The entrance to the place can be a little noisy through the bar. Take the elevator or stairs to the second floor. It appeared to busier downstairs. The ambiance is nice uprstairs...walked into a sitting area, where they check your coats and bags. The dining room was not busy for a Friday night, but steady. The water view is always... More

We have had Sunday brunch at Meritage for family occasions twice and enjoyed the experience both times. The refined menu is well-conceived and the service very attentive. Our waiter, quite a gentleman from Puebla, Mexico, even proved himself an excellent photographer when I handed him my camera for a family portrait. The menu is prix fix with ample choice. The...

The menu is extensive and the head chef is always extremely creative. This enables the Restraunt to stay at the top of its game. The service is very god and the staff caters to your every whim. It is an extremely enjoyable dining experience. Pricey but worth it.

Celebrating our 20th anniversary, we wanted fine dining with a view. That brought us to Meritage. At the suggestion of the waiter, I ordered the Chef's Table, which includes wine pairings with each course. It featured an incredible mushroom soup, cod, and pheasant. At $125, it's actually a good value, if you like wine. The views are great as is... More

Having read some great reviews we were so looking forward to this restaurant. We were staying in the hotel. ..which is great. It's an interesting concept to break the menu down into wine paired groups. The hotel has a great position and the restaurant is certainly nice. But service was confused at best. It's very good that they work as... More

This place has a view, an atmosphere and humble staff with a sweat French accent. The lamb is splendid. And Chataeu Lafite Rothschild 1989 from Pauillac was an experience. They still have two bottles in their cellar ;)

We'd read favorable reviews of Meritage in various places and arrived to be a tiny bit disappointed that it was part of a hotel. However, our disappointment quickly vanished as we were shown to a quaint but spacious upstairs room with a view over the water from Rowe's Wharf and tables amply spaced to allow private conversation without the "forced...

Came here on a week night and setting outside lovely by the water, though we were seated inside. The service was fine and menu good but the food just didn't quite live up to expectations. Boston just can't make the grade when it comes to fantastic food... Always lets down by the simple things being badly cooked.... Soft shell crab... More

The Meritage restaurant is located in one of the finest hotels in Boston and can easily boast of one of the finest dining harbor views in the city. Along with that, the restaurant is elegant without being stuffy. Although a sport jacket is recommended, only about four men were wearing jackets the evening we were there. My wife and I... More
