Meritage had always been our favorite restaurant in St. Paul, until our last visit. We stopped one day for lunch and left an hour and 15 minutes later without having eaten. What happened is not quite clear. However, the waiter should have noticed that the people in the tables on either side of us were seated later than we were,... More

We periodically go to Meritage, usually before a St. Paul Chamber Orchestra concert. We have never had a bad meal. The food and service are always excellent. There were 4 of us on our last visit. Two had lamb entrees, one a chicken dish and one had duck. All were extremely good. We plan to go back soon for another... More

Somehow this St. Paul gem gets overlooked in the overall scheme of "hot restaurants in the Twin Cities," yet I would put its food, ambiance, and service among the very elite. The menu changes with the seasons, so check the online menu for updates. Me, I'd go back for the crispy rabbit rillettes alone. Oh, and if you order frites,... More

While cycling on a lovely fall day we happened upon Meritage in downtown St. Paul and stopped for lunch. What a delightful suprise! I highly recommend the croque madame - it was amazing! A chilled crab and corn soup was also delicious. Food service was slow, otherwise a perfect lunch.

We indulge in fine dining at the Meritage Brassarie in St. Paul. The service is top notch with knowledgable staff that can explain how the menu dishes are prepared. The wine list is excellent. We took friends from California to the Meritage this past weekend. Again, we were impressed with the appetizers, wine, soup, salad, dinner, and dessert. We started... More

Just happened to try this restaurant because it had outdoor seating on a beautiful day. Service and food were both great and the day was beautiful.

Meritage reminds me of the wonderful restaurants of Paris. I have never been disappointed when choosing to dine here. Love the atmosphere, the food, and the service is top notch. The mussels are to die for. The raw oyster bar is amazing!

Our dinner was greeted with complimentary glasses of champagne, an anniversary card from the chef, and a very helpful and knowledgeable staff. Oysters Meritage was delicious, As were the duck and mussels. They have an extensive wine list and the desserts left us very impressed with this excellent restaurant.

We went here for our 5 year anniversary last week. Sat outside on the patio. It was such a nice atmosphere. They brought us champagne right when we sat down too! The server was knowledgable and friendly. Chef-owned restaurant, too. We had oysters and shrimp for an appetizer. Brought our own wine to cork for $25 fee. Dinner, I had... More
