“Great place”
Reviewed July 16, 2014 via mobile

We have been coming to the area for years. Had always enjoyed Wild Thyme. Delighted to report that it's replacement is even better. Food was excellent, fairly priced,good wine selection. Service was good but not great. We will definitely come back. We had dinner and will try for lunch next time

“Knew it was going to be good!”
Reviewed July 15, 2014 via mobile

Ate at Meritage with friends right after they first started serving dinner. Service was slow and there were a couple of suggestions we made that were taken graciously and seriously. In spite of slow service (understandable) the food was quite good. We felt that given time to work out the bugs Meritage would be a great addition to Highlands.

“Highland's new restaurant, Meritage is a winner!”
Reviewed July 3, 2014

After Wild Thyme relocated to Main Street, we were afraid this charming location would go to waste. We should not have been concerned. This new restaurant provides great food; great atmosphere; and wonderful service. I highly recommend this addition to Highlands.

“Meatloaf Beatloaf”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

Had the pleasure of dining here. The property was Ghangri last year and Wild Thyme before that. We had a lobster and pasta dish that was to die for (as apparently some huge lobster did) and the meatloaf sandwich. It was pretty good too but I would have liked it to be bigger and greasier like Dan Marino's in Lauderdale used to be before they shuttered. It was still really good though. Let me tell you about the service. Simply flawless. The girl that waited on us was perfect. When I was just thinking, "Hey, I'd like another glass of wine", Shazam!, there she was like some kind of mind reader or some super-hero waitress. Check it out, you won't be disappointed.

“Great Food at a Great Price”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

Just two blocks off Main Street in Highlands sits Meritage Bistro. Like a lot of the restaurants in Highlands, it offers a focused menu full of flavor. The service was outstanding and the meal, chicken, was as good as any I've had in the higher priced restaurants of Highlands. Do yourself a favor when your in Highlands and visit Meritage Bistro for dinner.
