My wife and I enjoyed our dinner at Meritage. We hadn't been there for a while and were glad that it still had a good friendly atmosphere with creative and relatively healthy offerings. Meritage seems to be aiming more for the "foodie" crowd, which really isn't our thing. That's still fine, although the menu choices were fairly limited. (That said,... More

This is a small intimate place with outstanding food. The menu items are not like anything you would find elsewhere. Very creative and very good.Great service completes a wonderful experience. Also ask for a punch card...it will get you a $20 certificate after spending $200.

Meritage is a gem. Consistently great food. Local sources. Interesting seasonal options. Always a great vegetarian choice. Reasonably priced/very good wines. Make a reservation. You won't be disappointed.

My friends and I went to Meritage after hearing good things about it and were blown away by this hidden gem. First off, it is a fairly small restaurant and they do pack the tables in so if you are going on a weekend night I would recommend getting a reservation. While the packed in atmosphere made it a livelier... More

Meritage is in a renewed area of Milwaukee. The food is healthy, interesting, mouth wateringly delicious. Excellent service. The tables are a bit close together so it is a noisy, lively ambiance.

It deserves the wonderful reviews that it gets. The food is delicious. The menu is awesome, and then you get there and the specials are even better. They offered some awesome tapas last time we we stopped in. The wait staff is very good as well. We go for dinner on weekdays and it tends to be slow. Shhh...don't tell... More

Meritage will not disappoint any taste buds. The chef changes menus occasionally adding the season's best in a very flavorful way. The salmon 'is to die for ' in my husband's words and has been his choice everytime we visit. The bar is fully equipped with a wonderful staff and the wait staff cannot be beat. Make reservations to get... More

Meritage has gotten rave reviews for its use of local food products and a terrific wine selection to go with the outstanding food. Oftentimes, when a restaurant gets wonderful reviews it is based on an unwarranted reputation. Not Meritage. It deserves its accolades. We started out with appetizers: a Lamb pizza (to die for) and ricotta gnocchi with scallops (very... More
