The hubs surprised me with birthday dinner here. Overall, it was quite good. Menu is very limited but has inventive choices on it (rabbit spring rolls, which I never thought I would like, were quite good). I don't know if they have a wine list as it was never presented to us (a friend had pre-purchased wine as a surprise... More

I can't praise our meal at Merge enough! We had the house salad with a delicious French dressing that was light and woke up our taste buds. For entrees we ordered the sea scallops with risotto and the special of the day which was braised short ribs. Both dishes were the perfect union of savory flavors. I hesitate to order... More

Based on all the reviews, we had to dine at Merge. All the accolades written by the previous reviewers were so accurate. The restaurant is located just outside of the historic district and I must say a horrible location but that is the only thing I could say negative. I made our reservation through Open Table and we were greeted... More

After having had a truly wonderful dinner at Merge, we were amazed there wasn't a line around the block waiting to get in. There were only two other tables occupied while we were there. The citrus seared scallops were outstanding as was the filet. We would have been happy to try anything on the creative menu.

The duck was amazing. A small very quiet place. We found a delicious secret. Limited choices for kids, but my son enjoyed a very nice and affordable kids steak. We will visit again.

We had an absolutely terrific dinner with Adam at Merge. The blackened snapper was tremendous and the crab nudi was not only a first for us, but one of the most unique dishes we've every had. The portion sizes were huge! We cannot wait to eat it again! The atmosphere was great, our wine was great, our server was great....... More

We walked in and there was only 1 couple seated (about 6-8 tables). Not a good sign. But when the rabbit spring roll and couscous salad appetizers arrived, our taste buds were very happy. I had the short rib special, which was outstanding and my wife had scallops over risotto, which she said was the best ever. The good thing... More

Adam and his staff continue to be one of the few restaurants on the island with a regularly changing menu and his latest is again full of wonderful food. The couscous salad with melon and mint was a perfect starter for this hot season. The snapper with a corn, and the duck were wonderful. They cheerfully filled my request to... More

I was pleasantly surprise by my dinner at Merge. The chef greeted us and patiently described each dish. I chose the house salad with a fabulous homemade French dressing, the scallop dinner with risotto and apricot cheesecake. Simply amazing. Highly recommend. I will definitely return when I'm in town.

The ambiance is not perfect but the food certainly is. Never has any of us had a bad dish. The fish is great.but so is the duck the osso bucco the salads. The quality and personal attention by the chef is unmatched. Lastly, good wine list, reasonably priced.
