They have the best asparagus menu. We sat at the bar and started with escargot and oysters on the half shell, all very delicious. We ordered off of the asparagus menu and had the Halibut and the diced asparagus with bacon. We shared those two items. The Halibut was a small portion, but it was perfectly cooked. It melted in your mouth!! for desert we had the asparagus ice cream, and that was also amazing. We will definitely be back.

Very disappointing. First the Mimosa, too expensive for the poor quality. Besides, it was served in what ever glasses they had. Not in a flute stem glass as should be. The quality of the champagne, if it was champagne, terrible. Worst head ache ever. The Pomme frites, poor, over cooked. The hamburgers could have been better. You can get better hamburgers anywhere. They were lukewarm They charge 2.50 for less than an Oz. of Bearnaise sauce. Ridiculous. The quiche was dry. It looks like it was baked at 5 in the morning. Nothing was aceptable for what they say they are. No more Meritage. There are many excellent restaurants for a better quality and service.

We loved the seafood appetizer, which featured an icy tower of oysters, crab, and jumbo shrimp. The entrees were delicious, including the vegetarian pastry entree. The bread was crusty, fresh, and hot. The mocktails were light and delicious.

There is no doubt that this restaurant offers some of the best fine dining in the Twin Cities, but after a recent week night dinner experience there, I came to the reluctant conclusion that the evening had been spoiled by the inability to communicate not only with others at my table but also with the otherwise attentive wait staff. When my server had to verify my order of skate three times, finally resorting to screaming "fish?" at me so as to make sure I wasn't ordering steak, it was clear that the combined effect of the sound system and the raised voices of other diners made normal conversation impossible. I just returned from a six-week trip to France where noise levels in restaurants contribute to civilized dining. I so hoped that a great restaurant like Meritage would be able to provide a comparable ambiance.
