We had an amazing New Year's Eve dinner at Heritage. This wasn't our first visit. Each time it is better than the last. Wonderful staff, amazing food and beautiful wines. Can't wait to return.

Great, great meal at Meritage. Food is scrumptious: amusements, salads, soups, and main courses. We loved the squash and wild mushroom risotto and Tuesday special steak. Cheese plates after dinner just magnificent. Even the lettuce salad had an excellent dressing. Service was impeccable. I have eaten there before, and it is as good as ever--simply excellent.

Great atmosphere. It's the most "french" feeling restaurant in the Twin Cities. Great oyster bar and seafood, as well as beef and seasonal favorites. Personal favorites are the mussels, the cassoulet and the duck. If you like wines, trust Niko's recommendations! Chef Kline and his staff will make you feel at home. This can be a special occasion diner, or... More

Went there for B'day dinner with family. The seating is nothing special and it gets cramped with tables being too close to each other. So not very romantic or quiet seating if that's what you are looking for. The food is good. Oysters were good. Escargot was ok.. I have had better.. but the swordfish was excellent and my husband...

The food here is amazing! We had a large party that was celebrating a birthday. The food and service was perfect! They accommodated our larger party of 12 perfectly. They also allowed me to bring in special flowers to be placed on the table as part of the birthday surprise.

We really enjoyed our dinner at this restaurant. Even though it's clearly a "fine dining" restaurant, it feels like a brasserie; some folks were dressed up and others were not. There was also a big range of prices on the menu: from hamburgers ($15) to mussels and french fries ($24.50 and delicious) to some pricey options for seafood and several... More

A bit of old fashioned elegance never hurts, and Meritage has plenty! I love the view first of all, simple street view, but you feel like you're worlds away, and in a much better place. Service is generally superb with cuisine to match. I'm not sure Mussels can get much better than here, and why should they need to? Definitely... More

Had lunch here at the insistence of a casual acquaintance who is quite provincial in his world-view. Allegedly the hamburger was "grass-fed". I had to look. It was so dry I thought they served the grass. It was OK. Couldn't believe they would charge for Bernaise sauce. I wouldn't use it on a hamburger, but talk about cheap, cheap, cheap!... More

The server was very helpful with oyster information and wine guidance. I had a couple of the crispy duck rillettes to start things off and the Moules Frites and I was stuffed. They give you So many fries! Of course that didn't stop my wife and I from splitting a creme brulee for dessert.
