Meritage an Urban Tavern at the JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort & Spa Ratings and Reviews
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.
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.
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 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.
Tyler was the best server. Great attitude, attention to detail and made it a point to ensure that we were happy and had a great experience. Will go back for sure.
This place used to be an upscale steakhouse that had really good food and service. The adjusted to a lower key ambience and I think they hit a home run. This is a great place for drinks and watching sports after golf but also a great restaurant for the family and a great atmosphere. Love it.
We had a wonderful dinner at this restaurant. I had a wedge salad, New York strip steak, and apple strudel for dessert. My wife had the meat loaf entree. Everything was delicious, well prepared, and fresh. Service was very friendly, attentive and prompt. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone interested in a tasty dinner in a lovely location.
Lovely place with outdoor dining, but VERY loud inside. Over-priced at $50 + for a simple lunch. Probably a big hit with vacationing golfers. Right outside the Marriott Pro Shop. The food was tasty, the service was great. But I wouldn't recommend it for anything but a special occasion because of the prices, the abundant big-screen TVs and the noise level. It's really just another sports bar. Fantastic, if that's what you're looking for while visiting the area and/or golfing at the resort.
The trout and the meatloaf were both good dishes. Nice list of beer / ale and wines by the glass. Service was good, though I caught the the server pass by looking to see if I had signed the credit card slip shortly after it was presented to me. Too obvious she wanted to clear out. I would go back and eat there again.
$16 Avocado toast nicely prepared with fixings. Burger tasty but not worth $17. Service attentive with good beer selection. Was very loud for a date night, couldn't hear each other. Not very elegant for a 5 star hotel. Ok with the Groupon but probably would not go back.
We went for a bachelorette party dinner. The service was somewhat slow but there were other big parties there too. Our waiter was kind but he was strange and kind of hovered over us in an intrusive way or we couldn't find him when we needed him. They comped our drinks even though we didn't complain at all. It appeared he could sense that we weren't very please. It took a half hour to get our drinks from the bar. He had the manager check on us which was nice. And he had desserts sent over for the table and the bachelorette.
