Meritage Restaurant + Wine Bar
This restaurant is a hidden gem. We tried the tasting menu with wine pairing and it was so good. We were warmly welcomed and had a relaxed night. They charged $100 for 6 course dinner and $45 for wine pairing. Really good value for money.
Fantastic food, wine and service. We had the 6 course tasting menu with paired wine. Every forkful and sip of wine was wonderful. Well worth the cost. My wife and I really appreciate fine dining and this was an outstanding experience. Thank you to the chef and service - excellent!
We didn’t like this place at all. The food was just ok and expensive for no reason. The service is good but I won’t be going back.
Came here to celebrate after graduation. We had to alter our reservation 2 hours before (one member of our party had an emergency and couldn't make it and we moved it from 7pm to 6pm), but we called and the staff dealt with it very swiftly and kindly.
Upon arriving, they gave us champagne to celebrate. Throughout the night, the service was extremely nice. We were served an amuse bouche of tuna poke. For appetizers, we had semolina dumplings and Spanish octopus. The octopus was cooked perfectly and wasn't chewy at all.
For mains, we got the short rib, the sea bream, and the scallops. Again, all were cooked perfectly and were paired with interesting ingredients (macadamia nuts, honeydew sauce, etc.)
For dessert, we shared the Black Forest cake and the Filbert hazelnut torte. The Black Forest cake was decadent and smooth and the Torte was light and refreshing.
Afterward, they gave us a little fruit jelly/preserve and madeleines. While leaving, they gave us each a little chocolate box too.
Overall, it was a great experience with great food, kind service, and a great view.
Great service, classy environment, good food, wide wine selection
FANTASTIC food and even better paired with wine. Great presentation and the flavors were outstanding.
We celebrated our ten year anniversary here. It was a well-paced tasting menu with friendly and attentive service.
Perfect! What a lovely restaurant. The food, the service, the seating and tableware – everything was of the highest quality. The amuse bouche, the salad, our scallop and chicken cordon bleu entrees, the coffee, the wine....so delicious. Can’t wait to visit again.
Excellent restaurant. Nice ambient and great food.
Great overall experience. Service was attentive but not intrusive. Appetizers and entrees were both tasty and aesthetically pleasing. Dessert was great. We had a concert to get to and the staff did a good time keeping us on time.
Excellent wine list. Each course was equally enjoyable although I do favor the fois gra. Our server was exceptional and met all our request. We will be back soon.
Wonderful evening at the Meritage. They accommodate my request for view given the special occasion. Service was fantastic. Only 4 stars for food because although it was really good, the bisque and the fried crab weren't warm, there was nothing on the dessert menu that tempted us, and the mise-en-bouche and bread were interesting but not amazing. Overall experience fantastic though. Totally recommend
The service, including host, was superb. My friend and I ordered the pre fixe with wine pairing menu. The food was well balanced, delicious, and the pairings brought out the best in the menu. The view was perfect, as well. This restaurant is not modern, in such a good way. It’s classic fresh with an emphasis on service, which is a rare find these days. I will return when in Boston!
Heritage is one of the finest restaurants in Boston. In the heart of downtown with a beautiful view of the harbor. The service was extraordinary without being intrusive. The noise level is low enough for quiet conversation and the tables are well spread out. The prices are not excessively high and the food is wonderful. Definitely right at the top of my list for special occasions.
Fine dining experience with a lovely Boston harbor view. The staff jumped through hoops to accommodate our over-changing schedule. The food was done to a perfection with the exception of the desert. The kitchen can up their game when it comes to the desert to match the rest of the tasting menu. The service was professional and the wine selection was excellent. We will definitely repeat.
We had an excellent experience celebrating an anniversary! Thank you!
Everything was timed perfectly. Our cocktails were nicely considered takes on classics. The staff gave our table the same impeccable attention to detail that the chef clearly gave each course. Frances expertly guided us from start to finish with good recommendations and even better personality. Looking forward to the next visit.
Beautiful view from the window tables. The tables are nicely spaced. I particularly liked the fact that the window tables are offset from the windows by few feet so that the waiters can move freely to either side of the table and never have to reach across the table to serve food, fill water, or take away plates.
The food was excellent, although the portions are not large. The tasting menu looked quite good, but we didn't have time, so we ordered a la carte. We were served two delicious amuse-bouches.
As we left we were given small gift boxes which contained candies of some sort (still haven't eaten them).
This is the best restaurants I have ever been,wonderful night.
Celebrating anniversary in style.
We dined at Meritage and we were celebrating my wife’s birthday. The view, food and the experience was flaw less and top notch.
Amazing service and food. Will be back.
Like that they have small plates again as well as large plates. Prices are reasonable. Nice variety of choices. Great menu. Food is very well prepared and tasty. Wonderful presentation. Chef taste is a nice touch.
Lovely evening with lifelong friends. From arrival to departure everything happened seamlessly. The mushroom bisque was rich and mushroom meaty, we were almost said when we finished it. The halibut was light and flavorful. A very generous portion with perfect accompaniments. Everyone who interacted with our table was professional and courteous. We had a table overlooking the harbor and watched twilight arrive. Really beautiful! And the noise level was what we were looking for. We wanted to catch up and feared a cacophony. It was perfect for conversation. We highly recommend Meritage
Wonderful staff, delicious food and beautiful scenery.
The food was excellent and kudos to the chef for having such a great menu. However, the service was not so great- specifically timing. It felt as if other tables got more attention than our table. For example the table next to us was constantly having their silverware replaced while for us it took quite some time. Also, the bread dish remained on the table throughout the night , even though we pushed it to the side and it was empty. For the $$ value, in my opinion the service could have been more on point.
Meritage never ceases to impress. The 6 course chef tasting with wine pairing is absolutely amazing and the level of service is 2nd to none.
Highly, highly recommend
Always one of are favorite places to go. It’s a classy high end restaurant overlooking the water. Food is always made to perfection a lot with the wait staff being terrific. I would recommend to anyone looking for a special dinner night
Amazing! Great food, and ambient. The service is extraordinary, the waiters seem to be really happy to serve. It is super nice to be in a place where they remember you and call you by name.
The staff was on point and the experience was outstanding!
Good location, beautiful setting and excellent service. Food is average.
Attentive staff, a knowledgeable Sommelier together with great food. A wedding anniversary we will remember. Thank you so much.
Dinner here was a bit disappointing. We picked the octopus as first course - the dish proved to be mediocre: the octopus was on the bland side, the sauce and accompaniments were overly spicy and featuring falcors that didnt match well with the octopus, and the overall technical execution was below average. The entrees of Halibut and Scallops proved to be much better - the scallops dish being well balanced and very nicely done, with excellent products. Desert was also on the diappointing side: the (deconstructed) ''apple pie' had apples which were undercooked, and the 'palet d'or'' (a classic French chocolate cake) was a bit dry instead of beig creamy and voluptuous as it should be. Service was very attentionate but a bit stiff and there were very few diners. The overall impression is that a real chef doesnt inhabit this place, which is rather operated as a business which has lost sight of a real passion for cuisine.
Serene & scrumptious! Impeccable service & decor! Perfect for our night “on the town” in Boston...
Excellent food and amazing wine list! We had a wonderful dinner and highly recommend this restaurant.
Great food! Chef Daniel Bruce is a master! Wine pairings are spot on.
Took my wife here for a valatines dinner, and we were blown away by how well you are taken care of. We were greeted graciously, taken to our table. Our waiter introduced himself and answered all our questions, as well as his recommendation. We decided on the Valentine special 6 course meal with the wine pairing, and what a meal it was! Everything was amazing! And once again before each meal, we were introduced to the wine that would go with our meal and explained it's origin. The restaurant itself is beautiful, from the table setting to the environment. It isn't crowded with other customers and the music is not loud and not to quite to enjoy. Everything about this place is just wonderful! Highly recommend!
I love this restaurant, and would always recommend his as a true food experience. The complaint this time was the shortage of staff. Though the restaurant was not busy, it seemed the server had little time and the sommelier continuously left my glass empty.
