Fantastic restaurant, probably the best in Boston. I spent a week in Boston trying out all the good restaurants I could find and the Meritage was by far the best. Nice quiet, with outstanding service, incredibly delicious food and great wine pairings.
I was pleasantly surprised that the quality was even better than I remembered it from my last visit 5 years ago!
We were forced to order entrees when we ordered appetizers. We wanted a leisurely meal the server wanted us in and out. I’ll take the $1,000.00 I spent elsewhere.
There couldn’t have been a better choice for my birthday dinner; every inspired bite was divine, and the wine lovely!
Definitely in my top 10 category
Outstanding service. Brilliant pairings with each course of a 6 course tasting menu. All the food was cooked perfectly. They were very accommodating swapping out other choices due to allergies.
Every time my wife and I eat here we have the best meal we’ve ever had. We celebrated our Anniversary Dinner here after getting married here last year. Service is impeccable and the food is so unique and creative. The Chef is so consistently over the top impressive and usually will send out a couple extra small plates that they think will go well with our meal. The flights of wine are excellent and are highly recommended. Pappardelle Pasta has so much flavor with the aged gouda. The Venison Carpaccio & Tartar packed a somehow delicate punch of flavor with a great crunch. The Short Rib here is probably the best food I’ve ever had, as I never even picked up my knife. Red wine sauce and falls apart when you touch it with your fork. The Baked Alaska with Cranberry Sorbet had a nice fall touch to it and was sweet and tart at the same time. Overall it was a very expensive dinner, but WOW was it worth every penny. Looking forward to the next time we go here, there really is nothing quite like this in the area. Thank you Meritage!
I was impressed by the view but not the food. We chose the tasting menu and the food is just average. But the service is indeed very good and we enjoy the view very much.
We love they service and food.
I think they can improve to give better attention to the birthday person.
I recommend to everyone.
One of the best service for sure.
Food was great.
Terrific Service and good food.
Overall, great venue for any occasion.
As always the food and wine was awesome. Very unusual was 3 very young children who were very vocal. We have been coming to Meritage for decades and this was the first time for this experience. We will be back soon with the expectation that we will be enjoying our dinner with the wonderful atmosphere that is usually present.
The wine list is respectable and both the food and service were incredible.
I’ve spent far more for far less elsewhere.
We came here for our anniversary. Really enjoyed the Farm to Table menu and wine tasting! Highly recommend!
Trip to Boston, first time here, and thrilled to find this gem. We have many favorite restaurants but this is now at the top of our list.
Best restaurant I’ve ever been to. The food was amazing, the waiter was super helpful and very educated about all wines and food. I went there to propose and when I did they were quick to give us celebratory wine. The chef even gave my fioncee a congradulations written in chocolate on her plate during dessert. Best restaurant I’ve ever been to and will definitely be back for other special occasions in the future!
Wine bar busy sophisticated. Restaurant very refined. Our meals were both top tens-lamb chop and king salmon. Can’t recommend highly enough.
Meritage ceases to impress. Their chef, somm, and service are some of the best I've experienced. I love their wine choices and cheese selection. Can't stress enough how much I enjoy this restaurant. High recommendations on all fronts
Fantastic meal with great service on our 50th Wedding Anniversary. We loved it.
Went here for my birthday last Friday. Unbelievable! Pricey, but well worth it. The food is outstanding. My boyfriend ordered the clams for an appetizer and the scallops as his entree. He said the scallops were the best he’s ever had- flavorable throughout and cooked to perfection. He said his clams tasted like they had been hand-picked straight from the ocean. I’m a vegan, so I ordered the salad appetizer and forest entree. The salad was very beautiful and fresh, and had a super yummy house-made vinegarette. I was concerned about the entree because I’m not a fan of mushrooms and it was the only vegan option. By far the BEST mushrooms I’ve ever had! I’m not sure how they prepared them, but they were unreal. So flavorful and cooked to perfection. Even my boyfriend enjoyed the dish (he despises mushrooms). We ended our celebration with the blackberry desert- highly recommend. This place is above and beyond. The service and food is like that of no other restaurant- to perfection!
Everything about this restaurant was perfect! The staff was outstanding, the food terrific, the view beautiful. A great culinary experience!
This was truly a mixed experience. The food was great. The service was beyond bad. I think they were woefully understaffed. Never cleared the table between courses., we had to seek out our waiter to have our wine glasses refilled, when bringing each course they kept bringing the food to the wrong people. if this was Friday's or Applebees it would have been fine. Just really bad. and very disappointing.
Very poor service. Waiter virtually unseen. Our menu choices seemed somewhat uninspired given restaurant website claims of “magical, etc.” Our seating request - made months prior to our reservation - was not acknowledged/honored despite being guests of the Boston Harbor Hotel. (Parenthetically, our remaining hotel experience was exceptionally pleasing. )
One of the best meals I've ever had. The Vineyard to Table was an amazing experience that should not be missed.
Wonderful ambiance in the bar as well as at the table. Great, competent bartenders who know how to make a great Martini. Table servers were professional and paid attention to every detail, including the wine, for which there is a tremendous selection of some of the world's finest wines like Lafite and Petrus. A wonderful menu that was small, yet complete. The halibut and scallops were the best ever. Please take your best friend for a very enjoyable date night out.
Great. Wonderful. No complaints.
Daniel Bruce remains one of Boston's finest. Dine to impress at Meritage.
The staff and the location and. Food was excellent.
The five course meal along with the wine pairing was exquisite. Highly recommended!
Finest dining experience in ages. Staff wonderfully attentive and accommodating. Food outstanding
We really enjoy our date nights at this restaurant. Great ambiance and great food. Wine list is amazing!
No complaints. Food was outstanding as well as service.
Bad service, we ordered tastes menu for two, one with wine for $45 , first wine, we have not taste at all , coz waiter dropped off our wine on the floor, also, he never gives us back for first wine or say anything to us. We won't come back again.
Cliff was great the entire environment was wonderful next time we visit Boston we will go back to Meritage.
Food and service were impeckible. The only down check is that even making reservations over a month before requesting a booth - when we arrived our table wasn't available. We were told it is first come first served. Why bother to make a request if someone can just walk in ahead of you and get a requested table. Bad policy. Made us feel very unimportant.
We highly enjoyed our dining experience at Meritage. The food was absolutely outstanding, and well worth the trip to Boston. The atmosphere in the restaurant is also warm and inviting, with a great view.
Haute cuisine dinning at its absolute best in EVERY way. The service was warm and friendly and efficient. The cuisine itself was inventive yet completely satisfying. The wine flights were exceedingly well chosen. The ambiance was elegant and modern. The views were stunning. What more can I say?
Service was superb as was the 6-course Chef tasting menu. The wine pairings were spot-on, the food was amazing and the service was second to none. This is a well oiled machine run by one of the greatest chefs in Boston, Mr. Daniel Bruce.
Went for our wedding anniversary. Food was excellent and the service was awesome. Will definitely come back.
We( my husband and I) were visiting Boston for first time , I wanted to do upscale restaurant with harbor view-and we had it all. We enjoyed the atmosphere, food and service. I had best dessert so far in Boston-it was an art -flavor and presentations were amazing. It was great touch was a small box of chocolates on way out-just great.
We had glimpse of harbor at night , great jazz music festival on the wharf and short walk to hotel -that was very memorable and romantic, everything you can wish for
Very amazing ambiance. The staff is nice. We would come back again!
Wanted a great meal after flying into Boston for the night and couldn't have chosen better. The menu was one of the best (and most varied) we've ever encountered, and the food was incredible, beginning with the amuse bouche and the "bread" which was topped with thin slices of potato to the raw oysters, cheese cart, and the light, delicious desserts. The wine parings and the wine were excellent, and the service was outstanding. The evening view of the Boston Harbor was delightful as well. Highly recommend The Meritage Restaurant + Wine Bar!
Had a wonderful evening celebrating a special event. We were greeted warmly and made to feel special. Our primary server, Jean, was outstanding! Service was perfectly attentive without being intrusive. We had the tasting menu with wines. The food courses were delicious and the wines were paired exquisitely. The starting course was one of the best scallop dishes we have ever had. The following courses of flounder, duck and beef were all unique and extraordinary. The view of the harbor changing as the sun sets is enchanting. Definitely would recommend this for a special occasion.
