This restaurant is located in an old building that has been nicely renovated.The menu is the same for both lunch and dinner, with plenty of choices of salads, small plates, sandwiches, and full entrees. That makes it a little pricey for lunch (my sandwich was $11, and more reasonable at dinner-time. There was a special menu for lunch with a... More

The service and food are consistently fantastic. This destination is a good value for the money for those who enjoy fine dining. For those on a tighter budget, the portions are generally big enough to split an entree. I hope this restaurant stays in business for a long time!

Just celebrated our anniversary with a great meal at this neighborhood restaurant in the Glendale area of Cincinnati, an historic neighborhood north of the city. Well worth the trip. We both had the Sunday seafood 3-course special and wine sampling. My wife had the scallops and I had the Salmon. Both were excellent. We let the staff choose the wines... More

I'm glad I finally stopped to try the Meritage lunch. Great queso dip and chili. I'll surely be back again, soon. I think my server was named Victoria? Great service from start to finish.

A delicious getaway - close to home - my husband's favorite place to eat. He LOVES the scallops here. My favorite is the cheeseburger. You haven't had a cheeseburger until you've had it here...lettuce, tomato, pickles, onions, mayo, ketchup, delicious bun, wonderful burger with melted cheese. LARGE meal with fries. It's a quiet place where you can relax and enjoy... More

We love to come here for lunch and for after work wine and relax time. They've got really good food and a nice wine list. Check out their website for their wine tastings, special dinners and live music. This is a great place for casual gatherings or special events. Always a nice experience.

First time checking this place out. Very pleased. Had the cream of mushroom soup and the cajun salmon wrap. It's slightly more than what I would normally pay for lunch, but would still come back once in awhile. Hopefully I can check it out soon sometime with my wife for dinner.

After a short visit with some friends in the area, DH and I, along with another couple, went here for the first time a few weeks ago on a Saturday evening. We arrived around 8:30 and the restaurant was half full; we were seated immediately. Our server was pleasant, knowledgeable about food and drink, answered our questions with honesty and... More

My wife and I visited Meritage for a late lunch. The service was fantastic. The ambiance is nice and it was easy to carry on a conversation. The restaurant is not far from Rt. 275 and well worth going to. We both had fish (I had bass and she had salmon). Very well prepared. Prices are higher than chain restaurants,... More
