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

I really enjoyed this place. Is a bit expensive (considering that plates are quite small), but the atmosphere, food and cocktails are amazing. A must

I have gone here a couple times. I am probably not the best reviewer of the Meritage because I love steak and do not love seafood. It is a good choice insofar as it offers a broader range of foods than many restaurants. The last time I was there, every steak was overcooked. I suspect that the steaks were cooked... More

Was in St Paul to visit the Farmers Market and stopped off afterwards at Meritage for Sunday brunch - so glad we did. It was into early afternoon when we sat down so it was a bit quiet - which I prefer. Staff were all friendly. Even though it was just brunch the food was really excellent - I can... More

My wife and i celebrated our 46th wedding anniversary here and had a memorable experience. Seating is no problem on a Sunday evening as it seems as if St Paul all but closes down even before sunset. The decor is pretty much identical to a cafe in France except all the seats are not facing outward. Our waiter was prompt,... More

Cocktails are our thing and we love to find bars that prepare fine cocktails. Our benchmark is 1806 in Melbourne, Aust. Meritage was superb - with a friendly and witty bartender who deftly prepared our drinks while we watched. We also enjoyed some pre-dinner oysters and were provided with a very detailed explanation by the Oyster guy concerning the local... More
