We met another couple here for dinner, this is a favorite spot to dine for them - our first visit. It was a lovely evening and we choose to sit outside, our server was wonderful. Our meals were expertly prepared and beautifully plated. We especially enjoyed the octopus started! Along with the cocktail of the moment. And don't forget dessert!... More

Jud was our server and a friend. We had numerous small plates and dessert. Honestly every single item on every single small plate was perfection. From a potato leek vichyssoise, to a lamb firecracker roll, to stunning duck nachos and a flatbread pizza with spring vegetables roasted garlic cork Persian lamb meatballs pine nuts and cilantro with mint pesto.

Meritage has been my go-to restaurant since the day it opened. The menu is always changing and creative, the service is outstanding, and the cocktails are fantastic - try the Gold Coast for a special treat. Meritage is one of the best restaurants in Milwaukee - fine dining at its best and a fantastic value.

We had heard from friends that Mirage had a diverse menu and good quality food. That was an understatement. Both the food and the service were excellent and prices were fair for the high quality. Also very family friendly as we had our two year old grandson with us.

This was our second time at Meritage and we could not have been more pleased with the meal and service. Our server Judd was very helpful explaining the specials and answering our questions with the knowledge one would expect from a well seasoned server. His personality was was very upbeat, openly warm and a credit to Meritage. The assistant servers... More

The chef here is creative, the food somewhat unusual, the staff friendly, and if you can eat outside, the ambiance is neat. It's a small patio tucked away in the city, heaters add a cozy touch.

Our first time but won't be our last. Rochelle, our waitress, was very helpful and cordial. We both had duck, prepared different ways. Both were excellent. Chocolate cake was great. We will be back and will bring friends.

Meritage is a place one can visit more than once, as the menu regularly evolves to incorporate seasonal availability. On this most recent visit, the food and service were overall terrific. The plates, including the appetizers, were well prepared and presented. The portions were more than adequate. I would have hoped for a bit more seasoning in my lamb entree,... More
