Great little neighborhood gem with easy parking. Cocktails are fantastic and made with good ingredients. I always skip the maraschino cherry in my Manhattan because most places use the red dye, high fruit corn syrup variety but not here. My entree of duck on arugula, shaved fennel and peaches was amazing! Chef, please keep those fresh, seasonal ingredients the focus of your restaurant!

One of the best little local gems in Westchester. Smallish place with a nice bar. Wait-staff are the best. Knowledgeable and attentive. Food is equally excellent. It is my favorite to "fall into".

Service was excellent with very capable and friendly wait staff. Food was superb. The sauces were flavorful without being too spicy. Menu choices met everyone’s tastes. Dishes reminded us of really good Northern Italian food we had in Italy

The waiter was rushing us while tables were empty. We had to leave as the table next to us was a large noisy party. We would have ordered after dinner drinks but we went elsewhere . Not sure I would go back

Meritage in Scarsdale is a hidden gem! Convenience, outstanding service, great food and fantastic wine list and creative cocktails! Don't miss out on this gem in Scarsdale! Other restaurants come and go, but Meritage has withstood the test of time and continues to turn out a fantastic menu!
The only lingering question is the landlord and their greed of wanting to charge them even more rent then they are paying now! Scarsdale landlords already charge NYC type rents for the retail spaces, with only a fraction of the NYC population available to shop at them! I would rather see thriving, community, small businesses then vacant spaces. Meritage is a must-eat restaurant for anyone who has not been. Let it become your regular spot thereafter! They will remember you!

We enjoyed our experience for the most part. However when we ordered drinks they could not made as they were out of one of the ingredients and my husband’s second choice, which was one of their specialty cocktails, could not be made either. The waitress then made a suggestion of an alternative which was fine. The food was delicious but as the restaurant got more crowded the wait staff were stretched and our waitress seemed to disappear.

Overpriced moderately good French food. Service is unschooled. Mediocre ambiance. Maybe go Wednesday’s for half price wine.

Went to explore Meritage for restaurant week, Sunday brunch. Food was excellent, really a cut above other places. The Mimosa bar was extra special: bring your own champagne and you can try several mixers to create various versions of Mimosas. So fun and only $6 per person!

Valentine dinner with my wife. Had an 8:30 reservation and were not seated til 9:20, I don’t meat of any kind and called the day before to make sure that the fish on the Prix Fix menu would not run out. So when finally seated the fish was not available. The waitress was exhausted by this time and was not attentive at all. She went into the kitchen and advised that they will be able to do some salmon for me and then disappeared. So now at 9:40 noticing that the restaurant was half empty and that in 10 minutes that other half would be gone and we hadn’t even ordered yet, we decided to cut our loses and stood up and left.
