    The service did take a very long time . The server took our order 50 minutes after we got sat, then took 2 hours for food.

    As a Titanium Elite Member this was an unpleasant experience. The service was extremely slow. We had to ask for a server after waiting a long time at our table. Our waiter was distracted while taking our order, turning away from us a few times while we were talking to him. Water service and food runner had little personality or friendly interaction. Oysters Rockefeller was vey fishy taste and the texture was extremely offensive. We did return it and it was taken off our bill. The steak was raw when ordered medium. Mashed potatoes, Brussel sprouts and mushroom appetizers were very slaty and not pleasant to eat. Brussel sprouts were black and burned. Chocolate cake was taken to-go and was not good. It was thrown away. None of our party would recommend of return to this business. There were not many others in the restaurant while we were there, so service should have been much better for the price.

    Food was sub par and cold. Waiter and bus people were cold. Very unfriendly, expensive for poor quality food and drink.

    Our launch and dining experiences were great at Meritage. The meals were excellent, and the wait staff was friendly and attentive. The restaurant has a cozy, upscale ambiance. It was our favorite spot to dine at the Marriott Desert Ridge Resort.

    Artisan cheese plate was amazing. Caesar and crab bisque could have been better. Wasn’t impressed - especially for the price paid.

    Was pleasantly surprised. I been to the resort several times but never made it here to the restaurant. Excellent service and the food was equally excellent.

    The food was subpar at best. It was so disappointing because I was here in September of 2023 and the food was outstanding. I ordered the meatballs and they were so dry. They seemed like they had been precooked and then reheated. The sauce on top and ricotta were good but the meatballs came out dry and lukewarm. My son got the Mac and cheese. The noodles were completely overcooked and the sauce had the strangest taste. Kind of like too much cumin maybe? My husband got the truffle pasta with chicken. His was the best by far but even that missed the mark because again the chicken seemed pre-cooked and rewarmed. It was just such a disappointment given it was a Father’s Day dinner and the price of the meal. The drinks were good and the service was outstanding.
