induces a desire to try many things, but that doesn't work so well now. The new menu will discourage future visits for us.

A true surprise that surpassed our expectations. Each item that was placed in front of us was a true delight and the price for such a delicious fine dining experience was excellent value. I will be back for sure and be recommending to everyone. Insider tip, try any of the fish they have on offer, it will be cooked to perfection!
