The food and service were excellent. It is a nice place.

Probably a one-off but the bar tender was in a loud political ‘discussion’ with a few bar patrons. No idea what it was about but there were raised voices and vulgarities. It was distracting for a few of the customers in the otherwise quiet dining room. An unexpected and unfortunate accompaniment to dessert.

Great location, delicious food. Took advantage of fixed price offer. Suggest more staff on such a busy night. Will definitely return.

Great little neighborhood gem with easy parking. Cocktails are fantastic and made with good ingredients. I always skip the maraschino cherry in my Manhattan because most places use the red dye, high fruit corn syrup variety but not here. My entree of duck on arugula, shaved fennel and peaches was amazing! Chef, please keep those fresh, seasonal ingredients the focus of your restaurant!

One of the best little local gems in Westchester. Smallish place with a nice bar. Wait-staff are the best. Knowledgeable and attentive. Food is equally excellent. It is my favorite to "fall into".

Service was excellent with very capable and friendly wait staff. Food was superb. The sauces were flavorful without being too spicy. Menu choices met everyone’s tastes. Dishes reminded us of really good Northern Italian food we had in Italy

The waiter was rushing us while tables were empty. We had to leave as the table next to us was a large noisy party. We would have ordered after dinner drinks but we went elsewhere . Not sure I would go back

Meritage in Scarsdale is a hidden gem! Convenience, outstanding service, great food and fantastic wine list and creative cocktails! Don't miss out on this gem in Scarsdale! Other restaurants come and go, but Meritage has withstood the test of time and continues to turn out a fantastic menu!
The only lingering question is the landlord and their greed of wanting to charge them even more rent then they are paying now! Scarsdale landlords already charge NYC type rents for the retail spaces, with only a fraction of the NYC population available to shop at them! I would rather see thriving, community, small businesses then vacant spaces. Meritage is a must-eat restaurant for anyone who has not been. Let it become your regular spot thereafter! They will remember you!

We enjoyed our experience for the most part. However when we ordered drinks they could not made as they were out of one of the ingredients and my husband’s second choice, which was one of their specialty cocktails, could not be made either. The waitress then made a suggestion of an alternative which was fine. The food was delicious but as the restaurant got more crowded the wait staff were stretched and our waitress seemed to disappear.

Overpriced moderately good French food. Service is unschooled. Mediocre ambiance. Maybe go Wednesday’s for half price wine.

Went to explore Meritage for restaurant week, Sunday brunch. Food was excellent, really a cut above other places. The Mimosa bar was extra special: bring your own champagne and you can try several mixers to create various versions of Mimosas. So fun and only $6 per person!

Standard dishes on the menu but deliciously done. A quiet environment, older crowd in the dining room.
