Valentine’s Day. Ordered steak for 2. Way too salty.

The service was mostly above average. When we could locate our server, she was great. Everyone at our table ordered the filet. We also ordered the crispy brussels sprouts and the peas and carrot sides. We also each ordered a dessert - brownies and the valentine dessert. Unfortunately, the filet was the only item that did not taste as if it was prepared well in advance. The rest of our plates, sides and desserts were either stale, over cooked, or gelatinous. It was a disappointing meal.

Attentive service, quiet (most patrons were playing golf as this is a golf club estabishment).
Food was above average with a variety menu. Good for a quiet lunch with friends.

The restaurant is located in a beautiful hotel in Phoenix. We had a great dinner, the food was delicious and our server was very friendly and attentive.

The chopped salad with pork belly was awesome and the meatloaf wrapped in bacon was a real treat as well.

Looking forward to my next visit.

This place has all the right pieces in place for a great experience. Our server was the same as our last visit and he's very personable and indulging. We attribute the "cut above" marks to his high level of care and attention to detail. He has great taste and made excellent recommendations. Everyone was kind and they presented the perfect marriage of fine dining and a light casual environment.

Over priced meal for food that was considered 'fair.' Ambiance ruined by large, noisy group in bar area.

I thought it was hard to find on the site. A few signs but illogical location. The interior was rather boring. It was too loud for me. I don’t want to yell all night across the table. The entree were average. There would be no reason to go back

Service was extremely slow and underwhelming. Waitress was nice, but disappeared for 15 minutes at a time. Twice our ice team needed refill and she was no where to be found. We also ordered steak / pork chop (both are excellent), but she forgot to bring the rolls, when we asked about the bread she said she would be right back with them . . . you guessed it, 15 minutes later, after we finished our meal she brings the dinner rolls. By that time our iced teas were empty again, and she said she would be right back with refills . . . and once again, 15 minutes to get a refill. She never asked us if we wanted dessert, she just brought the bill and walked away.

We had dinner at the Urban grill on New Years eve. The service was poor and the waitress was rude and uninterested. I expected more from a Marriott property.
We will not return !

We were looking forward to our Thanksgiving dinner here, but were extremely disappointed. The turkey was dry and bland, the stuffing was mushy and had a terrible flavor, green beans were hard and not properly cooked. We didn't even bother with dessert. We wonder if they even tasted their own food. Service was excellent. If you are eating at this hotel, Roy's is an excellent choice, but not Meritage.
