“Great food, service OK.”
Reviewed August 14, 2012

Had dinner for 2 and breakfast for 2 and 4, all meals were outstanding in terms of food quality, quantity, and presentation. Service was OK but not up to food standard. Ambiance (nice bay view from window tables) and overall value fine.

“Excellent Birthday Dinner”
Reviewed June 14, 2012

I just took my wife to the Meritage for her birthday dinner. We arrived at 6 pm just as they opened with very few others seated. We experienced a very welcoming reception, and especially attentive service. They brought three choices of fresh rolls, then a complimentary asparagus soup that was delicious. My wife had the scallops (melt in your mouth) and I the lamb (with incredibly fresh vegetables). We finished with a creme brulee that was one of the tastiest I've ever had! Plus they brought my wife a complementary ice cream dessert complete with candle. So kudos for service and cuisine!

“A bit lacking”
Reviewed May 24, 2012

My wife and I had a romantic dinner. We started with a nice window seat. The table was bare with no flowers, just a white table cloth. The view was not was we expected, since the restaurant is on the main floor. We thought we would see the Bay, but instead had a view of the tennis courts, which was nice, but not great. The food was good, but not good enough for the price. In Berkeley there are many fine restaurants that are worth the price.
