Located just off the square in Sonoma. Knew that it had to be good as there were as many locals as tourists dining there. Everyone had seafood. Fried calamari, not usually a favorite of mine, was quite flavorful and light. Drake's Bay oysters excellent. Salmon well prepared and excellent. Brought our own wine from one of the day's tasting tours.... More

It was my fiance's Birthday and out of the choice of restaurant's in Sonoma we chose this place. We came here for the vast selection of Seafood but it was not as large as we had hoped. The food was average, it was not awesome or terrible. It didn't start off great when we tried to order a starter and... More

We picked this restaurant due to some great reviews on Open Table. Shame on those that rated it so well. Well, we went and no wonder the place was nearly empty. Only a couple tables and then they turned people down at the door at 8:00PM. What? We later saw other restaurants just one block away nearly full. What do... More

I had heard about this place before leaving for our trip. I was impressed with what I had seen on the website, and wanted to visit this place right away. We were in Sonoma / Napa on a birthday trip along with a few other couples. Due to a packed itinerary , we were unable to get here until the... More

We stayed just around the corner from this restaurant so booked it knowing it was our first night in Sonoma having travelled all day from England. We walked past Meritage last year and thought it looked cosy and atmospheric. Glad we didn't walk past this time! Lovely little place. Staff were great and the menu choices excellent. Fabulous seafood choices.... More

During our first visit, a staff told us that they had happy hours for oysters from 4-6 pm so we went back on the following 2 days to enjoy half price for the open shell oysters. Staff were all very friendly. If I am in the area again, I will definitely return to this restaurant.

After hearing a few recommendations, we had dinner at Meritage. I guess we were underwhelmed, having gone in with high expectations. Our server was very good - attentive, helpful and charming. And, the house-made ice creams and sorbet were fantastic. Those were the highlights. Oysters were fair/nothing special. A prime rib special at $25 was well-priced, but flavors were only... More

We booked on december 30, by walking in, for new year's eve. They were able to accomodate us on such short notice, so we were a little skeptical. We arrived at the set time, and were seated within 10 minutes... Awesome! We ordered from the set new year's eve menu - very nice options... The food served was very good,... More
