"Sadly, our recent dining experience was too rushed. Our reservation was plenty early enough to avoid the appearance of trying to rush us through a dinner to enable an early close of the business that evening. There were plenty of open tables, and only one other family arrived after us with 2 hours before scheduled closing time. 3 of our 4 steaks arrived at our table severely undercooked (blue). Dishes were whisked away while utensils were still in our hand. This experience detracted from the overall value considering the high priced selections. We had dined here twice before and was excellent all-around."

"We absolutely loved this place. Our waiter Jerome was very attentive to our every need. Our glasses stayed full. Everyone was very polite. The food was phenomenal. It was my husbands 55th birthday and he was truly celebrated. Thanks for making his birthday memorable."

"We had reservations for our anniversary and were very much looking forward to our evening. we sat in our booth for 15 min and only received water. no one came by to acknowledge us, or to say they would be by soon. I didn't see many people actually eating or being served around us- should have been a sign! this was a Friday evening at 7pm, so they should have been fully staffed! we left and had a lovely dinner elsewhere."

"As a former MARRIOTT employee for more than a decade, I wish I could say nice things about this outlet – I can't
It was a very average experience for a very premium price; not unlike many hotel/resort based restaurants"

"This is more a clubhouse for a no fees golf club than the high end steakhouse we were expecting. Our dinner was interrupted by a loud group of 3 slurring their words and yelling obscenities. We complained to the sommelier that they seemed over served and he got them another bottle of wine. Two bottles in 20 minutes! Management was not receptive to feedback on these members until after our meal. Dinner was ok but this is not suitable for kids or adults seeking a sophisticated dining experience. This should be a private clubhouse if they are going to allow golf members to scare other diners away."

"Large resorts with several restaurants may run the risk of suffering from large scale banquet-like cuisine, but not here! Meritage was a terrific surprise. Lovely and delicious prime rib. My wife and I both ordered a 10oz rare cut it was cooked perfectly rare but tipped the scales well over 10oz, a nice treat. Scallops with a sunchoke purée were amazing. Best scallops we've had since we lived in New England almost 20years ago; they were cooked perfectly and the genuine scallop flavor was prominent. Creative and well crafted cocktails. Attentive but not intrusive service. Terrific all around. Thank you!"

"I have to say this restaurant is only fair. It's in an upscale hotel so you would expect high prices but it really wasn't worth it. The Cesar salads were very bland. There weren't many vegetarian options (it IS a steakhouse), so I just had salad and appetizer. They were fine. And my boyfriend said the prime rib was very good. But the bread was very plain and almost stale. The service was spotty. The waitress was knowledgeable about the menu items and water was filled regularly. But once the food was served, we never saw anyone again for a long time. We finally got dessert which was good but nothing special. The place was very busy so you would think they would get you your bill and turn the table as fast as possible but it seemed like it took a LONG time to get the waitress to bring the check. Maybe I am too picky. It's an OK place but for the price, I'd find somewhere else to go"

"The food and service are both excellent the hostess Rodica will do her best to find the best table for your dinning. If you are lucky enough to have Suezan or Jackis as your server you will have a great dining experience."

"Our large group showed up with 1 additional person and was told we could not be accommodated at one table. There were clearly empty tables they could have rearranged on a slower week night. We ended up seating 2 others at a table next to the larger group table. Don't think they wanted to hassle with moving tables."

"It took almost an hour between our salads and our entrees. Our waitress disappeared during this window as well. When it finally arrived our dinners were mediocre. It was a pretty disappointing dinner overall."

"Meritage Steakhouse is an excellent on resort property restaurant. Indoor and outdoor tables are available. All employees are friendly and professional. An added treat is to ask for Jackie as your server she is a gem."

"We had an excellent dinner. Food, service, atmosphere were all on-point for this class of restaurant. Wine list nicely organized with some very good bottles that were not ridiculously over-priced."

"We thoroughly enjoyed our filets and the awesome choices of add-ons to personalize our menu choice. I particularly loved my oysters. The only mild dissappointment was the Southwestern Manhattan. The liquors are all top shelf, but it was finished with a very generic, jarred maraschino cherry."

"We visited Meritage Steak House during our stay at The Desert Ridge Resort over the 2016 Valentine's Day weekend. Since we were unfamiliar with the area, we decided that the resort's steakhouse would probably work well for us, and we made reservations well in advance. The meal was very good and the service was wonderful, but I feel like for the prices, it should be outstanding. Our group of 4 enjoys exceptional wines and brought two for the special Valentine's dinner, but the restaurant does not allow you to bring your own wine. We are all accustomed to fine dining and this was the first establishment to disallow this. It is obvious that the restaurant prefers the profit on their over priced wine to the accommodation of their guests. As a result, our dinner for 4 resulted in a $550 bill. If we visit the area again, we will likely dine outside of the resort."

"This restaurant knocked it out of the park with food quality and service. It's very expensive I suppose because it's at the JW resort. We ate there again while staying at the resort and all was good again, especially because business associates paid the tab!"
