Father's Day brunch at Meritage was excellent. Once seated, the service was outstanding, Bloody Mary's tasty, scones perfect and dishes everything we had hoped for. This is really a top notch restaurant in St Paul. If only the weather had cooperated enough to allow use of the outdoor patio...

The oysters and tuna taco were fantastic to start the meal but the duck was incredible! The service was prompt but unassuming. It was truly a wonderful dining experience.

We chose Meritage based on previous reviews here but who couldn't resist this downtown restaurant with outdoor, sidewalk dining just like you'd find in Paris? We ate inside to take in the restaurant's tiled floors, old mirrors, tall ceilings, and wood paneling. The bread and fresh butter were worth the trip. Their traditional escargot started the meal with six bites... More

Meritage is our favorite Twin Cities restaurant. The food is magnificent. Let me say that again: the food is not just excellent, it is magnificent. The oyster menu makes me happy. The way they treat fish is magical. The atmosphere reminds me of Paris, as does the refined service, though of course it's also as relaxed as it is professional.... More

I ate at Meritage a couple of weeks ago, I had a salad and the braised lamb shank which was quite tasty. I travel alone so I sat at the bar where the service was good, I believe the restaurant has the feel of a French bistro and was pretty full when I was there during midweek. They do alarge... More

Best food in Saint Paul, where else can you get fresh oysters, bone marrow and wonderful french prepared foods? This is simply the best, and great service to boot!

This is a wonderful restaurant. Its small, quaint and intimate. Its has genuine european feel. The food and the atmosphere are terrific. The oysters and steak are consistently amazing. They prepare a limited number of meals but they are all excellent.

We had Mother's Day brunch at Meritage, and the place is all it is claimed to be. The atmosphere is just lovely, the food is simple and wonderful and smart, the service is absolutely impeccable. We sat outside and pretended we were in Paris. The timing of the service was perfect; often where so many places fall down. Even the... More

Forgot that I mentioned it was our anniversary when I made the reservation. The staff did not. Our waiter stopped by as soon as we were seated with a card from Chef Klein and a glass of bubbly! We started with some of the best raw oysters we have ever eaten, followed by perfectly cooked lamb with pea-mint purée that... More
