The location is only one block from Broadway, quiet street but lots of parking. The restaurant had unique decor and it felt both causal but a bit more formal with the the white tablecloths. Amazing wine selection. The food options were varied. The meat and cheese appetizer was awesome and more than enough. Very knowledgeable about wine and gave us the perfect pairing!! We were very impressed by the service and our experience there. We will return!!!

My girlfriend and I really enjoyed the dinner and atmosphere of the restaurant. Our waitress was cordial and even the owner, if I am not mistaken, checked on us during our meal. I gave restaurant 4 stars for food and value simply because the food was a little too sparse for the price I paid. Either a tad more food for the money or a little cheaper price would be nice. Regardless, the food and atmosphere were great and we may very well return again sometime.

We were looking for a place to eat while visiting Columbus for Thescon. The restaurant was highly rated, so we decided to give it a try. The food was very good; the ambiance nice; service very good; and the wine list surprisingly good for a small city. We had a Bordeaux Superieur that was a good value and got better with every sip. We look forward to going again the next time we're in town.

Meritage has become our go-to restaurant for special occasions - although it's truly a great spot for any time you want a great meal from a creative menu, served with attention to detail in a great atmosphere. The fact the owner visits - and I mean "VISITS" every table...not just a "hope things are good" fly-by - makes a huge difference.

We were there for a combined anniversary and double birthday dinner, and everything was so good. The only downside was our lack of preparedness for the Mexican Street Potato Chips served with the fish tacos - so spicy our delicate gringo palates could not handle them. But the fish tacos were extraordinary and the Andouille Crusted Chicken Breast over fettuccine was remarkable. The fourth meal was a Salmon BLT, which our guest found to have just too much bun for supper. But the salmon itself was delicious.

Not inexpensive - with an appetizer, two side salads and a cocktail, dinner for four was right at $95 before tax - but not overpriced at all. Hate that they have to relocate because their building has been sold. One thing is certain - we'll follow them wherever they land.

this restaurant is quickly becoming one of my favorite. Centrally located in Uptown Columbus, great menu choices and great service. I will always chose Meritage for my pre-event dining.

We attended the New Year’s Eve tasting-pairing event. The owner introduced each pairing and told about each item. She also visited the tables throughout the event to ask how we were enjoying everything and to make conversation. The food was amazing, but of course it was small portions for the tasting menu. My only complaint is the servers would take your plates while you were still eating and drinking. This made us feel rushed to eat and drink.

My friends and I had dinner here last Saturday as a celebratory dinner. This place is simply amazing. The food from the drinks to the appetizer was scrumptious! The service and ambience was over the top great. We were running late with our initial reservation and we had no problem in getting it pushed back when we called to advise. Even though we arrived about 30 min before they closed, we were not rushed or experienced that getting ready to close ordeal. I've eating at many Farm to Table resturants around the country and this is hands down Top on my list. I will definitely go back if I'm ever in Columbus again. I would highly recommend this place if, wonderful prepared food, outstanding service and a cozy atmosphere is what you are looking for on your next dinner out.
