The food and service were exceptional, as always. Our friends had not been to Meritage before, and they very much enjoyed the experience. The only issue was that we were at a corner table by the windows, and since it was a windy and chilly night, we felt the cold. You might want to consider curtains or insulation before the winter descends.

I highly recommend Meritage! We were served by Sharon (I hope that was her name) and she made some excellent suggestions. My friend and I shared a 1/2 price Monday wine special, delicious mussels in a herb wine broth, a crunchy Brussels Sprouts salad and yummy Sherry Shrimp. A perfect flourless chocolate espresso tart to top it off. Very happy for this find!

I’ve been a guest at Meritage several times, but none of the rest of our party of 7 had visited. We all enjoyed our meal and the service was very good.

The best menu I’ve seen in a long time! Flexible and for all size appetites! Charcuterie was quality and generous servings ! The beet salad was original healthy and delicious! Definitely returning to this gem.

Small portions, even with “large” plates. Had duck dinner, two small pieces of breast. Not sliced, fat left on. Very disappointing. Seafood paella skimpy, not very flavorful. Service was very good, as was the wine.

Great food, great service. Imaginative menu makes this a local favorite for something different. Small plates make dinner an adventure where you're not committing to a full entree of something you're interesting in trying.

Food has definitely got Worse. Cheese and meet board good, but the other dishes including meet balls were too salt and the octopus buried in mayo like past.

We loved this place!!! Beautiful setting, great atmosphere, outdoor seating and bonus: Across the street from AMC theater and a perfect go to spot for any occasion. The wine list is impressive as is the menu. Everything we had, as recommended by staff, was fantastic. We went for a light bite after a late afternoon movie but will definitely be going back. We left too early for the live music. A GREAT find in Glen Cove. 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

This place is excellent. The wine/drink option are great and the food/setting was excellent. Loved the service, very attentive and friendly. Enjoyed it so much that we went last Friday and return on Sunday with another group. Got to meet the chef and enjoy some foods we had never before tried. Not to be missed.

i have eaten here a couple of times. i was surprised at this understated place. just a block from the movies, great for before or after or anytime. the place has a very minimalistic but classy, cool ambiance. very clean and well kept. the staff is friendly and attentive. the menu is mostly tapas size plates (which i enjoy) and several large plates. the food is well prepared and very tasty! the drinks are also well constructed.
i was there last Sat night and must report some things that i found outstanding. First my guest and i split a salad which was served on two plates so we didnt have to do it... nice. I order a flank steak tapas and ravioli. My gf ordered the salmon well done. the ravioli and steak were perfectly prepared but the salmon was a bit under cooked ans was sent back. We asked to just give it a few more minutes on fire. To our surprise the entire salmon was redone to perfection AND they re-did both the steak and ravioli so we could enjoy "hot" food at the same time. we told them that it was not necessary but they insisted! I have never seen customer service like that. I was very impressed as they have set a very high bar with that type of service.
Additionally, after enjoy a cocktail each, we asked for another drink that we would share. They prepared the drink as 2 smaller drinks each with rimmed glasses and garnishes. i have never seen that before and was quite taken by that!
We will definitely continue to frequent Meritage. When you do the right thing, treat customers like guests and do it with grace and a smile you create long term clients that refer friends.... thats what they have accomplished.... ty

We have had several meals at Meritage and like the options for entrees and small plates which have all been delicious. The 3 rooms and separate bar that keeps the noise level down. The wait staff is very polished and very accommodating but best of all is the wine list which offers a great selection from many of the best wine regions from around the world at reasonable prices.

Very nice charming place one block from AMC theater. Very clean nice space tastefully done. Mostly small dishes. service was attentive until they got busy. food was well prepared. we didnt know they have music , dj, after 930 on sat night. we had to leave before. that would have been interesting to see and hear. only one complaint which is significant. i had ordered the Paella. The ingredients were listed in the menu. i dont eat scallops and there was no mention of them in the dish. when the dish came there were scallops in it. Plus there was never a question of food allergies. when i told the waitress she replied "i know, sorry". The floor manager said she would bring it to the chefs attention. it should be brought to the owners attention. besides that it was a pleasant find and i will return

The food and service was first class and a prime location. It was lively and fun, worth every penny. Celebrity Chef Anne Burrell was dining a few tables over and also appeared to be enjoying the food and her company.
