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

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
