ORDERED THE SEARED TUNA ENTREE. THE TUNA STEAK WAS GNARLY. IT HAD SOMETHING LIKE LIGAMENTS OR SKIN IN/ON IT. COULD NOT CUT IT WITH A KNIFE. WAS ABLE TO SCRAPE MAYBE A TABLESPOON OF MEAT OFF. THANKFULLY I WAS NOT CHARGED FOR THIS PLATE. MY WIFE'S MEAL WAS OUTSTANDING (KABOB TRIO). GREAT ATMOSPHERE, GOOD WINE LIST. A BAD NIGHT IN THE KITCHEN WON'T PREVENT US FROM RETURNING.

Went for Happy Hour with 2 friends. They had calamari, Clams Portuguese, and Scallops. They loved it. We had Scallops, grilled clams and shrimp cocktail. Best shrimp, firm and cold, perfect. I love Meritage, from the moment you walk in the door the hostess (s) greet us so nice. Our waiter Jen is always great and takes good care of us. The GM, Dave is always pleasant and great to talk with. It's a 5 star plus going there. Not only is Happy Hour great but a sit down dinner in the dinning room is as well. Food is fresh and consistent.

Chris was out waiter. Super great experience for us all. Friendly, professional and just overall professional and charming. We enjoyed our evening with him and also appreciated David coming to our table to greet us and spend time with us. Wine, food and service and venue were wonderful. Thank you for a special birthday for Mary and evening for us all.

All of our (5) dinners were excellent. My risotto special was good to the last grain! Our waiter, Jameson, was pleasant, friendly and interested in making sure we were satisfied with our dinners and drinks. He is definitely an asset to Meritage.

My birthday dinner at Meritage was fantastic. I had the pork medallions with the mustard & brown sugar sauce and it was delicious. As always, the mash potatoes were excellent...like mom's! The gnocchi dish was wonderful and the bacon & peas were fresh & flavorful. We finished with a dessert pizza (with a candle) and it was certainly generous enough to share and we finished the whole serving. Our server was amazing and very capable. I wish I could remember his name because he was very personable! This was a great night to celebrate and we'll return.

A fabulous way to spend one's birthday - especially on a Monday evening when one can have a free salad, appetizer, or pizza when ordering a gigantic Sangria!! Pear and gorgonzola as well as the wedge salads were each tasty and fresh. The arugula and fig jam pizza was scrumptious. The three of us loved our perfectly prepared dinner entrees, tender filet mignon with goat cheese and chive butter, pork roast with an apple bourbon glaze, and pork medallions gratinée!! Of course, a sweet dessert of S'mores, which we had to share due to how much we had eaten, was the crowning touch for the birthday princess!

With a warm welcome at the front door, great service and wonderful food; Meritage was on point again. The antipasto was amazing; probably enough for four people to share; the sirloin steak was cooked perfectly, and the swordfish special was amazing; one of the best I have had. Truth be told, we did wait a few minutes extra for our table to be ready, but it was so worth it!

We decided on Meritage to celebrate my birthday. We made reservations, on arriving a little early we went to the bar and had some very delicious sangrias. After only a 5 minute wait we were seated. Dinner was great my gnocchi carbonara with chicken and his lobster, shrimp and scallop cardinale was phenomenal ! Will definitely be back!

We went with friends for restaurant week. Meritage has one of the best restaurant week menus in RI: lots of choices for appetizers, entrees and dessert. Their regular menu is very good, too, something for everyone, even fussy eaters. The food is always good, and the service is also good, though on this night, dinner was slow to come out. However, they were busy, and we were enjoying catching up with our friends, so it was ok. We will go back.

Meritage is always a fantastic place to dine. It is beyond fantastic when it comes to East Greenwich Restaurant Week. Not only is the selection of menu items from appetizer to dessert very large and varied, but there are always specials from which one can choose their entree even when one is having the Restaurant week deal. My friend and I both paid a little more to have the Filet Mignon which was excellent. They also honor a request to substitute vegetables for the starch. And then for dessert, there are so many scrumptious desserts, and for those over 21, one has three after dinner drinks. We both chose the raspberry martini and it definitely lived up to our expectations. Meritage truly offers the very best Restaurant Week menu for choice, quality, and consistency throughout the state of RI.

Four friends went for Happy Hour. It was packed! The bar area was jamming, there was a party in one of the rooms, the dinning room was bustling. Make Reservations!!! Even when we go for Happy Hour we have reservations, because the food is so good and the people are great you need to make sure you have a table. Food was off the charts as usual, I don't know who the cook is, but I can safely say I've been going there Forever and never had a bad meal! And I mean Never! When you first walk in the Hostesses are the best, better than any restaurant I've been to. All the servers are on top of their game! We ask for Jen, she treats us very good. Happy Hour is 1/2 price all apps., and they are delicious. Plus a GM who is so personable and works hard to make sure everyone is happy. Thanks Dave!
