Meritage - Scarsdale Ratings and Reviews
Valentine's Day dinner with my wife. The 4 course menu was good, but the service was awful. Waited for what seemed like 15-20 minutes for a waiter. And it didn't change throughout the evening. It seemed like they were overwhelmed by the crowd. Also, not a good value. Overpriced for the food quality and service. Disappointed especially after reading the reviews beforehand.
The food we had recently at Heritage was fabulous! The chef is a master of sauces; as a result, the mussels, duck, and pork au poivre, a special, were fantastic! The mushroom soup was very tasty and was served hot - the way I like it!
Unfortunately, the poor service detracted from the experience. The cocktails we ordered took way too long to be delivered, even though the restaurant was not very busy; they were delicious, though. Most importantly, my main course, the pork special, was not delivered with my companion's dinner - a different pork dish was incorrectly prepared and delivered! I sent back the dish; my companion ate her dinner while my correct order was prepared - that error was inexcusable! In addition, the glasses of wine that we ordered in advance to accompany the main courses were delivered some time after the main courses were presented.
While we were not charged for the wine as a courtesy, the excellent food at Meritage should be accompanied by excellent service!
We visited Meritage for the first time on New Years Eve. We were looking for a quieter spot with well prepared dishes and we found it there! We had varied choices from fish(lobster), veal , and pork dishes and all were uniquely presented and very tasty. The appetizer course had some unusual taste treats, especially for a chilly evening. Great cauliflower soup. Service was quietly perfect and friendly. Wonderful evening.
I left a message via OpenTable that I used this restaurant for a small reception 9 years ago. Without saying anything they gave me a check with the $9 dessert on the house. The waitress was friendly and polite. It was just so relaxing, especially because when we went at 5:45 there was nobody for the good first 30 minutes. Food was good, well presented.
We've eaten here enough times to know that the food will be excellent but the service will be slow. However, at our most recent visit, the service was not just slow, it was poor. Items that were requested were never brought, things like ground pepper & grated parmesan were never offered, & we were charged for a bottle of wine we never ordered. It'll take us a while to go back.
Customer service is obviously of prime importance because the staff could not have been more supportive. Because of extremely heavy traffic we were 45 minutes late. I called and they agreed to save our table. I explained that we needed to get in and out to make a concert. We were! We had an amazingly delicious meal with appetizer and main course, and were in and out in just 45 minutes. We made it to our concert in time. I loved the vegetarian ravioli. Our friends enjoyed fish, pasta and chicken. Everyone was happy.
I was taking a friend out to dinner who I had not seen in many years. I was told that the restaurant overbooked and there was no room for us in the dining room so we were seated in the bar. They gave us free drinks to compensate. The service was a bit slow -- perhaps because we were not in the dining room. The ambiance and food were very good.
We tried this restaurant because it's local and it was Restaurant Week. They menu that they had posted on Restaurant Week and the menu that they handed us for Restaurant Week was a bit different. The one on the internet had many more choices and dessert included. When we got there we had to actually ask for the restaurant week menu, it wasn't offered to us. When it was dessert time, he brought us a dessert menu with prices next to it. When he came by to take our order I had to mention that they have posted on the restaurant week sight that dessert was included and then he mentioned that he forgot we ordered off of the restaurant week menu and allowed us to include dessert. Besides that shadyness, the food was great.
I made reservation for Sunday October 8th for my Husbands birthday for 7:00pm
when we got there the Restaurant was closed because there had been an oyster fest which we were not aware of even though I had a confirmation from open table so we drove down town for nothing very disappointed. Spoke with a bar tender who shrugged his shoulders sorry the restaurant is closed today. Sorry I am forced to rate in order to send this message but I have not eaten there.
Meritage is one of those restaurants where we are never disappointed. We've been going there for many years , and even though we don't go very often, Tony (our waiter) always remembers us. The food is delicious and they offer some unusual dishes. I recommend you try it!
Price-fixe brunch for Mother's Day was limited in choice but excellently prepared. I had perfectly poached egg Benedict and my partner has a beautifully composed frittata. Dessert, extra after the price-fixe was almost perfect Chocolate Mousse with perfect, unsweetened, whipped cream (the only way to make it.)
This restaurant came highly recommended, but it didn't live up to its billing. The service was unacceptably slow. (There was apparently only one server for the entire room.) He didn't take a drink order until I asked, after the food order had been placed! The wait for appetizers and entrees was very long. The food was tasty and good, and the prix fix menu was okay. The service was the killer. We won't come back.
