Meritage Restaurant + Wine Bar

Great overall area, view was stellar and wonderful.
The food was terrific and the service impeccable. However, for some reason we were seated next to a VERY loud pair of businessmen who succeeded in spoiling an otherwise lovely evening. We were celebrating a very significant anniversary. Why they chose to seat us at this table is beyond me. When we arrived there many open tables. By the time I realized that these two were going to be unbearably loud the entire time we were there it seemed too late to move. I did notice that most other diners that arrived after us were not seated anywhere near these two. Meritage you should have done better.
Absolutely wonderful experience! The food was superb and the service, impeccable. Highly recommend this restaurant for special occasion.
The Meritage is a beautiful restaurant with white linen table clothes and a nice view. The wait staff was very knowledgeable and attentive including the sommelier. We shared the beet linguini which was absolutely wonderful! My husband also loved his lamb chop. I am a pescatarian so I eat a lot of fish. Unfortunately my bream was old and fishy tasting. I couldn’t even eat it. It was really disappointing because usually the fish at a place like this is melt in your mouth good.
Also about 3/4 of the way through our meal one of the waitstaff poured still water into our 1/2 full sparkling water glasses. That’s not a big deal but is something that shouldn’t happen at a restaurant of this caliber especially when the empty sparkling water bottle was on our table.
The other thing that was a little odd is there was a party going on in the room directly adjacent to the dining room, with a non-solid, movable wall. The crowd was very loud and it certainly took away from the ambience.
Amazing food and presentation. First class in every way. A very special evening.
we had a lovely night! Amazing! Thank you!
Good food and service, nice views from the tables by the windows.
First time at the Meritage. Loved it the entire experience. Service and food was incredible. Can’t wait to visit again soon.
They were absolutely wonderful! A second-to-none service experience, with an amazing view, I went there to celebrate my Birthday and I was really impressed! Excellent food quality, over-the-top customer service, and well, you pay what’s right for such an experience.
Went here for a friend’s birthday and had a fantastic experience. The service was top notch and the food and drinks were excellent. Really great views from any table and quiet atmosphere that allows for conversation. I would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a date night, business meeting or night out with a small group of friends.
As always, the food was amazing. It was made even better by some amazing wine pairings. Highly recommend doing the tasting menu. Some of the items may sound funky, but once you put them in your mouth and combine them with a sip of the selected wine. Boom! Flavor explosion in your mouth.
My wife and I have never had a bad meal or experience at Meritage. We recommend it to anyone looking for a place to go on a date.
We had an amazing server and they treated my wife like a queen on her birthday. Thank you so much for the wonderful experience.
When I made the reservation I told them we were celebrating an anniversary and requested a booth overlooking the water. When we arrived the gal started to walk us to the back of the restaurant even though there was an empty booth by the window. When I asked why we weren't to be seated there - we got a bit of an attitude. We finally did get a booth. The food for the most part was very good, however the salad was way overdressed and soggy and it looked just like the bagged salad I buy at the super market. Not sure we will go back anytime soon.
Celebrated birthday with their tasting menu-very good.
The service at Meritage was okay, unlike what others had reviewed. What was most dissapointing was the tasting menu and the wines paired with each course.. I was going to get a bottle of wine and order a la cart, but opted for the tasting and pairing. It was terrible at every turn. We had to send the wine back at one point, and the sommelier admitted it was their last bottle stating “others liked it.” It was not worth the price nor was the response from the restaurant acceptable. It ruined what could have been a lovely Friday night. It’s true.. the best place to eat in Boston is in Providence or NYC!
Food was delicious; service fell short of expectations. Namely, timely clearing of plates, or refilling needed water/tea/cocktails glasses.
But food was yum!
Fantastic experience at Meritage Restaurant! Jean C. was our waiter who very friendly and helpful.
Absolutely lovely romantic dinner.
Serene setting; attentive service; fine food; contented upon departure...
Beautiful Restaurant, great views and excellent service
Great location , great view , great service, excellent wine selection
Great wine selection and our champagne and wine was some of the best we have ever tasted. The food was above average, standard dishes prepared well. I would recommend this resturant for the wine experience alone.
Some of the food was excellent, the service was excellent, the wine list has significant variety and we were able to find a known wine, resulting in a very good night. Dessert was outstanding and so was the selection of after dinner drinks.
From the moment you walk into the lobby of the Meritage, you receive excellent service. Our servers were knowledgeable, friendly and engaging. The food was fantastic. I'm a lover of high quality food and wine. They did not disappoint. From the tasty tart to the hazelnut cake, every course tasted amazing.
This restaurant is a hidden gem. We tried the tasting menu with wine pairing and it was so good. We were warmly welcomed and had a relaxed night. They charged $100 for 6 course dinner and $45 for wine pairing. Really good value for money.
Fantastic food, wine and service. We had the 6 course tasting menu with paired wine. Every forkful and sip of wine was wonderful. Well worth the cost. My wife and I really appreciate fine dining and this was an outstanding experience. Thank you to the chef and service - excellent!
We didn’t like this place at all. The food was just ok and expensive for no reason. The service is good but I won’t be going back.
Came here to celebrate after graduation. We had to alter our reservation 2 hours before (one member of our party had an emergency and couldn't make it and we moved it from 7pm to 6pm), but we called and the staff dealt with it very swiftly and kindly.
Upon arriving, they gave us champagne to celebrate. Throughout the night, the service was extremely nice. We were served an amuse bouche of tuna poke. For appetizers, we had semolina dumplings and Spanish octopus. The octopus was cooked perfectly and wasn't chewy at all.
For mains, we got the short rib, the sea bream, and the scallops. Again, all were cooked perfectly and were paired with interesting ingredients (macadamia nuts, honeydew sauce, etc.)
For dessert, we shared the Black Forest cake and the Filbert hazelnut torte. The Black Forest cake was decadent and smooth and the Torte was light and refreshing.
Afterward, they gave us a little fruit jelly/preserve and madeleines. While leaving, they gave us each a little chocolate box too.
Overall, it was a great experience with great food, kind service, and a great view.
Great service, classy environment, good food, wide wine selection
FANTASTIC food and even better paired with wine. Great presentation and the flavors were outstanding.
We celebrated our ten year anniversary here. It was a well-paced tasting menu with friendly and attentive service.
Perfect! What a lovely restaurant. The food, the service, the seating and tableware – everything was of the highest quality. The amuse bouche, the salad, our scallop and chicken cordon bleu entrees, the coffee, the wine....so delicious. Can’t wait to visit again.
Excellent restaurant. Nice ambient and great food.
Great overall experience. Service was attentive but not intrusive. Appetizers and entrees were both tasty and aesthetically pleasing. Dessert was great. We had a concert to get to and the staff did a good time keeping us on time.
Excellent wine list. Each course was equally enjoyable although I do favor the fois gra. Our server was exceptional and met all our request. We will be back soon.
Wonderful evening at the Meritage. They accommodate my request for view given the special occasion. Service was fantastic. Only 4 stars for food because although it was really good, the bisque and the fried crab weren't warm, there was nothing on the dessert menu that tempted us, and the mise-en-bouche and bread were interesting but not amazing. Overall experience fantastic though. Totally recommend
The service, including host, was superb. My friend and I ordered the pre fixe with wine pairing menu. The food was well balanced, delicious, and the pairings brought out the best in the menu. The view was perfect, as well. This restaurant is not modern, in such a good way. It’s classic fresh with an emphasis on service, which is a rare find these days. I will return when in Boston!
Heritage is one of the finest restaurants in Boston. In the heart of downtown with a beautiful view of the harbor. The service was extraordinary without being intrusive. The noise level is low enough for quiet conversation and the tables are well spread out. The prices are not excessively high and the food is wonderful. Definitely right at the top of my list for special occasions.
Fine dining experience with a lovely Boston harbor view. The staff jumped through hoops to accommodate our over-changing schedule. The food was done to a perfection with the exception of the desert. The kitchen can up their game when it comes to the desert to match the rest of the tasting menu. The service was professional and the wine selection was excellent. We will definitely repeat.
We had an excellent experience celebrating an anniversary! Thank you!
