Meritage Wine Bar
Flourless Chocolate Torte
Bufala, Arugula, Tomatoes, Balsamic, Pepita Pesto
Loud, frantic, unrecognizable music unsuitable for dining. Inedible beet salad: too sour and drenched in vinegar. Short rib gnocchi pasta dish lacking meat. Strange, jarring artwork. Why add frizze lettuce to side dishes?
Absolutely delicious, with charming friendly service.
We love Meritage Wine Bar. Their Charcuterie is fantastic with grapes, olives, walnuts and more. We ate outside which was quiet, but the noise level is higher inside, the only negative of this local favorite.
Another great job by all. Bottomless mussels and good wine!
This place is killing it. Great food and drinks, nice wine list and great promotions and staff. Going back tonight for bottomless mussels!
One of the best restaurants in the Glen Cove area. The small plates concept allows you to try a number of dishes and everything we have tried has been great. Service was top notch, the wine selection is value packed and the food was uniformly good. Definitely a family favorite.
Meritage is consistently enjoyable. My gal pal and I meet here for dinner almost every month, and we always like it.
One of our favorite restaurants in Glen Cove. Creative cuisine with global influences. Thoughtful paring of food with their excellent wine portfolio. Casual yet professional service staff.
New discovery for us, and have already been there a few times!! Excellent service and food.
Really enjoyed Meritage-food, vibe, service- all great!
Had a terrific dinner here at Meritage to celebrate our 12 th anniversary. From appetizers to dessert we enjoyed every bite.
Have enjoyed numerous evenings here from happy hours seated at the bar with their knowledgeable mixologist Paul … (love his spicy specialty drinks) with a warm and inviting no rush home town feel to luxurious dinners in the dining room that can be super charged with a packed dinner service inside and outside but somehow running with a fine tuned staff. It is evident that the waitstaff has been working together for some time and know what they’re doing. That by the way can make or break a meal! Praise goes to a competent manager who is sure to pay attention to details. This restaurant has truly risen to a new level in the last year in our opinion. ( Both of us have been in the business since the 70’s )
The chef is making his mark and I’m so happy to see an owner give his chef free reign to use the finest ingredients and not fall into the trap of cheap shortcuts. It’s rare these days especially after covid to be-able to still execute and deliver fresh complex innovative dishes and remain affordable. I look forward to my next visit … have to have more homemade pasta! Yes!
Thanks to all the staff for a wonderful evening!
Good food pleasant experience
The service was friendly & professional. Welcoming and warm
My friend Terry wanted to have dinner, so I suggested Meritage. Although she’s lived in Glen Cove her entire life, she’d never eaten here. I’ve enjoyed many dinners here with family and friends, so it was my recommendation that we meet at Meritage.
The menu was very good, and we each had a salad (she the beets, and I the Caesar). Then Terry had the short rib sandwich, and I had the burrata sandwich. They were huge! I had to peel off the top bread layer to eat it, and it was delicious. Terry enjoyed hers, too, and recollected that she had it for take-out awhile ago. Our server, Francesco, was helpful and attentive. He brought us our cappuccinos and plates so we could split a flourless chocolate cake, which was the perfect ending to a wonderful dinner.
Meritage is a favorite restaurant of mine in Glen Cove.
The menu, wine list, cocktail list and service at Meritage are excellent. The only disappointment during our lovely meal was the lack of regular coffee and espresso - they only had decaf available. My concern is that with a lively bar business, the lack of coffee with caffeine does not seem like a good idea.
Great Small plates and of course wine and drink selections. We asked for a taste of a wine we were not familiar with and it was readily provided. It was not to our choosing but that was no problem. The staff is very good. In fact they ran out of vanilla ice cream that night so a new dessert choice was on the house. We will be back
Always the best time here!
We will be going back for sure! Every thing was great. We had a large chartucherrie board and small plates, delicious wine. Only complaint was its a bit pricey.
I booked a reservation for this restaurant for my friend’s birthday. I am not from the area and never visited this establishment before. I found it online, referred to their lovely Instagram account, and later heard from a coworker that this was a nice place. When we arrived, we ordered different wine tasting flights, but also shared a pita spread, charcuterie board, along with two small plates. This was all followed by a delicious dessert of the ice cream chocolate chip cookie sandwich and churros. I was pleasantly surprised that this abundance and variety was reasonably priced for a party of two, which made celebrating my friend’s birthday so much more special and exciting. I look forward to spending future special occasions at this wine bar. All of the wines were fantastic, including the yes way rosé tasting flight!! We occupied our table for close to three hours In the back room and as the other patrons finished and the tables were cleared, the staff did not rush us to leave while they were setting up for a dancing room & DJ. A great experience was had by all. We are very satisfied!
Very good food in a welcoming atmosphere. Our server was very nice, knowledgeable & provided good service. Monday’s are 1/2 price on bottles of wine and also bottomless modules. They were very accommodating to our party of 7.
Good food in a nice atmosphere. Enjoyed our meal immensely.
It’s always a wonderful experience going to Meritage
Good for family, girls night out and date night! Love it here !
We had the cauliflower and meat balls to start, a must.
For dinner we had the truffle pasta, braised short rib pasta and the chilean sea bass.
Everything was wonderful and the service was great too.
I can't wait to go back
Everything was good , except my only suggestion would be for the staff to follow lead with the patrons.. If they would like to pace their stay and experience. suggesting that people are waiting for a table to ignore them , but there was nobody waiting for our table. The service was too attentive and we felt very rushed. It wasn’t just our server, it was various staff members who kept coming over and rushing us. We were in and out in one hour and there was nobody waiting for our table.
Always delicious food, good wine, attentive but unobtrusive service.
Veronica was so welcoming as soon as we walked in and our server, Damien, was an absolute delight. The ambiance, food and friendly staff made my mom’s birthday all that much more great. Will definitely be returning in the future :)
Love everything about this place; food is amazing and reasonably priced and staff couldn’t be better. Keep up the great work Meritage!
Another good outing. Great drinks, raw bar and mussels. Next stop Monday night for bottomless $20 mussels! Good job guys!
As expected Meritage Wine Bar steakhouse night popup was amazing!!
We started with the market potatoes and chipotle butter which were full of flavor along with a rosé flight which was so fun! Had no idea they had flights
Entrees of filet mignon (a special cut tonight!) with red wine butter and skirt steak with red wine jus (I literally wanted to dunk everything in it and even straight up drink it). The chef even brought out a surprise treat of beef tataki to sample from their special menu Tuesday night and honestly I wouldve ordered a tray of it, absolutely incredible sweet flavor.
Side of truffle mac (full of truffle flavor and extra creamy) and some of the best onion rings I’ve ever had, that breading was WOW
To end was a perfectly warm pina colada bread budding with toasted coconut topped ice cream, divine!!!
The staff is always so lovely and great ambiance, can’t wait to go back! Thank you☺️
Great oysters,mussels and cocktails. Great Service! See you next week!
We had a wonderful meal at Meritage! Truffle pasta and a beet salad were among my favorites. Service is inexperienced and forgot two items : ie shrimp for the salad, a drink . Just need a little patience but it’s worth it fir the great quality good!
Diverse variety Southern Mediterranean plates.
Food was amazing but service was very very slow.
I love Meritage. The food is always wonderful, the service is friendly and attentive, and the ambience is relaxed.
Very nice ambiance and everything that we ordered was delicious. Good variety of food choices on the menu and interesting cocktails and wine selection.
Had many a wonderful dining experience here before the pandemic. This was the first one after. Delicious charcuterie and fine Paring pinot noir. Excellent, varied menu, ranging from small plates to an extensive selection of full plates. You won't get lost in the small but excellent wine list and we've never had anything on it that wasn't a winner. Highly recommended.
Great service and food
One of my favorite restaurants everything was wonderful. Will be back very soon. So happy to be back out.
We had a wonderful experience. The service was excellent Abby the food was great
