Eat here! Fresh oysters, best béarnaise EVER. I've eaten here numerous times and it is always delicious. Lunch or dinner, there is a reason they have been open almost 10 years. Ask for Adriana.

I'd heard about it for years but this was my first time at Meritage. The atmosphere is typical French brasserie, bright, lots of windows. We were seated in a bay window and although it was February, the sun shining through at noon was almost too warm. I had read other reviews complaining about the noise level so I paid attention...

I have eaten at Meritage many times and have never been disappointed. The menu of French-style food offers great choices, they have a good wine list, and service has always been excellent. The space is small and if full, which is common, then it can be somewhat noisy making conversation difficult. That same smallness adds some intimacy to the setting,... More

I've been coming here for years, love it! Great service, atmosphere, and food. It's a french bistro restaurant, so they have fresh oysters! The Upper West Sider is one of my favorites.

Decided to stop for quick drinks and appetizers after the Women's March. Place was almost empty on arrival, total confusion with orders -after we waited for a long time to have anyone come to our table. Could see our martini sitting on the bar for 15 minutes and no one brought it over.The real kicker was the attitude of the... More

We had a table of six...started with oysters...delicious. Great service...cool table by the Windows. We all ordered entrees, all hits. Dessert was good. Drinks good. Beer menu wasn't the best but tons of wine and whatnot. Great place.

As someone who works in downtown St. Paul and someone who has witnessed (and participated in) its revitalization, I feel qualified to say a few things about this place. The owners, Desta and Russell, clearly care about their product. And they seem to be doing well (hint: no one is going to add an oyster bar in downtown St. Paul... More
