Visited for a late lunch/snack and ended up at happy hour! Enjoyed wine, beer and a delicious chicken & mozza ball soup! The presentation was great with the server giving us the bowl with the mozzarella balls and then adding the delicious hot & most flavourful broth to it! We enjoyed fresh oysters and lamb sausage corn dogs as the... More

Attractive restaurant near the Ordway Center. Beautiful flower arrangements and antique mirrors highlight the interior inside the 1915 Hamm building. The pork medallions were generously served and succulent, topped with a bright green fennel/mustard crust combined with a small serving of pomme dauphines, tiny beets and grated rutabaga (wished there were more of each). The profiteroles with warm chocolate sauce... More

The prices at this place don't bother me. I was expecting to pay well for my meal. My friends and I arrived and ordered wine. After that we waited nearly 2.5 hours to get our food, and the staff only realized they had not apologized after two of those hours. We were all very hungry, and several of the other... More

I took my son to Meritage for his high school graduation. From the several varieties of raw oysters to the jumbo shrimp cocktail to the frog legs and the collapsible desert, Meritage offered a fun yet delicious eating experience. It wasn't cheap, but it was memorable. I'll never forget how big my son's eyes got when he saw those shrimp.... More

Happily, St. Paulites do not have to cross the river to have an oyster bar of their own. Known for their brunch menu, sadly this was unavailable to us as the kitchen was unaware we had been given the brunch menu as we sat at the outside eating area. Fortunately, our secondary decisions were easy as the lunch menu contained... More

We eat at Meritage more than any other place in St. Paul. Chief among the reasons is that we've never had anything close to a bad meal there, regardless of what we order. Quality control is top-notch. Bread is always fresh and crusty. Great seafood, including wonderful oysters, every day. Menu is quite varied so it's always easy to find... More

A favorite hang out for the bar with excellent wine, cocktails and appetizers. Awesome vibe and best frites west of Paris. A great and affordable burger and red glass of wine will not break the bank and much cheaper that flight to France. Highly recommended and consistent, professional staff.

Meritage is an English word--pronounced "MARE-Ah-TIJJ," not "Mare-ah-tahge"--but this bistro-style eatery would fit comfortably in Paris. Helmed by the chef/owner, Russell Klein, and co-owned with his wife, Desta, Meritage is, as the Michelin folks like to say, "worth a detour." If you like seafood, the oyster bar IS right out of Paris. There's a bar menu but you can also... More
