I'm always so surprised when I see a negative review for a place I consider to be excellent. It is always possible that any restaurant can have an off night, but more likely there are just certain people who you just cannot satisfy. This was our 2nd meal at Merge, our first being 3 years ago. At that meal, all... More

Our wait person was great. The wine by the glass is a generous pour and the wine list is nice. But the quality of the food from two years ago when we last visited Amelia Island for a month is a disappointment. I love Osso Buco. Traditional Italian is my favorite, but I enjoy most variations. Merge Restaurant's variation came... More

We enjoyed a terrific meal at Merge on a Monday night. Three foodies, all new to the location and we all felt the same. My salmon was perfectly cooked, the glaze and sweet potato purée perfectly balanced flavors. The flounder was also perfectly cooked, as was the sirloin steak with a really tasty sauce. Wine list was not huge, but... More

I normally don't write reviews, but I recently had a wonderfully relaxed and romantic dinner in honor of my birthday at Merge. In cozy, comfortable surroundings, my wife and I enjoyed some imaginative, innovative (great presentation!) cuisine that really impressed me! I'm a connoisseur of French Onion soup and I can honestly say Merge's version was one of the best... More

My experience at Merge was an outstanding one. My girlfriend and I recently dined here while she was visiting. Can you say WOW!! The entrees were out of this world. We both tried the sirloin and couldn't of been two happier girls. Very flavorful with a very reasonable price for an upscale restaurant. I definitely recommend this place if you... More

mobile review After reading all of the reviews from Urbanspoon and Tripadvisor, I thought that Merge would be a must try! I don't even know where to begin. I made reservations for a romantic dinner date because one site and comment said it was the "romantic date" dinner spot. Our dinner began with my girlfriend ordering the Onion Bisque and... More

Hands down this was the best dinner of our trip. The restaurant is small and is just outside of the "historic town" area. The ambiance was warm and cozy, and the service was very professional. Warm rolls were served with a seasoned butter; my main course was a delicious dish of scallops over leeks and pureed potatoes. Dessert was an... More

Our dinner here was the best we had in a five day vacation that included meals at the Jekykll Island Club Hotel and in the restaurant with the #1 TA rated restaurant on Amelia Island. It began with a basket of rolls served with an amazing compound butter (roasted leeks, pulverized porcini mushrooms and herbs mixed with sweet butter) and... More

A smallish restaurant in an old ( massively redone gas station) Merge does ambitious meals. Menu is varied and very well executed, though just on the salty side. They have beer and wine..no booze, and the wine list is fairly priced. Prices are more than fair. We just had three courses and wine for three for $150. Only negative is... More
