I've eaten at Meritage a few times a year over the past many years. The food and service has always been excellent. The most recent visit was on a Sunday evening after a play with a group of friends. I had the Sunday Supper 3 course prix fixe which was wonderful. It has been great to see this restaraunt expand... More

My wife and I along with two friends had an amazing night at Meritage. We are all foodies and love enjoying multi-course meals at great restaurants. Meritage did not disappoint! Our 3.5 hours disappeared and we were never rushed by our server Rollie. We started with perfect cocktails, 3 types of west coast oysters, starters (escargot, veggie puff pastry, foie... More

Lovely representation of fine French dining. Oyster ,wine and dessert selections superb. Duck presentation too rare for one guest but another felt it to be cooked perfectly, rare vs. well done. Our waiter, Rawley, was top notch.

Consistently amazing good food; warm and festive ambiance; upbeat and informed wait staff, and a very balanced menu--the right combination of innovative and classic; sanguine and savory; comfortable and sophisticated. St. Paul is vey lucky to have this culinary gem at its center.

Okay, my friend and I had a bit of sticker shock when we perused the menu, but we decided to stay, anyway. Appetizers were true tiny bites (really, we each got about 3 bites) exquisitely presented, and wonderfully flavorful. The pommes frites with bernaise sauce were the best french fries I've ever had, a great treat for a table of... More

Many of the high-quality French restaurants in the Twin Cities area are pretty stuffy, although the food is superb. Meritage is an exception to this! The menu was delectable offering fresh, authentic options. The ambiance is wonderful, classy but casual. We enjoyed sparkling rose, fresh raw oysters, escargot and pomme frites. Everything was fantastic and the service was very enthusiastic... More

This place just does it perfect on all counts -- at least for the 5 times or so I've been here. I've been to countless bistro's in the world (including Paris) and I would still rate Meritage as one of my favorites -- especially in the winter months when they have a divine Cassoulet -- my all-time favorite winter meal!...

I had lunch last week while visiting MSP. i love this place and have never been disappointed with the service or food. I started with a Bloody Mary that was delicious - just the right amount of spice. For lunch I had the Mussels with Pommes Frites (served with Bearnaise sauce - yum!) Maybe the best Mussels I have ever... More

This was our first time to Meritage, chosen because of its close proximity to the Ordway and our ability to valet park for the evening! The meal and service though were wonderful. Just an overall great experience!
