With business in Sharonville, I searched for a great restaurant, and found Meritage. A great find! I knew when we walked in that this was going to be a great experience. The warm friendly greeting from the Maître d was kind and genuine. Clair, our waitress was also friendly as well as knowledgeable and attentive. The menu was wonderful, and... More

8 enjoyed a wonderful meal as a celebration. All of the food was just wonderful. I had the fish special and it was just perfect. Can't wait to visit again.

When I asked my customer if we could continue the discussion over lunch he recommended we try Meritage. I was not disappointed. Lovely old house that has been converted into great dining spot. Lots of charm but not much parking space. I parked down the street, perhaps a block away. We shared the scallops (appetizer portion) as a starter, cooked... More

My husband and I enjoyed dinner at Meritage for the first time last night. Everything was wonderful from the moment we entered until we left. I had the Meritage salad, delicious with pears, walnuts, bacon and brie. We both had goat cheese crusted filets and I also had a lobster tail. The steaks were tender and flavorful. Highly recommend!

We stopped at Meritage based on a review my (self-proclaimed foodie) wife found online listing this restaurant as one of Cincinnati's finest. We were not disappointed. After a long day of shopping, we had dinner at this establishment prior to returning home from our day trip. My wife had the prime rib, perfectly cook to medium rare, and I had... More

I had the lobster special. Lobster was undercooked, basically raw . The rest of the food was over seasoned. Salad was bland. My friend had the hamburger and was happy. Atmosphere is nice

Meritage is now well established as an excellent restaurant, and it is no wonder. Without a reservation (admittedly, early on a quiet Sunday evening) we were welcomed warmly by the manager, and served graciously and expertly throughout the meal. The waiter was knowledgeable and accommodating. As ever, the food was excellent. At our table, we had a prime rib, a... More

We had our fifteenth wedding anniversary dinner at Meritage last evening. Granted, it's pricey but this was a special occasion. They've done a great job with the old building; it's contemporary and comfortable. I had the linguini with shrimp, fresh garlic and pesto. It was quite excellent. Joyce had the petit filet and twice baked potato...the filet was larger than... More

This place has become my wife's favorite dining place. Small dining area but most people are locals and atmosphere is very laid back. Any meal is a delight whether lunch or dinner.

Went to Meritage for a nice V-Day dinner. Great location, and fun atmosphere - a bit of a hidden gem of Cincinnati. Food was good and the portions were ample as well. Their menu was pretty focused and had a good quality feel to it. Bruschetta was very good, as well as their salad. Prime rib for dinner was perfectly... More
